UNscrew the cetral screw with a flatheaded screwdriver, then put the flate blade of the screwdriver in through the side slot where the cap clips in, and gently pry up on the spool from underneath it.

    Hi, actually, you don't even have to unscrew the central screw! Just gently pry up on the lower spool edge.

    Nice. Great tip! Thank you.

    Thank you, thank you. It took me two days, and then after finding your comments it took me less than 5 minutes.

    Just be sure to pull the spool straight out -- shouldn't require turning at all, and it may take a bit of a pull to get it off, dependingg on how dirty it is.

    Actually, we struggle every time so I've finally documented it (instructions aren't clear from B&D). Once you've removed the orange spool cover, you should be able to just place your fingers in the indents on the top of the spool and just pull (it may take a bit of envergy) straight out to remove the spool. No need to turn at all, since turning should ONLY be for when you replace the spool back in the trimmer housing (til it clicks in place). It's simply pull straight out - that's it!

The line on the B & D Electric Weed Eater has broken off. I can take the Orange cover off, but I do not know how to get the spool so I can continue weed eating.


Not avoiding the answer but if you google (" re-string a weed wacker video?" ), you can watch a video of how to do it, which may be a lot easier to understand when you see it.

I need to know how to re-string my black & decker weed eater


Here is the instruction manual direct from Black & Decker for the GH1000 XP model. You may or may not have the twin string head, but all instruction manuals are available from their site. As close as I can figure, this pertains to your model.

GH1000 Motor runs but spool just quit working.this is electric.


Same thing happened to me. The belt broke. You'll need to take off all the screws to change the belt. There's a hidden screw under the black label. Feel around for the soft spot.

I am trying to spool trimming line into my black and decker GH1000. It is supposed to feed automatically. It is not. I'm afraid I fed the line onto the spool incorrectly. Need help


Yes, it does feed automatically.
Please make sure the trimming line spooled in your spool regularly.

If above does not work, please go to service center to change a lever inside spool housing.

Double spool on Weed Wacker


This isn't a solution to the problem. However, I think you should talk to someone at Home Depot or Lowes or wherever you bought the model, and see if the string is in there correctly; if it is, then u'r weed wacker must have some other mechanical problem. Sometimes it is just best to buy a new one. The more expensive models are the best.

The last time I used the weed wacker it kept stopping-almost like a short. The battery is fully charged and has a lot of power when working. Would the problem be in the handle and can that be taken apart to see if there is a loose wire?
