Funny. Can't possibly be real. Why would you record yourself doing that. Still funny.
 
2014-05-09 10:55:30 AM  
That's what happens when you cheap out and don't spend the extra bucks for one with electronic ignition.
 
2014-05-09 11:07:49 AM  
The blinker fluid reservoir is obviously empty.
 
2014-05-09 11:08:34 AM  
He flooded it.  Let it sit a while and try again.

You have to use the choke when you are starting up cold like that. Also check that the "Run/Stop" switch is in the "Run" position.

It sucks.

At least it used to.

Also have to prime it. Push that plastic dome shaped button about 3 times.

I'm thinking he should clean out the carburetor and try again in a couple minutes.

SmackLT: I'm thinking he should clean out the carburetor and try again in a couple minutes.


Spray an entire can of starting ether down the hose, and then flick in a match to help prime the turbine.

What could possibly go wrong?

Stale gas. Needs moar STA-BIL

His wife died first.

I can't believe I'm going to be "that poster".


I didn't find that remotely funny.

*sigh*,  I'll drum myself out of the thread now.

Dude, too soon...
 
2014-05-09 01:29:14 PM  
He needs vacuum fluid.
 
2014-05-09 01:38:36 PM  
Did you try turning it off and on again?

He needs to use the choke.
 
2014-05-09 01:49:46 PM  
Id say take a bit of sandpaper to the spark plug tip. It's probably gunked up. While you have it out, verify it's gapped correctly.

2014-05-09 01:53:27 PM  
He might need a new spark plug.
 
2014-05-09 01:54:23 PM  
probably used the wrong gas-to-oil ratio. i'd suggest 40:1 for that model of vacuum.
 
2014-05-09 01:57:54 PM  
He just needs to blow on it, then try again.

It worked for the old Nintendo cartridges.
 
2014-05-09 02:03:50 PM  
comments here are funnier than the vid.
Thank you farkers.

That's why I only buy 4-cycle vacuums. Fark that mixing stuff.
 
2014-05-09 02:06:29 PM  
Dude, it out of gas. I did that like 20 times before I realized it's out of gas.

Oh and this
 
2014-05-09 02:14:50 PM  
Needs more lectric.
 
2014-05-09 02:22:19 PM  
Run across some shag carpet and jump start it that way.

I need something like that to pick up pecans in my backyard.  I've got about 13 producing trees and bending over to pick those nuts up one by one is... nuts.
 
2014-05-09 02:39:19 PM  
I had an outboard like that, he needs to clean out the carb jets and run at least 89 octane through it. There's probably water in the fuel ...

Isn't vacuum cleaner operating a chromosomal thing like sandwich making, or beer fetching?

Some of the YouTube comments are saying this was created by Swedes to contribute to the Dumb Norwegian stereotype. However there is an earlier Latvian copy:

May 7, 2014 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dbL2fiza2N0  C'mon, staarrrtt!

I don't know if this was created as a Latvian conspiracy, or the poster got the vid from somewhere else.

Should probably reboot the router and try again.

Well, far-far is speaking Swedish, so there is that.

Should've put Seafoam in the gas before he put it away for the winter.

Either the muffler bearings are bad or it needs a new conigler pin.

That is amazing...are you a wiz...well, okay, I guess we know the answer to that.

He's doing it wrong.  He should use a forescent skor motion. It may also be employed in conjunction with a drawn reciprocation dingle arm, to reduce sinusoidal repleneration.

so I showed this to my resident domestic goddess and asked her to tell me why the old gentleman couldn't get his vacuum started.  before looking she said "it's unplugged".  when I started the video she exclaimed, "oh, it's gas!".
