If it's like my Ryobi, the alignment arrows are for feeding in string, not removing the spool. When aligned with the arrows, you should be able to insert two pieces of line into opposite sides of the housing. The ends of the line will come out of the spool next to a tiny hole. Put the end of each of the two lines into the holes, then pull the two lines from the outside. This will lock the ends of the line into the tiny holes in the housing. Now you can turn the housing by hand to wind the lines onto the spool. I think it will take about ten feet of line (on each side).

Alternatively, spin the bump stop out of the assembly. This holds the spool in, so when the bump stop is removed, the spool comes right out.

I hope this helps.

Ryobi 26cc gas trimmer. Can't replace line. Used 1 8'' line thru slots in spool. (3'' each side). Don't understand next step. Push down spool and twist? Should spool stay level...


You line up the head with "arrows" by turning the plastic bump knob on extreme bottom. When arrows line up with the head then you insert your line through the slots "OR" you insert the line in one side and it comes out the other side. Then you have to push pressure DOWN ******* the bump head while twisting the bump head clockwise to "pull in" the string until there's only about six inches left remaining on the "shortest" piece hanging out the side. use scissors to make the lines equal in size before staring the trimmer. Hope this helps.

Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly (almost old at 56)
I looked up your parts and have come to the conclusion that you have items 13, 14 and 15 of this link:
http://www.ereplacementparts.com/images/poulan/RT112_.pdf

Watch the video in this link:
http://www.ehow.com/video_4426520_learn-spool-weed-eater.html
it should help you.

I found the manual here:
http://lawnandgarden.manualsonline.com/manuals/mfg/weed_eater/rt110_rt112.html

SEE PAGE 7 of the above manual. Includes pictures. Try pressing in and rotating the spool to remove it.

1. Disconnect the unit from the power

source.

2. Remove the spool by firmly pulling on the

tap button.

3. Clean entire surface of hub and spool.

4. Replace with a pre-wound spool or cut a

length of 30 feet of 0.065! (1.65 mm) diameter

Weed Eaterr brand line. Use of

heavier lines could overload and damage

unit.

WARNING: Never use wire, rope,

string, etc., which can break off and become a

dangerous missile.

5. Insert one end of the line about 1/2 inch (1

cm) into the small hole inside the spool.

6. Wind the line evenly and tightly onto the

spool. Wind in the direction of the arrow

found on the spool.

7. Push the line into the notch, leaving 3 to 5

inches (7 -- 12 cm) unwound.

8. Insert the line into the exit hole in the hub

as shown in the illustration.

9. Align the notch with the line exit hole.

10. Push the spool into the hub until it snaps
into place.

11. Pull on the line extending outside the hub

to release it from the notch; otherwise, the
unit will not function properly.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

I need to know how to restring my Twist & Edge RTE weedeater. I've looked everywhere & can't find an answer that makes sense. PLEASE Help.


I found this solution on the net. I hope it helps.

Unscrew cap and remove. Remove line guide ring. Note which way to put line guide ring back on, slot to outer edge. Remove the empty spool.

Don't take spool apart unless you need to get inside to remove string. The outer half should be yellow. Cut 25 ft. of .065 line. Start pushing the line inside the spool from the center making sure the string is winding inside in a counter clock direction which should be shown on the spool. Keep pushing until there is about only 6 in. left.

Replace spool. Then the line guide ring, making sure to pull the string through the middle of it. Then hold the string on the slot in the ring while replacing the cap.

How do I load string in a P2500 string trimmer??


Remove spool by firmly pulling on tap button. Cut two pieces of line (0.080) about 12 feet. Insert the two ends of the line into the small holes inside the spool. Wind the lines evenly and tightly on the spool. Wind the string in the direction of the arrows on the spool. Push the lines into the notches on the spool leaving three or five inches hanging there. Insert the two ends in the two holes in the hub. Align the notches on the spool with the holes in the hub and push it in until it snaps into place. Pull on the lines to release them from the notches.

Put string on tb425cs troy bilt trimmer


there are two ways to install the string..the cool way is without pulling the inner reel off the trimmer..just leave it in place..cut (2) approx.two arms length (thats spreading your arms out like airplane wings) of .095 string..now, align the arrow of the inner reel (it turns counter clock-wise..the arrow points outward) with the arrow on the outer spool (pointing inward)..holding the spool and reel together so the inner reel doesnt move, push one of the cut strings through the eyehole in the side of the outer spool, and it should come up to the right, through a slot next to a small round hole the diameter of the string..if it doesnt, it just missed the exit (as i call it)..pull out and try again..let about an inch come thru..now take that end of the string and push the line into the little round hole until it stops, which should be about a little more than 1/8 of an inch..hold it in while pulling the excess line outside the spool to keep it in place..now do the same with the other string for the other side..once you have both lines in place, turn the inner reel counter clock-wise to draw in both lines through the eyeholes of the outer spool..you may or may not get all of the line to wind in..not a problem..you will still have enough to do what you need to do..just cut off the rest..one problem you may or may not have that i do most of the tyme is that it gets hard to turn the inner reel..one solution is to bump the top of the 'bump knob' with your fist, then pull both strings at the same tyme, then continue to turn..this method is quicker and easier than the second way of having the inner reel out and trying to wind both lines at the same tyme and trying to place the reel back in the spool..hope this works for you...

Ryobi ss30 (ry30544) pull string keeps jamming


I am having the same problem. I took it apart and the plastic cap piece for the pull string spool has a crack. This is the plastic piece that turns the engine when pulling. Because of the crack, the absorption spring under the cap slips out of its hole in the cap. This causes the pull string spool to jam after a strong pull that causes the crack to open up. Now I need to find a replacement part. Any ideas?
