Hello,Turn the power off and check inside the disposer. Make sure that the two metal impellers on the shredder plate can rotate through 360°. If they are stuck, try tapping the impellers with a wooden tool or utensil to allow them to swivel freely.then you put it on and you insinkerator will work as normal.
wish you good luck,

take care.

When runing petrol is comeing out of the top of number 2 carb then on low revs it spluters and dies


The carb is flooding because of a stuck needle valve in the float chamber. When the bike is running at higher revs, it is probably drawing enough fuel into the engine to run OK, but at low revs, the overflowing petrol will be getting into the engine in far too higher volume and flooding the cylinder, drowning the spark plug.

You will need to remove the float chamber from the carb, take out the pivot pin that the float hinges on in order to release the needle valve and clean it out. 99% of the time simply dropping the needle valve out, giving it a wipe with a lint free cloth and flushing a little clean petol through the inlet pipe to dislodge any obstruction will fix the problem. While the float chamber is off, check that there is no dirt in the bottom and that the entire chamber is clean and free of any muck.

There will probably be a drain valve on the side of the carb (Usually a brass screw set into the base of the carb float chamber at a slight angle). Before you go to the trouble of removing the carb from the bike, try this:

Turn off the fuel supply.
Put a cup under the carb to catch fuel.
Remove the drain plug and allow the fuel in the float chamber to run out.
Now the float is sitting at its lowest possible position inside the float chamber, turn the fuel supply back on and as petrol runs out of the drain hole, tap the carb sharply and repeadedly with the end of a screwdriver as you let about a pint of petrol flush through.
Turn off the fuel supply and replace the drain plug.

The flushing and tapping MAY dislodge the obstruction that is holding the needle valve open and fix the problem without having to remove the carb

My dishwasher is no longer cleaning properly. A


Clean out the area where food gets caught and consider using different dishwashing tablets - especially the Calgon ones which clean out the drains of teh machine whilst cleaning the dishes.

Alternitivly you should call in a plumber to clean the pipes (Or purchase the equiptment to do it yourself, there are often all-in-one cleaners that'll flush out the pipes)

How do i drain my pool with a hayward variflow pump?


To Flush out the filter with the backwash setting. The backwash setting releases trapped particles from the filter back into the swimming pool. You may need to alternate between the rinse and backwash settings until the water runs clear in order to unblock your filtration system and flush out clogs. To Rinse away dislodged items from the backwash setting. The rinse setting flushes clean water through the pipes and carries away any particles or clogs freed during the backwashing. To Drain the pool select waste on the multiport valve. This sends the water directly to the drain rather than back into the swimming pool. Close the filtration equipment and stop the pump with the closed setting. You should only use the closed setting when you turn the pump off. This function allows you to remove the strainer basket, clean the filter tank and perform other swimming pool maintenance on the filtration system.

Dishwasher won't drain


I rethought your problem and will provide a generic answer that is common to your brand of DW....

GE dishwashers will have a sump entrance screen ( #4 ) that should be removed and checked for any gookus, see 1 or 2 screws on the cover top, which is behind the lower spray arm. Almost all ( some newer GE dishwashers have a separate drain pump and motor - but for our purpose, we will talk about the most common GE dishwashers ) GE dishwashers have a drain solenoid ( #1 ) that can fail and stop the draining. If the solenoid cannot pull in the silver plunger, the drain port will not open to allow the motor and pump assembly to drain the water out. The solenoid can be ohmed with an ohm meter for continuity, or tested to see if it is receiving 110-120 volts AC. Many GE dishwashers have a self clean filter ( #3 ) inside at the back. The draining water must pass through a plunger in the self clean filter body. This can get clogged up, or the plunger may twist and distort and not allow the draining water to get past. The filter can be removed from the inside and the plunger will twist out of the self cleaning body for testing/checking. Next obstacle for the draining water in the back flush valve ( #2 ). This valve can twist or distort and block the water flow as well. The drain port will need to be accessed to check this flapper valve, the drain port will untwist from the self clean filter body. All hoses in-between the items mentioned above and the drain hose itself all the way to the house plumbing should be checked for restrictions.


Some extra filter, draining tips and pictures....

During the wash and rinse modes of the cycle, soiled water falls down the back of the tub and into the filter area. The water comes through the filter and back into the tub. During the wash and rinse periods all ( we hope! ) the water will pass through the filter. The soil will settle into the collection chamber and is held there. When the dishwasher goes into the pump out mode the water in the sump is pumped through the collection chamber. This closes the piston valve to the inside of the tub. The pump flushes the collection chamber of all the food soil and pumps it down the drain. A check valve is located in the drain line port. This valve allows the water to flow in the drain direction only and prevents the water from coming back into the tub. The drain line check valve must close in the back flow direction or the piston valve in the collection chamber may not reopen into the tub after the pump out is complete. Water should "fall" through the filter and go back into the tub....the heavier food particles go down into the chamber and are collected.

Grinding/Rubbing noise?


the unit has a "food chopper" inside the pump sump. it is to chop up "food" items and not bones, seeds or other items. you can keep running the unit and see if after 2 or 3 loads the noise goes away. ie: the item get chopped up small enough to go out the drain.
if it doesnt go away, then you will need to get into the wash pump and see what is stuck in the sump.
its not hard to take apart and you will find whatever shouldnt be in there.
