Sears Craftsman Cordless Screwdriver Model 315111820 lost torque

When replacing the batteries, the chuck assembly fell out of the housing. After replacing it the way I thought it was, the torque is much less and will not start a screw. I think it has something to do with the placement of two silver washers which I currently have together directly in front of the motor. Does anyone know the exact positioning of these two silver rings? I tried the Sears site and they no longer have any info on this model. Thanks.

You don't want to tighten them down just turn them in until the are just snug and then turn them out.
Start with the low at 2 full turns out and the high at about 1 full turn out. Start the saw and let it idle adjust the low idle to where it runs smooth. Adjust the high until the saw runs as much rpm as you can get at w.o.t. (Wide Open Throttle).

The rotor is attached to the crank via taperlock. You must remove the rotor bolt which goes thru the rear bearing. Then take a 3 LB. rubber or deadblow hammer and sharply strike the rotor on the laminations. not the winding. You usually have to do this several times from both sides before it breaks the taperlock free, Use force behind your hammer swing, It will eventually come off. Have patience.

No 110 voltage


Check the circuit breakers for a tripped one. If all OK, then the brushes may need to be replaced. Here's a tip on how to flash the field in the generator: This tip comes from the Briggs & Stratton Customer Education Department. As an alternative to flashing a rotor winding with a battery applied to the brushes, an electric drill may be used. Follow these steps to flash the generator:
  • Plug the electric drill into the generator receptacle. (Cordless drills do not work)
  • If the drill is reversible, move the direction switch to the forward position.
  • Start the generator
  • While depressing the trigger on the drill, spin the drill chuck in reverse direction. This will excite the field and the generator will now produce electricity. If spinning the chuck one direction does not work, try spinning the chuck in the other direction as you may have the reverse switch positioned backwards.
Use caution not to get your hand or other materials caught in the chuck. As soon as the field is excited, the generator will produce power and the drill will turn on.
The reason this works is because the electric motor in the drill will act as a small generator when spun backwards. The magnets in the drill's motor induce a voltage into the motor windings, which is fed back through the trigger, cord and into the generators receptacle. From there it goes into the power winding of the stator. The voltage going through the power winding creates a magnetic field, which is intensified due to the iron core of the stator laminations. The rotor intersects this magnetic field as it is spun past the power winding, thus inducing a voltage in the rotor winding. Once current flow is present in the rotor winding the rotor has been flashed.
If flashing the field does not make the generator work, you may have additional problems, besides a lack of magnetism in the rotor. Further testing will be needed. Hopefully, this will give a simple way to field flash your generator if needed

My Dewalt cordless drill, model DC970, is fully charged and turns. However, when I try to turn a screw, the drill does not move. What should I do?


There is a collar that controls the torque of the driver just behind the chuck. Rotate it until the drill icon lines up for full power.

Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly
I have tried going to the owner's manual and the parts listings

I even know the cylinder head has 4 bolts and the head part number is 21714
Yet nothing I have looked at tells me the actual engine number. With and actual engine Model Number I can answer your question without guessing which engine you have.

This appears to be a GN320 engine.
If that is the case... the torque is 44 Ft Lbs

CHECKING/ADJUSTING VALVE TO

ROCKER ARM CLEARANCE

Every 50 hours of operation, remove the rocker cover and

check the valve to rocker arm clearance.

When adjusting the clearance, the engine should be at room

temperature, and the piston should be at Top Dead Center

(TDC) of its compression stroke (both valves are closed). The
correct clearance is 0.05-0.1mm (0.002-0.004 in.).

Want to remove the starter recoil from my powermate generator


I got one of these pieces of junk, and had same problem you described.

You will need to remove the end panel to get to the blower housing. You will have to thread the rope through the handle until you have enough slack to remove the rope from the handle. The end panel should now be free to remove entirely.

Find the 3 bolts that hold the blower housing on, and remove them. Once you get it off, make sure that the rope has a knot in it so it won't get retracted into the pulley recoil assembly. Take a screwdriver and push the rope back down into the pulley (that was my problem). Assembly is opposite of taking apart.

My craftsman generator model # 580.32672 starts but will not put out any power ive tried a few suggestions but nothing has worked


Look in the manual. There is likely something about field flashing the magnetic field. According to the Briggs and Straton web site, the easiest way to do this is to.
1) start the generator
2) plug an electric drill into the generator (without drill bit)
3) make sure drill is set to forward direction (if a reversable drill.
4) pull the trigger on the drill.
5) If the drill does not start, spin the drill's chuck clockwise (When looking down at the chuck from the drill bit end). Spin counter-clockwise if holding it like a pistol and pointing away from yourself.
6) Do this several times (hard) until the the generator will kick in and suddenly make the drill spin at full speed.
Be careful not to drop the drill or poke someone with it as you celebrate success.

you have to download it, but it isn't too much trouble, page 16 lists a whole laundry list of possible problems. Word of advice, change your oil in the pump regularly, if it is burnt appearing you might want to consider replacing rings etc and complete teardown, we didn't and trashed the pump.
