Question about Garden

Ryobi cs26 The string head is not turning. The shaft is turning upto the connection to the lower portion- where the curve in the shaft starts. After disconnecting the curved shaft and spinning the square pin by hand the string head does not turn. It seems there is a break between the square pin and the string head. Fixable?

Mike it sounds like the head has sheared where it goes onto the shaft. You may be able to get the head off and see if there is any way of re attaching the shaft but it may be tricky. You could use the modelling clay that is also a resin that sets rock hard. (milliput) works for me.

SOURCE: the trimmer head will not spin under power

The drive shaft is not set all the way into position. You will have to take the front casing off, as well as the lower part of the shaft, and work it into position that way. You may have to play with it a little bit.

SOURCE: Weedeater starts fine but the string head will not

The shaft cable has either come loose at the head, or is broken at the engine most likely. Is this a 2 piece unit? If so, see if the cable turns with the grass trimmer section removed. If so, it is usually easiest to just replace the trimmer shaft section. One piece units require disassembly at the engine, and if you are not mechanically inclined, that can be a pain.

The lower shaft on my ryobi stoped turning, how do i fix this problem.


You didn't quite give me enough info on which machine you have ... but if it is one that allows the lower half of the shaft to be removed for using other implements, disconnect the shaft and try to turn the inner splined shaft by hand and see if the head turns, if not you may have a broken shaft cable or a frozen bearing in the shaft head...this will necessitate removal of the head and replacement of either the shaft cable or the machine head...if all is working then check the shaft going to the clutch...hope this helps... ;-D

just cheap equipment. Mark it up to experience and do not purchase equipment fro home center or box stores ever again.

This is just one of the many problems of dealing with

the box stores rather than a full service qualified dealer. If you can

find one in your area, patronize them. Not just when the box store

lets you down but for everything. These type dealers are

disappearing and are not being replaced and soon they will all be

gone.

How do u remove the bump feed spool from the bump feed string head on my ryobi gas trimmer


Grasp the outer portion of the cutting head in your left hand and turn the inner knob with your right. Depending on model, some bump knobs are threaded and some are post and notch. Use a little spray like wd40 to loosen the mechanism. It may take a firm hand, but the two will separate so that you can reload the line. Consider reloading with the .095 five sided line. It cuts much easier than the round line.

Ryobi CS30 straight shaft. I can not get the string head off to replace the line.


There should be a half sphere shaped object over the spool of string. Twist off in a counter clockwise motion and the spool will come off so that you can replace the line.

The motor want turn the attachments i.e. string on the trimmer or blade on the edger


there is definitely a problem in the drive shaft. check to make sure there's nothing blocking the mal and female ends. if there is, clean it out and lubricate it so that the male will attach to the female slot. also check to see that both ends are not stripped. if the motor portion of it is stripped, which most liekly is out culprit, then it needs to be replaced, or you need to get a new trimmer. if you do, i recommend the Ryobi model CS26 gas trimmer.if the atachment shaft is stripped, the the attachment needs replacement. if you replace the motor portion you need not lubricate the attatchment slot. if the attachment is stripped, it needs to be replaced, but im quite sure the female end in the motor shaft is our problem. it could also be broken inside the shaft. make sure nothing falls out if you hold the attatching ends to the ground.
