Blower speed will not adjust

I replaced the broken lever in the handle and now the trigger and controller do not want to adjust the speed of the blower, which is very low.

The lever may have broken because the cable is stuck due to corrosion or a bent/damaged cable covering. Can you take off the air cleaner and work the throttle manually at the engine? You might have debris on the carb holding the throttle closed.
Also try removing the lever and work the cable end with your hand or a pair of pliers. The amount of force should be quite light. If the cable effort is too high the cable is likely in need of replacement.

Why wont my classic kitchenaid mixer switch off


Good Morning,

There is a spring inside your mixer attached to the speed control switch and speed control arm, the spring can sometimes get caught on the slide bar that is just below it inside the mixer. The other reason is that the speed control switch plate in the rear of the machine (that the spring attaches to) vibrates the three speed adjustment screws out or in and the spring will pull the speed switch (control arm that you use to control mixing speed when using the mixer) back to the stir position after you try to turn the mixer off.

If it is a spring problem you will have to do a full tear down to get at the spring and either free it or replace it. If it is a problem with the adjustment screws on the speed plate, that can be handled at the rear of the machine and is twice as easy to get at but sometimes much more frustrating to adjust. There are "YouTube" videos on the internet that will walk you through the process of adjusting your speed control plate just Google "adjusting speed on kitchenaid mixer" I hope this helps. please let us know if it does and if you have other questions just post them here and we will "FixYa"

Auger


Hi Brenda,

This machine makes use of two levers on the handle. The right controls the drive and the left controls the auger. When both are released, the drive wheels and the auger should stop. The impeller (the part inside that pushes snow up and out of the chute) will run as long as the motor is running and not controlled by the levers.

You said the auger continues to spin even when the lever is released. Both levers are connected by a flexible, thin, steel cable that extends down to a "wheel" or pulley assembly that is held in place by two hex nut bolts to the rear (operator position) corners of the machine. The steel cable should be ON the wheel - not hanging in free air and not wedged between the pulley and pulley support. Loosening the bolts and adjusting the pulley UPWARD should reduce tension / provide SLACK required to disengage the auger when the lever is released (adjust for a *small* amount of slack only). Positioning the pulley DOWNWARD increases tension that reduces the amount travel the lever needs to ENGAGE the auger. The pulley assembly position needs to be adjusted so that when the lever is released, the auger shuts off, and when squeezed, the auger turns on. These same adjustment procedures can be used for the DRIVE lever control, too.

If you are unable to adjust the cable so that there is a little slack, then there is a problem with the cable at the other end - inside the machine. It will require someone who is mechanically inclined - or snow blower serviceman to adjust / repair this for you if you lack the tools and understanding to do the work yourself. It is not likely to be an expensive repair, however. You should ask for an estimate or be given the opportunity to authorize repairs before they are started.

I hope this helps and good luck!

How do I adjust the throttle cable on a C430 String Trimmer? When I depress the throttle cable, the linkage on the carburetor only moves about 1/16 inch and will barely turn the cutting head.


The throttle cables aren't adjustable. Make sure the other end is on the trigger correctly and that it is routed through the handle and the engine cover correctly. Also, make sure the throttle shaft and throttle plate (inside carb) are free and easy in their movement with the throttle cable off. The engine idle speed adjusting screw may be in too far also. Back it all the way out and then back in with the throttle closed Once the speed screw touches the throttle lever (what you hook cable into) on the shaft, give it about 2 turns in. This is about all you can do. If the cable is stretched badly (rare), it would need to be replaced.

Chainsaw runs full speed, will not idle.


Expose the carburetor so that you can observe the action of the throttle lever on the carburetor. The trigger should move the lever from the idle adjust screw to full throttle stop. If no movement observed, remove the trigger assembly from the front handle (make notes as you remove the pieces) and clean the area of sawdust/dirt accumulation. Recheck the action after everything is re-assembled before starting the engine. If the idle speed is still excessive, then turn the idle speed screw several turns CCW until the chain stops turning. Try wiggling the carburetor body to see if it has come loose from the engine. Hope some of this helps!

Trigger on poulan 3314 does not control speed. Saw runs at constant speed, somewhere above fast idle.


Open the cover over the air cleaner so that you can observe the action of the throttle cable and carburetor lever. Operate the throttle--normal action is lever wide open at full throttle and lever resting on idle stop screw when throttle released. If action is restricted, disassemble the handle where the throttle trigger is located and clean out the sawdust. Recheck throttle action. The throttle cable shouldn't require lubrication. Clean the air filter and check the operation of the engine. Hope this helps!

Speed control lever stuck or locked. How do I unlock it?


Hi BROOKLYNX. To answer you primary question, no there is no special speed control knob lock that you?ve inadvertently triggered. OK, so without a lock why?s your speed control knob stuck? It most likely that something broken inside your mixer to lock it into position. I wouldn?t continue to operate your machine as you are doing. It?s not good for the electric motor, the electric cord or the plug. It would be better to determine the root cause of your control knob?s obstinacy. The inspection and troubleshooting of the inside of your mixer is a DITY capability, particularly if your mixer is out of warranty. Just be sure to have the Parts List manual on hand. If you're lacking one, you can download a PDF version from the KA website: http://www.kitchenaid.com/flash.cmd?/#/page/home. Click on Customer Care>Locate Manuals & Guides> Enter the 6 character model number, in your case, try K45SSW, and select one of the files listed under Parts List (check to see it this matches your mixer model). Turn to pages 6 & 7, titled: Motor And Control Parts, which provides an exploded view for the disassembly and reassembly of your mixer, along with all the parts. You?ll want to focus on part #s 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6, which is our speed control assembly. Check to see if something isn?t blocking you?re the movement of #3. You should be able to determine if something has broken. If something has broken, you can order replacement parts and install yourself. As far as parts go, here are four potential vendors in no particular order: RepairClinic.com; mendingshed.com; searspartsdirect.com; partstore.com. Prices for the same part can vary widely between vendors, so do your comparison shopping. Once apart you can check for any other unseemly wear and tear on the gears, etc. It can be messy but quite gratifying to diagnose and repair your mixer yourself. Finally, here's a link to an excellent site that details the disassembly and replacement of a mixer's grease, which might be helpful, too. http://www.foodonthefood.com/food_on_the_food/2009/04/how-to-repair-a-kitchenaid-mixer-yourself.html Good luck and have fun. I hope this helps. Howard, Burke, VA If this solution has helped you, please rate it, thanks! - hslincoln

Gas door wont open when pushing release lever, Trunk release works OK when pulling on same lever.How can I open Gas door without pushing on lever? What is the fix? Has enywone out there had this problem?


Try removing the plastic lever handle to see if it will let you push the lever further towards the floor resulting in more tension on the (hopefully not broken) cable.

Take a plastic knife like you would get at Wendy's (or anything you can think of that would work better) and wiggle it in the center of the right side of the fuel door. You're trying to depress a trigger and pop it open. Forcing can bend the inner latch but it can be bent back. After you get it open you'll need to do some adjusting or diagnose if the cable is broke. Even though it's the same lever, it's two cables.
