Brand New B&D 18v trimmer and string breaks off right away

You can go out to trim, and it keeps feeding itself out till nothing is left in a couple of minutes. Called B&D and they said it could be the white thing inside where you install the line that is touchy, so they sent another one, but still same problem. What am I doing wrong??? Is there a trick or something???

SOURCE: 18v cordless string trimmer will not stop feeding line

Some of the trimmers recommend a certain size line, if you have one of these that let line out as needed, the speed at which the trimmer cuts will let out line as needed. If you have too small of line the drag for the friction let-out you will spoll all the line out. Make sure the line is the right size, They come in alot of sizes, anywhere from .060" to .125" line thickness so make sure you have the right size line!

You have the string wound the wrong way on the spool.

SOURCE: GL 320 String trimmer - nylon string keeps breaking

It sounds like the sting is wound backwards. Try winding a short piece in the opposite direction. If it is backwards, it will be gone in a hurry.

SOURCE: B & D auto feed string trimmer won't advance string

Is the string spool seated on the rachet correctly? If so and all is well, it is worth noting that these trimmers auto feed fuunction is problematic at best, requiring manually unwinding some line every few minutes as the unit gets older.

For your machine, make sure you are using the Manufacturer's recommended trimmer line. For your model, they recommend using Echo brand .080" Cross Fire diameter line. You also need to insure that when you load the spool with the line, that it is loaded (in the right direction) so it can feed properly.

How do I get my Black and Decker 12"bump feed trimmer/edger out of the groom position and into the edge position? My boyfriend misplaced the instructions to our new edger and I can't figure it out.


The handle/shaft is in two parts. By grasping the upper part of the shaft with one hand, and the lower part with the other, you can move the two sections slightly apart, then twist to turn the trimming end 180-degrees.

I am trying to spool trimming line into my black and decker GH1000. It is supposed to feed automatically. It is not. I'm afraid I fed the line onto the spool incorrectly. Need help


Yes, it does feed automatically.
Please make sure the trimming line spooled in your spool regularly.

If above does not work, please go to service center to change a lever inside spool housing.

Don't know how to rethread the line


Breaking off is a normal process. Set the centre of your line in the spool and wind the two strands in to the Spool, thread and re assemble. C
