After much mucking around I noticed a hole in the top shroud of the shaft. I placed a narrow screw driver through the hole until it made contact with the rotating part of the head and pushed until the head would not turn. I thern applied pressure clockwise until the head became loose. I did the reverse to tighten. The head of the unit will rotate anti clockwise to tighten as the shaft rotates clockwise during operation. I hope this explains the method.
Thank you any way for your interest.

My whipper snipper got so hot on the shaft that it melted the new plastic cord holder so I was told the drive shaft cable needed greasing can you tell me how to do this and with what grease


quite likely the head you put on is too heavy for your unit . not sure where you are but any auto parts store should sell grease that will work OK look for one that is a HI temp lube tho .

I have a stihl 2 stroke petrol whipper snipper. It seems to have over heated at the reel end. I have smoke and grease spewing out at that end (metal neck at the reel end) have I fried it?


Sounds like you have a straight shaft trimmer version that have got bad bearing(s) that needs replacing. It probably will take the whole gearbox as a replacement item.

Whipper snipper revs but head doesn't turn


Englebert the most common thing would be that the inner shaft has sheared off. Remove the head and see if it spins then.

Whipper Snipper


check to see that you have a left hand nut on the head as it requires it to tighten up as the shaft spins. Check to see if the shaft spindle turns the right way for your new head

SRM 2000a echo whipper snipper Not starting tried new spark plug and fuel.


Small engines have three systems. 1-ignition 2-compression 3-fuel
if you have spark at the plug and fuel gets to the engine the issue is in the engine compression system. I recommend pulling off the muffler and looking for scratches or scoring.
If you need to replace parts find a dealer like www.arcolawn.com to assist.
