Hi,
Your hedge cutter is toast....motors run on smoke and when the smoke comes out they no longer run....:-)
Given that a hedge cutter is not all that much money to replace... trying to repair it will not be worth it...
Your best bet is to just get a new one...

Did you ever oil the cutters since you have owned it? Try this spray some PB Blaster on the cutters let it soak and then try running it. If you can't find that stuff just try some motor oil, pour it on let it soak and give it a whirl. Good Luck...

Can i replace my cord for my hedge cutters


YES

You need the same quality cable and you need to dismantle the cutter to get to the mains connection.

If you are not up to all this then get a garden repair place to do it for you - SAFETY FIRST

I have a 22inch Craftsman Hedge Trimmer, Model No. 315.81591. When trimming a hedge near a chain-link fence, one of the steel links from the fence got caught between the blade guard and the cutter blade. ...


The likely issue is the gear pin has been sheared. The part is no longer available from Craftsman. (P/N from sears: 616255-001)

I had a similar issue with a similar electric trimmer. I removed the old pin and used a split pin and ground it down to the proper size. It's now worked for about 2 years just fine. This requires complete dis-assembly.

Motor stopped working (apparently burned out) when hedge cutter was used to cut through some thickish branches- is this worth repairing or should I just buy another one.


If it's truly smoked, than in some cases it might be cheaper to just by a new one. The motor could be close to the same price as a new trimmer but check out websites or maybe even ebay do a little research first.

Thihl HL75 hedge trimmer engine will not run at full speed


Remove the cutting attachment, insert a screwdriver in to the shaft receptor and it should operate smooth with a slight bit of friction. if not then check the blade bolts and make sure the blades move freely. Lubricate the blades and the gearbox regularly. If the attachment end is good then turn the driveshaft by hand (with attachment still off shaft). If this too moves freely then go to the clutch.
