The spinning part at the base of the lawnmower has stopped spinning, and i cant figure out why. i think it has something to do with connection issues in the nick and the connection to the lawn mower it self.

Hello. Most likely the nut which holds the blade tight has loosened enough that the motor spins the shaft but the blade just sits there and doesn't spin. This is an easy repair. You will need a large crescent wrench, or the properly sized open end wrench and a 2 foot long piece of 2x4 lumber. Use the lumber to "lock" the blade against the frame once you have the nut fairly tight. Then give it one more turn to be sure the nut doesn't loosen up on you again. It is best to do this job without turning the mower upside down as doing that will cause the oil to go into the air filter and then it will not start. If this is all basically greek to you ask a neighbor or a friend for help. It is really only a two minute job. J.

    I totally wrote that wrong, what i really ment to say was a Feather lite FX265 Xtreme weed wacker. The Neck part is twisting and the part at the bottom that actually wacks the weeds has stopped spinning. Sorry!

Final high speed spin very noisey


Something is causing the drum to be way out of balance. Does it bang and make noise when it's spinning empty? Probably not. Is something stuck on the side (inside of course) of the drum, causing it to shake when spinning? If not, a spring or shock absorber (connecting drum to sides, bottom or top of machine) has broken or come loose.

I have a Kenmore HT4 front washer and it washer is making a loud noise when it is in the spinning cycle. It sounds like the inside cycle is hitting up against something. It seem to wash okay and we...


There is only two things that I can think of 1: The bearings are going or 2: something has got under the door seal and is in between the metal drum and the plastic cover (around the drum). Could be something like a coin or even a bra wire.

Circuit shortcut, I think...


I think something else is happening, windows cant work mechanically, if it stops it stops. What is probably happening is that there are programmes or driver problems running in the background and the system is as you think freezing and starting again. Run an antispyware scan and also see if the same thing happens when the pc is in safe mode (F8 on boot up and select start windows in safe mode), if not then it is more than likely a driver issue, but it is then down to a process of illimination.
