SOURCE: Line continues to advance and wrap around axle

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.

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.

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.

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!

How to fit whipper snipper line


Hold the snipper upside down so the petrol leaks onto the kitchen floor. Take 6 metres of line and untangle it eventually. Stick it through the two holes and wind the cord in opposite directions so it jams together and tangles. Stick the unit head back together with two feet of line sticking out each side. Start the trimmer and jump backwards as the line rips itself to pieces. Use it on weeds until line breaks within 20 seconds. Slam the end of the trimmer into the concrete and shout **** fuckey **** ****. Then tear off the head cover and start again. I have done this for years and it never fails. Hope this helps.

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
