Bought a brand new troy bilt replacement bump head (red head w/black bumper). Inserted new line according to instructions, but bumper spins freely when I try to wind up the line. No matter which way I turn it. No clicking sound.

Hello, is there a spring inside the head?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No. I don't think so. It's doesn't come apart. It says only certified/authorized Troy Bilt folks should try to take it apart.
