If the line keeps getting too long, it's because swivel 14 in diagram 7 was in the wrong position when you inserted the spool - just move it to the ouside position, re-insert the spool and away you go. Frankie.

Go to Homebase, B&Q, Ebay or your local hardware shop and buy a new spool, ALM part number BD032.

Hi there, I just thought I'd mention that I also have a Black & Decker GL720 with the same problem. I'm pretty sure it is less than 1 year old too, so well within the 2 year manufacturer's guarantee here in the UK. I think it may be a UK specific model and the phone number from MrFixIt looks like a US number.
I have tried taking the plastic casing apart, but with no luck, as the two halves won't come apart easily, even after removing all the screws. Ah! OK, I've found out the reason that it wouldn't come apart now, there is a screw hidden under the 123 sticker.
It's all apart now, and I see what is wrong, there is a belt running between a small cog and a large cog, and in my case the large cog has partially melted and the belt has come off. Unfortunately, I'm not sure I can get the replacement part now. Hopefully with yours, MrFixit, the belt might have just slipped off, fingers crossed.
Anyway, here is a service diagram of it in case it will help anybody, but as you will see it says only certain parts can be ordered. If anyone locates a supplier of all the parts please post it here.

SOURCE: Rethreading a garden strimmer
You need to start from the beginning of the trimmer string. Remove the entire spool. Insert the start of the line through and wedge it into the little groove to keep it from coming loose. Now wind the line tightly and neatly in the direction shown on the spool. (it should provide an arrow stating to "wind this way". As you near the end of the line, keep it snug and push the end through the hole where it leads out to the cutting zone. As you re-insert the spool into the housing, make sure it stays tightly wound as you lock it into place. This should help. Usually when your string is too short, you tap the **** of the spool on the ground to advance the line. It should feed a bit at a time, and when you hear it getting cut off, you should stop advancing the line.
Hope this helps.

It sounds like the sting is wound backwards. Try winding a short piece in the opposite direction. If it is backwards, it will be gone in a hurry.
