troubleshooting a treadmill

A:

I know how important it is to have a good working treadmill in the home to get a good workout. I did some research and I was able to find the owners manual for your treadmill. I am also adding a second link in where you can view a similar question. I hope this helps with your treadmill troubles while you wait for your expert response.

Thank you for your question on the treadmill suddenly not running. There is no fuse on the unit other than the reset button next to the power cord and on/off switch and you said that the console had power.

It could be a number of things with it being that old.

It could be the console as well as the motor control board or the motor choke or the power supply that feeds the motor controller.

If you feel comfortable with checking for voltage in and out of the controls and you have volt ohm meter then we may be able to find the problem.

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 .

Please let me know what you want to do. Because of its age you may want to consider replacing the treadmill since some of the parts are no longer available.

A:

Thank you for the update Lou8005. Yes I did mention that it could be problem with one of several parts. I looked at parts availability and discover that either they are no longer available or would have to be sent in to be rebuilt. I did not see that you could order any of the parts I mentioned directly. You may want to remove the hood on the treadmill and check all the wire connections and to see if you may have a bad connection on the motor harness or the power board and motor controller. You said that you did not smell any connections burning but there could be a loose connection that has oxidized over the years and know is not making a good contact. Please be careful if you intend to check it while still plugged in and on. I agree with you that it may be a waste of time and money to attempt any repair. Sam A.

Q:

New snowblower used 3 times last Feb/Mar. will not start 247881731 Craftsman Snowthrower

A:

Thank You for choosing Sears PartsDirect.com and being a valued member. It is unfortunate to hear that you are having issues with your snow blower and I do understand your frustration. Glad to help out. I'm looking at your model number 247881731 and I recommend checking the engine for spark first. To check for spark remove the spark plug. Then connect the spark plug to the spark plug wire. Now you will need to hold the base of the spark plug to a clean metal surface with insulated pliers. Once you have the spark plug in position have a helper turn the engine over. You should see a blue spark from the spark plug. If you do not have spark, remove the kill wire from the module. Then check for spark again. If there is no spark, the module is defective. It can also be an issue with the fuel or the compression. The first thing I would do is remove the fuel filter and pour a few teaspoons for fuel into the throat of the carburetor. Then try to start the engine. If the engine starts and stalls the problem is in the fuel supply or carburetor. Usually the carburetor needs to be cleaned because it has been sitting. Once the carburetor is cleaned, fill the tank with fresh fuel and check the operation. If the engine does not try to start with pouring gas into the carburetor the problem could be with compression. To check the compression you need to remove the spark plug. Then tuck the spark plug wire out of the way. Put your finger over the spark plug hole to seal it. The compression should blow past your finger. If it does not the engine has an internal problem. I trust this information will help you.

 

Thank you for choosing Sears PartsDirect.com.

Old Thread but fyi for others. I had this problem and I did run it out of gas at end of season. This engine's carb seems to gunk up easy plus, if you have not used an ethanol treatment/fuel stabilizer you are getting water in your engine. See this discussion: http://www.boatingmag.com/gear/boatinglab-tests-fuel-stabilizers Can't easily get to carb or fuel filter. To get to, you have to remove heat shield & engine shroud. MTD Service Manual for 270 series here: http://support.mtdproducts.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/10584/~/professional-shop-manuals. Don't have to remove shield or shroud. Get something shallow to catch fuel and remove the screw on the angle on the bottom of the carb. Two screws, the bottom one holds the float bowl on, don't remove. I use a 2cycle boat engine primer to empty fuel tank gas. Remove the side screw and gas will start out strong then trickle down, so wait until sure system empty. After emptying system put fresh gas in tank with Sea Foam added. After refilling, remove side screw and flush by running fuel through until you get almost crystal clear gas. If you do in advance, let set overnight to start dissolving sludge. You can also use Sea Foam spray in the carb inlet. No air filter on snow blower. Let set awhile after spraying in to clean jets. I used starting fluid in the spark plug hole to get the engine running. You can also spray starting fluid or gas into the carb intake if you have a can with a tube. The intake is behind the shroud and under the heat shield and points back and towards the engine in the 12-2 o'clock position looking down from top. It took having the choke one click to the left to keep it running until fuel start flowing. Run for awhile to let the engine warm up and you should be good to go. I ran mine for an hour, spraying Sea Foam every so often in carb. I recommend using a 2 cycle fogging oil at end of season and removing the side screw to drain all of the fuel from the system.

Thanks Will. My friend suggested I use premium with SeaForm and I put that in the tank. I took the plug out several times and sprayed starter fluid in with no good results. I was thinking that with all fuel run out last year that there might have been a bit of moisture remaining. To my wife's alarm. I wheeled it into the kitchen and left it overnight. I played with fuel bulb but did not want to take it off and go somewhere I would regret. I removed the plug again and sprayed starter in, replaced the plug and took it to the garage. It started with one pull! Maybe needle valve was frozen with a touch of moisture. I've used it several times so far and I have to keep it choked pretty good to run smoothly. If I turn choke all the way to "run" machine threatens to stall and runs unevenly. I keep tweaking the choke until it sounds right. Blew about 6-7 inches this morning and looks like same amount for next morning.

My Craftsman 24" model #247.881731 is brand new and never used. I purchased it September 2015, assembled and ran for about 5 minutes to assure it would run. I now have 18 inches of snow and a blower that won't start. I put fresh gas in yesterday and exhausted myself on pull start. I switched to electric start and still nothing. I have syphoned all gas from tank. Put in a small amount of fresh gas along with some Sea Foam and still nothing. It appears I will need to remove the chute and belt housing just to get the remaining screw to remove shroud covering the carburetor. Got any tips on how to prime the carburetor without having to disassemble the machine to get to it?

Same problem as Paula and Lisa. Purchased new Craftsman snowblower August 2015 to replace a Craftsman Blower worn out after 15 years of solid performance. Careful to follow all installation and starting instructions explicitly. Fresh gas put in Friday, January 23; recommended oil added; Choke and throttle set; key in place. Engine "cranks" but does not turn over engine at all. Recoil starter tried but failed to start. Since it is under 2 year warranty I called service and they will send out a repair guy in February. Meanwhile I have 2' of snow and a new, unused blower sitting on the carport. By the time the repair techie comes the snow ill have melted and evaporated.
