You probably have to replace the rewind spring. If you are not familiar with how to do it, I would take it to a shop for repairs. If you have had your trimmer apart, then you know where things are. If you want to do it yourself, get back to me and I'll try to walk you through it. Good luck...Lee

Have a Ryobi weed wacker 725r 31cc click link Trimmer Plus. No more line-can't figure out how to remove bottom to replace the line or what kind of line to replace with. Deceased husband lost directions...


i also have a ryobi weed wacker. if it is the same. you don"t have to remove the button. line up the 2 arrows one on wheel with bumpy edges and one by the button. you should see 2 holes feed a 2-3 foot piece of line into the hole the line comes out of for cutting and it should come out of a curved holw on the bottom by the button .tuck the end into a small round hole . pull line tight (tug on the section that you cut with). wind the string by turn the ring around the button. til desired length. if this doesn't work. google you model # and look for a manual (manual for ryobi weed wacker model # ------------.)

The string head does not spin as fast as the


it sounds like the centrifugal clutch is slipping. take it to several shops and get some quotes. Most times you'll find that fixing a Ryobi is more expensive than buying a bnew one.

McCulloch mt 700 weed wacker,the weed wacker will not spin to cut the weeds


If the motor is running another possible solution is you have a broken drive shaft spring PN-753-04280 To check this remove the screw which holds the **** pipe to the motor and loosen the clamp. The **** pipe should pull right off the motor exposing the end of the drive shaft spring. Pull the end of the spring, if it comes out it is broken.

I cannot figure out how to open and respool the string on my mod 2816 mc culloch weed wacker and i do not have a manual.


I stopped in at a local lawn mower/small engine sales and repair shop and asked them if they could help me and they told me what to try before i brought it in to have them fix it. Their information proved to be very helpful and they saved me the trouble of bringing the weed wacker in. I now can reload the string myself.

Double spool on Weed Wacker


This isn't a solution to the problem. However, I think you should talk to someone at Home Depot or Lowes or wherever you bought the model, and see if the string is in there correctly; if it is, then u'r weed wacker must have some other mechanical problem. Sometimes it is just best to buy a new one. The more expensive models are the best.
