First unplug the unit and then ensure you still have sufficient string left on your spool.

Disassemble and clean any debris away from the string spool mechanism if necessary.

Although I did not see the documentation for your exact model of trimmer, I have included links to a similar model which may be close enough to help you.

Here is an owner's manual for a UT41110 model:

http://www.homelite.com/product_manual/file_url/35/UT41110_221_eng.pdf

See page 11 of this manual for detailed instructions on how to advance the string.
Basically it reads as follows:

With the trimmer running, release the trigger switch, wait two seconds and then press the trigger switch.
The string will extend 1/4 inch with each stop and start cycle.
DO NOT bump the unit on the ground to try to advance the string.

Homelite string gas trimmer Model ut20811A: 1. Will start with full choke and run with full choke for a while but will not maintain speed when choke is released. 2. String feed will not feed when taped....


If it only runs with choke on, then mixture is too lean or idle set to low.
Adjust mixture initially at 1.5 turns, then move in or out as needed for highest idle when warm.
Make sure no leaks or clogged filter when adjusting.

Hard to say with string feed, but are you sure you are not putting the spool in backwards?

I was given a homelite mighty lite 26VT and I can not figure out how to remove the spool to insert the string.


There is a threaded cap on the spool that can get very tight, but a pair of Channel-loc pliers usually does the trick to remove the cap. Getting the string to feed consistently is a trick that I have not figured out how to do...

Once you have the string wound onto the spool, place the spool onto the shaft and pull the strings out of the slots so that the string feeds through the holes without going through the slots. Good luck...Lee

Homelite trimmer, gas, string - y is the string wrapping itself around the head of the trimmer?


The line on my new 26cc Homelite would also feed out by itself. That started me thinking the line was wound backwards. I wrapped the line in the opposite direction as was shown on the bump feed reel and now the dang thing works although the bump feed needs to be "bumped" pretty hard to work. Is it possible that the reel was manufactured with the (string direction) arrows pointing the wrong direction? The new 26cc unit is also underpowered compared to my older 25cc trimmer.

Homelite st-175g trimmer


This is for a duel line trimmer. I hope this will help.

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. Put cap on and GO CRAZY!

Homelite curved shaft timmer line problem


So, is this trimmer suppose to feed the string automatically? If not, then it sounds like the string is wound up on the spool the wrong direction.
