Hold the yellow spinner part with one hand and push the bumper thing on the bottom and turn it counter clockwise to loosen-(we had to use a vise to get it off ours). then remove it-being careful not to lose the spring inside. pull out the string holder and take about 20'(?) of line and find the mid point then thread it thru-wind it up and then feed 1 end out each of the side holes-then put the unit back inside and cover-replace the bumper screw on tight and should be good to go--good luck! try

I can't find a replacement spool TF065 for my ST6000 trimmer/edger. My husband passed away, and there is no spool in the trimmer. Home Depot says there is none. You just wind it on by hand. I have...

Unfortunately, the manufacturer no longer carries the TF065 for the ST6000 trimmer/edger. No substitute is listed. The TF065 is no longer in stock at any of the parts stores that I checked. The Parts List and direct order information is available here: .

You can try other Service Centers in your area to see if they have any spools remaining in stock. Use the Service Center lookup tool here .

I wish that I had better news for you.

Step by Step spool filling on my NEW Black & Decker GH700

Check the bottom of the spool. See the pattern that looks like a circular saw blade. Ensure that the raised edges, do not have any broken/missing sections. Also, check that the pivot lever in the cap, moves freely and engages the space between the same, saw-blade-like edges in the spool correctly. If there are broken/missing sections of the spool, replace the spool with a good one.
