Question about Black & Decker 14" Grass Hog Xp Trimmer/Edger

1 Answer

The shaft stopped turning

The shaft under the spool stopped turning. I had just changed the old spool and possibly put my finger somewhere. The product was given to me by neighbor and no manual. Motor still races like crazy but just doesn't seem to rotate the shaft that turns the string spool.

My spool thread keeps breaking everything else works well, i also cannot get the bulb out


Spool thread breaking:
Make sure you are using a brand new needle.
ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot when threading.
Verify the thread pathway is correct.
Make sure there is no "thread slit" or snag on the spool that is catching the thread (if so, turn the spool over on the spindle so the slit is at the top).
Check that the bobbin is loaded and threaded correctly in the bobbin case.
Use only good quality thread--NO old thread from grandma's sewing basket or bargain bin variety. Use the same thread top & bottom.
Set the upper tension to midway between the high & low numbers.

Retest your stitch on medium weight woven cotton fabric. Begin to stitch slowly.

If the upper thread is still breaking, there could be a burr or nick somewhere that is catching the spool thread. You can test by wrapping your finger with very fine fabric, like an old pair of nylon hosiery and run it around inside the machine and along the thread path to see if it hangs up anywhere. If it is a minor snag, sometimes you can smooth it with a fine emery board or sand paper. If it is large, you may need to replace the part.

If it is still breaking, you probably need to have it serviced.

For the bulb, you may need to use rubber fingers or something similar to help get a grip. If it is a bayonet bulb, you may need to push up and twist simultaneously. Others usually just unscrew. There are some that must be replaced by a technician (check your owner's manual).

Kenmore mini ultra The top thread breaks off from needle after a few stitches. The bobbin seems to Be catching the top thread. Thank you. ??


If the top thread sews a few inches and then breaks, something is catching the top thread and holding it until it breaks. Usually, this will happen when using the old style thread cones with the slit in the edge to keep the thread from raveling off the spool. To prevent the thread from hanging up, turn the thread spool over so the slit is at the top instead of the bottom. Sometimes top thread breaks will happen if the thread becomes looped around the thread spool pin.

Remove the thread, ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot and then rethread the upper thread. Verify that the thread path is correct and that the thread has not looped around a guide.

If the thread is fraying at the needle eye, the needle/thread are not compatible. Also, the tension may be too high.

Check that the upper tension disk is clean--no gunk buildup or thread pieces stuck.

If the thread is actually breaking when it penetrates the needle plate hole, there may be a burr or nick somewhere below that is catching the upper thread. You can wrap your finger with a piece of fine fabric, like an old pair of hosier, fine knit fabric, etc. and running your finger around in the bobbin area, under the needle plate. If you get snags, then you have a burr or nick. If it is small, you can sometimes smooth it with a fine emery board. If it is a large burr, you may need to purchase a replacement part.

How do you change ink on a canon p20-dh calculator


For accounting offices and stores, calculators that produce a printed paper are indispensable. Canon's desktop or commercial printing calculators use ribbon tape, and you'll need to change the ribbon when it is used up. All Canon desktop and commercial printing calculators use the same method for changing the ribbon.
  • Turn off the calculator.
  • Pull up on the tab on the far side of the printer cover to remove the cover.
  • Pinch together the ribbon lock (the arrow shows you the direction to pinch). Lift the ribbon spools off the shafts and discard them.
  • Separate the new ribbon spools. Guide the ribbon tape around the four guiding pegs and set the spools on the shafts. The spools should be peg side down.
  • Rotate the spools so the peg at the bottom of the spool goes into the hole of the spool holder. Release the ribbon locks.
  • Rotate the spools to make the ribbon taut, keeping the ribbon positioned around the guide pegs.
  • Replace the printer cover and turn the calculator on.

Why does the spool keep coming off?


did you change the Spool assembly from the original? The Straight shaft trimmers turn counterclockwise and the curved shaft trimmers turn clockwise. If you put a Straight shaft spool on a curved shaft machine, it will unscrew itself. and Vise verse.

I have a minolta autodual 8 film projector but the front reel is turning backwards in the wrong direction. How do I change the direction to turn in the same direction as the back reel.


I assume you haven't put a reel of film onto the projector and looped it through to the back spool. The front spool usually 'freewheels' whilst the film is pulled through the projector and taken up by the motor driven rear spool.
It is possible that the friction drive and/or drive belt have deteriorated with age, as the mentioned projector is a rather elderly 'classic' of the dual 8mm series.
If in doubt, don't risk your family pictures. Try the unit with an old piece of film on small spools.

I just bought a BD Grass Hog and after 1 h of use,


If the noise was up by the handle it may have been the drive pulley breaking loose of the shaft on the motor causing the motor to spin and stop the flex shaft of the trimmer. Another possibility would be the small belt that aids the flex shaft. If those don't fix the problem check the lock nut that bolts the flex shaft to the spool housing. If the shaft broke free from the housing the motor would still run and the shaft would turn, but the spool housing would not spin if it does it could be stopped very easily. Definately check the warranty.

