One of my Bose 601 speakers has developed a mid freq buzzing at volume. Ant ideas?

Yep, if it is a scratchy sort of sound, the units coil has overheated, the voice coils insulation has bubbled and expanded, and is now rubbing against the magnet as it moves. Only fix is to replace the driver. U can confirm by moving the inner circle of the cone in and out of the magnet. Should not rub and be perfectly centered around the magnet.

A vibration sort of sound can be caused by loose screws holding down the driver. But that is usually the case on your large heavy drivers with large excursions, not a mid range speaker.

97 civic wont crank or start in hot weather

Could be the battery or the starter. I would expect you to know if it was the battery so I'll comment on the starter. Not often, but sometimes the clearance between the starter armature and the magnet is so close that a little wear on the bearings will cause the armature to rub against the magnetic coil around it. This normally is first noticed when the car is hot. The armature has expanded from the heat and is touching the magnetic coil. This causes a very high amperage draw on the battery often to the point where the engine will not turn over.. When the car cools down, it works.. Bottom line - you may need a started.

I have a Toro Super Recycler Mdl 20033 ser 230000001 and up. Lawn mower will not start, there is no spark. New spark plug and fuel line. Change the magneto? Is this simple?

You may not need to change the ignition module. The "air-gap" on it may just need to be adjusted. That is, the distance between the pickup legs of the ignition module and the magnets integrated into the flywheel. You would have to remove the exterior cover and any sheet metal cowling (directs air flow off the flywheel around the engines cylinder). Then, the coil and flywheel should be visible. I use a standard business card as a gauge. Slide it between the coil legs and the magnet area of the flywheel. You should feel just a slight little rub. If it won't slide or the gap is large, no spark will be produced. You will have to loosen the screws holding the coil in place, double up the card. let the magnets pull the legs in against the card with magnets behind and retighten. Then recheck for spark. Post back if needed.

No spark, when you shake the fly wheel there is somthing moving inside. does that mean its bad?

Other than rotating in a circle, the flywheel should be rock solid when lifted up and down and left and right. It sounds like the crank bearings are bad. This can (if bad enough) cause the magnets on the flywheel to rub against the coils thus killing any spark. If the flywheel is rock solid, then remove it and see what is causing the rattle. It could be just a screw that has come loose and is grounding out the coil.

Kicker L5 not working

If the coil on the inside is looking ripped, it must be rubbing against the inner walls of the magnet. check of failure of continuity of the coil. if open and rubbing then you will need to replace the coil. I shall guide you through this job. carefully disconnect the coil lines to the frame, then using a good sharp tool remove the side suspension and the inner spider that suspends the coil. now you can remove the whole assmebly. if the coil is damaged then slowly cut out the coil, get a replacement of the same diameter from the spare parts shop. if not available you will need to have some experience to wind the coil in the same diameter with the same SWG. Once you get the coil fix it carrefully to the speaker diaphragm centrally, then centrally place into the speaker mountings with the coil just in the gap, not rubbing against the magnets. now you can glue out the spider and suspensions. there you are. Good luck .

Sqeeky noise coming from bottom of machine. Plastic cover (with magnets) rubbing against electromagnetic coils. Is it caused dy plastic dish cover warping or worn bearing , etc ????

Check the mounting bolts, nuts, screws are tighten. Check with a appliance repairman, because of electric parts are involved. Hope this may be of some help.

Magnet fell off speaker

Thats crazy well you could put it back on but how would you know that the magnet is perfectly centered so that the voice coil doesnt rub against it? How could you make it bond with the frame so that it doesnt come off again? HMMMMMM-cant take it back to the shop where you got it and exchange it? If it were me and i had no other choice-Id get some "liquid metal" and center it as well as i could and just epoxy that ****** right back to the frame unless i knew somebody who could tack weld it -Im not that lucky though so yup try some epoxy or liquid metal or some sort of super strong adhesive

I need to replace the liftgate gas springs on my 2000 eclipse GT

You'll need to remove the interior quarter panels (upper and lower) and remove the seat belt housing. Using a small telescopic magnet, you can retrieve the nut that has fallen. Drill a half inch opening on the indentation just underneath the hole. Using the magnet, position the nut so you can screw in the lift support screw. Once you start to thread, apply tension against the nut by pulling on the lift support and turning the torx screw at the same time.
