I have a homelite chainsaw that when I pull the rope to start about half the time it appears to hang, my shoulder and arm are killing me.

Remove plug before trying to start pull a few times with plug out you may have quite a bit of fuel exhaust from spark hole then reinstall plug and try starting. Sometimes fuel runs into head above the piston (especially in hot weather) causing the piston trying to combust a liquid. If you leave fuel cap loose in hot weather it will help prevent this.

Trying to hook up aftermarket stereo with no factory harness. How can I go about wiring my new stereo wires or my replacement harness (with module) to my car's already existing loose stereo wiring??

Hi Daniel

You need to test & label all the loose wires.

Use a multimeter in Ohms mode to place a tickle of electricity to each speaker wire. you should hear each speaker crackle. (Multimeters only use a 9v battery internally)
Label each pair of wires for speakers.
Their color coding may help. Keep the negative & positive wires to the speakers correct so that the speakers all travel in a forward motion together or you will have distortion from one speaker that is out of phase with the others.
You will also have a permanent +12v line and a Ignition Key +12 volt line.
One keeps the station memory etc when the ignition key is off.

Just isn't functioning correctly all together. It will not eject CDs, flip screen, attention, until I reset it a few times, even then only works temporarily!

Pull battery cable off and then go behind the radio and add 1 more wire to the green ground wire to ground in two spots instead of one. JVC is known for bad grounds and no continuity in ground wire. Put on cable on battery. And reset radio and you should being up and rocking. If not hit me back and I will give you more tech support.

Yes you can, just make sure you put the wiring in the correct order, the best way to do this is change one wire at a time.

When welding, the wire drive motor seems to bind up after 3 or 4 revolutions on the sporcket. I took the end off of the gun and pressed the trigger and the wire fed easily for a few secs and just stopped....

Could be the drive motor is going out, or overheating. Or the spool is too tight. If you can get to the motor wiring check the AC with a clamp-on meter to see how much it's pulling. If you're lucky the label on the motor will tell you what the normal draw is.. that small a motor it should be pretty low. If you hold down the trigger even after the wire stops, does the motor start to get hot? Can you turn the spool (lightly) by hand to see if that's hung up and hanging the motor?

Good luck!

Hunter Fan Mod 21617-001, wire colors Black with white stripe/ Pink/Yellow/Red/Gray/Black/White. This has a floresent light, no chains or switches. The Pink serves the light. Note the wires are not labeled...

Red and white are twisted together,or however you combine wires.I use plastic wirenuts.Always twist clockwise as the wirenuts are most effective that way and the wires will stay together better.Black/white,yellow,and gray are the speeds yes,and the fan wires go to the receiver wires.It sounds like you do not have the receiver?If it isn't already built in,it should be small enough to fit within the smallest part of the fan base.The remote is the transmitter.Here is a link to show you the wiring.Red&white twist together for house power.Black for house ground.It also shows a THIN WHITE wire for the antenna.It is not necessary to hang it outside of the casing.You should make it spread out around the inside in a full circle,that should be fine.Just not wrapped tightly around the motor,loosely is better.It does show the antenna wire hanging out in the diagram.You can do that also,just make sure it isn't hit by the fan,and it will not cause a fire if pinched by the plate.If you do have all the wires connected,it shows that the dip switches on the receiver must match.Make sure the remote has the battery removed when changing these.When they are correct,there is no way to tell what the fan is set to and it could start moving.The dip switches are equivelant to radio stations.If you want 101.9FM,but it is set to 101.1FM,it won't come in.When the switches match,you are tuned in and hear 101.9FM.If you need more help,just comment here and I will get an autolink to your post and reply ASAP.Good luck,Greg The link looks universal for Hunter fans,all wired the same.

In order to get my reddy heater to fire I have rock the on off swith several times or the wires on the switch could I havea bad switch

Based off of what your telling me, you could have a bad switch, but you also said you had to shake the wires so I would check all your wire connections to the switch and wherever else they connect to make sure you don't have a loose connection. If all the wiring checks out you can replace the switch (Note:If your reddy heater has a plug unplug it, then connect the two wires that went to the switch together. Then plug in the heater and see if it runs, this will tell you if it is the switch).

Presario 6000 desktop wont power up after transporting. Opened cover & I have loose wires that may be the problem. The loose wires are labeled p9 &p7.

Unfortunately, I do not know P9 and P7. Can you tell me if they are multiple colored wires going into a header/connector? If they are single wires or thin wires you may be able to look at your header of wires which connect the pwr button, rst switch, power led, speaker ( 4 pin thin connector ) if p9 and p7 came off here they could be your power switch.

I wired a trailer plug on 2001 silverado. All lights worked when hanging loose, taped seperate than all together. Now I only have right turn, brake, tail lights. I disconnected all wires from plug, but...

Is the problem with the truck left turn when not connected to the trailer? If that's the case, check the bulbs front and rear to see if one burned out. Also check your fuses, some vehicles have a separate fuse for each side. If it's when the trailer is hooked up to the truck, then If all lights worked hanging loose, then left stopped after taping them all together, it has to just be a bad connection. Check all connections for the left lights, and after determining the connections are good, use 'shrink wrap' on them. That's the type that you heat up, and it shrinks, and seals the connections, available at any auto parts store.
