Echo 3. Why does it move in either direction until I let off the control, then nothing?

New throttle pot installed 3 months ago. I let it sit all night. It moved for about 3 minutes, then nothing. I am disabled, can’t walk and live alone

Go to the system preferences and look at the universal access, check to see if you have turned on the "seeing" section, if so turn it off, this might be the source of the problem

Hi an welcome to FixYa. I am Kelly.

What has happened is that when the system cavitated the engine drew debris into the Jet orifice in bottom of the carb. You will have to remove the float bowl by removing the 4 mounting scres and the bowl nut.

Once you have the bowl off the Jet / Orifice is located in the very bottom of the carb. It will be recessed about 3/8 inch inside the ventrui. It is BRASS. It can be removed with a flat bladed screwdriver. When you get the jet out hold it up to the light. You should see a pinhole in it. No light.. JET is clogged. Just clean it and reinstall it.

After you have cleaned the jet... take a l;ook at the bowl nut. There are 2 holes in the side of the nut assy that must also be clear. Before you re-install the float bowl turn on the gas and gently lift the float \ensuring that fuel flow stops. Then as you let the float down it should pass fuel. If you do not have feul flow at this point then check the gas tank outlet for obstructions. Once you have established fuel flow reinstall the float bowl, nut and mounting screws.

It should work just fine after this.

A word to the wise.... DO NOT disconnect any linkages unless you have to...! Take a digital picture of the link connections BEFORE you remove them. Thrust me you will be glad you did!

Thanks for using FixYa,

SOURCE: oil blowing out throttle body on filter and

The oil may not be coming out of the throttle body. The crankcase breather system is actually in the rocker box covers. Yes, there is a breather gear in the crankcase but that is for the oil return to the oil pump.

The crankcase ventilation system vents crankcase pressure into the air cleaner as required by the EPA. The purpose is to route oil mist contained in the crankcase ari that is vented into the engine to be burned. There are 'umbrella valves" in the center section of the rocker boxes. Over time, the heat makes these pieces get hard and brittle since they are made of a type of rubber. When this happens, they don't stop the oil mist as well as they used to. The oil mist is blown into the air filter where it coaleses into drops of oil. This is normal for any Harley due to their engine design.

But, if it's too bad, I'd suggest replacing the umbrella valves. Simply remove the top and center section of the rocker boxes by removing the six bolts that hold the parts on the top of each cylinder. Replace the umbrella and the edge gaskets and replace the covers. Torque the bolts to 10-13 foot pounds.

Good Luck

On a shoprider Echo (SL73) trouble when putting into reverse, nothing happens, but when you go forward a second or two, reverse mode will work, what can i do to fix this

hi,There can be a number of reasons for this,

Firstly check that the throttle pot that is attached to the throttle lever is not loose , if it wobbles about that can be a indication that the throttle pot is worn and when you go in reserve its not giving the resistance to the controller. The pot could have become loose so check for that.

Secondly this can be a controller fault.

My Pride Wrangler PMV will not move. Battery is fully charged, lights and horn work. My repair person said the controller was sending out an error code on the throttle so he ordered and no change in read...

Bailey I think you said that the throttle pot was replaced and you are still getting the problem? Did your guy also check the speed pot? They can cause the same problem as a bad throttle pot. The controller is the brains and yes they are expensive but I question $1500. No they fail very seldom and usually its another part. How old is the scooter? There is a one year warranty on the controller. The dealer cost for the controller is about 1/3 of what you were quoted. Maybe a little wrangling could reduce your cost. But I would want all things checked first. Hope this helps you

The unit brews coffee OK. About 2-3 times per hour, the brewing element turns on and bubbles for a few minutes. This annoys me. Will it shorten the life of the coffee maker? It has done this since it was...

Hi. The pot is turning itself on because the thermostat is telling it to do so, because the coffee in the pot is getting cold. You might try feeling the surface under the pot is sitting on to see if it is hot. if it is not hot the keepwarm element is not working, if so get rid of it and but a heavy duty coffee maker ( Bunn ) It does not pay to repair them because the fright to and fro, plus the cost of the repair. Probably made in China. Good luck. bobbyone

Hi John.
The problem could be a worn throttle pot ( wig wag ). Next time you are driving the scooter, try moving the ends of the speed lever slowly up and down, instead of in or out as you normally use it. If the throttle pot is worn, moving the lever this way will make the machine speed up or slow down.
Another cause might be a faulty battery lead connector or a faulty motor connector.
Good luck. Neil.

I just replaced my tranny. It was working great

About 3 months ago, during my 25-mile commute to the ambulance base where I volunteer, my transmission started acting up. After a few minutes of driving normally, it started to upshift very hard. Each upshift was accompanied by a noticeable "Bang!" and it felt like the car was hitting a pot hole.

I immediately stopped and checked the tranny fluid at a service station, but the fluid level was fine and it didn't have any burnt smell. The car has 76K miles on it and the transmission fluid was changed at 50K per the maintenance schedule. I had no choice but to continue on to the base, driving very gently.

I made a stop about 5 minutes before arriving, to pick up dry cleaning. I was in the cleaners for about 8 minutes, and when I came out the hard shifting had completely disappeared. The car drove smoothly for the next 3 months.

Now, this problem seems to recur any time I drive the car even remotely hard. We're not talking about full-throttle accelerations here, since my everyday driving stays below 2500 RPM to save on gas. But if I'm in a hurry and start driving a touch harder - crossing over 3500 RPM - then the tranny will start shifting hard within minutes. Let it sit for 10 minutes with the engine off, and the problem is gone again
