This is not a threading problem.
don't hit anything that is harder than the line you are using, like tree trunk, cement curb,etc.... the trim line is thin, if you want to, you can change the line to a thicker one. that should last little longer.
also, you can take out the line sizer (cutter) from the trimmer cover.

Replace line


Two possibilities:

1. Buy a new spool. Make sure you bring your make and model/size to the store to get the correct replacement spool, or

2. Buy new line and manually wind it into the existing spool. Smaller lawn trimmers and edgers use smaller diameter line than larger lawn trimmers and edgers.

Good luck.

I cannot get the head off it to change the line, I am fixing to solve the problem with a trash can if you can't help.


I do not know what you have, but have you considered the posibility that it may be reverse threaded or left hand threaded to stay on tight during operation. So you would need to turn it to the right to loosen.

Putting on another spool, do I thread the line through the hole in the side?


I feel that the END of your trimmer line should exit THROUGH the hole in the side. That hole should have a small metal grommet to alleviate wear on the plastic head unit as the string flies.
So string your line onto the spool and when you are done, run the END of the line through the hole in the side.

I need to feed the line back into the holes on the craftsman 17' 25cc weed trimmer. I dont know how to remove the line holder to replace


Although it is called dual line, only one line is used - except that you use both ends of the line. Cut off as much line as you think the spool will hold. Put the two ends together to find the center of the line. Some trimmers have holes to thread the lines through and others have a place to hook the bend at the middle of the line. if yours has threading holes, thread one end of the line through each hole and then pull on both ends until the bend of the center of the line won't allow any more slack. If your trimmer has the place to hook the bend, hook there and start winding the lines in the direction shown on the spool. Be sure one line is on one half of the spool and the other line on the other half. Wind both lines at the same time as smoothly as you can. When the spool is full, insert the loose ends through the trimmer head, insert the spool and pull on the strings. Hope this helps Tim

Rethreading a garden strimmer


Hi Deborah,
You need to start from the beginning of the trimmer string. Remove the entire spool. Insert the start of the line through and wedge it into the little groove to keep it from coming loose. Now wind the line tightly and neatly in the direction shown on the spool. (it should provide an arrow stating to "wind this way". As you near the end of the line, keep it snug and push the end through the hole where it leads out to the cutting zone. As you re-insert the spool into the housing, make sure it stays tightly wound as you lock it into place. This should help. Usually when your string is too short, you tap the **** of the spool on the ground to advance the line. It should feed a bit at a time, and when you hear it getting cut off, you should stop advancing the line.
Hope this helps.

How to feed line into a black and decker trimer/edger model st6000 electric?


The ST6000 uses centrifugal force. Once you mount the new spool of string and thread it out of the feeder and into the housing below, plug it in, give it power and hold the line feed button down, feeding the line. Within seconds, the line will feed out through the head and you'll be in business.

Don't know how to rethread the line


Breaking off is a normal process. Set the centre of your line in the spool and wind the two strands in to the Spool, thread and re assemble. C
