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

Grasshog trimmer line wont stop coming out and it won't break off

I have a brand new Grass hog trimmer. The line just keeps coming out. I tried taking it out and putting it back in, but it didn't help. I will actually either have to replace it with a different on or return it all together because the line came out so much that it wrapped around the motor and it was smoking!

    Hi. I realize that this is two years later, but I looked at your message when I recently had the same problem with my cordless 9" B&D trimmer/edger. I was looking to replace the 3-year old trimmer (which I really like), because the line, all of a sudden, would not quit advancing. Long story short, I replaced the spool with a new B&D machine wound one (about $7) and alleluia, it works! Good luck.

Rewind your string in the opposite direction than it is wound now.
If it is wound in the wrong direction it will cause the line to continue to feed out.
Good Luck, I hope this helped

For the cordless Grass Hog, the replacement spool is AF-100. You can purchase these spool heads online or maybe find them at your local hardware store, but they may be hard to find because the Grass Hog is not made any more.

I have a Black and Decker Grass Hog trimmer and I can't get it


There is only a couple of reasons that I can think of that would cause this

1. The string is wound the wrong direction; it should be wound clockwise on the spool. (This is my bet.)

2. Or maybe, the string is too small for your particular trimmer, but this is very doubtful.

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.

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.
