3. Remove all the torx screws on handle and separate the handle plastics.
4. Remove upper drive shaft assembly to gain access to the throttle cable and drum connector.
5. Disconnect electrical connections from main body.
6. Remove retaining bolt from throttle cable mount, remove cable from carburetor assembly.

The root cause was the spot welds on the friction pad inside the connecting drum broke loose causing the head not to spin. Throttle cable was frayed at time of inspection so that was replaced as well.
