Honda GC190 no start. Unit has been sitting for 2 years. Drained old gas, cleaned the carb. No go. New plug gapped to 0.030in. Still nothing. spark seems good. Cleaned the fuel strainer and there IS a bit of vacuum at the fuel pump when cranking. Poured a dab of gas into combustion chamber.. Still won't "talk to me" AT ALL. Removed valve cover and checked the valves.. within specs and nothing sticking or hanging up. Timing belt and cam looks good. Took a peak at the coil.. air gap in specs. 1ohm

I have used my Honda Pressure washer 3 times over a period of 1-2 years. I could not get it to start today. I did not drain the old gas but added some new gas (which was probably a few months old). I have never had problems with a lawn mower sitting for a few months; but my guess is, this is the problem? How can I repair this?

Hi, I have an AEG Favorit 525 dishwasher. It's over 20 years old, but has a panel on the front which matches the kitchen and it has done stirling service over the years. Lately, the knob has been sticking a bit mid cycle, but it has been intermittent. Last night, although the dishwasher sounds like it is working properly, it is not filling with water. Motor sounds like it is trying, but to no avail. If it was human, I would say prostate issues, but I don't think dishwashers have those. A

I have an old Bauknecht dishwasher GSF 3160 S that a friend gave us 10 years ago. It was stored for that time, and now if I try to use it, it leaks out through the bottom and floods the kitchen. I would like to know 1) is it worth fixing from the point of view of how energy/water efficient (or inefficient) an old dishwasher is - if you know the specs for this particular machine, and 2) what needs to be changed if it is worthwhile fixing. I don't know what else might not work, because I only pu

Bathtubs was not listed in the "pick an expert" list, so choose dishwashers as closest thing to a bathtub. I have a whirlpool bath tub (don't know the make, but it is only 4 years old) It works fine but have a question - near the top of the bathtub there is a screaw in cap type of thing. It is a disk with a threaded bit on the back. The disk is about 1-1/4 inches in diameter and the threaded bit on the back is about 1/2 inch diameter and 1 inch long.

I have a Kenmore Quietguard dishwasher, only a few years old, and it won't drain. I pulled it out and checked the drain hose, could not find a clog. I took the basket and sprayer out, couldn't find any clogs there. It seems to be making a little bit of a different noise but does still clean the dishes. Does the motor pump the water out and could that be the problem?
