Throttle spring fell out as I was trying to figure out why the blade would not spin with motor running at high speed. Need to things 1.it there a view of how the throttle spring goes in and how come it appears to be short. I took it apart and the flex shaft appears to be good and I can find anything broken. Thanks

It would help if you would tell us what device are you talking about, what happened and what you did to it before asking the question.

    It is a gas Trimmer/Brushcutter Model BL250. I noticed this probem after I started the trimmer that it would turn the blade.

  • Azrael SRL Jul 14, 2010

    If the spring appears short it's because it has broken and must be replaced. The Bolens BL250 doesn't have a blade, it has a wire that is doing the cutting. If you have installed a rigid blade then it has overstressed the centrifugal clutch and it has failed. Fixing  that is a job for a pro, it requires complete dismantling of the case and clutch and the parts aren't sold to customers.

Hi I have a stihl ts420 it works well and it cuts but the blade won't stop when it's on and it keeps spinning when I'm not holding the gas how can I fix that problem??


I don't know what all these people are talking about. If your saw is used frequently and not new anymore, it's very likely your clutch springs are worn to the point where they no longer hold back the clutch shoes from coming in contact with the clutch drum anymore and at ANY rpm, they contact the drum and cause it to spin. This also happens often when the saw is given throttle when the blade is binding, it wears the shoes and causes heat which weakens the springs. I'm not positive it's this, if you have ever tinkered with the carburetor it's possible it's idling too high yes, but I'm fairly certain that the clutch springs are worn or stretched out or perhaps one may be broken. This is why string trimmers sometimes keep spinning when the motor is at idle. Start the saw and let it get to operating temp, then without giving it any gas, lower the blade to a hard surface and see if it keeps running or if that stops the motor. If it stops immediately, it's a fair bet the clutch needs replacing.

Syma s107 hit a dangling string that got tied up instantly and seized the rotors. now lights up but blades don't spin when throttled. What can I do besides replace the helicopter?


I was flying my syma s800g and hit the ceiling fan chain. When I attempted to fly it would spin and fall over. The problem was I broke the two small plastic pins on the top rotor holder. Ordered a new top rotor and flies fine. Then on my s107 I flew into a door and the top rotor had zero spin although the motors worked. In that case the screw that sets the top rotor onto the middle shaft loosened resulting in no lift and also tilted and fell over. This was fixed by securing the set screw properly. So in both instances it was similar effects due to the top rotors not spinning in sync with lower blades.

Check the govenor spring to see that it is not stretched out or popped off...there should be a colored spring on the throttle plate where the throttle lever connects to...also, there are several holes in the plate where the spring attaches...these hole will set the sensitivity of the govenor...you may need to make it more sensitive to hold the engine speed high when engaging the blades

I have a Syma s032 that had its motors brushes distroyed in few flights. How to avoid premature wear? Is there another kind of motor that can be used on it? Thanks


You need to quickly throttle (left joystick) all the way down whenever you're about to crash or blade strike. Both motors have clutch to spin freely when in neutral. They will bounce off of anything if they can, i.e. if your hand isn't still pegging the throttle. But, if the blade (or blades) hit something that stops them while throttle is still being applied, one of three things will happen.
1) Blade will stop abruptly, putting grossly abnormal strain on the motor and those tiny little brushes inside. Motor may burn out. Every fraction of a second that throttle is being applied while blades cannot move, irreparable damage is almost certainly being done to the motor(s).
2) Blade(s) will break, maybe taking gears or shaft along for the ride.
3) or sometimes nothing seems to have happened, bird clunks to ground, you right it and continue flying.

however, if you throttle fully down, the motors engage clutches automatically and are effectively in neutral, spinning freely allowing the blades to bounce harmlessly off of whatever.

Throttle down when accident nears, and your motors will last for ages.

Hope this helps,

Yes, it sounds like you need to adjust the blade brake clutch (BBC). I have a PDF service manual that explains it. If you post your email address I can upload it to you. Here's an excerpt from the manual:

BBC
BBC Adjusting the Blade Brake
1. Stop the engine. Pull the wire off the spark plug.
2. Remove the two screws securing the screen
panel to the top of the mower housing as shown
in Figure 22. Remove the panel. (The panel they're
referring to is the red screen between the motor
and handle.)
3. Move the control bar down and lift up against the
handle. With the control bar against the handle,
measure the spring length (L) at the front of the
spring as shown in Figure 26.
4. If the spring dimension is greater than 32 mm
(1-1/4") an adjustment is needed.
5. To adjust, loosen the bottom jam nut on the blade
brake cable as shown in Figure 27. Adjust the top
jam nut until spring dimension is as near as
possible to nut; not less than 25 mm (1") See
note below.
NOTE: Adjusting the top jam nut too high can
cause the cable end to crush the plastic fitting
when the control bar is moved up against the
handle. If the spring cannot be adjusted to less
than 32 mm (1-1/4") before the cable end
contacts the plastic fitting, the clutch belt is worn
out and should be replaced. After replacing the
belt, adjust the cable per the above procedure.
NOTE: 1990 and newer models are equipped
with finger tip adjusters that do not require tools.
Use the same adjustment criteria on these
cables.

Throttle Problem


Hi
Your ESC is sensing an error. The error is either blade speed or a peripheral device - possibly servo or gyro. Sub the servos one by one. Check the blade tracking. Have you had any crashes lately? You should double check all the head assembly components.

My LSQ9549L is 7 yrs. old as well with an awful sound when spinning in high speed.
I've changed the agitator assy. as well as removed the drum and cleaned the soap build up on it.
Still makes a terrible sound in high speed spin. All other functions work.
Could it be the springs or coupling? I'm leaning towards it being the counter balance springs with it being rather weak. Could I be correct?
Your help is much appreciated.

My xj6 runs at high rpms and accelerates on its own


None of those possible problems have anything to do with idle speed. The first thing might be a very weak throttle return spring. The next would be a sticky throttle cable or foot feed pedal that isn't moving freely. Another possibility is a vacuum leak somewhere. Did changing the spark plug in #1 cylinder help the misfire? If not, you may have a partially plugged injector. Fixing the misfire will only increase idle speed some more. Look for an idle speed motor near the throttle body that is supposed to raise idle speed when the engine is cold and lower it back when the engine warms up. Check to see if it is holding the speed too high. If the throttle position sensor tells the computer where the idle speed motor is set, then it could have an effect on idle speed if the sensor is bad. The position sensor is just a fancy potentiometer. Hope some of this helps.

Wheels spinning when starting


The problem is your clutch not the slipper clutch but your clutch that is against your flywheel on the engige,What has happened is that the spring that goes around the clutch shoes has broken or came loose.That causes the clutch shoes to not disengage from the slipper and transmission, therefore when you start the truck it wants to drive forward usually it wont run or idle unless you apply the throttle. Sometimes it will stick in second gear and when you start it you give it throttle to keep it running and it takes off in second at a low idle.To solve this remove the engine and the clutch and i bet you will find that the spring is broke or came off.

If your slipper clutch needs adjusted usually you will apply throttle and all that happens is that your engine rebs up and the truck wont go forward unless you really reb it up and that is not good on the engine.

When revos are 2-3 weeks old it is common for the slipper to need adjusted a 1/4 to 1/2 turn,traxxas keeps them adjusted really loose from the factory that is why a lot of people have trouble trying to pull i wheelie with a revo.
