SOURCE: Black & Decker GL720 Strimmer not working

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.

Many thanks

Simon

SOURCE: GL 320 String trimmer - nylon string keeps breaking

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.

Black decker troubleshooting


ensure the spool is not ended if so replace with new spool of string. also check the retaining screw in the middle is not too tight. undo it one click at a time to alow the spool to unwind when the motor runs


always disconnect your strimmer from the power when doing this also wear protective footware and long trousers, when using such tools.

Rethreading a garden strimmer


Hi Deborah,
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.
