What is happening is the 2nd part of the easy feed head is upside down. The black inside spinner is what I am speaking of, when you remove the cap with the spring on it. The inside spinner has a L on one side and flip it over, a R on the other side. The R is what goes into the head ( facing the sky when in motion) the L should be facing the ground when in motion, so long as this is done properly, load the head when sealed with 10 ft of line, and turn on the trimmer. It will hold the line and release when bumped. God bless !

@weedeater, EMMA, The stringers head may not have the string wrapped properly onto it. Remove all the string and replace the nylon line with appropriate/compatible line and try. If this does not do the trick disassemble the string spool head and check for dirt/debri(clean head) check for damage, rethread and try. If still no go the head must be damaged/worn and will have to be replaced. If still under warranty, use warranty for repaired/replaced/refund. Below 1st link is a video to show how to restring head on Echo Speed Feed head, 2nd link is for generic type Echo head, 3rd link is Echo SRM-225 Trimmer manual. Good luck. I hope this helped you out, if so let me know by pressing the helpful button.
