SOURCE: can not remove spool to replace string

If it's like my Ryobi, the alignment arrows are for feeding in string, not removing the spool. When aligned with the arrows, you should be able to insert two pieces of line into opposite sides of the housing. The ends of the line will come out of the spool next to a tiny hole. Put the end of each of the two lines into the holes, then pull the two lines from the outside. This will lock the ends of the line into the tiny holes in the housing. Now you can turn the housing by hand to wind the lines onto the spool. I think it will take about ten feet of line (on each side).

Alternatively, spin the bump stop out of the assembly. This holds the spool in, so when the bump stop is removed, the spool comes right out.

I hope this helps.

SOURCE: the string in the spool of the weed eater is stuck

Sounds like one of the loops is over the one being fed out. Does that make sense? I hope so. If one of the windings of string is over another, it makes it hard to unwind. Maybe if you were to put on a glove and really pull on the string, it would start to unwind. Other than that, pull the head and check the string. Good luck...Lee

Once you remove the spool cap and the spool, you cannot remove the head from the motor. It is not a replacement part.

Hi I have an ECHO SRM 225 trimmer. I received no manual when I bought it. I do not know how to spool a new string


Usually string trimmers come with line already in it. If there is no line in it take the head apart. how you do this is as you push down on the bump as you hold the bottom part of head and twist the head should come apart..to sting the trimmer some are different some you have to cut the string and wrap two strings two different ways some you use one long piece and you wrap it.... you will noticed on the head there will be little indicators that tell you which way to wrap the string.. if you have any questions please let me know..

Cutting string is stuck inside head


The head will have to be pulled off by taking the nut off of the bottom and then take the spool off and resting the spool. If the string is new it may be the wrong size string.

Trying to get the spool off. The plastic rig around the nut is gone nut is stripped. I am trying to disassemble from the motor thinking the cable is broken but still can't get it apart. Stihl fs 45


Maybe you can lock up the motor and just remove the whole string head as a complete assembly...Try taking the spark plug out of the engine...turn the engine over till the piston is near bottom of the cylinder, then insert a length of clean pull rope or curtain cord or even nylon rope into cylinder..then when your turn the spool or string head the engine piston will come up and compress the material inside...effectively locking up the motor to allow removal of the spool.

How do you get the spool off of a gas (31cc) ryobi weed wacker? The string is stuck up in the spool and I can't get it out.


The knob on the bottom unscrews, and the spool comes apart once you get that off.

My homelite trimmer string keeps getting stuck and when i tap it to release more string it doesn't the spring in it doesn't spring at all. I constantly have to stop take it apart pull enough string to edge...


It's sticking pretty good. Try what I do: Pull the head off and clean it out pretty good. Also clean where the spool attaches to the trimmer. Before you reassemble it, give it a shot of powdered graphite (I get mine at the hardware store. It's for locks). Reassemble the spool onto the trimmer. Bump it on the ground several times to distribute the graphite within the head. Now, press the head in and pull on the trimmer line. It should dispense a little line and stop, just like when the machine is in operation. If it works, you're done! If it doesn't work, you will need to replace the spool. They are available at the major hardware stores. Even if you have to replace the spool, the graphite trick is a good one. It'll keep the head dispensing line smoothly. I add the graphite probably every 7th or 8th time I rewind the spool.
Best regards, --W/D--

I need directions to replace string on black and decker cordless 18v grasshog


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.
7. go cut grass.

Require Manual for Ryobi PTL 2543 25cc line trimmer


Or sometimes you unscrew a retaining bolt set into a plastic "lug", the spool drops out, refill t with line, replace it putting line through holes in the spool casing, refit the "lug" and tighten it again. I think I have the manual for this though and if so maybe I can send you a link to images on MSN Homepage to help you..
