If the trimmer works like most trimmers it has a "tap and go" system. This means you just tap the bottom of the trimmer to the grass surface while it is spinning. Then there is a knife that cuts the line to the proper length.

Sometimes this system needs servicing to work as it should i.e you have to take it apart, usually not very complicated.

Good luck!

Corded elec mower wont start. Extension cord is new


Is there power going to the extension cord? If so, is the power reaching the electric motor? If not check the on/off switch and connections.

My strimmer releases nylon cord involuntarily. This is without tapping it on the ground.


Hi Peter:
Check to see if the spring under the "bump" mechanism is missing, or not extending adequately. You could try stretching the spring a bit to see if that would help.

How to change the spool in the black and decker grasshog


Is this the cordless Grass Hog? Turn the trimmer upside down so you're looking at the bottom. There are two orange tabs on either side of the spool -- push these in and the head should pop up so you can pull it out.

On the new spool, feed the cord out several inches and stick it through the hole in the trimmer where the old cord stuck out. Then pop the spool into the cavity so that the orange cover faces out (toward you). Pull the cord taut and make sure it is not long enough to hit the plastic guard. If it is too long and it touches the guard, pull the spool off and wind the cord in a little bit. If the cord is too short, pull the spool off and thread out a little bit more length and try again.

Turn the trimmer right side up and turn it on to make sure it works. If you hear a loud rapid thumping sound that sounds sort of like a machine gun, the cord is too long and is hitting the plastic guard.

Black and Decker corded drill won't tighten around a bit.


the chuck sounds like it is bad or maybe stuck from rust, what you can try and do is spray some WD-40 on the jaws and then try and holding the collar with a glove and run the drill SLOWLY in forward/reverse and see if it loosens up if not you will need a new one.

Have a black and decker 19in electric mower. was


The "wedge" of the plastic lever wears, so you need to replace the lever or build up that section of the lever. Some cyanoacrylate (Super Glue / Krazy Glue) and a piece of a zip tie will work.
