You may not have the drive shaft seated all the way into the power head.
You will have to loosen up the drive shaft and push the shaft in but at the same time turning the trim head to fit it into the drive area, then tighten it back down.

    what do you mean by loosen up the drive shaft? when you slide the trimmer head onto the shaft there is only one way to slide it and it is marked,it has no threads and i think you are right it doesn't go all the way end for some reason,because when started it turns,but ejects off when you try to cut with it

Trimmer head won't stay on


Use a piece of trimmer like in head. As you slide it on it will likely be tight and hard to come off

Weedeater and Homelite shafts interchangeable?


Just give it a try. Some different brands will interchange. I have done this with a Toro and it is still running.

Once you have the string wound onto the spool, place the spool onto the shaft and pull the strings out of the slots so that the string feeds through the holes without going through the slots. Good luck...Lee

Weedeater starts fine but the string head will not spin. I removed the string head, and the shaft it connects to is not spinning either.


The shaft cable has either come loose at the head, or is broken at the engine most likely. Is this a 2 piece unit? If so, see if the cable turns with the grass trimmer section removed. If so, it is usually easiest to just replace the trimmer shaft section. One piece units require disassembly at the engine, and if you are not mechanically inclined, that can be a pain.

The head on my troybuilt weedeater TB70SS stopped spinning at higher RPMs. It will spin at real low RPMs. Help please?


if it is cable driven, if the shaft is curved it a cable , the cable is broken.
if it is a straight shaft with a gear box the gears are probably stripped

The trimmer head will not spin under power


The drive shaft is not set all the way into position. You will have to take the front casing off, as well as the lower part of the shaft, and work it into position that way. You may have to play with it a little bit.
