The most common reason for the cord refusing to rewind is a broken or worn out recoil spring. This tiny spring hooks onto the pulley and is stretched out when you pull the cord; when you let go the spring is meant to snap back to its original position.
Electric cordless strimmers
Cordless strimmers are powered by lithium-ion batteries rather than mains electricity. Because of this, you can use them anywhere in the garden, but you`re restricted by run time and how long the battery takes to charge.
A strimmer wire is an important component of a strimmer. Without it, the machine will not cut grass or weeds as it is supposed to. These cords come in different sizes, colours, and shapes. so making a choice between so many options can be difficult, especially if you haven`t used this device before.
It`s simple, round string typically offers the best longevity of any shape. Think about it, . 095 is a measure of the thickest part of a trimmer line.
Most styles and weights are interchangeable, so you can use non-OEM (original equipment manufacturers) line. However, larger/heavier line may not fit every string trimmer. Replace old trimmer line every spring. It could turn brittle over the cold winter and break more easily.

Need to restring spool – Husqvarna 28cc Gas Line Trimmer
The spool should come off pretty easily. Make sure you go with some of that green line, I put that on my Stihl FS 90 R and it whacks through anything, also lasts a very long time.
At home depot I can purchase .065 line without the spool for my trimmer. Should I buy this line and, if so, is it fairly easy to rewind it back on a used spool?
It is fairly easy to restring trimmer. just follow the arrows on the spool.

Auto feed doesn’t work
Take the end apart and make sure the line is not getting bound up or is not over filled to where it can not move freely
Can not get spool head apart to change line, tried pump pliers, pipe wrench, won’t unscrew!!
If you are sure that it screws on it may be a reverse threaded unit..
I cannot get the line to feed as it is used up. bumping does no good. the spring is in place. thanks for your help
Did you wind in the new string in the correct direction? The string should be wound in the SAME direction that the head spins.
Trimmer head line loading instruction – Husqvarna 28cc Gas Line Trimmer
1. Remove the cap on the trimmer head, it unscrews.2.
The spool comes off, and on the inside of the spool there is a small
hole, this is where you will start your trimmer line. It it will hold it
in place while you wrap it. There is also arrows on the spool showing
the direction that you need to wrap your spool.3. Insert the
line in the hole and start to wrap the line in the directions of the
arrows, try to keep the line in rows, or else the line may bind and you
will have to do it all over again.4. Feed the line through the
retainer and reinstall the spool by lining up the retainer and the slot
on the outside portion on the trimmer head, the screw back on the
trimmer head and you will be ready to trim.

Need to know how to wind trimmer line on trimmer
Depends on the trimmer, all heads are different. However, the majority of trimmers are wound as follows:
1. pop the top cover off the head, pull the spool out. It will be either single or double lined, they will be wound counter clock wise.
2. the end of each line goes out each of the seperate holes
3. slide spool back on and replace cover
