Question: Reset Switch

A soon as I start to use the splitter the reset button trips?? What could be causing this????

Hello deesteve1,

After a while the 099077001042 Circuit Breaker, can weaken with use. You may want to replace it with a new one. If that doesn't do the trick it, there may be a short in the system causing this to happen.

Have a Ryobi 49701 electric log splitter. I've used it for years, split a lot of wood with it. Now it won't split wood at all.
It powers on, sounds fine. The ram will engage and contact the wood and at the moment the ram pushes the wood into the wedge, it won't split it. Just contacts the wedge but nothing. It had worked fine moments before that. Any suggestions of what I can do to troubleshoot it?

I have it plugged directly into a 20 amp outlet, no oil leaks that I notice. There is oil in the splitter as I changed it last year. Thanks.

I have tried to locate a suitable wheel that is made of metal other than plastic. Unfortunately the only one that I could find for this machine is the 099077001502 Wheel Assembly.

[QUOTE=foll64;71189]I went to use it and the piston stayed out and won`t come back." when it returns, it takes forever
My Ryobi log splitter still works, but lost the power that it had when new...What are the possible causes?
I removed the control lever guard and then the bolt ( B17 ), but the ram valve assembly won't come out. How can this be removed?
Do I have to insert a rod into the B17 bolt hole and knock it out? I don't want to scratch the bore for the valve assembly.

Question: Ryobi Log Splitter Stalls When S...

knuckledragger

I have a Ryobi RY49701 that is having difficulty splitting logs. The ram will run full cycle when not under load, however it does slow down considerably during the last third of its travel along the rail. When trying to split a log, the ram will hang up on the log and not retract. I've replaced the fluid and swapped out the ram relief valve from an identical log splitter, blown out the ram relief orifice and vent hole with compressed air, and inspected the pump gearing -- all appears fine. Short of replacing the Ram itself (Ryobi's suggestion), does anyone have any ideas?

Question: Ram Won't Retract

Gregpietsch

I recently picked up a used Ryobi 49701. Used it a few weeks ago for a dozen or so logs and worked great. Got it out again recently and after a few splits the ram stopped retracting unless I held the lever down. Then it stopped retracting at all. Does not slide back if I push on it. Does anyone know what might be going on or how to fix it?

Question: Ryobi RY49701 Log Splitter

Georgia_Bill

I am trying to repair a 4 ton Ryobi log Splitter (Model RY49701). The motor hums then circuit breaker pops with no rotation. I have a hydraulic oil leak coming from the motor to pump housing too. I took the motor fan cover off and spun the fan while pushing the start button and the motor ran briefly. So I installed a new capacitor, but it did not help the situation. Now I am rebuilding the pump assembly. Am I on the right path or should I tango uniform this $300 toy?

My first thought when I read about your problem is that your start windings in your motor might be shorted. One way to check is to look at the windings, see if they are darker than the run windings (usually run windings are a larger gauge wire than the starts) also if you can smell the insulation on the windings, that is a good sign that they are burnt. Before you get into to much other work, you might take the motor to a local motor repair shop and have them check it out.

Good luck!

Nope. That's not it at all. I found a puddle of hydraulic oil on the floor yesterday morning and drained it. This morning, I took the hydraulic pump off and found metal shavings logded in the pump (looked like they were from drilled holes). I ran the motor and it fired up perfectly. Went on line and ordered new gaskets, o-rings and new pump parts ($40). I put is all back together and gave it a dry run try and it worked perfectly. I have a leaking o-ring and a bad shaft bushing. It should work fine once I get the new parts and seals.

I recieved my parts from eReplacement quickly and took the pump assembly apart for repair. I also took the rear of the motor off to try and find where the leak was coming from and found a spring gasket that goes around the motor shaft to be the problem. Does anyone know where I can get a replacement seal without buying the whole motor assembly?
WJA
Reply: Ryobi RY49701 Log Splitter

WJA

Looking at the the breakdown I don't see where the manufacture supplies any internal motor parts. As you well know.

See if there are any numbers on the seal & maybe a manufacture name and do a search for that, maybe something will come up.

Good luck,

I have a similiar problem with the motor not running everytime i hit the button. Sometimes it starts and runs fine othertimes it kicks out the resend button. When it wont start I have found that if you spin the fan it will then start and run. I initially thought is was the capacitor but it is my understanding that a capacitor is either good or bad and either works or does nor rather than being sporatic. My next thought would be a dead spot on the motor armature and when it stops at this point it will not restart until you turn the shaft. I got this splitter at a yard sale. It appears that the prior owner had a similiar issue becaus they drilled a hole in the fan cover and welded a bolt on the shaft which allows the shaft to be trurned. How do I fix it right? Can the capacitor be weak or is it the armature. Do not want to buy a capacitor if it does not fix the issue.

What kind of hydraulic oil do I put in, or does it matter?

Hi Ben,

The manual specifies 3.7 quarts of hydraulic oil. It recommends the following brands...

- SHELL Tellus 22
- MOBIL DTE 11
- ARAL Vitam GF 22
- BP Energol HLP-HM 22

I hope this helps!

Remove the lever guard ( two nuts ), end bolt and tap lightly from the end bolt side. You will lose some fluid there too.

Question: Motor

When I press the push button, all I hear is the motor humming until it pops the circuit. Is this repairable?
Pete
Reply: Motor

Take the 3 screws out of the cover, over the motor end that has the fan, and remove the cover. If you can give it a spin, then immediately press the power button and if the motor runs normally, then you have a bad capacitor, which you can get here for around $15.00.

If the motor doesn't turn, remove the fan and use a pipe wrench to turn the shaft. Use a good amount of WD40. The shaft should break free easily. Turn it on and press the button so that the motor starts rotating.

I had that problem.

Question: Ram Shim

I went to split a log and a piece of the log jammed under the ram and pushed out a gray plastic shim. This shim isn't listed in this part list on this site. I can't find it anywhere. The 2 raised tabs that key the shim in are scraped off from being pushed off. Can someone please help me. Thanks.

Sounds like you are pulling a vacuum. Is the vent screw open and is the vent clear? Try pushing a thin wire through the vent to make sure it is clear.

Hi, I have a similar problem, but mine I ran a few logs with the vent closed and now I have to push down on the lever to get it to return. It creaks and takes about 60 seconds to return. Do you have you had any good suggestions or does someone know the reason?

Mine was doing the same thing. I was able to remedy by putting a washer behind the bolt that holds the lever. The plate that triggers the valve had worn and not allowed it to return. By putting a washer on mine it fixed it.

I LOVE THIS UNIT. IT'S PORTABLE AND HAS THE POWER I NEED FOR MED. HEAVY WOOD.
Handy and powerful. Splits the tough ones with no problem. I dislike the need to use both hands to send and keep the ram going forward. A single lever would be much better and allow one hand to act as a guide or safety shield in case of wild wood.

Reply: Ryobi - RY49701 Logsplitter

Chris Arruda

The reason they make it to work with only 2 hands is for safety reasons. This is so one hand will be between the ram and the blade while you are holding down the lever causing injury.
