I accidently turned the throttle stop knob a few turns on my 2008 honda vtx1300 retro,,can't remember how many though, but did not touch the pilot screw...when I started my cycle the idle was high and I turned the throttle stop knob to where the idle was I think like it was prior to me screwing up and turning it...will I do damage to the cycle if this throttle stop knob is more or less than the 900 plus minus 100 for idle speed...if I need to use tools what do you suggest and where can I purchase them or it...thanks steve

Re: I accidently turned the throttle stop knob a few...
You don't have to keep it at the factory setting, it's one of those things you're allowed to adjust as you please, for the most part. If it's pretty close to where you had it before, it'll be fine. You don't want the idle too low, though... that could cause oil starvation problems.

Turn the ignition off and then start the engine to verify the indicator has been reset.

Turn the ignition switch to the ON (II) position.
Press the select/reset knob repeatedly until the engine oil life is displayed.
Press the select/reset knob for about 10 seconds. The engine oil life and the maintenance item code(s) will blink.
Press the select/reset knob for another 5 seconds. The maintenance item code(s) will disappear, and the engine oil life will reset to 100.

It sounds like you have electronic ignition for your burner and not a gas pilot. If it's an electric water heater than the problem is probably similar. There is a small transformer that interfaces with the knob that controls the water temperature. Sometimes they need a reset. Turn off the breaker , wait a few seconds, and than turn back on. If it's a gas pilot type it still has a transformer but the breaker trick may not be the solution...though it doesn't hurt to try. If this is the case you may need to relight the pilot. Follow the instructions located normally just above the water temperature control knob
Hi, Anonymous it should be noted that the "AIR FUEL" mixture screw adjustment "ONLY" manages your idle and has no effect on any other circuit also any intake leaks must be repaired before the A/F adjustment procedure can be performed otherwise you will never obtain a proper idle and you will waste a lot of time chasing the impossible. The A/F mixture screw's purpose is to fine tune the fuel charge entering the combustion chamber. The following applies to both 2 and 4 stroke engines:
1. The mixture screw may be sealed at the factory with a Welch Plug please review the following video for removal. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wAXcksgvDkM
2. The mixture screw manages a range of 3 complete 360-degree counterclockwise turns from the bottom/closed position.
3. The mixture screw should have a spring and o-ring for tension and sealing integrity.
4. Turn the mixture screw clockwise until it gently bottoms out, this makes the fuel charge very lean and the engine should not idle if it does then the pilot/idle jet is too big and needs to be replaced with the next size smaller.
5. Turn the mixture screw 1 and 1/2 turns counterclockwise to establish a baseline for starting the engine.
6. To fine-tune the idle circuit, adjust the mixture screw 1/4 turn in or out to achieve maximum idle RPM, wait 15 seconds between each adjustment for the idle to settle.
7. Never go past 3 full turns out this will make the fuel charge rich, foul plugs, and produce black smoke out of the exhaust, if the engine RPM keeps increasing past 3 turns the pilot/idle jet is too small and needs to be replaced with the next size larger.
8. After achieving maximum idle back out the mixture screw another 1/8 of a turn then adjust the throttle cable idle stop screw to 950-1050 RPM.
9. This procedure works great on 99% of all engines, for the 1% that demand a more robust throttle response on aftermarket monster fuel delivery systems additional tweaking outside the box may be necessary.

Turn the control valve to the PILOT position and push down and hold it in. Press the Ignitor Button and continue to hold the Control knob down, once the pilot lights. Wait one minute, release the Control Knob and if the pilot remains burning, turn the Control Knob counterclockwise to the ON Position. If after the burners light and burn for a few minutes, you can turn the Control Knob back (Clockwise) to the Pilot position (if you don't want the heater to come on automatically) and the pilot should remain lit.
It could be several things: Is the Control Knob turned from Pilot to ON? If that is the case, wait a few minutes after turning it to ON. That will allow the Thermopile to heat up sufficiently. Be sure the flame is touching the Thermopile. If everything looks correct turn up your Thermostat to higher than the ambient room temperature and see if the burners light. Remember to turn your Wall Thermostat down to the lowest temperature setting before turning the knob from Pilot to ON.
FYI - That Wall Furnace does not have a Thermocouple. It uses a Thermopile instead to generate millivolts of electricity to open the gas valve and maintain the pilot flame.
If it is the Thermopile, you can order it directly from Empire Comfort Systems, as well as download your Owners Manual at www.empirecomfort.com

1. Turn the ignition ON. 2. Press the Select/Reset knob until the engine oil life indicator is displayed. 3. Press the Select/Reset knob for more than 10 seconds. The engine oil life and maintenance item code(s) will blink. 4. Press the Select/Reset knob for another 5 seconds. The maintenance item code(s) will disappear, and the engine oil life will reset to "100".
