Starter engages but wont turn motor to start.


Starters have a solenoid that engages the starter with the engine when you push the start/run control. If the starter will not turn off once the engine "catches" then there's a problem in the electronics that keeps power to the solenoid and therefore, the starter.
You basically have to trace the wires back from the starter to see where they attach to the control, looking for a cut in the wire that would short it out to the chassis (that's not where it gets power because the chassis is usually ground) but damaged wiring is usually the easiest place to start because if you look carefully, its visible.
If wiring looks good, then go to your starter controller whether keyed or pushbutton or electronic. Even though manufacturers usually leave service issues to local dealers, talking to a tech is free and you may find a good idea there if the ones I gave you take you deeper into the problem without solving it.
The thing is Glenn, be patient and go slowly. Sometimes these electrical issues are tough to diagnose, so keep your eyes open and go step by step. I just finally solved an intermittent starter issue with a 2000 Expedition that took months to diagnose. Take your time and good luck! Chad

Toro s 200 snowthrower electric start when air is cold elec start wont work when warm electric start will work but who needs a snowthrower when its warm electric is a 110 start.....no battery...


Can you hear the motor run when you try to start it when it's cold? If so then it could be in the drive mechanism. I had one that I thought had a bad bendix in the starter. Here it has a rubber disc that turns the starter sprocket. I removed the retainer, took off the sprocket. Cleaned everything and re-assembled, and low and behold it worked. A new starter was over $100.00. Now if yours doesn't even turn when its cold, I'd look into the starter push button, or key switch for bad connection.

M842 chainsaw wont start when hot


I suspect your warm start procedure is the fault, the manual is not correct IMO. Any choke on a warm engine causes flooding, try this, if no better post back or return it for warranty replacement.

Start Procedure
Cold:
  1. Ignition on/off to on.
  2. Set compression release – optional step even if saw is equipped with a compression release.
  3. Pull (close) choke, set fast idle (done when choke closed on some saws); pull starter and listen for an attempt to start. once heard (usually two pulls; no more than 4).
  4. Set compression release – optional step even if saw is equipped with a compression release.
  5. Push (open) choke pull starter until it starts. (usually first pull).
Warm:
  1. Ignition on/off to on.
  2. Set compression release – optional step even if saw is equipped with a compression release.
  3. Pull (close) choke, set fast idle (done when choke closed on some saws) – Do not pull with choke closed.
  4. Push (open) choke, pull starter until it starts. (usually first pull).

Mcculloch 3516 chain saw, does not always start.


It must have spark, fuel and compression to run. Your task is to figure out which is missing.
Sometimes electrical components quit operating once beyond a certain temperature. Does it always start cold and become tempermental when warm?
IMO most hard start problems on a chainsaw with a good fuel delivery system are flooded.
Start Procedure
Cold:
  1. Ignition on/off to on
  2. Set compression release – optional step even if saw is equipped with a compression release
  3. Pull (close) choke, set fast idle (done when choke closed on some saws); pull starter and listen for an attempt to start. once heard (usually two pulls; no more than 4)
  4. Set compression release – optional step even if saw is equipped with a compression release
  5. Push (open) choke pull starter until it starts. (usually first pull)
Warm:
  1. Ignition on/off to on
  2. Set compression release – optional step even if saw is equipped with a compression release
  3. Pull (close) choke, set fast idle (done when choke closed on some saws) - Don’t pull with choke closed.
  4. Push (open) choke, pull starter until it starts. (usually first pull)
The 3516 is a MTD McCulloch (Chinese). These saws are in a class by themselves. Good Luck

Refrigerator area is not maintaining cold, freezer seems fine


The freezer is usually cooled by the compressor, the fridge is then cooled by an evaporator fan motor ($30). If this fan seizes or slows down then the fridge warms up (it sometimes starts squealing before this happens). It could be that your drain hose is clogged or frozen. Maybe the temperature adjuster go bumped.

If you think it is the evaporator fan motor:
Check to be sure you can get a replacement fan first, they last about 4 - 5 years. Can get from a parts supplier or electric motor company.
UNPLUG fridge. Located usually in top of freezer behind a vented cover plate. Remove cover, remove screws holding fan in, may have to cut wires. Replace with new motor, make sure the fan pushes air into the freezer area and doesn't spin backward drawing air from the freezer area.

Husky viprating on tick over and now wont start


I think you are saying it sputters but won't run. Once it attempts to fire open the choke or it may flood. My 359 start:
Cold: pull out choke control, pull starter (usually twice) while listening for attempt to start. Once it fires push choke control in and
continue pulling (usually once more).
Warm: pull out choke control (sets fast idle), push choke control in, pull starter.
Page 19 of my manual.

Once flooded these are a bear to start.

Dryer won't stay on.


lots of questions spring to mind, but if you have a push button type, it will only continue to turn once the motor is in motion. centripetal action allows a motor switch to keep the dryer in operation. look in that area.if you have a belt tentioner. check for continuity.
