MAINTENANCE
Your Black & Decker tool has been designed to
operate over a long period of time with a
minimum of maintenance. Continuous satisfactory
operation depends upon proper tool care and
regular cleaning.
Before performing any maintenance,
switch off and unplug the tool.
Regularly clean the ventilation slots in your tool
x
using a soft brush or dry cloth.
Regularly clean the cutting line and spool
x
using a soft brush or dry cloth.
Regularly use a blunt scraper to remove grass
x
and dirt from the underneath of the guard.
Do not use any abrasive or solvent-based
cleaner.
Fitting a new spool of cutting line (fig. D)
Replacement spools of cutting line are available
from your Black & Decker dealer (cat. no. A6481).
Unplug the tool.
x
Keep the tabs (11) depressed and remove the
x
spool cover (12) from the housing (7).
Remove the empty spool (13) from the housing.
x
Remove any dirt and grass from the housing.
x
Take the new spool and unwind approx.
x
9 cm of cutting line.
Feed the cutting line through the eyelet (14).
x
Push the spool onto the drive shaft (15) and
x
rotate it slightly until it is seated. Make sure
that the cutting line is not trapped under the
spool and that 9 cm of cutting line protrudes
from the housing.
Align the tabs on the spool cover with the
x
holes in the housing.
Push the cover onto the housing until it snaps
x
securely into place.
If the cutting line protrudes beyond the
trimming blade (6), cut it off so that it just
reaches the blade.
Winding new line onto an empty spool (fig. E)
You may wind new cutting line onto an empty
spool. Replacement packs of cutting line are
available from your Black & Decker dealer
(cat. no. A6170 (25 m), A6171 (40 m)).
Remove the empty spool from the tool as
x
described above.
Remove any old cutting line from the spool.
x
Feed 2 cm of cutting line into one of the holes
x
(16) in the spool as shown.
Bend the cutting line and anchor it in the
x
L-shaped slot (17).
Wind the cutting line onto the spool in the
x
direction of the arrow (18). Make sure to wind
the line on neatly and in layers.
Do not criss-cross.
When the wound cutting line reaches the
x
recesses (19), cut the line. Let the line protrude
approx. 9 cm from the spool and hold a finger
on the line to keep it in place.
Proceed as described above to fit the spool on
x
the tool.
Only use round 1.5 mm diameter
Black & Decker cutting line. Do not use
Reflex Plus twisted cutting line. The use of
an incorrect type of cutting line can damage
the auto feed mechanism and will void the
warranty.
