How the automatic line feed works (M)
1. When initially switching on the trimmer, a small length
of line is fed out.
2. A ‘clattering’ noise will be heard when the nylon line hits
the line cutter. DO NOT BE ALARMED this is quite
normal. After approximately 5 seconds the line will be
cut to the correct length and the noise will reduce as
the motor reaches full speed.
• Make sure the motor is up to full speed before trimming.
3. If the noise of the nylon line being cut cannot be heard,
more line will need to be fed out.
4. To feed more line, it is first necessary to to allow the
motor to stop completely, then re-start, allowing the
motor to reach full speed.
5. Repeat step 4. until you hear the line hitting against the cutter. (Do not repeat this procedure more than 6 times)
6. If problems are experienced with the automatic line
feed refer to Fault Finding Chart.
To manually feed the nylon line (N)
1. If required line can be fed out manually.
2. To operate, press and release manual line feed button,
whilst gently pulling on one of the lines until the line
reaches the line cutter.
3. When the required amount of line is fed out, gently pull
on the second line (there is no need to press the manual line feed button again).
4. If the line extends past the line cutter, too much line
has been fed out.
5. If too much line is fed out, remove the spool cap and click
spool anti-clockwise until the line is at the desired length.
To remove spool cap
1. Press and hold in the two cap release latches. (P).
2. Pull cap away from the spoolholder. (P).
When refitting the spool cap
1. Keep all areas of the cap and spoolholder clean.
Failure to do so may prevent the cap being securely
located in the spoolholder.
2. Replace the cap, pressing firmly DOWN towards the
spoolholder to ensure cap is fully located.
3. Check that the cap is correctly fitted by trying to remove
it without depressing the two latches.
To replace nylon line.
For your convenience it is recommended you buy spool and
line complete. Nylon line only is also available. Both are
available from Electrolux Outdoor Products stockists.
To fit spool and line complete:
1. Remove old spool.
2. Place new spool into spoolholder with cut out areas of
the spool in line with eyelets as shown in figure Q.
3. Release one line from cleat and feed line through eyelet (Q).
4. Repeat for second line.
• Ensure spool is fully located by gently rotating it during
fitment, whilst keeping the spoolholder steady.
5. Refit the cap.
To fit nylon line only:
• Remember ! Your Flymo Trimmer is designed to use
only nylon line with a maximum diameter of 1.5mm.
Use only genuine Flymo nylon line.
1. IMPORTANT - Always wind the line onto the upper
section of the spool first.
Take approximately 5 metres of line. Insert 15mm of
line into one of the holes in the upper section of the
spool (R) and wind line in the direction of the arrows on
the top of the spool. Leave approximately 100mm of
line unwound and place into cleat as illustrated in figure
R. Repeat on lower section of spool.
2. Care should be taken to ensure that the line is neatly
coiled on the spool. Failure to do so will impair the efficiency of the automatic line feed.
3. Then fit spool as described in ‘To fit spool and line
complete’, section above.
