I do not know of any other source. I think the part your looking for has also been discontinued.

SOURCE: 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.

I have a trimmer that is 1 year old and the line will not feed.I have followed the instructions to the letter but it will not work.I hope you can help me.Thank you.


In my limited experience all but the very cheapest strimmers have a bump feed line head fitted. These aren't foolproof but I find them less bother and less difficult than the manual feed type.

The main consideration seems to be reassembly after winding the new line onto the spool. Most spools have helpful arrows for the winding direction but sometimes the spool will fit on the spindle either way and the position of the spring isn't always obvious. I have one and the spool is marked this side top. The obvious thing is not the right thing as they assume the machine is upside-down.

Once assembled a bump-feed line head should move against the spring with a firm hand pressure freeing the spool so the direction of travel feeds out more line. The correct line diameter is important. If the head will not move up to free the spool it is assembled wrongly or an accumulation of grass, weeds and nettles has fouled the operation and it should be cleaned and maybe lubricated a little.

Hello, i have a B&D GL545 type2 strimmer and it looks like i think looking at exploded drawing its the actuator, a little white plastic bit that slots into the top of the spool in the groove. so my...


yes, there should be a spring, it maybe cheaper and less of a headache to just buy a replacement head, if not at any home improvement stores they sell parts for mowers/trimmers. Good Luck Tim

String on weed wacker does not automatically advance.


the notice on the trimmer says it has an AFS Automatic Feed Spool, "NO BUMPING REQUIRED". I see that underneath the spool, there's a small plastic centrifugal weightwith a peg on it. . It kinda looks like it might advance the line each time the electric motor starts and stops. If there are loose clippings in there, or if the weight is stuck, it probably would cause the problem.

Millermatic 140 w/ auto set powers on but will not feed wire or arc


If its a new unit its probably nothing. Miller makes good stuff. Open the side so you can see the spool. With the machine on, press the trigger for a second. Did the little wheel spin (trying to feed the wire) if it did then your problem could be kinked wire, **** on tip, or spring on small spool is loose and wire is slipping. Let me know.

Auto feed will not work


I think your problem is the little plastic ( white ) lever ( part# 598435-00 ) on the inside of the housing that holds the spool. Mine was working fine and then it just stopped feeding line altogether. I would order a couple (3-4) so you have them in stock. Looks like a part that will wear out fast. I wish they still sold a bump type weed eater. Hope that helps.

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