SOURCE: how far does the return gas line on a ryobi string trimmer extend

There is supposed to be a barb fitting with a flange on top of it that is on the end of the hose, inside the tank. If you do not have that barb in place the gas will start to leak out of the tank in a short time. Barb fitting is designed to have hose stick up about 3/16" into the tank when the hose is properly installed. You put the new hose on the fitting, thread the other end of the hose through the fill opening of the tank and out the hole in the bottom. Pull hose through until barb comes through the hole in the tank and the flange is flush with the inside bottom of the tank. There is supposed to be a plastic ring that fits over the bulge in the hose/barb at the bottom of the tank on the outside. Serves as a retainer for the fitting.

My echo srm 225 string trimmer line will not advance. Have rewound line and clear out grass from inside head.

Sometimes the spring may need extending as over time the bumping makes the spring lose its push tension causing no line advance

If you look closely inside the shield, at what would be the leading edge as the string approaches, you should find a little cutter that trims the line if it is too long. This can get dull. I have had to sharpen the one on my B&D with a file before.

How to extend line

In most trimmers you tap the line spool on the ground while the engine is running and the line extends. When you have the engine off try to manually extend the line. When you push ******* the spool manually with one hand and then pull on the line with the other hand the line may extend. If it does and you tap it in the same place as you push it while the engine is running then the line should extend durring operation. I hope this helps.

I have a Gas Powered Ryobi CS30 Edge Trimmer. I'm using ACE brand Trimmer Line, .08 in. diameter. I can't seem to keep the line itself from wrapping around the spool. I just don't get it. Do I...

I see you having problem with some cheaper brand of "kinky" line. I have had some success by doing the following to the line. Soak the whole package of line in a bucket of water for 24 hours. I am not real sure what this does, but it seems to take some of the stiffness and rigidity out of the line. A problem I get is the line drawing back into the head after extending it through the eyelets. Softer line results in less coiling and I hope it helps you too.

I cannot get more line out of my toro 15" electric trimmer. It cannot be empty, it has only been used once. The cutting line will not extend out any more. Should it not?

Sometimes the line can become fused together.remove the spindle and manually pull the line. Replace and the tap and feed should work fine.

Hi I recently bought a Ryobi RLT26CDS. Every time the thread needs extending I have to undo all the gadget and manually pull and extend the thread. could you please tell me how I could extend the thread...

'Bump' the strimmer line unit on the ground (this is how it releases the line)-It sometimes gets stuck(welded to the sides if the release chamber-it gets hot and melts)-
hope this helps

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.

Hi i can't extend the plastic strimming cord on my bacl and decker. any ideas how to do this? I have tried everything other than taking it to bits! thanks ian

If the trimmer works like most trimmers it has a "tap and go" system. This means you just tap the bottom of the trimmer to the grass surface while it is spinning. Then there is a knife that cuts the line to the proper length.

Sometimes this system needs servicing to work as it should i.e you have to take it apart, usually not very complicated.

Good luck!
