Weedeater Featherlite Started Smoking and Melted Off

Trimmer Started Smoking and Melted Off

From: Robyn S.

I bought a weedeater Featherlite from Walmart in may and only used it 2 times and it started smoking. The bottom thing that holds the string got so hot from the poll it started smoking and melted off. Why did this happen and what can I do to fix it with out buying a new one.

Hi Robyn,
The trimmer string was winded incorrectly or the trimmer had a factory fault. Use your warranty to get a new trimmer if you have only used it twice.
