Older 12" string trimmer - restring won't feed

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?

SOURCE: B & D auto feed string trimmer won't advance string

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.

How do I change the cord on a type 3 trimmer


You can buuy spools already wound with string or restring the spool you have. When you look at the head you should see two orange buttons, press them and lift the cover off the spool sits inside. Replace with a new one or restrung one running the end out the hole. Replace cover and you are ready to go.

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.
