If the line keeps getting too long, it's because swivel 14 in diagram 7 was in the wrong position when you inserted the spool - just move it to the ouside position, re-insert the spool and away you go. Frankie.

SOURCE: Black & Decker gh1000 trimmer head not spinning

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.

It sounds like that the automatic line release is damaged.

1. Remove and clean all debris from the head. I assume that you have already done this if you have changed the line a few times, but just make sure.

2. Remove the the head from the shaft.

3. There should be a large spring in there. If its broken, damaged or missing that will allow the head to spool line pretty fast. again make sure all debris is removed from this area.

4. Check the feed dogs in the same area as the spring. If they are worn the same problem will occur.

5. Install line on the spool.Make sure that it is wound the proper direction. There should be arrows indicating this. The line wound in reverse will also cause the same problem as well.

6. Put it all back together and see if works now.

7. If this doesn't solve it you may need to replace the head assembly.

Good luck!

CST2000 can't get the battery off when pushing the two release buttons.


Black & Decker didn't make it easy to remove the battery pack. You have to push both buttons in at the same time, while pushing the battery pack forward. It takes a little while to get good at it -- you have to hold onto the trimmer with the same hand that's pushing the buttons in, while pushing the head forward with the other hand.

If you're only taking the head off to charge the battery, you can charge it while it's still attached. The hole for the adapter is on the back of the head, so you can plug it in while it's attached to the trimmer.

Hope that helps!

St1000/type 1 grass/weed trimmer - How do I remove the head?


Yes, there should be a lock hole on the base of the bump head, spin around until both holes align and stick a pin through them both and the base will be locked.
Now spin the head off.
The new one will come with adapters if you need them.
