Jammed line spool on Ryobi gas trimmer

I can't remove the spool on my line trimmer in order to feed more line - there appears to still be remaining line on the spool, but I cannot turn the knop to align the arrows as the manual tells me to do - I suspect the line is tangled, but what can I do about it?

    need to replace the string

  • Anonymous Sep 07, 2008

    I have the same problem. The trimmer line is tangled in the spool and there seems no way to access the internal spool assemblies. Is there a way to get into this assembly (disassemble it) to untangle the line and then reload it per user manual directions?

On my Ryobi trimmer, all I have to do is unscrew the knob (the device that you "bump" to advance the line) at the bottom of the spool and the spool can be lifted out. I had to use a strap wrench the first time since it was on very tight. You don't have to line up any arrows to remove the reel.

How can i strimmer wire on a ryobi plt 3043ye


Hi alice louise
Try this method

1 Press the lock and rotate the spool counter-clockwise or some will remove the center knob.
2 Remove the locking ring if your weed eater has one.
3 Take off the automatic feed button.
4 Wipe away any dirt and debris.
5 Push down on the spool to release the locking tabs.
6 Remove the spool from the chamber.

Restringing the Weed Eater
1 Feed one end of the line into one of the holes of the spool, and secure the end that was inserted
2 Wrap the line in the direction of the arrows. Do this until until you fill the spool up with line.
3 Secure each of the lines into its own upper and lower grooves.
4 Re-install the spool into the chamber from which it was removed.
5 Pass the lines into the left and right holes and snap the spool into place.
6 Once the spool is in its sleeve and fed into its left and right eye holes, pull both ends simultaneously.
7 Reinstall the locking ring if necessary, reinstall the center knob.

Please take time to rate me

I inherited a Ryobi 14'' Electro Hornet, but do not know how to change the trimmer line - can you help?


If it is a duel line trimmer then:

Cut two separate pieces of string, about 7 ft. each.

Stick the end of the line in the hole on the inside of spool.

Wind clockwise onto spool, putting the line that is closest to the ground on first.

Once you have winded this piece on, lock the last 4 inches of line through the slits on spool.

Repeat process for second piece of line, locking the last 4 inches in slot opposite the other locked in piece.

Put the spool on the trimmer, feeding the end of lines through either hole on trimmer.

Before you push the spool all the way on, pull the strings out of the locked position.

If it is a single line trimmer: Then just wind a single piece of string clockwise onto spool. This may need to be longer than 7ft.

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.

Ryobi Trimmer


To install string in the Ryobi you do not have to disassemble anything: Line up the two arrows on the inner and outer reel, remove any excess string, cut two pieces of string about 10 feet, feed line in the side holes, secure line in hole where it comes out the bottom (it only takes about 1/4in. to do so), pull strings tight, then turn the inner reel counter clockwise to wind it. If it sticks a little just pull line a little.
To remove the inner spool in order to remove line that has broken inside, to clean the mechanism, or to perform other maintenance, grasp the outer reel and unscrew the bump knob counter-clockwise. Mine is often very tight and requires pliers to get enough leverage. While you are in there, clean the inner reel and the inside of the outer reel to improve feed performance. The shaft rarely needs cleaning. Do not lubricate. After re-installing the reel, add string (0.080") as described above.
