hello sir, i'm guessing the rope is broken , first you'll need a c-clamp large enough to clamp the spooler, needle-nose pliers,a small tipped screwdriver and a new length of rope.the safest way is to remove the rewind assembly cover leaving the spooler in place in its housing. try to remove the old rope with neddle nose pliers ans small tipped screwdriver.next hand spin the spooler to achieve spring tension until stops back off enough to line holes up, place c-clamp to hold it in place,now try to fish the new rope into the hole in the knot recess,trying to guide it to the exit hole in the cover, ( it's easier to feed the rope if you singe the end of the rope with a bic lighter and form to a point )and with a small knot at the other end,pull the rope all the way until you can seat the knot into the knot recess.next tie a loop knot into the other end of the rope,so the end wont be recoiled all the way into the housing.with tesion on the rope gently remove the c-clamp and let the rope be drawed in.if it draws all the way to the loop knot, check to see if the spooler is full if so,( not too full where rope is binding ) pull the rope about a foot and re clamp the spooler and install the pull handle, if rope is too long you may have to cut to length. if it doesn't draw all the way to the loop knot and the spooler is not full than you may need to add anoyher revolution to the spring tension in the same fashion as described above.there are eisier ways but that evolves removal of the spooler and repacking the reciol spring.( not for the novice ). hope this helps,MrFixIt,thank you. gtui

SOURCE: ryobi 990r trimmer
alot of trimmers now have limiter caps on the carbruetors to keep the homeowner from making adjustments due to epa regulations and the ethanol fuel is 10% is not good either
So unless you have access to or a way to remove the caps for adjustments its a hard fix
you could remove the carb. and take apart to make sure the rubber pieces are still pliable.
the fuel will harden them over time and the carb will not deliver fuel to engine properly.
check you fuel lines to make sure they are not cracked or broken

Its a pain in the ****,even for someone that does it for a living,my advice is take it somewhere to have it done. Im not being a ****,Im just telling you there is a lot that can go wrong doing it yourself on a trimmer.
