Trimmer line is spinning but slowly, like it has lost power.

Sounds like just what you said "it's lost power" Are you sure the battery is fully charged? Try another battery if you have one. There is no clutch to slip on this type trimmer. It's got to be either the battery is not putting out enough to turn the motor or the motor itself is bad.

How to reload pull cord spring assembly?

not it not easy but can be done

found this on a web site should tell you what you need to know


I removed the screws from the bottom of the unit to separate mechanism that held the blades from the engine. This revealed a clutch on the end of the drive shaft. I removed the springs so I could remove the two halves of the centrifical clutch. I did this so I could then remove the mount these two halves were around. This mount had an arrow and the word 'off' on it. I placed a block of wood against this mount and hit the wood (protecting the mount) as to spin off the mount in the direction of the arrow. A few sharp licks with the hammer and the mount started to come off. I removed it by hand then. Next I removed screws and spark plug so I could get the green housing off where the cord was mounted. Inside this housing is a white spool the cord was on. Becareful with the next step. To replace the cord I removed the spool the cord is wound on but be careful, under the spool is a metal housing under which is the spring that rewinds the cord when you pull start the unit. The end of the white spool that is out of your sight meshes with the end rewind spring. If you pull too far up on the spring or the metal housing that keeps the spring in place you will have spring everywhere and possibly toward your face becareful. So Loosen the two screws and turn the tabs out of the way that hold down the white cord spool. Slowly work the white cord spool off. Replace the cord on the spool making sure you wind it in the proper direction. Then replace the spool and mesh it with the spring. Turn the spool to wind the spring and retention the pull cord rewinding spring. re assemble unit. Good luck! This is not a step by step but I believe it will get you what you need.

Replacement fasteners must be the correct part number for that application. Fasteners requiring replacement or fasteners requiring the use of thread locking compound or sealant are identified in the service procedure. Do not use paints, lubricants, or corrosion inhibitors on fasteners or fastener joint surfaces unless specified. These coatings affect fastener torque and joint clamping force and may damage the fastener. Use the correct tightening sequence and specifications when installing fasteners in order to avoid damage to parts and systems.
  • Install the 3 bolts to the window motor. Tighten
    Tighten the bolts to 5 N·m (44 lb in).

    Can't remove casing for B&D Cordelss Grasshog (NST2018 Type 2)

    These are the steps to open the clamshell/motor housing for the Black and Decker 18V Cordless Trimmer Model NST2018. The orange clamshell has two plastic clips that engage two recesses inside the black plastic ring. You use two screwdrivers to disengage the clips and seperate the black plastic ring from the orange clamshell. Follow these steps: Wrap tube assembly in a small towel and mount in a large bench vice securely. You will notice two small openings at the top of the black plastic ring at the top of the orange clamshell. The next steps require two people. Person one inserts a flat-bladed screwdriver into into each of the small openings at the top of the black plastic ring (two screwdrivers). Using the tube assembly for leverage, pry the black plastic ring from the orange clamshell with enough force to disengage the orange plastic clips from the black plastic ring. Person two pulls the orange clamshell/motor housing away from the black plastic ring/tube assembly along a straight line (same axis as the tube assembly). After you've separated the motor/clamshell housing from the black plastic ring, remove the six screws and open the clamshells.
