Question about Garden
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.

All you need to do is grab the bump knob end and pull it straight off no turning
wind your line in the direction the arrows on the spool shows you
to put back insert line or lines into the holes and snap back on
be sure the spool is able to move up and down freely after install

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.
