I have a Candy GOU218 when I push the start button it does start the dryer but as soon as I release my finger from the button it stops, It started doing it around a week ago so I had to push and hold


There are push to start circuits used for motors and then there are holding circuits that keep the unit running. This way the dryer stops if the circuit is open due to high temperature or end of the cycle. It seems as if the holding circuit (could be a rotary switch that stays closed while the dryer is running) or a holding circuit relay (stays closed until circuit is broken by the control) has failed.

Choke trigger on the handle will not lock to start the chainsaw


more information please..

To lock the choke on:-
1. depress dead mans trigget on top of back handle
2. squeeze throttle trigger fully in.
3. slide on switch fully down to 'full choke' position. 'it should stay there'.
4. Pull saw over until it fires once.
5. click 'on' switch up one position to 'half choke'
6. pull saw over again, saw should start running and be revving high.
7. 'blip' throttle, saw should stop revving and run on tick over.

Powermatic Band saw 143, when i press the start button the saw turns on but wont stay on. When i release the start button the saw turns off. What is the problem. Please help. Thank You, Lee.


Your powermatic band saw has a Magnetic motor starter. Since it is hard to find parts for the 143 you can remove the power and take the starter apart and clean the contacts. If that fails you can take it off and take it to a Electrical Supply Store and have them match you up with one that will work.

The way the switch works is when you push the on button it picks a relay that starts the motor and also has a contact the holds the relay picked. when you push the stop button it drops the circuit.

This is a safety feature to prevent the motor from restarting after a power failure until you hit the button

Hope this answers all your questions

While cutting , i experienced a bind. Before the saw stopped I shut it off. Left overnight, now will not restart. I have pushed the thermal reset button, however it does not seem to engage. I have checked...


Is this a direct drive or belt drive saw? If belt drive, you can remove the belt and try spinning the motor by hand then turn it on. Sometimes they can get stopped in a dead spot. Do not get your hands/fingers in the way when turning it on. You may need all of them someday.

The saw wants to start backwards.


this confuses me. What do you mean it starts backwards? How do you know it is running backwards? how long have you had this tool? I am confused because it is a table saw. The motor should drive the blade in the direction the teeth are facing. Meaning the poity part of the blade is where the wood is to star its cut. If this is not the case, you either have the blade in backwards, or your standing on the wrong side of the saw. good luck.

Saw won't always run.


I think more than that, the switch sounds like the contacts are burnt but it could also be more major electrical. Give me the brand and model number and I will try and find a breakdown for you and give some more ideas. Let me know

When I push the start button the dryer starts but immediately shuts off when I release my finger from the start button


That's the start relay causing that. It is supposed to energize and stay pulled in to run.
