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).

How do you remove trimmer head from a John Deere model 260G Grass trimmer in order to replace with a Ugly Head


Block the arbor from rotating- should be somewhere you can shove in a small pointy object to lock it.

Then, looking from below, rotate the head CLOCKWISE to remove it. (Left-hand-threaded.)

And ... if all else fails, one can read the instructions. :')

Trimmer starts but hardly rotates when giving it gas.


Check for a tangle of grass or wire just above the string head where it attatches to the shaft. A buildup in that area can interfere with the movement of the head.

Cutting head on 29cc trimmer will not stop rotating at idle,cleaned filter,changed oil, cleaned spark arrester, tried adjusting idle speed, nothing seemed to help


You didn' t list the model number. Have you tried placing the head on the grass? does it stop then? It has a centrifugal clutch, if the idle speed is too fast, it will spin. There could be a broken spring or dirt in the clutch keeping it engaged.

The motor works but strimmer does not rotate


If the head does not turn, but the motor runs freely, then the reduction gear is damaged. It is inside the motor housing. If the motor tries to run but does not rotate, then there is likely material bound up between the moving and non-moving parts.

Line continues to advance and wrap around axle


I used a file to sharpen the line cutter which controls the amount of line. After sharpening the small cutter on the trimmer, the length of the line is now under control and now my trimmer works just fine.
