My Black and Decker Grasshog CST1000 electric trimmer had a bad
switch. The circuit got stuck closed. We opened the handle and
disconnected the wire to stop the motor. The little brownish 1'' x 1/2
'' rectangle box must be the switch. It's marked with
DEFOND 20.5 A 16(6)A SE4T105
I called the service center. Before they ordered the part for me, can
I find the part somewhere on the Web so I can verify by the picture?
They told me to search on dewaltservicenet.com but I didn't find it
there. Thanks for help.
If the trimmer is less than two years old, send the whole contraption to
B&D. They'll fix it free. You can tell the date by looking for something
stamped in the plastic of the form: "200747" (means the sucker was built in
the 47th week of 2007).
We just sent our Grasshog to our local service center because the big
internal gear was no longer a gear.
I suppose if you wanted to do the work yourself, you could send them the
defective switch and ask for an exact replacement.
