Before turning on your device, make sure it is plugged in. The Black and Decker High Performance Blower has a power cord that needs to be plugged in to work.

Power Button is broken ¶ 

If the power button is stuck or nothing happens when you switch it on, replace the power button.

Switch is broken ¶ 

It is possible for the switch to break or accidentally disconnect from the power button. If this happens, disassemble the device and either reconnect or replace the switch.

The powerhead assembly is the orange portion of the device, containing the fan and motor. Replace powerhead assembly if it is damaged.

The device turns on but there is no air coming out of the blower tube.

Something is stuck in the fan ¶ 

If the device has no air coming out of it or you hear a rattling noise within it, open up the cover/clamshell of the device and check if something is stuck in the fan. If the fan is stuck, clean and unclog it.
