Putting on another spool, do I thread the line through the hole in the side?

I feel that the END of your trimmer line should exit THROUGH the hole in the side. That hole should have a small metal grommet to alleviate wear on the plastic head unit as the string flies.
So string your line onto the spool and when you are done, run the END of the line through the hole in the side.

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 have a Talon electric line trimmer AT2307A. When I press the start button, the bottom attachment with the nylon line does not spin even though the motor is running.

Halfway down the shaft of the line trimmer, you can detach the line trimmer attachment ( this in so you can fit a lawn edger attachment if need be). Unclip the line trimmer at that halfway point and the start the motor and see if that rod inside the shaft is spining, if so, reattach the line trimmer attachment and see if the nylon line spins, if so, it wasnt attached correctly, if not, then there a break in the flexible rod going to the trimmer head, most likely at the bend.

Talon harrier mach 25 trimmer sn 000461 petrol flow problem will not start ?

Start at the fuel tank. Check the condition of the fuel filter, the fuel line inside the tank. Then check all fuel lines for brittleness and cracks. Then check the condition of the primer bulb. Last, but not least, remove the cover on the carburetor without the vent-hole in it and inside should be a very small circular fine-mesh screen. Make sure the screen is clean; if not, clean it.

Line trimmer not starting

The primer button may have a hole in it due to drying out. The little plastic bubble may not be priming the carburator prior to start. Leave on full choke and pull several times if still no start check for fresh and correct fuel/oil mixture if required. I am assuming this trimmer is not electric. If trimmer still fails to start or starts and runs for a moment and shuts off replace the primer button, the carb. is sucking too much air.
