Question and Answers

Q:

Weedeater PE 550 gear/clutch problem?

A:

Thank you for your question.

I am sorry you are having a problem with the edger. I have looked up the model number you have submitted. If you are not sure the cause of the problem I recommend taking the gearbox apart first. If the gears are broken, you can replace just the gears instead of the complete assembly. If the gears look ok, I recommend replacing the clutch. If you take your time and lay everything out as you disassemble it, you should be ok doing the repair yourself. I recommend taking pictures as you take it apart. These will help later when you put it together.

Q:

kenmore ultrasoft 150 water softner,

A:

Carol,

The water softener should have about two inches of water in the bottom of the salt tank. If there is more than that in the salt tank, I recommend cleaning the nozzle venturi first. I posted an image below that shows how to clean the nozzle venturi. Then remove the cover of the brine well on the right side of the salt tank. You need to be sure the float assembly is pushed down to the bottom of the brine well. If it is not, the water will be higher than normal. After it is clean, it could take a few cycles for the water level to get back to normal.

I hope this is helpful. Please let me know if you need further assistance.

Thank you for using Manage My Life!

Q:

Gas Edger does not start - Weed Eater PE 550 type 3

A:

I am sorry you are having a problem with the edger. You indicated that you replaced the fuel lines. I assume that you replaced the fuel pick-up/filter inside the tank. Make sure that you have the proper mix of fresh fuel/oil in the tank. Make sure that you have enough fuel/oil mix in the tank and that the pick-up/filter is submerged in the fuel.

 

The engine needs three things to run. They are fuel, compression and spark. Let’s check for those first. Try to start the engine as you normally do. After you pull the rope, a few times remove the spark plug. The end of it should be wet if it is getting fuel. If not, then you probably have a fuel line problem since you just replaced the carburetor.

 

If the spark plug is wet after try to start the engine, I recommend checking for spark. Allow the spark plug to dry before testing the spark. Conduct that test away from the cylinder. I found a video that will aid in checking for spark. Here  is the video. That video shows a chain saw but the process will be the same for your edger. If you are not getting spark then you may have a bad spark plug or a failed ignition module.

 

If you have spark I recommend checking for compression. To do this you need a compression gauge. You should be able to loan one from Auto zone. They have a loan a tool program. Once you have the gauge installed pull the rope a few times fast. You should have a reading of at least 90 psi. If you do not have this reading there is a problem in the cylinder. This type of repair usually exceeds the valve of the unit.

 

You can order parts from this page: Weed Eater Gas Edger Model PE 550 Type 3 Repair Parts.  

 

If you need more help, reply with additional details and we will assist you further.

 

If you get to the point where you need to have a service technician examine and repair the edger, you can carry it into your nearest Sears Store or Sears Repair Center. Here is a link that provides more information about locations and repair service: Sears Yard Tool Repair Service.

If you are missing a screw on that carburetor, that could be causing your problem.

A:

Your details indicate that you are not getting fuel to the cylinder. The problem with the loose fastener on the carburetor and the cylinder assembly. The system is probably not able to pull a vacuum and suck gas into the cylinder due to those leaks. I recommend that you resolve those issues and then see if you are getting gas into the cylinder.
