Black and decker trimmer line feed problems

I have a Black and Decker Model GH700/GH750 Trimmer/edger. I ran out of line. I put .65 inch line in but it now feeds out too much line. What is the trick to get this thing to work?

SOURCE: Black and Decker 16 in Hedge Trimmer

I use a dremel with a sharpening stone, if u don't have one you can also use a power drill with a small sanding disk (1 inch) and course sand paper (30 or 40 grit). or you can use a bastard file. its too tight to use any kind of angle guide so just take your time and do it by eye. it shouldn't take much to get them sharp enough to do the job, over-sharpening is unnecessary and dangerous, and will make the blades dull faster. sharpen all the free blades, top and bottom, then start the trimmers to advance the blades to free up the sides you couldn't get. i use a light penetrating oil to clean the blades first, then lithium grease spray to lubricate.

SOURCE: auto feed will not work

It's cheapest to buy a new one. I had that problem last year.

You may have a piece of metal between the moving blade and the stationary one. Also the motor may have been at the top of the stroke when it stopped. You may be able to "force" the blade to move a little. This may free it enough to work.

Gh700 grasshog trimmer - round plastic gear drive broke in half - can I get a replacement or even a metal gear?


Same problem; GH700 with a stripped gear, inside the casing.
I wish places with replacement parts sell uncommonly broken pieces... I didn't have an account for commenting a request in that site.
If someone asked them, it could be available in a matter of time.

I have a nearly-new 14"


These machines, unfortunately, are now considered disposable consumer items by the industry. One should expect a couple of years of good service from them and that is about it. Your problem is of course, the drive belt. Black and Decker does not list a replacement belt in the parts available for your model.

This big lawn tool parts company does not list internal parts either; only external. Sorry.

The auto feed on the grasshogs don't work


Replace the line with a star-shaped .065" line (I use Rino-Tuff from Home Depot online). I have the GH700 (2 line) model and it fixed the problem for me. Other people have fixed the problem with different shaped lines - apparently there is one at Walmart that works well on electric trimmers. Just don't use the smooth round line. I tried the manual advice and it was bunk.

I have bleck and decker grass hog auto feed and it does not work


There is a smalll white part below the spool called a "lever". This is likely in need of replacement. Call Black and Decker at 800-544-6986 with your Model No, and Date Code (stamped on the trimmer itself near where the extension cord plugs in). If it is still under warranty they will send you the replacement part - if not, I loooked it up and it's less than $3 for the part itself.
