Question about Black & Decker String Trimmer Cordless 12" 18V

1 Answer

String Runs Out

Spool seems to run out each time I use it--after about 30 minutes of trimming. I don't keep the trigger pressed or anything like that--just go to a strech of grass, press the rigger and trim, then move on to the next section.

You are most likely keep bumping the head on the ground, causing the string to unwind. Hold weedtrimmer off the ground.

ensure the spool is not ended if so replace with new spool of string. also check the retaining screw in the middle is not too tight. undo it one click at a time to alow the spool to unwind when the motor runs


always disconnect your strimmer from the power when doing this also wear protective footware and long trousers, when using such tools.

String does not seem to feed automatically frequently have to take the spool out to re thread through the lottle holes


These things can be very sensitive with how the sting is coiled on the spool. Take your time and try to get it perfect. Look at the pre strung replacement spools for an example. also inspect the lever, usually under where the spool sits. Make sure its not to dirty and moves freely. After that when you want it to feed quickly pull and release the trigger a couple times. If you dont want it to feed the when you pull the trigger be sure to maintain how far you have it pulled back, then release it a little slower than usual. Lastly wait a few seconds before pulling again. If this doesnt work the lever may be worn out and defective. But they are super cheap and easy to replace.

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.

This may sound like a dumb question, but did you mix the fuel and put it in the machine? If so, you shouldn't have. 4 strokes don't take mixed fuel. You must put the SAE 30 Oil (Not 2 cycle Oil) in a different chamber. Let me know, PLEASE!

Homelite string gas trimmer Model ut20811A: 1. Will start with full choke and run with full choke for a while but will not maintain speed when choke is released. 2. String feed will not feed when taped....


If it only runs with choke on, then mixture is too lean or idle set to low.
Adjust mixture initially at 1.5 turns, then move in or out as needed for highest idle when warm.
Make sure no leaks or clogged filter when adjusting.

Hard to say with string feed, but are you sure you are not putting the spool in backwards?

How to undo and change the cutting line


You need to start from the beginning of the trimmer string. Remove the entire spool. Insert the start of the line through and wedge it into the little groove to keep it from coming loose. Now wind the line tightly and neatly in the direction shown on the spool. (it should provide an arrow stating to "wind this way". As you near the end of the line, keep it snug and push the end through the hole where it leads out to the cutting zone. As you re-insert the spool into the housing, make sure it stays tightly wound as you lock it into place. This should help. Usually when your string is too short, you tap the **** (bottom) of the spool on the ground to advance the line. It should feed a bit at a time, and when you hear it getting cut off, you should stop advancing the line.
Hope this helps.

Need info on putting line on troy bilt 4-cycle string trimmer. Need to know how to get spool off trimmer to replace trimming string on the spool.


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.

Are you using the proper size line? Check the ends of the spool. It will give you the size you need. Also while you are checking, locate the arrow that shows the direction to wind the line. Hope this is of some help...Lee
