It sounds like the string is not spooled correctly. Try re-spooling the string, ensuring the string will be able to freely move when the feeder is bumped.

Either that or you may be almost out of string and need to get more and re-spool.

You are pulling the trigger to make it spin while bumping, right? The bump-n-go action is based on centrifugal force.

How do you advance the line on the trimmer


To advance the line on a trimmer just push down in the center of the spool head then pull on both lines at the same time and it should release and inch or so of line. If it has a spring on the inside of the head then just tap it in the center of the head on a hard corner surface while its running and it will release more line out. That is what ya call a bump feeder as such.

Missing the user's manual for Homelite ut20635r trimmer sold by sears


within the bump head (once opened) you will see add arrows, this indicates which direction you add the line, usually opposite to each other, you will have line hold points (4) within the cup. once you have fulled the cup head with line (octupus needed), thread each line through feeder holes and push line into housing making sure you pull line out through the feeder at same time as pushing into head. pold the hell out of everthing or it will go haywire. Vrey difficult, but after about 300 tries at it, you will still go to the dealer to do it. If you can make any heads or tales of my solution..good luck but its how you do it. Regards Russ

Lost owners manual, how do I advance the string


Hi don watts46...
Bump the rotating end of the trimmer on the ground while it is running and it will automatically feed the line out, the more you bump the more line feeds out.

The nylon thread has worn down. How do I get more of it to come off the spool which is still full?


Hi cmlontg152...

You will have the grass hog running and then bump the turning head on the ground and it will automatically feed out the line, the more you bump it on the ground the longer the line will be...don't make it too long at a time...only what you need.

While trimmed is in use, how do I release more trimmer line?


Bumping the string head lightly on the ground will release more trimmer line if the line was loaded properly and spooled in the correct direction. If the line was loaded wrong, doing this procedure won't help. Make sure your line was loaded correctly. Do this bump as the engine is slowing down or running slow. Most all gas trimmers work this way, but some of the electric ones have automatic line feed and no bumping is necessary.

Ryobi Reeleasy line trimmer head PROBLEM


sounds like the clip isn't engaging properly. For a bump and feed they have steps that lock when enough cord is set out. If the head is not locked when its on it will recoil in. Try to make sure its not sitting wrong.

No directions on how to re-string the spool on my TB-720


On the bump mechanism, line up the two arrows, then unscrew the bump, this will release the spool, then you wind the two strings in the opposite directions, the arrow on the spool will tell you the direction to wind the string, replace spool, spring, bump feed, and you are good to go. I hope this has helped you.
