I bought a new electric weedwhacker last fall on a closeout sale. I
finally used it today, and it started out working well, but then the
string kept breaking off INSIDE the string holder (whatever that is
called). Anyhow, I have to keep taking off that cover over the string
and pulling out more string. After that, I whack for a minute or less
and the string breaks again. I am spending more time fixing the
string than whacking weeds. (This is the original factory string, and
was would at the factory, so it should be the right string and wound
properly on the spool).
One thing I noticed is that the string is sticking to itself inside
the spool. It's like it slightly melted together in spots. It pulls
apart easily, but it seems to me that this is not right, and is likely
what is causing the problem. Once again, this is FROM THE FACTORY, so
I it should be installed properly......
Since I bought it last fall, I doubt there is any warranty coverage,
or if there is, I'll have to drive 50 miles to get it taken care of,
which I am not willing to do at todays gas prices. I'm sure there is
something I can do myself, but what?????
Maybe I should just replace the string???
I was wondering if it would help to spray some WD40 or other lubricant
on the string... ?? ? ? ????
Thanks for all advice
