If you stored it for a long period of time (three weeks or more) the batteries have worn down and need to be replaced. These type of batteries must be charged at least once a week to maintian life in them.

My chair has been sitting for three years now won't take a charge and run did the main battery die

Time for a new battery. The worst thing you can do to a battery is let it sit for a long time. Once the battery was activated it is best to keep it charged while not in use. Use a trickle charger while storing your chair.

Why does my float keep sticking on my Honda GCV160e lawn mower engine even after fitting a new carburetor?

I found a break down of the carby and I am wondering if the needle has been correctly assembled back to the float tang
there should be a small spring that attaches the needle to the float with a smaller in in the end of the needle that is coil spring loaded
This set is to provide a manual release of the needle of the seat when the fuel level falls and so prevents sticking and the coil spring arrangement is to prevent the needle allowing fuel in from the ripples in the fuel as it vibrates
Yes you bought a new carby and it ran well
However there may have been a hair in the fuel and that caused a problem that you sought to fix by taking it to a garage rather that a mower repair shop
garage mechanics seldom have an intimate knowledge of small engines and so reassembly of the carby may miss setting the needle to the float correctly
As to fuel gums etc , I would discount that as it is not old enough and left sitting long enough for that to occur
fuel left for long periods (6 months or more ) does deteriorate but an fuel stabilizer additive ( from any auto spares shop) will overcome that problem
My suggestion is that you fit an inline fuel filter to the tank hose and have the carby inspected by a honda small engine ( mower shop) to ensure that it is as was originally purchased

Hoveround won't move.

Double check to be sure drive levers are fully engaged. Go down and up a few times. If problem persists have Hoveround come and check it out. One of the drive motors may have shorted out when you continued driving with gravel in the wheel.

HBW0777 Liftmaster garage door opener will not close unless wall button is held down. Weirdly enough it only does this in early fall to early spring for last 3 years. What can I do to fix it?

Have the wiring checked out for proper voltage and ground, when it is acting up. The seasonal change may affect the ground rod, it may not be well grounded.

Screen won't light up

If your phone screen won't light up then you will need to take the phone into to a repair store unless your phone is less than a year old. All cellphones have a manufacturer's warranty or if you have insurance on the phone. If its less than a year old then take it to your provider in the store because it falls under lg to fix/replace your phone.

Mower starts but wont keep has petrol and oil,it had carberetta serviced last year.

You might have the same problem as had last year, did you burn all the old gas out last year before storing for season? If not you will have to drain old out and probably remove and clean your carbureator it probably gummed or varnished up from old gas, hope this helps you

Stalls, with oil runing out the exhaust

you have a valve that is stuck in the open position head will need to be removed
then spray valves with wd40 and turn engine over a few times watching to see both valves open and closing,once that is working install head with new head gasket.this is caused by not properly storing the unit. gas should be drained at the end of every season and then ran to burn all gas off from carb and fuel lines once it quits remove sparkplug shoot a tablespoon worth of oil in the cylinder crank engine over for 10-15 seconds to distribute oil on cylinder walls and valves then re install plug now your unit is winterized ready for the next season
