My TE14 wants to start and stop and start while I am constantly holding the button. What can I do to make this stop? I have taken it apart and it seems to help for a little while, but it still does it after I am in the yard for a while. I love the TE14 and I don't want to get rid of it.
The copper wire that connects to the little magnets is broken inside my weed eater, can this be replaced or is it better to get a new weed eater?
From what you described I think you are looking for the carbon motor brushes. Unfortunately the motor brushes are not offered separately for this tool. Many times a damaged brush wire can be a telltale of a motor problem as well. The most common cause of a damaged brush wire is overheating. Often times if the brush wire was hot enough to fail the motor likely suffered damage as well. The motor assembly is part #530402516 and is available from http://ereplacementparts.com.
I hope this helps with your repair!
