Either you have an air pocket in the cleaner,or your backup valve is bad.The backup valve is the baseball sized unit on the hose going to the cleaner.

2040 john deere fuel guage doesnt work

The problem you explain usually has something to do with the sending unit float. Floats can absorb gas to the point where they just sink to the bottom of the tank. This can happen with both brass and plastic floats. The second thing is the sending unit you installed in your tank. Check to see if when you placed the unit in the tank , the float arm may have hung up on a baffle or some other obstruction in the tank. This would keep the sending unit from showing correctly. Good Luck Friend.

Where can I buy hi-float so that I can get party helium balloons to stay up much longer?

Try amazon. They have a 16 oz bottle for around $18.

The reviews for hi-float have been a bit mixed. Some people felt that their balloons stayed up for ages and others complained it didn't really work but it's not that expensive, so it's worth a try.

I have a Bosh Logic dishwasher SGS65L12GB/04 The other day it got to 1 min left and would not stop pumping out water and continued even with the door open. After 5 mins playing around it started working...

Hi Jonathan,

Welcome to FixYa.

Your float may have got stuck or it's possible that you have water leaking into the bottom of the washer. In the bottom of the wash compartment, next to the drain you will find a plastic dome/mushroom (the float). You might need to rotate the bottom spray arm to see it.

Turn the washer on so that the pump starts to run, open the door and push down on the float. This should stop the pump running. When you let go of the float, if it rises back up on its own, then it's almost certain that you have water in the bottom of the washer. If this is the case please post back for further assistance. If the float stays down, then it may have simply got stuck.

Please try this simple test and post back with the results.

Unit will start at full choke but will not stay running with choke off,will load up on full choke and stay running around 3/4 choke

Turn off the gas and take the bowl off the carburetor.Look for water bubbles in the gas that spills away. Water will float like little balls on gas. If so drain gas tank put in new gas with some HEET added. While you have the bowl off spray up and around the bottom of the now exposed carburetor.
Pay attention to spray up the small copper tube in the center of the carb.
Clean out bowl and put it back on. Turn on your gas. Look for leaks around the replaced bowl. Good luck.

Presser foot does not snap down - it rather floats

Hi, the presser foot bar needs cleaning and oiling. Open the cover over it if you can or just go at it from the bottom. It may be best to clean it with something with kerosene such as liquid Wrench from your local hardware store or a gun barrel cleaning solvent. Then a clear sewing machine oil and exercize it good until it starts snapping down again.

I have a 1999 yamaha royal star venture. I am continually having trouble with the engine running really sluggish (loading up)at slow speeds. It will load up and die in idle and either way it squirts gas...

What's most likely happened is some foreign debris (dirt, rust, fuel varnish, etc.) has gotten stuck on the float valve seat. The first thing you should try is draining the fuel from each float bowl. Turn the fuel petcock off, then loosen the drain screw on the bottom of each float bowl and let the gasoline drain out (catch it in a clean container, if you can, so that you can see what's come out).
Usually, this is enough to clean out whatever is hanging up the float valves. Also, locate the fuel strainer, usually located in a bowl on the bottom of the petcock, and clean it. Installing an in-line fuel filter might help, too.
If this fails to improve the situation, then your next step would be to remove the carburetors and take the float bowls off. Plan on replacing each float valve and, while you're in there, take each float and shake it next to your ear, listening for any signs of liquid inside. Replace any float that has taken on fluid.
Finally, check the float levels. Basically you want the float arms to be parallel with the float bowl gasket surface, just as the little metal 'tang' makes contact - but does not depress, the spring loaded plunger on the end of the float valve. Carefully bend the tang to adjust the float level.

Tecumseh 9hp craftsman snowblower will not stay running

First take the carb off of the engine and then remove the bowl, carefully take the float off paying special attention to the needle and how it is attached to the float. Next, lightly blow air into the fuel inlet while holding your finger over the spot where the needle goes in. Use a bread tie with the paper scraped off. Stick the wire through the pick up tube at the bottom of the carb. Find any other holes and probe those holes with the wire. Then thoroughly wash the entire carb with carb cleaner then blow the whole carb off. Then put the float and needle back in making sure that when putting the bowl back on that it seats tightly all the way around the rubber gasket. Also, just before you put the bowl on turn the carb upside down to see if the float is sitting level. If it is put the bowl on, If not then the spot where the needle sits on the float has to be bent one way or the other just a little until the float sits level. After the bowl is put in place, the nut that holds the bowl on the threaded area should have two possibly three holes plus the hole down the center, probe all holes with the wire. put everything back on the motor and try again. If it still won't run then you will need a carb kit.

Water leaking from my washer

hi sir Dishwashers are usually protected from overfilling by a float switch. This switch is located in the bottom of the unit. Here's how to check and replace it:Step 1: Open the door and remove the bottom dish rack. Check to see if the float valve is stuck. If it is, clean away food debris around the float. With a screwdriver handle, lightly tap the top of the float to free it.
thanks.................rate it

Water tank level indicator sinks to the bottom when water tank is full.


I think the float is up and down, try to take it out and turn it.

Look at the float in the other tank to see if it is same position, the rounded side should be down.

Let me know if you get it to work.

Best regards
