Question and Answers

Q:

Why won't my Kenmore dryer heat for more than 10 or 15 minutes?

A:

Your symptoms indicate a possible failure in the gas valve coils. If the igniter begins glowing to initiate the next heating cycle, then the thermostats should be working properly.

When the gas valve coils become weak, they usually open the gas valves properly on the first ignition. As they heat up, they may not be strong enough to open the gas valves on subsequent attempts. If these details match you symptoms, then replacing these gas valve coils will likely correct your problem.

Q:

rider is still shutting off after 10 or 15 min of running

A:

Thank you for your question.

I am sorry you are having a problem with the tractor. It is unusual for the tractor to stall after all of those parts have been replaced. The engine needs three things to run. They are fuel, spark, and compression. The tractor is running so I do not think the problem is compression. Next time the engine will not start, go back to the spark plug. Remove the leads, or wires, that connect from the engine to the plug. Remove the plug and put them back in the leads. Now position the leads so the metal end of the plug is against the engine or another clean unpainted metal ground point. Keep your hands away from the plugs so you do not get shocked, and turn the key to the start position. Look for sparks at the ends of the Spark Plug. Look carefully as they might be hard to see in sunlight or other bright lights. If there is spark there then you have ignition, the first of the three basics. If not, you likely have an electrical problem that needs to be traced. The engine should have been spinning over faster once the plug was removed and you should hear air rushing out of the spark plug holes in puffs. You could even try putting a thumb or finger over each plughole to see if the pressure pushes your finger off when turning over, just be careful not to touch the grounded plugs so you do not get shocked. If that all happens then you have the second ingredient, compression. If not then you may need a valve adjustment or may have a broken component inside the engine. That leaves fuel. Check the tips of the plug you just removed, if fuel is reaching the engine there should be some residue there and they should look somewhat wet. If you used your finger to check compression then you may even see some residue on your finger. If there is fuel here, your problem may be old fuel or a timing issue. Try putting a small amount of good fuel into the throat of the carburetor and turn the key to start. If your problem is fuel related only, the engine should now try to start, or even run, until the fuel you put in is gone. That would indicate the fuel supply is being stopped in the fuel tank, fuel line, fuel filter, fuel pump, or carburetor. Some carburetors have a solenoid to stop the fuel supply when the key is off and a malfunction there could also be the problem. I hope this is helpful.

Q:

refrigerator laid down during transit. left upright for 24 hrs without plugging in and told to plug in for 3 min unplug for 10 (5-6 times) correct info?

A:

The refrigerator should be left upright for 24 hours after being laid down for transit. After 24 hours you can plug the refrigerator in and leave it turned on.

When a refrigerator is laid down for transit, some of the oil will run out of the compressor into the evaporator and suction line. Twenty four hours is adequate time for the oil to run back into the compressor.
