Main faults of the reel

Users of electric trimmers and lawnmowers often encounter problems with the semi-automatic mowing head. Faults in the reel may be the following:

Cord spontaneously extends

There are situations when the grass trimmer user notices a very fast consumption of fishing line. At no time did he hit the button on the ground to lengthen the line. The reason that the line for the trimmer spontaneously lengthens, cutting against a special knife on the hood of the device, may be the lack of a spring in the mowing head. Often first-time users of mowers, trying to load the line for trimmer into the reel, forget to install the pressure spring in the head, or lose it at all when opening the cover, and later, do not even suspect of its existence.

Also a line for a trimmer can be extended without a button, if the spring is loose. If checking the spring confirms this fact, some washers should be placed under the spring to reinforce its clamping properties.

How to remove the spool and replace the line for trimmer

Owners of trimmers, mainly beginners, get confused, bordering on panic, when it becomes necessary to change cutting tools or line for a trimmer in the reel. Very often when trying to unscrew the mowing head, users simply cause it to fail, unaware that it unscrews in the opposite direction. To prevent this from happening if the tool needs to be replaced, it is advisable to read the step-by-step instructions below.

  • Before inserting the line into the spool, switch off the brushcutter engine or de-energize the electric grass trimmer to avoid injuries caused by unintentional starting of the cutting attachment.
  • Unscrew the head that is attached to the gearbox shaft. To do this, the shaft must be secured by aligning the holes on the washer and on the axle and inserting a metal bar or screwdriver into them.
  • Unscrew the nozzle. Note that the thread on the shaft is left-handed. Therefore, turn the grass trimmer spool to the right, that is, clockwise.
  • Disassemble the mowing head. The most common way to attach the cap is with clips. To remove it, it is necessary to push these catches into the body by pushing off the edges of the cover. In case your trimmer has a semi-automatic mowing head with a button at the bottom, disassembly of the mowing head should be done carefully, because you can lose the spring, which sometimes flies out when you remove the cover.
  • Cut the necessary amount of line. It is normally 5 meters long. Use as much cord as shown in the tool’s instruction manual. It is not recommended to exceed the maximum diameter of the line, as this will lead to increased load on the engine and greater gasoline consumption.
  • Locate the center of the filament by folding it in half. You will have a loop.
  • There are special grooves inside the reel (there may be holes). Insert the line loop into this groove.
  • Wind the line for the trimmer on the spool by turning it counterclockwise. Make sure the line is wound as evenly as possible, and the line should wind without overlapping and with a good tension. When you have finished winding it, leave about 20 cm of free line and fasten the ends in the slots on the reel flanges.
  • Assemble the mowing head. Do not forget to insert the spring and washer (if present) before finally assembling the nozzle. Insert the spool into the body and thread the ends of the line through the holes or eyelets.
  • Put on the cover and fasten it with the latches.
  • Screw the nozzle back onto the gearbox shaft by also securing it with the screwdriver. The grass trimmer reel must be tightened to the left (counterclockwise). arrows).

the trimmer line does not lengthen automatically

If the trimmer line does not extend when you lightly bump the grass trimmer reel on the ground, the reasons may be.

Variant 1. jamming has occurred, t.е. the filament is jammed between the coils. This problem usually occurs if the user has wound the trimmer line onto the spool unevenly, with overlapping coils, or has wound it with insufficient tension. in the last case, when the mowing head rotates at high speed, the cord starts to tighten under the influence of centrifugal force, which can result in inter-twist clamping of the line. To fix the problem you will have to disassemble the coil on the trimmer and rewind the cord correctly, i.e. with even turns with good tension.

Alternative 2. ends protrude from the head excessively short. trimmer fishing line may not come out when it hits the ground if its ends sticking out of the head are not long enough (short). In this case, the centrifugal force is not enough to make the trimmer line stretch. That’s why you need to stop the machine (turn off the engine or unplug the electric grass trimmer) and pull the line for the trimmer manually by pressing the button.

Variant 3. The trimmer line is soldered inside the mowing head. This leads to the fact that the spool stalls and does not spin when the button is pressed. Basically, this happens for several reasons: poor quality of the cord, overheating of the reel during prolonged operation of the machine, the impact of the line on hard objects.

