Make sure that the oil level is not too high. If the blade hit something, it will change the engine timing,which will cause the handle to pull like that. To check to see if the shaft is bent, UNPLUG the spark plug wire!!! Turn the mower on it's side (KEEP the carb side up!)Pull the rope and have a helper watch the shaft. If it's bent, buy a new engine, It will cast about $120-$180 to rebuild the old engine.

Tecumseh 8hp snowblower engine kicks back hard enough to break plastic handle. I checked the key in flywheel ,I cleaned the carb,checked the flywheel, andcleaned magnets and coil pick up. I tried to start...


surging when running is most likely normal ,they have a governer that control's the carb & rpm so it wont over rev. It has a paddle near the fly wheel to pick up wind from it when running hooked to the carb with a small lever and held stable by a spring. Check to see if the spring is too tight or sloppy. 8 hp is a pretty big motor and a kick back is not really un expected. But a plastic handle is kinda cheesy, a rubber or a wooden handle would be better.Good thing you have electric start!

My pull cord rips out of my hand


The string assembly should reach a point far enough out when you pull the cord that it lets it spin free of the engine. What you are probably experiencing is the engine kick-back, where the engine is compressing the air/gas in the cylinder, and the pressure pushes the engine back. The crankshaft is connected to the pull cord assembly, so it's pulling out of your hand. You may not be pulling hard enough, or the cord assembly needs replacing.

1/3 hp drill press motor runs hot and very slow.


Look instead at the motor and drill post bearings. Remove the belt to see if the motor runs correctly with no load. If it still hums and gets hot, check that the motor itself turns freely (when off). If the motor seems to be ok, turn the driven pulley by hand--it should also turn freely. The capacitor is usually a starting assist, not running. To test, wrap a small rope several turns (when pulled must turn in the normal direction) around the small motor pulley and pull smartly while turning the motor on. If it now comes up to speed, the capacitor has lost capacitance. Electronic parts suppliers like Jameco or Mouser have such items.

Table saw starts slow and the stops


Sounds like the run capacitor has given up. Or, maybe the worst is it overheated and burned the motor winding. You'll probably have to take it apart. If there is a smoked capacitor, that's probably the one you should replace. If the winding is scorched, might as well get a new motor. If both are the case, then replace the capacitor before you give up on the winding.

Fan motor slow on a/c


If the fan motor has a capicator it could be bad. A bad cap will pull the motor down. If there is no cap then the motor beatings could be going bad. this can be checked by matching the motor amps with the rated amps on the unit information tag.

GE nautilus wont run


These motors were famous for the seal sticking to shaft. If this is an older unit turn the fan on motor by hand until it breaks free. Do this with power off.
