Q:

McCulloch MAC 160S Chainsaw

A:

Thank you for your question.

 

I am sorry you are having a problem with the chain saw. If the chain will not tighten when you loosen the nuts and turn the adjusting screw, I suspect the adjustment pin on the clutch cover is broken or not positioned in the bar. I found a video that shows how to replace the adjustment pin. The video also shows how the pin should fit into the bar. Click here to watch the video. 

 

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

Q:

wwhirlpool ultimate care II dryer wont start

A:

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

Without having the model number of your Whirlpool dryer I will have to assume the back is not designed to come off. If the lint filter is located on the top of the dryer, it will have a removable back panel. If the lint filter is located inside the dryer at the front lower area of the drum opening, then the front panel must be taken off to access the components. Some models will have a lower front access panel that is designed to come off to access the components.

If you model does not have a front lower access panel, then control panel will need to be placed in the service position in order to access and remove the screws towards the back of the top panel. Once the screws have been removed, slide the top forwards and lift it off. The front panel is fastened to each side panel near the top. Remove the screws and disconnect the door switch harness. Tilt the top of the front panel towards you and then lift it up and off. NOTE: Disconnect the power cord from the power source before servicing.

I added a couple of images below to reference.  I hope this is helpful. If I may be of further assistance as more details become available, please reply to this post along with the model number.

Bill: Your model appears to have a front lower access panel located below the door that will come off to access the components. I added an image below showing how to remove the front access panel.

Bill: If you're certain the push to start switch where the two blue wires measures continuity when pushed and the thermal fuse is measure continuity as well as the door switch (blue and white). Then it could be a timer failure or motor failure. Also, if the belt is broken, the dryer will not start. I added an image below of the wiring diagram if needed. You may want to consider calling a service technician to diagnose and repair your dryer. A voltage measurement will likely have to be made at the motor while the start switch is pushed and held across terminals 4M and 5M. If not voltage is measured, the timer is likely faulty more so than the push to start switch. If you get to the point where you need to have a service technician diagnose and repair this failure, you can schedule service by calling 1-800-4-MY-HOME. NOTE: I do not recommend making any voltage measurements unless you have experience and feel safe and confident in doing so, otherwise I strongly suggest calling for service.

Q:

McCulloch Mac 2816 weed wacker

A:

Thank you for your question.

I am sorry you are having a problem with the trimmer. If you have installed a module and still do not have spark I recommend removing the kill wire and check for spark with a new plug. If you still do not have spark double check the air gap between the module and the magnet on the flywheel. The air gap should be set between .010 to .012. Then check for spark. If there still is no spark, the problem is either a weak flywheel magnet or defective module. If the magnet holds a screwdriver, it should be fine.

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

Thank you for using Manage my life.

Thank you for the reply. If the kill wire is removed from the module, when you are checking for spark it will not matter if it is frayed. You can repair the wire later once you have spark. If the magnet is fine and the air gap is set, you should have spark. If you do not have spark I suspect a defective module. I know it is not likely but everything else is fine. Just make sure you are using a know good plug and it is grounded to a clean ground when checking for spark. I hope this is helpful.

A:

By what you have stated you have done, I suspect the module is defective. If you happen to have the old module, you might want to install it and check for spark with the kill wire disconnected. If you have spark, repair the kill wire. If you do not have spark I recommend replacing the module.

A:

The coil has to be having a good connection to the engine block. This is important for the module to generate the spark. By everything you done so far, I suspect the problem is a defective module. I know it seems unlikely but the checks done point to the module.

A:

We are missing something somewhere. Try to set the air gap at .012. While tightening the screws, make sure the module does not turn away from the flywheel. Then check for spark with out the spark plug. To do this, insert a screwdriver where the spark plug would go. Then hold the shank of the screwdriver about a 1/8 inch or so from the block. While holding the screwdriver in this position, turn the engine over. You should see a spark jump from the shank to the block. If you get spark the plug is causing the problem. Please let me know what you find.
