Take the spark plug out and try it. Did you run it without oil mixed in the gas?

Angry weed eater string breaks immediately

When I press the button to start my electric weed eater, after about 1 - 2 seconds, the string breaks off at the little hole where it comes out from the spool. It looks burned and jagged. I noticed the little hole is enlarged and jagged. Would it help to file this little hole to smooth the edges? Has anyone else had this problem. It worked fine until recently. Thanks for any help.
