Of course I called Ridgid and I have to carry this thing over 150 miles to get it fixed so if I can do it myself it would save me a bunch of time but when I turn it on I get nothing. I checked all of the obvious to make sure power supply was coming in. Just before it went out completely one day I went to turn it on and the blade stopped, the motor hummed for aprox. 15 seconds then nothing. Of course my assumption is the motor is blown but where would I get a new one or is this one just worth driving the 150 miles and dropping it off and hoping they come up with something that is supposed to be under warranty, usually they find something else wrong and I could have bought a new one for what they charge me for the repairs and parts. I am thankful for the help!!!!

Re: wheels won't turn
OK I checked a couple sites and depending on the model number one of the motors is obsolete, the other is about 240.00 list. Are you sure the motor is bad? If so what I would do is if you have a local Grainger supply center give them the numbers off the motor and let them match it up with a Dayton motor. I didn't see anything special on the one that I looked at. It appears to have a straight shaft with a keyway for the pulley. Before I drove the 150 miles double check the motor and also it appears that it has a capacitator to check also. Let me know if I can help further but I wish I had better info for you.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

I called the repairman for help. Turns out that one of the suggestions would have worked if I could go to basement turn off breaker then run up and carry out the suggestion and run to the basement again and turn back on breaker, then up again faster. The repairman was able to fix problem by using me as the go between the breaker and the oven. He stayed up and I stayed down thereby eliminating the problem of not being able to run up and down fast enough myself. The two of us were able to make things happen in the time limit. I think I should have gotten a break on the bill since I played helper!! If anyone else has this problem and has closer access to the breakers than I, they would be able to cut the repairman out of the picture and save the service fee. Maybe I should run up and down from oven to breakers for a set amount of time for exercise in preparation for the next oven problem. May be easier to get a new oven without a computer in it if such a thing exist anymore because at 77+ I don't think I am going to get much faster even with exercise.
I had the same problem . on my 2002 silverado it turned to be the fuel pump failed because the fuel filter was clogged. I did the work myself could saved myself 219.00 and labor if I replaced a 7.00 $ Filter .
no there is no cheap nor easy fix, the steering column will have to come apart and the anti-theft contraption attached to the ignition switch which holds the steering column fixed will have to be replaced. there is a nice video of a fellow doing this over on youtube.com, good luck finding the parts.
This motorcycle has a single preloaded adjustable shock, you may have it set to low for the weight it's carrying or after this many years it's simply worn out. There should be a tool in the kit that came with the bike to turn the locking came. Another thing is and I've done this so many times myself is when carrying a passenger or I ******** a bunch of luggage I turn up the suspension. When I take the luggage off I forget to set the suspension back down again and it rides like a brick on two wheels.
A 60,000-mile or 72-month service adds on replacement of the limit-slip differential in four-wheel-drive models. The largest service, 90,000 miles or 108 months, adds on a timing-belt replacement. A 100,000-mile service calls for the replacement of engine coolant
i would make a note of the miles on the odometer and fill it up, then knowing how much it does to the gallon,drive to that mileage less 50 miles and save myself some money.(i always carry a can of gas anyway.)the number of times ive stopped on the highway for other people.........and do you know several have filled up my car because i stopped.......thats NICE PEOPLE....
If it is the wheel not the tier / i guess ether way ,/ ACE, or TRUE VALUE, should Carry the wheel, depending on how old it is you maybe able to call your local salvage yard [ If you really want to go green]. Hope this is some help to you .PS feel free to let us know how it works out . Good Day.
