Homelite weedeater not spinning

My weedeater no longer spins. The gas motor runs fine but the shaft at the bottom does not turn. It has been working fine. Is there a gear or something in there that I can replace myself or would I have to take it in to a shop?

There is a cable that runs thru to the shaft take it apart at the shaft bottom and see if it is broken or unattached.

Testimonial: "What is the best way to get it apart? I have a Weedeater brand weedeater also that has a bad motor. Could I rob parts off of that and put the cable or whatever on my Homelite? Thanks for the help!"

    Look on there handle. There should be a connector which allows you to take it apart. The shaft is a piece of flexible cable.

It could be a clutch that fails to engage.

I put seafoam in my weedeater with on mixture of gas and oil and it runs better why


It can get its air easier. When using too thick an oil in the filter, sometimes the carby cant breathe properly and it will cause the motor to stall.

Weedeater and Homelite shafts interchangeable?


Just give it a try. Some different brands will interchange. I have done this with a Toro and it is still running.

No power when wheel spins


You may have a broken drive shaft. Some are braided and flexable and used on curved shaft units. The solid shaft is used on most straight shaft units. Remove the string head and pull the shaft out to look at the ends to see if they are broken or stripped. George

02 Suzuki ozark 250- rear wheels don't turn,tranny


Okay first your other responses are completly illiterate ok if the drive shaft is spinning that means the motors running for all of you other answerers that means gas is going through the carb into the engine and it's working perfectly fine. Now to answer your question if the rear wheels aren't spinning you probably have the same problem I'm having with mine at the moment you've drivien it too hard and the gears on the bottom end of your drive shaft aren't warn but inside the bell housing of your rear end where the drive ahft enters the gears are so worn you can't feel them in that case you would disconnect all of your sub frame conecters and the back shock then your rear end will come away from the four wheeler check the gears I told you about and if they are worn go buy new ones. Problem solved

I have a Homelite Z830SB Brushcutter. I use it with the blade attached rather than the line, for cutting. It starts fine, but it does not engage (i.e. the shaft does not spin...so there is no rotation in...


the inner shaft could have broken, which is the case a lot when using the blade vs the string remove the shaft from the motor, and spin the inner rod and see if the blade turns, if it does check the end of the rod and see if its damaged in anyway , if the blade doesn't spin, the shaft has broken and will need replacement

How do I remove the cutting head on my homelite HLT=15


http://www.ereplacementparts.com/homelite-hlt15-ut20602-string-trimmer-parts-c-18807_20299_21185.html

Here is a diagram of it. It is reverse threaded so you have to turn it like you was tightening it to loosen it. Clockwise looking at it from the bottom of the head. But there is a clutch that will let the whole thing turne. The best way is to remove the shaft from the weedeater and hold the shaft with some vice grips. Or you may be able to hold it right above the head, before the shaft tube.

Weedeater starts fine but the string head will not spin. I removed the string head, and the shaft it connects to is not spinning either.


The shaft cable has either come loose at the head, or is broken at the engine most likely. Is this a 2 piece unit? If so, see if the cable turns with the grass trimmer section removed. If so, it is usually easiest to just replace the trimmer shaft section. One piece units require disassembly at the engine, and if you are not mechanically inclined, that can be a pain.

Craftsman gas weedeater. Engine runs, but the head won't run


Cut 1/8" off outer (aluminum) shaft. Lube inner shaft with STP or heavy gear lube this will re-engage worn square drive .Replacing inner cable is un-necessary this is normal wear. Sears Master Tech BB
