An engine running at reduced power could have different issues. Check for carbon build up in the muffler and on the spark arrestor screen at opening on muffler. Cleaning it fixes this issue. Yes, it could be a carb issue also. If you can, remove the carb and its covers and gaskets, noting where they go, and spray the carb liberally with aerosol carb cleaner. You may just need to adjust the H and L speed jets on the carburetor. There is no one solution to your problem, but it is most likely carbon build up or a malfunctioning carb. A gasket and diaghragm kit (under $10) can fix a lot of carb issues, so after cleaning and if you see no improvement, consider installing a new G & D kit.
Also, don't forget to check the condition of the spark plug. The way a plug looks tells a real story about how the engine is performing. With the plug removed, shine a flashlight into the engine down onto the piston and note how much carbon/crud/buildup there is. Removing this buildup improves engine efficiency and lost power also.

Why do Netflix movies keep stopping?


It could possibly be a slow internet connection speed. Netflix posted requirements. This is a good site to check your speed. http://www.speedtest.net/ Internet Connection Speed Recommendations Below are the Internet download speed recommendations per stream for playing movies and TV shows through Netflix.
  • 0.5 Megabits per second - Required broadband connection speed
  • 1.5 Megabits per second - Recommended broadband connection speed
  • 3.0 Megabits per second - Recommended for SD quality
  • 5.0 Megabits per second - Recommended for HD quality
  • 25 Megabits per second - Recommended for Ultra HD quality
HD Video Quality
Movies and TV shows we have available in high definition will play in 720p or better with a fast enough internet connection. To watch Netflix in HD, ensure you have a HD plan, then set your video quality setting to High in the Playback Settings for your account.
Netflix Bandwidth Usage
Higher quality video uses more bandwidth than lower-quality video. If your service provider applies a bandwidth or data cap to your Internet service, you canManage Bandwidth Usage by changing the video quality settings to Low or Medium to consume less data.

Sarter will not turn engine over


Two things cause this...a bad starter or weak battery...not sufficient Amps will not allow enough power to the starter to spin it fast enough to start the engine....a bad starter simply cannot use the power supplied it to turn the engine properly. Have some one do a load test on the battery..tests the battery simulating starting the engine. If ok it is the starter if not replace the battery..good luck.

Doesn't spin fast enough to remove water from tub. makes a steady noise that doesn't get louder or softer just stays steady


HI,
Check back of washe with a flashlight for a bent or clogged drain hose. Do not move washer to check it. When you move it , it will straighten out and you will never know if it was bent
Also while it is pumping , pick up end of drain hose at drain and observe the volume of water being pumped.
If no water then the Pump may need replaced

I have a L G and it does not spin dry the wash load How can this be fixed


Do you mean it doesn't spin at all...or it doesn't spin fast enough to dry the clothes?

If it will not spin at all you may have a loose belt or broken belt.
If it does not spin fast enough, you may have a loose belt or too latge a load.

I have a kenmore 80 series and its not spinning out the water.


does it drain out the water and spin but the clothes are still wet or is it not draining or spinning?set the timer to spin,open the lid and stick a screw driver into the lid switch hole and see if it spins and drains,also if it doesn't push down and let the switch up,or close the lid down and open it a little do this a few times,you should hear the switch make a clicking sound,if it doesn't click you have a bad lid switch.if the machine is draining and spinning but the clothes are wet,do the same thing with the lid switch and watch it spin with the lid open,is it spinning fast,if not you have a bad transmission and it's not spinning fast enough to remove the water out of the clothes or you could have a kink in the drain hose or something in the pump and it's not draining all the way.let me know what you find and send the model number off of the washer,the number should start with like 110.

Whirlpool not spinning fast enough. Not


We had same problem which got worse. I had to take the tub out as it wasn't engaging on spin. I feel a washer
was left out at factory as it wouldn't tighten down.
After a few attempts I finally found a washer that was
right ( elec dept ). You basically take the whole thing apart.
It works now but we bought extra washers

The machine goes crazy when it's on the extended spin (fast spin). If I set it to "gentle spin, would it disengage the fast spin? Whirlpool didn't know the answer!


Even with a good level machine these are very heavy units containing 3 concrete weights. The floor is a direct contributor to vibration and yes it;s worse on the Ex spin with a higher spin speed. If it's on a wood floor even in a new home that can cause this issue. One way to make sure the machine is ok is to put it on a concrete floor, level it and hit the high speed spin with a wet load. Not a easy thing to do but one way to confirm it.

Even a normal spin is enough spin speed to extract enough water. Stick with that!
