Try bench setting the carb screw. Turn it all the way in and then back out 1 1/4 turns.

SOURCE: put new spark plug in new gas clean filter

The fuel system may need tending to. It may need new fuel lines, a cleaned fuel filter and the carburetor cleaned and adjusted. If this is an older unit, (even a couple years old) it may require some new internal carburetor parts as well. I don't like being the bearer of bad news, but this isn't always an easy fix. Your specific problem has to be diagnosed and by process of elimination, the problem resolved.

The new wall heater will not go on. The pilot light is on. We replaced the thermostat and the heater came on but would not go off. We checked the wiring..all good. Any advise would be appreciated.

You need to preform a continuity check between your T-stat wires. More than likely, the wire that initializes the call for heat is grounded to one of the other wires. Also, if the unit worked fine prior to the initial problem, it's likely that you haven't purchased the proper t-stat for the unit. Wall heaters typically operate using a millivolt t-stat and not your typical heating stat you would find on a central unit. If you did purchase the correct stat, then more than likely it's not wired correctly, or you have a direct short, as mentioned above, in the wiring.

As usual.....when dealing with electrical, no matter how low of current, please turn off the gas and any electrical current that the unit may have prior to servicing.

Remove plug spray a little fuel into the cylinder with a sprayer u have made from a used spray bottle from shower cleaner etc. That you have cleaned and dried. About 3 good sprays should do. Install plug and try to start it should run for at least a few seconds, if it does you need to disassemble and clean carburetor if it does not you need to check on off switch and if that is not problem you need to check coil.

The refrigerator is not cooling in the refrigerator or the freezer

If you have a fridge or fridge freezer and the fridge is not getting cold it will be one of the following problems:

1, The fridge thermostat is faulty and not cutting in at the required temperature. Fridge stats are not easy to test, so the best way is to bypass the stat to see if the compressor starts. To bypass the stat first unplug the appliance and remove the stat housing from inside the fridge compartment, once you have removed the housing you will see the stat inside. Some stats have 2 terminals some have 3, whatever yours has you will need to connect the compressor wire ( Black) to the live wire (Red or White). When you have bypassed the stat plug the appliance back in and switch on, if the fridge starts up and runs ok you will need to purchase a new stat.

Types of thermostats:

There are various types of stats fitted to fridges and fridge freezers, the most common being the VT9 (pictured below) this stat will replace most larder fridge stats and most conventional fridge freezer stats. If your fridge has an ice box inside then you will need a VC1 type stat which has different temperature ratings. If you have an older Zanussi or Electrolux fridge freezer with one compressor and the stat is in the fridge then you will need a Reverse Action stat, as these type of appliances have a solenoid valve fitted into the pipework near the compressor and the stat operates the solenoid.

If you are replacing your old stat with a VT9 and your old stat only has 2 terminals then connect the new VT9 using the terminals marked 4 and 6 only. When fitting any new thermostat take great care not to kink the capilary tube as doing this will render it useless.

2, If you have tried bypassing the stat, and the compressor did not start then you have probably got a faulty compressor. To test for this is quite simple just listen carefully to your fridge and if the compressor is at fault you will hear a faint hum followed by a click, you will need to be patient as once it has clicked it could be 10 mins before you will hear the hum again. The reason you hear a hum is because the compressor is jammed and the hum is the motor trying to turn, the click that follows is the thermal overload tripping. If you have these symptoms it will not be worth repairing due to parts and labour costs.

3, If your fridge has lots of snowy ice on the backplate this is a sign that either the door is not shutting properly and letting in warm air thus creating snow, or it could be that you have lost some gas from the system and the compressor is working over time trying to get the temperature down. BE ADVISED it is rarely worth getting your system regased unless a leak can be located, as the gas will only leak out again and you will have the same problem in 1 or 2 months.

