On bottom of trmmer head it should have a knob or two taps that push in. Look on spooler there is an arrow that tells you which way to spool string.

It is a fairly simple head, push the two ears in either side of the head, the black base will then come off, check the cord inside has not become trapped, check the blue button depresses ok, re assemble, run the machine at full revs and bump it down on the grass.

While trimmed is in use, how do I release more trimmer line?


Bumping the string head lightly on the ground will release more trimmer line if the line was loaded properly and spooled in the correct direction. If the line was loaded wrong, doing this procedure won't help. Make sure your line was loaded correctly. Do this bump as the engine is slowing down or running slow. Most all gas trimmers work this way, but some of the electric ones have automatic line feed and no bumping is necessary.

Line doesn,t feed automaticly


Hi there,

The line may be on backwards or has developed a knot. Debris may have worked its way inside the bump head preventing it from functioning.

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.

I would take off the head and have the spring replaced that keeps the button down when using.

Echo trimmer with bump feed is not feeding


Sadly, they do wear out..... but sometimes they're just stuck. The line can refuse to feed if the line is caught on itself in the spool winding, or if the head is bad. Try this: remove the spool and clean it pretty good. Check that the line isn't caught on itself in the spool. Sometimes it just locks itself in between wraps, and you have to pull it out of the groove to get it to continue to feed. Give the inside of the spool a liberal dose of graphite powder. Put the spool back on with line. Bump it against the ground as much as you feel necessary to further distribute the graphite. Now, push the spool in as if to feed line, and pull on the line. It should feed a bit and stop. If it does, you're good to go. If not, replace the spool.
Best regards. Hope this was helpful to you, --W/D-- Please feel free to rate this solution! Thanx!

Homelite curved shaft timmer line problem


So, is this trimmer suppose to feed the string automatically? If not, then it sounds like the string is wound up on the spool the wrong direction.
