SOURCE: Long reach hedge trimmer
Try loosening the bolts up on the blades just enough to allow the washers to move freely a little, spray the blades down (but don't soak them ) with WD40 to lubricate the blades, that should solve it. If that doesn't do it then you may need to pull the gear housing cover off to see if something is jammed.

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.

There should be a strainer on the fuel intake line in the fuel tank. Take it out and clean or replace it, and check the fuel lines for cracks or leaks. If this doesn't fix it, disassemble and clean the primer button. There should be a little one way flap valve that opens to allow fuel to be sucked in from the fuel tank and closes to push the fuel into the carburetor.

The problem was with a stripped gear on a mcculloch hedge trimmer. I chucked it on the scrap heap and am borrowing my father-in-law's machine until I have time to shop for a new trimmer. Problem solved, but sadly not owing to your service this time.

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.
