What could I damage on my boat fuel line? Primer bulb, any filter ... ?


There could be several reasons. I'd first look at stuck floats in the carbs. I believe there's 3 carbs and if all spark plugs are wet all floats are sticking.

But assuming it didn't overheat, and the spark plugs are wet with fuel (as opposed to water) - sometimes a defective coil will short out only when it gets warm (most time they short all the time). They can be tested.

A very good mechanic once told me there are only four things to concentrate on: Suck, Squish, Bang, and Blow. In other words, Fuel delivery, Compression, ignition system/spark, and proper exhaust. My experience has been that I've never had to worry about Blow (knock on wood) with an outboard. Others have however.

Additional advice: The number 1 cause of outboard problems is gas. Todays fuels are great for fuel injected cars but break down sooner than old gas mixtures. Always put a fuel stabilizer in you tank. It's cheap and only takes a few ounces to protect from hundreds of dollars worth of carb work - and avoid sticky floats.

Hesco generator problems


Check the Spark plugs. Pull them out and see what they look like. Replace the ones that looks bad. Use a Spark Plug Gap Finder and make sure it is set to the specs of the generator.

Could be the Fuel itself. When was the last time you ran it out of gas and refill it? If the spark plugs are fine Empty the tank and place some fresh fuel. Clean or replace the Air filter. Do the general maintenance.

Its not The mechanics fault all the time, you may fix something then something else goes wrong thats mechanics 101. I've had this problem before I replaced my ignition coil and my fuel pump, fixed it right up in my 96 f150. Give it a try its a whole lot cheaper than most options.

I HAVN'T USED MY 5000 WATT GENERAC GENERATOR FOR AT LEAST TWO YEARS AND NOW IT WON'T START WHAT SHOULD I DO?


When you stored it, did you drain the fuel out of it or run it "dry"? If not then the gas has most likely turned to varnish and needs to be cleaned out. There is no real easy way to clean the junk out of the carb without taking it apart. You MIGHT get lucky if you put fresh gas in the tank and then use some starting fluid SPARINGLY and see if the new fuel might dissolve the residue.

The motor in the power head ran at a higher pitch for a for 8 to 10 seconds then stopped. If I push the reset button the powerhead may or may not start or it may start and run for a few seconds. The brush...


Did you check the belt? A broken belt results in lower strain on the motor, causing it to run faster resulting in the faster speed and higher pitch. This could result in overheating, which will cause the motor to shut off.
If this isn't the problem you'll need to take it to the nearest Aerus Electrolux store for trouble-shooting and repair.

I am in ecuador and have had a local "plumber" install a lpg tankless water heater for me. After more difficulty than there should have been it's up on the wall with the water and gas lines attached but it...


The system is ignited by turning on a hot water faucet causing water to flow through the unit activating the igniter.You could disconnect the gas line at the unit turn the valve on and off real quick and smell for gas.If there is air in the line you may have to let it run or purge the line just long enough to make sure gas and not air is comming out.You might want to have utility company do this if you have any worries .I would make sure it is set up for lpg and not natural gas. And then and this is quite often the problem the gas line feeding the unit should be at least 3/4 inch pipe and fairly close to the main supply and in no instance the last fixture in system unless the pipe sizing is adequate for the amount of gas the unit needs to run.If sizing is the problem sometimes rather than running new pipes your utility company might be able to adjust the pressure comming out of the tank to make up for it. Hope this helps good luck

I have a McCulloch Model PM 310 , Gas Chainsaw. How would the spark plug be accessed?....Rich


Storing a chain saw for longer than 30 days requires storage maintenance. Unless the storage instructions are followed, fuel remaining in the carburetor will evaporate, leaving gum-like deposits. This could lead to difficult starting and result in costly repairs. Never store a chain saw for longer than 30 days without performing the following procedures:
Remove the fuel tank cap slowly to release any pressure in tank. Carefullydrain the fuel tank.Start the engine and let it run until the unit stops to remove fuel from carburetor. Allow the engine to cool (approximately 5 minutes).
Using a spark plug wrench, remove the spark plug.
Pour 1 teaspoon of clean 2-cycle oil into the combustion chamber. Pull starter rope slowly several times to coat internal components. Replace spark plug.
Store the unit in a dry place and away from possible sources of ignition such as a furnace, gas hot water heater, gas dryer,etc. When removing the unit from storage, be sure to perform the following procedures:Remove spark plug. Pull starter rope briskly to clear excess oil from combustion chamber.Clean and gap spark plug or install a new spark plug with proper gap.Prepare unit for operation.Fill fuel tank with proper fuel/oil mixture.

This will help. Thanks, please keep updated. please do rate the solution positively .thank you for using fixya

Just stops and starts while vacuuming - won't keep running


Probably a loose wire or other electrical connection .Possibly a broken wire in the cord,if it flexes excessively in one spot or feels too warm the cord could be the trouble.
