Old Toro Moist O Matic problem

I have an ancient Toro 4 station Moist o Matic system.  There are five black rubber tubes coming from the control box then buried in ground (even though there are just 4 stations). This one black tube has been cut somehow and whenever I use the sprinkler this cut tube poors water out leaving that area of my yard always wet and my shrubs look awful.  Finding a sprinkler repair service that is even willing to look at this old system is next to impossible.  I've been told all I can do is have it taken out and whole new system put in.  Who has that kind of money.  I'll keep trying to figure out a solution.

SOURCE: I have an old toro moist-o-matic 4 station lawn

I have an Owner's Manual for that model. It's just about three pages on how to program, not troubleshoot, though.

My 2001 Z Master 286E will crank but has no spark. I checked 4 fuses and all are good. I had to jump it with a bosster box to get it started last week. I got off the seat without setting the parking brake...

Sounds like one of your safety switches may be grounding your ignition coil, you should notice a wire ( probably black) coming from under your engine shroud and connected to a grounded post remove this wire so it isn't touching any metal and then see if you have spark, if so you have a grounding issue.

I want to replace a dimmer knob with a normal on/off switch but the dimmer has two black wires that are spliced together on each side so a total of 4 wires. Which two would be the live and why are there...

Could be several reasons, but here's what i think is most likely. First, there are other wires in the box that are not connected to the switch - 4 ground wires all connected together, and 4 white wires all connected together. You only 1 hot black wire coming into the box. This wire goes to one side of the switch, but it is tied to a 2nd black wire that is going on to something else (like another switch or an outlet). That counts for two of the black wires. The other two black wires are on the output side of the switch and are going to two places - pehaps the switch is used to control two ceiling light fixtures. The good news is that unless you have a lighted switch there is no difference between the IN side and OUT side of the switch - it works the same either way, and you can connect the switch just like the dimmer was hooked up - even if my explanation of why is not exactly your situation. Good luck!

Why do I need rubber feet for my toaster?

It is a good idea to use rubber feet so that you don't scratch the surface under your toaster. It will cost much more to repair the damage to your countertops than it will to buy a kit of rubber feet for your toaster and other appliances.

How do you use additive hose with pressure washer

In order to get the system to pick up whatever solution you have the pickup tube in, you have to use the black, soap tip on the spray wand. If you use any of the high pressure tips, usually red, yellow, white or green, there will be too much pressure in the line for the siphon system to work properly. There is no way to control how fast the system picks up the cleaning solution, so if it's using your solution too fast, dilute it with water in a five-gallon bucket so it doesn't go through your product so fast. After you use the soap tip to soak down whatever you're cleaning, switch to the appropriate pressure tip and rinse everything down.

My 1987 deville has been missing the intake hose that brings fresh air into the air pump. the hose before the inline filter is the part i need but can't determine if anything else is missing as w

The A.I.R. (Air Injection Reaction) System was included on California-emission equipped vehicles. The system is designed to provide additional oxygen to continue the combustion process after the exhaust gases leave the combustion chamber. The system begins with the outside air inlet, which is a short, L-shaped open-ended rubber hose running from the lower front passenger fender well into the canister. The black plastic round canister is located in the front passenger-side engine compartment, adjacent to the EECS (Evaporative Emission Control System) canister, which looks similiar, but the EECS canister has electrical connectors on the top. While the charcoal canister of the EECS is a sealed unit, the A.I.R. canister has a twist-off lid to access the disposable filter. The inlet hose goes into the canister, air then passes through the charcoal filter, and travels into the outlet hose (also made of black rubber), which then connects directly to a metal tube coming up the front of the engine. Please contact me if you need a diagram or photos.

The Casablanca 88U33M Scandia Ceiling Fan only has three wires, a black, a white, and a green wire (ground). How do you wire the fan and light on seperate switches?

If you want to control both the light and the fan using 3-ways, then just wire 2 sets of the 3-way circuits. For this you need two sets of 3-wire between the switches, and one 3-wire cable from the switch location to the fan/light box.

At box #1 (a 2 gang box), you will run a power cable (marked cable #1) into it. From there you run 2 sets of 3-wire cables (identified as cable #2 & cable #3) to the other switch location, which will also be a 2-gang box (box #2).

Also from box #1, you will run a 3-wire cable (cable #4) to the fan/light box (box #3).

Hook up is as follows:

Box #3: connect black of cable #4 to black (fan), connect red of cable #4 to blue (light), connect white of cable #4 to white (fan/light), and connect the bare to the green.

Box #2: Connect white of cable #2 to identified terminal on 1st 3-way switch (#3). Connect red & black of cable #2 to the remaining screws of 3-way switch #3. Next connect white of cable #3 to identified terminal of 2nd 3-way switch (#4), and connect black and red to remaining screws. Tie all grounds together and terminate to both switches.

At box #1, connect black from cable #1 to whites in cables #2 & #3, using a wirenut. Connect white in cable #1 to white in cable #4. Connect black and red in cable #2 to 3rd 3-way switch (#1) and connect black and red in cable #3 to 4th 3-way switch (#2). Connect black in cable #4 to identified terminal of 3-way switch #1, and connect red in cable #4 to identified terminal on 3-way switch #2. Tie all grounds together and to the switches

I recently took apart the climate control module on my 1985 Winnebago motor home (GMC chasis & drive train). I determined that the reason I was not getting heat or A/C was because the vacuum tubes...

The exact connection of vacuum tubes in 1985 Winnebago motor home 
The vacuum lines attach to the pushbutton assy. through a molded rubber thing that has probably disintegrated and the vacuum lines are lying loose. Here's how to reconnect them.
Notice a group of seven nipples. This is where the vacuum lines attach. I numbered the nipples in the text drawing below. NOTE: This is the layout as viewed from the front of the coach. Use pieces of rubber tubing to take the place of the old molded thingy and connect the lines to the numbered nipples as described below.

5 6 7

Plug up nipples 1, 2, and 5.You can use  small nails that fit snugly into the holes.
Connect the black line (vacuum source) to nipple 6.
Connect the white line (rearward-pointing outlets) to nipple 4.
Connect the red line (downward-pointing outlets) to nipple 7.
Connect the blue line (heater) to nipple 3.
Check out.Thanks.
Thanks. keep updated for any more can rate this solution and show your appreciation.
