Could be dirt in the motor but its more likely to be the motor burning out. if it works after its cooled but heats up fast you might be able to save it with new brushes in the motor ( you may also see sparks coming from inside if brushes are worn )

Hi Anon, there is a strong possibility that you have burnt the motor out. Before use you said yourself that you should have oiled it. Try and do this now but be CAREFUL and dont be surprised if it doesn't work

The trimmer makes weired noise and a burning smelly

The obvious is that you have something around the head and it is burning or the bearing in the head is stuffed. Go and buy a new head it would be easier to this then replacing the bearing.

You sure the battery is fully charged. A bad battery will run a bit and then stop providing enough power. Then if you wait it will have "rested" and work another tad. Then rest again.
Almost sure that your battery is bogus.

I have a 21c grass trimmer. I'm not getting gas to

Probabbly have a bad fuel line. If theres any holes in the line it will just **** air and cant create suction to pull fuel into it. If its not in the line check the prime ball itself. If there is a hole in it it wont work either.

Should I bring the battery of my Ryobi 18v grass trimmer inside for the winter?

Yes, and charge it up occasionally to keep it alive. Lithium batteries are costly and severe cold is not good for any type of battery.

My Grass Hog trimmer was working fine then all of a sudden it stopped cutting. The string no longer spins around. I just hear a werrrrring sound. I just bought it last summer.

I can tell you what is is, the belt came off inside. Mine is doing the same thing, I took the case off and looked inside, the belt had come off the metal wheel. I put it back on but it keeps coming off. Im thinking theres a piece I must have lost that helps hold it on. Thats what Im looking for now. If you can get the belt back on and to stay on then it will work again.

Line continues to advance and wrap around axle

I used a file to sharpen the line cutter which controls the amount of line. After sharpening the small cutter on the trimmer, the length of the line is now under control and now my trimmer works just fine.
