I already have the manual that you refered to. It is the instruction manual for setting up and opeerating the trimmer and edger. There is no info on replacing a damaged cutting head. Thank you for your response..

Thank you for your question.

I will be happy to assist you with replacing the line in your trimmer. I posted an image below that contains the instructions for replacing the line. Just click on the image to enlarge it. Once you have the cap removed, take the spool out, and remove any remaining line. Then wind new line around the spool. Before installing the spool clean out any debris from the area where the spool goes. After you have it cleaned, reassemble the trimmer in the reverse order.

I hope this is helpful. Please let me know if you need further assistance.

Thank you for using Manage my life. Mark

The problem is not the replacing of the line in my trimmer. The problem is how do you replace a damaged cutting head assembly on a worx wg113 grass trimmer? Do you need special tool to remove the old cutting head?

Terence ,

I am sorry I misunderstood your question. To remove the upper portion of the cutter head you need to remove the spool as if you were going to replace the line. Then hold the upper portion of the head with one hand. Next use a socket and ratchet to remove the nut inside of the head. I posted an image below to aid in the repair. If this does not match your model please reply below with an image of inside the head.

Thank you for using Manage My Life! Mark T.

Mark T, My trimmers head has the nut (63) inbeded inside of part (62) with threads coming up thru the center of it. When I try to unscrew the head (62) off the threaded shaft , the shaft turns with the head. There is no place to hold on to the shaft to keep it from turning without taking the unit apart to get to the shaft. There is no way to get a socket down inside of the head to get a hold of the nut. I have the replacement part and the nut is inbeded inside of the head. The info you supplied has helped. I just need to find out how to hold the shaft while I remove the head.

I am going to contact the manufacture to see if there is a trick to removing the head. The only way I see is to take the motor apart first. Then hold the armature by hand. I will post what I find out. Mark T.

Mark T I figured out how to remove the cutting head. since the old one was not going to be used anymore my friend Scott came up with the idea to use a small air grinder to cut the plastic surrounding the nut that holds the head on the shaft. Once we removed the plastic surrounding the nut we were able to unscrew the nut and remove the head. putting the replacement head was so easy. We only had to turn the head until it started to turn the shaft. There is no need to hold the shaft to tighten it anymore because of its design. I put the cover on it and turned on the trimmer and bumped the head on the ground like you would to feed string. (Inspecting the shaft after removing the head we saw that to hold the shaft and unscrew the head off could have only be done by disassembling the motor casing.)The replacement cutting head assembly has the eyelets in the cap which will eliminate ever having to do this again. Thank you Mark T. for your help. Trimmer is working like new.

Terence,

Thank you for posting how you removed the head. I am sure other users will find this information useful. I was still waiting for a reply from the manufacturer. Sometimes they take longer than we like.

Thank you for using Manage my life. Mark.