  • In the first case, the third-party cord can be made from low-quality and fusible materials that can not withstand the mechanical and thermal loading. You should therefore give preference to “branded” lines.
  • But, if you still bought a line for a trimmer of unknown quality, and it often solders during work, you can follow the example of some users who, after filling the cord in the reel, lubricate it with either silicone grease (from a can) or mineral oil. This procedure makes it much less likely that the coils of the fishing line will solder to each other.
  • Also, trimmer fishing line can stick to itself if it hits a hard object (a rock, a fence, a dry branch, etc.) while mowing.д.). This causes it to stretch a little and retract back into the head at a high rate of speed. The cord gets hot because of friction, and its coils stick together. The only thing you can do to fix this malfunction is to open the grass trimmer reel and rewind the trimmer line.

How to remove the spool and change a line for a trimmer

Owners of trimmers, mainly beginners, get confused, bordering on panic, when there is a need to change cutting tools or line for trimmer on the spool. Very often when trying to unscrew the mowing head, users simply cause it to fail, unaware that it unscrews in the opposite direction. To avoid this happening in the event of a tool change, it is advisable to refer to the step-by-step instructions below.

  • Before tucking the fishing line for trimmer into the reel, turn off the brushcutter engine or de-energize the electric grass trimmer to avoid injuries that can occur when accidentally starting the cutting tool rotation.
  • Unscrew the head attached to the gear shaft. To do this, the shaft must be secured by aligning the holes on the washer and on the shaft and inserting a metal bar or screwdriver.
  • Unscrew the nozzle. Note that the thread on the shaft is left-handed. That’s why you should turn the brushcutter reel clockwise to the right.
  • Disassemble the mowing head. Most often the head cover is attached to the locks. To remove the cover you need to push the latches into the body by pushing the edges of the cover off. In case your trimmer has a semi-automatic mowing head that has a button on the bottom, disassembly of the mowing head should be done carefully, because you can lose the spring, which sometimes flies out when you remove the cover.
  • Cut the necessary amount of line. This is normally 5 meters long. Use the cord with the diameter indicated in the instruction manual of the tool. It is not recommended to exceed the maximum line diameter as this will put more stress on the engine and increase gasoline consumption.
  • Find the center of the cord by folding it in half. You will have a loop.
  • There are special grooves (there may be holes) cut into the inside of the spool. Insert the line loop into this groove.
  • Wind the line for the trimmer on the spool by turning it counterclockwise. Make sure the line is wound as evenly as possible so the coils do not overlap and have good tension. When you have finished winding, leave the free ends of the cord about 20 cm long and secure them to the slots on the sides of the spool.
  • Assemble the mowing head. Do not forget to insert the spring and washer (if present) before finally assembling the nozzle. Insert the filament spool into the body and thread the ends of the filament through the holes or eyelets.
  • Replace the cover and fasten the latch.
  • Screw the head back onto the gear shaft, also secured with a screwdriver. Screw the grass trimmer reel to the left (counterclockwise). arrow).

The line for the trimmer does not extend automatically

If the grass trimmer line does not extend when the grass trimmer spool button lightly strikes the ground, the reasons may be.

Variant 1. jamming has occurred, t.е. the cord is caught between the coils. This problem usually occurs if the user has wound the line on the spool unevenly, with crossed turns, or has wound it with insufficient tension. If the latter is the case, when the mowing head rotates at high speed, centrifugal force causes the filament to be pulled in, which can lead to a catch in the filament between the filament spools. To correct the problem you will have to disassemble the spool on the trimmer and rewind the cord correctly, i.e. with even turns and good tension.

Variant 2. the ends are too short and protrude from the head. The line may not come out when hitting the ground if the ends protruding from the head are not long enough (short). In this case, the centrifugal force is not enough to pull the line for the trimmer. It is therefore necessary to stop the machine (turn off the engine or unplug the electric grass trimmer) and pull the line for the trimmer manually, by first pressing the button.

Variant 3. trimmer line is soldered inside the mowing head. This causes the reel to be blocked and does not rotate when the button is pressed. Basically, this is due to several reasons: poor quality of the cord, overheating of the reel during prolonged operation of the machine, the impact of the line on hard objects.

