Electric Edgehog spins, but has lost 90% of its power (no torque)

Electric Edgehog spins, but has lost 90% of its power/torque... it used to run like a circular saw, fast and furious, now it spins so weakly it seems you could stop the blad by grabbing it with your hand... My Black & Decker Edgehog has lost its power.

I also experienced this - the nut in the center had come loose. Tighten it with a ratchet wrench, and you will be good to go. The Edgehog really does handle most tough jobs for me so far.

What are torque values and sequence for 2000 toyota 4.7litre cyl heads

These are torque to yield bolts so I believe that you will need to use new bolts. Make sure that you run a tap into the holes to clean them out or you won't get an accurate torque reading. You also start from the inside bolts and work your way out. Torque in the above sequence to 24 ft/lbs and then following the same sequence turn the bolt 90 degrees. Once this is done follow the same sequence and turn the bolt another 90 degrees. This will put you at 180 degrees from the initial 24 ft/lb position.

Cylinderhead torque settings

I'm not sure what engine you have in your 95 grand am SO I will give you both the 4cyl and 6cyl Specs. Also you didn't ask for the torque sequence. I will include that as well for both. 2.3 DOHC Quad 4cyl: Torque sequence---> front ' 7 3 1 5 9 ' of engine ' 8 6 2 4 10 ' Step 1: torque bolts 1 thru 6 (26 Ft/Lbs & 90 degree turn) Step 2: torque bolts 7 & 8 (15 Ft/Lbs & 90 degree turn) Step 3: torque bolts 9 & 10 (22 Ft/Lbs & 90 degree turn) Recheck final torque in sequence *** CAUTION *** This engine uses "Torque To Yield" (TTY) head bolts that means they permanently stretch during the initial installation. New head bolts must be used when cylinder head is replaced or re-installed in order to obtain proper torque. 3.1 liter V6 Torque sequence--> ' 6 2 3 7 ' ' 5 1 4 8 ' Step 1: torque bolts in sequence to 33 Ft/Lbs Step 2: turn an additional 90 degrees Recheck final torque in sequence *** CAUTION *** This particular engine uses "Torque To Yield" head bolts(TTY) (that means the bolts permanently stretch during the initial installation.) You MUST use NEW head bolts when replacing or reinstalling the cylinder head in order to obtain the proper torque.

Retorque specicifications for head

Hi Moz, Make sure to use replacement bolts or if reusing, make sure none have stretched. The torque settings for the "A" series engine is 27 NM. After tightening to that torque, paint a dot of white paint onto each bolt head facing directly forward. Further torque settings use angle settings. Continue tightening a further 90 degrees. When all bolt have been tightened a further 90 degrees, continue an additional 90 degrees, (180 degrees) until painted dots on each bolt head face backwards. No re-torquing is required. Regards John

I just changed out a bad coupler, and now have squeaking and smoke coming from my Kenmore 90 series washer

It sounds like something is hanging up on the transmission. That may be what caused the coupler to go bad. Look at the brake assembly to see if it is tied up. If you see any black dust or particles, I would replace the brake pads and the clutch assembly. Here are the brake pads to order.
Here is the clutch assembly to order.

Torque for head for a 2.5 for an 1985 Buick Skylark

Loosen Headbolts in this order:

1 5 4
3 6 2

Tighten Headbolts in this order:

3 1 6
5 2 4

Following the tightening order, torque Head Bolts as following:

1. Torque All to 22 Ft Lbs
2. Torque all to 51 Ft Lbs
3. Loosen all 180 degrees
4. Loosen all 180 degrees
5. Torque Center Two bolts to 25 Ft Lbs
6. Torque Outer 4 bolts to 11 Ft Lbs
7. Tighten all bolts 90 degrees
8. Tighten all bolts 90 degrees again

Make sure you tighten all of them down the first 90* and then go back and tighten them another 90*. Also make sure you put some lube between the bolt and the washer, and put some sealant on the bolt threads. Use GM Thread Sealant.

Continous loading & not playing

I had the same issue with mine. It is one of three problems.

  1. The DVD is dirty. Try cleaning it with window cleaner and a soft rag. Also try other media like CD's to see if the same thing happens. If it still won't play then it needs to be opened up.
  2. I don't suggest opening it up unless you are fairly good with tools. Although its not complicated, care needs to be taken to prevent electric shock. Once the unit 's lid has been removed plug it in carefully and insert a DVD. Watch closely for the DVD spinning. If your DVD does not spin try giving it a gentle spin in any direction. This will usually overcome any torque issues with the motor and allow the DVD to spin and play normally. If it won't spin at all despite gentle manual spinning then the motor for the DVD player has burned out and the unit will need to be replaced.
  3. If the DVD spins up and doesn't play that could mean a faulty laser system or a dirty laser lens. There are cleaning kits you can buy but I prefer the manual method. First UNPLUG the unit. Since you have the power off you can gently soak a cotton swap with 90% isopropyl alcohol or use denatured alcohol (methyl hydrate in Canada) Both are available at most hardware stores. Gently swab the small glass lens with the alcohol. Let it dry and try to watch the DVD again. If it still fails it will need to be replaced.

Powermate 5000 low voltage under load

It could be a bad board but it sounds more like a bad set of brushes. If there is less than 1/4 inch of the brush (eihter one) left I'd replace both of them. I'd also check the diodes on the board with a DMM.
