Well my ariens platinum sno 24 inch which is 3 years old has a rotor jam this morning and some smoke came out of it so i turned it off. What can i do?


The smoke was probably from the drive belt. You have to clear the jam first, and you may also need to replace the drive belt.

Sounds like you have a weak battery..try giving it a good charge and try again many times engines will not start with a battery that turns the engine over but not fast enough to start.. Good luck.

HI i have karzima r which is 5 years old. but from past one month it start throwing white smoke from exhaust. this is only in the morning & evening start up. and white smoke only come out when i r


white smoke= lean fuel, dark smoke= rich fuel. white smoke also could mean mean a blown head gasket allowing water to mix with the oil (very bad). Run it for a bit then take out and look at the oil filler pug. if the oil is frothy or bubbly and has the color of hot chocolate there is water in it. Replace head gasket and flush all systems immediately! Pary for the best

I have a 2006 ford F350 that is hard to start in the morning (cold weather) and blows black smoke when it finally starts. The batteries are less than a year old.


Not knowing your experience with diesel motors,if the glow plugs are not being allowed to cycle it makes starting the motor cold much harder. If it has a block heater package that also helps to plug in. Keeps the coolant warm and in turn keeps the motor warm.

Sony bravia on fire!


This type of failure is not common. You indicate that the set is slightly over a year old. As a first step, I would attempt to request a warranty repair from Sony. If the set is close to the 1 year limit, it may be a bit of a fight, but you may get this repaired under warranty. Realize that you will need to speak to a manager, not the initial rep on the phone. Have a copy of your purchase receipt with the purchase date. Now to the probable problem. In all likelyhood, a capacitor has failed in the power supply section. Depending upon its function within the circuit, it is possible that it caused the smoke. Until you have a final resolution with Sony, DO NOT open up the unit. Once you do, any possibility of warranty service is voided. Please update this with any progress you make with Sony and we'll continue from there. Dan
