Why would my bike that's a Kawasaki zx10 backfire? Is it because of my carburetors and what would the settings be? please help


Hi, Francois and the usual suspects are:
1. A severely drained battery.
2. Check battery terminals for damage or corrosion, check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary.
3. Faulty main circuit breaker and or connections.
4. Faulty ignition coil and or connections.
5. Faulty spark plug, oil or gas fouled, wrong heat range or service type, wrong gap, loose in the cylinder head, broken electrode or insulator.
6. Faulty spark plug cables, leaking or broken, internal damage.
7. Faulty ignition module, switch, CKP, MAP, CMP, sensor and or any connector in the ignition circuit could have corroded, loose, or broken pins/sockets
8. Burnt exhaust valve or air leak in the exhaust system.

How to Crimping Network Cables


Tools and Materials You Will Need
Crimper with RJ-45 die.
Wire stripper
Wire cutter
RJ-45 plugs
Cat-5 UTP cable
Optional Tools
Wire Tester
Procedure
1. Strip off insulation
2. Untangle wires
3. Place wires in correct order &
straighten.
4. Trim wires to desired length.
Note:
If the wires are too long the plug will not
crimp onto the insulation for strength.
5. Slide wires all the way into the plug.
Make sure not to disrupt the color
scheme.
6. Crimp plug.
7. Repeat steps 1-6 for the other end.
8. Test wire using optional test equipment
or between working computer and hub
for patch (straight through) cables ,or
between switches for crossover cables.

Won't start weak spark


Hi Karl
Faulty Magneto coil or points or condenser (capacitor) or HV Wire if it uses carbon instead of wire. (This is for radio suppression)
Carbon resistor inside spark plug? Use another Spark Plug.
Rule of thumb is 25 tho contact Gap - thickness of standard hacksaw blade.
Use cheap Neon light tester close to HV Silicon Insulation & compare brightness to e.g. car HV cable.

Indesit wib101


THE COPPER CORE OF THE MAINS FLEX/CABLE IS LIKELY SNAPPED INSIDE THE INSULATION (USUALLY NEXT TO THE PLUG (IF YOU'RE LUCKY) OR NEXT TO THE MACHINE AS THESE ARE THE 2 BITS THAT MOVE/FLEX MOST). TEST THE CABLE (ALL 3 EARTH LIVE & NEUTRAL) WITH A CIRCUIT TESTER. IF BROKEN BEST TO REPLACE THE WHOLE CABLE BUT IF YOU CAN IDENTIFY THE BREAK YOU CAN CUT OFF A SECTION AND REFIT THE PLUG.

Wiring 12/2 or 12/3


12/2 cable (Romex, UF, etc) consists of two insulated #12 and one uninsulated #12 conductor or wire. The two insulated wires have a black and a white colored insulation. Number 12 copper is rated for 20 amps. This cable can carry a single circuit with ground.

12/3 cable is identical to 12/2 with the exception being that it has a third insulated conductor that is colored red. This third wire allows one cable to supply 2 circuits (one on black and one on red with both sharing the white and ground wires) with one cable run. It is much cheaper to buy and install a single 12/3 cable than two 12/2 cables to get two circuits into the same general area.

Twenty amp 120 volt circuits in dwelling units are required for kitchens, dining rooms, washers, disposals, and other appliances that require more than 12 amps (but less than 16 amps) to operate. Twenty amp 240 volt circuits are typically for specialty appliances and devices such as electric heaters, pumps, etc. Generally, 20A/240V appliances devices do not need a 12/3 cable as they only require connections for Line1, Line2 and ground. One insulated conductor would be unused in a 12/3 cable serving such a device. A 12/2 cable is run instead and the white wire is taped red (any color other than gray or green, to indicated that it is no longer a neutral) at each location it is accessible, such as wiring compartments, panels and junction boxes.

Circuits fed by 12/2 cables will connect to single pole circuit breakers and those fed by 12/3 cables must be connected to double pole circuit breakers. Check the National Electrical Code (NEC) to determine which locations require GFCI (Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter) supplied circuits. The latest (2012) NEC requires most new circuits in dwelling units (residential) to be protected by AFCI (Arc Fault Circuit Interrupter) type circuit breakers. Consult your local building department to find out if the NEC has been adopted in your locality before installing.

Lastly, a 12/3 cable would be run between 3 way & 4 way light switches and hard wired smoke detectors; but only if they are on a 20 amp circuit. Most circuits in the home are 15 amp capacity, especially for lighting circuits. A 14/3 cable would be run on these circuits as there is no need for the additional expense of a cable with the larger #12 wires and the increased labor to handle, install and connect the wires to device terminals.

