You have a head float inside the head that has probally cracked and filled with water. You can take this apart yourself or your pool store will probally do this for you for just the price of the part. Then they can look over the whole thing for you. Just remove the head and bring it into the store. Good luck.

    You probally won't see any cracks but if you pull the float and shake it can you hear any water. If that's not it I'm lost without more info.

How to check the water flow valve

the valve lets you adjust the flow through the vac. start with it in middle position. if the unit is sluggish, you need to increase the flow by closing the opening. make sure that there is nothing caught in the unit. sometimes eating toys is more fun than cleaning a pool

I have a 1986 suzuki 650 savage the carb seems to have a problem. It started flooding gas coming out the over flow. I took it off and took the float cover off and replaced the needle needle set and float....

Yea these carbs can be a real pain sometimes to get right. First thing you need to do is varify the float seat is working and totally stopping all fuel flow.... and all the jets, main, pilot and choke circuit are absolutely clean. Bench test the float needle valve by connecting a hose to the carb fuel line nipple and letting gas gravity feed as it would in a run position. if it tests ok, remount it on the bike...
i'm guessing you have a vacuum petcock on this year model? If you do, it needs to be inspected.
In the "on" position you should have no gas flow coming through the petcock, In the "prime" position it free flows. If there is a hole in the diaphram the engine will **** gas and not air (vacuum) through the hose and it will flood. If you don't have a vacuum line on your petcock then it is a different kind. Be sure to check your crankcase, it could be way past full with gas that has entered, dont start your engine like that...drain it all out. make sure the air filter is dry. You will have to replace the spark plugs...a gas soaked plug won't fire.
Good luck, i hope this helps.

My 2006 klx 250 won't fire, no fuel in float bowl, Tank is full, I drained the float bowl to try to get it to start and now no fuel is getting to the bowl

Check the filter screen on the fuel tap for blockage etc. Also check the tap for anything that may have lodged in it and blocking it. Check the fuel pipe too.

Water is not flowing into Bosch diswasher


When the Dishwasher is not filling in, you'll need to check for the water inlet valve, the filter screen and the float switch/assembly. Also check for the float assembly inside the dishwasher. When water is filling your dishwasher, a float rises along with it. As the float reaches a certain threshold level, it shuts off the flow of water, thereby preventing a leak. Sometimes the float can get stuck in the wrong position in your dishwasher, and it can prevent your dishwasher from filling. Sometimes it can happen due to float valve and on other occasions due to float switch. Inspect the water hose coming to the dishwasher for any blockages.
If these are fine then it's due to Water Inlet Valve. Use a multimeter and check for the continuity on inlet valve. If you don't get any value on the multimeter then you'll need to replace the water inlet valve assembly. Hope this helps... Please post back for any further assistance.

Polaris 380 stand on nose while on will not move to wheels on ground what could be the problem

First, check to confirm that the blue restrictor disk is installed in the UWF to decrease water flow. It sounds like you are getting too much water pressure. You could also install the red restrictor disk to decrease water flow even more. If this does not work, verify the back-up valve is cycling. Hold the valve out of the water and watch the jet. It should come on and go off. Make sure that your thrust jets are working properly and are positioned correctly. Also, try removing the head float and shaking it. If there is water in the float, you will want to get a new one. Finally, check the hose floats to make sure they are
spaced evenly. One of these soultions should make your pool cleaner function properly. If you need additional help, please let me know.
