Black & decker grass hog trimmer

Line won't auto-feed: you mentioned that the white trip level may be broken -- is this something I can replace myself or do I need to take in into a shop?

My auto line feeder won't stop feeding line out. any suggestions?


Rewind your line the opposite direction you wound it on this last time.
If it is wound in the wrong direction, it will continue to feed out while running and that is your problem.
I hope this helped,

B & D auto feed string trimmer won't advance string


Is the string spool seated on the rachet correctly? If so and all is well, it is worth noting that these trimmers auto feed fuunction is problematic at best, requiring manually unwinding some line every few minutes as the unit gets older.

Feeds line almost constantly


There is a recall on the head units on some of the electric trimmer models,I dont know all the details but one recall is for the head unit actually flying apart. I thought I would tell you,I would contact black and decker and see if yours is one of the recalls.

Auto feed will not work


I think your problem is the little plastic ( white ) lever ( part# 598435-00 ) on the inside of the housing that holds the spool. Mine was working fine and then it just stopped feeding line altogether. I would order a couple (3-4) so you have them in stock. Looks like a part that will wear out fast. I wish they still sold a bump type weed eater. Hope that helps.

I have bleck and decker grass hog auto feed and it does not work


There is a smalll white part below the spool called a "lever". This is likely in need of replacement. Call Black and Decker at 800-544-6986 with your Model No, and Date Code (stamped on the trimmer itself near where the extension cord plugs in). If it is still under warranty they will send you the replacement part - if not, I loooked it up and it's less than $3 for the part itself.

Auto feed spool doesn't work


You may need to purchase a new spool housing, which may not be too hard to do, if you have one of the name brand trimmers. This replaces the whole mechanism that holds the line, the retaining ring, etc.
