You should be able to remove the bump knob and then the inner spool. To keep the shaft from turning, try to grasp the dust cover with some vise grips or large adjustable pliars to hold it and just remove the knob. Spray penetrating oil under it if necessary and let it soak a couple hours to remove rust and corrosion and try it again. If there are any holes above the head in the dust cover or arbor, try to insert something in there to lock it up, like a slender scredriver. Here are the line spool removal instructions. See pages 14 and 15 in this manual.

Ryobi grass scorpion rct2800a head keeps coming off. Is there a screw or bolt to hold the head in the housing?


I see the spool shaft on the spool and not the drive cable. ALL my trimmers were designed for the line spool to come off the shaft (usually by removing the plastic bump feed nut). Your drive shaft appears to have a groove in it about 3/4 toward the top. I surmise that notch is where a broken/missing set screw or "c" clip would most likely hold the shaft to the drive cable. If you find it to be true, a factory part would not ne needed to find a replacement part to lock the shaft and drive cable.

Which way should the line be fed clock or counter clockwise. Spins clockwise.


I,m no expert but you could try feeding it the oppisite way it spins. so i would say counter clockwise. if not it,s 50/50 it must be the other way

The head stops going round, it sems to me that the drive shaft has become disconnected, can it be repaired by myself.


You need to take the drive shaft tube off the power head and see if it is broken. If the machine has the split boom, then you will need to inspect both. Just turn the end of the drive on one end, and see if the other end turns with it. If it is a one piece drive shaft, then, remove the boom from the front engine cover and turn it, noting if the string head turns too. You can fix this yourself.

How do I remove the cutting head on my homelite HLT=15


http://www.ereplacementparts.com/homelite-hlt15-ut20602-string-trimmer-parts-c-18807_20299_21185.html

Here is a diagram of it. It is reverse threaded so you have to turn it like you was tightening it to loosen it. Clockwise looking at it from the bottom of the head. But there is a clutch that will let the whole thing turne. The best way is to remove the shaft from the weedeater and hold the shaft with some vice grips. Or you may be able to hold it right above the head, before the shaft tube.

Weedeater starts fine but the string head will not spin. I removed the string head, and the shaft it connects to is not spinning either.


The shaft cable has either come loose at the head, or is broken at the engine most likely. Is this a 2 piece unit? If so, see if the cable turns with the grass trimmer section removed. If so, it is usually easiest to just replace the trimmer shaft section. One piece units require disassembly at the engine, and if you are not mechanically inclined, that can be a pain.

Ryobi Reeleasy line trimmer head PROBLEM


sounds like the clip isn't engaging properly. For a bump and feed they have steps that lock when enough cord is set out. If the head is not locked when its on it will recoil in. Try to make sure its not sitting wrong.

How do u remove the bump feed spool from the bump feed string head on my ryobi gas trimmer


Grasp the outer portion of the cutting head in your left hand and turn the inner knob with your right. Depending on model, some bump knobs are threaded and some are post and notch. Use a little spray like wd40 to loosen the mechanism. It may take a firm hand, but the two will separate so that you can reload the line. Consider reloading with the .095 five sided line. It cuts much easier than the round line.

Can not remove spool to replace string


If it's like my Ryobi, the alignment arrows are for feeding in string, not removing the spool. When aligned with the arrows, you should be able to insert two pieces of line into opposite sides of the housing. The ends of the line will come out of the spool next to a tiny hole. Put the end of each of the two lines into the holes, then pull the two lines from the outside. This will lock the ends of the line into the tiny holes in the housing. Now you can turn the housing by hand to wind the lines onto the spool. I think it will take about ten feet of line (on each side).

Alternatively, spin the bump stop out of the assembly. This holds the spool in, so when the bump stop is removed, the spool comes right out.

I hope this helps.

Homelite curved shaft timmer line problem


So, is this trimmer suppose to feed the string automatically? If not, then it sounds like the string is wound up on the spool the wrong direction.
