Bought an Echo String Trimmer at Home Depot last year (end of season special), but never used it much. Now, just starting to use it and after about 10 or 15 minutes, the cord quits coming out. When I disassemble the head, I find that the cord has slightly melted to itself which is why it won't come out. I checked the Echo website and it said to put lubricant on the cord. I sprayed some WD40, and it helped a little, but it still melts requiring me to remove the head to separate the cord. Is there something better to use besides WD40? Anybody else have this problem with string trimmers?
