Having problems with your Honda 2500 PSI Gas Pressure Washer ?

It start then stops running - Honda 2500 PSI Gas Pressure Washer


Answers :

Have you checked to see if it has a good strong spark? Remove plug, put back on coil wire, put end of spark plug next to the engine head bolts. Then turn the motor over a few times and watch the spark plug to see if a good strong jumps across from plug to engine head bolt or other metal surface.

If you have bad spark, change plug. If it is still weak spark, check the coils.

If spark is good, then you have a fuel problem. Likely gummed up and sticking floats in the carberator that will have to be pulled off and apart and soaked in solvent or other cleaner for an hour.

Another possiblility but not as common is a faulty kill or power switch which can be tested with an ohm meter.

Check fuel filter and fuel lines.

Hi. I have a Briggs & Stratton 2800PSI gas pressure washer. I can get it to start, but after about 5 min, then it quits. I have cleaned the carb, change oil, changed plug, new gas, cleaned/checked air filter. Nothing will keep it running. Wondering if it may be not enough water pressure, but would that cause it to stop like that? When it runs, it does a good job, but it stops just as you get going. Do you have any other suggestions? Thanks!

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 Briggs & Stratton gas power washer. This is the 1st time this year that I have used it. I put in fresh gas, hooked up the water supply. The engine started and then quickly stopped. I had to release the water pressure in the hose before I could pull start the engine. The only way to keep the engine running is to hold down the spray nozzle trigger. Once that is released the pressure in the hose builds up and the engine stops.

I have a Honda GC160 5 horsepower power washer with 2400 psi. When its cold it is easy to start but after it has been running for a while the only way to start it is to have the water shooting out of the wand. Once it is hot and running if i stop the stream of water (release the trigger on the wand) then the machine shuts off.

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
