Instructions can be found at:

If the line keeps getting too long, it's because swivel 14 in diagram 7 was in the wrong position when you inserted the spool - just move it to the ouside position, re-insert the spool and away you go. Frankie.

My Black & Decker Reflex Strimmer GL570 does notautomatically feed out the line.

disassemble the string part and clean it,,, it is common for them to get gluped up and not feed. All so make sure you have it wound the right way.

Threading line on black & decker GL301 strimmer

Do you mean that the string keeps feeding as you try to operate the trimmer?

If so, you are winding the string on the spool the wrong way. Put the string on the spool in a clockwise direction. This should do it.
