Question about Black & Decker String Trimmer Cordless 12" 18V
My Black and Decker string trimmer is older, requires an electrical cord. The spool is up near the handle at the top and feeds through it, is exposed along the extension down to the actual trimmer. You feed it in by hand and it usually comes right out the trimmer area underneath. For some reason it is stuck. There is a button near the bottom that says "groom" or "edge" with arrows. I have never used that button but wonder if it is part of the problem. I have re-strung it before, but this time its stuck! I do not want to take it apart (screws etc) unless absolutely necessary. Any thoughts?

Is the string spool seated on the rachet correctly? If so and all is well, it is worth noting that these trimmers auto feed fuunction is problematic at best, requiring manually unwinding some line every few minutes as the unit gets older.

I had the same problem, there is another screw hidden under the black sticker. If you feel around, there is a soft spot. That's it.
