Just line up the two arrows across from each other to those on the the spool housing on the bottom of the spool. Then grip the bump knob and pull straight out. It takes a good grip and some force, but it usually gives way.

How can I fix my weedeater when the line does not advance when I bump the head

There is a small gear mechanism under the spool which is usually plastic. If it get damaged the line will either not release or release too much. Unfortunately I cannot find a picture to include.

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:

Watch the video in this link:
it should help you.

I found the manual here:

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


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


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,

I have an 1100 TORO Weedeater with the "push tabs" to remove the spool. Thru use/mis-use, the "tabs" are all the way in and the spool will not release. There is still line on the reel...

All I know to help you would be parts replacement as plastic parts are wear items and have to be replaced. Here is a parts w/diagrams breakdown of the 1981 model year Toro 1100 trimmer. I hope this can be of help. You can order parts here to replace your "worn out" string head and spool.

Can't get weedeater spool head loose to change the line.

there is three types of heads push, screw, and snap. The screw type have a big ball looking thing on the bottom that when pressed lets the line out. the snap kind are verry distinctive they slid in and two tongs snap in to place you will be able to see them on the out side. the push head just push in and turn.
