Regularly use a blunt scraper to remove grass and dirt
from the underneath of the guard.
Fitting a new spool of cutting line (fig. G & H)
Replacement spools of cutting line are available from your
Black & Decker dealer (cat. no. A6441). Complete cassettes
containing a spool of cutting line are also available
(cat. no. A6442).
Unplug the tool.
Keep the tabs (17) depressed and remove the spool cover
(18) from the housing (11) (fig. G).
Remove the empty spool (19) from the spool cover.
Remove any dirt and grass from the spool cover and
housing.
Take the new spool and push it onto the boss in the spool
cover. Rotate the spool slightly until it is seated.
Unclip the end of one of the cutting lines and guide the
line into one of the eyelets (20) (fig. H). The line should
protrude approx. 11 cm from the spool cover.
Unclip the end of the other cutting line and guide the line
into the other eyelet. The line should protrude approx.
11 cm from the spool cover.
Align the tabs (17) on the spool cover with the cut outs (21)
in the housing (fig. G).
Push the cover onto the housing until it snaps securely
into place.
Warning! If the cutting lines protrude beyond the trimming
blade (10), cut them off so that they just reach the blade.
Winding new line onto an empty spool (fig. I, J & K)
You may wind new cutting line onto an empty spool.
Replacement packs of cutting line are available from your
Black & Decker dealer (cat. no. A6440).
Remove the empty spool from the tool as described above.
Remove any remaining cutting line from the spool.
First wind new line onto the uppermost part of the spool:
- Feed 2 cm of cutting line into one of the slots in the
upper section of the spool as shown.
- Wind the cutting line onto the spool in the direction of
the arrow. Make sure to wind the line on neatly and in
layers. Do not criss-cross.
- When the wound cutting line reaches the recesses
(23), cut the line.
- Temporarily park the line in the slots (22) on one side
of the spool as shown.
Repeat the above procedure for the second cutting line on
the lower section of the spool. Park the line in the unused
slots (22).
Proceed as described above to fit the spool on the tool.
Do not forget to release the cutting line from the parking
slots (22).
Warning! Only use the appropriate type of Black & Decker
cutting line. Ensure that cutting line is present in both sections
of the spool (fig. K).
Mains plug replacement (U.K. & Ireland only)
If a new mains plug needs to be fitted:
Safely dispose of the old plug.
Connect the brown lead to the live terminal in the new plug.
Connect the blue lead to the neutral terminal.
Warning! No connection is to be made to the earth terminal.
Follow the fitting instructions supplied with good quality plugs.
Recommended fuse: 5 A.

Troubleshooting

If your tool seems not to operate properly, follow the instructions
below. If this does not solve the problem, please contact your
local Black & Decker repair agent.
Warning! Before proceeding, switch off and unplug the tool.
Tool runs slowly
Check that the spool housing can rotate freely.
Carefully clean it if necessary.
Check that the cutting line does not protrude more than
11 cm from the spool housing. If it does, cut it off so that it
just reaches the line trimming blade.
Automatic line feed does not work
Keep the tabs depressed and remove the spool cover
from the housing.
Pull the cutting line until it protrudes 11 cm from the
housing. If insufficient cutting line is left on the spool,
install a new spool of cutting line as instructed above.
Align the tabs on the spool cover with the cut outs in the
housing.
Push the cover onto the housing until it snaps securely
into place.
If the cutting line protrudes beyond the trimming blade,
cut it off so that it just reaches the blade.
If the automatic line feed still does not work or the spool is
jammed, try the following suggestions:
Carefully clean the spool cover and housing.
Remove the spool and check if the lever can move freely.
Remove the spool and unwind the cutting line, then wind it
on neatly again as described above. Replace the spool as
instructed.
