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

1 Answer

Re: GH1000 Trimmer - looks like the drive belt from the motpor to trimmer shaft either broke or came off. I removed all the housing screws but the housing seems stuck at the button where you can rotate the shaft to be either a trimmer or edger. Any clues on hidden screws, etc still holding that tight or how to seperate them?? thx Paul

I just bought a BD Grass Hog and after 1 h of use,


If the noise was up by the handle it may have been the drive pulley breaking loose of the shaft on the motor causing the motor to spin and stop the flex shaft of the trimmer. Another possibility would be the small belt that aids the flex shaft. If those don't fix the problem check the lock nut that bolts the flex shaft to the spool housing. If the shaft broke free from the housing the motor would still run and the shaft would turn, but the spool housing would not spin if it does it could be stopped very easily. Definately check the warranty.

I believe what you need to do is remove the 3 screws on the trimmer head to remove the head from the lower shaft. After the head is off you can look down into where the shaft goes and be able to use some needlenose pliers or something of the sort to pull the broken part out.<!-- from fixya rte -->

Trying to remove a clutch rotor assembly on a craftsman trimmer and not sure how to remove it. looks like it unscrews from the shaft


It does unscrew from the shaft. The Torx screw holding it is hidden and doesn't come out of the housing once it is loosened. It is screwed into the end of the shaft. You will have to keep the engine from turning to loosen it. Pull spark plug out and move piston to bottom of stroke. Put some nice, soft, clean rope in the cylinder and let the piston compress it when you turn the Torx screw in the clutch rotor housing.

GH1000 Motor runs but spool just quit working.this is electric.


Same thing happened to me. The belt broke. You'll need to take off all the screws to change the belt. There's a hidden screw under the black label. Feel around for the soft spot.

Black & Decker gh1000 trimmer head not spinning


The same thing happened to me. You either have a ruined belt pulley, or, hopefully, the belt burned out. Belts are easy to find online, but the housing is tricky to remove - see other posts.

I finally got it the plastic housing apart on my trimmer (there is one screw hidden under the label), only to find a total meltdown. The plastic pulley is ruined, and the only way to get it replaced is to buy a new motor (the most expensive part).

If your trimmer is no longer under warranty, then you can get a refurbished gh1000 for the price a new motor unit.

Take apart method to replace rubber drive belt.


I had the same dillema, till I discovered a soft spot on the label. They put one last screw there. I got the housing open and discovered the belt was broken. Ordered a new belt ($12.39) through ACE Hardware repair center, now I can't get the belt on. That is why I came to this site.
The Ace guy told me he has had lot of calls for this particular belt. If you order one, I suggest you order two.
Good luck.

GH1000 string trimmer


This is for the Black and Decker GH1000 string trimmer. There are 20 screws to remove altogether. The last screw is under the black label with instructions on using the button to extend the shaft. The screw hole is just above the white line on the label-you have to poke a hole in the label! Very tricky!
