If it is a duel line trimmer then:

Cut two separate pieces of string, about 7 ft. each.

Stick the end of the line in the hole on the inside of spool.

Wind clockwise onto spool, putting the line that is closest to the ground on first.

Once you have winded this piece on, lock the last 4 inches of line through the slits on spool.

Repeat process for second piece of line, locking the last 4 inches in slot opposite the other locked in piece.

Put the spool on the trimmer, feeding the end of lines through either hole on trimmer.

Before you push the spool all the way on, pull the strings out of the locked position.

If it is a single line trimmer, just wind a single piece of string clockwise onto spool.

Weed wacker started and wacked some weeds then the strings stopped rotating but engine very strong


pull off string housing check that all parts are there. run machine and see if shaft is turning-- if it is then put housing back on sometimes I havent put the housing on properly. if shaft is not turning. then repair is needed. or just buy a new one. cost of repairs on this stuff is not worth the cost. unless it's a profesional grade machine..

The information you want is on pages 13-14. I picked out these general models for Homelite because you haven't listed one.

The string head does not spin as fast as the


it sounds like the centrifugal clutch is slipping. take it to several shops and get some quotes. Most times you'll find that fixing a Ryobi is more expensive than buying a bnew one.

Double spool on Weed Wacker


This isn't a solution to the problem. However, I think you should talk to someone at Home Depot or Lowes or wherever you bought the model, and see if the string is in there correctly; if it is, then u'r weed wacker must have some other mechanical problem. Sometimes it is just best to buy a new one. The more expensive models are the best.
