Question about Black & Decker String Trimmer Cordless 12" 18V

2 Answers

Black and Decker st4000 CORDED electric trimmer/edger

I plugged in the trimmer and was using it for approximately 5 minutes when it stopped working. I tried plugging it into another outlet on the chance that I blew a fuse at my home. No luck. Is there an internal fuse on the trimmer I should be looking for to replace? If not, what other things might cause it to stop working?

    Same deal here. Hit the line up against the side of the house by mistake and then nothing. I have not taken it apart yet to troubleshoot but I'm not pleased.

Black and decker edger overheats and shuts off


Use a better extension cord. Buy a extension cord with 12 gauge wire. The longer the cord, the more electrical resistance there is, which causes heat. Therefore use the smallest length of cord possible.

Describe your Black & Decker


Take the casing apart and I bet one of the wires for the cord pulled out. I bought a brand new ryobi sawsall,used it ten minutes and it quit. Was going to throw it away but decided to open the casing and the black wire pulled out of the terminal,it was a five minute fix swear to God!
