Why does the head stop moving?

with trimmers , there is a shaft or as in a bent shaft a cable that has square drives and ends
these can become oval or break off if continual heavy loads are applied to the cutter head
next there is a centrifugal clutch at the top of the shaft and if continually used in heavy work that clutch will wear out and not grip sufficiently to drive the shaft
most cutter heads do not suffer problems other than to get loose and work down the tube thereby allowing the square drives to part

How do you take off the nylonhead off a srm 225 straight shaft trimmer to put on a new one

The nylon head should pop off by clicking on two pins holding it to the main body. Once it pops off you should be able to reload it and push back to those clips again

Not sure what you mean but if you are saying the weedwacker head is not engaging it may be the cable that goes from the motor to the weedwacker head and runs down the inside of the shaft.

How do you change a head on a poulan pro trimmer

Just below the gearbox there is a slot and when you turn the shaft there is a slot on the shaft that lines up with that one. Stick a screwdriver in the slot when they are lined up and then grab the head and turn it clockwise. (the threads are reversed)
