They come with a rig pin to lock the spool in place, then turn the large platic ball on the bottom of the trimmer head COUNTER CLOCKWISE. do not try to fill up the spool with line it will only get stuck and melt together. You should also sprinkle the line with baby powder as you wind it up as it reduces sticking too.
For Black and Deckers: Remove cup from bottom of unit by depressing 2 detent tabs and pulling away from unit. Replace empty spool with new full one or wind on aftermarket string. Wind in direction of arrow on spool. Make sure spool is seated on rachet firmly.
No fuse on that old of a model . Probably element bad or thermostat . You can get a restring kit a lot less expensive , but you would have to restring it yourself (not that hard though) or , you can buy the element already strung and all you have to do is transfer the thermostat and install . complete pt # Y303404 ...Restring element pt # Y313538
Cut two pieces of 18" commercial grade line - one to mount on each side. Look at the series of holes, two on bottom of rotating head, two immediately above but on outer lip of plate. Go up through the bottom two holes, even up your piece of line (like when you are putting in a new shoe string in a pair of shoes) and cross over then out through the top two. All done. If you are using an adequate grade of commercial line you can trim for hours over the roughest of stuff without worrying about restringing.
