Those are both safety features built on every lawn tractor made for past 20 years. every summer they save countless feet, dogs, and grandchildren. lift the seat up, you will find a pressure switch which either opens or closes a circuit when somebody sits in it. take that switch out of the circuit, and you now have a mower which will allow you to put your toes under the running deck when you are not in the seat. you will find a similar switch attached to the reverse gear actuation mechanism. disable that and you are free to back over everything and anything with blades a'spinnin.

I don't know. But I can tell you on a 2010 Cub Cadet LTX1040 that the seat switches are normally closed. When you sit on the seat, the switches open. Unplugging the wire harness from the switch accomplishes the same thing. Again, I don't know.

Riding mower won't turn over


Key switch may not be operating the solenoid for the starter. Getting off the seat engages a safety switch that kills the engine go you won't have to go chasing it if it were to slip into gear while you're standing next to it.

My cutmaster 42 blows 3 times and won't work


Blows 3 times? Explain... Pops 3 times maybe and wont keep running? If this is what you mean, then it is either a timing issue (Flywheel key sheered), or blade is loose or bent. The blade helps to keep the mower running by balance and centrifical force. The blade IS on??? Do you have a link to the actual picture of the mower? Is this a walk behind or rider? Are the blades ran by belts or directly from the engine?

Want to know the carburettor L and H screw adjustment of Makita Power cutter DPC 8132


On both screws, turn them in just until they seat, not tight. Back them out one full turn. Start the motor and let it run until it gets up to temperature. If it won't start or stay running, turn the L screw out another 1/2 turn. With the motor idling, turn the L screw in just until you hear the motor tone change then back it out until it smoothes out and keep going until the motor tone changes or starte running rough. Turn it back in half way between these two points. With a blade on the saw, hold the throttle at about 1/2 to 3/4 full and adjust the H screw using the same method.

Garbage Disposal Ace 2000 model 47982.... The water won't drain out of it and the sink is backed up and hasn't gone down for a whole day now. It seems like the blades are turning. I've been...


Hi David,

Are the blades actually turning or is just the motor running?
First, turn off the power to the disposal at the circuit breaker. Do not put your hand in until you do this.

If you hear the motor running, but not the blades, then the blades are jammed. On most disposers you can put an allen wrench in an opening under the unit and move the blades. If the blades move freely, then your drain line is probably plugged.
If the motor runs, but the blades don't and they will move freely by hand, then the disposal needs repair.
If the blades are jammed with food, you can clear the jam with your hand and the allen wrench trick from underneath.
Once the disposer is freed up, run cold water down the drain for a few minutes to harden any grease build up inside. Then running the disposer should get rid of the hardened grease.
By the way, most disposers have a reset button on the bottom of the motor should your disposer jam and turn off or trip your breaker.

Orange peels, etc. will not harm your disposer. A good way to keep it clear is to put egg shells down it periodically. The shell action will scrape junk off the inside of the disposer.

You can also keep the disposer clean of grease buildup by pouring some baking soda in the disposer followed by a mix of hot water and vinegar.

Hope this helps. If it does, I'd appreciate a 4 thumbs up. Thanks,

Handie Andie

CHANGING BLADES


There is a small gun-metal colored bar (dark gray or black) at the very rear, just below the back of the blade. It pushes inward, in the direction of the blade. Push it firmly in and pull up on the teeth of the blade. It should pop upward. You can then remove the blade from the tongue that it sits upon. When you want to put it back, slide the blade back on the tongue, then, WITH THE MOTOR TURNED ON, push the blade down to its seated position. It will click into place.
Hope this helps you.

The whole blade set has come off and we have no manual to put back together


There is a small gun-metal colored bar at the very rear, just below the back of the blade when it is only the clipper. It pushes inward, in the direction of the blade. Push it firmly in and pull up on the teeth of the blade. It should pop upward. You can then remove the blade from the tongue that it sits upon. When you want to put it back, slide the blade back on the tongue, then, WITH THE MOTOR TURNED ON, push the blade down to its seated position. It will click into place.
If you have taken the blade off and the tongue has for some reason flipped back against the head, slide a screwdriver blade behind it and flip it back out so you can slide the blade back on it.

Good luck

I have a skill table saw model 3400 type 2. The


I would check to see that ID of the blade arbor matches the OD of the motor arbor, and you are not missing an adapter ring. Then I would get some acetone and a wire brush clean all surfaces where the blade seats. This is also good practice for Jacobs chucks on drills, that allow the drill bits to spin.
