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

I have same issue and reversing line direction doesn't help, and my line is in the stated direction it should be, and it started suddenly after working ok for 4 years

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 factory-wound one (about $7) and alleluia, it works! Good luck.
