Having problems with your McCulloch MC1275 Steam Vacuum ?

I have a McCulloch Model PM 310 , Gas Chainsaw. How would the spark plug be accessed?....Rich

Answers :

\015\012Storing a chain saw for longer than 30 days requires storage maintenance. Unless the storage instructions are followed, fuel remaining in the carburetor will evaporate, leaving gum-like deposits. This could lead to difficult starting and result in costly repairs. Never store a chain saw for longer than 30 days without performing the following procedures:
\015\012Remove the fuel tank cap slowly to release any pressure in tank. Carefullydrain the fuel tank.Start the engine and let it run until the unit stops to remove fuel from carburetor. Allow the engine to cool (approximately 5 minutes).
\015\012Using a spark plug wrench, remove the spark plug.
\015\012Pour 1 teaspoon of clean 2-cycle oil into the combustion chamber. Pull starter rope slowly several times to coat internal components. Replace spark plug.
\015\012Store the unit in a dry place and away from possible sources of ignition such as a furnace, gas hot water heater, gas dryer,etc. When removing the unit from storage, be sure to perform the following procedures:Remove spark plug. Pull starter rope briskly to clear excess oil from combustion chamber.Clean and gap spark plug or install a new spark plug with proper gap.Prepare unit for operation.Fill fuel tank with proper fuel/oil mixture.

My sunbeam water cooler model #YLR2-5-67H3 has been sitting unplugged for 3 years. I moved, plugged it in and put a water bottle on top and water went all over the floor. I unplugged it, (read the instructions on the front, duh) and it still leaks on the floor. What should I do? I put it over the sink, emptied it, checked the drain plug, tried running a glass full of tap water through each tap. Only the room temperature one would work.

One of the rubber connecting hoses inside it has dried and aged so the pressure of the water from the bottle made it burst.\012\012\012You will need to open it, find the defective hose and replace it - a 2 hour relatively easy job. The hardest ... Sunbeam Vacuums

The last time the vacuum cleaner was used the outlet sparked causing it to smoke when turning on vacuum cleaner. I replaced the outlet and plugged it in and things seemed o.k. Today I turned on the vacuum, it stayed on for a mili second and went off. I checked the switch on the vacuum and it showed voltage coming and going, but would not turn on again. I checked all the wires in the area of the switch all seemed o.k. I thought maybe there might be a short in the cord. When I went to plug

I have an Eureka Express canister vacuum - I believe it's model 8284 - that just stopped working. Plug it in, turn it on, and absolutely nothing happens. I took it to the local sew and vac place and they say it's a circuit board that is no longer available. I've looked at all the parts lists and diagrams for that vacuum and I would swear there isn't a circuit board there. (I wouldn't have even thought that in 1989 they would have used circuits.) In any case, I absolutely love this machine a

I have a Hoover, Steam spin scrub, Model F5897-900. Only used it a couple times and the motor gave out. First started being noisy then a bad smell. It did seem noisier that what I would expect from the start but I didn't realize it was a problem with the shaft of the motor. I took it apart and found the motor shaft wasn't true and causing sparks. The motor looks like it can not be taken apart and repaired.

I have a Craftman 5hp snowthrower model 53688501 that will not start. It will fire with gas down sparkplug hole, but runs only untill that gas is burned up. Fuel is present at carb, but I noticed that there are two brass fittings on each side of the carb for vacume lines or something, and they have no lines connected to them. Did I lose the lines that should be connected? Or do I have some other problem. The unit is 4 years old and has the Briggs and Stratton eng model 9A413-0202-E1

I just bought kaz model K76P (M) humidifier in Kyoto. I filled it to the right water level (a bit below) and plugged it in (nothing else is plugged in at that socket). The light comes on, but the water doesn't heat up. I can't read Japanese so can't read the instruction manual but it seems a simple procedure: fill with water, set the heating thing the water, plug in. Am I missing something or is the humidifier defect?
