Black & Decker GH600 Trimmer spool will not feed automatically

I have had my trimmer for several years now and this is the first time that it will not automatically feed the line. I use the pre-wound spools recommended for this model. Can it be fixed or do I need to buy a new trimmer?

It sounds like that the automatic line release is damaged.

1. Remove and clean all debris from the head. I assume that you have already done this if you have changed the line a few times, but just make sure.

2. Remove the the head from the shaft.

3. There should be a large spring in there. If its broken, damaged or missing that will allow the head to spool line pretty fast. again make sure all debris is removed from this area.

4. Check the feed dogs in the same area as the spring. If they are worn the same problem will occur.

5. Install line on the spool.Make sure that it is wound the proper direction. There should be arrows indicating this. The line wound in reverse will also cause the same problem as well.

6. Put it all back together and see if works now.

7. If this doesn't solve it you may need to replace the head assembly.

Good luck!

String will not feed for BD grasshop Gh600 type 2


Have a problem with your B&D GH600 trimmer? Replace part LEVER, Item #29, Part #598435-00 for about $3.00 (B&D or Dewalt). Just pull old level straight out with pliers (ends expand to hold it in place) and push replacement in. No other parts.

String won't advance automatically. Thank you so much for any assistance! It's a Black & Decker ST 7000 edger/trimmer.


There is a rachet mechanism at the bottom of the spool. make sure the spool is seated fully. Also make sure the string isn't wound too tight or it will stick and not advance.

Auto feed spool doesn't work


You may need to purchase a new spool housing, which may not be too hard to do, if you have one of the name brand trimmers. This replaces the whole mechanism that holds the line, the retaining ring, etc.

Please check your line diameter. If you are using stronger line than specified in the manual, it could be the root cause.
