Trimmer runs but will not cut?


Is this gas or electric?
Sometimes if the trimmer cord is too long, the engine does not have enough power to spin it fast enough to allow it to cut.

I have an echo gt 2000 weed eater. I was using it the other day and it was working great and all of a sudden the trimmer head would not spin. What could it be?


one of two things has happened. 1 the trimmer head has melted where it gets driven by the shaft and needs to be replaced or 2 you have a fault in the drive line

TB70ss Trimmer runs but does not turn the string


Remove the angle drive gearbox near the string head and spin it to see if everything is moving properly. You may have stripped the gears out of it.

Trimmer starts but the spool wont turn anymore


you're trimmer could have one of two problems, One, if it has a clutch on the engine,( the way you would tell is if it doesn't spin when it idles. it has a clutch) Two, your trimmer would spin all the time, they use round flexable cables stamped square on both ends, which fit into square sockets one at the engine one at the trimmer head, so you're problem is either a worn out clutch, or, the cable is broken, or, one maybe both sockets have become rounded out. I hope this helps you out. Bob
