Jiffy auger problem


Gadgetman

Question

My older Jiffy model 30 has been working fine all year, never had any troubles in the past either. However, lately it starts right off but when i get about 6" into the ice it bogs down like its not getting enough gas and kills. I can get it to run if I leave the choke on full, but obviously that isnt right. I would like to remedy this situation before it leaves me on the lake with no way to drill a hole. It has fresh gas in it and I always run seafoam in all my small engines. Ideas anyone?

Sounds like you are drawing air in somewhere. Check the tightness of the bolts holding the carb to the engine. If they are tight, try running it and spraying a little carb cleaner around where the gasket mates the carb to engine to see if it is drawing in air (the rpm's should spike). Check to see if the vacuum line from the engine to the carb isn't cracked or loose. These are some simple tests that I would try first. Let us know what happens wink.gif.

      You can still fish Mille Lacs during the closure from July 1-15.  You just can't specifically target a walleye or use live bait.  There's plenty of smallmouth bass and pike in the lake that you can target with artificial lures and you might get lucky with a muskie.   The wind can be an issue out there though.  If that doesn't sound appealing to you, try the Rum River.  There is an access in Kathio State Park that would work well for a kayak.  You could go upstream and downstream from there too.   I think you will need to purchase a daily pass to use that access in the park (it might be like 5 bucks).  I haven't fished there in years but I fish the Rum River further downstream every season and the fishing in there is fantastic during midsummer.  Look for current breaks, seams, and deeper holes.

      Sorry I didn't see your post earlier. Glad your place was ok. Lake Country power said they had 20 poles toppled in one area!

      You still have your trailer and place up there? Maybe you should do some summer rentals of it to help pay the taxes and up keep on it? 👍

      The water is starting to slowly go down. From what I can tell it looks like it’s down about 5-6 inches. The wind was terrible over the weekend though. I’m sure many properties suffered damages with Sundays winds. Things are finally starting to head in the right direction but it’s going to take a very long time for things to get back to even somewhat normal.

      Stopped at VC last week as well.  Didn't have pizza, but the sandwiches and appetizers we had were good.  The service was very good.  However, that's the first and only time we had been there.

      Any other info about VC?   Got kid and and fam coming up.  Been a couple years but really liked it.   Reviews on line still good.   Did Mark just hit on a bad night or has it gone down?   Being on west not a place we go often.
