Black and Decker GH600 Spool cap and Spool Keep Popping Off

Hey, everyone. I'm new to the forum so you may have to bare with me. Apologies.

I have a B&D GH600 that has worked great for at least the last 2 seasons. All of the sudden today it started spitting line and then immediately popping off the spool cap and spool. Everything *seems* to be in order, so I'm at a loss. Any help would be MUCH appreciated.

UPDATE: It seems like the spool cap can be pulled right off without depressing the tabs. Could that be the sole problem, or is it just a jumping off problem before replacing other parts?

Install the cap and try to hand pull it off, what happens?
Pops off, then try bending the tabs out to see if it locks.

Check for dirt and debris caked up in the cap and under the spool in the cup area.

As many times as I looked at it, I must have had a brain fart and missed this. Thanks, will update after checking.
