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.

SOURCE: How do I feed string into my Homelite Mighty Lite

cut a 6 ft piece and wind it (starting with the middle of the trim line) around the head with each head going opposite directions. When you get it wound up, you will have two pieces sticking out in opposite directions and they can be clipped into the small plastic slots on the edge of the string canister. THen press the ball on, and attach to the trimmer.. Just keep the string the grooves and you will be fine...


OHYEAH!!! dont worry if it keeps coming unwound or pops off the trimmer at first, it will happen until you develop the technique needed for a quick replacement


GOOD LUCK AND PLS RATE THIS POST!!!!!!

Need new bump head or full bump and feed unit


You can find some string heads and string head parts for your machine at Home Depot. They have a universal type head and heads made especially for Ryobis and Homelites (I think). Otherwise, several online vendors sell parts for your machine (but you have to pay shipping).

Once you have the string wound onto the spool, place the spool onto the shaft and pull the strings out of the slots so that the string feeds through the holes without going through the slots. Good luck...Lee

Homelite trimmer, gas, string - y is the string wrapping itself around the head of the trimmer?


The line on my new 26cc Homelite would also feed out by itself. That started me thinking the line was wound backwards. I wrapped the line in the opposite direction as was shown on the bump feed reel and now the dang thing works although the bump feed needs to be "bumped" pretty hard to work. Is it possible that the reel was manufactured with the (string direction) arrows pointing the wrong direction? The new 26cc unit is also underpowered compared to my older 25cc trimmer.

Homelite st-175g trimmer


This is for a duel line trimmer. I hope this will help.

Cut two separate pieces of string, about 7 ft. each.

Stick the end of the line in the hole on the inside of spool.

Wind clockwise onto spool, putting the line that is closest to the ground on first.

Once you have winded this piece on, lock the last 4 inches of line through the slits on spool.

Repeat process for second piece of line, locking the last 4 inches in slot opposite the other locked in piece.

Put the spool on the trimmer, feeding the end of lines through either hole on trimmer.

Before you push the spool all the way on, pull the strings out of the locked position. Put cap on and GO CRAZY!

Homelite curved shaft timmer line problem


So, is this trimmer suppose to feed the string automatically? If not, then it sounds like the string is wound up on the spool the wrong direction.
