I have a Baldor 6000W generator with a gx340 11hp engine. I have drained the tank and carb and put new gas and sea foam in it. Also I have replaced the spark plug and fuel filter. The engine will start/run as long a I spray starting fluid in the carb. But it will not continue to run without it. Also I just checked the oil level and that is good. Please help!!!


It sounds like the engine is not getting enough fuel for it to run. First check that you have the fuel tap in the on position. If the fuel tap is on then the carby might be blocked or the needle & seat are not working properly. Turn the ... Honda 8 HP Engine

Pressure washer has been sitting up for about 2 years.. worked perfectly before I parked it.. lol.. But, I put a new spark plug on, cleaned the filter, sprayed carb cleaner in it drained the gas tank and added new gas.. But it still does the same thing.. It starts in the choke position, runs awhile, and then shuts off. While its running, I tried to put the switch in the run position and it kills.

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 pull the cord and the engine doesn't turn. Fuel value is on, choke is pulled, and the starter switch is turned on. System is practically brand new

Honda CU2400 1-MHC has been sitting in my parents garage for about 2 years. It was used once or twice. It looks new. I tried to start it and it wouldn't. I drained the gas and put new premium gas in it and it started but it won't stay running and the pressure is not what it should be. It doesn't clean as well as the electric one I used last time. So, my problem is, it won't stay running and when it is running it doesn't have enough pressure. Any ideas???


After sitting that long, I'd guess the carburetor linkages etc., are partially seized and the governor is not operating as it should to allow proper RPM's when under load. Real good chance carburetor is gummed up good too. I'd get carb serviced, but ... Pressure Washers

I have a Husky 2600 PSI power washer with the Honda GCV160 engine that I can't get to start. It was okay when I purchased it from Home Depot last spring but now I've tried putting new gas in it, spraying carb cleaner, new spark plug, and it still won't start. I only ran it for about 30 minutes when I first purchased it. The guy at the service desk at Home Depot told me that the water hose should be attached and turned on while trying to start. Is this true or would this be starting the motor und

Won start Was using the pressure washer 1st time this year and started on the second pull. Ran out of gas shut-off also noticed it needed oil. Believe, I put too much oil so, I drained some and added gas. At first, there was no resistant in the pull so waited an hour and tried again. This time the resistant was there on the pull but still would not start; no attempt even to turn over. It's been a couple of days...changed the spark plug although, hardware guy said nothing was wrong with it..still

We have a bosch she4am dishwasher and just recently the unit doesn't rinse all the soap out of the glasses of the top rack and also a film is being left on the dishes. i have checked the top spinner and it works fine, cleaned out the drain, only use recommended soap tablets and use jet dry. we recently put in new counter tops but i didn't move the unit itseld only the drain- would this have any effect?please help


Check the top of the cabinet after the unit has started to wash the water droplets is the key. if you see water droplets on the very top all over then the unit circulation pump is working. If that checks out then check the jet dry compartment. here ... Bosch SHE4AM06UC 24 in. Built-in Dishwasher

Honda GC190 no start. Unit has been sitting for 2 years. Drained old gas, cleaned the carb. No go. New plug gapped to 0.030in. Still nothing. spark seems good. Cleaned the fuel strainer and there IS a bit of vacuum at the fuel pump when cranking. Poured a dab of gas into combustion chamber.. Still won't "talk to me" AT ALL. Removed valve cover and checked the valves.. within specs and nothing sticking or hanging up. Timing belt and cam looks good. Took a peak at the coil.. air gap in specs. 1ohm

I have an Excell VR2500 pressure washer with B & S 6.5 HP engine. It was running fine, but then stalled out and now will not start. Has clean gas and full oil. I pulled the spark plug it is producing a sufficient spark when starter cord is pulled. Any ideas what might be causing the problem? Please help.


The key things to check are the spark plug, the air filter, the fuel. If those are all new and in good shape then you probably have gum in the carburator. Get a can of starter fluid and a helper. One person squirt the starter fluid into the air in ... Briggs & Stratton Pressure Washers

I have an equator PLS600 and I can't seem to get it to work. I have tried the WikiFix to help a stalled dishwasher, by adding water and vinegar. When I put on the wash cycle it does not run. Even with the short rinse cycle, the sprayer will not move, and the machine will just run through the cycle until it starts to drain. Please help!!! Thanks =)


Give the spray arm a spin to make sure it rotates. It should spin freely. If not, remove plastic spray arm clip, flip it over, replace it, and try again. Make sure holes in the spray arm are clear of debris. Spray arm must be clean for it to spin ... Equator 20 in. PLS600 Free-Standing Dishwasher

My whirlpool motor does not sound like it kicks on when started. The dishes are not getting cleaned...and water remains in the bottom. When I hit drain, it will drain.
