Did you ever change the oil? If is still under warranty I would call Sears. It could be a factory mistake. If you are talking about a riding mower it could need a valve adjustment. This is a common problem on Briggs. Need more info to tell you for sure

Bakers pride electric deck ovens aprox 10 yrs old


It depends on the ampere rating, you will not normally be able to get a single phase supply in the UK at more than 100 amps total.

If the total oven rating is not more than 60 amps you may be ok.

Conversion would involve altering the wiring in the oven which may be costly and not worthwhile on a 10 year old oven.

I have Ariens Model # 1336DLE snow blower aprox 5 yrs


A volt meter or test light will be needed. Also a 12 volt battery supply ( you can use an automobile battery or your automobile)

*Please Note: before testing, make sure all wires and connections are tight and not corroded, loose, or burnt. Many electrical problems are just loose, broken, or burnt wire connections.

Test the chute rotator motor: you will need to disconnect the motor from the wiring harness.
1) connect a wire to the 12 volt supply and one of the motor leads
connect the other wire to the remaining lead
*note: positive or negative does not matter, because the chute motor will rotate either direction, and by reversing leads, the motor direction will reverse.

2) If the motor is good, now check for voltage from the snowblower engine.
Locate the supply wire to the rotator switch, with the engine running, check the voltage reading on that supply wire.

3) If the supply is good, then the switch is bad
