Is it old line? If so it could be brittle. Buy some new line

Just bought a TE475. can't figure out how to replace the line compared to the traditional one-line configuration I am used to


Here is the info from the manual, the replacement line is put in near the center of the spool on the top of it, you simply feed it in. I have included a link to the manual so you can see the pictures. Look at page 10 for these instructions.

The string on my grasshog xp gh1000 4, feeds out within 5 mins. What am I doing wrong when I add new string?


Hello, W/D here.

Read all the way through this, with the spool in your hand, before you re-wind the spools. It will make much more sense!

Pull the spool off of the trimmer.
Look on the bottom of the spool. The decimal numbers next to the notches on the edge is your line size (e g. .080). If there are 4 notches, there will be different decimal numbers, indicating that your trimmer can take different line sizes.
Also on the bottom will be arrows, indicating the direction that you will need to wind the line.
Looking at the spool, you'll notice that it is actually 2 spools, and the divider between them has a slot in it. (This will be important in a minute). The section of the spool closest to the bump head is the outer spool, and the spool closest to the machine, with the flat side, is the inner spool.
Insert the proper sized line into the hole in the inner spool core about 1/8", and wind in the direction indicated by the arrows, until the line is just about even with the divider between the two spools, then place the line in the notch that is 180 degrees (on the other side of the spool) from the slot in the divider. When the line is in the notch securely, leave about a 6" tail beyond that, and snip the line.
Wind the outer spool in the same manner, but this time, the line will go into the slot in the divider, then into the notch, and also get a 6" tail.
Feed the tails into the grommets in the trimmer head, square them up, notches to grommets, and snap the spool in.
Push the spool in like you were bumping it to the ground (this frees up the advance for the spool).
Grab the two tails, and give a tug. The line will pull out of the notches and advance about 1".
It's a good idea to clean out the hole where tha spool fits onto the trimmer from time to time, and also to put some graphite dust in the hole every 8-10 times you re-wind the spools, just to keep the mechanism working freely.

Best regards, --W/D--

Black&decker GH 1000 trimmer. The line breaks when spool is full


Try using a thicker line when using the thinner line it is good only for grass if you should hit fence or concrete it will eat it up and you will be pulling it out every 5 minites or less.

Don't know how to rethread the line


Breaking off is a normal process. Set the centre of your line in the spool and wind the two strands in to the Spool, thread and re assemble. C