  • In the first case, third-party cord may be made of low-quality and fusible materials that can not withstand the mechanical and thermal stress. Therefore, preference should be given to “brand-name” lines.
  • But if you have bought a line of unknown quality for your trimmer and it often seals during operation, you can follow the example of some users who, after filling the cord in the reel, moisten it with either silicone grease (from a spray bottle) or mineral oil. This procedure makes it much less likely that the line coils will stick together.
  • Also, the line for the trimmer may melt if it hits a hard object (a rock, a fence, a dry branch, etc.) while mowing.д.). As a result, it stretches a little and retracts back into the head at a high rate of speed. The friction heats the cord and causes it to stick together. The only thing you can do to fix this malfunction is to open the grass trimmer reel and rewind the trimmer line.

Grass trimmer reel repair with your own hands

the grass trimmer, be it gasoline or electric, is the only true solution for cutting grass in hard-to-reach places that a wheeled lawnmower cannot cope with. As a cutting tool in trimmers are used metal knives or a special line for trimmers, which is tucked into the trimmer’s reel for grass. But, unfortunately, trimmer heads become useless during exploitation over time. Some faults can be repaired with your own hands, some require a complete replacement of the mowing head.

This type of head is present in the complete set of the majority of gasoline mowers and electric trimmers, such as STIHL (STIHL), Patriot (Patriot), Champion (Champion), Bosch (Bosch), Huter (Huter) and others. The design of the mowing head is quite simple. It includes the following parts:

  • mowing head base;
  • A button for a semi-automatic cord;
  • bobbin (spool), in which the line for the trimmer is tucked in;
  • spring;
  • eyelets. through them the line for the trimmer comes out;
  • The cover of the trimmer head;
  • line for the trimmer (cord).

There are also simpler trimmer heads, shown in the following photo.

All of these nozzles do not allow you to change the length of the line in semi-automatic mode (after pressing a button). If the cord breaks, you have to stop the mower and change it manually.

Check the motor

If the button and wiring are undamaged, you can proceed to testing the motor. For this purpose remove the enclosure cover by first removing a few screws with a screwdriver.

The first thing to do after access to the electric motor is to check the functionality of the brush unit. If the brushes are worn beyond the maximum allowable value, the electric motor can stop completely or work unstably. If the brushes and the collector are all right, proceed to “check” the motor winding. In order to rule out the possibility of failure in both circuits should be carried out in turn

Motor stator and rotor check. In order to perform this operation it is necessary to

  • Remove the motor from the mower.
  • Switch on the multimeter in resistance measurement mode and check all collector plates for breakage. During the test there should not be considerable deviations in the readings of the testing device.
  • Perform a ground fault test of the rotor winding. Connect one probe of the multimeter to the rotor “mass” and the other to any plate on the collector. The multimeter should be set to measure the resistance greater than 1 megohm. The resistance of a good motor should be very high between the winding and the “common ground”.
  • Measure the stator winding resistance value. If there is no resistance, it can be stated in this case that it is faulty.
  • If the stator cables are perfectly all right, carry out a check for a possible ground fault in the same way as for the stator cables.

How to disassemble and repair electric lawn trimmer

Before disassembling and repairing the electric lawn trimmer, check the power outlet and mains voltage. If its value deviates from the norms specified in the instruction manual, then you should not even try to work the device without a stabilizer designed for the appropriate power. Otherwise the electric motor can break down. Only after determining that the cause of the grass trimmer failure is directly related to it, you can begin to disassemble the mechanism for repair purposes.

Disassembly and repair of electrical parts

To disassemble the electric motor for repair, proceed as follows.

  • Place the grass trimmer on a flat surface (such as a table) that is free of any unnecessary objects.
  • Loosen the screws on one side of the cover.
  • Remove the unscrewed half of the housing, getting access to the start button, the electric motor, the brush unit, bearings, electrical connections (these elements are shown in the photo below).

Brush and bearing assemblies are shown in the photo below.

The grasshopper will also work without the thermostat, but you’ll need to check the temperature of the electric motor yourself, periodically letting it cool down. You can also install a new similar sensor.

The motor starter button can be checked by shorting its contacts with a jumper. If the grass trimmer works, the problem is clear. But this way is not safe. Be careful not to receive an electric shock. To change the button, you should use a screwdriver to remove it from its seat and connect the wires from the old to the new. After the replacement you need to assemble the electric grasshopper and then check its functionality.

