I wound the spool today with new line on my 15" cordless string trimmer. When I try to use it the line comes out without even tapping the ground. It gets long and tangled. I bought the correct line and followed directions when rewinding. What could be wrong?

Wound backwards probably

Is it the rapid reload head or did you have to take the head apart to wind it?

If it is not too rapid reload head, the spool has arrows on it. Wind the string with the arrows.

If it's the rapid reload head then you can only turn the head the correct direction.
