The carburetors are very temperamental and have some very small parts. Small springs are inside too. These parts are easily lost. It is a little tedious to do even for younger folks. I am not saying you can't do it, but due to the nature of working on them; I would suggest a replacement carburetor. I can also better serve you if you tell me the manufacturer and the model number for your machine. That way, I can locate a replacement carburetor and/or a rebuild kit for it. There are 2 kinds of kits. One is called a gasket and diaphragm kit and contains only a few replacement parts (but these parts enable it to run again); the other kit is a FULL rebuild kit that costs more and has many parts that you may not USE or even NEED. Please reply to this solution and I will be happy to assist you further.

My refrigerator sounds like someone is running a weed eater behind it. if i turn it off and then back on it stops. this refrigerator is probably 20 plus years old. is it dying?


Hi,

Your refrigerator compressor is making such noise.The compressor supplies the cool air to the freezer and then freezer it goes to the refrigerator.The vibration is transfered to the plastic boards on the refrigerator and it makes the weed eater noise type.
The coil in the compressor has been worned out.You have to replace it.

post a comment for further assistance.
Thank you for using fixya have a nice day:-)

I have weed eater model FX26SC it starts and when I put it to run the weed eater doesn't spin but is running


Either the clutch is worn out or the flexible drive shaft is broken. Either repair is likely to cost almost as much as a new unit.

Unless your engine is more that 25 years old (not possible for an Enduro), there are no points. The ignition is solid state, which means that a weak spark will require a new ignition module. Not the end of the world - they're cheap and easy to find.

Change the plug first!

I have a snapper S31SST weed eater. It is 4-5


Remove spark plug and check for fire with a spark tester. (some inline models are also available and safer since the spark plug stays in place using those types)

If no spark:
Remove covers and unplug small kill-circuit wire(s) from ignition coil...Test for spark.
If you have spark the switch needs replacing.
If you have no spark the coil needs replacing.
Hope this helps.

Do it yourself repair: common repairs for a weed eater Amazingly, weed eaters are one of the simplest yard tools to take care of. One of the first things you should do to keep your weed eater in good condition is to clean it. It is important not to clean your weed eater with water or gas, which may destroy the engine. The best, and easiest way to clean it is by blowing off dirt and grass with an air compressor or a leaf-blower after every use. The next most important thing to maintain on your weed eater is string. When the string gets low you can remove the lower part of the head (the part that the string comes out of) by pushing in slightly and turning the head counterclockwise. Cut the new string no shorter than 6 inches or the weed eater will not advance the string properly when in use. Thread the string back though the guides, making sure to follow the arrows on the guide. If the string is not put through the guides the right way, the head may pop off during use. Next, replace the bottom of the head by pushing and turning clockwise. You can totally skip this step by buying a string replacement cartridge. Though it is much more expensive, it saves you the trouble of having to restring your weed eater yourself. window.google_render_ad(); If you find that the head of your weed eater is worn on bottom or hard to get off to replace the string then it is time to replace it. This can be done very simply by unscrewing the two screws at the top of the head and slipping it off. Then, just slide the new one on and tighten the screws. After a few months of use, you may find that your weed eater is losing power or that it is making a strange lower pitched noise. This may be caused by a dirty filter. To check, unscrew the knob or wing nut on the carburetor. Inside you will find a small square screen, this is the filter. If the filter is gray or black then it is time for it to be cleaned. The easiest way to clean it is to blow it out with an air compressor. It can also be washed with plain water, but you must let it dry before placing it back into the carburetor. Once the filter is white or only light grey it is ready to use again. Always make sure to mix the gas and two-cycle oil in the proportions that are listed in the weed eater’s manual. Never use anything but two-cycle oil, normal car oil will not work and will damage your engine.
