Check your pressure switch. In most cases it is a small black box with 2 to 4 screws holding the cover on. Make sure the unit is un-pluged or disconnected from power when doing so. Once it is open make sure that the contact tips are not welded together and if not then you should replace the entire pressure switch

Without hearing the noise I can't tell you for sure but take a spray can of WD40 and with the engine running spray some on the belts if noise goes way that's your problem, if not check the A/C (if you have A/C) the compressor may be binding up causing the belt to squeal due to friction from the tight compressor. To check the compressor remove the belt and turn the A/C pulley by hand (should turn freely) next turn on the key (do not start engine) turn on A/C then turn A/C pulley by hand again. It will be harder to turn but still relativity easy. If it is hard to turn it is beginning to bind.

Compressor requires 2 or 3 or more tries to start.

If the model number is correct and you replaced the=>12555902 Start Relay with Overload along with the-> 65889-4 Run Capacitor
and still having trouble the compressor may be defective due to binding because of wear, age, factory defect or you are trying to restart too soon after the compressor last stopped. No promises of a fix but the=> URCO810_Supco_Start_Relay_3_n_1

may be useful in a worn binding hard start compressor but may last a good long while Sea Breeze

When raising the bar to start to cut the Toro makes a terrible squeaking and the engine cuts. Help. The lawnmover will start. It is model 2622-21" rear bagger. We cut the back lawn and went to cut...

Is this a self propelled? Since it will run, blade spinning, the bar you are mentioning to start cutting is for the self propelled drive. The terrible squeaking is probably the belt slipping due to something causing the wheel to bind. Check for the ability to turn the drive wheel by hand. Then check under the cover for any binding.

I hope this helps you out.

It sounds like the compressor is trying to start under load because there is a tightness in the pump itself or there is high pressure air in the line between the pump and tank There is a small valve that releases the pressure out of the main pipe that runs between the compressor and tank once the tank is full and the motor automatically cuts off. You know this valve is working by the sound of a short spurt if air being released when the motor cuts off. Releasing this pressure means that the motor is able to restart easily because there is no load. If the valve is not releasing this air, the compressor is trying to start under full load which the motor is not capable of doing, hence the slow running, overheating and popping of breakers due to a current overload as the motor tries to run up to normal peed. Motor burnout is possible if it keeps recurring.

This small release valve is attached to the Pressure control switch that switches the motor On & Off and usually has a small pipe going to it or is incorporated inside the Pressure Control Switch. If the valve appears to be working then it means that the Non-return valve on the input to the tank is not sealing properly and letting air back into the main pipe causing the compressor to start under load. Check both valves for correct operation and replace as necessary.

If all the air side checks out OK the check for low oil level and / or binding in the air pump main drive shaft.

I need instructions for the new janome quilt binding set, I can't seem to find them anywhere. Leanne

As a garment sewer, I want to cut my binding on the bias, but I thought I should investigate the 'right; way. I loved this explanation from How to Make Quilt Binding by Janet Wickhell . She explains the pros and cons of cutting on the straight or lengthwise grain and the crosswise grain. Binding cut on the crosswise grain seems to be the best choice for wear and tear for reasons that totally make sense. Did you know that? If you do want to cut on the bias here's an excellent tutorial by Marjorie M Baker, M.S. Extension Associate for Clothing and Textiles, University of Kentucky Cooperative Extension. She gives you all the equations and calculations. Once you're done with marking and sewing your bias piece of fabric, use your serger, if you have one, without any thread, to cut continuously and fast, along the cutting lines!
The NEW Quilt Binder Set arrived for our New Horizon. We've had a few calls about the "Instructions Inside", but they couldn't find them. The back card of the Blister Pack, is actually a folded card and all the instructions are "In There".....It made me smile! Also some of you are curious as to which other machines in our Janome line up that it fits. The Janome Quilt Binder Set is compatible with the Memory Craft 6500P and 6600P and the Memory Craft 11000, all versions.
I'm not a seasoned quilter, as so many of you out there are, but I know how important, and how time consuming putting on your binding can be. Customers tell me, their quilts are left unfinished, because of the binding! After reading the 'instructions inside' very throughly, and experimenting a lot, the binder really does make this necessary last step quick, neat and easy. Our Janome Global site has a few tips and tricks for creating square corners. I wanted to see if I could make it do mitered. It is totally possible with a couple of pins and some practice.

Tips for starting the binding

Starting binding under presser foot
*Follow the basic instructions to attach the binder to your machine and inserting the binding and when you get to STEP 5 follow these instructions instead.
5. Sewing. Don't sew the beginning of the binding. quilt-binder-1.jpg?w=150&h=112

Inserting Quilt
Insert the edge of your quilt into the fold and drag the quilt through the fold to where you want to begin attaching the binding, usually away from a corner. Lower the presser foot and start sewing slowly.

This is how the quilt should be feeding into the binding
Trim the binding that did not get stitched at the beginning.
6. Making the Mitre. When you get to the first corner, sew the binding right to the edge of the fabric. Cut the threads. Gently pull the quilt out from under the presser foot and some binding out of the binder, approx 1 1/2′. Create a mitered corner on the front and back of the quilt, using 2 straight pins to hold them in place. Think about the pin placement as you will have to pull them out before you begin sewing. Gently insert the quilt back under the pressor foot and into the binder, while pulling up the slack of the binding at the tape guide end. Lower the presser foot and needle into the fabric. Note: Check the binding is folding properly as it is coming out of the binder, especially underneath.quilt-binder-3.jpg?w=150&h=112quilt-binder-4.jpg?w=150&h=112quilt-binder-4.jpg?w=150&h=112quilt-binder-5.jpg?w=150&h=112quilt-binder-6.jpg?w=150&h=112quilt-binder-7.jpg?w=150&h=112
quilt-binder-8.jpg?w=150&h=1127. Finishing. Continue sewing and attaching the binding and making your mitered corners. When you almost get to where you began, approx 2′ , stop sewing, cut threads and gently pull quilt and binding out from binder. Cut binding, leaving a 3′ length attached. Remove Quilt Binder from machine. Trim and fold under your raw edges. Insert your quilt back under the presser foot and stitch the remaining binding!

My air condition belt broke in my 2001 Tahoe how can I tell if Compressor or Pulley is bad without belt?

The test is a simple one, with engine off and cooled down test the pulleys by hand, turn them slowly in the direction of rotation and feel for a binding sound or feel, if you feel a noticable bind and noise your culprit is the pulley or the a/c compressor.
Test whatever else runs off this belt as well by doing the same test.

Engine cuts out when compressor goes on

Either the compressor is beginning to bind up internally and is dragging the engine rpm's down or the computer is not compensating for the additional load (generally done via the idle air control valve.) Some testing will be necessary to determine this as other factors such as weak spark or bad fuel mixture can also contribute to the problem. Testing is necessary because even items that don't seem related can affect this, such as map sensor, which changes engine timing related to load.

-If both compressor and fan motor starts and stop, thermostat is the defect.
- If only the compressor check for your outlet no sign of discoloration, check the voltage if normal, check the defective overload protector of the compressor it its external, or compressor itself is defective
