It sounds like the rod that runs from the motor to the head, is either loose or it has broken, so when you turn it upside down that causes it to engage itself and turn. You will have to take this apart and make sure that the holding clamps are in place

Weed eater wt255cls brand new starts but the trimming head is not spinning? seems to be in neutral?


hello,,There are only three things to cause trimmer head not to turn.
1.Outer shaft has sliped down from engine because screw has fallen out and ring has come loose,
2.Shaft has broken due to excess stress,such as putting on a differant trimmer head or binding up,
3.Trimmer head striped.
hope this helps,any comments welcome,thank you.

Head on weed whacker wont spin


If the weed **** head turns freely before starting and after started still doesn't spin, check for a broken flex shaft or damaged end.

Sounds like the clutch has taken a long trip south. If the clutch pads are not wore out, try some wd40 on the pad hinges.

B&D grasshog XP motor squeeled and spin rate slowed. repairable?


Hello,

I just saw your post. Check the area between the housing and the head, along the shaft. Fibrous debris (in my area, this loosely translates into "lilly leaves") gets wound around the shaft, and will slow the universe down to a crawl. The only way to get it loose is to cut it loose, or unwind it.
Best regards, --W/D--
