SOURCE: Stanley ch5 wood chipper engine constantly stalls even though it is not clogged. Also the exhaust is blackish although this is a brand new machine.

Hi leo soriano
I know you said the machine is new, but things happen...
Make sure you are getting spark at the spark plug, to do this:
Remove your spark plug and check to be sure you are getting a bright blue spark at the spark plug.
You do this by grounding the plug on the head of the engine and pulling the crank rope...watching the plug for spark.
If you are getting a nice blue spark then skip A below and go to B.
A...If you do not get a nice blue spark then you may need to replace the electronic module.
Note: If you have to replace the module be sure to measure the position it is in, it is critical to starting.
Take a picture for later reassembly.
B...Also take some fine grit sandpaper (not emery) and lightly sand the flywheel where the magnet is located to clean any rust or corrosion from the magnet area.
Then follow the procedure below:
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Sounds like you have dirt/debris in your caburetor jets,fuel passages or a diaphgram that is becoming non-flexible or maybe the high/ low speed jet is out of adjustment.
Check/Clean/Replace your Air Filter, a dirty air filter can make your engine run to rich with fuel.
Note: ALWAYS USE COMPRESSED AIR TO CLEAN YOUR JETS AND PASSAGES, VERY IMPORTANT.
Note:Before you disassemble the carburetor:
Write down on a piece of paper and or take a picture of how the linkage attaches to your carburetor for later reference when you go to reinstall your carburetor.
Mark each piece with a awl, or some kind of sharp instrument that will make an alignment scratch before you disassemble the carburetor into separate pieces.
That way you will know which way it goes back together when you reassemble it.
Sometimes you can get by with priming the carburetor or by using a very small shot of starting fluid and letting it run a few times like that, and it will flush the gunk out of the jets,but most of the time you will need to rebuild the carburetor.
Be sure to check your fuel tank for water and dirt/debris, if there is water/debris then you need to clean your tank.
Check you fuel line/s condition...after a while they will degrade and need replacement.
Check/Clean/Replace your fuel filter if you have one.
When you remove your fuel lines from the carburetor be sure to make a drawing or take a picture of how the lines are connected to the carburetor.
Also a good time to take a picture for later reference for reassembly.
If the mower is over a couple of years old, then I recommend that you buy and install a new carburetor repair kit,because the diaphragm will get hard and that will cause it to be hard to crank.
The diaphgram may look good and flexible, but it can be deceiving and not act as a fuel pump as it should because it has become too hard and will cause hard starting,start and run and shut off, etc.
When you clean your carburetor, I recommend that you use a laquer thinner type cleaner to clean and dissolve the laquer build-up in the float and needle jet passages.
Be sure to remove all plastic and rubber parts before using the laquer thinner because it can dissolve the plastic parts and render them unuseable.
Be sure to use COMPRESSED AIR to blow out all the fuel and air passages.The higher air pressure is needed to blow some of the trash/debris from the fuel or air passages.
Be careful when blowing out the passages, because there are sometimes small rubber type seats in the bottom of some of the passages.
Keep in mind that the float (if you have one) for the carburetor must be level when you go to reassemble the carburetor or follow the instructions you get with the carburetor kit, or you could also ask the parts man that you get your kit from.
When you clean your carburetor and remove the jet screws, you will first need to lightly seat the jet screws.
But before you lightly seat the jet screws count the number of turns it takes to seat the jet screws from their original position.
Be sure to mark the turns down on a piece of paper.
That way when you put the jets back in, you know to lightly seat them first and then turn them back out to their original position before you started.
Once you have your carburetor cleaned/rebuilt that should solve your problem.
Please take time to rate me

My 2005 arctic cat 250 will not start I have a new battery new starter solenoide and good fuses new spark plug gas and nothing happens I have bypassed the electric push start because it quit working that...


With the ignition on, short across the starter solenoid and see if anything happens. If it tries to start (or fires up) then the problem lies with the feed to it so I would suggest re-instating a working push button and wires.

My dr200 won't start with the starter motor I've taking it out and tested it and it turns over but when it's in the bike and I push the button nothing happens can anyone please help me out cheers


Sounds like the starter solenoid is not transferring electrical power to the starter, or starter relay (if fitted) is not working. Check for a good engine earth. Connect a test light to the starter terminal and an earth, press the button, if it does not light, follow the cable to the solenoid and test for power to the solenoid from the battery, check earth to solenoid body and using the test light check the small wire has power when the button is pushed, if no then you are looking at the relay. Silly question, have you checked the side stand switch, kill switch and neutral switch. These all break the power to the starter solenoid. If you bridge any of these switches, please ensure the bike is in neutral. Good Luck

Have 2003 Honda Sabre. All electrical working fine. New battery. When I press starter button nothing happens. Could there be a blown fuse. All 10amp fuses good


Chances are that that problem is not fuse related. It is more likely you have a defective starter button. The starter button does two things. First, it turns off the headlight and , second, it activates the starter solenoid. If your starter solenoid clicks when you push the starter button, the starter button is good. If nothing happens when you press the starter button it may be dirty or broken. Try taking the switch apart and cleaning the button contacts.
Next go to the starter solenoid and try jumping the power from one solenoid post to the other. You can use a jumper cable clamp, a screw driver, or touch the two cables together, this sends power directly to the starter. If the starter works now you have a bad solenoid (burnt internal contact points).
If you hold the starter button and tap on the starter with a plastic hammer or back of a screw driver and the starter works , you need new starter brushes. There are no other parts (other than brushes) available for the starter from Honda. If the bearings are bad or the armature is shorted you will have to replace the starter assembly.

Noma timer - digital three buttons - one for time & two for mode & ? but I can not figure out how to work it - HELP!!!!


Noma/Woods timers are re-packaged under other names and numbers, and appear across several brands.

I don't show a 3-button timer except for Stanley

Stanley 3 button timer:
http://www.amazon.com/Stanley-38468-TimerMax-Extreme-Temperature/dp/B0020ML758
Westinghouse manual seems to match the Stanley timer
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/28468_TimerManual.pdf

Woods timers and manuals are shown on page below:
http://waterheatertimer.org/Woods-timers-and-manuals.html

Woods has 2-button timer N1506
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/Woods-49122-N1506-manual.pdf
Woods has 1 button timer N1502
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/Woods-N1502-manual-english.pdf
UPM makes 2-button timer
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/DT523-Manual.pdf

Write down what displays when each button is pushed, and then add a comment and I'll try to decipher the buttons.

What is a chipper?


Most of our industry refers to chippers or chipper-shredders as pieces of equipment that can handle both wood and leaves. These machines have both a chipping device and a leaf-shredding mechanism. This mechanism is basically a hammer mill, cylinder or drum with a series of pivoting flail-type knives. The chipper-shredder usually is a smaller machine and may include a vacuum to clean up leaves. These machines can be self-propelled or stationary. Most chippers are disc-type, consisting of a large, heavy, rotating disc with knives mounted to it and are for chipping wood only.

Deaths have occurred involving the use of wood chippers. Never allow children around or near the area when you are using a wood chipper. No one under the age of 18 should be allowed to use a wood chipper alone.

Wood Chipper how to


Great input tina783. I have just one thing to add. Try to shred the branches within a reasonable amount of time. I found out that with my shredder, if I put older, dried up branches in, it tends to take a lot more time, as well as tosses chips back out at you. With newly cut branches, this wasn't nearly as much as an issue.
