FL25C Trimmer Head Smoking and Not Rotating

We have a FL25C trimmer that we bought Fall 2013 and used maybe twice. We were using it on 3/10/13 and the line attachment melted at the base of the shaft. I have photos I can send via email if you like. We have bought these trimmers over the past several years with no problem other than just wearing them out. I called customer service and they suggested I take it to a service center, but they could not find one in Asheboro, NC 27205 the closest was in Archdale, which is 20+ miles away and she felt this was strange that there were none closer. Can you offer more help for a solution?

Hello Wendy,

Weedeaterfeatherlite.com is not the official website of the weedeater brand. We are an information only website.

I have come across this problem before. The issue is the rotating cutter head is no longer rotating, although the inner mechanical drive shaft is. This causes much friction causing the head to melt.

If you or a friend is mechanically minded then follow our how to guide on how to fix the problem (link below).

How To fix a non-Rotating Trimmer Head

If you cannot fix it yourself then unfortunately it would be cheaper to replace the whole trimmer. Or if you have warranty with the place of purchase then I would recommend returning it.

Hope this helps.

Featherlite FL20 Fuel Lines and Tank

Featherlite FL20 Fuel Lines and Tank

From: Jim

I was given this unit by next door neighbors family after the parents both passed away. It ran fine last year, but won’t start this year. I always use Sta-bil in the fuel mixture and empty tank when put up. I filled it with fresh gas & oil mixture, but it failed to start. I used some of the “Mechanic in a Bottle” sold at Walmart since only 10% ethanol/reg fuel was available last year. It now starts but only till the primed the fuel runs out. I also noticed there were no fuel lines going down into the tank, just the two connectors near the cap on the inside. Could the lines have disolved or hardened and dropped into the tank? I also noticed the card gasket is two piece, which piece goes on top the thin one or the thick one.

Hello Jim

Please find links below where you can purchase both fuel lines:
