SOURCE: 18v cordless string trimmer will not stop feeding line

Some of the trimmers recommend a certain size line, if you have one of these that let line out as needed, the speed at which the trimmer cuts will let out line as needed. If you have too small of line the drag for the friction let-out you will spoll all the line out. Make sure the line is the right size, They come in alot of sizes, anywhere from .060" to .125" line thickness so make sure you have the right size line!

SOURCE: Troy Bilt 4-cycle trimmer won't stop!

Take the switch so it is accessable
take the two wires and touch them together or hook them together bypassing the switch
does it shut off or it should not have spark?
if so you have a bad grounding problem if it does not shut off,if it does your switch is still bad
2 wires one tied to ign. module and other to a metal ground all the switch does is dead short. the igniton to shut down the spark and in turn kills the engine.
Be sure your grounding is tight and clean and all wires are intact and making good contact to their designated areas (no broken wires)
hope this helps some for you

SOURCE: motor works fine, but trimmer will not rotate

Have an assistant start and hold the trimmer. At idle, there should still be a little drag on the clutches to make the shaft spin on that split shaft trimmer with the accessory head removed. No need to rev it or do anything fancy, but teamwork will make it safer.

Now forget about the engine and clutches - does the accessory head spin freely when turned by hand (removed from engine still!) and with a clear rotation of the shaft end visible inside the connector socket? Is the shaft end square with sharply defines angles, or rounded off? Does swapping in a different accessory function normally and as expected?

Sometimes the nub end of the shaft wears. Worse, the socket on the engine side has eaten itself to pieces. Worse, worse yet, clutches in the engine side that engage the accessory shaft are worn and there is simply no transmission of power. Good luck, hopefully this info will set your boots in the right direction!

Kia sorrento wipers won't stop

I had the wipers won't shut off, or turned on by themselves on my 2005 Kia Sorento. It about drove me nuts. I came across my solution by pressing every button I could find, eventually finding out what the mystery button to the right of the hazard button on the dash was for. (It's to defrost the front wipers by the way) You can investigate further if you'd like but it's not necessary if this works for you.

I simply pressed the button on, waited a moment and turned it back off. It stopped the wipers. They came back on about three more times over next few days and I repeated the process each time. It's been about three weeks since the last time I did it and I haven't had any more problems. This sound crazy or quirky I know and I don't pretend to understand it, but it's working for me. It beats the heck out of paying over $300 dollars plus labour for a new wiper switch . I priced them. Good luck.

Whilst cutting my hedge, inadvertently, I allowed my trimmer to run out of fuel. I refilled it and when I tried to start it, the engine spluttered then stopped and I have been unable, susequently, to start...

The fuel line probably has become air locked .Keep pressing the primer bulb if the trimmer has one and also repeatedly try to pull start the machine with the choke on. Eventually the air should be flushed from the line.

My homelite trimmer string keeps getting stuck and when i tap it to release more string it doesn't the spring in it doesn't spring at all. I constantly have to stop take it apart pull enough string to edge...

It's sticking pretty good. Try what I do: Pull the head off and clean it out pretty good. Also clean where the spool attaches to the trimmer. Before you reassemble it, give it a shot of powdered graphite (I get mine at the hardware store. It's for locks). Reassemble the spool onto the trimmer. Bump it on the ground several times to distribute the graphite within the head. Now, press the head in and pull on the trimmer line. It should dispense a little line and stop, just like when the machine is in operation. If it works, you're done! If it doesn't work, you will need to replace the spool. They are available at the major hardware stores. Even if you have to replace the spool, the graphite trick is a good one. It'll keep the head dispensing line smoothly. I add the graphite probably every 7th or 8th time I rewind the spool.
Best regards, --W/D--
