Experienced gardeners share their insights in answering this question :
You ask is it possible? Yes, it is and if so this is not uncommon. Check the voltage at the outlet on the generator with a volt meter while the generator is under a load. Once you apply a load to the outlet the voltage will drop. Most appliances can handle slightly more than 120 volts with no problems. If you read close to 120 volts with it under load then all is well. If it is more than 123 volts then you need to have the speed adjusted. You can do it by adjusting the governor spring, but this is best left to a professional. Won’t cost much and may prevent damage to some appliances.

## How to Identify and Fix Common Gardening Problems ?

We provide a variety of viewpoints on how to identify and fix common gardening problems. Our sources include academic articles, blog posts, and personal essays from experienced gardeners :

In commercial or industrial settings, 130 or 135 volts is normal. The power company can use the transformer taps on the feed to adjust the voltage for the user. If your supply voltage is high and you still use incandescent lamps,m switch to 130 Volt bulbs like are used in traffic lights and tower lights.
Voltage that is too high can cause premature failure of electrical and electronic components (e.g. circuit boards) due to overheating. The damage caused by overheating is cumulative and irreversible.
Decrease the reactive power flow through the network due to the load. Achieved through the use of a Static Var Compensator (SVC) which helps reduce voltage fluctuations.
As a rough rule of thumb, more than fifty volts is sufficient to drive a potentially lethal current through the body. Other factors that can determine the severity of an electric shock include the duration of the shock and where the shock enters the body.
The National Electrical Code allows up to a 5% drop. There can be a <3% drop in a feeder and an additional <3% drop in individual branch circuits. Utilities actively regulate distribution voltages slowly by means of tap changing regulators and by switching capacitors to follow changes in load.
By increasing the speed of rotation. By decreasing the number of turns in the coil.
The generator output voltage is set at the factory, but can be altered by careful adjustment of the VOLTS control on the AVR board, or by the external hand trimmer if fitted.
By installing a voltage regulator – often directly after the main switch – the voltage can be reduced by a maximum of 20 Volts. The voltage regulator then stabilizes the voltage at the level at which electrical equipment can operate most efficiently: between 215 and 225 Volts.
Fuses and circuit breakers open or break the circuit automatically when too much current flows through them. When that happens, fuses melt and circuit breakers trip the circuit open. Fuses and circuit breakers are designed to protect conductors and equipment.
According to AMD Ryzen CPUs are safe at 1.35V with regular cooling and could work up to 1.4V with decent cooler. Or even 1.45V which is “sustainable” voltage and requires pro cooling – water cooling. Is undervolting my laptop`s CPU safe? Undervolting your CPU is completely safe.
If the voltmeter reads between 14-15 volts then the battery is normal. But if the battery reads over 15 volts or less than 13 volts, then there might be a problem with the alternator. The alternator is over charging the battery or not giving enough charge to the battery.

Was advised to put an 8 volt battery in my 6 volt 600, peppped up the starter; worked fine. now generator not working. can a 6 volt generator charge an 8 volt battery? did it for 2 years without problems – but wondering??
ANSWER : It won’t charge it fully. When you put an eight-volt battery in a six-volt machine you want to adjust the voltage generator to charge at about 9.5 volts. 9.9 will be the outgassing point for an eight-volt battery, if you keep it between the two points I specify you’ll be happy.If you need help with the regulator give me a write back with the ‘comments’ button and we’ll go through the process.lp

1 Solution for ”B320 leaf Blower starts idles fine but when you move lever to full throttle it bogs like a sick cat I have cleaned and completly rebuilt the carbB320 and it still does the same exact thing The carb might as well have no carb adjustement screw for it does not make any difference where it is turned for it makes no change In fact the screw will only turn a part of a turn it could not be removed to clean it out for some reason it will only move a little Has anybody else had similar problems with these Walbro carbs And by the way is there a adjusting tool out there that might work better than a ground down 3/16 nut driver for it has limited sp”
ANSWER : That adjustment is a cap the real screw is under that cap/1/4 turn thing.u need to pop it off or drill it out to get to the real screw. its a safety thing so as not to run it to lean and burn up the motor. lean it out a little at a time, i mean a little like 1/16 of a turn, test and adjust again if needed.

