Weed eaters, also referred to as weed trimmers or string trimmers, come equipped with a kill switch. This switch may begin to malfunction after many hours of regular use and eventually fail. When a weed eater kill switch fails, it can be replaced by the owner at minimal cost.

Let the weed eater cool down before attempting to replace the kill switch.

Set the lawn tool on an elevated surface, such as a table or workbench, to avoid having to bend or crouch over to work on the machine.

Locate the wires that supply power to the kill switch on the engine. You may have to remove the spark plug with a ratchet and socket to access the kill switch wires.

Replace the spark plug to finish, if applicable. Start the weed eater and depress the new kill switch to test it.
