Hi Ken, If your spools are emptying by over feeding it sounds as if they are spooled the wrong way. Try re spooling one by putting the cord on the opposite way it is now. You may be getting the wrong spools or there is a fault with your trimmer.
For Black and Deckers: Remove cup from bottom of unit by depressing 2 detent tabs and pulling away from unit. Replace empty spool with new full one or wind on aftermarket string. Wind in direction of arrow on spool. Make sure spool is seated on rachet firmly.
Just replace the LEVER, Item #29, Part #598435-00, for about $3.00 (B&D, Dewalt). Just pull old level straight out (pliers) and push replacement in. Level end expands to hold it in place. No other parts. Forget cleaning and replacement the spool, graphite or oiling... just replace the lever.
I bought the electric grasshog trimmer. Worst investment I ever made on Garden supplies. The line is completely gong within ten feet of trimming. I've used it four times and gone through twenty spools. In the trash now.
You may need to purchase a new spool housing, which may not be too hard to do, if you have one of the name brand trimmers. This replaces the whole mechanism that holds the line, the retaining ring, etc.
