Question about Black & Decker String Trimmer Cordless 12" 18V
The autofeed feature on my B&D 18V cordless grasshog works a bit too well: the line feeds out constantly, whether it needs to or not. I've looked at all of the places on the unit I can get to easily and nothing looks broken. The white lever under the cord spool is okay.
SOURCE: My grasshog gh600 wont feed
check out a white plastic lever at the back of the spool line. if its broken then replace it. cost of the parts around $4.00 or so. this parts controls the auto feed of the spool

Some of the trimmers recommend a certain size line, if you have one of these that let line out as needed, the speed at which the trimmer cuts will let out line as needed. If you have too small of line the drag for the friction let-out you will spoll all the line out. Make sure the line is the right size, They come in alot of sizes, anywhere from .060" to .125" line thickness so make sure you have the right size line!

Problem solved. We noticed something was broken off a small part inside the spool holder. My husband took it to the local hardware store, and one of the employees gave him the part from a trimmer that had been returned.

Go to home depot. look at the floor model and the replacement spools they sell there. Reverse engineer the stringing process or but a pre-loaded spool.
1. Squeeze the tabs on the side of the head of the unit to remove the spool cover.
2. remove spool.
3. place end of string in small hole in center ring of spool.
4. wide spool with string in the direction of the arrows printed on the spool. DO NOT OVERLOAD!.
5. snap string into notch on spool and cut string leaving 6" exposed.
6. thread 6" of string through hole in side of unit head, replace spool, and replace cover.
7. go cut grass.