Pull string for Weed Eater Featherlite Plus came out


If you have the starter spool out (the one the rope goes in)...Here is what to do. Take the starter spool and change the rope out putting it back exactly as it was. Leave the rope hanging. Hold the spool and set it down on the rewind spring. Turn the spool on the rewind spring until you feel it is tight enough. While turning, hold the rope in the little slot in the spool so it can go around without hanging up. Once it is tight, get the rope in line with the spool opening and SLOWLY let the rope rewind. Put on the handle and put the unit back together.Good luck...Lee

I need to know how to thread a bobbin?


TRY THIS, itma not be your model, but should help Title:
How do I wind the bobbin? windingbobbin_02.jpg
ac093.jpg Pre-tension disk ac094.jpg Bobbin winder shaft ac095.jpg Bobbin

1. Pull up the spool pin as far as possible, and then put a spool of thread on this pin. windingbobbin_a0991.jpg
2. Pass the thread around the pre-tension disk. Make sure that the thread passes under the pre- tension disk.
windingbobbin_a0992.jpg ac098.jpg Pre-tension disk c_b4.jpg Pulling it in as far as possible

Caution If the spool of thread is not in the right place, the thread may tangle on the spool pin.

3. Pass the end of the thread through the hole on the bobbin from the inside of the bobbin. windingbobbin_a0993.jpg
4. Put the bobbin onto the bobbin winder shaft and slide the bobbin winder shaft to the right. windingbobbin_a0994.jpg
5. Turn the bobbin clockwise, by hand, until the spring on the shaft slides into the groove of the bobbin. windingbobbin_a0995.jpg ac099.jpg Spring on the shaft ac0991.jpg Groove of the bobbin

6. Turn on the sewing machine. windingbobbin_a0996.jpg
7. While holding the end of the thread, gently press the foot controller or press start/ stop button (for models equipped with the start/stop button) to wind the thread around the bobbin a few times. Then stop the machine. windingbobbin_a0997.jpg
Note
  • If the sewing machine is to be operated using the foot controller, connect the foot controller before turning on the machine.
  • When the foot controller is plugged in, the start/stop button cannot be used to start sewing (only for models equipped with the start/stop button).

8. Trim the excess thread above the bobbin. windingbobbin_a0998.jpg
Caution Make sure you follow the instructions carefully.
If you do not cut the thread completely, and the bobbin is wound, when the thread runs low it may tangle around the bobbin and cause the needle to break.

9. Slide the sewing speed controller to the right (to set the speed to fast).
(For models equipped with the sewing speed controller.) windingbobbin_a0999.jpg ac0992.jpg Sewing speed controller
10. Press the foot controller or press start/stop button (for models equipped with the start/stop button) to start. windingbobbin_a18.jpg
11. When the bobbin seems full and begins spinning slowly, take your foot off the foot controller or press start/stop button (for models equipped with the start/stop button). windingbobbin_a19.jpg
12. Cut the thread, slide the bobbin winder shaft to the left and remove the bobbin. windingbobbin_a191.jpg
13. Slide the sewing speed controller back to its original position (for models equipped with the sewing speed controller). windingbobbin_a192.jpg


Caution Not winding the bobbin properly may cause the thread tension to loosen, and may break the needle.
woundbobbin3.jpg ac0993.jpg Wound evenly ac0994.jpg Wound poorly


Note
  • When the sewing machine is started or the handwheel is turned after winding the thread around the bobbin, the machine will make a clicking sound; this is not a malfunction.
  • The needle bar does not move when you slide the bobbin winding shaft to the right.

I'm trying to thread a ribbon through my old underwood 11 typewriter. Does anyone know the steps to doing this?


First, type a few letters to find out which direction the spools wind the ribbon (either to the inside or outside). Make sure the spools are installed to wind the ribbon in the correct direction. Second, make sure there is some ribbon wound in the empty spool so the eyelette on the ribbon for automatic reverse does not cause a jam by getting on the carriage side of the reverse guide. Take one spool in each hand, and let just enough slack in the ribbon to insert it behind the ribbon guide next to the platen. Note: the ribbon must go behind the two middle fingers of the guide and in front of the two outward fingers of the guide. If the guide has downward hooks on the outward guides, make sure the ribbon goes under the hooks to prevent the ribbon from bouncing out of the guide during typing. Next, make sure the ribbon passes through the metal guide fingers in front of the ribbon spool holders (these are for the automatic reverse - make sure the metal eyelettes in the ribbon stay on the spool side of the fingers or you will not get a reverse, and the ribbon will jam). Place the spools on the spindles of the spool holders. If the spool is hard to mount, check to see if there is a slot in the ribbon spool to align with a lever or mechanism on the spool holder of spindle. Hope this helps.
