The waves trap groups of twigs and prevent them from sliding along the blade during the cut, which ensures a uniform finish to the hedge.

The recommended sharpening angle is at 30-degrees. Be sure to sharpen both sides of the blade evenly at the right cutting angle. Wipe off any debris from the sharp blades with a clean cloth before reattaching it to the hedge trimmer.
If you notice the branches you`re working on are being cut unevenly or are frayed, this is an sign that the blades need to be sharpened. Sharpening the blades may solve this issue without having to replace any parts. Another issue that you may encounter is bent teeth on your trimmer`s blades.

If you only used it three times from new then I would take it back to where I bought it.
Blades wont move when power connected. Stripped it down. Motor is fine. I think it must be the gears attached to the blade unit
