Question about Homelite Mighty Lite Lawn Trimmer
I have Homelite UT-20002-A. The cutting head wont rotate. Took it apart and where the flexible wire shaft plugs into engine looks fine. The flexible shaft rotates, but is somehow disconnected at the trimming head. I cant figure out how to access the bottom of the metal shaft. Can I re-attach the flexible shaft down there or is it fused at the factory? Cant tell at Homelite website. Thank you
The only way to access the bottom of the metal shaft is to break it. This is fused on at the factory. It sounds like your flexshaft has twisted in two. Remove the flex shaft from the engine end and see if it is in one whole piece or is damaged in someway. If it rotates at the top but doesn't rotate at the string head this is probably the problem. However, Homelite no longer offers just the flex shaft for purchase. You would probably have to purchase the shaft and the tube as a unit.
But if you are saying the spool and string is not turning at the bottom it could be that the cup which holds the string has worn and can not longer be turned by the shaft. Replace the cup that holds the string.
Another possibility is that the shaft have moved forward, away from the engine and just need to be jammed back in, and retightened (the handle grip and the boom clamp).
