Maybe you have not adjusted it properly. There are usually adjusting nuts on both ends to allow shortening and lengthening. Sounds like you have it adjusted too short.

My new homelight leaf blower either revs too much or stops it wont idle it is the cheap model and I cant see any screws for adjustment.

idle should be adjustable , but if it was purchased in the u s of a since 2012 then sorry it's got a C.A.R.B. type carb on it ( google that acronym) and sorry fuel mixtures are not adjustable anymore the clean air folks took care of that for us! I thank them everyday for looking out for us all .

look on top of carb right next to cam that moves when you press throttle down , there you'll see a very small screw that's your idle adjustment

I have a 1999 isuzu rodeo. I got a new throttle position sensor installed by a mechanic, but po121 code still comes up. What could it be?

Take it back

Would appear the vehicle was not kept long
enough & no road test to verify the work done

I bet they just threw a sensor at a code & never tried
to find out why you had the code

Now your out some money & back to the beginning

You got a code,bought the part,asked they install it

Wrong approach & the shop knows that

No attempt to find the problem,just did as you asked

Wrong shop you went to

New crf250r breaks down at high revs since new

Thats not normal. You could get a bike off the show room floor and completely skip the break in period and it would run wide open. If your bike wouldn't rev past quarter throttle there is something wrong. With a blackened silencer and a motor that dies at quarter throttle I'd say you've got a problem with your injection system flooding your motor with fuel. I run 3 warm up and cool down rotations and go ride like normal. After 4 tanks of fuel your bike is more than broken in. If you aren't familiar with the injection system take it to the dealer and get someone to look at it. If you bought it new it should be covered as a manufacture defect.

No cruise control available light comes on, and when this sign appears cant rev the car over 3K rpms driving on highway, going down hill and foot of the pedal light will come off

never heard of this before ,so obviously the cruise control is allowing the throttle to work then when it has a cough it puts engine on limp or slow speed .this vehicle is fly by wire so try changing the sensors on the pedals .Or just put it into dealers because if the correct part isnt known then changing parts willy nilly could cost more than a dealer repair

Our GE Profile Artica refrigerator ice bin broke. It appears that the plastic/metal part that acts as a "screw" to move the ice from the bin to the dispenser broke/ Do they sell replacement bins ?

Hi, and yes they do. You can order one on the Internet, or go to where you bought it or who sells this brand and they can get you one.If no luck with those options, find a appliance parts dealer and be sure you take all of the information on the unit with you. You may be able to order it over the phone, or it may be in stock. Best of Luck, Sincerely,
PS M # S # and so on.

clunking from the tranny has nothing to do with the tps or anything even close to it. you may end up needing a new transmission. my friend has the same car as you and apparently they are notorious for having terrible transmissions.
do a vaccuum test to diagnose the revving properly
