I have a WeedEater Featherlite Plus trimmer. I have had it for about three years. It has worked wonderfully well, until the last time I used it, and even then it ran. My problem is that the last time I cranked it, the rope did not retrieve, or get pulled back in to where it is supposed to be. The rope is hanging on the outside of the trimmer (it started when I last pulled the rope, so I could finish my trimming). My question: is there any easy way to fix this or should I take to a repairman (that is what the company's help desk said to do, but they just may want me to spend more money)? If I need to take it to a repairman, wouldn't it be just as cheapto buy a new machine?

Thanks.
