You probably broke a cylinder ring. The cylinders are dry when you haven't started them for a while and sometimes that extra friction catches a ring just right and breaks it. A break in the ring kills compression and therefore power. Also the ring allows oil to come up from the oil pan into the combustion chamber where it doesn't burn and you get all the smoke.
Run a compression check on each cylinder by putting a compression tester in the spark plug hole. If one reading is a lot lower than the average...you found your culprit
Take out and look for carbon accumulated on the plug points, you
could have worn piston rings. If the points are new and it started fine
but after a few hundred miles the poor-start condition returned, then
look at the plugs again. If they are now carboned up, then either the fuel
is wrong, too heavy of loads were pulled, or the rings are worn and need replacing.
I think you will be very lucky if you try to update the bios in an effort to cure it but its worth a try. I presume you are in the uk so ring this number 0871 3761020 which is medion tech support . Be aware that updating (flashing) the bios is a risky business with an already dodgy bios. there is a chance that it can ruin your motherboard if it goes wrong. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED.
The Cold inlet for this machine is on the right side.. with a blue indicator ring on it. When I say Right this is looking at the machine from the back.. Left if looking at the machine from the front. in other words the inlet closest to the edge of the machine.
If you are able to pull the machine out from the wall a little.. Start the fill cycle with cold water reach behind the machine and feel the supply hoses. If the hose closest to the edge of the machine is warm.. you simply have the hoses hooked up wrong.
Turn off the water.. swap hoses.. and all should be well..
I doubt the blue colour ring was put on the wrong inlet.. but.. stranger things have happened.
The Hot inlet should be indicated with a red colour ring..
In most installs the hoses will cross over each other.. not unusal at all. Always use new hoses when installing a washer.
Your problem lays in one of two area's. Either your regulator needs adjusted or most likely it is your LP tank
Look in the tank fitting for a small brass ring It will have 2 small slots on either side. This ring can back off over time and then will not allow the male fitting to fully depress the valve in the tank thus reducing your gas flow. I have had this happen on several tanks a bit of caution and a small flat bladed screw driver has always fixed the issue
318's are known to have flywheel problems and poor engagement of the starter due to incorrect alignment of the starter to the ring gear.To check either of these things you need to take the motor out of the tractor to look at the ring gear,starter drive and starter aliggnment.Before you go through this pain replace the ignition switch or have it tested.p.s deere only supplies a replacement flywheel but a ring gear can be ordered through a case dealer if you get it for a stinner with the onan engine.
First thing to do is pull your dipstick and check for broken or missing O-ring also as you pull it, look to make certain that it was seated properly and all the way locked. If either condition exists, you will be leaking into the crankcase which will cause your symptoms
