The flexible drive shaft broke near the bottom. I have removed it from the motor end and pulled out whats left of the shaft, but cannot figure out how to get to the broken end so that the flex shaft can be replaced. How do I remove it at the string end

I believe what you need to do is remove the 3 screws on the trimmer head to remove the head from the lower shaft. After the head is off you can look down into where the shaft goes and be able to use some needlenose pliers or something of the sort to pull the broken part out.<!-- from fixya rte -->

Ryobi trimmer Rlt30CES head slow down under revs


Sounds like a drive shaft/clutch type problem, I do not know the machine but suspect it uses a flexible shaft to the head has this union worn out or at the motor end there would be some kind of clutch which would leave the motor spinning on tick over (not the head) then engage on rev up. Perhaps this is faulty or has oil on it, could be its flexible shaft has got a worn end.

On my old B&D it throws a sprung disc out under centrifugal force to engage with its drive shaft coupler which at low revs the springs "win" to disengage it.

Its head end is easier first to check by removal of its line holder after that things are more complex with mine four screws remove what I call its nose cone to get into the clutch area.

If there is a wear issue run it at a gentle speed dabbing its head into some grass you may find the motor spins on but its head stops which will confirm the above.

Hope this helps..........

Mine's a bent shaft. I guess only Victa agents can replace/repair the centrifugal clutch or internal broken cable?


not necessarily--- the broken drive cable can be removed /replaced by removing the trimmer head from the shaft at the bottom
undo the clamp and if there is a small screw/ bolt into the shaft undo that as well and pull the head off
the flexible drive cable will slip out
check the ends and they should be square in form
Mostly the cable breaks but occasionally that square section will wear round
slip in a new cable and reassemble

Belt replace panasonic vac


Is it an upright? On mine it's very simple.
Unplug vacuum and lay it on floor so that you are looking at the rotating brush. Remove screws that attach the cowling. Remove the cowling. You will then see the rotating brush ends. One end will have the belt, or what's left of on the brush wheel. You will also see the motor shaft. The belt goes between the shaft and the brush wheel. Carefully remove the brush by holding both ends and pulling straight out. Place the new belt on the brush wheel and replace the brush. With the belt on the brush wheel, stretch it to fit on the motor shaft. Rotate the brush to make sure the belt is riding correctly at both ends. Replace cowling and screws.

This sounds like the flexible drive shaft inside of the main shaft has a stripped ferrule. In order for you to fix this, you will have to take the main shaft off of the motor housing and pull the flexible shaft out of the inside. The replacement part number is 530056570 and should be about $12 to replace. Call the number on the unit to order replacement parts or go to your local sears.

Prosedure on how to fix if the uper flex rod goes out it does not spin when motor running


The problem with your upper drive shaft may be clutch related. Here is how to get to the clutch to inspect it and the clutch drum that drives the flexible drive shaft.
Remove the tube that holds the flex-drive shaft from the front of the motor cover.Remove the rear engine cover. Remove the throttle cable from the carburetor. Mark and unplug any wires for the on/off switch that go to the ignition coil (underneath front cover) if possible. Now if you have pulled the driveshaft tube out of the way, the clutch drum is up next.It should have some play in it, but not a lot. See if it spins freely. Inside it, screwed into the very end of the engine's crankshaft is a Torx #25 screw. Before you loosen it, you will have to lock up the engine. To do so, remove the spark plug. Pull on the starter until the piston is down, then insert a length of clean, soft rope into the engine. The engine will come up and compress the rope, thus locking it in place to allow clutch drum and clutch removal. Loosen the T-25 screw inside the drum.. You may be able to remove it with a long thin-blade screwdriver also.It probably won't come completely out...it is made this way. If you get the drum off, inspect the clutch. The clutch pads should be uniform with no nicks, cuts or scorch marks. Check the plastic housing on the tube. It should not have score marks either. Next, if needed, remove the clutch. It is screwed onto a small threaded section of the crankshaft Removal is counterclockwise.. It will be pretty tight. To help, apply peneterating oil. Whack the ears of the clutch near the center with a dull flat-blade chisel and hammer unless there are bolts. then use wrench. It will turn counterclockwise for removal and there will probably be a removal direction arrow on it's face, Use some lithium based grease to lubricate the upper and lower flexible drive shafts. Post back if needed.

At the motor drive end, (where the engine is).. the end of the flex drive should mate with the clutch housing. You may just need to remove the clutch-housing cover in front of the motor to access it and turn it until it accepts the flex drive.
