Small Engine Troubleshooting Problems? Ask a Mechanic Now.
Ok I want to try this tomarrow. So how do I get back to you? It is now 11pm so I will have to wait until morning.
Thanks, XXXXX XXXXX be mailing you tomarrow.
Sorry I did not get back to before. Just a long day. Checked the solenoid before starting it and got to know the sound. Ran it until it stopped and and quickly turned key on and off and heard the click each time it stopped. So it is not the solenoid. However, I did find the problem and gave it a temp. fix will give a perm. later. Was so happy that I went out and cut for an hour in the fine rain and it never did lose power or stop. You were in the right church but wrong pew. I told the service person I took it to that I thought also that it was due to the solenoid but he convinced me that either it worked or it did not. ( as stated before) I might as well have saved my $80 I paid him to check it out and he had ii for 8 weeks. Can you guess what the problem was. Also I do not want to say that I was not satisfied with my expert but I do not think that I should have to pay the $11. How do I do that??
I would not give you a neg. rating because I know that if you were with the machine you would have gotten it. Just as the individual I took it to should not have been so sure that it was not a gas starvation problem. ( I also found out that he is not the offical repair shop for the TSC only that some of the workers are sending him business.) Which is ok but he should not charge if he can not solve the problem if he hold himself out to being able to fix it.
I knew it was starving for gas so took the solenoid out and check yes it was snaping in an out as it should but I noted that the neoprem at the top of the plunger was pushed up on the serated part. I pushed it down and as it went in and out it came back up. So called real offical parts person and he said I had to purchase the whole solenoid as that neoprem at top did not come seperate. As the machine viberated it was letting this come up and partly block the gas flow. I used a rap around the seration and then pushed the neoprem back on. It worked fine. I will use a little liquid steel to fix it in the next few days. On the inside so that it can not come out and foul the carbarator. So what do I just do nothing now I do not want to click on (not satisfied with you expert) because I am. I would and probably us you again.
