Weedeater line breaks all the time?

This is one of the best tips i have come upon myself. one time i was fixing the broken string trimmer line again and the string was very dry. i tried spraying it with WD40 and what a miricle. now everytime i change the line i spray the line several times with WD40 as i am wrapping it. this has completely stopped all those nuissance episodes when the line melts to itself and then breaks off. try this and you to will be amazed at how wonderful it is to be able to run your weedeater until the line runs out and then you replace it without all those stops in between!

The line keeps unwinding! The Worx trimmer seems to unwind the line when ever it decides too! What is the problem?


The spool can be defective, but it may be just affected by trash in the spool where it mounts to the machine. Look at this tip. There is a place at the end of it that explains how to clean and lubricate the spool. If you cannot fix the problem with this tip, replacement is probably your best option. Try it first.

string will not advance on black and decker grass hog electric trimmer

Did you re-string it? If you did it is possible that you crossed the string over itself and it is stuck. Check that and good luck...Lee

You need to clean the carb. or you may need to buy a carb. kit. But do a cleaning on it first. If you need tips on how to best do this, just let me know. Also check the fuel lines for cracks. As they age, they become brittle.
