I used a file to sharpen the line cutter which controls the amount of line. After sharpening the small cutter on the trimmer, the length of the line is now under control and now my trimmer works just fine.

SOURCE: Installing new line on my string grass trimmer

Cut two separate pieces of string, about 7 ft. each.

Stick the end of the line in the hole on the inside of spool.

Wind clockwise onto spool, putting the line that is closest to the ground on first.

Once you have winded this piece on, lock the last 4 inches of line through the slits on spool.

Repeat process for second piece of line, locking the last 4 inches in slot opposite the other locked in piece.

Put the spool on the trimmer, feeding the end of lines through either hole on trimmer.

Before you push the spool all the way on, pull the strings out of the locked position.

How do i untangle the cable fro my spare tire on my 2009 Jeep Grand Cherokee?


Yes, the cable is tangled internally. It only rewinds evenly with a load (such as a spare tire) on it! The assembly will have to be removed and disassembled to untangle the cable or replaced.

Trimmer starts but hardly rotates when giving it gas.


Check for a tangle of grass or wire just above the string head where it attatches to the shaft. A buildup in that area can interfere with the movement of the head.

Whick way do I fit the plastic thread into the holes on the top of the spool, is there a certain way


Assuming you are talking about a weed *******/grass trimmer, look for an arrow on the spool indicating which direction you should wind the thread. If there is no arrow or it has worn off, turn on the trimmer to see which direction the spool spins. Wind the thread in the direction the spool spins. If it spins clockwise, insert the thread into the hole in the center and begin to wrap the thread around the spool in a clockwise direction, avoiding any major overlaps.

The line keeps advancing so that it gets very long and tangled up. It happens the minute I start using it. Is something broken?


You are winding the line in the wrong direction. Wind it the opposite way that you have been winding it. This will solve the problem.

How do put the cutting cord on the spool so that it can be pulled out after wearing down


Hi, Robert I will try to explain the best I can. There are many different ways the manufacturers build the heads and spools for grass trimmers. Remove the spool from the head of your trimmer. Some just pull out, while others have different ways and adapters that screw out, if you have never removed yours look in your owners manual or if you don't have a manual you will have to find the way you remove the spool from the head. When you remove the spool, remember which way it goes.back in. Once the spool is removed if there is still a small amount of line remaining observe the way it is held on the spool. If no line remains look at the bottom of the spool for an eyelet or holes right at the bottom or on the side. If you see an eyelet just tie the line to it. If there is nothing but one hole that means that with the right size of line it will go in tight to hold line. If 2 holes are present insert in one hole and out the other. If you have a 2 line trimmer then 2 holes means in one hole and out the other which makes sense. Whatever is the way to hold the line in, sometimes it just doesn't hold the line on once you start winding line on. There are a few manufacturers I find you can use on all spools and is easy.Take some packing tape or any kind of tape you want to use. Wrap around line then tape to bottom of spool, the easiest way to hold on and works on any make of trimmer. Look at the spool and there is usually an arrow on outside to give you the direction to wind. It is important how you wind line on spool, try to wind neatly like back and forth in even rows so that later the line doesn't get tangled up. But it is also very important not to twist the line. What I mean by that is the way the line comes off the package it comes in. Wind the line the same way it is wound on pack. I hope I am explaining it properly and that you understand what I mean. Put the spool and pack end to end and unroll the line out of the pack the same it is rolled in the package. That is to prevent the line from getting always tangled up and you having to remove the spool to get untangled. I think you probably get what I mean. Do not put too much line on the spool, leave about 1/4" from top of spool. Install the spool the exact same way it came off. I hope I have helped you and that you understand the way I explained it. All the best and good luck. I will gladly answer any other questions.

RYOBI GAS WEED TRIMMER RIPCORD TANGLED


You should be able to take the housing loose with about 4-6 torx head bolts/screws and get in there and untangle the rope. May not even have to take the housing off, just loosen it. Good Luck!
