Question about Garden

1 Answer

I ahve a model Weedeater fl20 and the string won't come out when tapped and when I tap it by hand, the string comes out less than an inch and the spool doesn't pop back up. I'm thinking that maybe the spring is to short but I don't see any way to take the spring shaft off. Any ideas? Thanks - Ed

The string gets caught and is jammed. Give the cover a quarter tun to remove it. Then, pull the spool off with the plastic cutting string. Unwind it a bit and rewind it so it's straightened out. Then feed the two ends out the holes on the side when you put it back.

Weedeater gas line


I ran a short piece of coathanger that I cut through the fuel line and used electrical tape (stretched tight) to tape it securely at the end and pushed it thru the hole. Then I removed the electrical tape and cut off the part of the hose that had been taped. You waste an inch or two of fuel line, but that's how I got mine thru. Sure hope this helps and best wishes.

How do iremove trimmer head weedeater fl20


It depends on your model. You can visit the PIVOTRIM website and they show how to install their head on most units which includes how to take your old one off. Their website is http://www.pivotrim.com
Otherwise you need to look at your operators manual or call the manufacturer.

Can not remove troy bilt weedeater head


Once all the bolts are removed, tap all the way around, (with a rubber mallet), where the head meets the bottom portion of the motor. It should come right off with a little coaxing.

Water dispenser is not working


I fixed mine by leaving the light on the dispenser on. It took about 6 hrs, but the little heat from the light bulb was enough to defrost the water line.
