Where the shaft meets the head there is a bolt, star shaped, take the bolt off and with a screw driver put it into the teeth of the gears and then turn the bolt. Tim

Ryobi 26cc gas trimmer. Can't replace line. Used 1 8'' line thru slots in spool. (3'' each side). Don't understand next step. Push down spool and twist? Should spool stay level...


You line up the head with "arrows" by turning the plastic bump knob on extreme bottom. When arrows line up with the head then you insert your line through the slots "OR" you insert the line in one side and it comes out the other side. Then you have to push pressure DOWN ******* the bump head while twisting the bump head clockwise to "pull in" the string until there's only about six inches left remaining on the "shortest" piece hanging out the side. use scissors to make the lines equal in size before staring the trimmer. Hope this helps.

Dont no how to string the head


Take a length of about 6 foot of line, kink it in the middle and pass this through the hole in the spool. Wind the two lengths of line around the spool in their own divisions and in the same direction. The direction of wind is embossed in the reel and the line should be wound tightly and held all the while. When you have about 6-8 inches left in your hand, bring the cover up to the spool and carefully pass the two ends of the line through the holes, push the cover all the way over while pulling on the two pieces of line and ensuring that the lines stay on their own side of the division on the spool. Fit and tighten the bump nut and trim the lines to just about the cut-off blade.
The lines should trail out of the holes in the direction of the machine's rotation. Try cut with the tip of the line as much as possible. Cutting nearer the drum flexes the line and will lead to early breaking of the lines. Run the motor at a constant speed and rather move the cutting head in and out of the weeds to affect a deeper cut

Bump feed replacement line cannot be removed . It sounds as though the hold shaft is turning


You should be able to remove the bump knob and then the inner spool. To keep the shaft from turning, try to grasp the dust cover with some vise grips or large adjustable pliars to hold it and just remove the knob. Spray penetrating oil under it if necessary and let it soak a couple hours to remove rust and corrosion and try it again. If there are any holes above the head in the dust cover or arbor, try to insert something in there to lock it up, like a slender scredriver. Here are the line spool removal instructions. See pages 14 and 15 in this manual.

How do you refill the string on the homelite electric, straigh shaft, 13 in Trimmer?


Is the sting the cutting line at the bottom of the trimmer? If it is pull the spool out. At the bottom of the spool there is an arrow pointing in the direction that the line should be wound. When you first put in the line be sure to place the cutting line in the grove (V shape) and then when you put enough line around the spool. Thread the end of the line thru the hole on the side of the spool. Slide the spool over the shaft of the trimmer and it will click in. When the line is short just tap the spool lightly on the grass and it will feed out more line.
Good Luck.

I have a homelite how do you get the hub off to replace the line?


Not sure of your model, but on most the Homelites, press the spool in toward the tensioning spring and then you'll be able to twist off the retaining nut. Keep the spool compressed on the spring while you twist it.

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.
