There has to be two non-return valves in the system; one before the pump and one after. From your description I suspect the valve on the output side of the pump is absent which means operating the pump will not pump oil but will suck and blow air from oil outlet. Similarly the intake valve might be absent which means oil will be drawn from the reservoir and then pushed back, though in practice a little oil would probably emerge from the exit port. The description of valve tends to conjure images of rather more than the steel ball and possibly tiny spring that usually constitutes the valve, components that are easily displaced, lost, forgotten.

Be sure the spring is not bound up with grass or mud. It has to recoil to push the head down so the line doesn't continue to shoot out.

I have a Ryobi Model RY28040 straight shaft line trimmer. In my case I replaced the complete String Head Assembly that includes the String Head Housing, Spring, and Spool and the string still did not advance. I then discovered that the bolt in the Spool Retainer cap (the red cap that attaches the spool to the shaft) was fused and not moving. The bolt needs to be loose inside the cap in order to allow the spool to move in and out by the spring. I loosened the bolt and fastened the spool back onto the shaft. Fired it up and bumped it a few times and the line began to advance. Turns out I probably only needed to replace the Spool Retainer rather than the String Head Assembly.
