Bump feed doesn't work

I recently found an older B & D STA4000 which runs great. I can't get the bump feed to work. Is there a part that fits under the spool to push it back out so it will feed?

SOURCE: Line gets tangled in gear under feed spool

Problem solved. We noticed something was broken off a small part inside the spool holder. My husband took it to the local hardware store, and one of the employees gave him the part from a trimmer that had been returned.

Lost owners manual, how do I advance the string


Hi don watts46...
Bump the rotating end of the trimmer on the ground while it is running and it will automatically feed the line out, the more you bump the more line feeds out.

Homelite trimmer, gas, string - y is the string wrapping itself around the head of the trimmer?


The line on my new 26cc Homelite would also feed out by itself. That started me thinking the line was wound backwards. I wrapped the line in the opposite direction as was shown on the bump feed reel and now the dang thing works although the bump feed needs to be "bumped" pretty hard to work. Is it possible that the reel was manufactured with the (string direction) arrows pointing the wrong direction? The new 26cc unit is also underpowered compared to my older 25cc trimmer.

Hi, I have opel corsa 1.4. Recently i faced a problem that if if there is at least three person (including driver) then during running a tortling noise comming from the right side of the back whenevr it...


the best way to find out what it is would be to have the 3 people in the car while gently pushing down on the car simulating a pot hole or bump and inspecting how the exhaust & shocks in that area where you hear the noise, are fitting. It sounds as if when the weight of the extra passengers is in the vehicle, probably your exhaust pipe/muffler/tailpipe is now closer than usual to another body part & when you hit bumps or pot holes, the extra force caused makes it bump or rub.

Generaly there should always be 1" of exhaust clearance from other parts. There could also be a problem with the shock/strut when the extra weight is placed on it. The noise should actually point you in the best direction & you should look for shiny spots on metal, pipes or things that appear to be capable of rubbing. Sometimes, the muffler /exhaust will lose one or more of the rubber O-rings it is supported by and that allows it to swing & bump making noise. Good luck.

Cant get the spool off homelite trimmer


Unscrew the bump-knob and the rest pulls off. If it won't unscrew you could always cut it off and buy a new one from ALM Manufacturing 01423 797208
