Question about Vacuums

Open Question

I have a Kipor Kge 3000ti sinemaster. My problem is after storage for about 6months the generator won't start with the key ignition. Usually when this happens a few pulls on the recoil pull start rope the generator would start. However, while transporting home from last hunting trip the pull start recoil rope broke. This year I can't start the generator. Should I drain gas from the carb? I've put fuel stabilizer in the gas during storage. First the generator sounded like it wanted to start. Now when I turn the ignition key - there is no sound. Is the battery dead now? Thanks for the help. Travis

SOURCE: Sounds funny/shutting off after few minutes

Yup! Clogged hose on the back of the cannister! Unit is designed to shut off for 30 minutes when this happens to protect your motor. Remove top of hose where debris enters the cannister through a filter above it, then remove the other end of the hose from the bottom of the back of the cannister, take it outside and use something long that'll fit inside the hose to force out all the clogged debris and hair through the top of the hose.

Hi tifix1...
Yes, that could cause your problem.
I will offer a few more things to check and repair/replace, maybe there is a few things that you missed.
Please take time to rate me

Sounds like you have dirt/debris in your caburetor jets,fuel passages or a diaphgram that is becoming non-flexible.
Check/Clean/Replace your Air Filter, a dirty air filter can make your engine run to rich with fuel.
Note: ALWAYS USE COMPRESSED AIR TO CLEAN YOUR JETS AND PASSAGES, VERY IMPORTANT.
Note:Before you disassemble the carburetor:
Mark each piece with a awl, or some kind of instrument that will make an alignment scratch before you disassemble the carburetor into separate pieces.
That way you will know which way it goes back together when you reassemble it.
Sometimes you can get by with priming the carburetor or by using starting fluid and letting it run a few times like that, and it will flush the gunk out of the jets,but most of the time you will need to rebuild the carburetor.
Check you fuel line condition after a while they will degrade and need replacment.
Check/Clean/Replace your fuel filter if you have one.
When you remove your fuel lines from the carburetor be sure to make a drawing to how the lines are connected to the carburetor.
Normally the big line will be the line the fuel filter is connected to inside of the tank.The smaller of the two lines is the return to the fuel tank from the carburetor after it is pumped thru the carburetor by the primer bulb.
Make sure you are using fresh fuel...and oil mix if your using a two cycle mower or weedeater with the oil to the right mixture and not too much oil as it can cause hard starting.
If the trimmer is over a couple of years old, then I recommend that you buy and install a new carburetor repair kit,because the diaphragm will get hard and that will cause it to be hard to crank.
The diaphgram may look good and flexible, but it can be deceiving and not act as a fuel pump as it should because it has become too hard and will cause hard starting,start and run and shut off, etc.
When you clean your carburetor, I recommend that you use a laquer thinner type cleaner to clean and dissolve the laquer build-up in the float and needle jet passages.
Be sure to remove all plastic and rubber parts before using the laquer thinner because it can dissolve the plastic parts and render them unuseable.
Be sure to use COMPRESSED AIR to blow out all the fuel and air passages.The higher air pressure is needed to blow some of the trash/debris from the fuel or air passages.
Be careful when blowing out the passages, because there are sometimes small rubber type seats in the bottom of some of the passages.
Keep in mind that the float (if you have one) for the carburetor must be level when you go to reassemble the carburetor or follow the instructions you get with the carburetor kit, or you could also ask the parts man that you get your kit from.
When you clean your carburetor and remove the jet screws, you will first need to lightly seat the jet screws.
But before you lightly seat the jet screws count the number of turns it takes to seat the jet screws from their original position.
Be sure to mark the turns down on a piece of paper.
That way when you put the jets back in, you know to lightly seat them first and then turn them back out to their original position before you started.
Note:
The little spring inside of the carburetor goes under the float arm.
That is where your fuel inlet needle/float valve is located...on the arm at the end.
Normally there is a small indetion in the carburetor base and a small protrusion on the underneath of the float arm where the spring will be in the right postion for installation.
The spring will set in the indention and you will install the float arm with the needle/float valve and float rod into position over top of the spring,you will push down until it is in position and then you can tighten the screw that holds the float arm assembly in position.
Once you have your carburetor cleaned/rebuilt that should solve your problem.

    SOURCE: I have a Dyson Animal

    Hi there,

    I'm sorry to hear you're having difficulties with your DC28 Animal. From what you've described, it sounds as though the hose may have been twisted the last time you replaced the wand on the machine. This is easy to resolve by following these steps:

    • Extend the wand upwards as far as possible
    • With the rear of the cleaner facing you, follow the hose down to where it attaches to the cleaner
    • Whilst stretching the loose section of hose away from the cleaner, pull the hose release tab to detach the base of the hose from the cleaner
    • Allow the hose to untwist itself
    You should now be able to pull the wand out to it's fullest extent, removing it from the cleaner. Once you've done this, simply reattach the lower end of the hose to the cleaner.

    If you have any further questions, or if you'd prefer someone to talk you through this process, you can call us free on 1866MYDYSON.

    Kind regards,

    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.

    Stops


    I had the same problem when I renovated my kitchen. With boxes of stuff everywhere it was impossible to use Roomba. When I tried to use it again a few months later, it would stop after only a few minutes work. I had to buy a new battery which cost in excess of $100. Its better to loan it to a friend to be used than to put it into storage.

    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.

    Error 1203 on a Dell Printer - what is this?


    2080 1203 2055...Critical / Failure / Error...2080 1203 2346The Storage Management Service performs alert monitoring and logging. By default, the Storage Management Service starts when the managed system starts up. If you stop the Storage Management Service, then alert monitoring and logging stops. Alert monitoring does the following:
    • Updates the status of the storage object that generated the alert.

    • Propagates the storage object's status to all the related higher objects in the storage hierarchy. For example, the status of a lower-level object will be propagated up to the status displayed on the Health tab for the top-level Storage object.

    • Logs an alert in the Alert log and the operating system (OS) application log.

    • Sends an SNMP trap if the operating system's SNMP service is installed and enabled.

    The light on my Roomba flashes amber very quickly when plugged in directly with the adapter. what does this mean? it usually flashes slower when docked.


    If Roomba senses that its battery has been significantly discharged, Roomba will enter a special 16-hour refresh charge cycle. When the 16-hour refresh charge is initiated, the CLEAN light will quickly pulse red/amber. Do not interrupt the cycle once it has begun. The 16-hour refresh charge cycle is initiated by the robot and cannot be started manually.
    For long-term storage, always remove the battery from Roomba and store in a cool, dry place. Blue or black batteries should be stored after Roomba has been used. Yellow batteries should be stored after being fully charged.
    Battery capacity reduces overtime and usually the battery will need to be replaced each year.

    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
