Hi David, can I ask for you to please let us know what your question is about Amazon Prime? Are you trying to CANCEL Prime? I would love to help, which I am sure we all would love to do, but if you could be a little bit more specific, I believe we might be able to assist you.

I have a 2012 craftsman mdl 316.711970. I follow all maintenance requirements. It will only starts when the choke lever is in position 1. It takes forever to prime it cause the primer button doesnt pop...

I don't think so either. I think you have crud built up inside your fuel tank, and it needs to be thoroughly cleaned inside, Your carburetor may also need to be thoroughly cleaned inside.

I have an air leak in intake line


What do I do if my pool/spa pump is loosing suction or prime?

Answer: by Osko Pool n Spa Pool Pump Losing Suction or Prime If your Swimming Pools Filter system looses Prime, it is caused by one of the following conditions.
Note: The lost of suction/prime is caused a leak which in turn sucks air into the system. The lost of suction/prime will be anywhere from the Main Pool Skimmer(s) to the Pool Pump. It will NOT be from the Pool Pump to the Pools Main Return(s).
1) First make sure that your water level is high enough so that the skimmer is not sucking air.
2) Check the Pump Pot Housing Lid Seal and be certain that its completely sealing and is not
Sucking air into the system. Check the lid for cracks. If either condition is true, replace the Pump Pot Lid Seal and/or entire lid
3) Check all fittings, clamps and hoses from the pools skimmer to the Pools Pump Pot Housing for wear, tightness and leaks.
4) Check Pool Pump Pot Housing for cracks.
If everything aforementioned in good working order, the next thing to check is the Pump Pot Housing Main Seal and the Pumps Impeller and finally the pump.

5) While the Pool Pump Motor is running, carefully inspect the area where the Pump Pot Housing attaches to the Pump Motor. See if there is any water leaking. Next, spray the area with water and see if the water is sucked into the Housing. If so, your Main Seal is damaged.
6) Disassemble the front half of the Pump Pot Housing from the back half and inspect the Pump Motor Impeller. (This is a high suspect part). See if there is any sign of wear or breakage. (This happens over time from debris in the water passing over the impeller). If so, your Impeller is damaged.
7) Re-inspect the Pump Pot Housing Main Seal by standing the partially disassembled upright, with the Pump Motor towards the ground. Pour water over the impeller and into the cavity. See if the water leaks thru to the outside of the Pump Pot Housing. If so, your Main Seal is damaged.
8) Remove the cover from the rear of the Pump Motor. Using a large standard blade, (straight), screwdriver or wrench... turn the main motor shaft. Listen for grinding and/or rumbling and feel for any restrictions while turning. If you hear or feel either, your bearings and/or brushes are damaged.
If everything seems to be in good working order, then you need a new pump... not just replacement parts

Go go traveller mobility scooter lurches forward when finger is released off forward control lever. mum has problems getting it to move forwards smoothly and slowly without it suddenly moving forwards...

That lever is attached to a pot. Pots have this nasty habit of oxidizing. You can either replace it or get some CRC QD Contact Cleaner. Wash it down trying to get as much cleaner into the pot as you can. These pots are normally not sealed find a little hole and spay it there. While your in the control head use the cleaner to clean anything you find in there. Stall having problems contact me.

Does the 650 series 190 cc lawn mower have a fule filter & carborator, because mower starts and quits in about 5 secounds, where are these parts located on the motor

The carburetor should be on the right side of the engine, opposite side as the exhaust. Do you have to prime this engine to start it? If so, it is running on the prime and therefore it is not getting fuel into the carburetor or picked up by the main jet. Either way, the carburetor has debris in it and needs to be cleaned out. If the carburetor sits on the fuel tank, change the diaphram while you have it apart.

I hope this helps get you going.

I have a Wagner 834cw15. Spraying fine 10 mins ago. Now...can't get it to prime. Any suggestions? Spraying oil based kilz

I cannot find model 834
Check your owner's manual for troubleshooting steps
We used paint sprayers every day for years.
The prime valve goes bad
The steel balls that direct the paint between prime and hose, wear out
The steel ball that holds prime and hose pressure wears out

The steel balls can also get stuck
Turn prime lever on
Take a hammer and tap/bang front of paint sprayer until ball comes loose
I cannot see your sprayer so I don't know where the ball is located
The photo below says, keep lever up >> in your case lever is down or in prime position while tapping


To post a photo of your paint sprayer so I can see it:
Read: then add comment at page bottom and it sends me an e-mail
I will be here for another 45 minutes. Its 526 cst

My Scooter slows waaaay down to almost stop, then goes, then slows, then goes. Speed dial d/n seem to make any difference? Does this even with batteries changed out to new?

Sounds like a throttle pot fault (the part that the throttle lever is attached to). This would need testing at a dealer or with a volt meter (set to ohm's) and if found to be faulty, will need replacing. If you test it yourself, there is usually a number on the top of the pot, usually 5k or 20k and this is what you need to set your meter too. Place the probes from the volt meter, black onto the centre wire and red onto either of the other wires (there should be 3) and slowly press the throttle lever first forward, then reverse, and constantly keep an eye on the reading from the volt meter. The reading should go up to approx. the number on the top of the pot, i.e. a 5k pot should read about 4.9 to 5.1 ish on the meter. If this number fluctuates up or down quite rapidly while the lever is held in a static position, it will indicate a faulty pot. This is in fact a common fault with nearly all makes and models of scooter and usually a fairly cheap and quick repair.
