The trimmer string is used up each time I run the trimmer.

Trimmer String runs out each time I use the weed whacker.  I'm not bumping the string and seems to unwind itself.  I got about 45 minutes of weed whacking done and then ran out of string.  Is this normal?

That doesn't sound normal. Which string trimmer do you have? Also, be sure you are winding new string in the correct direction when putting in new string.
