Tiller stops working after 5 minutes. I have taken it to the repair shop and they cleaned the filter. It works fine, then just quits. The motor feels very hot to the touch. It will not start again for...

You didn't mention engine type/model. HOWEVER if it is a Techumeseauh either change the engine to a different brand or find the nearest garage sale and sell it cheap on consignment. TECH. is famous for this as I have (and never will go back - I actually run) because of there carberator design (ps - I am more then just a chore boy - actually a electrical/mechaical/fluids eng.). It seems the way they vaccum the fuel thru their orfices - even one micro-dot of trash in the fuel does it in. Two things that help - use a fuel that has a 89% oct and preferrably none that has ethanaol (10% ethan seems OK in B&S engines). Some of the farm type sations like CENEX (not an owner in it) sells this gas.

Good luck.

(ps: like I said chg the eng if can afford to something other - It took a few lawn mowers, etc. to convince me that TECH is nothing but trouble. Also ready horror stories from other users on other blogs/forums if you don't want to believe me).

Drive my car for so long it cuts off,let it sit a while it cuts back on,sitting at a light it idles really high and comes back dow really low

I had a Shelby GLHS that did the same thing.
It turned out to be the fuel pump. It did not completely quit working so it would work for a while and then loose pressure. No guarantee but it may be worth looking into. This could actually be a number of things. Need more info.

Good luck!

Error 3, paper jam

use an antistatic vaccum or canned compressed air to clean the interior of the printer.this problem may cause by dust and debris inside the printer.inspect for any broken part in the paper path.if u find any u will have to investigate repairing or replacing the printer.
try using different weight paper .some printers work best with the particular weight of paper and if you use paper too thick or too thin jams can usually occur.thanks

Left front window isn't working

9 out of 10 times it's the actual motor itself. These things are common to wear out. Best to find another motor on ebay. I've had great luck. Not bad to replace but a little time consuming. I feel this is something you can handle yourself. One suggestion. Before boltling in new motor, ensure it works properly before fully installing. Little tricky, but window alignment is not too bad if you have the patience. Hope this helps.

All keys in keyboard r no working

You can try but may be pure luck if it works: Cleaning the Keyboard with Vaccum Cleaner and blower. Also use a wet cloth and wet brush to clean it. Then dry it before use.

Power off PC and then Press all keys with both hands and then power on, have a try for Keyboard.

Otherwise it is the time to go for a new one, I would recommend to use a TVS gold keyboard having punching noise on it (similar to typewriter) than using a Multimedia keyboard (of soft keys press).

Since the former are repairable and the latter are not.
