My neighbor just gave me a Troy Bilt 020207 power washer. It is 2450 PSI and 2 GPM. He snapped the pull cord rope. I looked at the pull cord cover and it seems to have 3 rivets holding it to the main housing. How do you recommend to repair or replace the pull cord?

This sounds like the pump has dead headed. I.e. the unloader valve is sticking. Unhooking all of the hoses should eventually allow everything to free up. Once it is free what you should do is add about 3 ounces of oil into the water inlet connecti ... Pressure Washers

My gas power washer will not start. I filled the gas, checked the oil, set the choke, made sure it was on, changed the spark plug, checked the air filter, and drained any water. When I pull the cord to start I don't even get a putter. Anything else I can try or do I need to take it to a service place.


Will it run if you pour a small amount of gas in the carb? If so, it's a fuel supply problem. Most likely a stuck closed float needle. ... Honda Maxus Pressure Washer MX5222

I purchased a Honda Power Washer Model PWH2600 two weeks ago. I cleaned half my deck when the motor shut off unexpectantly, and now the cord will not pull to restart the engine. Any ideas what I can do for the cord to pull normally?

My Honda 2600 psi power washer will not pull to start. It was running great then I allowed the neighbor to borrow it. He ran the washer till it was out of gas and proceeded to refuel and at this point it would no longer start. The pull cord is out about 4-6 inches out and I am concerned about taking the casing off myself. Fearing that it may throw more off on the unit. If i take the casing off are there any spring loaded parts that will dismount? What should I do? Spark Plug? Turn

Troy-Bilt 2550 20293 pressure washer not producing pressure. Worked when last used 2 months ago. Pump pistons are moving up and down when engine is pulled through.
