SOURCE: Homelite strin trimmer head wont rotate

The only way to access the bottom of the metal shaft is to break it. This is fused on at the factory. It sounds like your flexshaft has twisted in two. Remove the flex shaft from the engine end and see if it is in one whole piece or is damaged in someway. If it rotates at the top but doesn't rotate at the string head this is probably the problem. However, Homelite no longer offers just the flex shaft for purchase. You would probably have to purchase the shaft and the tube as a unit.
But if you are saying the spool and string is not turning at the bottom it could be that the cup which holds the string has worn and can not longer be turned by the shaft. Replace the cup that holds the string.
Another possibility is that the shaft have moved forward, away from the engine and just need to be jammed back in, and retightened (the handle grip and the boom clamp).

There is a nut above the head, place a wrench on the nut then unscrew the head from the shaft, unless yours is different from mine this is how it works. I hope this helps.

The gap on my 18 year old Homelite ST-185 is 0.025. Since they are still using simple and reliable magnetos, yours should be the same.

Here is a diagram of it. It is reverse threaded so you have to turn it like you was tightening it to loosen it. Clockwise looking at it from the bottom of the head. But there is a clutch that will let the whole thing turne. The best way is to remove the shaft from the weedeater and hold the shaft with some vice grips. Or you may be able to hold it right above the head, before the shaft tube.

You'll probably need to just purchase a replacement head for your trimmer. You can buy one from PartsBuggy.com here. You'll need part #385-580.

Please note: The replacement parts shown when you click the link for the item # are replacement parts for the head being sold and may not necessarily fit the original Homelite head that may be on your trimmer.

You can order the part from www.homelite.com You will need your model number to help you select the right part. You will need to click on the order parts text in the upper right hand part of the screen. This will take you to another page which will ask you to go to the homelite parts catalog. After you click on the parts catalog link, it will ask you to agree to the terms of use for the website. READ THIS CAREFULLY.
After you have agreed to the terms of use it will take you to another page. From here you can input the model number of your unit. Input the f2020 into the search box and click on search. It will ask you which version of the model you have. On the right side of the screen it will have a parts breakdown. You should select (Shaft-Spool and String- Grass Deflector). This will pop up a diagram with a parts breakdown which will include part numbers to help make ordering the correct part easier. I believe the part that you wish to order is part number 17 of the diagram. When you click on the part number in the diagram it will select it below the diagram and will flash for a second. At this point it has an option to add this part to your shopping cart.
I hope this helps get you back in business.

Once you have the string wound onto the spool, place the spool onto the shaft and pull the strings out of the slots so that the string feeds through the holes without going through the slots. Good luck...Lee

Cannot undo nut on bottom of Strimmer


Make sure you are turning the nut to the right to loosen, if you are already doing that but cannot hold the line head still to loosen the nut some feature a hole to insert a screwdriver or pin (supplied with the trimmer) or if yours does not have that: use a nylon strap or even a leather belt to wrap around the head, and then clamp the loose end in a vise or quick clamps and it will hold it in place well enough to loosen the bolt.

I have a homelite f2020 series petrol trimmer i would like to know the petrol and oil ratio mixture please


I use 50:1 with Sthil 2-stroke oil in ALL my 2-stroke equipment. This ratio does not smoke at all, and does not foul plugs.

Never had a problem yet. At this mix ratio, you can also use it in 4-stroke engines, which means you only need 1 fuel can on site. Also eliminates the possibility of using the wrong can to fill the trimmer.
