Did you ever get an answer to this problem? I'd like to know because I have the same problem with my cordless 14" Black N Decker Gass Hog. I rethread it, but the line continually feeds and is out in about 2 minutes.

SOURCE: auto feed will not work

I think your problem is the little plastic ( white ) lever ( part# 598435-00 ) on the inside of the housing that holds the spool. Mine was working fine and then it just stopped feeding line altogether. I would order a couple (3-4) so you have them in stock. Looks like a part that will wear out fast. I wish they still sold a bump type weed eater. Hope that helps.

It's cheapest to buy a new one. I had that problem last year.

How do you replace the white lever, and how do you know if it is broken?

How do I change the line on my 25 cc homelite zip start trimmer


1) Use a pair of vise grips to open the wheel on the bottom of the feede;
2) Remove the wheel, taking care not to lose the screw inside it;
3) Remove the outside wheel, feed line into one of the interior wheels and wind it around until the wheel is full following the direction of the arrow on the outside. Leave enough line (4 - 6") to feed out the holes;
4) Repeat for other wheel;
5) Replace wheel, feeding excess line into outside wheel holes on wheel frame still attached to weedeater;
6) Hold wheel together tightly and reattach wheel hub. Hand tighten only as it will tighten itself with use and require vise grips to remove again.


Hope this helps.

My auto line feeder won't stop feeding line out. any suggestions?


Rewind your line the opposite direction you wound it on this last time.
If it is wound in the wrong direction, it will continue to feed out while running and that is your problem.
I hope this helped,

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.

Ryobi 725R weedeater


First unscrew the bump line leter outer. Then remove the yellow line holder, you will see 2 line grooves for each of 2 lines you will wind into the spool. You will see an inlet area at each of the 2 line holders, you will take about 8-10 feet of line and thread the line into the the groove inlet it will poke out the top of the spool. You will see 2 small holes on the top of the spool, feed just the tip of the line into the hole and pull the line tight on the groove side. Do this on both grooves on the spool, once the line is secure, fish each line into the holes on the spool head and secure with the bump spool leter outer. After spool is secure take the entire spool and wind back into the spool head. you will see the line wind into the spool. make sure you wind the right direction. Once you have seen how this is done, look at the bottom of your assembled spool and you will see 2 arrows. If you have no line in the spool, line up the arrows and take 8-10 feet of line and feed as you did when you have the spool removed. The line should feed through the spool and the line will stick up from the bottom, turn the line and feed just the tip of the line into the retainer hole and pull tight from the spool let-out, once secure wind line back into the spool. Once you have done this once its very easy to do over and over!!!

Black line in auto feed


If you lift the scanner cover, you should see an area on the right end of the platen glass marked at the edge with arrows as Read Area. This is the area used when documents are scanned through the auto feed. Make sure that the glass is completely clean in this area, as any dirt will show up as a line on the copied image.
