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--

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
