Question about Garden
My line trimmer is supposed to advance the line when the spool is tapped on the ground. It won't advance and I have to stop and feed more string by hand. This is not a cartridge and the line must be replaced manually when exhausted. I purchased the line from my dealer so I'm pretty certain it's the correct diameter.

Some of the trimmers recommend a certain size line, if you have one of these that let line out as needed, the speed at which the trimmer cuts will let out line as needed. If you have too small of line the drag for the friction let-out you will spoll all the line out. Make sure the line is the right size, They come in alot of sizes, anywhere from .060" to .125" line thickness so make sure you have the right size line!

Cut two separate pieces of string, about 7 ft. each.
Stick the end of the line in the hole on the inside of spool.
Wind clockwise onto spool, putting the line that is closest to the ground on first.
Once you have winded this piece on, lock the last 4 inches of line through the slits on spool.
Repeat process for second piece of line, locking the last 4 inches in slot opposite the other locked in piece.
Put the spool on the trimmer, feeding the end of lines through either hole on trimmer.
Before you push the spool all the way on, pull the strings out of the locked position. Put cap on and GO CRAZY!

Hold orange spool containing string while twisting the black plastic cap in the center, counterclockwise. This retaining cap is loosely spring loaded, so watch for the spring falling out. Once this locking cap is removed, the spool pulls right off.

Is the string spool seated on the rachet correctly? If so and all is well, it is worth noting that these trimmers auto feed fuunction is problematic at best, requiring manually unwinding some line every few minutes as the unit gets older.
