Small Engine Problems? Ask an Engine Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello and welcome to JustAnswer! This is James, I'm an Engineer with over 10 years of experience, and I'll be assisting you today.
Sorry to hear your appliance is having issues, please stand by while I find the answer for you, this is not an immediate service however I will try and respond as soon as possible.The hedge trimmer is getting to the end of its expected life, to confirm the flex and plug are all in good condition if you tape the handle \ trigger is there no life at all (not even for a second)?
Without the information requested I can only provide generic advice at this stage, but happy to elaborate once you provide the addition info.For now I hope you may find this initial guidance useful.
Most likely the fault will be electrical relating to the switch having failed and not allowing power to go to the motor so would suggest you consider replacing the switch.
It was a pleasure to assist you today. I hope the above answers the question. If you have any follow up questions then please let me know.
