Ryobi electric log splitter won't return to startposautomaticaly

Ryobi electric log splitter was working fine and returned to the start position automatically I ran about 5 chunks of wood through it with the bleeder valve closed, did not know that it had one?but now it won't return unless i hold the forward lever down and returns incredibly slow in about 60 seconds i bought it used and can't find a manual.did I get duped on this purchase? do you know where I can find a manual? or probably parts? I think deep down I knew that you couldn't have a quiet splitter and listen to some tunes while you split your wood! thanks guys for whatever help you can offer

We have one of these splitters and the only problem has been a control valve sticking down. Oiled the valve button with silicon oil which seems to have helped. Be sure to close the bleeder valve when putting the machine away. We bought the machine from Home Depot. Use some headphones for your music! We have split rounds much larger than recommended by splitting from different sides. Hope this helps!

Wood splitter is pushing hydrolic fluid out fill tube on the return stroke


make sure that the ram is in the fully retracted position
empty oil reservoir until the oil level is at the required position normally about 1/4 inch below filler plug
if oil is added with the ram at any extension then the extra oil will be pushed back into the reservoir and over flow out

Log splitter won't return to start position


well it's a complete guess due to fact you didn't mention model or mfg or even a photo , but most log splitters have a auto return tripper device this should activate ,either a switch or hydraulic lever to reverse the flow of oil from the cylinder after a log is split , some models even use large springs to force the cylinder back into its sleeve after it extends out , I guess springs could break ? this would be easy to clearly see with a close visual inspection

Masport log splitter how do you rewire a 7tonne pressure log splitter


Make sure the device is unplugged from the 240 VAC power source.
Connect the 240 VAC line and neutral wires to the momentary switch. Examine the motor wires to determine line and neutral.
This log splitter is equipped with a control system that requires to be operated by both hands of the user - Left hand controls the
hydraulic control lever while right hand controls the pushbutton
switch. The log splitter will freeze upon absence of either hand. Only
after both hands release the controls, the log pusher starts to return
backward to the starting position.

Electric log splitter motor hums but won't run


suggest you get information on repairing log splitter, not dryer. have the same problem, and no replacement parts available. must be in the electrical, easiest would be capacitor, less the motor itself, take apart and see if windings burned, or smell electrical

Won't start , can not get primer to work even after replacing primer bulb.


If your fuel filter is clean, and none of the fuel lines are pinched, then you probably need to replace the diaphragms, gaskets, and screen in the carb. Some carbs with the primer bulbs mounted on the carb have a check valve in the primer system. This is the least likely problem, but it is possible that the check valve is defective.

Chain stopped working whilst sawing log on my new ryobi electric chainsaw. Can't find a way of rectifying, help please


As it is a new machine, you should return it for warranty repair or exchange. Make sure that the electricity source will power a working lamp. Good luck!

Ryobi cs30 starts fine, but idles way too fast after warm up. I mean screaming fast. Throttle return works fine and idle adjustment is set at it lowest.


you need to take your air filter off and look into the throat of the carbruetor to see if the ""Butterfly""
is still intact and working not the choke butterfly its the one closest to the engine that moves with the throttle and be sure it is still there and moves as you move the throttle.... open is horizontal and closed is not quite 90 Degrees. check to see it is tight and in the center if the throat when closed.
you may have to remove the carb. to see it function more clearly
make sure the throttle cable is free and not binding any where and to be sure of its adjustment to allow the throttle to return to the idle position.
lubricate the cable from the trigger to carb. wd 40 is ok.
if all above is ok then find the L on the carb. and ccw it 1/8 turn to ritchen it alittle to help slow the idle down some to a respectable level
