FL20C Bearing on the Bottom of the Shaft


From: Tim R.

Less than 1 year old and hardly used, this unit seems to have ruined a bearing on the bottom of the shaft, above the string container. This is a two piece unit and when I take it apart the unit runs fine. I put the bottom half back on and it won’t stay running. When I spin the bottom there is alot of resistance in the unit. I bought this unit at Wal-Mart last year 2010 and cannot find the receipt. This is the second one I have bought, the first one the bottom broke right off. Is there a defect on this unit? Thank you.
