SOURCE: my homelite trimmer string keeps getting stuck

It's sticking pretty good. Try what I do: Pull the head off and clean it out pretty good. Also clean where the spool attaches to the trimmer. Before you reassemble it, give it a shot of powdered graphite (I get mine at the hardware store. It's for locks). Reassemble the spool onto the trimmer. Bump it on the ground several times to distribute the graphite within the head. Now, press the head in and pull on the trimmer line. It should dispense a little line and stop, just like when the machine is in operation. If it works, you're done! If it doesn't work, you will need to replace the spool. They are available at the major hardware stores. Even if you have to replace the spool, the graphite trick is a good one. It'll keep the head dispensing line smoothly. I add the graphite probably every 7th or 8th time I rewind the spool.
Best regards, --W/D--

SOURCE: Featherlite/Mightylite 26ss pull cord will not

They don't spin with the engine, however pinning them together isn't your fix. The spring has to be fixed at both ends, sounds like one end or the other is comming out of its keeper. Check if the ends are broken

How do u put on replacement spool???


This sounds like a trimmer question and was categorized wrong, if so most rimmers simply unscrew @ the bottom of the head and then you can access the spool dolly @ which time you wind the string in the direction of the arrow. Make sure to follow manufacturers recommendation on thread size. Also make sure you replace the spring as you took it off

I just returned my new Poulan Pro Line Trimmer b/c the spool and shaft overheated to the point the spool melted away from the shaft. What am I doing wrong?


I don't think you are doing anything wrong unless this is like your third time returning it, probably just a lemon your new one should work fine Poulan is a good name.

Refill line on spool of toro electric model 910


Onve you remove the cover the spool should pull straight out. Be careful, there's a spring under the spool that can fly out and get lost. You need that spring to re-assemble.

Need info on putting line on troy bilt 4-cycle string trimmer. Need to know how to get spool off trimmer to replace trimming string on the spool.


Hold orange spool containing string while twisting the black plastic cap in the center, counterclockwise. This retaining cap is loosely spring loaded, so watch for the spring falling out. Once this locking cap is removed, the spool pulls right off.

Pull string for Weed Eater Featherlite Plus came out


If you have the starter spool out (the one the rope goes in)...Here is what to do. Take the starter spool and change the rope out putting it back exactly as it was. Leave the rope hanging. Hold the spool and set it down on the rewind spring. Turn the spool on the rewind spring until you feel it is tight enough. While turning, hold the rope in the little slot in the spool so it can go around without hanging up. Once it is tight, get the rope in line with the spool opening and SLOWLY let the rope rewind. Put on the handle and put the unit back together.Good luck...Lee

Threading line on black & decker GL301 strimmer


Do you mean that the string keeps feeding as you try to operate the trimmer?

If so, you are winding the string on the spool the wrong way. Put the string on the spool in a clockwise direction. This should do it.
