SOURCE: ENGINE WILL NOT ENGAGE WITH SPINNING SPOOL

I had the same problem, The pully is plastic and is mostlikely melted. I took mine apart when it finally stopped working and found that the belt had broken as well. When taking it apart, there is a hidden screw under the black sticker label. Just feel for the soft spot. Also, there are screws under the black plastic embelishments.

Hello, W/D here.

Read all the way through this, with the spool in your hand, before you re-wind the spools. It will make much more sense!

Pull the spool off of the trimmer.
Look on the bottom of the spool. The decimal numbers next to the notches on the edge is your line size (e g. .080). If there are 4 notches, there will be different decimal numbers, indicating that your trimmer can take different line sizes.
Also on the bottom will be arrows, indicating the direction that you will need to wind the line.
Looking at the spool, you'll notice that it is actually 2 spools, and the divider between them has a slot in it. (This will be important in a minute). The section of the spool closest to the bump head is the outer spool, and the spool closest to the machine, with the flat side, is the inner spool.
Insert the proper sized line into the hole in the inner spool core about 1/8", and wind in the direction indicated by the arrows, until the line is just about even with the divider between the two spools, then place the line in the notch that is 180 degrees (on the other side of the spool) from the slot in the divider. When the line is in the notch securely, leave about a 6" tail beyond that, and snip the line.
Wind the outer spool in the same manner, but this time, the line will go into the slot in the divider, then into the notch, and also get a 6" tail.
Feed the tails into the grommets in the trimmer head, square them up, notches to grommets, and snap the spool in.
Push the spool in like you were bumping it to the ground (this frees up the advance for the spool).
Grab the two tails, and give a tug. The line will pull out of the notches and advance about 1".
It's a good idea to clean out the hole where tha spool fits onto the trimmer from time to time, and also to put some graphite dust in the hole every 8-10 times you re-wind the spools, just to keep the mechanism working freely.

Best regards, --W/D--

Gh700 grasshog trimmer - round plastic gear drive broke in half - can I get a replacement or even a metal gear?


Same problem; GH700 with a stripped gear, inside the casing.
I wish places with replacement parts sell uncommonly broken pieces... I didn't have an account for commenting a request in that site.
If someone asked them, it could be available in a matter of time.

Same thing happened to me. The belt broke. You'll need to take off all the screws to change the belt. There's a hidden screw under the black label. Feel around for the soft spot.

Black & Decker gh1000 trimmer head not spinning


The same thing happened to me. You either have a ruined belt pulley, or, hopefully, the belt burned out. Belts are easy to find online, but the housing is tricky to remove - see other posts.

I finally got it the plastic housing apart on my trimmer (there is one screw hidden under the label), only to find a total meltdown. The plastic pulley is ruined, and the only way to get it replaced is to buy a new motor (the most expensive part).

If your trimmer is no longer under warranty, then you can get a refurbished gh1000 for the price a new motor unit.
