I had the same problem today. Store told me part 71 85740991 would work.
It does not have same shaft to attach. The original has a plastic head which
melts with use and will not work. I feel it is a defective device. They have a replacement part that does work for a while and does the same thing. Sears
should provide a proper head. A higher priced machine has a proper head.
I would like to by the better shaft and head which I think would fit this machine
but am told you can'[t buy. I'm very discouraged with them. Then engine runs fine.
If you find a solution I would like to hear from you. Thank you.

I am not finding your trimmer right off the bat but, these units have a drive cable in them joined with plastic couplings. More than likely you have a rounded out coupling and/or a broken cable. You have to make sure, however, that the shafts are joined together all the way to make sure the cable can engage the coupling, Loosen the knob on the shaft and separate the two pieces, see if the cable spins when you run the trimmer. If it spins without lower end on, try putting back togrther and see what happens. If the cable was spinning when apart, the problem is in the lower half.

pull off string housing check that all parts are there. run machine and see if shaft is turning-- if it is then put housing back on sometimes I havent put the housing on properly. if shaft is not turning. then repair is needed. or just buy a new one. cost of repairs on this stuff is not worth the cost. unless it's a profesional grade machine..
