Common Gtech Hedge Trimmer Problems:
The Trimmer No Longer Cuts for as Long as it Should:
If you are finding that the cutting time of your Gtech hedge trimmer has significantly reduced then there are a few things to check.
The first thing to do is to ensure that the battery is fully charged. If after charging the battery you are still experiencing the problem, then it may indicate a fault with either the battery or charger. The defective item will need to be replaced.
A reduced cutting time can also occur if the blades are lacking lubrication or if the blade is damaged in any way.
Another possible cause of this fault is overloading the motor. Your Gtech hedge trimmer is designed to cut branches of certain widths, if you are using the hedge trimmer on thicker branches than recommended this can have a detrimental effect on cutting performance.
The Hedge Trimmer isn't Working:
If your trimmer isn't working there a number of possible causes. The first thing to check is that the blade is not blocked or obstructed in anyway. Remember, when checking or repairing any appliance you need to make safety you main priority. Disconnect the power.

The Trimmer Head has Stopped Rotating:
All models of Gtech hedge trimmers feature a rotating cutting head to make it easier to achieve a neat and tidy finish.

To check that it is just a slipped gear that is causing the problem you need to remove the 4 screws that attach the blade to the head and detach the blade. In the head there will be 2 bolts that fit into two holes, if one or more of them have come loose simply reattach them and refit the blade to complete the repair.
