    Yes I'm fine. Thank you for asking. The only damage was handle bar dented the tank and the left turn signal was broken. Starter kicks but does not fire.

    Hi and welcome to FixYa,

    With the indulgence of bunnydawg, glad to hear that you're ok. A couple of additional ideas to consider/check:

    • spark at the plugs when cranking;

    • presence/absence of fuel at the carb drain (if US version);

    • fuel overflow (if US version);

    • presence/absence of IGN+12 & pulsating voltage at the injectors (if Euro version) when cranking.
    Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.

Sounds like you just flooded it real good, try cranking for a little while until it finally starts then just be easy on the gas til she clears out

Newly laid cement driveway puddles and top brushes up

By puddling, do you mean water stands on it in spots? And, do you mean by top brushing up that the concrete top layer is flaking off. If so, water puddles where there are low spots and flaking is generally due to over working the top of the concrete as it is being finished. Some poor contractors have also been known to sprinkle cement on top of concrete to make it look like it has been finished better. When this happens it will pop lose and flake off.

My sanyo SR 4310w fridge won't work after laying it on it's side.

Try standing it upside down for about an hour. Fridges have oil in with the Freon to lubricate the compressor and if laid on it's side the oil can drain through the tubing all into a spot that doesn't lubricate or over fill the compressor depending on which side it is laid on. sometimes the remedy is to reverse the process that caused the condition, specially the compressor having too much oil. it is a slow drain back so give it some time and it usually works.

I purchased a 550 series mower last year. It worked great. I used it a week ago and it worked great. Took it out today and it starts right up but won't run for morethan 5 seconds....starts right up...

Hi, remove the bowl off the bottom of the carby and clean it out. My best guess at this stage is that you have water in the bowl. Hope this helps, regards Phil.

AC just hums and fan does not blow after taking it out for window repair. a lot of water was drained from the unit. was laid on its side...

Hi, sounds like the fan motor was the reason it was taken out to replace. If the unit was laid on its side, you have lost the compressor.Its humming because its trying to start but goes off on internal overload. Once they are laid on there side, they are pretty much done for. Sometimes if you no before hand, you can wait for 24 to 48 or more hours before you start it, and may get lucky and it will start. Not in your case I am sorry to say. The water was condensation that had built up and had not drained off. You are probably going to be better off looking into another unit. This would cost you many $$$$ to repair. I really wish I could help you save it, I do. I hope I have been some help to you on this when it comes time to rate me. There just isn't a lot you can do.

Fuel problem

You have carburetor issues my friend, take those things apart and clean them. Probably time to rebuild them if they have never been apart yet.
