After trimming a short time with the weed wacker, both spools go back inside the weed wacker even if you click it on the ground every so often.
How do I keep the spool from going back into the weedwacker
This isn't a solution to the problem. However, I think you should talk to someone at Home Depot or Lowes or wherever you bought the model, and see if the string is in there correctly; if it is, then u'r weed wacker must have some other mechanical problem. Sometimes it is just best to buy a new one. The more expensive models are the best.

Go at it from the other end. Take the handle off of the rope. If you have a fine piece of wire, attach it securely to the handle end of the rope; you'll use the wire to feed the rope back through in a moment. Wind the spring and starter wheel. When it's getting about as tight as you want it, align the knot hole with the shroud grommet. Feed the pull rope and wire through the knot hole, and out the shroud grommet, and pull the line all the way through, down to the knot. Catch the free end and put a slip knot in it, so it can't whizz on back into the reel. Attach the pull handle, and release the slip knot. Best regards, W/D
What you need to do is first remove the new cord that you installed.
(This next process is best performed by 2 people)
Pre-wind the spool gently COUNTER CLOCKWISE until the spring prevents further winding. Have the 2nd person grip the spool so that it does ot unwind. Back off the spool until the re-wind rope hole is aligned with the outer cover rope guide. Insert the new rope through the outer cover rope guide hole and into the spool hole. Pull the new rope through the spool hole and tie a single small knot. Pull the knot into the hole. 2nd person releases the spool and the rope will rewind into the re-coil assy.
First unscrew the bump line leter outer. Then remove the yellow line holder, you will see 2 line grooves for each of 2 lines you will wind into the spool. You will see an inlet area at each of the 2 line holders, you will take about 8-10 feet of line and thread the line into the the groove inlet it will poke out the top of the spool. You will see 2 small holes on the top of the spool, feed just the tip of the line into the hole and pull the line tight on the groove side. Do this on both grooves on the spool, once the line is secure, fish each line into the holes on the spool head and secure with the bump spool leter outer. After spool is secure take the entire spool and wind back into the spool head. you will see the line wind into the spool. make sure you wind the right direction. Once you have seen how this is done, look at the bottom of your assembled spool and you will see 2 arrows. If you have no line in the spool, line up the arrows and take 8-10 feet of line and feed as you did when you have the spool removed. The line should feed through the spool and the line will stick up from the bottom, turn the line and feed just the tip of the line into the retainer hole and pull tight from the spool let-out, once secure wind line back into the spool. Once you have done this once its very easy to do over and over!!!
