Hi Sam... Sounds like you still 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.Also be sure to check and clean your spark arrestor in the exaust,if you have one installed on your engine. Note: ALWAYS USE COMPRESSED AIR TO CLEAN YOUR JETS AND PASSAGES, VERY IMPORTANT. Note:Before you disassemble the carburetor:Write down on a piece of paper or take a picture of how the linkage attaches to your carburetor for later reference when you go to reinstall your 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 a very small shot of 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.Be sure to check your fuel tank for water and dirt/debris, if there is water/debris then you need to clean your tank.Check you fuel line condition after a while they will degrade and need replacment. Check/Clean/Replace your fuel filter if you have one, normally they are located in the fuel tank of chainsaws and weedeaters.When you remove your fuel lines from the carburetor be sure to make a drawing to how the lines are connected to the carburetor or take a pictue for later reference.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 if your using a two cycle chainsaw or weedeater with the oil to the right mixture...too much oil as it can cause hard starting and excessive smoking.If the chainsaw/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 indention 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.Please take time to rate me Bud

I have a cobra "qs2500"electric garden shredder. It blows fuses at the plug. Have replaced the capacitor but hasn't made any difference. Should I replace the mini circuit breaker? Any ideas?

If your Cobra QS2500 electric garden shredder is blowing fuses at the plug, even after you've replaced the capacitor, there may be an issue with the mini circuit breaker. Before attempting any repairs, it's important to take safety precautions, such as unplugging the shredder and handling electrical components with care. To troubleshoot the problem, start by checking the power cord for any damage or fraying. If the cord is damaged, it will need to be replaced. Next, inspect the shredder blades to ensure that they are not jammed or damaged. Damaged blades can cause the motor to draw too much power, which can trip the circuit breaker. If the power cord and blades are in good condition, you can test the mini circuit breaker using a multimeter. If the circuit breaker is faulty, it will need to be replaced. However, if you're not comfortable working with electrical components, it's best to consult a professional to diagnose and fix the problem. Overall, it's important to always prioritize safety when working with electrical devices. Take the necessary precautions to prevent injury or damage to the shredder or other property.

260 MF tractor dry brakes but very weak

If you have a 260 MF tractor with dry brakes that are very weak, there could be a few potential causes for this issue:

Worn Brake Pads - If the brake pads on your tractor are worn down, they may not be able to provide the necessary friction to stop the tractor effectively. In this case, you'll need to replace the brake pads with new ones.
Low Brake Fluid - Your tractor's brakes rely on hydraulic fluid to function properly. If the fluid level is low, it can cause the brakes to feel weak. Check the brake fluid reservoir and add more fluid if needed.
Air in the Brake Lines - Air bubbles in the brake lines can reduce the effectiveness of the brakes. You'll need to bleed the brake lines to remove any air bubbles and restore proper brake function.
Faulty Master Cylinder - The master cylinder is responsible for generating hydraulic pressure in the brake system. If the master cylinder is faulty, it can cause weak brakes. In this case, you'll need to replace the master cylinder.
Worn Brake Rotors or Drums - If the brake rotors or drums are worn or warped, they may not be able to provide the necessary friction to stop the tractor effectively. In this case, you'll need to replace the rotors or drums with new ones.
It's important to have a trained mechanic diagnose and repair the issue with your tractor's brakes to ensure safe operation

How to fix MF tractors with shoe brakes to hold better, the tractor is MF260?

If you're experiencing issues with your MF cracker's shoe breaks, there are a few steps you can take to address the problem and improve their grip. Here are some steps you can take:

Check the brake pads: The first thing you should do is inspect the brake pads. Make sure they are in good condition and not worn out. If the pads are damaged or worn out, replace them with new ones.
Adjust the brake tension: The tension on the shoe breaks may need to be adjusted to provide better grip. You can do this by adjusting the brake rod or cable. Consult your tractor manual to learn how to properly adjust the brake tension on your MF260.
Clean the brake drum: Over time, brake dust and debris can accumulate on the brake drum, reducing the shoe breaks' grip. You can clean the drum with a brake cleaner to remove any buildup that may be causing the problem.
Replace the brake drum: If the brake drum is damaged or excessively worn, it may need to be replaced. A worn or damaged drum will reduce the shoe breaks' grip, even if the pads are in good condition.
Use the brakes properly: Proper use of the brakes can also help improve their grip. Avoid applying the brakes suddenly or using them excessively, as this can cause them to overheat and reduce their effectiveness.
By following these steps, you can improve the grip of the shoe breaks on your MF cracker, making it safer and more efficient to operate.
