You mean the trimmer line...?
If so. It's run out. Need to rewind new line in.
Press the two tab on the side of the case and then pull the center out to (refill) new line. you should be good to go back in business like before.

Good luck

Echo string trimmer line will not advance.


I suggest you take all the string off the head and start over. Sounds like it may be twined around itself and won't unwind. I would try that before looking at other things.

Why won't the string advance?


many times it is because the string has welded itself inside the head . and we have to use pliers to help it get loose again .

How to restring drum on Echo 210 gas trimmer


Pull the head off by turning the inner hub counter clockwise while holding the outer head still. Once the inner head pops out, turn it over and look for the string rotation arrow. If you can't find the string winding directional arrow, start the trimmer and determine shaft rotation direction (generally counter clockwise) and wind the string in the same direction as the head rotates when installed.
Pull about 5 arm lengths of string out of a string spool and cut it off. Place the inner trimmer head on an object that will hold it while you pull the string to even lengths through the winding hole (the support brackets of a pickup truck tail gate work well for holding the inner head while doing this).
Begin wrapping the string double wraps in the proper direction, laying them evenly and closely to the previous wrap, working it back and forth as the string begins to build up. Avoid crossing the string over itself more than necessary, the string can weld itself together if the strands cross to awkwardly. Once the string is wound, hold the head with one hand and slide the string through the outer head holes, avoid letting the string come unwrapped.
Carefully place the inner head down into the outer header. Avoid letting the string get caught between the inner and outer head. Once the heads are together lock the inner head onto the outer head by turning it and locking the round knobs into the outer head slots.
You can trim the string or let the trimmer guard do it. If the string doesn't feed it is either wound the wrong way, tangled between the inner/outer head or welded to itself.

I have a Echo Gas trimmer SRM-210 Rapid feeder dual line. I need to know how to remove the entire drum for the string spool? NOT how to re-string but how to replace entire head/spool, as if I was going to...


In your manual under section 12: Line Head Installation. You will do the opposite of what it says here. The key is to LOCK the gear drive so the flex-drive shaft won't turn WHEN you are removing the trimmer head. They use a special tool (maybe you have it). But a small-shafted Phillips screwdriver or the like can be put in the drive hole to lock the gearing up as well. Look for the hole in the upper plate and align with the notch in the drive housing and grasping the entire string head unit, remove it. Here is your manual, see Section 12

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.

It's eating up the string - what do I do?


Try not to bounce the head unless the rpms rev high. High rpms are a sign that the string is worn short. Bounce the head to dispense more string only when it's obvious you need it. If you tear around bouncing the head on the ground or dragging it (sometimes it's hard not to...) all the time it's going leave two inch pieces of string everywhere because it's being dispensed when not needed. My new Echo was using string up faster than I liked so I tried a small test pack of string with a more aggressive cross section - It worked so well I bought a large roll.
