If your clutch is spinning you more than likely have broken the drive shaft that goes down to the head. it is fairly common with craftsman weed trimmers.

Why does the head stop moving?


with trimmers , there is a shaft or as in a bent shaft a cable that has square drives and ends
these can become oval or break off if continual heavy loads are applied to the cutter head
next there is a centrifugal clutch at the top of the shaft and if continually used in heavy work that clutch will wear out and not grip sufficiently to drive the shaft
most cutter heads do not suffer problems other than to get loose and work down the tube thereby allowing the square drives to part

Does trimmer head spin at idle


this is a hard question ,ill start with the text book answer , NO the idle should be low enough to disengage the clutch and remove power from head . but in reality this always is not possible , me I judge a clutch and engine idle % to be working correct if I can put cutting head on ground and not have it take off with throttle closed off

Not sure what you mean but if you are saying the weedwacker head is not engaging it may be the cable that goes from the motor to the weedwacker head and runs down the inside of the shaft.

Cutter spins freely


The driveshaft is broke in the tube or the head drive is broken or srtipped out. Take head off and pull out the cable. It just slides out.
