Best guess would be that the pressure switch is defective as it is what tells the motor to start and stop. once the compressor comes up to pressure the switch should open and break contact, sometimes one of the switch contacts will burn shut and stick but not the other.

Not getting gas


The bulb usually doesn't feel that way, you're thinking of a small 2-cycle machine where the bulb will fill up with fuel and offer resistance when pushed. A primer on a snowblower is merely to get fuel flowing to the carb from the tank, whereas the bulb on 2-cycle items actually purges air from the fuel circuit. If you keep pressing the primer you should see fuel drip from the carb inlet. Btw, if you see where an air filter might be on other motors, a little metal cup looking thing, try removing the bolts and flipping it over so the fuel drips out easier and snow doesn't have the chance to fall into it if it were facing up. Once you see fuel dripping out, provided you ran it dry last season when you put the blower away and the carb isn't gummed up with varnish, it should start on full choke. Give it about 3-5 seconds and move it to half choke. Once it seems to want to run on its own, open the choke completely and you should be warmed up and ready to go. Also always remember to let engines idle a bit to cool down if you've been running them at high rpms.

How do i check fluid for convertable top


"How do I get the air out of my hydraulic system"?
  • Remove the reservoir plug on the motor pump. Leave the plug out and do not put back until you have finished.
  • Fill the reservoir 3/4 full with fluid (to the bottom of filler plug hole). Put a rag under the hole to catch overflow that will occur as system fills.
  • Run the pump for 15-20 seconds. Stop. Check your fluid level and refill to bottom of filler hole. Continue running the motor in the same direction for an additional 15-20 seconds. When the top gets to the end of cycle, check your fluid level, fill to bottom of filler hole, and run the motor in the opposite direction.
  • You are literally running the top all the way up and down sereral times. Checking the fluid level as you go and fill as required, leaving reservoir 25% empty.
  • When you are no longer able to add fluid, put the top in the down position. Check the fluid level one last time, should be to bottom of filler hole. Put the plug into reservoir.

    I have a 5 HP Coleman air compressor. I was using it to provide air to my plasma cutter which requires 60 psi to operate. Basically, air compressor's motor keeps running, but it's stopped creating air...


    You did not list model number, however if you have oilless type check the cylinder/piston by manually turning crank until piston is at top and examine cylinder for wear or scratches. If worn replace cylinder kit for full pressure. If ok check reed valves /valve plate for wear or broken reeds. If oil bath type, problem is usually air leak or reed valves / valve plate. As a general rule, you can keep track of wear by noting how many minutes it takes to fill the tank to cut-out. As the compressor wears it will take increasingly longer to fill. When new, and depending on tank size/ hp, most compessors fill within 2 ~ 5 min. Good luck

    Ingersall-Rand T 30 Model 2340 Motor overload trips when trying to fill air tank. How long should it take to fill the tank with air with tank empty. If tank is full it may cycle one time when using air.


    You need to know the size of the tank before you can figure pump up time from empty to full. It sounds like you have a bad tank check valve. A bad check valve typically causes the motor overload to trip when starting.

    Our oil tank ran out of oil. We just had it


    On the burner unit near where the inlet line enters the unit you will find a little bleeder screw It should require a small 1/4 or 5/16" wrench to open it DO NOT remove it just open it a full turn or 2
    Fuel and air will come out of the top of this fitting Once no more air comes out close the bleeder, clean up any spilled fuel and restart the furnace
    You may have to do this a couple of times to get all the air out of your lines

    Agitator starts at begining of cycle before washer is full


    Please be carful as running the agitator without enough water will overheat and kick out the motor, however it should be ok when it resets itself.
    Yes, the machine should stop agitating when you lift the lid so this too is part of the problem.
    After looking at the print I can only suggest that the cam contacts in the timer ( contacts 12 and 14) that start the motor are burned and stuck together.

    93 convertible top wont go down


    This happenrd to me the first few times after filling the tank. When the roof stops push the switch to up then back until movement stops then go back to down, eventually it will get rid of all the air in the system and the roof should start to work.