Brush replacement is required if the brushes are destroyed. It is enough to pull the old ones out of the grooves and install the new ones in their place.

The connection terminals are almost identical for different trimmers, so plugging and unplugging the wires is done in a similar way.

Replacing the bearing is quite a complex operation, because it can get stuck and not removed from the motor shaft. Pull or knock it down carefully so as not to damage the rotor or the seat.

When the electric motor trimmer for grass goes out of order, and you need to replace it with a new one, you should carefully remove the fan and bearings and then install them in their place. The cost of replacement is almost equal to buying a new mechanism. Its implementation in the absence of experience with electric motors is better to entrust the professionals.

Review: I do not know much, so that’s it,

Review: As long as it’s winter. Can’t say anything. Come summer. We will try it out

It works great, I used it all season long and it works great. I had to change my trimmer line to 2mm with a metal core for the fall straw, the grass trimmer handled. It has a short cord so you can cut it without fear of accident.

Great, it works, mows even a big grass. Very glad I ordered it. Very easy and handy. With my husband, “fighting” who will mow with it. Thank you and highly recommended.

Review: I took the weed trimmer like most people, for normal suburban mowing of seasonal weeds on the lawn and other places. Convenient that it is quite compact, handles well thought out, it’s a pleasure. I don’t know much, so that’s it. But to be honest, it would be nice to add blades, they would not be superfluous for anyone.

Efficiency, compact size, comfortable handle

The trimmer works great for the lawns at home. The device is light, compact, with a system of protection against overheating copes with its task perfectly. For cutting young grass in flowerbeds, between seedbeds, in the greenhouse, quickly and neatly. The lines for the grass trimmer are of good quality, they have never torn. Grass trimmer is comfortable and pleasant to hold in a hand, as the scythe features a stylish design.

It achieves its intended purpose, compact size, comfortable handle, and a protective cover

Review: This compact, lightweight electric grass trimmer cuts new grass between beds, in the flower garden, and in the greenhouse. The trimmer’s grass trimmer power and line thickness are sufficient for these applications. It has a quiet and well maintained handle with a knob under my fingers and an extra handhold. The hood safely protects my face from flying grass and dirt particles.

Review: I use the grass trimmer to care for my small lawn at home. The grass doesn’t grow much in a week and is easy to handle. The cover protects my feet from thrown grass. Easy to hold, it has two handles, the cross handle is adjustable. It cuts the grass with a fishing line, it is durable, easy to change as needed.

Small. Easy. That’s all. Only suitable for mowing

Lightweight, fits well in the hand, easy to use for short people.

-Does not cut thicker stems

Review: great value for money, happy with the overall quality/price ratio. It is possible to work, but, as I have already mentioned above, it does not cut thick grass

Compact size, light weight, power, reliable protection cover, easy to tuck in the trimmer line, additional handle on the boom

Review: Was bought for the summer cottage. I am happy with my purchase. Did not break down during the year of use. Weight is light, so my arms don’t get tired. No vibration, moderately noisy. It has a side handle, which makes holding and mowing much easier and puts pressure on both hands. It is maneuverable enough, even the flowers can be mowed gently. It is made of quality plastic. The color is black and does not show the dirt from green grass. Reel under the line for a classic trimmer, trimmer line tuck no problem, even a woman. But the wire is clearly short, save with an extension cord.

-No latch on the power button, flimsy head

Review: I originally bought the grass trimmer for mowing the lawn, but it e not bad showed itself in other tasks despite the fact that the handle is pretty short to work with him quite possible. You’d better not use trimmer line, but replace it with a better one.

Review: I took it for the care of a small area and it does the job very well. I like the shape of the blade of grass, it cuts evenly, it is easy to change the trimmer line if necessary. I like that it does not need to watch the fuel like in the last trimmer, this one runs on the network. The boom is demountable, so there is no problem with where to store

Review: Purely an urban trimmer for the grass. Lawn trimmer. Hence the design and stylish appearance. Not bad in the work. Gets the grass cut cleanly. It doesn’t crush, it doesn’t tear, but it cuts. It is desirable to replace the native line for trimmer on a thicker, so it will be more effective. The motor is at the bottom, so it’s best to mow when the grass is dry.
