• Turn off the trimmer and remove the battery
• Press the release tabs on the line spool cover and remove the cover by pulling it straight off. replacement spool is AF-100
• Lift the spool of nylon line out of the hub and clear any broken line and debris
• In case of jams and tangled line unwrap about one foot (30cm) of line to ensure that it is undamaged. If it is OK rewind it and insert the line end through the eyelet in the spool hub.
• Pull the line through the hole to maintain tension while placing the
spool down into the hub with the notched side exposed.
• Press the spool down GENTLY and rotate it until you feel it drop into place. (When in place, the spool will turn a few degrees left and right freely.)
• Snap the spool cover back on.

You can buuy spools already wound with string or restring the spool you have. When you look at the head you should see two orange buttons, press them and lift the cover off the spool sits inside. Replace with a new one or restrung one running the end out the hole. Replace cover and you are ready to go.

Go to home depot. look at the floor model and the replacement spools they sell there. Reverse engineer the stringing process or but a pre-loaded spool.
Otherwise,
1. Squeeze the tabs on the side of the head of the unit to remove the spool cover.
2. remove spool.
3. place end of string in small hole in center ring of spool.
4. wide spool with string in the direction of the arrows printed on the spool. DO NOT OVERLOAD!.

Step by Step spool filling on my NEW Black & Decker GH700


Check the bottom of the spool. See the pattern that looks like a circular saw blade. Ensure that the raised edges, do not have any broken/missing sections. Also, check that the pivot lever in the cap, moves freely and engages the space between the same, saw-blade-like edges in the spool correctly. If there are broken/missing sections of the spool, replace the spool with a good one.

Replacing the string on trimmer


I don't think you have to get the housing off for replacing the spool purpose. Usually, take the spool cover first, and then you will be able to take the spool out of spool housing.
