Hey Jay906,
USE ONLY .080 inch (2.0 mm) DIAMETER ROUND NYLON MONO FILAMENT LINE. Do not use serrated or heavier gauge line, as they will overload the motor and cause overheating.

Answer: 
Hi Jay906.
Thank you for your question.
The manufacturer specs call for a .80 line. It does not mater if it is triangle or round, as long as it is a .80 line. The thicker the line, the heavier it is.
It is the weight that is the issue. The .80 triangular line should work just fine.

your owner's manual give two line sizes. On page 26 in Spanish, it says to use a .065 line. On the front page in English, it says to use a .080 line. Could you please clear this up?

Answer: 
Your model GH 3000 uses the .080 line or the SF 080 spool.
The .065 line and the AF 100 spool on the Spanish page is a typo. Neither are listed for your trimmer.

Answer: 
If you have fuses in your home, you may want to consider having an electrician changing to breakers! Many insurance companies require it.
Breakers reset by turning them off, then on. When they trip, they appear in the half way position.The blown fuse (or tripped circuit breaker) usually shuts off other things in the house too. Look for a tripped GFCI receptacle in that circuit and press reset button.

Look for a tripped GFCI receptacle in that circuit and press reset button. GFCI circuits trip with faults to ground. Laying a cord in wet areas can produce this situation.
Check the cord length chart in manual, this will avoid overheating and burning out the motor. Black and Decker recommends having the trimmer serviced by an authorized service center. Check the cord first. .

Answer: 
Hi swainer,
This Black & Decker GH3000 does not have an on board fuse.
You may have tripped a GFCI breaker in your home. Test the unit in another power source.
If your unit failed during the warranty period, simply return it to the place of purchase for a replacement.
I'm sorry that you experienced this problem.
Thank you for visiting our site.

CUSTOMER REVIEWS

Rated 3.4 out of 5 by 154 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by LINE HOG NOT Grass Hog I own a Toro line trimmer that was giving me fits with line breakage and having to rewind the spool all the time. I looked at a number of electric trimmers and landed on the GH3000. However, many of the reviews indicated that it was a LINE HOG. So, I did some research and found a way to significantly reduce this problem. I really like this trimmer as the motor is in the handle and, with the right type of line, does my yard with less than a yard of trimmer line. I recommend this to anyone who has a moderate size yard but want a more powerful trimmer... using the trimmer line I found that works. The link below will detail the type of line you need to purchase at Home Depot to save you time and money June 21, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Snap to Assemble and Use This was a replacement for another brand that bit the dust the other day. Went with this one base on Consumer Reports recommendation. About ten minutes and it was out of the box, assembled, and I finished my undone trimming. Feels light yet sturdy. Especially like the telescoping shaft and supporting wheel to make edging easier and more uniform. June 19, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Waste of money Line feed issues right out of the box with less than 1/4 of the factory included spool of line used. What should have been a 10 minute job became a fight loading and reloading the line spool. Tossed it straight to the curb for trash pickup, as it turns out replacement spools are expensive ~9-10 bucks and bulk .080 line is difficult to find in my area. My advice, spend a little more for a higher quality trimmer. June 11, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Failed on the second use. The product worked fine for the first use (about 10 minutes). On the second use, it failed to feed line. I opened the spool and checked it, rewound it in a nice, tight, even fashion, and it still would not feed. I usually avoid Black and Decker, but decided to give them a chance because of the good reviews and the fact that it is hard to find a corded trimmer by any other manufacturer. No B&D for me. June 8, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Awesome weed wacker! This weed wacker was an awesome machine. It is very durable and cuts well. It has a big plastic guard so the grass and dirt do not fly up and hurt your legs of your face. I purchased this after my Worx weed wacker broke down. My favorite power tool brand is Black & Decker, so I could trust this to do a good job trimming & edging. I also own the Black & Decker leaf hog BV2500 and The Black & Decker EM1700 lawn mower. Both are also great tools. June 1, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by weedeater doing ok but has noise like bearing noise going bad. will wait to develop June 14, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good Trimmer Just returned a cordless unit after going through 2 batteries and not finishing my project. Found this one, took a chance since I have the Edger from B&D already and i am very pleased with all aspects of this unit. June 19, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Does a fine job edging! The product is easy to assemble and use. Even when the line broke, it was simple to extend new line. It worked great - my first edge trimmer. June 14, 2016
