make sure all the screws are out you might have missed one. if you have them all out then VERY GENTLY pry it off, the gasket is probably just stick, if you still can't get it off go back and search for that last screw you forgot.
try getting on the mfg web site and look at the break down. to see what it shows make sure on doesn't come thu from the other side.

Make sure you are turning the nut to the right to loosen, if you are already doing that but cannot hold the line head still to loosen the nut some feature a hole to insert a screwdriver or pin (supplied with the trimmer) or if yours does not have that: use a nylon strap or even a leather belt to wrap around the head, and then clamp the loose end in a vise or quick clamps and it will hold it in place well enough to loosen the bolt.

ensure the spool is not ended if so replace with new spool of string. also check the retaining screw in the middle is not too tight. undo it one click at a time to alow the spool to unwind when the motor runs
always disconnect your strimmer from the power when doing this also wear protective footware and long trousers, when using such tools.
