SOURCE: 18v cordless string trimmer will not stop feeding line

Some of the trimmers recommend a certain size line, if you have one of these that let line out as needed, the speed at which the trimmer cuts will let out line as needed. If you have too small of line the drag for the friction let-out you will spoll all the line out. Make sure the line is the right size, They come in alot of sizes, anywhere from .060" to .125" line thickness so make sure you have the right size line!

SOURCE: Line gets tangled in gear under feed spool

Problem solved. We noticed something was broken off a small part inside the spool holder. My husband took it to the local hardware store, and one of the employees gave him the part from a trimmer that had been returned.

SOURCE: one side feeds to much string the and it

You have wound that string in the wrong direction. Both sections of string should be wound in the same direction. If you need further assistance, just let me know.

How do you get the string to come out of the spool whilst the snipper is in use ?


There are two or more types,
1: provided the spool is full and wound on correctly, to increase the length of nylon you tap the head of the snipper on the ground while it's spinning. This should release extra cutting string.
2: others are simply feed by the centrifugal force governed by a spring in the head. When you wrap the nylon string around the spool, then feed the nylon out the holes provided, the weight of the nylon string pulls the required amount of nylon out so you can continue to work.
Others are manual, simply pull the nylon out by hand to the desired length.
Note that you are only cutting with the very tip of the nylon string, not the full length.

Trimmer wrapped around shaft


Deborah there should be a little hole just towards the bottom of the spool head where you could fit a small metal rod in. If you can locate it push something small in like a 2 inch nail and turn the spool head slowly by hand until it locks up. The head should then undo . It will undo anti clockwise.

Whick way do I fit the plastic thread into the holes on the top of the spool, is there a certain way


Assuming you are talking about a weed *******/grass trimmer, look for an arrow on the spool indicating which direction you should wind the thread. If there is no arrow or it has worn off, turn on the trimmer to see which direction the spool spins. Wind the thread in the direction the spool spins. If it spins clockwise, insert the thread into the hole in the center and begin to wrap the thread around the spool in a clockwise direction, avoiding any major overlaps.

I have a Ryobi spinning reel SX4N,in excellent shape. Ineed to know how the springs go onthe bail to makr it work. Thanks


With the new line threaded through all of the fishing rod's eyelets, open the bail. You open the bail by pulling it over across the spool, until it locks in an open position. Tie the line in a knot around the reel's spool, and loosely wrap the line around the spool at least 7 to 8 times, then pull slowly on the line, to tighten the line that is wrapped around the spool.
Holding the box or spool of fishing line between your feet, so that it will remain close to you, start reeling in your casting rod. When you start reeling it in, the bail automatically closes, and makes the line wrap onto the spool properly. Reel the new line in until the spool is about 75% full, or to the lines marked inside the reel's spool. Cut the new line about 8 feet from the outer-most eyelet of your fishing rod.
Hope this solution has been helpful?

There is a tiny hole where you must put the string through in the spool. Then hold it there with your finger and start wrapping the way it shows on the top of the spool.

Broken pull cord on my manual start Troy-bilt Pony tiller - is this an easy do-it-yourself project?


It's definitely do-it-yourself in that no special tools or skills are required, but it can be a little tricky. You can see that the the recoil starter is in an assembly which is spot welded onto a metal cover. You have to remove the entire metal cover that includes the recoil starter. There may be 6 to 10 screws to remove to do that. When you get it off you will see a plastic spool that holds the cord. This spool is probably held in place by a couple of metal tabs that are bent down. Bend those tabs up with pliers. Underneath the spool is a spiral spring that provides the recoil. Take careful note of how this all goes together. Buy a new cord (available by the foot at a hardware store) and wrap it around the plastic spool. Use a piece of tape to hold the end of the new cord above the spool so you can thread it through the hole in the metal housing later. Put the spring and the spool in place, then wind the spool to put tension on the spring - about 5 turns in the direction that would push the string out through the hole. Once you have the spring "wound up" remove the tape and thread the end of the cord through the hole. Now bend those metal tabs back down. Put the handle on the cord end (or tie a knot) to keep the spring from pulling the end of the cord back through the hole. Reassemble the rest and you are in business.

Rethreading a garden strimmer


Hi Deborah,
You need to start from the beginning of the trimmer string. Remove the entire spool. Insert the start of the line through and wedge it into the little groove to keep it from coming loose. Now wind the line tightly and neatly in the direction shown on the spool. (it should provide an arrow stating to "wind this way". As you near the end of the line, keep it snug and push the end through the hole where it leads out to the cutting zone. As you re-insert the spool into the housing, make sure it stays tightly wound as you lock it into place. This should help. Usually when your string is too short, you tap the **** of the spool on the ground to advance the line. It should feed a bit at a time, and when you hear it getting cut off, you should stop advancing the line.
Hope this helps.

Go to home depot. look at the floor model and the replacement spools they sell there. Reverse engineer the stringing process or but a pre-loaded spool.
Otherwise,
1. Squeeze the tabs on the side of the head of the unit to remove the spool cover.
2. remove spool.
3. place end of string in small hole in center ring of spool.
4. wide spool with string in the direction of the arrows printed on the spool. DO NOT OVERLOAD!.
5. snap string into notch on spool and cut string leaving 6" exposed.
6. thread 6" of string through hole in side of unit head, replace spool, and replace cover.

Thread constantly wraps around spool pin


Cut a round curcle of fabric the size of the spool from a piece of felt. Put a hole in the middle and put it under the spool of thread. If this does not work you can purchase a small net that fits over the spool. It is designed to keep the thread from coming off the spool except for being pulled through naturally.
Hope this works.
