SOURCE: ice maker failure

1) Check the filler tube which allows water to enter the dispenser through the back wall of the freezer. This tube may be frozen inside. You can pull the tube out gently and clear it.

2) The inlet valve may be faulty/blocked. Where the water connects to the water valves behind the fridge, try to swap the plugs around from the one valve to the other. They should be colour coded. Then try dispensing water. If water runs into the ice-maker then the ice maker valve is faulty/blocked.

SOURCE: Fridge won't dispense ice through door.

First take the hopper out and let it de-ice completely making sure that it is dry before re-installing it. Make sure that the auger moves when re installed with no ice in it.

SOURCE: my grass scorpion willn't start,I have changed

To make sure that you have the right plug,you need to specify the make and model number of your trimmer.The first thing you need to do is check and make sure you have spark to the plug.
Set the trimmer down.Take out the spark plug.Put the plug into the plug boot and set it on top of the motor.Make sure the switch is on,and pull the recoil a couple of times.Look at the end of the plug to see if you have spark,and make sure it is blue.
If you have spark,you might have a problem with your carburetor settings.

If raw fuel comes out of the muffler then you have an extreme flooding condition. There are no Model Numbers to tell me which type of saw we are working on but this works most of the time.

Try this: Remove the spark plug and BE CERTAIN the stop-switch is in the OFF position. Take the saw outside and bring a fire extinguisher with you! Hold the saw by the rear handle and let the muffler hang down to the lowest point possible. SLOWLY begin to pull the starter rope and observe the fuel being pumped out of the muffler. Gradually increase the speed of the rope pull and get as much fuel out as possible. When satisfied that it's dry, it isnt. Use compressed air to LIGHTLY blow into the spark plug hole and continue to pull the rope. (Might need 50 or more pulls!) Blow the spark plug dry and reinstall it.
Turn the switch ON, leave the choke OFF, and hold the trigger wide open. Start the saw and allow it to run at full throttle until it clears out all unburnt fuel and has good throttle response. If you need further assistance reply to this post with the make and model of the saw and I will be happy to help.

Hope this is helpful,

How to start tanaka chain saw tcs33eb/16

take the plug wire off the plug, remove the plug, put the plug wire back on the plug and earth the plug somewhere on the metal body, pull the starter and see if there is a spark between the plug contacts, make sure the power is on when you try this.
I there is spark, replace the plug etc and check the fuel line as they do become brittle due to the heat from the motor over time and they will crack allowing air to be sucked into the carbi instead of fuel.

Ice auger isn't getting gas....

You will probably have to remove and disassemble the carburetor. Clean thoroughly and reassemble. Drain the gas line until fresh fuel comes out. Always run premium nonoxygenated( no ethanol ) fuel in your auger and add a fuel stabilizer like stabil or seafoam .this will help keep the problem from reoccurring. Hope this helps.

My bike wont fire

First put a nail in the plug boot and hold it close to the engine and crank it over to see if you have spark to the plug, if you do, pull the spark plug out and see if it's wet. If the plug is dry put about a teaspoon of gas in the plug hole and put it back together, it should run for a few seconds. If it does that you have a fuel supply problem. It may have a fuel shutoff valve inoperative, or a carburetor problem. If you have no spark to start with and the plug is wet with gas, you have an ignition problem. If the exhaust smells like gas you are probably getting lots of fuel, but the spark plug can tell us lots of things. A new spark plug probably won't hurt either.

Badger plus auger runs, but the auger doesn't spin

Here's a online free manual you can download and print for a Tanaka post hole digger, as your title stated that's what you have.

However, I noticed that you wrote you have a Badger Plus auger, so I tried to find info on that, but a manual doesn's exist outside the manufacturer, you can call them to see if they'll mail you one.

I's suggest you look at the gearbox, as it sounds as if you've sheared a key inside the gearbox on the main drive shaft, based on your description. The gear box is straightforward with a simple 12:1 gear reduction ratio and uses only two (2) gear wheels and shafts.

I couldn't attach the picture but here's a link that will show the gear box, just scroll down once it loads. It should be easy to open and repair the gearbox, as there isn't much to it. Drain the gear oil and separate the halves and you can check for a sheared key on either of the gear wheels and replace the broken one. They're designed to shear to prevent damaging the more expensive gear wheels, etc.

Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

Ardis Ice Auger

I pick up a power head from the junk yard this past weekend. The unit was made by Feldmann Mfg. and engineering. I believe this is the same company that manufactures Jiffy ice augers. I paid $3 for it. It looks like it is from the 50's or 60's. It was complete except for the auger. The motor was froze from sitting, but after disasembling, cleaning, cutting new gasket, freeing the rings and numerous other problems I got it running. I found augers in the Northern hydraulics catalog in sizes from 3" to 12". They are for earth and the 8" was $139.99. You would need to contact them for the shaft size to see if it will fit in the power head you have.
