Putting string on spool for trimmer/edger

Hello, I have an old Black and Decker edger/trimmer that when I use it an try to get more line out with bumping it, it will no longer bump out. So what I have to do is take the cover off spool and pull some line out and put cap back on and start trimming. A little later the line breaks (0.65) and I start all over. I am getting frustrated. Help. I think I am winding the cord wrong on the spool and I need to know how to do it right.

Hold orange spool containing string while twisting the black plastic cap in the center, counterclockwise. This retaining cap is loosely spring loaded, so watch for the spring falling out. Once this locking cap is removed, the spool pulls right off.

Double spool on Weed Wacker


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.

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!!!
