Check to ensure that the string is the correct size as specified in the owners manual. If ok check age of the string. If old it has a tendancy to be brittle. If new and supple try letting the trimmer get up to full speed and let the tip of the string do the cutting. Avoid taking on too much at once with this trimmer as the electric and battery trimmers are not as powerful as their gas counterparts. I hope this helps.

Why does the string keep breaking on a task force electric weed eater


Hello, When the string gets old it dries out and becomes brittle. I soak my trimmer string in water until I am ready to use it. The string actually absorbs some water and stays flexible. Try it.

STRING KEEPS BREAKING ON A TROY BILT WEED EATER TB539E


Take a look at the hole in the spool where the business end of the string comes through. There should be a smooth metal grommet or smooth short tube there. If the metal is missing, then the string is breaking because it rubs against plastic and heats up very quickly. Or the tube or grommet might have a rough or sharp spot. You might be able to polish it up with a Dremmel type of tool.

GL 320 String trimmer - nylon string keeps breaking


It sounds like the sting is wound backwards. Try winding a short piece in the opposite direction. If it is backwards, it will be gone in a hurry.

I have a Black and Decker Grass Hog trimmer and I can't get it


There is only a couple of reasons that I can think of that would cause this

1. The string is wound the wrong direction; it should be wound clockwise on the spool. (This is my bet.)

2. Or maybe, the string is too small for your particular trimmer, but this is very doubtful.
