6 Simple Weekend Repairs
If you’ve worked hard all week the last thing you want to worry about is fixing things around the home, but yard work needs to be done, and those items on your to-do list aren’t going to fix themselves. Here are a few easy repairs to quickly check off your list, and get you back to what’s important in life, spending time with your family.
Lawn & Garden Equipment
Mower running rough or hard to start?
Change the air filter. A dirty air filter will cause your mower not to start
Remove the old gas. If the gas has been sitting in the mower for too long you may have old gasoline causing the fuel line to clog. Empty out the old gas and add new gasoline and a fuel stabilizer.
Lawn Mower Bags
String Trimmer Line Won’t Feed?
Remove the trimmer head and clean it, if it is worn out, it will need to be replaced.
The trimmer line could also be the wrong size or the trimmer housing may be cracked or broken.
Leaf Blower Won’t Start
The easiest and most common repair on a leaf blower is the spark plug. If there is any damage or wear on the porcelain insulator you will need to replace the spark plug. If there is not visible damage use a spark plug tester to check if the spark plug is defective.

Oven Not Baking Evenly?
Replace the bake element.
The oven will only be bake properly if the bake element is fully
functioning. If the bake element is damaged the oven will either not start
or not fully heat.
Fridge Ice Maker Not Working?
The water inlet valve controls the flow of the water to and from the ice maker. Test the power to the valve with a multi-meter, if the valve is getting sufficient water pressure but no power, replace the water inlet valve. If the water inlet valve is working properly, some component of the
ice maker assembly may be defective. You will need to replace the entire ice maker assembly.
