Bumping the string head lightly on the ground will release more trimmer line if the line was loaded properly and spooled in the correct direction. If the line was loaded wrong, doing this procedure won't help. Make sure your line was loaded correctly. Do this bump as the engine is slowing down or running slow. Most all gas trimmers work this way, but some of the electric ones have automatic line feed and no bumping is necessary.

Cut line the proper lengh feed thru until both sides are equal start trimming and the line will not feed


You are describing a problem that could be related to the line being too big for your trimmer. It should say what size trimmer line to use in your manual. It may even say on the piece that the line winds around; but you have to look very close

If your line is .080 it may be too big. You should probably use .065

Spool does not release line when tapped


You do not need to bump the head to advance the line. The machine has automatic line feed. If the line will not advance, then there is a problem with the line spool, possibly a tangle inside on it. Here is your instruction manual.

I have a Ryobi BC 30 trimmer. It runs fine but


Are you using the proper size line? Check the ends of the spool. It will give you the size you need. Also while you are checking, locate the arrow that shows the direction to wind the line. Hope this is of some help...Lee

Lawn trimmer line


This is a common problem. Make sure you are using the manufacturer's recommended line. When winding the line, try to coil it in nice even rows. This helps me to get a better feed. Good Luck!

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.
