The head should have arrows showing you witch direction the string is to be wound.

I cannot get the line to feed as it is used up. bumping does no good. the spring is in place. thanks for your help


Did you wind in the new string in the correct direction? The string should be wound in the SAME direction that the head spins.

I was given a used 31cc trimmer but can't get the spool off to replace it. how do i do this?


A typical trimmer has a small bump knob, an inner spool with the plastic string wound on it and the housing for that which is the string head.To remove the small bump knob, hold string head firmly and turn the bump knob counterclockwise. To remove the head entirely, first remove the bump knob. Next, remove the inner spool with string. What should be left is the spring with the end of the gear shaft showing. Some heads are locked on and some just slip over the end of the shaft. Check the gear drive just above the string head for any holes in the collar. An object can be placed in one of the holes to lock the drive and twist the head off.Ryobi's use retaining clips on the shaft which have to be removed.

While trimmed is in use, how do I release more trimmer line?


Bumping the string head lightly on the ground will release more trimmer line if the line was loaded properly and spooled in the correct direction. If the line was loaded wrong, doing this procedure won't help. Make sure your line was loaded correctly. Do this bump as the engine is slowing down or running slow. Most all gas trimmers work this way, but some of the electric ones have automatic line feed and no bumping is necessary.

No directions on how to re-string the spool on my TB-720


On the bump mechanism, line up the two arrows, then unscrew the bump, this will release the spool, then you wind the two strings in the opposite directions, the arrow on the spool will tell you the direction to wind the string, replace spool, spring, bump feed, and you are good to go. I hope this has helped you.

String will not feed when bumped


I've never had any luck with those stupid bump heads. Every time I would refill them, the string would get caught up. They bind up. I finally replaced the bump head with a string head that you place short pieces of string in. They're not perfect either. You have to pre-cut the string to about 9-12 inches in length, and just replace the piece when it's time.

Homelite curved shaft timmer line problem


So, is this trimmer suppose to feed the string automatically? If not, then it sounds like the string is wound up on the spool the wrong direction.
