SOURCE: Sears 19 hp twin 42 inch tractor, won't start if hot

Hi
Two things come to mind. First it could be not getting enough fuel when hot due to carb adjustment being too lean. That could be that the float level in the carb is set too low or the low speed jet is set too lean. When cold the choke circuit in the carb supplies the extra fuel required.
Second in some enjines that have low compression they start cold but when hot the compression drops below 60 psi and makes starting very difficult until engine cools down.
I suspect a fuel problem.

SOURCE: I can switch on lights and fan, but then they switch off

It could be either. Usually i would say its the control board, but its very possible that its the transformer. I would start with that, the trans=25$ then control board = 110$
Its the small transformer (blue/yellow/black/white) wires coming out of it.

SOURCE: My water pump stops and starts. the contacts on

A lot of these pumps do have automatic thermal switches built into the motor end cap, Double check that its being fed the name plate voltage and that the voltage doesn't drop when the pump is running (which would indicate a loose or bad connection or just undersized wire in the circuit)

Shallow water pump keeps stopping


new pump --not big enough for the job
old pump --motor windings problem, faulty start run capacitor
I suspect that as the motor is 1/2 hp if will run good when there is a need for water but under pressure the pressure switch is set to high so the motor overloads and gets hot

Have a sovereign hot springs spa purchased in 2000. When turning the jets on it kicks the breaker. Also, the inside control system is not working anymore. Could our friendly electrician do this easily,...


When spas turn on initially they run through a purge cycle. This when the pump runs for a few minutes to remove any air in the heating system so the heater does not dry fire.
If your system runs through the start up cycle just fine but kicks the breaker when the heater starts then the heating element is bad and needs to be replaced.

Regarding a 30x60 indoor jetted tub (Jacuzzi). When I push the on/off button, the pump slows down but then a few minutes later starts again on its own when there is no water. Any idea what is going


IF that is the one I recall, the switch is not connected to the tub. When you press the button, it sends air pressure to the switch under the tub to activate it;. You need to check the tubing and the switch

I have a 3/4 hp shallow well pump. It running at about ten on my pressure gauge. That means no pressure. What can I do?


If the pump turns on and off real fast, then your pressure tank is water logged. If you have
a pressure tank with a diaphram in it, you need a new tank. If it's a plain tank, then you
need to turn off the pump, drain the tank and turn it on again. All pressure tanks need
a cushion of air on top.

If the pump isn't short cycling, then try adjusting the pressure switch. There are two springs
under the cover, with adjusting nuts on them. One is for the cut in, the other is for the cut out.
I would set it so the pump turns on when the pressure drops to 30, then turns off when it hits 50.

Hope this helps ya !

Jets don't work in the jetted tub.


First the obvious, most are electrically connected to a ground fault device, ether an outlet or a breaker. BEFORE ADDING WATER, check these out to make sure they are not tripped. Most all tubs have a minimum water level which must be reached before the jets will operate. This is usually a piece of trim located above the depth of the jets. Make sure the tub is filled to cover this part. If you cant identify the water level device fill the tub so that all the jets are covered by an inch or 2. Some tubs have push button switches or touch pads to control the motor, some have touch sensitive trim. There may be some sort of medallion from the maker on the tub, simply touching it will start the tub. Once you get it going most tubs have a built in timer that turns off the pump in 15 - 20 minutes. For more tub time just hit the switch again but keep in mind that extended exposure in a hot tub can mess with your blood pressure and cause you to loose balance or pass out, hence the 20 minute timer.

Jet pump will not shutt off after I replaced heater relay. Tub is a hot springs landmark with an IQ2000 panel the year is also a 2000


it sounds like the pump relay may be stuck closed. Also check the temp readout, if it thinks the water is too hot it will try to cool the water by running the jets and sometimes the blower as well.
