Try tilting the machine backwards for a few hours. It may be oil on the piston that is causing a vaccum

My Stanley J309 300 amp battery jump starter will not recharge. When plugged in with a household cord both red lights and the one green light, light up.

You need to open the casing to access th inside components.
Remove the screws on the backside, cut any stickers or labels that cover the seam.
You will see a 12v voltage converter mounted to the back cover.
Test it to ensure it is working properly. Is it putting out the proper voltage? If it is then check the battery to see if it has proper voltage or can hold a charge. These are the two most common problems and can be easily replaced if defective. The circuit board is less common.

Pull Cord Stops...

could be valve needs set. if it isn't opening at the right time it wont release compression for it to start. it may be the shear key in the flywheel has sheared if you have hit something like a big rock or log or something causing it to die suddenly.

Why cant I pull the starter cord

If its on the compression stroke when you are pulling it will be hard to pull it, because you're fighting against the compression of the engine, make sure the valves are at the correct position and not fully closed when you are pulling.

STARTING PROBLEMS ?? For a gas engine to start basically you need two things..fuel delivery and good spark....remove the spark plug ...Is it wet with gas??IF YES good you have fuel going into the cylinder.BUTwhat about spark?..Put the plug back in Pull the plug wire use a wooden closepin to hold the wire real close to the top of the sparkplug and have someone pull thr cord you should see little sparks jumping from the metal connector on the end of the plug wire to the sparkplug if you have spark.. if you have both fuel and spark maybe you have bad gas??You could try shooting a little starting fluid[ether] into the sparkplug hole screw the plug back in and try starting again..Goodluck RW...

HPG62 A45SA keeps cutting out while plugged into the mains (the battery has been removed). With the battery this problem doesn't happen. Instead, the plugged in not charging sign...

Sounds like your cable/charger/ computer AC plug in had been pulled, damaged, or the transformer is going out. If you can lat you hands on a similar known good AC cord it would help you trouble shoot the problem, you could eliminate the cord and focus on the computer plug-in. The AC/Charger cord transforms AC to DC to charge you battery and and run you computer. Another cable has to have similar specs (output voltage) as to not damage the components. As to the " plugged in not charging sign appears...", Is the battery old, replacement, does it deplete after using?

How do I replace the pull start?

Remove the four screws securing the starter houseing, with the starter removed, pull the cord out, tuck the cord into the cut a way in the side of the pulley and allow the cord to wind in slowley to let the tention off the spring, make sure all the tention has gone, now remove the centre screw, take away the pulley centre and the round spring from behind, note the hole in the pulley and the centre hub for the spring location, now carefully remove the pulley, be aware there is a large spring behind, remove the knot in the end and remove the starter handle, fit the cord back into the new pulley, refit the pulley into the cover making sure to locate into the spring behind, thread the cord back through the cover and reconnect the handle, knot the cord, re fit the round spring back into the locating hole in the pulley, re fit the pulley hub making sure the spring fits into the hole in the hub, re fit the securing screw, now put the cord back into the cut a way in the side of the pulley, wind up the spring, allow it to pull the cord back into the starter, only wind it enough to pull the cord fully back into the cover, re fit the starter.

New saw - will not start. Have put in premium gas/oil mix. Getting spark from plug when cord pulled. Hasn't even fired once.

It's possible the brake is on. Try pushing the brake forward then pulling it back until you hear it click. Then try cranking it again.

The remote module that plug into wall outlet has melted and cord plugged toside will not pull out

1. Put the power off that supply the wall outlet.
2. Cut the cord, and install or put a new rubberized plug
into it, with a rating of at least 20 to 30 amperes.
3. Replace the wall outlet with a rating of 30 amperes.
Then, you can run your heater without any trouble.

Loading a stanley electric stape/nail gun

The problem you are having is common, so don’t feel bad. I learned all of this helping another individual that had no idea how to use this tool. The confusion comes from the fact that it loads differently than most staplers. The staples are NOT loaded on top of the pull out shaft; they are inserted directly into the slot that opens when you pull the shaft out. The other big issue is a safety feature. If the nose of the tool is not placed firmly against a surface, it will not fire. Go to Stanley’s website’s knowledge base and type in the model number TRE550, and you can get a PDF of directions. Here is a step by step with a pic below: Unplug the tool. Squeeze the end of the shaft at the rear bottom of the tool and pull out the shaft. Flip the tool over on it’s back. Insert the staples, (points up) and then slide the shaft back in. Plug it in, press the on button (under the the power cord in the back). Press the nose squarely against the material and press the trigger.a665293.jpg
