rotate the starter pulley by hand. You should feel the spring getting tight. Once the pulley is slightly tensioned, usually 5-10 turns, release the pulley and let is pull the string onto the pulley. You may have to add some tension to get all the rope to wind on the pulley.

Do you mean that the string keeps feeding as you try to operate the trimmer?

If so, you are winding the string on the spool the wrong way. Put the string on the spool in a clockwise direction. This should do it.

SOURCE: Replacing the cutting head on Ryobi string trimmer.

There is a nut above the head, place a wrench on the nut then unscrew the head from the shaft, unless yours is different from mine this is how it works. I hope this helps.

Hi,
The plug that I have in my 720r is a Champion RDJ7Y. Can I suggest that you pull the old plug out and look to see which one you have? Also when you buy the new replacement it should already be gapped for what you need.
Good luck!

Repair manual for ryobi line trimmer rlt900


Jerry,

That number is not the model number for the trimmer, which always starts with RY. It is the number for the "bump head assembly" which is considered an accessory. They made 3 for this application as follows:
  • Bump Head Assembly, RLT1000, RLT900, RLT1004K
Once you determine your correct trimmer model number you can go to the link below and find your manual. Hope this helps.

Starting up Ryobi Petrol Strimmer


full choke on , push petrol bubble 5 times then pull starter cord., with luck it will kick in to life after a 20/30 secs put on half choke , run again for 30 secs the no ckoke.

The main problem with Ryobi products is that they flood very very easly. So the more time you try and pump petrol into the carb the more it will flood . If that happenes then choke off and switch off and then just pull starter cord for about 30 secs then switch on and it could start if not prime it again as above good luck

'Bump' the strimmer line unit on the ground (this is how it releases the line)-It sometimes gets stuck(welded to the sides if the release chamber-it gets hot and melts)-
