Question about Dewalt DG6000 Heavy Duty 6000 Watt Gas Generator

1 Answer

I have a Dewalt water blaster 3300 psi which I purchase at Home Depot on Guam. I have used the unit only 10 times approx during the course of the year since it was purchased. Last month I did some cleaning and it worked property. Then yesterday I tried to start it and could not even pull start the engine. I could not even pull the cord and it was as if the motor was frozen. The fuel started to spill out of the air filter/ carb area. Can you advise what is going on with my machine. Thanks Dennis

If the gas poured-out of the carb then the cylinder filled with gas when you pull start it the full cylinder will act as if frozen when the valves are closed you can not compress the liquid remove the spark plug and try to turn engine slowly make sure the kill switch is set to OFF so no spark can ignite the gas turn the engine till no more gas comes out then you will need to replace the engine oil to new the carb will need to be dissembled and checked what causes this is a stuck float a brass float can get a pinhole in it and sink then a free flow of gas will enter the cylinder.it it called hydraulicking you can bend valves and con rods trying to turn it hard with no place for the fuel to go.
when you do this squirt some oil in the cylinder to lube the rings and not score the walls reassemble and run the engine after these steps followed. have the water hooked up and it free flowing not to run under a load until your satisfied with the results a carb kit is around $20.00 bucks and a float $6.00 hope this helps

Is there a way I can change the settings of Whirlpool Washer Model # CAE2743BQ, because this Machine has a very low level of water. Kindly teach us how to make the water plenty in the washer..


If you do not have owner's manual, try manualslib.com Double check the method for setting water level (load size). There may be an "energy conservation or water conservation" mode.
I would also take the purchase receipt to Home Depot and ask for help. If it is all machines, there may be a factory defect. Hopefully, you are within the factory warranty time.

John Deere will replace the cap for free; they acknowledge the vendor who supplied Briggs & Stratton gas caps provided faulty caps. Call 1-888-228-3068 then 1 (English), 2, 1 and a technician will ask you for model number and Serial Number (which they need to replace the cap). Don't drill a hole in your cap: debris will find a way into the gas tank and end up possibly fouling the engine. Bob from NJ

check to see how hot the water can be, ti should be on the unit or in your book. also your amps should be no less than 15amp, long core can over heat the motor. if your unit can't handle hot water it will melt the valves

Setting country on tomtom one


This TomTom comes loaded with 2 maps....Guam and the US with Canada. I too got stuck in Guam and it is not obvious how to get out of it. But here it is.
Go to Main Menu, then Change Preferences
Hit forward arrow twice
Go to Manage Maps
Hit forward arrow once and choose Switch Map
It should show you Guam and the US and Canada
Tap US and Canada and it should take you out of Guam!!
Mine did and I am now going to delete the Guam map.
