Hi,
That would be interanl inside the refrigerant lines at the air handler, usually by the exspansion device...
You would need to dump the chagre to get to that...

The unit will need to be pumped down and the refrigerant reclaimed by a professional to get to that...

Where do the check balls get placed in the valve body of transmission?

Clutch Slipping on Vulcan 1500


Before you tear your engine apart and start changing plates and putting in heavy duty springs, try this simple little fix that worked for me.
Open the Clutch master cylinder and look in the bottom and you will see (2) holes. One of the holes will look like it has a tiny ball valve in it. Take a small stiff piece of wire (bread tie with plastic removed) and stick it in this ball valve to clear any debris. What happens is that the fluid cannot return from the clutch to the cylinder and keeps some pressure in the line thus the slipping clutch. If that valve is clogged, you can put as many new clutches or heavy duty springs as you want and the clutch will still slip. Take it from someone who just changed all the parts then still had to flush the hydraulic cylinder, clean that hole out, add new DOT 4 fluid, bleed clutch and now it works GREAT!

1is there a plastic ball inside the Kenmore he2 plus front loader washer drain pump hose


I would not be so quick to judge it as a clog. Check valves often take the shape of a ball. In transmission and carburetors they are steel. Given that the he2 drum is lower then the drain connection in the wall it makes perfect sense for a check valve in the drain hose. If you can not see a way for it to get in there and it appears large enough to stop water form flowing back into the machine I am betting it is a check valve. Look carefully at how it might fit on the machine side of the line, if I am right, it should be able to block the hole. When water is moved toward the house drain, there should be no way for it to block the water. There is also a very good chance it is a solid ball. Look at it very carefully before deciding to remove it.

What else should i try


Sounds like the check valve in the primer base is stuck/clogged/damaged, assuming the fuel lines and fuel filter are intact and not clogged, It will have to be replaced.

I was able to use soap all last season, this year, i cannot get it to come thru, i know all about the low pressure deal, it seems to be clogged/ is there any way to specifically clean it where it enters...


Soap injectors are easily clogged or will not work because of design (air leaks will prevent chem from entering if chemical has to be drawn uphill) . They work with siphon action and will only work with very little pressure at the tip but good volume. If your siphon valve has the ball in place, however is missing the fine spring that holds the ball against seat (fine spring holds ball aginst intake fitting), the soap will not be sucked into stream. If ball and spring are in place, try elevating the soap container higher than the opening of the port (gravity feed may help to feed soap into system) . May be better to use an aftermarket downstream injector valve sold on ebay or many outlets. Cost about $20 but work better and are adjustable to save on soap. Search ebay for "Chemical Injector For Pressure Washers" or google "Pressure Washer Downstream Chemical Injectors" Various prices but lower price units work better than factory. Good luck

I HAVE A MODEL sx55nxpcd-7443 ailess sprayer that has not been used in 4yesrs I tried to use it today I put a bucket of water for the pick up tube but nothing happens Ihave also missed placed my maunel...

When you say nothing happened.
If the machine doesn't run at all, check the cord and plug.
If the machine doesn't pick up paint, read the following:

There are 2 steel balls inside the sprayer.
The first one is in the pipe at the first joint > this ball keeps prime in the pump head.
The second ball is 5" higher, and it is opened and closed by the prime valve
These balls can rust and then the sprayer needs to be replaced
Always store sprayer filled with kerosene

The prime valve goes bad too
And the intake can be clogged with wasp nest or paint.

Let's say your prime valve is okay, and the pipe is not clogged.
Tap the pipe where the ball is located while the machine is running.
See if you can loosen the ball.
If you can't loosen it, take the pipe apart, but be careful because the ball has to fit perfectly to hold the high pressure of a paint sprayer.

If you can get the machine to prime, then tap the next ball to see if machine will fill the hose.

Pump won't pick up cleaning fluid thru plastic suction tube.. Troy Built with 5 hp engine


The suction tube connects to a small brass piece that has a ball valve. When pump pushes water down hose, it creates suction on the ball valve. The ball valve has to be the right size. Too large, no suction, too small, no suction. The entire world of electronics is based on similar principle.

When the ball valve wears out, or gets clogged, the pump pressure is not able to lift fluid. Try cleaning valve, but my bet is you need a new part with the ball valve.

Power Washer has no pressure, any ideas


1. If you have an inlet chemical injection valve make sure that the hose is intact and that the valve is closed.
2. Purge all air from the line by holding the nozzle actuation lever open until all air has been purged. When you connect the water supply hose turn it on before connecting the high pressure hose and let the unit self purge to the pump outlet high pressure hose fitting. Then connect the high pressure hose.
3. You could have a stuck spring and ball inside the high pressure head of the pump. You can tip the unit on its' side and add a substantial amount of WD-40 to the water supply hose fitting in an attempt to free the springs and balls.
4. Try BRIEFLY running the unit without the hose connected to see if there is high pressure water ejected from the high pressure fitting.
5. Inlet water screen at hose connection is clogged (hose screen and rubber) Check screen for debris.
6. The water strainer is clogged. (Almost looks like an LPG regulator just after but in line of the supply hose connection to the pump)

Order of troubleshooting

1, 2, 5, 6, 4, then 3.

Thanks for using FixYa!

Our dyson ball vacuum keeps blowing air out of a valve at the top of the collection canister causing it to lose sucction. why?


that unit redirects the suction to that valve to protect the motor. check both of your filters and also check for a clog. make sure to clean the inside of the canister as thouroughly as possible.
