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

Weedwacker wont turn off

I have a Black and Decker CST 1000 trimmer (cordless) and while trimming my yard the other day the weedwacker suddenly would not turn off and only ran at full speed. Nothing I did to the pull trigger would change this and I eventually had to put the trimmer down and just let the battery run out. Any ideas how to fix this? Thanks!!

It sounds like a defective switch (part number 243614-00). You can order it at: http://www.blackanddecker.com/CustomerCenter/Parts.aspx for about $5 plus shipping.

We have a Black and Decker CST 1000 and other than the convenience of no cord, it constantly has problems. Won't hold a charge, spool holder cap broke and we can't find the part, handle cracked and finally broke. We have a black and decker blower and it won't turn off either. Fortunately it's corded so we can just unplug it. No more Black and Decker for us.

Weed trimmer, cst 1000


Hi, I just had a similar problem and figured it out - maybe we have the same problem.

I had dropped the unit in the grass and upon picking it up it wouldn't work. I found that the battery compartment was ever so slightly misaligned from the rest of the unit. I pushed the battery compartment and the unit so it aligned properly and it resumed working.

It was a simple solution for me - hopefully you'll find an easy answer, too.

You've got to be kidding. My battery is useless after only about 5 years. I've already purchased the new battery for $35. Does anybody know how to replace it?
