Question about Black & Decker String Trimmer Cordless 12" 18V

Open Question

Black and decker string trimmer GL530 runs hot and does little cutting then slows down. Can't seem to disassemble it either. I would like to take it apart and oil it and take any debris out so the motor can run freely but I do not know how to take the head of and how to take it apart. I've looked online but cannot find anything.

The same thing happened to me. You either have a ruined belt pulley, or, hopefully, the belt burned out. Belts are easy to find online, but the housing is tricky to remove - see other posts.

I finally got it the plastic housing apart on my trimmer (there is one screw hidden under the label), only to find a total meltdown. The plastic pulley is ruined, and the only way to get it replaced is to buy a new motor (the most expensive part).

If your trimmer is no longer under warranty, then you can get a refurbished gh1000 for the price a new motor unit.

SOURCE: B & D auto feed string trimmer won't advance string

Is the string spool seated on the rachet correctly? If so and all is well, it is worth noting that these trimmers auto feed fuunction is problematic at best, requiring manually unwinding some line every few minutes as the unit gets older.

I had the same problem, there is another screw hidden under the black sticker. If you feel around, there is a soft spot. That's it.

Black decker problem


This could be a lot of things. One thing to check is the vents on the head. IF they are clogged then it over heats. Another thing is the battery connections and temperature. When it fails take the battery out if you can and see if it is hot.

It looks like its working fine, but it doesn't cut the grass. Looks like the string is spinning with the turn instead of against it, if that makes any sense.


If the string is spinning it should cut no mater which way it is turning. maybe you aren't getting the trimmer close enough to the grass.

String will not advance on black and decker grass hog electric trimmer


Did you re-string it? If you did it is possible that you crossed the string over itself and it is stuck. Check that and good luck...Lee

I need directions to replace string on black and decker cordless 18v grasshog


Go to home depot. look at the floor model and the replacement spools they sell there. Reverse engineer the stringing process or but a pre-loaded spool.
Otherwise,
1. Squeeze the tabs on the side of the head of the unit to remove the spool cover.
2. remove spool.
3. place end of string in small hole in center ring of spool.
4. wide spool with string in the direction of the arrows printed on the spool. DO NOT OVERLOAD!.
5. snap string into notch on spool and cut string leaving 6" exposed.
6. thread 6" of string through hole in side of unit head, replace spool, and replace cover.
7. go cut grass.
