Raised and tilted qutum 6 chair stuck in that positon hand control will not turn off

1. Unplug the controller and main power connections on the back of the chair. Wait a bit, then replug them in to see if that helps.

2. If it does, you may need to get your programming updated. This was a problem for a while but they upgraded the software.

How to troubleshoot swing motor problems on a 1963 jd row cropper backhoe?

just like any hydraulic system there is A (IN) and a (OUT) on every cylinder and motor on tractor (even steering) loosten (NOT remove) the hose fitting thats on (A or In) to motor and attempt to move joint/device with controls if a steady drip of fluid is present then your problem is device (cylinder,motor) if no drip then follow hose up to power divider or solinoid or hand valve and attempt same procedure , keep moving up the line till you get a steady drip of fluid and last device in liine is the problem device , repair or replace it

ALLWAYS turn off motor and release pressure from hyd system before you attempt to completly remove any device from system for replacement , and note that booms and arms and heavy stuff will relax(fall) with no pressure in system , prepare for this to happen (blocking,chaining)

Error 06

Look for a water leak, it may be to the base of the machine and will release out the vent UNDER the drip tray if you tilt the machine forwards. There are many places for it to leak, not easy to find, I have an outer housing with cutouts to allow me to see inside while it's running. Hydraulic ram and the distributor are the most common places to cause error 6 but there is also a tricky one where the valve on the pump releases to the drip tray. A leak is the problem, finding where/which is the hard part.

My unit was leaking water in the house, so we tilted it back a little. Now it's not blowing cold air.

If you only tilted it 1/4" to 1/2", shouldn't have affected it's operation. Check the air intake filer to make sure it's clean. And while the front is removed to check the filter, look to see if any significant water remains in the drip pan. If there is, the drain hole of the drip pan may be clogged and needs to be cleared.

Hope this helps you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

What is the best and safest way to remove the blades from my Snapper riding lawn tractor/mower in order to sharpen them?

Hi, the best way us to raise the front of the mower and use a rattle gun to undo them. If you do not have one you can place a block of wood between a blade and the deck. The blades will be tight and are a normal right hand thread. Hope this helps, regards Phil.

My 1988 suburban is leaking oil but only when it's running, and its a pretty steady drip I was wondering if it could be a oil pressure switch, and if it is where is it located on the motor

If it is leaking as steady as you say when the engine is running, it could be coming from several places you can check. Raise and block the vehicle good and steady enough to where you can slide under it with a good strong light. Check the oil drain plug, pan gasket, oil filter may have a hole in it from a rock flying up, the sending unit should be on the side of the block. It could be the rear main seal, but Its doubtful as you say its a steady stream when its running. You shouldn't have a problem finding it if its a steady leak, you will just have to look where its running down with the engine on. Keep me posted, and good luck.
