With battery fully charged as indicated by the green lights...the trimmer will not operate when trigger is squeezed. Just all of a sudden, would not work. Last used a week ago. No problems at that time. Any chance the trigger is defective?
how to load line on to trimmer?
I have just rewound new cutting line, following the instructions. However, the line does not last long; I have to stop cutting, removed the bty, then manually lengthen the line, then start cutting again.
On the line spool, there are two sets of slots which I would assume are used to secure the line? Help please; Unable to use the line trimmer. Thanks
When the switch is released the automatic line feed is feeding out about 25mm of line. This seems too much as the line is being used too rapidly. Is this the way it is meant to work? Or is there a way of adjusting the amount of feed or perhaps disengaging the line feed?

My first spool has been exhausted. It is 18v lithium battery driven model. Where can I find a utube demonstration of installing a replacement spool ?
My ryobi cordless line trimmer - only used 4 or 5 times - will start spinning but immediately stops spinning when put to work. There's action going on in the shaft but the head won't spin. Can anyone please advise?
Unknown to me the spool cover fell apart while I was using it. I realised what had happened when I stopped it to see what the strange noise was. I had a new one but before I replaced it I had to clean some cut grass away a a small spring fell out of the part where the spool goes but I don't know where it came from to replace it. Any ideas please??? thanks.
Yes, I had look at mine. The push button/slide piece to release more string slides in when u push it in. Behind/under that slide piece is a small spring that returns the slide/ button., You may need to fiddle with it a bit and put that spring back in.Good luck u should be ok. Worst thing Ryobi should/could sell u a new spool. I have another brand machine and bought on Ebay a new spool $15.00.
I had my line trimmer for a few years and it has done a fair bit of work. Now its has started to lose power . It comes up to the revs put slows down under load. It also needs help to get going occasionally. I am suspecting worn brushes. Can they be replaced and what type of brush do i need?
Many say the automatic line feeder does not work
Mine used to work sometimes and not at others. Lately I've noticed that it works better than previously and that it seems to perform better with a good battery. The battery that came with the trimmer (5Ah) is a dud and is failing after just two years (outside the 2 yr warranty). When I use the old 4Ah battery(that I had to buy 4 yrs ago to replace a dud 1.4Ah battery that came with a blower) it spins the trimmer at a higher speed and it works fine. So, I figure that Ryobi puts their reject batteries into their packages such as line trimmers/shears/blowers/etc and keeps the batteries that pass their certification as separate sale items at higher prices (eg $150 for a new 5Ah batt as opposed to a package of trimmer, 5Ah batt and charger for $229). So if your line is not auto feeding then try using it with a good battery not the one that came in the package.
I have replaced the trimming line but it keeps 'autofeeding' and is too long. Is there something I have missed? Or does the line have to be a specific type?
Since replacing the line with the recommended cassette my Ryobi +one line trimmer does not self feed.
Does this come with battery and charger or are they extra?
My white cover for the line feed reel has disintegrated. Can I replace this part?
How do I attach the line trimmer to the charger?
