Thank you for posting your question here on Fixya.com.

It could be the pump is bound up but it is more likely the motor is failing. It may be a small part such as the capacitor or the starting switch, but could also be more severe such as the winding itself. You will also want to examine the shaft where it passes thru the pump and motor and look for signs of rust from a pump seal leak.

If you are not familiar with testing these parts your best bet would be a local electric motor repair shop to see if the motor can be repaired or if it would need to be replaced. They should also be able to ensure there is no pump damage.

What all safety switches are on a 1996 ford thunderbird


I think the only safety switch in the starting circuit (which just engages the starter motor to crank the engine over) would be the neutral safety switch. But if you have the anti-theft system, that will inhibit starting while honking the horn and flashing the headlights, too.
There is an inertia switch in the wiring to the fuel pump which could trip with a large bump, but it would only shut off the fuel pump, and not affect the starting circuit.

The neutral safety switch wiring would be found in the wiring to the Transmission Range sensor, which also needs checking.

Car won't engage starter


At the starter relay, you have two red or purple wires, one goes to the starter and the other comes from a 30amp fuseable link. Is that fuseable link circuit hot ?
From the key switch, power goes thru the alarm relay, then the clutch safety switch or automatic selector switch, then to the starter relay. The fourth wire on the starter relay is a ground.
You should be able to put power to the starter relay on the white or yellow wire coming from the safety switch to make the relay engage.
My guess is something wrong with the alarm system.

I installed a new GX 390 Honda engine in a Toro 413 TX machine. Motor starts, idles and full throttle fine, but when hydraulics,i.e. drive is engaged, motor dies.


you have a dingo, ugh
I would suspect a bad pump or wheel motor if the rpms are set correctly and no safety switches are causing it to die...

Did not press the RIO when going in reverse with the blades engaged. The motor stopped for safety reasons. Now I cannot get the mower started. Any ideas?


What model machine, and are blades engaged by flicking a switch or by actuating a lever.
BUT .... did you place machine in neutral, apply parking brake and disengage blade PTO before trying to re-start ?? Machine's safety system needs to be satisfied that the machine is safe to re-start.

X520 jd mower trouble


Sounds like a problem with the governor. Start it up. Don't engage the blades. Drive to a hill. Idle all the way down. Try driving up the hill. The motor should pick up when it slows while pulling up the hill. If it doesn't, the governor isn't working right.

Breaker trips when you try to start compressor motor spins a little before tripping breaker


Just fixed my compressor. It would start ok when the tank was empty but trip the breaker if it tried to start with pressure. Searched and read about weak caps, or problem with check valve or pressure switch leaving pressure in the pump head, etc. Turned out that the black plastic box which holds the 2 start up caps and is attached to the end of the motor with 2 screws had cracked on the bottom. The black box had tilted out enough that the start up caps switch was not engaging. Pushed on the lower part of the box and it started perfectly. Fixed it for the cost of some 2 part epoxy. Maybe not your fail, but definitely worth checking out first.

When trying to start the dishwasher you can hear the water come in and the you should here it all engage. All you ear is a hum of an electrical motor. Then it shuts itself down. It tries again after a few...


The motor or the pump could be jammed. If it is then the motor will trip its overheat safety. When it cools down it tries to run and overheats again. See if there is anything stuck in the pump.

Wont start


If it's not even beginning to attempt to engage the engine, it sounds like one of the safety switches on the unit may have malfunctioned. Those dead man switches will completely shut down the unit and not even allow it to start. Check to make sure nothing is engaged that could have tripped on of these.
