String Trimmer Line Issue

String Trimmer puts out more and more line as soon as I turn it on. I rewrapped the line twice and that didn't change anything. Not sure what the issue is.

That was my symptom when I initially rewound the line, but did it in the wrong direction. Line goes with the arrow on the spool (but the spool goes against the arrow while winding).

Thanks for the quick reply John. I'll go ahead and rewind the line to make sure I did it correctly.

Rewinding the line worked and my trimmer is working perfectly fine now.

The spool has markings on it, which were not easy to see, so I colored them in with a red Sharpie marker (related thread where pics are posted below too):
