I don't have a lot of info to go on here but make sure all saftey requirements are in order. Make sure all controlls are in the start position,safety switches not in there proper place will prevent ignition.Cheers to you!!

Master gourmet rice & slow cooker manual

I need one as well. I know the basics of slow cookers, my question isn't there. I do know to start the slow cooker part early, it has a knob for off-low-high-warm so I just follow basic slow cooker recipes & instructions. I do know to push the lever down on the rice cooker side to start cooking. Since I misplaced the instructions basically I need to know how much rice/water to put in & about how long it takes to cook it, but I'd like the manual anyway. master gourmet rice & slow cooker model #02241

I can't figure out how to start the mower. Unable to decipher the Instruction booklet. Believed to be series 625. with the following: Self propelled electric key start with a primer. No choke present

Hi and welcome to FixYa. I am Kelly. The primer is the choke. You press ther primber bulb 3 times with the gas tank full and then hold / grip the safety bar at the top of the handle against the handle then either use the key start or recoil to start it. Just make sure the engine crankcase is filled with the correct amount of oil before starting. Sorry for being brief but it really is that simple.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,

I just purchased a new Victor 1220-3 Calculator. There were no istructions in the box. Can you email me the instructions or how can I obtain a copy of the manual? I can download from the internet. Jim

I couldn't find a manual for your calculator model .
It is a basic model though.
I suggest you check VICTOR TECHONOLOGY calculators page:
Look for a calculator model that looks like yours, click on "Details" and you'll reach another page from where you can download its manual.
They are selling a refurbished 1220-3 calculator, but they don't give any link to the manual.
You might also find that other manufacturers calculators look and function like yours.

I started mower in tall grass. It started up and immediately stopped. Could not get it started. Replaced battery. Charged 12 hours. Still will not operate. Green light is on. Noticed the blade seems to...

After charging the mower, you must place the safety key in the mower before it will start. On models that have a bail handle, be sure to pull the bail handle back to the mower handle before engaging the start lever. If your mower still does not start, remove the safety key and ensure the bail and start lever are in the "off" position. Then firmly re-insert the safety key, pull the bail handle to the mower handle and engage the start lever.

Note - It is important that the bail and start lever are returned to the "off" position before inserting the safety key.
Give it try, if it still will not operate you may have to take it in for service.
Good luck, let me know.

Toro electric start won't start manually

If it doesnt start manually,you have another issue to deal with. Whether it has electric start or not you should be able to manually pull start it. You can also get the model and serial number off the engine and contact your nearest toro dealer to have charger and key ordered. As far as a push button,it can be done,just a matter of finding someone to install one for you.
