Why does my 6.5 hp kohler lawn mower keep pulling oil into carb air filter


Its to stop the dust blocking the filter. The filter should be cleaned with petrol every 4 to 6 months to remove the dust & oil build up, cleaned in/with petrol and re-oiled. Its also good to clean the filter housing each time you clean the filter

Pull cord get tuck


If I understand properly, it sounds like the dogs on the recoil mechanism are worn. They are designed to engage with centrifugal force when you pull the cord. Make sure they are coming out when you pull the cord, you have to remove the housing to do this and make sure the dogs aren't worn. Also check the plate they engage onto on the flywheel and make sure it is tight and not worn/

The Korg wavestation keyboard resets itself 10 to 20 minutes after it has been powered on.


The following things come to mind: 1. Power cord is loose or marginal connection. 2. Static electrical discharge... can be so subtle you don't even feel it. 3. Internal failure...Maybe even the battery is failing.

Broken recoil start on tecumseh 6.5 hp


broken cord? remove bolts holding recoil housing.lift housing straight up,you may have to wiggle it a bit.turn housing over,remove any cord thats left,note how & where it connects to the spool.wind the spool [and consquently the spring under it]in the direction the cord would turn it as pulled when starting.hold spool tight.thread new cord through hole in housing.let spool turn back just enough to attach new cord.hold cord & housing,let spring "re-coil" cord slowly.check for smooth operation.replace housing.you may need to pull cord slightly to align 'square' shaft w/hole in spool.only after you are satisfied with the operation of it adjust length of cord by pushing excess cord through the handle,tie a new knot,then cut off excess,if any.

How do I repair a broken pull cord on a yardman push mower?


Easier than you might think. You need a screwdriver along with the sockets to remove the housing over the rewind assembly. Once you have the housing off and access to the assembly, remove the old cord by using it to wind the spring all the way out. Before you take the cord out slip a screwdriver in the slots to keep it from winding back up. If it does, it's not a concern. Just wind the spring back out by turning the rewind until it stops, then turn it back one turn until the holes line up for the cord. Stick the new cord through and tie it off, and let the spring pull the new cord in. If you need any help with it, hit me up.
