950 watt is very small. Most electrical appliances need 1000watt to operate so if the vacuum cleaner is 1000watt then the gen set will trip. Check the drill as it is possibly 850watt which the gen set can handle. It all has to do with the wattage of the equipment you intend to run from the gen set

My ryobi 2200 generator rebs hi and low over and over it works but i feel it might turn off


You need to clean carburator. The bowl float opens and closes the pin valve. The float may have a leak, if gas inside float, it needs replacing. Or the valve is sticking. Get a good carb cleaner product at parts store. If its very bad you may need to take carb apart and soak the parts to clean them. Make sure you are turning off gas valve when not in use. You should turn off gas valve and let the motor run out of gas before using kill switch to drain gas from carberator each time its run. Then this won't happen. If no gas valve, buy one and install. Its worth it.

Hi there Our vacuum cleaner exerts no pressur and it doesnt **** anything from mat,, it is just 4 months old bt we have missed the receipt,, cadsn u please help us? thanks and regar


Check your filter/bag especially if you've used it to clean fine particles; they will tend to clog the filters or bag and cause loss of performance. It the filters/bag are good and/or new, check for an obstruction in the hose or suction tube.

I have the same problem as discussed above. My Hoover Pet Cyclonic upright stops working while using it. The bottom feels hot when this happens. When it first occurred, I emptied the canister and even...


The vacuum is probably getting hot and the thermal sensor in the motor is shutting it off and then allowing it to come back on after it cools down. You mentioned replacing the secondary filters, replace the exhaust filter too.
If replacing all the filters did not solve it you may have a clog or restriction somewhere causing the loss of suction and the overheating.

It's best to run all electronics through a UPS and surge protector. Small generators like the RG-950 are really for small power tools and lighting. The Ryobi RG-950 is only rated 650 watts which really means about 450 watts (70%) for continuous use. In general, a basic desktop or a laptop should be OK. A TV up to 25 inches and a 100w lamp, should be OK. If you try doing both at the same time, expect smoke followed by lights out. A UPS and Surge Protector are a must on small generators due to their poor voltage and frequency regulation. The UPS should be a good quality one that deals with Brownout, Overvoltage, and frequency deviation. ALWAYS USE A SURGE PROTECTOR!

Has gas in carb but will not transfer gas to engine


if gas is in carburetor but won't transfer to engine, try to spray down the carburetor 'tube', choke plate and jets with a carburetor cleaner spray. The jets are probably clogged, due to lack of use.

Also, you can try putting carburetor cleaner into the gas tank, a little bit.

If this does not immediately work, then a carburetor rebuild is required, where new jets are put in, and passageways are blown out with compressed air and sprayed with carburetor cleaner in a disassembled state.

If you store the unit with old gas for 3 months or so, then Stabil Gas treatment is recommended. If it's longer than 3 months then the carburetor should be drained or the engine run until it is out of gas in the float bowl.

This may seem a little funny, to do all this, but if one does this, then less expense for carburetor rebuilds can be avoided, over time.

Good luck on this repair.

Roomba 550 was plugged & docked in for 3 wks without being used (on vacation) & now it won't work or charge. Unit is 3 months old.


The battery sounds like its dead.. Leaving it on a constant charge is actually bad for the battery. Sorry to tell you but you need to either get a new vacuum or take it back to the place you got it and have them take a look at it and perhaps replace the battery.

With the money you spent of that "vacuum" you could of bought a much better vacuum cleaner that would last you much longer.

Also, if it's only 3 months old I'm sure there's some kind of factory warranty in place for something like this. Give the manufacturer a call and see what's up.

Hope this helps you

Ryobi PCN 4040 will not start up


When I was going to college I worked at a tool rental center and learned may tricks about tools. At this rental center chainsaws were seasonal thus sat in the warehouse probably as in your situation. Well one is supposed to store a chainsaw without any fuel and discard any old fuel mix because it will not keep. To easily start a saw that was in storage we would install a new spark plug, add fresh fuel mix and spray carburetor cleaner directly into the carbureter to get it started. Once started fresh fuel would be drawn into the engine from the tank and keep running. If you forgot to drain the old fuel, do it now and use the trick above. For best results, always use a fresh plug. Enjoy

Ryobi gas trimmer


I don't mean to over simplify this, but are you using fresh gas? Gas string trimmers are extremely ticky when it comes to gas. They like it SUPER fresh. And while the gas and oil mixture should be right, it can be off a little bit and still run. Try draining all of the gas out, and then filling up with fresh mix. This is ALWAYS my first step with string trimmers, and it fixes the problem 75% of the time.
Hope this helps!!
