Question about Ryobi 30 Cubic Centimeter Curved Shaft Gas Trimmer

BC 30 wont start after engine is hot

I had this problem after the first half hour of use so I returned the machine for another one and the new one does it too. I am at altitude, 7200', and am 2 hours away from dealer/repair so I live with it but it is frustrating. If engine is allowed to cool, 30 minutes, starts right up. A real pain. Any suggestions?

Check that you are using the correct values for the fuel mixture.
One major symptom of an old, or incorrectly mixed fuel, is overheating.
Also another possibility, is that the timing could be an issue.
But if you find the engine revs up ok, don't re-adjust the timing.
There ya go ;)
Good luck with that, & don't forget to rate ;)

My hot tub has an issue. Only half the display is working, there's no heat and the jets wont turn on. If I trip the curcit, I can get the hot tub jets for 10-30 seconds and that's it. HELp

Almost all hot tubs use 230 volt AC power which comes from the power company in two power wires plus one common common wire. You get common 115 volts between a common and either other wire. "Half way" working could well be an attempt to run on only one of the wires. There is also likely to be a ground fault circuit breaker in the wiring which makes sure current going out to the tub is all returned via the wires and not through someone's legs to ground. If you're comfortable with an AC voltmeter check some voltages but understand that 230 volts is way into the killing range. Two people present and well insulated probes are important.

If this is happening when it is hot out you might be having vapor lock. The hot aior turns the gas to vapor and the engin stalls. In a half hour it cools enough to go back to a liquid. While you on the highway the rushing air keeps the gas cool. Most car have something that trys to prevent it, The camery sends vapor back to the tank if the gas filter is orented right.

Battery charging

Depends on how much the battery is in use, and how much battery life is left.
If it's relatively new (3 years old) and fully empty, it could be full by 2 hours - 2 h 30 min. If it gets really hot before that time, it's full by then.

Ford econoline wont start

Click on the link. I tried to get all on the same page, hope you can read it? It's for the starter motor circuit. You need to test when problem is ongoing.
Make sure battery has a full charge and connections all good. I don't know liter size of engine, whether it is diesel or gasoline? The diagram is for 5.8L gas engine.
Any testing at starter motor make sure tranny is in park or neutral and the parking brake is set. Two voltage circuits at starter motor, one comes from the battery, hot all the time. The other circuit goes hot when starter relay is energized. Check the fuses for voltage in the diagram. The starter motor usually grounds through engine block.
Unless you can do some testing, I don't know how to help?
