The line keeps coming out because the spool is not locked into the mechanism properly allowing it to spin independently of the machine.

What i mean is the strimmer is out about 4inches when i switch on and after a few seconds it makes a clacking noise and the line is out another 2inches and the more i have it switched on the more it comes out

Check if the line is wound on the correct way round, on auto feed, you need to tap the end, but is the end staying in, not popping out to lock the line
