Pull Cord Will Only Pull Out 3-4 Inches Then Sticks

I was replacing the spool head on my Poulan Weedeater Featherlite. After I replaced it, I was unable to fully pull the cord to start it. I don't think the piston is seized since it the pull cord does pull out 3-4 inches. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Take it apart as you did before. Look for whatever it is binding. Did you rewind the rope so there is a good amount of tension? If you didn't, then do that . Good luck, Lee

My Featherlite Weedeater shocks me when I touch the rod that the spool is attached to. ( I am a woman, can you tell, lol) The only thing I can figure out is the repairman took off the rubber sparkplug...


Yes, that is the problem if the metal loop is touching part of the trimmer. If it's not touching anything, I guess it's possible that the spark could be jumping; causing the whole trimmer to be electrified...Yikes!! Are you touching the spool while it is still running??!

Just bought a TE475. can't figure out how to replace the line compared to the traditional one-line configuration I am used to


Here is the info from the manual, the replacement line is put in near the center of the spool on the top of it, you simply feed it in. I have included a link to the manual so you can see the pictures. Look at page 10 for these instructions.

Hello, I have a Weedeater Featherlite and can't find the manual. I used up the line, and bought replacement line (didn't see replacement heads.) I guessed at how to wrap it on there, but I can't release...


The Featherlite should use .065 trimmer line and has to be wound the OPPOSITE way the head turns. There should be an arrow on the spool showing which way to wind line.....

I have a weedeater brand weedeater and need to know how to take the spool off so I can wind more line on it?


if its the newer type all you need to do is grab the black knob at the bottom of the trimmer head and pull it carefully straight towards you and it should pop off
wind line on the spool in the direction the arrow shows you there is a small hole you put the line in to start the line before you wind it it is labeled .065 or .080
wind about 10-15 feet of either .065 line or .080 line and lock the line in at the edge of the spool and thread the excess thru the hole and push spool back on and pull each line until it unhooks from where you locked it in .
this is the directions to the weedeater heads and spools mostly used on this product.

if its two lines then pull out 20 feet of new line cut it and put the two cut ends side by side and insert the cut ends into their respective holes in the spool and wind in the direction of the arrow until you wind to the loop then cut the loop lock your lines into place and thread it thru both holes keeping the lines kind of tight and push the spool onto the housing as it snaps in pull each line to unlock it from where they were held so the bump feed will work.

hope this helps you
