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

Open Question

String getting cut right past the ferrel on the spinning head.

This is model 82332 Black& Decker Yard Trimmer. When in use, the string will break right at the spinning head requiring much more feed reps. There is a metal ferrel that is supposed to prevent this. however, the ferrel is set back from the plastic housing (spinning head). Do to wear in the spinning head, the plastic has formed a v wedge which I believe is cutting the string prematurely. I would say this is a poor design. Is there a remedy for this problem?

SOURCE: string won't advance automatically. Thank you so

There is a rachet mechanism at the bottom of the spool. make sure the spool is seated fully. Also make sure the string isn't wound too tight or it will stick and not advance.

SOURCE: B & D auto feed string trimmer won't advance string

Is the string spool seated on the rachet correctly? If so and all is well, it is worth noting that these trimmers auto feed fuunction is problematic at best, requiring manually unwinding some line every few minutes as the unit gets older.

Black & Decker GH3000. String is stuck on reel.

We live in a townhouse so our yard is't very large. We had actually skipped a few weeks of cutting the grass since our reel mower blades were too dull to cut the thick weeds and grass. This thing got the job done and did't break a cord. Really love Black & Decker tools. More details about the tips and tricks about the Black & Decker Click the link String is stuck on reel

It looks like its working fine, but it doesn't cut the grass. Looks like the string is spinning with the turn instead of against it, if that makes any sense.

If the string is spinning it should cut no mater which way it is turning. maybe you aren't getting the trimmer close enough to the grass.

Go to home depot. look at the floor model and the replacement spools they sell there. Reverse engineer the stringing process or but a pre-loaded spool.
1. Squeeze the tabs on the side of the head of the unit to remove the spool cover.
2. remove spool.
3. place end of string in small hole in center ring of spool.
4. wide spool with string in the direction of the arrows printed on the spool. DO NOT OVERLOAD!.

6. thread 6" of string through hole in side of unit head, replace spool, and replace cover.
