Question about Mtd 22" Yard Machine Push Mower

1 Answer

Runs for five seconds after being tilted up and put back down.

Cut the yard last week then put it away. Now it won't start. I tilted it up on the right side to look underneath it and then set it back down. It started but ran for five seconds with the choke pulled out. Now, it will do that every time if I tilt it up for a few seconds and set it back down. It just won't stay running. New gas, carb looks good, plug looks good, air filter good. Even the filter from the tank to the hose looks good.

Trash in the tank fuel line outlet. When you tilt it the trash moves and lets some gas in. Set it down and the trash goes back in the hole and shuts off the gas. No pressure to feed fuel so when you pull choke makes it run rich and then starves for gas again. Dump gas, disconnect the line at the carb. Put a clean tube (drinking straw, plastic tube, whatever will fit so you don't get gas in your mouth) in the gas line and blow air into the tank through the filter clearing the obstruction. Reconnect line then see if it runs longer before it shut off. If it does clean the tank and flush the dirt out.
If that doesn't change anything then it has to be a carb diaphragm leaking and it need a rebuild kit and fuel system flush.

Can not get the mac pro osx 10 5 8 to start with the utility disk or with regular start up my on pilot lite keeps blinking


Put the Mac install disk back in. Try pressing command-option-escape to force quit. If nothing happens, then press command-control-power to force a restart. If that doesn't work, press and hold the power button for five seconds or so until the computer shuts down. Power up the computer again, and hold the option key so you can select the instal disc for startup. Run Disk Utility again. Sometimes you get a tangled file reference that requires several tries to undo - this could be calling the sleep routine instead of what it's supposed to do.

Tip

Sight in your scope


I have given this tip to a dozen people this week. It will save you a ton of ammo. If you don't have a bore sighter of access to one, get a big cardboard box, cut V's in the top that the rifle will sit in nicely, remove the bolt. Find a target, 100 yards away, sight down the bore, tilt box, rifle to target, make sure it doesn't move, adjust scope to the same target. check to see if the rifle is still on, then check the scope again. This will put you on paper at 100 yards.

I'd start off with a hard reset by holding down the reset button down in the back of the router for 15 seconds, I usually cut the power, hold the button down for 15 seconds, power it back on, wait another 15 seconds, THEN I release the button.
That will set everything back to default. Once you've got the router up and running again I would check D-Links support page to make sure you've got the latest firmware version.
That should address your issue, if not, contact D-Link support for an RMA ;)

Symptoms look like a cam or crank sensor failure. Check the connections to these sensors and make sure that they are clean and on securely. If it is just a bad connection then the problem should be resolved. If however it is due to thermally induced cut out the chances are that when the engine has properly cooled right down the car will restart. If it does start it will probably shut down again within 15 minutes once the engine is hot and not restart until cold again. If you are able take the car to Autozone to have the error codes read from the on board diagnostics. If not replace both sensor units and this should cure the problem straight away. If you have a Check engine light lit then this can be cleared by disconnecting the negative battery terminal for five minutes
