How do I get spool housing off as string is wrapped around the metal part sticking up out of the middle of the housing. This is underneath the housing so I can't get to it, unless I take it off. How would I do that.

There are two or more types,
1: provided the spool is full and wound on correctly, to increase the length of nylon you tap the head of the snipper on the ground while it's spinning. This should release extra cutting string.
2: others are simply feed by the centrifugal force governed by a spring in the head. When you wrap the nylon string around the spool, then feed the nylon out the holes provided, the weight of the nylon string pulls the required amount of nylon out so you can continue to work.
Others are manual, simply pull the nylon out by hand to the desired length.
Note that you are only cutting with the very tip of the nylon string, not the full length.
Deborah there should be a little hole just towards the bottom of the spool head where you could fit a small metal rod in. If you can locate it push something small in like a 2 inch nail and turn the spool head slowly by hand until it locks up. The head should then undo . It will undo anti clockwise.
The 125LD had a T25 bump feed trimmer head, depress with finger and thumb the tabs either side of the head, the base will then pull away with the white centre spool, take a lenght of 2mm cord, bend in the middle so as you have two equal lengths, hook the bent end into the cut a way in the spool and wind both lengths in the same direction as indicated on the spool, once you have enough cord on the spool secure the ends in the slots on the outer edge of the spool to stop it all un raviling, place the spool back into the spool housing, carefully place the cord through the metal eyelets, push the assembly back into the upper housing clicking it back into position.
There should be a knob that goes on AFTER the string spool that holds it on. IF the issue is it keeps turning when you try to put it back on, then on a machine with no clutch, the engine will need to be locked up. To do this, remove the spark plug and wire, pull on the start cord until you see (with a light) the piston go DOWN in the cylinder...then insert a length of soft, clean rope into the cylinder and this will lock it up when it tries to turn again.Parts on end of the machine are:
1. Bump Knob 2. String Spool 3. Spool Spring and finally 4. String Head Housing
take off knob that holds on the spool on bottom of weedwacker, remove spool, there are notches around the outside splines on the bottom of the spool. (the bottom is the end that fits up into the spool housing. there are 2 little holes opposite one another on the spool - one on each section. Cut two lengths of line about 6 feet long. stick line into first hole (near bottom of unit) wrap line around spool. once wrapped line gets short - to the point where you cant wrap it anymore - stick the end into one of the notches - do the same with the other line - insert spool back into housing - make sure spring is attached to the spool and lines come out of the holes in the housing - reinsert knob and tighten - make sure as you are doing this you unseat the ends of the lines off of the notches on the spool and they are out through the housing - tighten knob and you should be good to go
