Cant pull rope too much comephers tack plug out can pull rope

When this happens are you tipping the mower on its side? If you tip it or put it upside down the oil will get into the compression chamber. By taking the plug out you release that pressure. You should never tip the engine on its side but you can tip a little bit to clean underneath. Just a thought if this does it all the time have some one else try to pull it. Some people are not as strong as others.

Where is the float valve on an Aspes AL014 dishwasher?

It is located directly under the float in the tub. You have to remove the lower access panel to access the switch.

Don't throw it out. Remove the top plastic cover and it will be easy to access the starter/recoil unit. It should be easy to remove and take that off and diagnose the problem. Post back if need be.

I have error code 5800

The ink absorber is under the print engine and is a pad that covers the whole bottom of the machine. Cleaning or replacing doesn't help unless you have access to the service mode that Canon uses to reset the counter.

There are two possibilities:

1) Are you overfilling? There is a small indentation at the back of the reservoir where the water can escape if you fill too much. It's easy to spot.

2) If you're definitely not overfilling, only other possibility is the thin plastic/rubber tube inside the machine that takes the water from the bottom of the reservoir, past the heater plate, to the top of the filter where it's supposed to drip down thru the coffee. Sometimes this tube perishes from heat/age and starts to leak.

WARNING - there is a lot of electicity and circuitry down at the bottom part of the KM7000/KM7005. If you have a leaky wayer tube, best stop using the rig completely. You don't want some of that leaking water to touch the live parts inside the rig :)

LG washing machine keeps stopping and it says OE

The LG error code OE simply means “the pump is blocked”. Presumably the water isn’t being emptied properly. Check the exit hose, it may be clogged. This is if your filter is all clean. There should be air for passage in the standpipe behind. Your hose should not fit airtight into the standpipe and neither too deep into it. Snaking out your standpipe would be good too.

Maytag washer overfilling

Easy fix. Do this: Remove the rubber tube coming from the bottom of the tub up to the water level switch right there at the switch itself. Blow through it to remove the sediment in the bottom of the tub so that air pressure from tub to switch will be kosher. Put the hose back on the water level switch tight and pump out any water in the machine.

Mercedes SLK230 overfilling oil warning

5.6 liters here in the UK, could be a faulty sensor but try the oil first, easy enough to drain, jack up the rear passenger side so it gets all the oil out when draining.
