Question about Black & Decker String Trimmer Cordless 12" 18V

Open Question

Adding rope to spool

When I removed the spool from the trimmer, there was not "starter" rope to show direction. Is there a way to figure out which direction to wind the rope onto the spool? As there are two "channels", it appears that I must wind rope twice in two separate dircetions. Is this true? Also, what part of the spool do I anchor the rope to before winding so it doesn't unwind ?
thanks

SOURCE: How do I refill the spool with new cord. the whole

The grasshog xp takes .080 heavy duty line, do not use any other grade other then .080!
First remove the orange cap by depresssing the two buttons. Next unscrew the screw and remove the tumbler. You'll want about 50' of line for each of the two spindle slots. Start on the spindle closest to you by inserting about an inch of line into the hole in the base and statr winding it snugly in the direction as show on the spool, take your time and do it nice and neat and the line will last you longer then if you rush and do it sloppy. At the end leave about 6/8 inches and temporarily fasten the end on one of the nitched holders. Start the inside spool from the opposite end that you started the other and repeat the same. Once they are both spooled and temporarily fastened at opposite ends from each other reattach the spool onto the edger, fasten the screw in place and un fasten each end at a time inserting the line through the wholes each on oppoing sides. Then reinstall the safety cap and you are done! For taking 15/20 minutes and 1/4 the cost of buying a new spool and saving throwing the old spool away it is well worth it =)

SOURCE: 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.

Remove the tube that holds the flex-drive shaft from the front of the motor cover.Remove the rear engine cover. Remove the throttle cable from the carburetor. Mark and unplug any wires for the on/off switch that go to the ignition coil (underneath front cover) if possible. Now if you have pulled the driveshaft tube out of the way, the clutch drum is up next. Inside it, screwed into the very end of the engine's crankshaft is a Torx #25 screw. Before you loosen it, you will have to lock up the engine. To do so, remove the spark plug. Pull on the starter until the piston is down, then insert a length of clean, soft rope into the engine. The engine will come up and compress the rope, thus locking it in place to allow clutch drum and clutch removal. Loosen the T-25 screw inside the drum.. You may be able to remove it with a long thin-blade screwdriver also.It probably won't come completely out...it is made this way. Next, remove the clutch. It is screwed onto a small threaded section of the crankshaft Removal is counterclockwise.. It will be pretty tight. To help, apply peneterating oil. Whack the ears of the clutch near the center with a dull flat-blade chisel and hammer unless there are bolts. then use wrench. It will turn counterclockwise for removal and there will probably be a removal direction arrow on it's face. After getting that off, remove the Torx screws holding the cover to the engine. The starter unit should be mounted inside as it mates with the top of the flywheel to start the motor. Remember to preload tension (5-7 turns) on the starter unit. Make sure the handle is installed. Jam the unit with a screwdriver or vise grips or have someone help you hold it so you can insert and tie off the new rope. Then remove jam device and let recoil pull your new rope into place while holding the handle. Reassemble and you are done. Disassembly requires Torx head drivers

How to replace pull cord on ryobi 725r trimmer?


Before you start... transfer the handle assy to the new rope. Remove the old rope and install the new rope just like the old one. Make sure to tie 1 knot in the end of the rope so that the rope ded not pull out of the handle

-Remove the recoil assy.
-Remove the old rope.
-Wind the spool counter clockwise until it stops
-Back up the spool until the rope hole aligns with the rope guide. DO NOT let the spool unwind. It really takes 2 people to do this.
-Burn the end of the new rope with a match and very quickly while it is still soft. pinch the end of the rope to make it as small as possible.
-Thread the new rope through the rope guide and into the hole for the knot of the spool.
-Use a scribe or needle to lift and pull the new rope through the hole
-Tie 1 knot in the rope
-Pull the knot into the hole in the spool
-Let go of the spool and the rope will rewind
-Install recoil assy
-RETURN TO SERVICE

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

Broken rop on weedeater gas trimmer


There is a spring under the starter spool, the one with the rope on it, leave the spring ALONE, Just take the spool and replace the rope as it is. You take the spool off, put the new rope on the spool, place the spool onto the spring and by holding one end of the rope straight up in one of the slots on the spool, go as many times as you can. When you have it as tight as it can go, hold your thumb down on the spool. Insert the rope through the hole available, grab the rope on the other side of the hole, (outside the casing). Hold the rope and S-L-O-W-L-Y allow the rope to retract. If it finishes before the rope runs out, pull on the rope and install the handle. If it tries to go beyond, hold the rope and install the handle there. Hope you have luck. Remember, leave the spring alone...Lee

Adjusting the start handle


After I get the rope rewound on the spool, I place the spool in the housing pull about 2 inches of rope through the slot in spool and rope end will be facing you. Then wind the spring by turning the spool in the same direction that you would pull to start. Then thread the rope through the starter housing and then tighten keeper that holds the spool in place. If is still will not keep tension, your spring is probably broken.

Problem getting my craftman weedtrimmer string from being struck model 358.792150


Disassemble the starter mechanism, if rope is frayed, replace. Check movement of dogs on the starter sometimes they get rusty and freeze or do not move freely, free them up and lubricate. Check the cogs on the spool If they are worn bad, replace. Remove spool (carefully not to bring spring with it) and blow out housing below spool and clean it and spring with carb. cleaner or alcohol. Be sure to blow out the carb. cleaner with air immediately as it could attack the plastic. Now assemble, it should work much better.
