These are usually turned by a shaft or cable. Remove the head and make sure that it is not disconnected .

    The Belt may be worn or frayed; replace it. See your Owner's Manual for instructions on replacing the Belt. Check for proper alignment of the V-Belt and verify Belt Guide Positions.If the Trimmer Head still will not spin, follow the try adjusting the Belt Tension through the Trimmer Control Cable

How to change heads on stihl fs 81?


There should be a hole in the gear box for a pin. Insert something in that hole to hold the shaft from turning and unscrew the head. I believe it is reverse thread

Stihl fs55rc rotor spring


Determine which direction it needs to go to pull the cord out of the hole and COMPRESS the spring. put the tab on the tail end into the housing, and put the white spool in the inner end of the spring. rotate the spool while keeping your finger on the spring to hold it onto the spool. Once it's sufficiently wound enough to fit back into the housing, insert it and reinstall the washer and clip.

Stihl fs55rc crab problem willnot run full power


You probably need to adjust your carburetor. You can slowly turn the jet closest to the air filter in 1/8 turn increments while at full throttle and check the response. Ear protection is necessary to be able to distinguish the RPMs from the audio pitch of the running engine.

Stihl FS 44 weedeater/trimmer and I can't get the head off to repair/replace broken plastic pieces. The line spool is off but I need to remove the head itself and I can't find the manual


Hi, there is a hole down through the top of the gear head. Place a pin punch or small screw driver down through the hole and rotate the head until it locks. Then grasp the head firmly and undo it (left hand thread). Hope this helps, regards Phil.
