Look for a reset button somewhere on the motor, or a bad switch.

How do I check a battery operated mower? It stopped working.


Have a close look at the blade. It may have jammed up with a stone or stick or something and melted the inside mounting. The blade may be spinning on the shaft and not actually be turning by the motor now.

Yard man pull cord will not pull


Remove spark plug and see if you can spin the blade . If the motor spins than the pull cord assembly is seized up and needs to looked at and fixed. If the blade won't spin then the motor or the cord assembly is seized . Make sure you remove the spark plug before trying to spin the blade.

Goodman heatpump fan runs, condenser wont start


Either the condenser fan has bad bearings, or it has a defective fan capacitor.
Turn off the breaker to the outside unit.
Spin the fan blade by hand.
If the fan blade spins easily and will spin a few revolutions with no problem the fan bearings are good.
If not, replace the fan motor due to bad bearings.
I am pretty sure you fan motor is bad because with a bad capacitor the fan motor will not get up to speed and may just sit and overheat.
I'm leaning toward a bad fan motor.

Replace the capacitor inside the control panel on the outside unit. The top of the capacitor may be puffed up.
The fan motor may also be going bad. Change the capacitor first. It will have to be changed anyway if the motor is bad.

The blade will not turn on my Ranch King 6.0. I cannot budge the pull cord and can barely turn the blade manually. What can I do?


check to see if it is if the cylinder is full of gasoline. remove spark plug and turn motor over.
caution, disconnect and ground spark plug wires, do not stand in front of spark plug hole, you may get sprayed with gasoline. spin motor with starter or pull rope.
if this doesn.t free up the blade look under it for "stuff around the drive shaft. clear it out.
other solutions are expensive and involve bent cranks.

Washer starts to spin up then trips breaker


Good day,
Not the transmission. The motor could be stalled by a defective transmission, but the motor would trip off on it's own internal long before the home breaker.
Sounds like a short in the motor itself. But ......
There is Murphy's law.
Your home breaker might have become so weak, it IS the problem.
You really need an amp probe to check the washers draw, at the circuit breaker panel.

If you cannot do that and are comfortable dealing with electrical, you can swap equal value breakers, to be sure.

I have a CH WL611701AJ compressor. The motor starts and runs for approx 15-20 seconds before blowing breaker. I have replaced both capacitors, still blows breaker. Removed piston to allow motor to...


This may seem a bit simplistic but how are you hooked up to the outlet? Are you using an extension cord or is the compressor plugged in only using the supplied power cord?
If you are using an extension cord then you are going to pop the breaker every time you use it. Infact the manual states

"Never use an extension cord with this product. Use additional air hose instead of an extension cord to avoid power loss and
permanent motor damage. Use of an extension cord voids the warranty."
Air compressors don't like extension cords.
It simply draws to much for an extension cord to handle.
Depending on whether or not your warranty is out there is a simple solution. Find the biggest gauge extension cord you can


If your not using an extension cord and it's ran in the past where it's plugged in now then check the circuit because there must be new draw on the breaker

You said the breaker is 20amp. correct? The compressor should be run on a breaker dedicated to the compressor only.

Even though you should use a longer hose instead of a longer power cord you can get away with it. But forget about wire gauge size you need to think wire diameter. The extension cord I made for my compressor is approximately 3/4" thick. That is the only way I was able to use an extension cord on mine. A good place to get that size cable is a boat supply store. The cable used for shore power on boats works.
Hope this helps but if not please let me know and I'll try and help anyway I can to solve your problem.

OUT SIDE FAN DOES NOT START WHEN A/C UNIT COMES ON. tHE FAN WILL START IF YOU GIVE THE BLADE A SPIN MANUALLY.


Be careful.....! If it starts when you push it you can hurt yourself seriously from the spinning blade. Sounds like your motor has a bad capaictor. Turn off the power (circiut breaker). Remove the old capaictor. Find the rating on the side. Replace it with the same rated size. If the motor has been subjected to running without a good capacitor for a while you "might" also need to replace the motor.
Good luck........

Noise


Turn of the circuit breaker before doing this or plug out the power cord..
- check if the fan motor is not stuck up by touching the fan blade by your finger if it rotate freely. If stuck up full out the fan motor and put a little oil and rotate it manually until it turns freely.
- Check and rotate the fan blade manually and be sure that it is not mis align and not touching the fan blade frame.
- Check for loose bolts and screws that cause the fan motor vibration.
- Check for foreign object that obstructing the rotation of the fan motor.
- Check for defective bearing or bushing.
