Remove broken key from ignition

Stored scooter in garage and forgot to remove key from ignition. Had a very cold winter. Not sure, but maybe moisture got in. Anyway, turned key and it totally broke off in ignition. Sent for, and received replacement key. But have NO idea how to remove broken key from ignition. Is there an instrument or tool that might get broken key out of ignition?

If you have a habor frieght near buy you can buy a cheap small pick set. If possible try to grab it on both sides and it should come out , its almost always worked for me.

Good luck, Rob

SOURCE: a key broke off in the ignition of our handicap

This is a common issue with the travel scooters. It is usually an easy fix without having to replace the key-switch.
You need the following tools:
Good eyesight and / or good glasses to see down inside the key switch. A strong, thin needle. A jewelers flat screwdriver or eyeglass screwdriver.
The broken key inside the switch will have a flat back and a toothed topped. The toothed side moves a series of spring loaded pins inside the lock.
With the switch turned to the off position...
Place the jewelers screwdriver down inside the switch where the key's teeth are, pushing back the spring pins, and getting leverage under one of the teeth to lift the key out.
The needle is used to release friction and back pressure off the key back against the switch housing.
Work it carefully and be patient.
Once the key piece is out try ebay for a replacement if needed.
A common key number for Pride scooters is the A126

I have a full propane gas cylinder for my grill in my garage. It is very cold in the garage and I'm getting a propane smell. Does the cold effect this or is there probably another problem?

Cold shouldn't present any special hazard to a propane cylinder. Just make sure the valve is fully off. You can check for leaking with a little soapy water solution around the valve - look for bubbles. If any doubt, remove from enclosed space.

Honda chf 50 scooter hard to start when cold

Hi, Anonymous and the usual suspects are:
1. Spark plugs in bad condition or have an improper gap or are partially fouled.
2. Spark plug cables in bad condition.
3. Battery damaged or nearly discharged, should have 12.5 volts.
4. Check battery terminals for damage or corrosion, check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary.
5. Throttle controls not adjusted correctly.
6. Water or dirt in the fuel system.
7. Water or dirt in the carburetor.
8. Intake air leak.
9. Fuel tank vent hose and vapor valve plugged, or fuel line closed off, restricting fuel flow.
10. Choke valve inoperative.
11. Engine lubricant to heavy (winter operation).
12. Ignition is not functioning properly (possible sensor failure).
13. Faulty ignition coil.
14. Valves sticking.

Since you remove the window unit in the Winter and reinstall it in the Summer, as you should. Check the inside of the unit to make sure there's nothing blocking the fan blades. If you stored it in a basement or exterior shed or garage, a Field Mouse may have built a nest in it. Believe me, I've seen stranger things than that happen.

Its most likely the rubber tubing, and sack that connect the drum to the drain pump. You can either remove the back panel, or the panel in the bottom front of your washer to check for cracks in the rubber. It might be as simple as the tube came out of place during the move.
