Q:

Gas Blower Question

A:

Outdoor equipment always seems to have some part that breaks or comes loose. It sounds like this is a part that is needed to start the blower. The expert will review and respond but if you do need to take the blower in for repairs, I attached the link to Sears Home Services below. I hope you can get back to clearing those leaves soon.

Thank you for your question.

I am sorry you are having a problem with the blower. Without a model number, I can only give you general information. I suspect the "trigger" you are referring to is the choke lever. If this lever is broke, the engine most likely will not start. The reason is the engine is not being choked. On most models, the lever is not replaceable. To cure the problem you have to order the carburetor. If you would like me to see if the lever is available separately, please reply below with the model number.

Thank you for using Manage my life.

Model 358794765, SN 10279N602044. I went to what was once a Repair Ctr in Birmingham and they pulled up part 545144901 and on the diagram the choke lever is shown as a seperate part. Where mine broke, the top of a metal shaft is exposed that goes into the carburetor. One side of the shaft has a flat edge suggesting the plastic lever just slides onto the shaft. I tried once and could not move the shaft to "Start" but I think this was more the tight area I was in and not spending time. The part was like $2.25 with $10.00 handling and I wanted to make certain that if I placed the order, 1.) Would the rest of the plastic silde off the shaft, 2.) Would that part number slide back on and engaqge the choke. I am also curious if this model is made by other companies, ie Homelite etc. It is less than a year old and I am sure the carburetor liklely will cost more than the blower itself. Thank you for telling me it that part looks accurate and should it engage the choke if replaced and last, does it just slip off? Dennis

Dennis, The blower is made by Poulan. They manufacture products under a few different names. If the blower was running fine up to the point the lever broke you should be able to get by with replacing just the lever. To install the lever you will need to remove air filter cover. This should give you access to the carburetor. Then with a flat blade screwdriver push the rest of the lever off the shaft. Once it is removed, the new lever should push on. I found most are a tight fit so you might have to use a little force to get it on. If the blower has been sitting for a long period of time with fuel in the tank You might want to replace the carburetor. The cost of the carburetor is around $25.00 and includes the lever. The reason why I recommend replacing the carburetor is the old fuel could have plugged the carburetor but you would not know that until the lever is replaced. I would hate to see you replace the lever only to fine it needs the carburetor. I looked up the warranty on the blower and it has a 2 year warranty. I recommend taking the blower in to have it repaired. The link below will bring up the closest drop off location. Please let me know if you need further assistance. Thank you for using Manage my life. Mark T.

Thank you for your question.

I am sorry you are having a problem with the washer. By what you have stated I suspect the water level pressure switch is the problem. If the contacts in the water level pressure switch fuse together, the washer will start to agitate as soon as it is started. To verify the problem you will need an ohmmeter to check the resistance of the water level pressure switch. First, unplug the washer and access the water level pressure switch. I have provided you with the instructions for accessing the water level pressure switch. Then make note of the wire connection and remove the wires. Once the wires are removed turn the meter to ohms and place the lead on the terminals, where the yellow/black and the caramel wire connects. The reading should be open or ol. If you get a closed reading, the water level pressure switch is defective. The part number for the water level pressure switch is WH12X10279 and can be ordered from our parts website: Sears Parts Direct . before you install the water level pressure switch make sure you can blow through the hose and the washer has been drained. If water is left in the washer the washer may over flow on the first fill after the repair.

Please let me know if you need further assistance with the repair of the washer.

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services .

Thank you for using Manage my life.
