To install string in the Ryobi you do not have to disassemble anything: Line up the two arrows on the inner and outer reel, remove any excess string, cut two pieces of string about 10 feet, feed line in the side holes, secure line in hole where it comes out the bottom (it only takes about 1/4in. to do so), pull strings tight, then turn the inner reel counter clockwise to wind it. If it sticks a little just pull line a little.
To remove the inner spool in order to remove line that has broken inside, to clean the mechanism, or to perform other maintenance, grasp the outer reel and unscrew the bump knob counter-clockwise. Mine is often very tight and requires pliers to get enough leverage. While you are in there, clean the inner reel and the inside of the outer reel to improve feed performance. The shaft rarely needs cleaning. Do not lubricate. After re-installing the reel, add string (0.080") as described above.

How do you reload the string trimmer on a t430 Ryobi 4 cycle push weed trimmer

Found this previously posted:

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. Put cap on and GO CRAZY!

How do i get trimmer line holder cap off my electric ryobi trimmer rlt 1038

Hi, I wished I had read this before I bought my rlt1038, I used it for
8 mins and 1) long grass caought around the drive head, 2) I tried to undo the screw holding the line head. Fortunately I have a wide pair of foot prints to go across the line head and a central heating pump adjustable spanner- after 5 mins I had undone it. Yet another bad design !
Good Luck

Fuel lines!

Sounds like you need to adjust the carb. Remove the caps from the carb. Turn both screws clockwise until all the way seated. Start the trimmer and while running begin to back out the screws slowly until the trimmer is running strong but is smooth. Once you have the carb adjusted you can put the caps back on or you can discard.
Good luck!

2 Cycle Gas Trimmer will not start

it is normal to see air bubbles in line when pumping the bulb. to make sure what the problem is, try starting several times, remove spark plug. if dry, yes no fuel, remove the carb. if wet, place plug on engine block and look for blue spark. no spark means you need new plug, plug cord or ignition module

Lawn trimmer line

This is a common problem. Make sure you are using the manufacturer's recommended line. When winding the line, try to coil it in nice even rows. This helps me to get a better feed. Good Luck!

Ryobi rlt30ces trimmer

Hi there, takes a bit of working out without a manual, but try this....take bottom half of trimmer line spool off, get piece of spool line approx 60 cm, long and thread through centre holes, ( bit fiddly but ) pull line through until you have equal length on both sides, dont try and wind it up onto the spool, just put ends of line through outside cover holes, then lock spool in place in other half. now simply wind the knob at the end and the line should retract into the spool., sounds complicated but really isnt, best regards and good luck, Philbee

Ryobi gas trimmer

I don't mean to over simplify this, but are you using fresh gas? Gas string trimmers are extremely ticky when it comes to gas. They like it SUPER fresh. And while the gas and oil mixture should be right, it can be off a little bit and still run. Try draining all of the gas out, and then filling up with fresh mix. This is ALWAYS my first step with string trimmers, and it fixes the problem 75% of the time.
Hope this helps!!
