Black & decker LST201 direction loading the string weed eater

if it uses 2 strings ( one out of each side of the spool
wind in both strings together in the anticlockwise direction
that way , when you put the spool in the head and go to use it , the string is wound the right way to feed out and not get tangled

I have a smith corona electra 220 and the space bar does not advance the paper tot the next spot. everything else works. took the back cover off,a nd found a loose string coming from a black spool. can you...


That is what we call the draw string, there is a spring loaded pull that this string is. Wound around. The pulley has to be wound up and. Then the string fits in a. Little slot. Somme times the spring breaks in the pulley, the string fits in a slot by .a knot which sometimes breaks, sorry about the bad news, the string is fishing line and wears out as it gets old.

Line does not advance.


I'd try to remove the spool to see if the cord is out. The cord may also not be wound on the spool correctly. I try to keep tension on the cord as I replace the spool to keep the cord from unraveling.

How do you advance the string


These little electric machines have an automatic line feeding system. Do not bump the trimmer head on the ground attempting to make line advance. If the line advance is not functioning like it should, then the string head should be removed and the spool inspected for snags and tangles.

Black&decker GH 1000 trimmer. The line breaks when spool is full


Try using a thicker line when using the thinner line it is good only for grass if you should hit fence or concrete it will eat it up and you will be pulling it out every 5 minites or less.

String on weed wacker does not automatically advance.


the notice on the trimmer says it has an AFS Automatic Feed Spool, "NO BUMPING REQUIRED". I see that underneath the spool, there's a small plastic centrifugal weightwith a peg on it. . It kinda looks like it might advance the line each time the electric motor starts and stops. If there are loose clippings in there, or if the weight is stuck, it probably would cause the problem.

String won't advance automatically. Thank you so much for any assistance! It's a Black & Decker ST 7000 edger/trimmer.


There is a rachet mechanism at the bottom of the spool. make sure the spool is seated fully. Also make sure the string isn't wound too tight or it will stick and not advance.

Reloaded string empties and shreds continuously in seconds


It sounds like you may need to replace the head. It is designed to advance and stop, but your's isn't stopping. Try this: Clean the inside of the head and connection to the machine well. Put some graphite inside the spool and where it connects to the machine; be generous with the graphite. Put the head back on with some line properly wound onto the spoo (note arrows on back of spool). With the machine off tap the head on the ground enough to disperse the graphite thoroughly in the head. Now, push the head as though to advance the line, and pull on the line. If it advances a little and stops, it is working. Do this several times to be sure. If you can get it working like this, you're good to go. If not, replace the spool. Even with the new spool, occasionally put some graphite in it to keep the line advance smooth!

Best regards, --W/D--.....Please feel free to rate this solution. Thanx!
