Question and Answers

Q:

What type oil is used in a Craftsman rear tine tiller engine and gear box? There are 2 oil plugs.

A:

Both oil plugs are for the engine. Engines that are used in tillers are used for a number of applications. The oil plugs are placed in more than one place on the engine so if one plug is not accessible the other will be.

The engine uses 30 weight motor oil. The transmission on your tiller doesn't have oil in it. It has axle grease and never needs changing.

Q:

Whirpool Dryer(Model#LER7646EQ2; Type #178-00) is taking multiple cycles(2 or more) to dry clothes on the HIGH (Cotton) settings.

A:

Based on your symptom if the dryer is taking 2 or more cycles to dry the clothes usually indicates a restriction in the vent system. The dryer could also have a bad door seal, drum seal or the lint filter screen could be covered in a clear film of fabric softener residue too. Take the lint filter out and wash it with a soft bristle brush and warm soapy water. If the door seal and the front and rear drum seals are okay then the venting system is likely at fault. In order to know if the venting system is at fault, disconnect the vent hose from the back of the dryer and dry one load of clothes. The exhaust temperature should average 150 degrees when set on High heat. If the clothes dry in a normal amount of time then the venting system will need to be checked for any kinks, restrictions or blockages. If the clothes still takes 2 or more cycles to dry then the heating element will need to be removed and checked for any breaks in the element where it will likely be touching and welded to the housing.

Q:

Porter Cable model 637 EHD tiger saw type 2 #181985 sparked and died after cutting a nail. What broke?

A:

Thank you for your question.

I am sorry that you reciprocating saw has stopped running.

It could be a number of things, so lets start with the easy things first.

Check the power cord to make sure it is not cut or broken.

If the spark came from the inside then first remove each of the brush caps on the side of the motor and look inside and examine the brushes and the holders.

If they check ok then it could be the switch that is bad and you will have to split the case in order to check the switch contacts.

If this unit is under warranty I would suggest that you take it to the local service repair.

If it is not under warranty I would suggest that you split the case by removing the two handle half’s and this will get you to the switch and the area of the brushes and rotor.

I have included a part breakdown below.

I hope this will help.

Thank you for using Manage My Life.
