    I took the shaft off, removed the cable, and put it back together. The the head will still not spin freely. I cranked the engine and worked with it until I got it to spin again but it still doesn't spin freely. The tech at a local shop suggested that bearings at the head end of the shaft may have seized. I order a new shaft kit ($35). Thanks for the reply.

The drive shaft is not seated into position properly or the shaft has broken. Have you had the shaft off recently? If so, take the shaft off again and try to seat the shaft as you gently pull on the rope. If you need further assistance, just let me know.

Used 323l husqvarna weed eater. Head stopped spinning. How do I fix it?

you need to find what stopped the head. Did debris wrap around the head / shaft and stop it or did the clutch fail. Try to remove the trimmer head and determine if the drive shaft is spinning.

Husqvarna trimmer starts but head doesn't spin, made a high squelling sound but continued to cut, the next time I went to start it the cord pulled quickly then caught started turned briefly then quit while...

Make sure there is not debris stopping the head. Try removing the trimmer head and make sure the shaft turns freely. If it does the problem could be either the engine or clutch.

Husqvarna 128ld trimmer head turns slowly,why

Make sure debris is not wrapped around the cutting head. Remove the cutting head and clear any debris. Then see if the drive shaft spins freely. The problem could be either where the drive shaft mates with the clutch on the powerhead or the clutch is worn.

Check for a spark. If none, then the coil is bad. Replace it. That should solve your problem.
