Craftsman Gasoline Weed Wacker

I have a 25 cc 17 inch cutting path model 358.795591. I am just starting to use it this year and having problems with the coupling. Engine is running fine but it either drives the trimmer at high speed or does not engage. When I disconnect the attachment and tap on it, it works for a while then disengages. Help!!

I would think look at the actual connection at the shaft where the cable drives the attachment and see if you can see something wrong, like the cable not fitting fully into the coupling or wear like the cable is slipping maybe.
