Question about Ryobi 40-Volt Lithium-Ion Cordless String Trimmer

Open Question

String will not advance.

How can I fix this probe myself. It says the string should feed itself each time you start but doesn't seem be doing that. I have to manually release the line myself.

SOURCE: ryobi weed trimmer

I have one of this trimmers. It is simple to replace the line. 
-First line up the arrows on the bottom of the spindle. 
-Then feed the line back in one of the holes in the side of the spindle (this is the same hole that the cutting string comes out of). 
-You will see the line come out of the bottom of the spindle. 
-Take that line a place it in the hole on the bottom of the spindle. 
-Leave about 9 feet of string hanging out of the weed eater (do the same with the other side). 
-Then turn the inside wheel (I can't remember if it is clock wise or counter clock-wise but it will only turn one way) most of the string is rolled into the spindle. 
-Cut the string of about 5 inches out of the weed eater. You're ready to cut!

SOURCE: how far does the return gas line on a ryobi string trimmer extend

There is supposed to be a barb fitting with a flange on top of it that is on the end of the hose, inside the tank. If you do not have that barb in place the gas will start to leak out of the tank in a short time. Barb fitting is designed to have hose stick up about 3/16" into the tank when the hose is properly installed. You put the new hose on the fitting, thread the other end of the hose through the fill opening of the tank and out the hole in the bottom. Pull hose through until barb comes through the hole in the tank and the flange is flush with the inside bottom of the tank. There is supposed to be a plastic ring that fits over the bulge in the hose/barb at the bottom of the tank on the outside. Serves as a retainer for the fitting.

SOURCE: Ryobi string trimmer RY34420 has a non retracting

The starter assembly is between the motor and boom so you have to remove the boom from the motor housing. Usually one nut & bolt at the nose of the starter housing. There may be another lock bolt. You shouldn't have to remove the throttle cable and leads but it depends on how tight the factory installed them. Remove the starter housing. If you're real lucky all you have to do is pull some starter rope up past the pulley and wind the pulley in the direction the rope pulls back into the housing. You have to pull the rope around the pulley as you wind it. If the spring catches and builds tension you're good, wind it four or five times or enough to fully pull the rope back in. If the spring doesn't catch or releases every two or three turns it has to be replaced. You may have to replace the spring and container (PN638033001) and/or the easy start assembly (PN310022001).

How to restring drum on Echo 210 gas trimmer


Pull the head off by turning the inner hub counter clockwise while holding the outer head still. Once the inner head pops out, turn it over and look for the string rotation arrow. If you can't find the string winding directional arrow, start the trimmer and determine shaft rotation direction (generally counter clockwise) and wind the string in the same direction as the head rotates when installed.
Pull about 5 arm lengths of string out of a string spool and cut it off. Place the inner trimmer head on an object that will hold it while you pull the string to even lengths through the winding hole (the support brackets of a pickup truck tail gate work well for holding the inner head while doing this).
Begin wrapping the string double wraps in the proper direction, laying them evenly and closely to the previous wrap, working it back and forth as the string begins to build up. Avoid crossing the string over itself more than necessary, the string can weld itself together if the strands cross to awkwardly. Once the string is wound, hold the head with one hand and slide the string through the outer head holes, avoid letting the string come unwrapped.
Carefully place the inner head down into the outer header. Avoid letting the string get caught between the inner and outer head. Once the heads are together lock the inner head onto the outer head by turning it and locking the round knobs into the outer head slots.
You can trim the string or let the trimmer guard do it. If the string doesn't feed it is either wound the wrong way, tangled between the inner/outer head or welded to itself.

How do you advance the string


These little electric machines have an automatic line feeding system. Do not bump the trimmer head on the ground attempting to make line advance. If the line advance is not functioning like it should, then the string head should be removed and the spool inspected for snags and tangles.

Homelite trimmer, gas, string - y is the string wrapping itself around the head of the trimmer?


The line on my new 26cc Homelite would also feed out by itself. That started me thinking the line was wound backwards. I wrapped the line in the opposite direction as was shown on the bump feed reel and now the dang thing works although the bump feed needs to be "bumped" pretty hard to work. Is it possible that the reel was manufactured with the (string direction) arrows pointing the wrong direction? The new 26cc unit is also underpowered compared to my older 25cc trimmer.

Possible Line-Feed Problem


The notches are there to hold the line in place while you place the spool back on the trimmer. If you look at the spool, you will find, on one end or the other, an arrow showing direction to wind the string. Follow the direction and when you get the spool full, place it into the notch. Leave about 6" sticking out and cut it off. If you have a two string spool, just wind the other string as you have done the first. When you have both spools full and the ends in the notches, place the spool on the trimmer. As you start the spool on, place the string (or strings) in the respective holes. As you seat the spool pull the string that is the farthest in until it comes out of the notch. Do the same with the other string. Seat the spool and try your handiwork. Good luck...Lee

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.
