How do you replace a weed eater trimmer line?
It is not too difficult -- you have to buy a new spool of the plastic line. Unplug or turn off the weed eater, and then carefully remove the old spool. Then you pull out a bit of the new spool so it sticks out past the opening (about two inches will do) and snap the new spool in.
Make sure you buy the correct replacement spool so that the directions apply to the weed eater you have. If you have tough weeds, buy a thicker line...it lasts longer.
Always unplug it if its electric or pull the contact wire off the spark plug if it's gas. Make sure you don't get whipped by accidentally turning the power on...it will hurt you.Next, remove the screw that holds the spool onto the unit. The spool is the piece that you will refill with new line. Spool according to the arrows on the plastic casing. Reinsert onto weed whacker. Tighten screw. Reinstall the wire onto the spark plug or plug unit back into the cord. Tamp down on the ground to feed wire (most weed whackers are made like this to advance the string). Happy weed whacking. Always use the guard unless you do this professionally. Use caution if removing the guard and using it.You can use it as an edger though with the guard removed.ALWAYS wear safety glasses when using power equipment.
you have to line up the arrows and pull really really hard and it should come off.
The spool should just pull out, its held in by 2 clips, royate it till it pops up then pull it out, with a wiggling motion,
Grasp firmly and pull straight out....per tech support from 800 number on machine.
There are two ways to change the string on a weed eater depending on what type of weed eater it is. First you will have to manually maneuver the appropriate amount of nylon string into the string cap at the head of the string trimmer. Or you can replace the entire head cap with a brand new spool of string. You will have to figure out what type of string trimmer you have and than…
There are usually detailed directions on the back of the package of the replacement string. Two basic things to do are to unplug the weedeater first and do not unwrap the new string until just before putting it in where it goes. Otherwise, you'll have to rewind it. Locate the round tap button. Pull it straight out, firmly. This opens the chamber for new line or spool. I figured this out five minutes ago.
1. Remove shield. 2. Firmly pull on the tap button. The tap button is on the very bottom and is what you tap on the ground to get new line. 3. Put the new line in with the direction of the arrows on the spool. 4. Put the line in the notch. This is the part that goes out in four directions, two of them have notches. 5. Align the notch with the exit hole…
