Question about Garden

Open Question

My first ts4000 torch lasted only a couple of months and quit lighting. It was left out one night in the rain and never lit on its own again. My wife for Christmas bought me a Craftsman adjustable flame self lighting torch. It only lasted a short time. I bought a new ts4000 and made sure it never got wet. We went camping and the new ts4000 was left out all night. It never lit by itself again. It did NOT get rained on camping. It was summer time. We had a ts4000 where i used to work that we used several time a week and it lasted for years. It was still working when i retired and is still likely working. When i light the ts4000 with a striker the flame is terrible and burns about 3/8 of an inch away from the end of the tip. Having 3 torch failers i sure dont want to buy yet another. How can i fix one of these.

SOURCE: Millivolt Generator burnout

I doubt that it's the pilot generators themselves that have been failing They normally last for years through any temperatures that a pilot flame can produce. More likely, the gas valve is bad and is trying to draw more current than the generator can supply. You could verify that by connecting one of the "failed" pilot generators to a known good gas valve.

If the problem is consistent you could try measuring the resistances of the two electromagnets in the gas valve. If you compare your readings to those for any other gas valve of similar type (same brand or not), they should be in the same ball park. 12 ohms and 10 ohms are in the same ball park; 10 and 2.3 are not. If the problem is not consistent but intermittent, see if by any chance it (a.) gets better when the valve is stone cold and worse after it's been drawing current for a few minutes, or (b.) gets worse when you mechanically disturb the screws and terminals on the valve or the wires attached to them.

That "750 mv" is just a number. In practice, 400 mv is a pretty respectable output. Even 250 mv is usually enough to operate the electromagnets, provided it doesn't drop much lower than that and nothing else goes wrong.

When the pilot flame is too small, the adjustment on the gas control is rarely the problem (or the solution). Much more often, the orifice (located in the inlet of the pilot burner) is clogged and needs to be reamed out. A #79 drill bit is about right for the job, if you have the patience and dexterity for it.

Good luck, mrtrick2 or anyone following in his footsteps.

SOURCE: husqvarnar model no 345 oil feed problem

First thing check the feed hole through which the oil is delivered to the bar itself for debris,secondly the worm gear turning the pump shafft need only be slightly damaged to hamper full oil flow , next take the oil filler cap off, (with the bar ,chain ,bar plates, and oiler removed ) look where the oil pick up is in the case half and remove it and check for clogging and / or tears in the rubber hose,
if the cap is equipped with a breathing filler cap check make sure the cap breathes this will also hamper maximun oil flow capacity,
I stand by this , as I have dealt with product for close to 2 decades and know it intimately

SOURCE: Husky 460 chains too long (or is the bar too short)

I'm am guessing the bar is not a stock bar or was miss matched at purchase by the dealer.
Have dealer look up factory bar to see what was original and either go with that or if you already have it. ask for a new rim sprocket with 1 extra tooth. If you don't have a replacable sprocket then best bet would be to have chains custom build which usually is the same price, if they treat you right.
Remember the new sprocket MUST be the same pitch and width of your chain and bar and they do make a large and small ID also.
Last resort If not wanting to trash a new bar or change out sprocket, run a couple chains when they get loose have your dealer take out a link.
Also a stihl 20" can be a 72 drive link chain where a husky could be a 70 or other.
Everything must be matched, hard nose bar is exception.

SOURCE: 2001 Accord EX - Front passenger side carpet is soaking wet

The drain on the a/c evaporator gets clogged, you have to raise the car on a lift, or get under the car, on the right side of the car under the fire wall you will see a black rubber hose ( about a 1/2 inch in size) pointing down, you will need to blow compressed air in the hose to clear the blockage.

Hi need help for Legend of Spyro - Eternal Night. Have got to the four temples and in each one there is a small spiderand just beyond it a locked door. Nothing seems to hurt the spider, but it seems that...

Back out in the Temple level again, walk forwards and some apes will appear.
After killing the pair of soldiers that attack first a couple of Death Hounds
will appear. These are fast moving enemies that will charge into you from afar,
so watch out for them. Another pair will arrive and then you'll see a short
scene of a large ape leader jumping down. His attacks, if they hit you, will
freeze you on the spot. Use fire breath to get out of it quickly, jiggling the
analogue stick is a bit slow. Once you've taken care of the Leader and the
soldiers and hounds that appear some bombs will helpfully smash some rocks for

Go over to the right and push the first statue into position at the end of its
track. Then off to the left and push the second statue. Jump on top of the
statue to reach the part above. Stand on the circle and the door will open.
Activate Dragon Time and wander into the building.

Dead ahead there's a torch to flame (to the right is an unlimited green gem
cluster if you run out of magic) and down the hall to the left you'll find
another couple, the last of which will open up the big door. Go through that
very same door. Avoiding the large hole in the floor, continue on through this
passageway to where some soldiers put out the torches. Kill them and their
leader and reignite the torches. The door will reopen to go through.