I hope this helps. Please rate my reply - thanks!

AO Smith SQ1102 pump motor: how do I wire this thing? How do I know if I set it to 115 or 230? I justed popped my 20 amp fuse.


On your motor name plate there is a diagram with motor terminal numbers that shows you the feeder wires connections for 115 & 230VAC. You don't need to change any internal motor wiring connections because those are only CW or CCW motor rotation. As you told it tripped your circuit breaker, b4 u will attemp to make any connection you need to test your motor's winding insulation insulation first by using megger tester or ordinary analog tester clipping one lead to the casing and one lead to the motor terminals one by one.

We are trying to make a thermostat that needs to have heat kept inside of it aka we have to beat the boys at this its a competition


Lol,cheater cheater.
To build this circuit without a board(I am assuming you don't have one) will be somewhat difficult.The container you put it in will probably have to be a little bigger than an ordinary thermostat too.You will need more electrical measuring equpment than what you have listed.What you need is a multimeter.If you don't have experience with a multimeter,you better get one with instructions.If you want to go further let me know and I will do my best to describe how to make the circuit.I will check often tomorrow.Also,will this be running on power from the wall or a battery?It makes a difference.

I want to tow the jeep and need to know thecorrect


Review this information and links:
- Trailer 4 Way System Diagram
- Accesories and Instructions

d456d39.jpg

Instructions
1.) Determine a suitable location for mounting the circuit protected converter in an out of the way spot near the left tail lights in the trunk or on the frame rail, if mounted under the towing vehicle.
2.) Ground the white ground wire by placing the ring terminal under an existing screw attached to a clean metal surface or by drilling another 3/32" hole and using one of the self tapping screws provided.
3.) Disconnect the tow vehicle's negative (-) battery cable.
4.) Cut the in-line fuse holder loop wiring.
5.) Using a ring terminal (3/8 inch for top terminal or 1/2 inch for side terminal), attach an in-line fuse holder (with fuse removed) to the positive (+) terminal of the battery.
6.) Route black 12 gauge wire from the fuse holder to the converter passing under or through the vehicle.
Note: When passing the wire through sheet metal always go through an existing grommet, add a grommet or use silicone rubber to insulate the wire from the hole.
7.) Attach 12 gauge wire to the fuse holder with the yellow **** connector.
8.) Reconnect the tow vehicle (-) negative battery cable. Note: See tow vehicle owners manual for any special battery reconnection and instructions.
9.) Determine if the towing vehicle has a 2 wire or 3 wire system.

2 Wire System
  • Has same bulb for stop and turn signals.
  • Some vehicles have a separate bulb for stoplights but also have a combination bulb for turn and stop. These cars should be wired as 2 wire systems, using the wires going to the common bulbs.
  • Note: Attach the crimp on spade terminal provided to the red stop wire and ground it along with the white wire.

3 Wire System
  • Has amber turn signals, separate.
  • Has separate bulbs for stop and turn signals (both red).
  • Note: Attach red wire to tow vehicles brake light circuit.
10.) Using a circuit tester or volt ohm meter (VOM), determine which wire attached to the left taillight assembly is the left turn wire. Attach the units yellow left turn wire to this wire using one of the blue wire taps provided. Determine which wire is the taillight circuit and attach the module's brown tail / license wire to it with a wire tap. Determine which wire is the stop circuit and attach the module's red stop wire to it with a wire tap (for 3 wire systems only, see step 9).
11.) Route the units green right turn wire to the right side of the vehicle. Determine which wire is the right turn circuit and attach the green wire to it with a wire tap.
12.) Install the fuse into fuse holder and test the installation with a circuit light or trailer.
13.) Secure all loose wiring with cable ties.

Testing Procedure
With the ground wire connected and all of the other circuits attached, attach the ground lead of a circuit tester to the exposed ground terminal of the 4-flat end. Activate the tow vehicle left turn, right turn, tail and stop lights one at a time. Probe the three receptacles of the 4-flat end to confirm proper functions. If testing with a trailer, make the proper connections and do the same test as the circuit tester using the trailer lights. If a function on the trailer lights does not work properly, disconnect the trailer lights, turn functions on vehicle off and recheck function with the unit with a circuit tester. Then check the trailer wiring for potential circuit problems.

I hope help you with this (remember rated this help).

Good luck.
