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.

Echo SRM 200 series trimmer is great. I noticed though this summer once I reel in the new string, a short time of trimming later, only 1 side of the string appears. When I open up the reel, the string is...


For your machine, make sure you are using the Manufacturer's recommended trimmer line. For your model, they recommend using Echo brand .080" Cross Fire diameter line. You also need to insure that when you load the spool with the line, that it is loaded (in the right direction) so it can feed properly.

I cannot get more line out of my toro 15" electric trimmer. It cannot be empty, it has only been used once. The cutting line will not extend out any more. Should it not?


Sometimes the line can become fused together.remove the spindle and manually pull the line. Replace and the tap and feed should work fine.

Replacing the dual-line on the 15" Electric trimmer - Do you run the line through the slot on the casing before the outlet hole?


The slots on the string spool are there just to hold the line in place so it doesn't unwind while you are putting the string head back together. You have the strings sticking up, you lower the casing with the eyelet holes down, feed the ends of the strings sticking up through the eyes and then yank them free of the slots so they can automatically feed. So yes, line goes from spool hub to spool slots to casing outlet holes and don't forget to pull it free of the slots.

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 remove the line feed to replace with new. Is is scred on or does it have a lock washer


It should be screwed on. There should be a half sphere-like object on the bottom of the spool where the line goes. Twist counter clock-wise to remove.

If it is a duel line trimmer 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.

If it is a single line trimmer: Then just wind a single piece of string clockwise onto spool. This may need to be longer than 7ft.

Bump n go feeder not working in petrol line trimmer every time the line gets shorter, bumping the base no longer releases more line and i have to undo the screw and physically feed more through.


It sounds like the string is not spooled correctly. Try re-spooling the string, ensuring the string will be able to freely move when the feeder is bumped.

Either that or you may be almost out of string and need to get more and re-spool.

You are pulling the trigger to make it spin while bumping, right? The bump-n-go action is based on centrifugal force.

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.

Automatic line feed melts together -will not feed- second trimmer to do this


The talcum powder fix that I gave for line feed problems works for this problem too. The powder lubricates the line, eliminating the friction that melts the line. They are essentially just two parts of the same problem.
