Depending on the reel it could come apart differently. On a closed face reel you normally turn the top half about 1/4in. and then the top pulls off. On a open faced reel if you look atop the cylinder that the line wraps around there should be a screw on there. Or sometimes the whole top of the cylinder unscrews.

I have the 1276sli abumatic spincast reel. The issue is when am reeling the line in there is bump in the handle always at bottom as i crank the line in under load.


Hey michael,
Sometime when you add line to a spincast reel, where you tie the knot and wind line onto the reel, it makes a bump in the spool, this "bump" in the spool sometimes hits inside the reel everytime it makes a rotation....

How to take reel apart to reload line


Hi Karen:
If this is a fishing reel, pull off the old line into a plastic bag or wind it on to an old spool so it can be safely discarded. Tie the new line on to the reel, and wind the new line on.
There used to be a closed face spinning reel that you would unscrew the face cover to access the spool.

If this is a weed eater, grass whip, some of the older units had a threaded centre with a left hand thread. Once unscrewed, the spool lifted off and you could wind on the new cutting cord.

Happy fishing, or gardening.

Why is my reel able to reel both directions instead of locking in place?


Sounds like the slider switch didn't get back into it's socket properly, take it back apart and look at that.

The level wind guide moves when reeling in but does not move when the line is running out what is wrong


There may not be anything wrong.
some levelwindays reels disengage the line guide during casting or when releasing line.

Wont coil back into its housing, so trimmer wont start. Has compression though


Hi, this a cut&paste from elswhere but it applies to your problem:
how to repair a recoil spring: whats missing is this, you should always wgear eye protection when dealing with springs of any kind.
remember safty first. :)

Remove the recoil shroud and take a look at the assembly.
You might have a broken spring or just a rope that has slipped out of the reel.
The spring usually breaks at one of the end tabs. If so, you will need to get a replacement spring and carefully wind that in, before re-assembling the rope reel. You might wish to replace the rope also, if it shows signs
of wear.

You will need to remove the entire cooling shroud. There should be 4 bolts on the sides. You might need to remove the fuel tank also. Pre-wind the recoil reel by hand [about 6 turns, to set the spring tension] and clamp it with Vise-Grip pliers. Remove the old rope. Thread
the new rope through the shroud housing eyelet and to the reel hub. Let the reel re-wind itself until it is full. If there is not enough spring tension you can wind it a couple of turns more by slipping the rope around
between the reel and shroud. Re-clamp the reel. Cut the rope to length and thread it though the handle. At all knots, burn and melt the rope with a
lighter to prevent untying. Re-assemble.
