There are a couple of different heads that doesn't have a spool on 1 you pull the left over pieces of old string out from under the and the push the new short pieces into the front of the head, another you line up two arrows and then put a long piece of string throw the head eqail on both sides and then wind the head to pull the string in, another you take off and feed the line down inside.
If it only runs with choke on, then mixture is too lean or idle set to low. Adjust mixture initially at 1.5 turns, then move in or out as needed for highest idle when warm. Make sure no leaks or clogged filter when adjusting.
Hard to say with string feed, but are you sure you are not putting the spool in backwards?
The notches are there to hold the line in place while you place the spool back on the trimmer. If you look at the spool, you will find, on one end or the other, an arrow showing direction to wind the string. Follow the direction and when you get the spool full, place it into the notch. Leave about 6" sticking out and cut it off. If you have a two string spool, just wind the other string as you have done the first. When you have both spools full and the ends in the notches, place the spool on the trimmer. As you start the spool on, place the string (or strings) in the respective holes. As you seat the spool pull the string that is the farthest in until it comes out of the notch. Do the same with the other string. Seat the spool and try your handiwork. Good luck...Lee
