Question about Black & Decker String Trimmer Cordless 12" 18V
The automatic feed for the trimmer line is no longer working. I have replaced the trimmer spool with a new B & D spool ( I was replacing my own line) but the auto feed still does not work. Please advise. Thanks
How do you replace the white lever, and how do you know if it is broken?

I had this problem too, but it had nothing to do with the white lever. I finally found the solution in a clue about the line. Black & Decker line on the pre-wound spools is silicone lubricated. I tried spraying my line with WD-40, but that didn't help.
Here's what works: Talcum powder.
You can get it anywhere, usually labeled as baby powder, but make sure that it is talc, not corn starch baby powder.
I spread the sides of the bulk spool enough to shake the power in, maybe two teaspoons or less around the coiled line, then put it in a zipper plastic bag and shook ti to thoroughly coat the line.
Before loading the B&D spool, I rubbed a little more talc inside it, then wound the line.
It worked flawlessly!

Yes! the previous answer is the correct one! I had generic silicone spray which did the job quite nicely.
