Poulan WeedEater Spool Change

Hi Ginko,
I have a Poulan WeedEater, TE 15 (little one) and I want to add line to the spool. I THOUGHT all I had to do was to push the middle part down, turn it counter clockwise and it would come out with the spool. Well, it doesn't work that way. It goes down, turns counterclockwise, but then it is STUCK. Now what??? Please advise.
Ooops. As I understand it, there is no charge for this advice/solution. If there is a charge, I am sorry for bothering you, and I don't want you to go any further.
Thanks. Jerry

SOURCE: Can't get weedeater spool head loose to change the line.

there is three types of heads push, screw, and snap. The screw type have a big ball looking thing on the bottom that when pressed lets the line out. the snap kind are verry distinctive they slid in and two tongs snap in to place you will be able to see them on the out side. the push head just push in and turn.

Just bought a TE475. can't figure out how to replace the line compared to the traditional one-line configuration I am used to


Here is the info from the manual, the replacement line is put in near the center of the spool on the top of it, you simply feed it in. I have included a link to the manual so you can see the pictures. Look at page 10 for these instructions.

How to restring my weedeater. it's a poulan pro 25cc.


Pull the spool straight off of the machine. There are arrows on the bottom of the spool indicating the winding direction. Also, there are holes in the spool. Place the line in the hole just enough to hold it while you are winding the line. Not too far, say 1/8".
Wind the outer spool first, and put the end in the notch when the spool is full. Leave about a 6" tail and cut the line. Now wind the inner spool, and place the line in the notch that is 180 degrees from the first line's notch. Leave about a 6" tail, and cut this line off. Now, turn the spool toward the machine. While holding the spool, thread both tails of line through the grommets on the machine head, and work the spool onto the head. The tails should feed out the grommets as you do this. Seat the spool, you'll feel it click into place. Tug on the ends of the line to pull the line out of the notches. You're done!
Best regards, --W/D-- please feel free to rate this carefully hand-crafted solution! --thanx!--

How do i replace a spool on the weedeater xt110. I cannot seem to get the spool to release and I do not have the owner's manual.


Just line up the two arrows across from each other to those on the the spool housing on the bottom of the spool. Then grip the bump knob and pull straight out. It takes a good grip and some force, but it usually gives way.

Cannot get spool out of Poulin Weedeater Lite


There should be a round knob at the bottom of the spool where the string is. Twist off counter clockwise and the spool of string will drop off.

I have a weedeater brand weedeater and need to know how to take the spool off so I can wind more line on it?


if its the newer type all you need to do is grab the black knob at the bottom of the trimmer head and pull it carefully straight towards you and it should pop off
wind line on the spool in the direction the arrow shows you there is a small hole you put the line in to start the line before you wind it it is labeled .065 or .080
wind about 10-15 feet of either .065 line or .080 line and lock the line in at the edge of the spool and thread the excess thru the hole and push spool back on and pull each line until it unhooks from where you locked it in .
this is the directions to the weedeater heads and spools mostly used on this product.

if its two lines then pull out 20 feet of new line cut it and put the two cut ends side by side and insert the cut ends into their respective holes in the spool and wind in the direction of the arrow until you wind to the loop then cut the loop lock your lines into place and thread it thru both holes keeping the lines kind of tight and push the spool onto the housing as it snaps in pull each line to unlock it from where they were held so the bump feed will work.

hope this helps you
