R front burner igniter won't activate. replaced switch for that burner still same problem. other 3 burners OK.

Hi Gary, Sounds like the electrode may be eroded so that the spark gap is a bit too big. Try CAREFULLY bending it ever so slightly towards the burner. I say carefully because the electrodes are ceramic sheathed, which you could crack. So you need to bend it above that point.

94 yz 250 fouling plugs bad

Could be fuel or oil fouling. Need to determine which first off. If it is black sooty fouling it is likely too rich also it too rich may be wet.

If oil fouling it is more likely to be much more material fouling and wet sticky material.

A wet, black and shiny deposit on plug base, electrodes and ceramic insulator tip indicates an oil fouled plug. The condition may be caused by one or more of the following: worn pistons, worn piston rings, worn valves, worn valve guides, worn valve seals, a weak battery or a faulty ignition system.

A dry, fluffy or sooty black deposit indicates an air/fuel mixture that is too rich, engine idling for excessive periods of time and/or enrichener usage for excessive periods of time.

A light brown, glassy deposit indicates an overheated plug. This condition may be accompanied by cracks in the insulator or by erosion of the electrodes and is caused by an air-fuel mixture that is too lean, a hot-running engine, valves not seating or improper ignition timing. The glassy deposit on the spark plug is a conductor when hot and may cause high-speed misfiring. A plug with eroded electrodes, heavy deposits or a cracked insulator must be replaced.

A plug with a white, yellow, tan or rusty brown powdery deposit indicates balanced combustion. Clean off spark plug deposits at regular intervals.

Milage to change spark plugs

If you have an old points distributor around 25.000miles If you have a ECM controlled engine then unless it shows a misfire in the fault codes forget about changing them. The reasoning is simple . In the old system the maximum current /voltage was 16.000volts which produced an arc that jumped across the electrodes of the plug. This acted as an arc welder and eroded the centre electrode.
In modern ECM cars the voltage generated is over 60.000 volts and so the current is less than 5 amps so there is no arc welding process hence no loss of centre electrode.
Modern cars like Mitsubishi with a V6 engine have the rear 3 plugs so positioned that changing the plugs is a very long and costly job, so they used platinum plugs in the rear bank and cheapies in the accessible bank . The rear plugs will last longer than the engine . HT leads are a different matter

Plastic shaving in wash from ring around basket. What could it be. Model GHW9400PW0 Whirlpool Duet

k where they came off from so you can put them back otherwise it will leak. Inspect the inside of the unit while the tub is out (bearings, etc) to make sure there isnt anything else. Hope this helps!

One gas burner in whirlpool gas stove top will not light when turned on. Has to be lit manual

the electrode on that particular burner has eroded or is dirty enough from boiled over items that it cant spark to ground anymore,you can try filing the electrode off carefully with a fine nail board to see if its just dirt or its actually defective

Amana stove top burners click, and gas comes out, but won't ignite. It's a self cleaning ARG7200, about 11 or 12 years old. Oh, and can I lift this top? I'm used to doing that with old pilot-light...

A weak erratic spark from one or more electrode usually indicates a bad spark module. No spark from one of the electrodes while the others work properly usually indicates a bad electrode. Inspect the porcelain of the electrode for cracks, chips or burn marks. If there are any, the electrode should be replaced. If one of the burner knobs is turned to the light position and nothing happens, but all the others function correctly, the spark ignition switch for that one burner is likely bad. The switch can be taken out of the system and checked with an ohmmeter. It should close for continuity at the light position only.

2001 caviler and it will turn over and want start

it could be a lot of things.... did the car just die? was the weather wet? does it turn over fast..? is there any spark getting to the plugs? plug a spark tester into the plug wire and set it to a low gap .030" see if the arc jumps the gap. if it does pull a spark plug out and look at it. it should be golden brown with a fairly square electrode. the ground should be over top of the electrode not eroded away . can you smell fuel when u try to start the car? when u crank the car over and it doesnt start are the spark plugs wet?

Left xenon ligth is not out... but has changed color from the cool blue ... to a slight pinkish color? is it the bulb or something else

xenon bulb has two electrodes and they will erode away if the bulb is old. The color that you see is probaby the erotion of the electrode mixed with the inert gas and metal halide. All HID bulb will change color over time. For example a brand new 4300K yellowish bulb will eventually turn into a 5000k color bulb which is purple and white

If your bulb is not too old but the colour has changed then that means your bulb has premature problem. Frequently switching on and off the bulb can age the bulb by up to 50%.

I strongly recommended to change both bulbs, so they have even color.
