Yamaha yfz 450r atv 2012 model start but don't have power to ride.


Hey Brighette
Its time to check a few things.. First - remove the air filter and see if it runs ok then... if not... have the carburetor professionally cleaned and set... does it run ok now? .. have you installed a new spark plug? .. do that.. if it is still not running ok.. time to check the compression using a compression gauge that screws into the spark plug hole...

Innova Compression Tester

Your engine should pump at LEAST 120PSI. Once you have screwed the gauge in and lightly seated the o-ring.. turn the engine over for at least 5-8 seconds with the throttle WIDE OPEN... 120psi. minimum... if you are not getting very very close to this.... its time to find out why??... it might be that the valves are too tight... but find out why?... this is probably the reason it won't run..

Charged batrie pet in checked spark plug plenty spark .turn key on not firing spary some east start still nothin


Check 3 things

Spark
Compression
Fuel


I always start with fuel because that will eliminate spark and compression right off the bat...


Spray some carburetor cleaner into the plug hole then reinstall the plug ..
If the unit starts up and runs for a few seconds, you have a carburetor issue

Hi, I have subzero side by side refrigetor. Building up on back panel on refrigetor side . I defrost it clean and in week again ice building up ? Ho to resolve ? Thanks


check aall your seals on your doors and make sure they are sealing tight. Your compressor is working extra hard and freezing up. Also check the thermostat and make sure its not turned down to low, that will also cause compressor to run hard

Turns over but wont start


Look for the basics, fuel,compression and spark,my first thought would be fuel.While someone is turning it over some one else crawl under and pound on gas tank a few times this may get the fuel pump running if it doesn't run,if you hear it run a few second when you first turn the key on that means it is capable of running but not necessarily pumping,check at the fuel rail if it has a gauge fitting to see if fuel is there, there will be a cap to take off if there is press with a small screw driver (like a tire valve) if gas squirts out then you have some kind of pressure.

The timing circuit may be defective and the circuit board needs replacing. Have an authorized serviceman do a continuity test on the board and have it rest to factory specs.

Car wont turn on smells like gas


It should not smell like gas unless the engine is REALLY flooded. But todays computer controlled cars won't allow that. I think you have a fuel leak somewhere.

My laptop shut off when i picked it up. when i turn it on the fan runs for a few seconds then nothing.


overheating emergency power down.

use compressed air to clean dust and such from the air / fan inlet, remove battery pack, try again, if still the problem, disassemble, clean with compressed air all the parts, reassemble.
if still the prob, u will have to exchange the fan...

good luck

The deforst timer didn't work and got ice


Does the timer move? If you can, try rotating the timer to the defrost postion when the frigorator turns off and see if the defrost emement starts to heat up. If it doesn't then you could have a bad thermostate. easy to replace.

Refrigetor doesn't freezer


small appliances use CLOSED systems because they use r-12 or 134a freon (you have to be licensed to buy and dispose of it) - once charged - they are sealed shut. You will have to make your own charging port with a tap (similar to a refrigerator water line tap. They are available at most A/C supply shops... however the taps are inconsequential if you do not have a license to purchase the refrigerant.
