String on Echo (with the 2 strips ) is stuck and cannot get it out on one side? How do I open the head up?


You mean the trimmer line...?
If so. It's run out. Need to rewind new line in.
Press the two tab on the side of the case and then pull the center out to (refill) new line. you should be good to go back in business like before.

Good luck

When I had this problem I replaced that ratchet toggle part that the string drum sits over. Do you use replacement refills or do you refill them yourself. If you wind the string in the wrong direction it all affect the auto feed.

String on weed wacker does not automatically advance.


the notice on the trimmer says it has an AFS Automatic Feed Spool, "NO BUMPING REQUIRED". I see that underneath the spool, there's a small plastic centrifugal weightwith a peg on it. . It kinda looks like it might advance the line each time the electric motor starts and stops. If there are loose clippings in there, or if the weight is stuck, it probably would cause the problem.

How do you refill the string on the homelite electric, straigh shaft, 13 in Trimmer?


Is the sting the cutting line at the bottom of the trimmer? If it is pull the spool out. At the bottom of the spool there is an arrow pointing in the direction that the line should be wound. When you first put in the line be sure to place the cutting line in the grove (V shape) and then when you put enough line around the spool. Thread the end of the line thru the hole on the side of the spool. Slide the spool over the shaft of the trimmer and it will click in. When the line is short just tap the spool lightly on the grass and it will feed out more line.
Good Luck.

String will not feed when bumped


I've never had any luck with those stupid bump heads. Every time I would refill them, the string would get caught up. They bind up. I finally replaced the bump head with a string head that you place short pieces of string in. They're not perfect either. You have to pre-cut the string to about 9-12 inches in length, and just replace the piece when it's time.

It has come apart and I would like to refill the line on my toro heavy duty electric trimmer


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.
