If the engine seems to be running properly, you may have something that is binding the head or shaft. Check those places and see if that helps. Good luck...Lee

I have an echo gt 2000 weed eater. I was using it the other day and it was working great and all of a sudden the trimmer head would not spin. What could it be?


one of two things has happened. 1 the trimmer head has melted where it gets driven by the shaft and needs to be replaced or 2 you have a fault in the drive line

I have an Echo SRM 225 and the trimmer head just throws the line . After bumping it it will not cut the line with the knife on the guard -it just keeps slapping the guard and the knife until all of the...


You are winding the line in the wrong direction. It should be wound on the spool in the opposite direction of the spin of the head during operation.

Good Luck!

Could you please explain how I change from the nylon line trimming head to the metal cutting blade on my Echo brush cutter model SRM-22GES? Thanks for your help.


To change the head on the trimmer you will need to turn the trimmer upside down as if you were going to take the head off to restring it, spin the head and look for a slot in the side of the head when you see the slot, keep spinning until you see it line up with a hole in the metal piece the head attaches to. Stick a nail in the slot and hole and turn the head off the trimmer, if I remember correctly the head is backward thread.
Follow the steps backward for putting the brush blade head on the trimmer.

I need to replace the whole trimmer head and I dont know how to get the gear case off so I can put the new one on. Can anyone help?


To replace the trimmer head you don't need to replace the gear case. If you look closely about a 1/4 inch up from the safety guard you'll see a hole in the side of the "gearcase" assemby. (you may have to clean the old dead grass clippings off to see it) You can shove a rod into the hole that will stop the head from spinning freely and I believe you spin the head clock wise (reverse threads) to remove the head.
