automatic feed not working on my flymo contour 500 strimmer

I purchased an FL289 spool and line some time ago. I need to replace that now but since fitting the last one the automatic feed has not worked. Are you able to suggest any reasons for this? Thankyou

    Check the spool can turn freely on the spindle when the 'ratchet' is released and see the attached video for instructions on replacement.
