Why is the string twisting around the shaft?

On any mower, it is perfectly normal for string, wire, long, pithy weeds, etc. to wrap around the shaft (spindle) of the mower. Sometimes this gets so bad that it triggers the PTO clutch to stop the blades from turning. Accordingly, it is important to check every so often and, with a box-cutter or some cutting tool to free the blades from these obstructions. There's nothing unusual happening here. Just consider it necessary maintenance.

Most dryers are tension idler pulley directed but must first go around the grooved pulley on the motor shaft. make sure the idler goes on the smooth side of the belt and the grooved side of the belt is in the grooves on the motor shaft.

Flymo electric power trim..dual auto feed line keeps getting wound around the drive shaft...bloody annoying any suggestions.. Ian (M)

Most trimmers have a cutter on the shield by the spool. This cuts excess line off to prevent it from wrapping around the shaft. If the shield has been removed or the cutter is dull it will allow extra line to wrap around the shaft.

The knobs on my Euro-pro TO240L have split. Where can I get replacement knobs? When I try it sends me to Shark.

To fix split knobs...

Stuff needed:

Good thin super glue.
a few inches of solid wire (around 18 gauge). 3 or so garbage bag ties together to make them stronger may work.
heavy quilting thread (if you can break it by hand its too weak)

Wrap the wire 1 turn around the knob stem at the edge and twist the ends together. Snug it just enough to hold it in place. Have the pliers ready and apply some glue into the cracks. Using the pliers, twist the wire ends until the cracks close.

Starting at the back of the stem wrap the thread tightly around the stem up to the wire and back. Remove the wire and finish wrapping the thread back to the edge. Apply glue to the thread so it soaks in and allow to dry a bit.

Cut the end of the thread at the shaft, add more glue if needed and allow it to set for a few hours. Sand the thread lightly with an emery board or nail file if needed.

The belt normally wraps around the bottom of the metal platter. Put the platter back on the turntable, and you'll see holes on opposite sides of the patter. Just pinch the belt out a little, and wrap around the motor shaft - should be a brass shaft assembly.