Couple of guys tried to help me on this, perhaps you guys could come back. I forgot to mention there is a pressure tank bladder type on the discharge side. Could the air in this tank be messing with the prime. I checked the intake. It has water in it after bleeding air from the discharge system where before it was dry before purging air. I think there is air in the system and wonder if it is coming from the pressure tank?. i open up one of the discharge valves and a lot of air comes out. Should I put a valve on the pressure tank to take it off line until I get water from the well?

Mar 12, 2010 – Could it be the check valve? I took it off and the flap appears to be working correctly. This well has been here a long time. Never given me any problems. I do have galvenized couplers on the discharge and intake sides. Old. Could these be leaking even though they show no sign of water? The discharge is able to hold 30 pounds easily overnight. I do not hear any vacuum in the intake when I take it off. Could the pipe to the well have a leak? I know I would have to insert a sleeve but I do not want to go through the hassle if I do not have to. I had put on a brand new pump from the hardware store that did the same thing so I think that would elliminate the pump as being the problem.
I disconnected it for the winter and rehooked it up. The galvanized couplers on the discharge and pump side are old but do not appear to be leakeing as I taped them well. The check valve seems to be functioning well as I took it off and the flap works correctly. The well is not pulling water. there does not appear to be a vacuum on the check vale when I losen it. could the check valve be bad? I am aware I might have to resleeve the well, but do not want to hassle with this if I do not have to. I want to eliminate everything else first. i put another brand new pump on it to see if it was that. That partiuclar pump which was the same thng did not work either.
I took the pump nose off and looked at it. The one way valve appears to be working fine. The impeller is working fine also evidenced by when I turn it on witht the discharge cap off, water shoots out. When I open one of the discharge valves and turn it on, the pressure drops to 10lbs. At this point the prime water has moved through the pipe and and the pump does not soound like it has any water in it. I pull the cap off and have to “reprime it again.” It again goes back to the pressure gauage rapidly fluctuating while pump on. I disconnect pump on intake side I hear no vacuum. The guage is on the discharge side. The seals on the pump nose do not look frayed or damaged. The pump is not leaking water in any of the joints. The pipes on discharge and well side do not appear to be leaking.

ANSWER : My friend, please boil your question down. Your title has to do with riding mowers but the leaking, bladder, impeller, air bubbles, pressure tank, check valve comments seem to be migrating toward a pump of some kind – well? spa? pool? irrigation?

Briefly, any system that involves a water source, a water moving device, water storage device and ultimate useage is subject to leaks … into the system and out of the system. If this is a well and you have air in your system, your pump may be sucking air at the well or any loose connection between the tip of the pipe and the inlet to the pump. Your bladder could have failed but from what I can get from your comments, this is not the case. On the pressure side, neither air nor water will leak in … only out.

Please recheck all connections. Make sure your check valve is installed correctly and not leaking. The check valve assists the foot valve, which may have failed.

I am more inclined to think your well may be at the end of its useful life. To prove or disprove, you could have a plumber put a vacuum gage on your pump. He or she can answer this question is about 90 seconds based on this test. Expect to pay for one hour of time, which will be less than the time you have already invested in your project.

I bought a new echp pb-251 blower last year. towards the end of last season the blower seemed to run sluggish. I attributed it to the cold weather and stored it properly with fuel stabilizer. Now here in Texas our lawn equiptment really doesnt stay put up for very long, and i use my leaf blower to round up my leaves during the winter. — Long story short, I had a problem with power and replaced the spark plug and air filter with no good results. I took the blower back to Home Depot and they charged me to have someone look at it. It was returned running fine with “carbureator adjustment screw out of adjustment as the Problem found”. Now it is two weeks later and after only using the blower one time i am having the same problem again. it starts and runs but has no power when you pull the trigger. Where is the adjustment screw on the pb-251 so that i do not have to turn it in to get charged for something that should work again. Echo I love your products I have bought three weedeaters from you and three blowers ….very dissapointed in this one.
ANSWER : Hi, there is a wire screen in the exhaust outlet that blocks up with carbon deposits. It can be removed and cleaned with a wire brush. If blocked it will give you the problem you have and also make the blower quieter than it should be. Regards Phil.

My Echo Blower Model 251 has given me problems ever since I bought it little over a year ago. It would not get full RPM’s so returned it after reading the adjustments are set for 1100 ft. elevation and I live at 2000 ft. This helped some but now I am back to the same problem. I can find no adjustments for the carb. and am tired of having to return it every time this happen. Any suggestions?
