I have a proform 550e, starts up fine runs well for a few minutes, then belt stops. Motor keeps running. I step off the belt, belt starts to run again.

Why does the unit keep on switching off after running for 2 minutes


Do not know what brand or model your aircon unit is? Sounds as if the temperature you want your unit to run at has already been reached. You need to follow these steps:
- select the temperature you want
- select the icicle icon for cool or thermometer icon for hot.
- select "auto" for your unit to cut in, or to cut off to keep your desired room temp.
For example - hot day 26 degrees and you want the temp in the room to drop to 19 degrees - the unit will shut off once it reaches 19 degrees if it is set to "Auto". Hope this gives you some clues to get it working. Please tick my this helped me box if my tips work. Good luck Gerri.

It will crank and run good for 10 minutes and shut off. Once it shuts off when you restart it, it will only run for a couple of minutes and shut off again ?


I would start by getting a can of carburetor cleaner and have it 'at the ready' and try the 'start, run stall, start run stall' operation again. Only THIS time, once the engine begins to stall, give it a couple of quick shots of the cleaner into the air filter to see if it stays running on the cleaner.

If it does, then it's still a fuel problem. If it doesn't, then it probably an ignition problem. I would be sort of leaning towards the ignition coil getting weak. The reason I'm saying that is your statement about it running (I'm assuming cold start) for at first, 10 minutes then it stalls. Start it again and it runs for a couple of minutes and stalls again.

This could possibly be from the coil getting warm/hot and not producing the needed spark. After a 10 minute run it simply gets too hot and stalls the engine. After the next restart, the coil is already warm from the engine and so it don't take as long for the coil to get hot and stall the engine again.

Hope this makes sense and helps you out.

I have a 2004 polaris sportsman 500 when it gets hot it cuts off and back fires


Does the cooling fan ever run when the engine is hot? If not, you may have a problem with the fan thermostat.

For the record, spray carburetor cleaner does no good if it's sprayed on the outside of the carburetor with the engine running. That's not what it's for.

Chainsaw runs 1 minute then suddenly stops. Won't restart until cooled down. Cleaned carb & fuel pick-up also changed plug.


A number of reasons for this, poor quaility fuel causing vapour lock, over heating due to starter cover vents blocked,cylinder fins clogged, running too lean on the carb mixture settings, fuel tank breather clogged ( slacken off fuel cap when it starts to die, if it picks up again, replace tank breather, or ignition unit breaking down when hot ( only cure is to replace the unit )

Sounds as if your motor is defective. It has an internal thermal switch which cuts the motor off before it gets too hot. After it cools, the switch makes up and the unit is able to run again.

The unit is most likely getting too hot. Check your speaker cables for frayed wires that may be touching each other. The amp will continue to work, but work much harder into a lower impedence load. Over time this will damage the amp. If the cables are OK, try running the amp with the speaker wires disconnected. If the unit still behaves the same way, there is a problem internally with the output section that should be corrected ASAP.
