While trimming a type of brush wrapped around the cutting head and made the unit stall, upon clearing it the head now is weak and does not spin with enough power to cut; how can i fix this?


Remove string cap and tighten nut or you will have to hold shaft just above string head with pliers and turn head by hand till tight.

I have a craftsman 17.5 hp tractor that will start but soon cuts off. I have replaced gas. battery fuel filter and spark plug. Also burning a lot of oil to me.Have replaced fuel lines also. Seems to not...


Could be a head gasket. I'd recommend a compression test or better yet a leak down test that will show where the leak is. Hope this helps. Please vote yes, thank you

I have a craftsman 32cc weedeater model 316791810. I am not sure how to replace the trim line. Is the line supposed to automatically length itself when the line breaks?


An auto feed line system will do just that and if too much line is released there is usually a cutter inside the edge of the plastic guard covering the string head. I use a Troy Built head on a 32 craftsman and I unscrew the bump knob ...twist and pull out the spring loaded spool....cut a lenth of line 6-8 feet or so....thread the two raw ends thru the two holes in the inner spool....pull them out until they are even with each other....then grasp each one and hold them side by side and wind them onto the spool in a clockwise manner. This is how I do the string head with a split boom that fits the 32cc Sears Power head (an older Troy Bilt).

Don't know how to advance cutting wire.


Did you try bumping the head on the ground? Also, the head could be dirty, keeping the string from feeding. Or maybe the previous owner tried putting a larger size string in the head. Check to see what the proper size is for your trimmer.
Both of these suggestions could cause this.
