Usually you "Push in" as you turn them. Or...there is a knob with a male thread shaft screwed into place holding it all tight. Hold the spool steady as you try to turn the knob off. Or...there is simply a "nut" to take off. But for the most part the newer wacker spools usually just "push in and turn/twist" out. Simple. to reinstall it or replace it with a new one simply push and twist it the opposite removal direction. FYI most lines can be manually "rewound/refilled" by yourself and reused over and over until they really wear out. There are little tricks to doing a rewinding but it isn't anywhere near difficult to do...or learn. Usually the price of a replacement spool is 5 times the cost of rewinding them yourself. Comon its easy! If ya want I'll help ya thru it.

How do I change the string on a wheeled weedeater brand trimmer


Purchase precut pieces of string. Check the dealer or or big box store for the correct part. The precut string is easily clipped in. Remove the old piece by pushing back and lifting up on the piece until it comes loose. Put the new piece in the slot and pull it forward to seat it. Repeat for the other side(s)

I have a craftsman 32cc weedwhacker trimmer and its brand new and it hasnt started from day one it isnt getting any spark at all


If you have spark problems, remove the wire and then remove the plug, reattach the wire and ground the plug to the engine and pull the string, you should see arc and hear it pop, if not, take the plug to another piece of equipment and remove that equipment's plug wire and attach it to the plug from the weed ******* and then ground it and test it. If still no spark, then plug bad, if plug then the weed ******* has a problem with the spark plug wire or the ignition coil.

If you have spark at first test, then the problem with the weed ******* is somewhere else.
