Question about Black & Decker Garden

1 Answer

I have a black and decker leaf hog and I accidentally sucked up a wash cloth. I took the handle off the tube and took the wash cloth out. It was not shredded or anything, but when I put the handle back on, it won't turn on. Is there a breaker on it somewhere? Thank you, Ann

Your leaf blower does not have a reset button unfortunately. The motor is a double insulated design and does not have any serviceable parts, the motor heads are replaced as a complete unit. There is one thing you can check. Since the wash cloth placed a huge strain on the motor, which in turn, increased the ampere in the circuit, it may have tripped a circuit breaker in your house fuse panel, causing no power to the outlet you were using.

Where do i switch theLEAF HOG FROM VACUUM TO BLOWER


Remove vaccuum tube. Allow the access door for the vacuum tube to shut all the way. Attatch the blower tube where you had the collection back for the vaccuum attatched. That is it.

I can not get the Leaf Hog to swtich from vacumn to blower. Any suggestions?


it does not "switch"

The air intake becomes the vacuum with an attachment. The "blower tube" is then the vacuum exhaust.

the motor does not change directions.

Black and Decker leaf hog, worked fine last use.


I posted this solution on another similar thread, but it may pertain here.
I have this unit. Mine stopped working today after being warm on the handle the last few uses. I opened the unit up (torx 15) and smelled, then found that a fused wire coming off the motor had burned/melted/separated at a plastic plug right inside the handle. I'm not sure if it had anything to do with it, but in this same compartment of the handle there was an anti-theft strip floating around. I called BandD and they said the BV4000 type ONE has been recalled. http://www.cpsc.gov/cpscpub/prerel/prhtml07/07005.html

Leaf Hog trouble


The carbon brushes wear out after a few years .B&D does not carry replacements . I took out one of the old brushes and found an exact replacement at an electronics parts surplus store . The replacement didn't have the little endcap on it so I used the ones from the old brushes and pigtailed the connector wire .
Its been working fine since !
