The Troy Bilt spool should be able to be removed by pressing it down and twisting it.

I am trying to remove the outer spool assembly. How do I do it?


What does it say in the user manual? Or possibly you don't have one and haven't gone online to get one.

Anyway, most of these spools are removed by pushing two lugs together while pulling the spool away from the housing. Replacement is by just positioning the spool and pushing it into the housing until it clicks into place.

Weedeater repair


Its possible that the drive shaft is broken or the end of the shaft is worn where it hooks into the gear head. The trimmer head has a hex fitting that meshes with the gear assembly in order for it to turn, its possible the hex is worn on the cutting head from usage, which would require replacing the outer spool assembly. Here is a link to a parts breakdown. http://www.partstree.com/parts/?lc=troy_bilt&mn=TB70SS+41ADT70C711&dn=769014720002

The string on my Troybilt tb70ss just keeps coming out of the spool when I try to weedeat. I am pretty sure I have followed the directions. What is the problem?


there should be a small hole to put string in on center of spool.
you might be winding the line the wrong way around try winding line in other direction.

Cannot get the housing off so that I can change the pull cord on my troy bilt tb70ss grass trimmer


If you are holding the unit where the drive cable goes in, there is a screw in there. It is a #15 or 20 TORX screwdriver. Take out the screw and it will allow you to get to the starting spool. Good luck...Lee

The spool came unscrewed from the shaft - we can't


It's probably a left-hand thread, turn it counter-clockwise to tighten.

My weed eater wont start.


One of the problem could be is you have one of the line in this case top line in the carburator clog. For clean the carburator You need to remove first the cover for the filter 2 screws on front of the carburator remove lines mark the lines top and bottom remove slowly the carburator be careful with the gasket. The carburator have 4 little screws removed and remove the black gasket (diaphragm) clean with carburator cleaner and air, blow air thru the top line tube, now on the otherside remove the screw and clean the gasket and the carburator inside do the same step. Make sure you clean the fuel filter inside the tank with carburator cleaner.

Starter pull cord


take a light and look into the clutch hole
you will either need a torx or star type nut driver or a allen or hex head nut driver to fit in the hole and turn the screw ccw while holding the flywheel.
Make note where all comes off and all goes back in reverse when fixed.also after you remove the clutch housing you will be stareing at the clutch shoes next and it will have markings on which way to turn it for removal.
