John in NC Posted November 1, 2011 Report Share Posted November 1, 2011 Hi folks, great forum! I bought a used D55152 twin hot-dog Emglo for $120, the cold start valve was missing (bolt threaded in it's place) but it ran good without it so I figured why not. Well I took it home and used it for a couple days, then it cranked up to fill the tank but barely ran/ pumped. Then wouldn't run at all. I'm going to replace the cold start valve, anything else it might be based on the symptoms? Any suggestions on where to buy the parts? It ran strong and held pressure great prior to this happening, then it was barely running and stopped alltogether, not building pressure. I did have it plugged into an extension cord which I've since read isn't the best thing for it, so I sat it in the direct sun (75 degrees out) and plugged it directly into an outlet- I think it tried to run once more but barely, then nothing since? Thanks a bunch for any suggestions/ ideas. John Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
