    I have the same problem. Any solutions

    Viper never stops spinning after it goes into spinout mode. The cams are working properly, it just doesn't return to normal vac mode. It may be that the ball/spring assembly is stuck.

We found the problem to be a faulty check valve. the check valve cost about 25.00. I ordered it from poolcenter.com. The check valve is located by the cam. It's an easy fix. The check valve comes with the hose attachment, but since our hose was ok we just used a tie strap to connect the new check valve to the hose...sliped back into place... and it works like a charm once again. The part number is below. go to www.poolcenter.com

I had the same problem. I took the sweep motor apart and used a scotch brite pad and smooted the inside of the piston that operates the spinout. I also lubed the o-ring seals with some vaseline before putting it back together. I also used the scotch brite pad on the little plastic part and its mating surface the piston operates.

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

My weed eater will not run with the choke setting wide open.


You may have a pinhole or crack in the small hose that runs from the fuel tank to the carburetor. If equipped with a primer it may also have a small crack or pinhole. Either case may cause the carb to suck air instead of gasoline. Other possible reasons are a plugged muffler causing too much back pressure or a partially clogged fuel filter. (The fuel filter on many weed whackers are located inside the fuel tank at the end of the fuel line.)

Led christmas lights stay on when shut off


not neccecarily. leds have become so incredible efficient that the small currents from induction can be in some rare cases enough to dimly light them.(an unplugged extension cord running alongside another live wire will "pick up" some volts. not enough to light up regular bulbs but a led might). try it without the surge protector