Go right and outside. Kill the spider, once it's down you need to tail strike
it (aka head bash or horn dive) so that it doesn't get up again. After killing
it turn to the left and jump up onto the ledge. Stand on the little platform in
the far corner and look up to the left. Jump from the first branch onto the
hexagonal pillar, then onto a tree branch and then across the path to Quill

Continue on along the path again and light the three torches ahead, jumping up
the steep platforms to reach the last one. The door will open and a Snail Rider
will enter. Flame the snail and then jump and air melee the rider. Make sure to
jump back after a few hits as the snail will pop out again, hitting you in the
process. Keep repeating this until they're dead. The door will open.

Go through the door and along to a fire torch which you'll need to light. The
other two are just ahead, one to the left and the other behind a vine wall
which you'll need to smash using your melee attacks. Once lit, in will charge a
couple of Death Hounds, take care of them before moving through the door. Go
down the corridor to the left carefully, the floor will shake and collapse.
Glide over the gap to take out the leader throwing ice bombs at you, as well as
the couple of soldiers he summons when you reach him. Now turn around and go
back over the second gap and look down into the first. You should be able to
see a green thing twirling around down there. This is the first of five Magic
Relics, Magic Relic [1/5]. Jump back out of the hole again and go through the
door you just opened.

Smash down the vines blocking your way and go right (left to some Blue Spirit
gems) and head outside. A Commander and a pair of Death Hounds will appear.
Kill them, watching out for the Commander's green blasts that he sends out
every now and again by hitting the floor. Then you need to light the three
torches. One to the right of the entrance, one to the left and the last you
need to use the platform the left one is on to reach.

The correct direction of travel once inside is to the left. Smash the vines and
jump over the gaps, watching out as the floor is all ready to collapse, even
just by gliding over. Once at the other end you'll reach a check point. Tail
Strike the vines and you'll fall through into a spider den. Watch out for their
spinning, and remember the easy way is to simply knock them up into the air
once and Tail Strike them when they're down or you'll keep on having the attack
them. You only have to hit them twice. Once the first two are dead another pair
will smash their way in, handily making an exit for you once you're done with

Follow the path out and smash the vines in your way, you'll reach some Toad
Weeds. Kill them and get onto the bridge just past, turn to the right and you
might just notice a red/orange spinning icon in the distance. Glide down to it
and collect Health Relic [1/5]. Use the roots on the wall to get back up, the
last one requiring a sudden change in direction. You'll get back up on the
right side of the bridge, keep going.

You'll encounter a spider lickety split, kill it and jump up the platforms
beyond and inside again. You'll reach a room with five hexagonal pillars of
varying size. Exactly positioned so that you can reach the very highest one and
collect Quill [04/40].

Continue on to the right, watch as the pillar topples over forming a bridge,
and immediately avoid the spider's attack. Cross that new bridge and kill that
spider (I say spider, it's only got six legs). Down the path behind it and up
to where a Snail Rider is sitting waiting. He'll summon a load of Toad Weeds to
help, ignore them whilst going straight for the big target.

The vine wall will smash by itself allowing you through. Jump over the broken
bridge and follow the leader dancing about on the other side upwards. At the
first jump before turning to jump up again continue along a bit and round the
corner you'll discover Quill [05/40]. Get back to jumping upwards. As you enter
the passageway watch out for the rolling barrel. It will explode if you bump
into it so just jump over, Dragon Time if you can't seem to time it right. Kill
the leader standing about halfway through the tunnel and then jump straight off
the end.

Glide down to the torches below, light the three of them and get back upwards
to continue along the path above. A couple of hounds and a leader will run in
to get killed. Once past them there's a Commander in the next room awaiting the
same fate. He'll summon three soldiers to help him though, and once the four of
them are dead another few waves of soldiers and leaders will smash their way

Once they're out of the way some spiders will appear. Jump up the platforms
once you've squished them and you're saved again. Use the branches on the left
to get over the thorn pit where a couple of spiders will promptly attack.
Avoiding the attacks of a third long distance spider you'll then want to glide
over some more thorns using branches, you might need Dragon Time in order to
avoid getting stopped.

There's another Snail Rider up ahead along with a crafty catapult and and ball
for firing in it hidden beneath some vines. Kill the Snail Rider in the usual
manner and melee the vines holding the ball in place. Drag it up the slope to
the catapult, stopping only to kill the Toad Weeds that appear, push it into
the cup and melee it to trigger. Use the platforms below to get up to where you
smashed and keep going.

Watching out for the ice bombs, glide down to the left, up the platform, light
the torch and glide over to where the leaders and commander are. Kill them,
light the torch and finally glide over to the last torch in order to open the
temple door, making sure that none of the apes have put out your torches.

It's a quick trot along a long thin path, jump over the spikes onto a tiny
platform in the middle of them and again to a branch sticking out, one more
platform and then to safety. Wander past the gems and into the darkness at the
end. Finally.

There's a few soldiers and a couple of leaders to kill before you get to the
boss fight.

Need help fixing

I had the same problem a couple years ago with mine. After letting it set for several months, I tried to plug it in again after moving into another house. All of a sudden, it started working again. That was 1 year ago, but just last did it again. I noticed that it does this if it is left on for an extended amount of time (my wife goes to bed at night and leaves it on). I cannot find anything on how to fix it, and no warranty assistance from RCA. I'm purchasing a Sony today, but will hold onto the RCA in case it decides to work again.