Frostfree fridge not cold

If you have a frostfree fridge freezer and the freezer is ok but the fridge is warm then your appliance is not self defrosting correctly, and if you could see inside the back wall it would be full of ice, this ice is blocking the airflow to the fridge compartment and therefore your fridge is warm. A quick fix for this problem is to completely defrost the appliance to do this you will need to move your frozens to another freezer then switch off your frostfree at the plug and leave off for 48 hours with the doors open and a large towel in the freezer to catch the water. After 48 hours plug it back in and let it run for 4 hours and you should find it will be working fine again, but you may find you will have to do this procedure every 6 months or so.

We just purchased a Homelite Pressure Washer. We put new gas and oil into it, and it will run for about 2 minutes and then shut off. Now we can not even get it to run. We really don't want the hassle of...

A couple of things to check.. some rather obvious.

Assuming you have followed all the directions.. removed the pump vent plug before first use.. have a hose attached.. pressed the trigger on the wand to make sure you have water flowing etc.

Check to make sure the fuel valve is turned to ON.. fully..
If you Over filled the gas tank.. remove some of the petrol.. it should not be filled to the top...

Hopefully you put the correct amount and right type of oil into the crankcase.. again do not overfill the crankcase..

The fuel on most Homelite pressure washers is regular unleaded gasoline. NO E85 fuel should be used. Certainly no premixed gasoline for two cycle engines.

Check Choke position.. to start place in Cold Start or ON.. once started let it run for about 5 or ten seconds.. move it back to RUN..

If you ran it too long with the choke on you probably fouled the spark plug..

Remove it and clean it carefully.. if it is wet.. and all black.. it's fouled.. let it dry out.. clean it up properly (careful to not change the gap) replace and try again.

Lastly if you live in a neighborhood.. there is almost always a fellow nearby that is good with smalle engines.. ask around.. these guys are always happy to fiddle with these motors.

Best of luck to you!

Make sure you are getting 24 volts back from thermostat and you are getting good connections. If you have 2 wires running to stat, connect them together at unit and see if unit starts. Check for wires unplugged, but I think that a flashing green light means you have 120 volts supply and the stat is not calling for heat

Gas valve not opening every time . i changed thermo pile& t-stat everything checks out o.k. but will only open valve intermittantly the only way i can get valve to open every time is to jump with wire.

I would be inclined to run new wire to stat if you are jumpering valve to get it to operate. However if you are jumpering wire directly off stat then I would check t-stat again.I know you said you had already changed stat but it's possible you got a defective one. If valve opens everytime you jump it I would say valve is okay. Hope this helps. Thanks

Power washer won't start

Have you checked for spark? You can remove the plug, touch it against the block and crank it and see if you have any spark (best done in as dark a place as possible). If you don't have spark, start by replacing the plug.

If you have spark, you can spray some starter fluid or gas into the cylinder, replace the plug and try to start it. If it runs for a few second, then you have fuel flow problem (dirty carb or filter, etc.).

Hope these basic tips get you going in the right direction.

You need to replace the thermostat if you have to force the contacts to close.

Make sure you get the right type of stat. It appears this is a thermopile millivolt type, as opposed to a standard thermocouple. The stats are not interchangeable.
I noted stats were available at Sears, but there I am sure there are other sources to purchase from.

Goodman U-30 Furnace

observe the sequence of operation. stat calls for heat and sends a signal, to furnace. check for 24 volts to common and white wire at furnace.first the forced draft motor starts and should have 120 volts to the plug it attaches to. after forced draft motor starts the pressure or vacuum switch closes should show no 24 volt when checked across terminals. shortly after the ignitor glows and shortly after click the main gas valve opens and main burners fire. shortly after the indoor fan comes on and hot air blows into the ductwork. follow the chain of events to see what doesnt happen and it is a clue to whats broke. maybe start by switching fan switch on stat to on. if fan comes on you have high and low voltage thereby eliminating the stat power and transformer as a problem. if you can see the ignitor look for it to be cracked . look close dont touch any part of it .it is powered by 120 volts when energized from board. dont forget when you take the door off there is no power to the furnace so be prepared to tape the safety switch closed when you are diagnosing.
