Purchase a curved Hemostat. This works wonders in tight situations because you can lock the gripper in place while you work the plug back in. Hemostats usually cost less than 5 bucks at fleamarkets and some Drug Stores.

Lights not working on Cloud B turtle. Have replaced batteries and switch is on. Depress on button on shell & still no lights. Granddaughter has had for 2 years and loves it. Is it fixable?


Bend the positive battery terminals out with a knife just a tad. They are not reaching the battery and making it so that it wont work. I did this and mine lit right up.

The power electric was run over by mower -unit has no electical power


You could bring it to a repair shop where they will probably install a new power cord. The now-shortened power cord can be fitted with a new plug, and used as before instead - for a fraction of the cost.

From what I can tell, the pressure washer is a 120 volt type. Purchase a replacement plug - called a "cord cap". The most common configuration is pictured below:

steve_con_4.jpg

A 15 amp / 125 volt male cord cap made by Leviton.

Your's is likely rated at 125V/ 15A (like the one above). This means there's 2 parallel blades and a ground pin - like most grounded plugs in your home. If unsure, bring the cut off section of the power cord to a hardware store to select an identical cord cap. You'll want to purchase the type of cord cap that has terminal screws - not the type without screws. The packaging of the cord cap will indicate how much of the cord jacket and individual wire insulation to remove. A little more or less won't make it impossible to do - but don't deviate too much from these dimensions for the best results. Once the cord has been stripped correctly - Disassemble the cord cap body from the outer shell by removing the screws on the front. Loosen or remove the 2 screws at the cord grip end and slip the shell over the end of the power cord.

Bring the cord cap body to the cord. The body will have 3 screws. One each silver (or light colored), bronze (or dark colored) and green. Loosen all the screws - do not completely remove them. Twist all the strands of each wire so that they are bundled together and there are no stray wires sticking out. Do this for each white, black and green wires. The black wire will connect to the bronze colored screw, the white wire to the silver screw and the green to the green colored screw. You can either insert the stripped wires into the small holes at the back of the terminal screws, or wrap them around the screw terminals themselves. The best way is to wire from the back - but if you choose to wrap around the screws, be sure all the small wires are under the screw head. Tighten the screws and tug the wires one at a time to make sure they are held firmly in place.

Once satisfied that the wires are connected correctly and tight - slide the outer shell towards the cord cap body. Align the screws with the holes in the outer shell. The parts will only fit together one way - so don't try to force it together. Tighten the screws in the front and then install / tighten the screws at the cord end to grip the cord. This clamp should be firm - but not to the point of crushing the cord. Test in a ground fault protected outlet and you're done!

I hope this helps.. please rate this reply - thanks!

Starter replacment need to remove starterRwoo0


Disconnect the battery, drain and remove the outer primary cover. From the left side of the bike, remove the battery cable from the starter and the small solenoid trigger wire. You may have to remove some or all of the exhaust system. Back on the right side of the bike, remove the two bolts just above the outer clutch shell that holds the starter in. They are two different lengths so remember which bolt goes where.

Good Luck

No power cannot turn on


Inside the unit behind the control pannel is a ceramic fuse looks like a car glass type fuse. To replace it you must remove the outer shell. First unplug the device,2nd
place on a flat work area,3rd remove the screws from the back of the unit,4th pull the outer shell back if it's stock a flathead screwdriver can be used to aid in removal,5th after removal look behinde the control pannel find the main power wires by following them from the back of the unit the fuse will be about 1" long and about as big around as a #2 pencil remove it carefully and replace it with a new ceramic fuse. The fuses are about $3.00
If you don't feel comfortable doing this yourself find a repair shop it will cost about $35 dollars
Hope this helps

Yes, try replacing the power button assembly first and the heatsink assembly and fan before shelling out big bucks on a Mobo (which is probably pulled from another LT).
