Trimmer gets very hot while operating

Hi Folks,

I purchased my Toro string trimmer maybe something like a year ago and never had any issues with it, but now the device began to overheat while trimming my yard the other day. Can anyone help me fix this?


Hello Rob,

You mention that the device is about one year old, I recommend that you check the air inlet vents as several months of use can cause small debris and clippings to get stuck in the hole, restricting air flow and causing the extra heat. Clean out the vents with a damp cloth.
