GH400 does not auto-feed.

I have a grasshog GH400, Type 1. Spool does not auto feed. Could it be the white gear inside the spool? The gear appears to be in place and moving, but I'm not sure what type of movement to look for.
The cap is also cracked, but the auto feed stopped working before the cap became cracked. I have the manual, which doesn't help. It seems the nylon cord becomes stuck inside once it begins to unwind. And yes, I have the proper cord size. thank you
Please don't refer me to a repair center, since it's cheaper to go buy a new edger. I'm sure that's what the manufacturer is hoping for anyway.

SOURCE: auto feed spool doesn't work

You may need to purchase a new spool housing, which may not be too hard to do, if you have one of the name brand trimmers. This replaces the whole mechanism that holds the line, the retaining ring, etc.

Need to replace the wirefeed? Purchased 8" orange


Hi gramcherry1...

1 Press the lock and rotate the spool counter-clockwise or some will remove the center knob.
2 Remove the locking ring if your weed eater has one.
3 Take off the automatic feed button.
4 Wipe away any dirt and debris.
5 Push down on the spool to release the locking tabs.
6 Remove the spool from the chamber.

Restringing the Weed Eater
1 Feed one end of the line into one of the holes of the spool, and secure the end that was inserted
2 Wrap the line in the direction of the arrows. Do this until until you fill the spool up with line.
3 Secure each of the lines into its own upper and lower grooves.
4 Re-install the spool into the chamber from which it was removed.
5 Pass the lines into the left and right holes and snap the spool into place.
6 Once the spool is in its sleeve and fed into its left and right eye holes, pull both ends simultaneously.
7 Reinstall the locking ring if necessary, reinstall the center knob.

I properly replaced the line spool but it won't feed automatically.


After you replaced your string in the trimmer and fed it through the hole in the plastic casing in which the spool fits into, did you pull the string until you hear a click? The click locks the string in, then you can bump and feed as usual. Otherwise it won't feed normally.

B & D auto feed string trimmer won't advance string


Is the string spool seated on the rachet correctly? If so and all is well, it is worth noting that these trimmers auto feed fuunction is problematic at best, requiring manually unwinding some line every few minutes as the unit gets older.

My Balck&Decker Grasshog won't automatically feed line.


Just replace the LEVER, Item #29, Part #598435-00, for about $3.00 (B&D, Dewalt). Just pull old level straight out (pliers) and push replacement in. Level end expands to hold it in place. No other parts. Forget cleaning and replacement the spool, graphite or oiling... just replace the lever.

I have bleck and decker grass hog auto feed and it does not work


There is a smalll white part below the spool called a "lever". This is likely in need of replacement. Call Black and Decker at 800-544-6986 with your Model No, and Date Code (stamped on the trimmer itself near where the extension cord plugs in). If it is still under warranty they will send you the replacement part - if not, I loooked it up and it's less than $3 for the part itself.

Line gets tangled in gear under feed spool


Problem solved. We noticed something was broken off a small part inside the spool holder. My husband took it to the local hardware store, and one of the employees gave him the part from a trimmer that had been returned.

Corded black and decker trimer


Please check your line diameter. If you are using stronger line than specified in the manual, it could be the root cause.
