Question about Troy-Bilt 4-Cycle Curve Shaft Gas String Trimmer #41ADT41C966

2 Answers

The bump knob on my tb70ss model troy built weed eater came off and the heat build up and centrifical force caused the spool to melt and become distorted. I replaced both plus the inner reel but it occurred again after the fourth time I used it with the new parts, What is causing the bump knob to come off and is there a repair manual for this model?

Check gear head for grease and i have turned a lot of customers onto a speed-feed head i have had great feed back on them. They have 2 different heads but will fit almost all trimmers. One fits curved shaft and the other fits only straight shafts. You can google www.speed-feed.com look at video and how much it will help in respooling the head. I use it personally as well.

SOURCE: troy built weed eater won't feed line

Check the size of the line,(OD), make sure you are using the correct size, sometimes cheap line will be problematic, also, you said you are re-stringing it, try a new batch of string, the old string inside the hub can get chaffed and will stick to itself...

SOURCE: Screw cap to reel head of ryobi ss30 weed eater will not come off

hey! I just had the same thing happen to me 30mins ago. I tried prying it off with a screw driver and punching it out.No such luck. Frustrated, I tried turning the spool from the base and it popped right out and I was able to easily disassemble.

SOURCE: lost manual for troy bilt weed eater mod#tb514cs 4cycle

I didn't find that exact one either, but recently had to work on my Yard Man 4-Cycle Straight Shaft and used a Troy-Bilt manual for a similar trimmer - worked great.
If you don't find yours at this site, maybe a similar one will work. It looks like the difference is the TB525 receives attachments. If you're trying to fix something right now, here's the manual for that one until you find yours:

SOURCE: How do you add trimmer line to Troy Bilt TB539E

This model trimmer uses .095" diameter line, your local home improvement store will carry replacement line and it will also carry a replacement spool with the line already spooled on it.

This trimmer is a "bump advance" trimmer meaning you bump the head on the ground while it is spinning to advance line out.

What to do to replace the line is place the trimmer on a stable flat surface (like a workbench), raise up the head if the trimmer and unscrew the cap and CAREFULLY remove the spool...you do not want to lose the spring! Take a look at the spool, it will show the direction to spool the line, spool the line then replace the spool by first putting the spring back on the shaft, then put the end of the line through the hole(s) on the side of the outer head, press the spool in place and screw the cap back on.

Of course you can eliminate about 90% of the headaches by buying a pre-spooled head at your local home improvement store...then you follow the directions above and can skip the spooling part. Cheers!

STRING KEEPS BREAKING ON A TROY BILT WEED EATER TB539E


Take a look at the hole in the spool where the business end of the string comes through. There should be a smooth metal grommet or smooth short tube there. If the metal is missing, then the string is breaking because it rubs against plastic and heats up very quickly. Or the tube or grommet might have a rough or sharp spot. You might be able to polish it up with a Dremmel type of tool.
