Tool Type:
Trimmer
Parts Used:
Spool Retainer - 530401957
Spool W/Line - 952711551
Repair Difficulty:
Easy
Time Spent Repairing:
Less than 15 minutes
Tools Used:
Pliers
Retainer snapped and spool was worn.
This is a very simple fix that took about a minute or less to perform. Pinch the "Retainer Clip" together and pull straight out. Replace with the new clip, attach spool and get trimming.

** If the Retainer Clip shears off in the drive shaft, use a small standard (Flat Head) screw driver and work the clip out from one side. Once enough of the clip is exposed, use a pair of needle nosed pliers and remove the clip. Replace it with a new one and get back to work!

The retainer spring had broken and needed to be replaced.
I removed the cutting spool and pulled the broken spring out. The new spring went back where the broken one had been. The string trimmer now works as it should. The other parts are spares for down the road repairs.

Electric Weed Eater spool retainer clip broke.
1. Looked up the part on your internet page to see how the spring fit into the shaft coupler.
2. Pried old retaining ears on the clip out of their grooves with two really small screwdrivers and pulled out the clip with needle nose pliers.
3. After seeing I could get the old part out and replace the broken clip I went to your site and ordered a new one.
4. The part came in the mail after only a couple days. Service was fast.
5. Put the new part in the shaft coupler and snapped it into place.
6. Put the spool of the string back on the trimmer and resumed trimming.
7. Easy, fast and cheap repair.

The retainer broke while I was running and I lost the spring and the retainer.
I replaced the spring with the new one and the retainer with the new one. I used the new spool because I felt like possibly that was the problem to start with. The repair was easy and quick.

Spool line bottom cap missing
Once the repair parts were received, it was just a matter of using a small standard blade screwdriver to push the two locking tabs of the spool retainer inward, then grasping the retainer with pliers and removing the old spool retainer then the return spring...

With the old spool retainer and return spring removed it was just a simple matter of placing the new return spring in place, then pushing the new spool retainer into place using the small screwdriver again to insure the two spool retainer locking tabs snapped into their respective locking slots by gently pressing on them from the inside of the spool retainer into the locking slot...

The whole operation took place in less than 5 minutes...!
