Question about Worx 10" 18v 2 In 1 Grass Trimmer/In Line Edger

1 Answer

Line continues to advance and wrap around axle

Recently, my Worx grass trimmer is not operating. The line continues to advance and gets wrapped around the rotating axle and becomes tangled. I've tried to re-wind the line but nothing seems to work. The unit will not work in its current condition. Can you help?

I used a file to sharpen the line cutter which controls the amount of line. After sharpening the small cutter on the trimmer, the length of the line is now under control and now my trimmer works just fine.

I used it yesterday and today it will not start. Battery is full charge. Button key is in place.


I would first take a meter and test that the battery actually charged. If that tests out fine ( should read at about 12.8 to 13.5 Vdc), I would then check all the wired connections to make sure they did not come loose.

Most trimmers have a cutter on the shield by the spool. This cuts excess line off to prevent it from wrapping around the shaft. If the shield has been removed or the cutter is dull it will allow extra line to wrap around the shaft.

WEEDS ARE WRAPPING AROUND THE MOTOR SHAFT ABOVE THE TRIMMER LINE DISPENSER CAUSING THE MOTOR TO SHUT DOWN AFTER 30 SECONDS OF RUN TIME DUE TO INCREASED FRICTION ON THE SHAFT


Hi,
That is a common problem with many trimmers... not much you can do about it...except be more carefull and go slower so the weeds fall down before getting caught by the line and getting twisted around the shaft...

The moter starts and the line wraps around the head before I can start trim.


Did you wind the string backwards? Check the head it should show which way the string shold be wound.

Grasshog trimmer line wont stop coming out and it won't break off


Rewind your string in the opposite direction than it is wound now.
If it is wound in the wrong direction it will cause the line to continue to feed out.
Good Luck, I hope this helped
