How do you replace the white lever, and how do you know if it is broken?

SOURCE: I can't find the spool cover for the trimmer ST

Serious question??

Spools on almost all of the recently made trimmers do not have a separate cover. They're attached by pushing down and twisting them clock-wise. When you hear them snap into place, let up and its on. To take one off its just the opposite...push down it down and twist them counter-clockwise.
Hope this helps.

Belt came off so and I couldn't see the part that seem to be missing that kept the belt on. A nut, bolt and a wash sorted it for me. Fitted to the small drive cog. Simples. When dismantling - remember there is a screw under the sticker!

It sounds like that the automatic line release is damaged.

1. Remove and clean all debris from the head. I assume that you have already done this if you have changed the line a few times, but just make sure.

2. Remove the the head from the shaft.

3. There should be a large spring in there. If its broken, damaged or missing that will allow the head to spool line pretty fast. again make sure all debris is removed from this area.

4. Check the feed dogs in the same area as the spring. If they are worn the same problem will occur.

5. Install line on the spool.Make sure that it is wound the proper direction. There should be arrows indicating this. The line wound in reverse will also cause the same problem as well.

6. Put it all back together and see if works now.

7. If this doesn't solve it you may need to replace the head assembly.

Good luck!

Same thing happened to me. The belt broke. You'll need to take off all the screws to change the belt. There's a hidden screw under the black label. Feel around for the soft spot.

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.
