Black&decker GH 1000 trimmer. The line breaks when spool is full


Try using a thicker line when using the thinner line it is good only for grass if you should hit fence or concrete it will eat it up and you will be pulling it out every 5 minites or less.

;How do you lengthen the string? (Have the grass


To lengthen the string:

- Turn the Grass Hog upside down
- Push in on the two release buttons on either side of the spool (they're orange)
- Pull the spool head off and spin it to release more string while you pull the string with your hand (make sure it is still fed out through the hole in the base)
- Pop the spool head back into place

Test the Grass Hog to make sure the string is not too long. If it is you'll hear it cracking against the plastic guard on the base.

String will not advance on black and decker grass hog electric trimmer


Did you re-string it? If you did it is possible that you crossed the string over itself and it is stuck. Check that and good luck...Lee

I have a Black and Decker Grass Hog trimmer and I can't get it


There is only a couple of reasons that I can think of that would cause this

1. The string is wound the wrong direction; it should be wound clockwise on the spool. (This is my bet.)

2. Or maybe, the string is too small for your particular trimmer, but this is very doubtful.

You have the string wound the wrong way. Wind in the other direction.

The last time I used the weed wacker it kept stopping-almost like a short. The battery is fully charged and has a lot of power when working. Would the problem be in the handle and can that be taken apart to see if there is a loose wire?

Don't know how to rethread the line


Breaking off is a normal process. Set the centre of your line in the spool and wind the two strands in to the Spool, thread and re assemble. C
