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.

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
