This is a relatively easy SELF correction process. Mind you a pool is FRESH water.

1. Drain all gas by remove the hose that connects to carb and completly drain the gas tank. (If there is an in line fuel filter or glass debris bowl, change filter / empty bowl.
2. Remove float bowl nut and bowl and purge water. Spray carb with carb cleaner while float bowl is removed. Paying particular attention to the float bowl nut thread area (throat)
3. Drain Oil. AFTER step 5.
4. Pressure Pump oil should be fine as it is not vented. (depending on pump installed but none of them are vented.
5. Remove spark plug and put about 1 ounce gas directly into the cylinder IGN OFF! Pull recoil and let gas exit spark plug hole. Reinstall a NEW spark plug BPR5ES or similar
6. Service engine oil
7. Fan dry the unit over night. Simple floor fan will do. Leave the gas cap OFF / float bowl open overnight during Fan Air dry.
8. Next morning service gas tank
9. Select fuel on and let a small amout of gas leak before installing the float bowl and nut making sure the float bowl gsket is installed against the top of the float bowl.

Final testing time... Ign. on.. Test spark first. Spark check good. FUEL ON. Start.

Just make sure to change oil again in 10 hours. Water in oil will cause the oil to appear milky.

You can do this. Worst case the electronic ignition module fails. (They are cheap... !) Most of the time the coil will not need to be changed.

That is water de-contamination 101 and you just completed the course. Give it your best shot. It beats buying a new one and yes it is worth repairing.

Thanks for choosing FixYa.

I had a 400000 btu teledyne pool heater for 19 years and finally gave out. They don't manufacture that heater anymore. Any ideas for something that was going to last just as long as a teleydine.


You may be able to have that same one repaired... If it went for that long it may be worth having it fixed! Even a bad burner or heat exchanger is fixable (if not replaceable)

Water is dripping down inside the heater on the left side,pool co. says I need to buy a new heater. Any thoughts?


The heat exchanger is the problem and it is expensive to fix. If the leak has gone on long enough to damage other parts or the heater is getting older than 8-10 years then it is likely better to replace it.

If the unit is newer and in decent shape then fixing it is an option but total for parts and labor is nearly half the cost of a new unit so consider carefully if the repair is really worth it.

Inner tub broke away from outer tub casing


Time for the dump. Probably need a new tub lock nut but there may be more damage to the transmission or tub seal which will leak water and it may not be worth the $100 service call for a Tech to tell you you need a new washer. Good time to buy appliances right now, try to get free installation!

Lighting strike. Fixable? Worth fixing?


The cost to fix it is too high. And normally it affects almost all components.
Take it to an expert near you and analyze the situation if you want, but if it was me I would thow that away and buy a new one.

Camera dropped, lens won't retract or expand


You can buy a new A590 for under $110 these days, so the professional repair option may be out. Lens errors are fairly common. Usually it's sand or grit interfering with the lens extension mechanism. Or the camera's been dropped with the lens extended. Or the camera has been powered on, but the lens had been blocked preventing its extension. Or the battery ran down with the lens extended ...

Here's some things that you can do to try to correct it. They only seem to work for less than 50% of the lens errors, but if the camera is out of warranty, they're worth a try:

ViewSonic VA721 monitor


this is only an educated guess based on my years of computer and electrinics experiance. I believe the problem is the AC inverter that supplies current to the monitors back light,it powers up and fails. the monitor is working but without the back light you get a blank screen.The problem is fixable, but the delema is that for a technician to troubleshoot and repair the problem may cost as much as replacing the monitor since the prices have dropped so much in the last few years.
