From time to time, the line will stick, for the lack of a better word, due to the way it is wound on the spool. You may need to pull the spool off enough to get it out of it's bind, if you can't operate the advance and tug on the line with the spool installed. One thing that I do occasionally is apply graphite to the very inside of the spool, where it connects to the weed eater. It seems to advance better.
Hope this helps, --W/D--

Gh700 grasshog trimmer - round plastic gear drive broke in half - can I get a replacement or even a metal gear?


Same problem; GH700 with a stripped gear, inside the casing.
I wish places with replacement parts sell uncommonly broken pieces... I didn't have an account for commenting a request in that site.
If someone asked them, it could be available in a matter of time.

I have a nearly-new 14"


These machines, unfortunately, are now considered disposable consumer items by the industry. One should expect a couple of years of good service from them and that is about it. Your problem is of course, the drive belt. Black and Decker does not list a replacement belt in the parts available for your model.

This big lawn tool parts company does not list internal parts either; only external. Sorry.

My grass hog xp starts but the spool won't spin


This unit is supposedly the same as the GH700 drive system. There is a 5:1 plastic reduction gear inside the housing driven by a steel gear from the motor. It easily strips, melts, or simply breaks. The part is difficult to find. I have not found one yet for my situation.

The auto feed on the grasshogs don't work


Replace the line with a star-shaped .065" line (I use Rino-Tuff from Home Depot online). I have the GH700 (2 line) model and it fixed the problem for me. Other people have fixed the problem with different shaped lines - apparently there is one at Walmart that works well on electric trimmers. Just don't use the smooth round line. I tried the manual advice and it was bunk.

I have bleck and decker grass hog auto feed and it does not work


There is a smalll white part below the spool called a "lever". This is likely in need of replacement. Call Black and Decker at 800-544-6986 with your Model No, and Date Code (stamped on the trimmer itself near where the extension cord plugs in). If it is still under warranty they will send you the replacement part - if not, I loooked it up and it's less than $3 for the part itself.
