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

1 Answer

Black and Decker Grass Hog Model #GH1000

I was using the trimmer and all of a sudden the string stop rotating. The motor still made noise but was not engaging the cutting head of the trimmer.

    Hi,

    That sounds logical. The "clamp bolt" you refer to is down by the head of the trimmer somewhere? I don't need to take the trimmer apart up by the motor, correct?

    I will try this tomorrow.

    I will let you know what I find.

    Thank you!

Here is the instruction manual direct from Black & Decker for the GH1000 XP model. You may or may not have the twin string head, but all instruction manuals are available from their site. As close as I can figure, this pertains to your model.

I need a new spring to replace the lost one that makes the spool advance. Its a Grass hog that is a few years old. Not battery powdered, but electric. Can yoy tell me where to buy one or what size...


They have upgraded the old string heads (type 1) to a new string head (type 2). They say type 1 is no longer available. Please see part numbers 20 & 21 in this 14" Grass Hog parts breakdown diagram. The new string head is relatively inexpensive. If you don't want to get one, could I suggest you take the old spring (if you have it) and match it up with possibly a new spring at the hardware store. Sometimes you get lucky! Here is the parts diagram for it. Hope this helps!

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.

Motor spins, shaft does not...


I'm in a similar situation with my GH1000, except that it was a part that comes with whole motor assembly. I could sell you the shaft assembly of my trimmer, or I'll buy your motor assembly. Yes?
