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.

Can I bypass the ac on a 95 ford escort? I never use ac and the altinator belt keeps breaking because of the ac thing.


Yes just remove the AC pump and take a roll of string and route the pulleys with the string and take string to auto parts store. They can look up the belt using the belt sliding tool.

When i lock the tuning locks the guitar is out of tune within 3-5 minutes of locking, then when i try to re tune it the strings snap. whats the problem?


I am not familiar with your model of guitar, but I assume it has a tremelo system. Usually when a string breaks at the nut like that, it's because the metal piece that locks the string is not smooth, has a burr on it. It could also be that the lock is holding just well enough that when you bend a string it is slipping some but doesn't go back all the way. Try just totally unlocking it and playing a bit to see what happens. The friction may be wearing on the string where it contacts the lock. I am assuming it is breaking near the nut/lock area, is that right? Or is it breaking at the bridge end?

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.

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.
