SOURCE: My 2 H.P. electric motor on the Task Force 5 ton log splitter hums when I depress the start button but will not tturn

It probaby is the capacitor. Check for a loose connection or burnt wire on it. Use an old timey el cheaper meter on ohms to test it. Remove the capacitor being careful not to discharge it and check between the terminals. If you see a slight hop while reversing polarization then the cap is fine. If it has no reading it is open inside which is probably the problem. If it was shorted then the needle on the meter would move over and stay and that would cause the circuit breaker to flip everytime you try to start it. Probably a bad capacitor. Easy fix.

My kohler engine on my oregon log splitter will start but will only run for about 1 minute before cutting off

I had a similar problem (only not with a log splitter). The problem was that the fuel filter was clogged. When the motor was off, the dirt would fall down to the lower side of the filter, allowing fuel to pass until the fuel was flowing again. It may not be your answer but it's an easy and low-cost fix. Best of luck!

Ryobi electric log splitter won't return to startposautomaticaly

We have one of these splitters and the only problem has been a control valve sticking down. Oiled the valve button with silicon oil which seems to have helped. Be sure to close the bleeder valve when putting the machine away. We bought the machine from Home Depot. Use some headphones for your music! We have split rounds much larger than recommended by splitting from different sides. Hope this helps!

I have a craftsman gt6000 18hp kohler garden tractor. I has been working fine, but last week I noticed a loud single click when i turn on the ignition and a loud single click when i turn off the ignition....

The noise is likely coming from the starter solenoid which is the heavy duty relay that sends battery power to the starter motor. If this is the case clean the wire connections going from the battery, to the solenoid and to the starter and try it again.
