My john deere push mower starts fine mows for 10 min quits wont start so I took the the gas cap off looked at it put it back on push the prime bulb 1 time it started ran for 10 min quit did the gas cap...

I'm not sure of the model number of your mower or engine to know the fuel and carburetor set up. I do have one easy thing to try though as it sounds as if a vacume is building up in the tank. Try putting a half of tank of gas in it, leave the gas cap off, and see if it continues as it was or if it runs ok. If this stops the issue your cap vent is pluged up. I hope this helps

We couldn't get any gas to the burners the other night so my husband replaced the regulator. We got gas to both burners but only reached a max temp of 250 degrees after 45 mins. What do you thing the...

The regulator that your husband replaced, is partially locked up. This occurred when he opened the gas tank valve to fast. It happens a lot with the new OPD Valve tanks. It may have been the problem with the first regulator.

To solve it: Turn the tank's regulator OFF and disconnect the hose from the tank. Wait 5 minutes and reconnect the hose to the tank. Open the tank valve VERY, VERY SLOWLY (Slow motion, slow), until the valve is fully open. Then light the burner farthest from the tank first and turn it to HIGH. Does the flame height look normal? If co, light the remaining burners the same way. Now, do all the flame heights look as they should for being on HIGH? If so, you solved the problem. But, you won't know for sure, until you allow the grill to preheat for at least 15 - 20 minutes.

Always remember to open the tank valve very, very, slowly.

If the above didn't solve the heating problem. Remove and thoroughly clean all the burners, including the ventuuri valve on each burner. Spiders like to build nest in them.

Hope this helped you to troubleshoot and solve the problem. Please let me know and Happy Grilling!!

What is causing the problem. The crabs run fine

If you've found a hermit crab on a beach or in the shallow waters of the Gulf of Mexico, there's a good chance it is a striped hermit crab (Clibanarius vittatus) or a close relative in the Clibanarius family. These hardy crabs can live for several days out of water, but they are not land crabs. If you already have a warm water marine tank, you can add your hermits and let them be a "cleaner crew" eating any food that hits the bottom of the tank. Otherwise, you will need to replicate a subtropical marine ecosystem.

  • Set up a tropical saltwater aquarium. Striped hermit crabs can grow up to 10 centimeters, so a 20-gallon tank or larger is good for one or two crabs. They need a deep sand bed in which to bury themselves when they molt, and will do well with some live rock for climbing and hiding places. They need filtration, a hang-on-back or canister filter is fine for a crab-only tank. Aim for a water temperature of 78 F with a pH close to 8.0 and a salinity between 1.024 and 1.027. Make sure your tank is properly cycled (has run for at least a week without animals to build up beneficial bacteria) before adding crabs.

    Feed your crabs a variety of food. Alternate between sinking pellets and thawed frozen baitfish and shrimp, brine or krill. Feed two to three times daily in small amounts. They may also munch on algae growing naturally in the tank, or you can offer seaweed wafers or sheets. In the wild, they are opportunistic scavengers and in captivity will accept most aquarium-safe foods.

  • 3

    Add an assortment of clean, aquarium-safe seashells. The crab will move into slightly larger shells as it molts and gets bigger, so most of the shells should be slightly larger. It is not uncommon for a crab to decide to move into a slightly smaller shell on occasion, so provide a few of these as well.

    How would I know if something was put in the gas or oil tank is there a test to do on the bike to let you know. I got the bike from my X husband from divorce and he was mad so I know it tried to mess up...

    Extract a good sample +- 200 ML of gasoline into a glass (See through). Let it stand for 10 minutes or so. Oil is denser than Gas. It should be on the top if there is oil added to gas. Similarly sand particles will form on the botom of the glass and gas and water should not mix either. It would help if i knew what you suspected but that is basically the way to go about. DO NOT START THE MOTOR untill you are sure there is nothing in the gas.

    Runs for five seconds after being tilted up and put back down.

    Trash in the tank fuel line outlet. When you tilt it the trash moves and lets some gas in. Set it down and the trash goes back in the hole and shuts off the gas. No pressure to feed fuel so when you pull choke makes it run rich and then starves for gas again. Dump gas, disconnect the line at the carb. Put a clean tube (drinking straw, plastic tube, whatever will fit so you don't get gas in your mouth) in the gas line and blow air into the tank through the filter clearing the obstruction. Reconnect line then see if it runs longer before it shut off. If it does clean the tank and flush the dirt out.
    If that doesn't change anything then it has to be a carb diaphragm leaking and it need a rebuild kit and fuel system flush.
