Question: RE: The Trigger/#62
My name is Seth. I am looking for the Trigger numbered 62 above in the diagram. If someone knows about this trigger and where I may purchase it, please let me know. I have the full assembly and all parts but I need to replace the trigger because of one section of the trigger that has broken.
Question: No Power
B&D LE500 edger was working fine then all of a sudden it won't operate when plugged in. Checked power source multiple times, no luck. don't see switch available on parts list, any ideas?
Reply: No Power
There is no switch connection inside this unit. Take electrical cover plate(black) off motor housing and you will see the brush and holder parts attached inside a slot. Carefully pull them out to inspect. If they are corroded, clean them up best you can. If they are damaged(bent, broken)plan on replacing them. Once they are reinserted, plug in unit and carefully test motor in on position(with blade removed of course).Worked for me.
Reply: Edger Blade
Start by removing the blade cover, item #27 on the parts diagram. Now you will have access to the blade bolt, item #28. Hold the blade or wedge a piece of wood between the blade and the housing and use a wrench to loosen the bolt. With the bolt removed you can remove the old blade and replace it with a new one. The blade is part #383112-01.
I hope this helps,
Question: B&D LE500 Edger Overheating And ...
The last time I used my electric Black & Decker LE500 edger it started smoking and eventually lost the ability to continue edging through tough grass.
How can I tell what parts need to be replaced and what parts would be recommended to accomplish a complete repair, e.g.,
1) Armature & Fan
3) Brush & Holder
4) what other possible parts might be needed.
Any assistance in this matter will be greatly appreciated. Thank you. Jack
Question: Blade Removal
The blade seems really tight. Do I need a puller or should it just "wiggle" it off after removing the lock nut that holds it to the drive shaft?
Reply: Blade Removal
I removed the blade by placing a Vice Grip tool on the blade to stop it from moving. I then sprayed some lubricant on the nut and shaft. A 9/16" wrench was put on the nut, and I hit the wrench with a hammer to loosen it.
Question: Electrial Short???
My B&D electric lawn edger will run and then stop. I pull trigger several times and it runs then stops. It has been getting worse each time I use it. Any ideas of what might be the problem?
Reply: Electrial Short???
check the switch connections in the handle. sometimes the wire pull out of the back of the switch just push back in
Review: RE: LE 500 And Black And Decker/...
My name is Seth. I was looking into the LE 500 from Black and Decker. It is an older modeled, electric grass edger. I was hoping to find the trigger but this site does not have the #62 trigger in the diagram.
If someone knows about a replacement or the actual location of the trigger and has photographs of it, please let me know. My trigger has a missing component on it that broke off due to high activity and the switch does not work due to this specific trigger piece.
So, in retrospect, please let me know if you hold or carry a LE 500 (Black and Decker) #62 trigger. Most likely, it is orange.
Review: Black And Decker - LE500 Owner
This is the best product I have ever used. I have used it for at least 20 yrs or so; it makes string trimmers look like amateurs. But it looks like they don't make it anymore.

Oh they make it but now its a piece of junk. like most B&D stuff
