ICE AUGER PROBLEMS

6 posts in this topic

hey guys i sure am glad i found this site last year. i have problems with my strikemaster lazer 8" auger. its brand new this year never even used until tonight i put gas in it in the garage and tried and tried but it won't kick over. this is the model with the red switch on the throttle lever. now im pretty mechanically inclined so i pulled the black wire which im assuming is the ground. this wire is right next to the red switch. now i pull it over and the auger runs like a champ. i am looking for someone who has had the same problem and fixed it. i assume it's something with the ground and the switch not how did you guys fix it help guys its friday and i wanted to try this brand new auger out thanks

I guess you could test the switch, might be grounding out all the time. Faulty or just a sloppy connection that was grounding out.

I've heard some have had issues with the switch. It sounds like that's the issue in your case as well. Depending on where you're located, you could stop in at Strikemaster or D-Rock and have them take a look at it since it's new. I don't use the switch on mine and always turn it off using the yellow compression button, so if it were me and I were having the issue I'd probably just disconnect the switch as you did so that it will start.

It should still be under warranty, so I would just bring it in.

    • And that's the key...it takes a guy or two to step back from the max deal and take a pay cut to keep this type of talent together. In the NFL, the Patriots are a dynasty because Tom Brady is smart enough to take far less than he'd command on the open mark to stay put with a great coach and build weapons around him...he values rings (aka, his legacy) more than a few more dollars. If GS can do that, they will be relevant for a very long time.
    • nope it didnt!!!!!!!!!
    • IDK, people pick apart the Hanzal/White trade as a mistake, but I don't. I think it was totally worth the shot to make a solid push. Going in everyone who did any analysis knew the first round was going to be full of 2nd round talent so losing a 1st rounder this year wasn't giving up much. I also don't think Fletch should make a trade for the sake of making a trade either. That is a desperation move and not one fueled by focusing on getting the team better. I would be shocked if someone like Scandella isn't moved in order to make room from Granlund, Nino, etc. We are really tight now with the guys we want to keep and have a few holes to fill beyond that so something has to give.
    • Garretson Food Center..... $1.69/ pound You are exactly right.... And if you vacuum seal it with some of the drippings, this winter it will taste like it was fresh off the smoker!
    • The truth comes out!
    • Hey @rl_sd who had the meat on sale? Looks great btw
    • chicks maybe exploring what the beak is for
    •   You can also be a little creative with the leftover meat.  For example: The wife and I will whip up a spanish rice mixed in with the pork and make Enchiladas or heat the pork on the stove top, mix in some BBQ sauce and make quesadillas (the grandkids love them).   There's more to pulled pork than sandwiches.
