Weedeater Featherlite starts well but the spool is not turning

Hello Guys,

I do not know what happened to my Weedeater Featherlite. Today, when I used it to cut the grass it started well but spool failed to turn. I have tried to fix it but after so many attempts, it failed to start. What should I do?



Hi Craig,

There could be two reasons behind this. First, if Weedeater Featherlite has the clutch on its engine. Second, the Weedeater would spin frequently; it uses round flexible wires impressed square on each end that fit into properly into square openings one at an engine & another one at the Weedeater’s head. Therefore, the culprit is either a broken cable or damaged clutch
