The engine starts cold after 2 or three pulls, runs ok initially, but seems to have slightly less power. After a few minutes I can turn off the choke. When teh engine warms up and runs for about 15 minutes, there is a definite power decrease and the motor sounds like it will stall. If I paly with the choke, it does not stall, but has little power to pump water. If the engine does stall or it is turned off, it will not restart until it cools down.


I would first try draining the carb bowl, if you look at where the choke lever is and look below that you should see a clear red tube with a flat head screw below that, if you just turn the screw out the carb will drain. If you still have an issue yo ... Karcher G3025OH Pressure Washer

Hello, I would appreciate if you have any suggestions regarding my GE dishwasher. It turns on and seems to want to work but the rinse cycle does not produce any water, it makes noises like the water is coming out and rinsing but when I open the dishwasher the dishes are not wet. I've checked the water valve, turned the control panel off and on, I'm wondering if it is just clogged, any suggestions? Thank you.

GE GSD4920Z dishwasher. Problem is that it does not drain completely at the end of the cycle--about an inch of water remains. After checking for clogs, etc, we followed a troubleshooting procedure which involves a hard reset (power off, then reset twice at beginning of cycle) and this procedure successfully drains the tub. However the next time that it's used on a normal cycle, water remains again. Suggestions?
