Engine will not turn-over. It is a Honda 11 HP, OHV on a Karcher Pressure Washer. It was running fine for about 45 minutes. All of a sudden it stopped. When I tried to start it again, the engine is bound up so that the pull rope will not pull out at all. It has plenty of gas. The crank case is full of oil, not over full.


Pull the spart plug out and see if you can pull it. Sometimes the carb will flood the engine to a point that they get hydrolic lock.If it does free up then I suggest cleaning the carburator before trying to start it again.If it does not free up the y ... Karcher 2500 PSI Pressure Washer

I have a model PW 2200 gas pressure washer. It suddenly lost it's high pressure the other day after working fine for @10 minutes. It's getting plenty of water, but the engine doesn't seem to rev up to give it the high pressure. The operating instructions say to check the oil in the engine, and the PUMP before starting, but I haven't found any place to check for an oil level in the pump????Any ideas, I'm very confused.

I HAVE A BRAND NEW TROY-BUILT 2600PSI pressure washer. I have used it twice for about 1/2 hour each time. It worked perfectly. I tried to use it today with everything hooked up perfectly. The Honda engine started perfectly; how ever when I squeezed the wand trigger, the engine instantley died. I let the engine warm up and slowley pushed the choke in. I let it warm up for plenty of time; but everry time I squeezed the trigger it instantly quit- it even backfired once before dying. I changed the g

Thanks.

I have a Karcher 2,600 PSI 2.3 GPM Gas Pressure Washer G 2600 VHR that I have used once last summer. I have stored the PW in my basement with no fuel in the gas tank. The PW was never exposed to freezing temps. I cannot get the PW to start. I put new fuel into the tank, the oil is good, I drained the carburetor, and the spark plug works (tested it).

I have an 2002 Eclipse with a locked out radio. The dealer told me to turn the key to on w/o starting the engine, turn everything on and in an hour or so the radio would rest.

I have gas in the oil fill and oil coming out of the exhaust of my Ridgid pressure washer. I lent it to my father who isnt mechanical at all so anything could have happened while he was using it. He has since passed away so he cant tell me if he did anything wrong to it. Its a Ridgid with a Subaru SP170 OHC Engine. Any help would be appreciated. Scot


Check to see if the oil is overfilled first.If the oil is at a normal level, the engine was probably overheated or ran low on oil.It is also possible that the machine was tipped over and oil ran into the cylinder. ... Pressure Washers

I have an shx65905uc bosch dishwasher that runs and works except for that there is not enough water pressure to rotate the top wand or operate the top sprinkler. The bottom wand does have water and turn and does the top but it is not enough to turn it. If i remove the bottom wand and plug it off then the top will work properly. I have cleaned all screens and removed the plate to access the pump and all seems fine. Any Thoughts


... Bosch SHX65P05UC Dishwasher

The engine starts cold after 2 or three pulls, runs ok initially, but seems to have slightly less power. After a few minutes I can turn off the choke. When teh engine warms up and runs for about 15 minutes, there is a definite power decrease and the motor sounds like it will stall. If I paly with the choke, it does not stall, but has little power to pump water. If the engine does stall or it is turned off, it will not restart until it cools down.


I would first try draining the carb bowl, if you look at where the choke lever is and look below that you should see a clear red tube with a flat head screw below that, if you just turn the screw out the carb will drain. If you still have an issue yo ... Karcher G3025OH Pressure Washer
