I realize this post is old, but has anyone figured out the real fix? I have had my ONE+ Ryobi trimmer for less than a month, and it is doing the same thing. It began the first day I used it. First thing out of the garage, runs like a champ. After that, if I stop I have to raise the trimmer head in the air to power the trimmer spool. I don't mind really, figure it's some sort of safety thing, start it up in the air away from feet? Would like to know why it's doing this, if anyone has found a fix, and what to do about it It's not the battery, because I have used different batteries and get the same result. High speed, low speed, same result.

This problem is very common with Ryobi products. This company's products are garbage.

Gas weed eaters weigh to much for me; I take care of our lawn and my defibrillator for my heart only allows me to lift a certain weight...it’s far exceeded with a gas trimmer. I loved my gas one but...don’t have a choice. We have 5 acres to mow and a lot of trim around front pastures and the house. Shy of paying $125-150 a week for someone else to do it and trim every 3 weeks at most, I’m stuck trying to get this frigging battery one to work. :|

Some people get a bunch of goats and they take care of the weed problem too.

I know this has already been asked but my battery has 40 v put string back thur the holes it started for 3 sec the nothing then 2 sec then nothing took battery out & back in checked contacts on battery they are perfect.. Contacts on trimmer look good. So, like the others before me
I guess I gotta open up the trimmer check wires from battery& check switch.and if all is well there. Then open up the battery. See if i can see any issues with circut board or connections.
Just wanted to make sure I am not missing any other possibilities. There isnt any reason the trimmer head could cause this intermittent problem well now it not even starting & stopping it just wont start. Thanks guys for any advice you can give me. I will let you all know if i find anything when i open it up
