Question about Black & Decker String Trimmer Cordless 12" 18V

Open Question

Opposite problem-- mine will not STOP feeding line!

I've taken it apart, and the white lever is in place and moves freely. The cogs seem to lock into position so that when I manually rotate the head, the line-feeding hub stays locked to the spinning shaft. Yet as soon as I apply power, it begins feeding line and cutting it non-stop.

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!

SOURCE: the shaft stopped turning

I have the same problem, the B&D service tech told me that the problem is the little gear that transmit power from the motor to the spool, it is made from plastic and just melt

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.

Gears are not rotating; motor works though


I guess you have made sure that the cutters are not jammed by bits of paper and card?

String does not seem to feed automatically frequently have to take the spool out to re thread through the lottle holes


These things can be very sensitive with how the sting is coiled on the spool. Take your time and try to get it perfect. Look at the pre strung replacement spools for an example. also inspect the lever, usually under where the spool sits. Make sure its not to dirty and moves freely. After that when you want it to feed quickly pull and release the trigger a couple times. If you dont want it to feed the when you pull the trigger be sure to maintain how far you have it pulled back, then release it a little slower than usual. Lastly wait a few seconds before pulling again. If this doesnt work the lever may be worn out and defective. But they are super cheap and easy to replace.

Can't figure out how to set the times to turn power off/on.The metal trippers seem to be permanently in there.


Remove dial from body of timer.
So now the timer is apart in 2 pieces.
Silver ON trippers and brass OFF trippers can be removed.

Place trippers in times you want timer to operate.
OFF trippers have to be at least 2 hours apart.
ON trippers have to be at least 2 hours apart
Minimum on-off function is one hour

Snap timer back together.

Tripper rotates around with dial.
When tripper contacts on-off lever, it physically moves lever like turning on light switch.
ON tripper moves lever one direction.
OFF tripper moves lever opposite direction.

If you are asking how to drop the feed dogs, the lever is located underneath the free arm bed on the back side of the machine. So you must first remove the free arm bed. To drop the feed dogs, push the lever over to the side. To raise them back, push the lever the opposite direction, back where they were originally. You will not actually see the feed dogs move until you turn the handwheel toward you. I hope this helps. I do not know how old your machine is or anything. I believe mine is about 5 years old or so. Good luck

Paper feed problem.


I have just removed the panel where the power and USB cable lock into. It's a case of 1 screww from the rear and 2 catchs underneath the printer. From there you should be able to see the mechanism for the roller, a set of small white cogs. below that you should be able to see a very small spring which is acting as the pressure. Mine was still attached but as you say was pulling no pressure on the roller what so ever.

Solution:
Find yourself a large-ish rubber band and slip the band over the whole mechansim. Best way is through the paper feed slot, slip it over the roller and then move it through to the area where you removed the panel. Position the rubber band as far down the cogs as possible, don't worry the cog casing prevents the band interfearing with the cogs. Now pull the band reasonably tight and with the other hand test the pressure of the roller. Adjust till you feel OK with it. Now put the panel back in with the end of the rubber band trapped and poking out from the panel behind the printer, holding it in place. Redo the screw and give it a try.

My first attempt found it a bit too restrictive and feeded to sheets at a time but adjusted it once and its back to normal. I know its a bodge but its a cheap one and it uses a rubber band, just how I fixed my Punto's windscreen wiper, £120 part or a rubber band once a month... Mmmm...
