Where can I order a spool housing for a remington electric trimmer/edger model ST3812B?

I actually only need the retaining ring that slides over the spool of line, but I haven't found that anywhere. So the spool housing is the best next bet. Sure would like to use my trimmer this spring.

    This spool housing is for a Desa Remington trimmer edger (Model #ST3812B trimmer/edger. I only need the part, not the whole trimmer/edger.

Please check your line diameter. If you are using stronger line than specified in the manual, it could be the root cause.

SOURCE: how to string a st3812b string trimmer

Wind the string on in a clockwise direction.

If it is a duel line then: Cut two separate pieces of string, about 7 ft. each.

Stick the end of the line in the hole on the inside of spool.

Wind clockwise onto spool, putting the line that is closest to the ground on first.

Once you have winded this piece on, lock the last 4 inches of line through the slits on spool.

Repeat process for second piece of line, locking the last 4 inches in slot opposite the other locked in piece.

Put the spool on the trimmer, feeding the end of lines through either hole on trimmer.

Before you push the spool all the way on, pull the strings out of the locked position.

How to replace the string in grasshog xp electric trimmer

Ran into the same problem recently and discovered that one solution was to use a standard adjustable wrench and grasp the center, leveraging off the spool cover. If you look closely at the spool it is tapered so the very top of the hole in it is actually slightly smaller that the spool cover point it slides over letting it seal pretty tight over time.

Need to replace retainer ring on cord for 8 oz kettle on gay nineties popcorn machine model 2131.

That part won't be found online anywhere. Gold Medal is but their parts available online is slim.

The cord for that kettle has 4 different designs possible, only one has a retaining ring.

A small plastic ring on the plug, usually light grey but maybe black. It was only used for a couple of years in the mid-late 80's. Part #47978 coupling ring, small. Pretty rare part actually, I have them in stock. Contact me at

If you can send a photo of the part you are looking for, (or where it is missing from) it will be easier to get the correct part.

Replace trimmer line

The steps for replacing line in a single line trimmer head are virtually the same for many trimmer head types, like double line trimmer heads.
1. Remove the Trimmer Head Spool
Removing the spool is the first step in replacing trimmer line in any conventional trimmer head, but trimmer head spools can disassemble in different ways.
The trimmer head pictured above and below disassembles by simply unscrewing the knob around its arbor bolt. Other trimmer heads can use press tab and other twisting styles for disassembly.
2. Insert Trimmer Line and Wind the Line
Single line trimmer heads have just one channel in their spools for winding line. The channel will have a hole in it somewhere that keeps the line in place as it is wound around the spool. Insert one end of the trimmer line in the hole.
Depending on the trimmer head, it might be helpful to bend a small portion of the cutting line at an angle before inserting it in the starter hole. Also, cutting the line at an angle can help this first step on some trimmer heads.
Of course, it is also important to make sure that the replacement line matches the diameter specification of the trimmer head before beginning. Once the line is started correctly in the channel hole, you're ready to wind. Most trimmer heads will indicated the correct winding direction right on the spool somewhere.
It's also important to wind the line carefully, keeping it in neat rows as much as possible. The line will have a much higher chance to feed incorrectly during trimmer use if it suffers from sloppy winding.
3. Snap the Line into its Retaining Notch
A conventional trimmer head will have a retainer on its spool. Snap the end of the trimmer line into the retainer after it is wound around the spool. The retainer will hold the line in place as the spool is replaced in the trimmer head assembly.
4. Replace the Trimmer Head Spool
With the cutting line held in place, the spool is ready to be replaced in the trimmer head assembly.
First feed the extra trimmer line through the trimmer head eyelet. Make sure to release the line from the retainer before completely securing the spool into position.
Replace any knobs, bolts, or other trimmer head pieces removed during disassembly.
Your single line trimmer line is now reloaded, and your trimmer should be ready to get back to work.
Although there are many steps to reloading line the conventional way, a little practice and familiarity with your trimmer will speed the process up a great deal. Once you're up to speed, reloading trimmer line this way can take less than five minutes.

Hi there, I just came across your post while looking for my own answers.

If you haven't yet found the answer, try this: Hold the spool immobile and twist the knob counter-clockwise. If your machine is like mine the knob will simply twist off (it is on a threaded shank that goes into the reel cover.)

If you have the model number, the manual is probably available on at

Need step by step inst. to replace fuel pressure reg.

  1. First, you will need to depressurize your fuel system. Remove the Fuel Pump Relay, start the vehicle and run until it shuts off, should only take a few seconds.
  2. The Fuel Pressure Regulator is held in place on the Fuel Rail using a Retaining Ring, or Snap Ring.
  3. You will need to remove the Vacuum Hose connected to the Fuel Pressure Regulator before you remove the retaining ring.
  4. You need a pair of Snap Ring Pliers to remove this retaining ring.
  5. Once the retaining ring is removed, slide the old Fuel Pressure Regulator out, and install the new one. Lubricate the O rings on the new part and the fuel line before assembly.
  6. After reinserting the Snap Ring, ensure that it is snapped in place completely.
  7. Reinstall the Vacuum hose and reconnect your Fuel Pump Relay. Turn the Ignition to On, and check for leaks around the Fuel Pressure Regulator.
  8. If no leaks are found, proceed to start the vehicle.

I need to know how to restring my Twist & Edge RTE weedeater. I've looked everywhere & can't find an answer that makes sense. PLEASE Help.

I found this solution on the net. I hope it helps.

Unscrew cap and remove. Remove line guide ring. Note which way to put line guide ring back on, slot to outer edge. Remove the empty spool.

Don't take spool apart unless you need to get inside to remove string. The outer half should be yellow. Cut 25 ft. of .065 line. Start pushing the line inside the spool from the center making sure the string is winding inside in a counter clock direction which should be shown on the spool. Keep pushing until there is about only 6 in. left.

Replace spool. Then the line guide ring, making sure to pull the string through the middle of it. Then hold the string on the slot in the ring while replacing the cap.

Auto feed spool doesn't work

You may need to purchase a new spool housing, which may not be too hard to do, if you have one of the name brand trimmers. This replaces the whole mechanism that holds the line, the retaining ring, etc.
