I over heated,the serpentine belt snapped. Opened the hood to find steam rapidly coming out of both the antifreeze and out of the engine right by the head gasket. It wasn't smoke not blue or black jus


Perform a compression test on your cylinders. One unfortunate result of overheating is the blown head gasket. Without compression your motor will not run. Tester are not super expensive or some stores will lend tools.

1993 Subaru loyale no compression, have spark at the coil just won't start


The engine can't run without compression in the cylinders. The plug will still spark, but without a compressed air/fuel mixture to burn and power the cylinder down, the starter will just keep spinning the engine over, cranking forever and not starting.
Check if your timing belts are good and not broke. Cylinder compression is dependent on good piston rings, intake and exhaust valves that open and close at right times and that seal good when closed, and a head gasket that seals up the cylinder from leaks where compression could blow into the water passages, or oil passages, or to outside of engine.
If the timing belts are good, a leak-down test of each cylinder will pinpoint where compression is lost.
Good luck with the Sube, great cars, great engines, but the head gaskets are a common problem.

The pull cord will not pull to start the trimmer


i had a problem like this on an old mower, the cord had become tangled inside the unit, it limited the pull of the cable so it would now spin the engine enough to start. it is not too difficult to to pop the top off the unit and check for tangles or knots

Troy-bilt tb539e head wont spin starts, and idles great but I cant get the head to spin


Since this is a split-boom machine, disassembly and inspection will be required. This unit has basically, 2 drive shafts and a clutch (up near the engine at the end of the engine's crankshaft). There is a drive shaft in the upper boom and one in the lower boom. Either the clutch or one of the drive shafts has malfunctioned.The string head SHOULD NOT spin with the engine idling. There is a centrifugal clutch that engages when the engine reaches a certain speed, in turn, it turns the upper drive shaft.
First, check the string head area for tangled string, wire, line or debris around the center shaft. Long grass can end up wrapped around that area and severely affect movement. Dissasemble the head and inspect. Make sure you can turn the string head by hand. If so, good/
To inpect lower drive shaft, just uncouple it from the upper one. Grasp the end of the driveshaft and turn it. Does it feel OK? Does the string head turn when you turn the drive? If not, you at least have a problem in the lower boom. If all is well, then proceed to inspect the upper boom.
Unscrew the main (uppper) boom from the front of the engine. If you can remove it out of the clutch drum and off then you will be able to inspect it. If the throttle cable and/or wires from the STOP switch are restricting you, you will need to remove the throttle cable from the engine's carburetor and try to get some slack in the switch wires. Those wires go to the ignition coil module under the engine cover.
When you have the upper boom off and can access the drive shaft, turn it to check it. Make sure the other end of it turns. If both drive shafts check out OK, then the clutch will need to be inspected. Post back if needed.

How do i put threed into the bobbin and keep it from not getting tangled?


Is it getting tangled while you're spooling the bobbin on the top right corner of the Singer 1507 machine? If this is the case, you have to pull the thread through the top tiny hole in the bobbin, and hold on to the thread end. Then click the bobbin to the right to lock it in place, power up your machine. Keep holding the thread as you begin spooling the bobbin. Let go of the thread once the bobbin starts to spin a few rounds and the thread should not get tangled.

On hoover steam carpet cleaner, the brushes do not rotate on low or high settings.


Follow these steps if the Brushes Fail to Spin
•If the brushes on your Hoover carpet cleaner fail to spin, there may be a problem---some sort of blockage---with the suction or with the belt that turns the brushes.
Turn the Hoover carpet cleaner over, and inspect the brush area. Debris, strings, or pet hair may be tangled in the rollers, keeping them from turning. Use a pair of scissors to cut away any obstructions in this area. Flip the Hoover carpet cleaner back over, and turn it on to see if cleaning the rollers has solved the problem.
To check the belt, turn the Hoover carpet cleaner over, and remove the bottom plate screw with a Phillips head screwdriver. Investigate the belt area to see if it is broken or has somehow slipped off. If it is broken, you can order a part from Hoover.com or from many of the other online parts stores.
When the belt arrives, simply slide it on in place of the broken belt, reattach the bottom plate and turn the Hoover carpet cleaner right-side up. Turn it on to test your solution.

The pull gets stuck halfway up. Feels like it's tangled inside where the cord retracts. Is that possible?


It's possible it could be tangled, but more than likely you just need to oil the drive shaft. Dirt and debris and grass can get caught up in there and keep the shaft from spinning and the blade from turning.

If you turn your mower over and apply some oil or WD-40 on the shaft where it disappears into the body of the mower, then spin the blade (carefully!) and shoot some more oil in, the blade should begin to turn easier, and that should take care of your problem.

Turbine head of my Dyson DC08 does not spin


This response is likely too late coming, however for others the problen appears to be the same as the fault with my turbine head which was that the turbine fan had become loose on its spindle. With no pressure on the brushes, friction would allow the fan to turn and drive the brushes via the belt. The faulty part is not available separately however I have repaired mine using araldite glue. Other things to check is for a worn belt. Cheers.
