So likely you have a 3 wire dryer cord and a 3 wire branch circuit. The dryer neutral is bonded to the dryer frame and the third wire of the dryer plug.

There were code exceptions for dryers and stoves that allowed timer motor circuits to use the neutral as a current carrier and frame ground.

To use the GFCI for the dryer you will be required to add an additional conductor (new 3 wire+ground cable) and separate the neutral to frame bond in the dryer and use a 4 wire dryer cord.

Likely you also have some GFCI single pole breakers and replaced ungrounded receptacles with grounded (another code exception) and they work OK. The dryer and stove are different as there is current on the third wire where as on the ungrounded receptacle GFCI there is no 3rd wire.

In breif, the neutral (current carrier conductor) from the dryer must be isolated from the dryer frame and dryer ground (fault current carrier conductor).

Or just leave it the way it was.

Check with local authority with jurisdiction for local code requirements.

the carb must be clogged then. remove and clean all the passages clean clean clean. use fresh gas and stabiliser always...i suggest seafoam. it works great

Coleman... | Answered on Jun 13, 2020

you have carb passages that are still clogged up. when you do get it all clean and running always use a little seafoam in your fuel. it works very well on small engined units... a few ozs in 5 gallons is plenty and stores very well also.

The 'overcrank' error simply means it tried to start but never actually started. It cranked for an extended period. Check the fuel and starting issues you would normally check to start the engine.

You could always use "Belt Ease" from an Auto Parts store. It's made for squeeky belts.

While mig welding I personally use 10 or 11, but it depends on the individual. You want it dark enough (higher no. darker) to protect your eyes from flash burn but light enough to see the weld. Start at the highest setting and go lighter until you can see good enough. No lighter than necessary. I hope this helps you out.

The generator does not operate in accordance with the specified technical conditions, such as too high stator voltage, iron loss increases; if the load current is too large, the copper loss of the stator winding increases; if the frequency is too low, the cooling fan speed becomes slow, affecting the heat dissipation of generator; the power factor is too low, so that the rotor excitation current increases, resulting in the rotor heating. Check whether the indication of monitoring instrument is normal. If it is abnormal, necessary adjustment and treatment must be carried out to operate the generator in accordance with the specified technical conditions.

Exhaust black smoke
The main causes of exhaust pipe blackening are less air in the cylinder, more fuel, incomplete or untimely combustion of fuel. Therefore, when checking and analyzing faults, look closely around this point to find out reasons. Check cylinder by using the method of oil cut, the first distinction is that the individual cylinder is not working well or all cylinders are not working well. If the black smoke disappears when a cylinder stops working, then the black smoke is caused by the bad work of individual cylinders. The reasons can be found from the bad work of individual cylinders.

The main reasons are:

A. Poor nozzle operation

The injection pressure of the injector is too low, the nozzle drips oil, the spray quality is not good and the oil droplet is too strong, all of which will cause the diesel fuel to burn incompletely. Therefore, in the detection of diesel engine cylinder knocking sound, exhaust sound uneven, that is, fuel injection problems, should be immediately checked and adjusted injection nozzle.

B. The fuel injection pump adjusts the tooth rod or the adjustment rod stroke is too large, resulting in too much fuel supply.

C. Valve clearance does not meet requirements, resulting in insufficient air intake.

D. The contact surface between the plunger sleeve of the injection pump and the valve seat is not sealed, or the locking screw of the regulating ring of the fuel injection pump or the loosening of the plunger adjusting arm cause the imbalance of the fuel supply and lead to intermittent black smoke emission.

Do normal maintenance first, like oil, oil filter and air filter and then let it firts warm up before applying a load.

If the saw is brushless the a Trailing Edge light dimmer is required to avoid hunting.
It is not recommended but wire as you would a light dimmer.
