Lost the manual. can't figure out how to get the spool out to replace the line?


There are two buttons on opposite sides of the head that allow the cap to be removed. With cap removed you will have access to the spool.

I hope this helps you.

I need a new spring to replace the lost one that makes the spool advance. Its a Grass hog that is a few years old. Not battery powdered, but electric. Can yoy tell me where to buy one or what size...


They have upgraded the old string heads (type 1) to a new string head (type 2). They say type 1 is no longer available. Please see part numbers 20 & 21 in this 14" Grass Hog parts breakdown diagram. The new string head is relatively inexpensive. If you don't want to get one, could I suggest you take the old spring (if you have it) and match it up with possibly a new spring at the hardware store. Sometimes you get lucky! Here is the parts diagram for it. Hope this 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.

Broken Edge Guide


The diameter of the Black&Decker GH400 edge guide is 1/8". I know because I have the same problem and a small piece left from the original. Trying to find a new one is quite the quest.

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.

I have a black & decker gh400 and the auto line feeder does not work


You will need to buy a new feeder head, if your model's head unscrews, normaly when these stop working there is not much you can do to fix it.
