SOURCE: 18v cordless string trimmer will not stop feeding line

Some of the trimmers recommend a certain size line, if you have one of these that let line out as needed, the speed at which the trimmer cuts will let out line as needed. If you have too small of line the drag for the friction let-out you will spoll all the line out. Make sure the line is the right size, They come in alot of sizes, anywhere from .060" to .125" line thickness so make sure you have the right size line!

Go to home depot. look at the floor model and the replacement spools they sell there. Reverse engineer the stringing process or but a pre-loaded spool.
Otherwise,
1. Squeeze the tabs on the side of the head of the unit to remove the spool cover.
2. remove spool.
3. place end of string in small hole in center ring of spool.
4. wide spool with string in the direction of the arrows printed on the spool. DO NOT OVERLOAD!.
5. snap string into notch on spool and cut string leaving 6" exposed.
6. thread 6" of string through hole in side of unit head, replace spool, and replace cover.

SOURCE: 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.

1 year old starting spitting out possible cord pieces and hitting me in shin area. at first I thought it was little rocks or pebbles,,but not


The cord is not properly wound on the center spool, or there is dirt, grass, plant parts, etc. in the spool release mechanism.
First step clean and check the spool and release.

How do you advance the string


These little electric machines have an automatic line feeding system. Do not bump the trimmer head on the ground attempting to make line advance. If the line advance is not functioning like it should, then the string head should be removed and the spool inspected for snags and tangles.

Black&decker GH 1000 trimmer. The line breaks when spool is full


Try using a thicker line when using the thinner line it is good only for grass if you should hit fence or concrete it will eat it up and you will be pulling it out every 5 minites or less.

Black and Decker Grasshog auto line feeder just spits line out non-stop. Tried lots of things but nothing seems to work.


I'm gonna take a guess and say you re-spooled the line yourself. If you did you may have put too much line on the spool. The max. is 30', but I've found that that can cause jamming, which forces out more line, if not done perfectly. Reduce the amount of line by about 5 feet and you should be OK.

I have a Black and Decker Grass Hog trimmer and I can't get it


There is only a couple of reasons that I can think of that would cause this

1. The string is wound the wrong direction; it should be wound clockwise on the spool. (This is my bet.)

2. Or maybe, the string is too small for your particular trimmer, but this is very doubtful.

ST 4000 corded


could be the spring, could be not setting right in the spool causeing the spindle to think its being pushed down when its not. causeing it to spit out the line.

check that and if you have another spool kicking around please grab that as well for testing the unit. could also be the spool itself try cleaning that out as well if it looks too dirty.
