Question about Worx GT WG150 10 in. 18 Volt Cordless String Trimmer w/ 1 battery

Possible Line-Feed Problem

I have a WORX 2 in 1 GrassTrimmer/Edger WG150. What are the notches in the top of the spool used for? Do I have to put the wire through them in order to have a proper continous feed? Also, is there a certain way in which the wire must be wound on the spool so that the line feeds correctly? It seems like the wire isn't feeding automatically.
Can you help out on this? I would appreciate it.

The notches are there to hold the line in place while you place the spool back on the trimmer. If you look at the spool, you will find, on one end or the other, an arrow showing direction to wind the string. Follow the direction and when you get the spool full, place it into the notch. Leave about 6" sticking out and cut it off. If you have a two string spool, just wind the other string as you have done the first. When you have both spools full and the ends in the notches, place the spool on the trimmer. As you start the spool on, place the string (or strings) in the respective holes. As you seat the spool pull the string that is the farthest in until it comes out of the notch. Do the same with the other string. Seat the spool and try your handiwork. Good luck...Lee

Need instructions on changing the spool on electric grass trimmer/edger

Turn the trimmer over, I put it in my lap.Remove the orange spool cap by squeezing with thumb & forefinger. It will come right off. Remove & discard(there has got to be something they can be recycled as?) If you are right handed, hold the new spool firmly with left hand with flat side with the arrows up, keep a firm grasp & use small needle nosed pliers(I use hemostats) etc. to free the loose end of the line where it is looped thru the 2 slots. Keeping hold of the spool so it doesn't all unwind, let enough out to feed thru the hole on the side of the compartment where the old spool was. 2-3" will be enough. Then, place the spool into it's compartment with the flat arrow side up.Keep a good grip on the spool until you get it into place. Replace the spool cap by aligning it in the 2 slots that it came from & gently squeezing again until it locks into place & you are set to go. Don't worry about feeding the line out to proper length, it will do that all by it's self.

My worx trimmer line does not feed

According to the manual it only advances 1/2" so if 4" break off, you have to start/stop 8 times.

The line keeps unwinding! The Worx trimmer seems to unwind the line when ever it decides too! What is the problem?


The spool can be defective, but it may be just affected by trash in the spool where it mounts to the machine. Look at this tip. There is a place at the end of it that explains how to clean and lubricate the spool. If you cannot fix the problem with this tip, replacement is probably your best option. Try it first.

Best regards, --W/D--

How to restring my weedeater. it's a poulan pro 25cc.

Pull the spool straight off of the machine. There are arrows on the bottom of the spool indicating the winding direction. Also, there are holes in the spool. Place the line in the hole just enough to hold it while you are winding the line. Not too far, say 1/8".
Wind the outer spool first, and put the end in the notch when the spool is full. Leave about a 6" tail and cut the line. Now wind the inner spool, and place the line in the notch that is 180 degrees from the first line's notch. Leave about a 6" tail, and cut this line off. Now, turn the spool toward the machine. While holding the spool, thread both tails of line through the grommets on the machine head, and work the spool onto the head. The tails should feed out the grommets as you do this. Seat the spool, you'll feel it click into place. Tug on the ends of the line to pull the line out of the notches. You're done!

How Does the line feed?

The line must have been rolled in the wrong direction, I guess it is an ordinary "tap and go" solution. Maybe it is possible to install the line roll upside down? It could be a good idea to double-check.

Good luck!
