Question: Replace Or Sharpen?
I have a fairly old HT 500 type 3 and need the blade to be sharper. Can it be sharpened or should I replace it?
Reply: Replace Or Sharpen?
Get a small file and sharpen yourself. I have for years. No big deal.
Question: Trimmer Won
I cut the extension cord while using the trimmer the other day. After I plugged it back in with a new 40' 16gauge extension cord, the hedge trimmer will not work. I tried using on multiple plug power outlets and still won't work.
Did I do something to the hedge trimmer when I cut the first extension cord? Any advice?

I would suspect that when the cord was cut it most likely shorted out one of the electrical components. The most likely parts that would have failed are the switch or item #20 which appears to be a circuit board of some sort. Unfortunately both of these parts are discontinued. The switch appears to be a simple slide switch. A trip to Radio Shack may provide a suitable replacement. If the circuit board is bad then it will likely be time to retire the trimmer.
Good luck with your repair!
