If you are not familiar with electrical wiring, I would suggest an electrician. NEVER TRUST COLORS! Most of the time, white goes with white, black with black, red with red, and bare to bare. But depending upon whether this is a 110 or 220 they could be mixed up depending upon how the feed wire is wired at the box. Hope this helps! c

Check that debris has not jammed the impeller. Small stone or piece of wood or wire, even a thick layer of sediment can prevent the impeller from spinning.

I sympathise with your problem.

In this life, people with little money must from time to time put our customary self reliance on hold and cultivate those friends, acquaintances and neighbours who can do things we can't and develop a support network for ourselves. It is better if it is a mutual support network - you would be surprised how many men will work in exchange for cake. In my time I have worked many hours for a man whose wife made excellent cake.

Church and social groups often have mutual support groups in the congregations.

I am sure you have at least one neighbour who would be offended if he discovered you are struggling with something and hadn't asked him for help.
Good luck!

Electricity. Currently, 95% of Singapore's electricity is produced using natural gas, while the rest is produced by coal, oil, municipal waste, and solar. Singapore is limited in terms of cost-effective and reliable renewable energy sources.

Simplest solution is to repair or replace the pull cord. Small generators are designed to be simple. The pull cord assembly and spring are usually a single combined part. They are usually fairly easy to swap yourself.

I suggest taking a close look at the starter motor - removing and testing it and while it is off check the engine will turn reasonably well by hand...

Did you try to jump the battery with another? Do that first after that the clicking is coming from the solenoid so follow the sound although that "sound" usually means it's working.
When you have the jumper battery connected and it still won't start tap on the starter. I hope this helps. Take care.

Generator voltage is regulated with a voltage regulator. Depending on what type of generator depends on what type of regulator it uses.

If the house GFCI trips only when the vanity receptacle circuit has power then likely the neutral and ground wires inside the vanity GFCI enclosure are in contact with each other.

To isolate the problem, suggest you pull the vanity GFCI receptacle out of the enclosure but leave all wires connected. Make sure no little hands can get near it. Then power on and see if it still trips the house breaker. If it doesnt trip then likely the vanity GFCI ground wire was touching the neutral.

If the carburetor bowl is full of water it won't continue to run after it has used up the fuel you poured into carburetor.

Suggest you drain fuel bowl and the tank. Then put in 2 gallons of fresh fuel and try again.

Capture the fuel you drain from the fuel bowl and another cup or more from the tank. Put it in a glass container and if there's water, you'll see a visible line separating water and fuel... fuel floats.

Is this a new bidet installation, USA? What year was home built and/ or remodeled?

It's probably safe but It would not be wise to use the unit without GFCI protection.

Please describe the installation. Is it plugged into a bathroom circuit with a GFCI breaker in the house panel or is there a GFCI receptacle protecting multiple outlets in the bathroom.

The typical cause for GFCI nuisance trips is an improper connection of protective equipment ground and neutral (grounded conductor) somewhere downstream of the GFCI protection device. IOTWs, a white neutral wire is touching bare ground wire or metal box.

You might try plugging the bidet into a long 3 wire extension cord so you can try a different GFCI outlet... in the kitchen or dining room. If it works at different GFCI circuits then likely it's not the unit but rather the bathroom wiring.
