Having problems with your Honda 8 HP Engine ?

The engine does not turn over freely. stiff to turn over, got a high spot

\015 What is the most likely problem? Problem with the bore? Can over sized piston kits and gasket sets be bought easily?\015

Answers :

THE ENGINE MAY HAVE BEEN TILTED OVER AT SOME STAGE AND YOU MAY HAVE CRANKCASE OIL IN THE CYLINDER.
REMOVE THE SPARK PLUG , PLACE THE PLUG BACK IN THE SPARK CAP AND EARTH THE PLUG AWAY FROM THE CYLINDER.
CRANK THAT MOTOR UNTIL ALL ENGINE OIL IS OUT OF THE CYLINDER ( SOME CARB CLEANER AND COMPRESSED AIR WILL HELP REMOVE THE LAST RESIDUE.

CLEAN UP THE SPARK PLUG , PUT IT BACK IN AND KICK HER IN THE GUTS (YOUR ENGINE THAT IS) ....HOPE THIS WORKS.

What does the F2 Error mean? I got that error thsi morning. The engine was buzzing so I turned the power off. I have cleared what appears to be calcium and/or soap build-up in the 3 filters and in the drain. When I turn the power back on I still get the F2 error.

I have a Sears (Briggs) 2550 washer mod # 580.752190, has been working great but when I got it out last week it wouldn't start with the water on, I turn the water off bleed the pressure out the wand and it started and ran great, I thought it might be the relief valve, I removed the valve turned on the water, a big stream was shooting out the hole where the valve goes, I started the engine and it ran but sounded like it was about half loaded. where do I go from here ? Thanks.

DD603 upper drawer pump rotor will not turn - F2 error. Was completely siezed. Removed rotor and got the shaft to turn with pliers. However it does not spin freely and still shows an F2 error. Does anyone have a repair manual so I can figure out how to remove the pump? Lower drawer had an F1 error (due to the upper leaking/F2 error) and this website helped me fix that problem.


Maybe you dont have to remove anything else.. try the rotor from the bottom drawer first. If this works just buy a new rotor.. ... Fisher and Paykel 23 in. DD-603SS Built-in Dishwasher

I have a SMEG DWF614 SS dishwasher. I continue to get an E8 error message. The diverter valve motor turns freely & the motor turns freely when they are seperated. However, when they are assembled, the motor turns the valve & continues to try turning the valve when the valve is on its stop position. Is the motor & valve faulty or is it the control. If you can answer, what part number would I require. Regards Leighton Davies

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

Champion dishwasher we have a champion freestanding dishwasher at my church. after the cycle is completed, the pressure guage behind the washer still shows 25-30 and it contnues to spray water. not forced by the motor, but more like a stuck open fill valve. if i turn off the water and run it, then turn the water back on, the valve is closed and does not let water freely in. butif i run it with the water on, it will continue to spray in freely after the cycle light goes out and you open the door.


If you turn the unit off from the circuit breaker will the water still run?if so the guts inside the solenoid valve are worn.you can call champion and get a kit to replace the worn parts and its not difficult to do.hope this helps. ... Dishwashers

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.

My AEG Favourit F35080vl is behaving strangely. When turned on, the lights don't light and it doesn't work, but it emits a ticking noise! After an hour or so it works (until yesterday), and is ok, unless turned off. It was inadvertently turned off at the weekend, and now ticks whenever turned on and refuses to behave normally again. We got a local repair man out who replaced the logic board at a considerable cost, and it has made no difference. He says he doesn't know what to do next! Any ideas?
