You will need to buy a new feeder head, if your model's head unscrews, normaly when these stop working there is not much you can do to fix it.

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.

Does not advance line when Ibumpthe head. Is it supposed to. It is new.


no this is a autofeed head it is suppose to maintain a length of cord automatically . but as it does not say in manual ill let you know a few unwritten details , it will only feed line out when ran at full speed , and it automatically cuts ends of new line to keep a sharp edge, so caution ends can come flying off at anytime with no warning , these sometimes do have a problem if one does not observe direction of arrows to show direction too wind new line on spool, or if line is wound too tightly on the spool , line should slip off the spool with ease , less line is more line in this case

if you have a manual check where your feed dog knob is, push the knob in the opposite direction,,if that doesn't help then something may be wrong with the feed dogs,,you should be able to see the feed dogs in the needle plate area & to feel them with your fingers.
you may need to have the machine serviced at a sewing shop

Line jams on my black & decker grass hog (model gh400, type 5)


You need to replace the auto feed lever, It is plastic and I have had to replace mine several times. The part number is 385017- 01 G11. Go on line and find a service center such as Dewalt in your area. Lowes, etc. doesn't usually keep them in stock. Hope this helps.

I have bleck and decker grass hog auto feed and it does not work


There is a smalll white part below the spool called a "lever". This is likely in need of replacement. Call Black and Decker at 800-544-6986 with your Model No, and Date Code (stamped on the trimmer itself near where the extension cord plugs in). If it is still under warranty they will send you the replacement part - if not, I loooked it up and it's less than $3 for the part itself.

Have Lexmark X7170 Have black line running on copy on left third only when using auto feed.


IF the line only appears on the autofeed, then the feeder optics have a dirt or some other contaminate on the optical sensor/lens area. A good cleaning inside the autofeed where the optics scan should resolve
