SOURCE: 2001 twin carb R1 i had smoke coming from under the seat

Sounds like the rectifier has gone bad, overcharging the battery and cooking wires. Your best bet here is to take it to a dealer rather than risking putting in new parts then frying them the first time you ride the bike again.

SOURCE: My 1989 Fzr 600 wont hold a charge. will run for

Sounds like your regulator/rectifier is faulty....but it could also indicate an alternator problem. Don't run the bike or it will eventually hurt your battery and/or your alternator (if it hasn't already.)

The wire currents, voltages, etc needs to be checked (from the alternator AND from the rectifier) so I recommend you take the bike to a mechanic unless you have a multimeter and shop manual handy.

I've found Yamaha wiring connections to be slightly weak....and sometimes lead to the premature death of the reg.rectifier. Solution was to 'solder' the connections instead.

Good luck with the FZR.

SOURCE: my keeway hurricane 50cc suddenly started smoking terribly bad

This may be to the automatic oiler that mixes the oil with the gas. I have a oiler on my 50cc Yamaha Zuma.

I replace a ignitor on my stove to a new one but it smoke why


Not Enough Information. If an electrical box smokes obviously that means the electronics are severely damaged. We stock dozens of ignition assemblies and they do not smoke. Are you referring to the grill smoking? An electrical box cannot smoke unless it is fried or is on fire. If the stove is smoking you need to clean it and/or burn it off. smoke is caused by grease.

Intermittent steams of smoke coming from steering colulm


Use hand signals until this is fixed. Possibly contact your car insurance about Electrical fire and comprehensive coverage. A fuse should have broke before the column smoked, there is nothing preventing a fire now.

They should want to fix this before the whole car burns up.

Masterbuilt Smokehouse model 20070712 won't smoke wood chips at 225 degrees


I had this exact same problem with my Masterbuilt Smokehouse even when brand new. I notice there is some variability in the space between the top surface of the heating element and the bottom surface of the wood chip box. I measured about 1/4 inch between the two surfaces when the heating element was seated bottomed out and touching the wire grill below it. What I did to fix the problem was to gently (make sure everything is completely cold before doing this) lift up the end of the heating element farthest away from where it enters the enclosure just a little bit so that when you put the woodchip box in where it is supposed to go, the top surface of the heating element will now be in contact with the bottom surface of the woodchip box. This arrangement allows much greater heat to heat the wood chips during the part of the heating cycle when the heating element is on (naturally the heating element cycles on and off to regulate whatever temperature your are targeting for your food being cooked). Now, because of this contact, every time the heating element comes on, enough heat will enter the woodchip box to keep the chips ignited. My next step is I am going to put a small 1/4 inch thick piece of metal beneath the heating element and the rack that is under it to force the heating element to stay sitting 1/4 inch higher so that it is always in contact with the lower surface of the woodchip box. Making these improvements allowed me to continuously get smoke when the big smoke box was at 225 degrees F.
Without making this fix, the unit would stop producing smoke at 225. Hope this makes sense and helps you.

2000 Blazer. No power to the orange wire for either front seat. Which fuse or relay controls the frt power seats? Its not listed on the fuse box covers and I do not have an owners manual.


The orange wire is the power wire for both seats.It gets its power from the power seat circuit braker (20 amp) located at the body relay block.It is located behind left side of dash near fuse block. Remove circuit braker and check for power in body relay cavity that you pulled the relay out of if power is on one side change circuit braker and if no power on either side then you have a bad main fuse near battery or under hood in main fuse block.
