  • K 750 Question

    I recently aquired a used K 750. When I got it there was about 10' of cable hanging out of it. When I plugged it in I found the motor and foot pad work but I cannot get the cable to feed or retract. It feels like it's snagged in the feed tube.

    Any suggestions on how to get the cable out so I can oil it and re-feed it back in the drum?

    Thanks,

    Brian

    It Sounds Like The Cable May Be Turned In The Drum, You Would Need To Take Drum Apart, To Correct This Look At Ridgid Tool Breakdown To Find Out How To Remove Drum And To Breakdown The Drum; You May Have To Buy A New Cable???

      brian, i would start off removing the auto feed by unscrewing the 5/8'' bolt that secures it in front. then you should be able to look inside the drum easier. i would think that the cable has flipped on you. then you wcan remove the entire drum by unscrewing the nut that secures the drum and torque tube. just be careful when you attempt to remove the cable as there could be 100' of tight wound cable ready to jump out at you.

      maybe a good photo will help out too. also look up the parts breakdown on the support section at the top of this forum.

        Thanks for the quick responses. I finally figured it out. I believe when the last person to use the machine when spooling in the cable let it go into the drum loose and it roll on itself. My Son and I finally got the cable out of the drum stretched down the driveway, oiled down and re-spooled. I hand spooled most of it and use the auto feed for about the last 25' or so. All seems to work well.

        Again thanks for the help.
