3 Common Reasons Why Your String Trimmer Line Won’t Feed

by HIPA Jeremy 10 Nov 2022 0 Comments

String trimmer line won’t feed? This blog provides information on how to troubleshoot a weed eater and the most likely defective parts associated with this problem.


Here are the top 3 most probable causes.

1.Worn out trimmer head
The trimmer head could be clogged with grass or other debris or simply worn out. You can remove the trimmer head to clean it thoroughly, but you may need to replace it with a new one.

2.Damaged trimmer head housing
A trimmer head housing that is cracked chipped or broken could prevent the trimmer line from feeding as well. The housing is relatively inexpensive and usually easy to install.

3.Wrong-size trimmer line
The trimmer line itself could be the wrong size for your trimmer or stuck in the trimmer head. Line that is too thick or too thin for the trimmer head won’t feed properly. You should enter the string trimmer’s full model number in our website search bar to find the correct line for your trimmer.
