I have a tandem pacer 2400 lawn mower, my gardener was cutting fairly wet grass, it tripped the power and now does not start, even left it for a few hours ? thank you Vanessa


have the lead to the mower tested and tagged
if there is any insulation problems in the lead , then the rcd breaker will trip from earth leakage problems

wet grass is very heavy to cut so the motor may have overheated
press the reset button if it has one or have the electrician doing the test and tag of the cord also check the motor

moisture and power do not mix so electric mowers are only suitable for dry cutting

I have a Ariens snowblower deluxe 30 which is a year old. Starts fine and will run. Unfortunatley it is running way to low. I have replace the gas with fresh gas ran it through completely


It is very possible the carbureator needs a cleaning. Moisture can corrode the inner parts of them if left all summer. I find that the fuel usually does not go bad over the summer. I always start my snowblower once a month over the summer and then have no problems when the snow flies again. There was a time when mine was losing power and quitting also. There is a screw on the bottom of my carbureator that needed adjusting. If you are lucky that may be all you need. By turning mine in and out a bit I found the spot where the gas was correct and it worked fine again.

I can start my barracuda but it won't run at more than idle


Timing problems, bad or warn cam shaft lobes, fuel pump going bad, no pressure. Worn corroded rubber gas tank lines, from the tank to the hard lines, just forward of the gas tank, under the car. Inspect for gas leaks.

My troy-bilt snowblower will not start. I stored it right last winter. I filled it with fresh oil & gas two days ago. I've done the starting procedure over and over again. Added fuel stabilizer and seefoam...


Check to see you are getting spark at the spark plug. Take the plug out and put the plug wire on it and ground the the nut on the spark plug to the engine block and crank the engine and see if you get spark at the plug. If so then your carburetor has to be taken apart and cleaned.

Talon electric chainsaw has no power, changed the fuse etc...any ideas??


talon chain saws have two control switches before they will start. One is the trigger that you pull and the other is a button or lever that has to be held in at the same time. These two controls mean that you have to have both hands clear of the chain before it works.

Hi we have a Massey Ferguson Dyna 4 5465 and it was working this morning and then it died we started it up and it ran for about 1/2 a minute when we try starting it now we can hear the fuel pump runs for...


am i to assume its a diesel ,if so sounds like its out of fuel but i could be wrong as its been many years since i have worked on tractors and all the fancy electronic gizmo on modern vehicles can confuse me.Now firstly check the key as no doubt as its a modern one it has a immobilisor and if the head of key loses its chip inside the key head it will never start unlike the old ones that would run on paraffin diesel or petrol ,the later ones were diesel only but again providing they had fuel and oil with the rad topped up they ran 24/7 ,thats a point check the oil level if its low it may stop the engine from starting
