Trimmer line is spinning but slowly, like it has lost power.


Sounds like just what you said "it's lost power" Are you sure the battery is fully charged? Try another battery if you have one. There is no clutch to slip on this type trimmer. It's got to be either the battery is not putting out enough to turn the motor or the motor itself is bad.

I have an electric RYOBI weed eater and I need HELP...manual/instructions on how to access the spool so I can feed the line through the exit hole and use the thing! Thank you. Have two numbers: EL...


Unscrew thw bump nut to remove the spool. Take a length of about 6 foot of line, kink it in the middle and pass this through the hole in the spool. Wind the two lengths of line around the spool in their own divisions and in the same direction. The direction of wind is embossed in the reel and the line should be wound tightly and held all the while. When you have about 6-8 inches left in your hand, bring the cover up to the spool and carefully pass the two ends of the line through the holes, push the cover all the way over while pulling on the two pieces of line and ensuring that the lines stay on their own side of the division on the spool. Fit and tighten the bump nut and trim the lines to just about the cut-off blade.
The lines should trail out of the holes in the direction of the machine's rotation. Try cut with the tip of the line as much as possible. Cutting nearer the drum flexes the line and will lead to early breaking of the lines. Run the motor at a constant speed and rather move the cutting head in and out of the weeds to affect a deeper cut

Need info on putting line on troy bilt 4-cycle string trimmer. Need to know how to get spool off trimmer to replace trimming string on the spool.


Hold orange spool containing string while twisting the black plastic cap in the center, counterclockwise. This retaining cap is loosely spring loaded, so watch for the spring falling out. Once this locking cap is removed, the spool pulls right off.

How do you refill the string on the homelite electric, straigh shaft, 13 in Trimmer?


Is the sting the cutting line at the bottom of the trimmer? If it is pull the spool out. At the bottom of the spool there is an arrow pointing in the direction that the line should be wound. When you first put in the line be sure to place the cutting line in the grove (V shape) and then when you put enough line around the spool. Thread the end of the line thru the hole on the side of the spool. Slide the spool over the shaft of the trimmer and it will click in. When the line is short just tap the spool lightly on the grass and it will feed out more line.
Good Luck.

Cannot get my trimmer started.


Tom, it sounds like part of the rope has jumped off of the spool. There should be a small piece of plastic with a screw holding the spool in place. It may have worked itself loose.

Which way do you wind up the trimmer line so it doesn`t hang up on the spool when you need more line?


The direction of winding is on the spool and/or in the manual, if the line is getting stuck here are some tips:

Use only premium quality line of the correct size and shape, do not buy the mega rolls that will last you a lifetime rather buy the small roll each spring as the line can get brittle and weaken over time.
Avoid winding the line tight like fishing line on a reel and while winding occasionally dust it with baby powder.
Do not fill the spool with line more than half way.
Practice running the trimmer only fast enough to do the job, running the trimmer wide open is necessary only to add power for thick weeds. Running at high RPM makes the gear head, spool and line to overheat which can make the line 'vulcanize' to itself. You will also find that running at half or less speed uses up much less line and will make the trimmer last longer.

If you find that much of your trimming is in high, dense weeds such as a ditch that gets trimmed three or four times a year you may want to invest in a different head that utilizes plastic blades that swing out when spinning, these are much better than they were in the past and work great by limiting the cutting to a smaller area, they are stiffer and cut heavy weeds better. I chose a trimmer with the strait shaft and quick-link so I can easily change from the brush hog, line or swing out trimmer. I use the line trimmer only in areas where a deft touch is required such as around trees, shrubs or other delicate plants I do not want to accidentally scar or damage.
