... Honda Black Max 2600 PSI Pressure Washer

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

Honda GC 160 Engine, I had the carb replaced about 1 year ago, now its doing the same thing. At first it wouldnt start at all, I cleaned the carb, then it started would speed up and die. I then took the carb off and cleaned the jets, now it starts with the choke in the closed position only, at high speed it sputters and dies, but will I run it at med speed it runs but will die with tiller has a load, also when you put the choke to open it always dies. I dumped all the gas, and checked the fuel


This really sounds like a carb problem, good to hear that you are taking the carb all the way off and soaking it, this is the best way to clean a carb. I don't think it would be the fuel pump, they either work or they don't. I would check the governe ... Karcher 2500 PSI Pressure Washer

Motor will start on choke setting and then it immediately dies when moving the choke lever to the run position. Cleaned carb, new plug new air cleaner and checked all linkages. the motor has new oil and runs rough on choke like it should. any help


You say you cleaned the carb. If you did that by spraying cleaner in through the choke, that's good, but it doesn't get to the root of the problem. The problem is getting the gas into the carb. Try this. drain the gas. Put a small amount of c ... Honda Pressure Washers

GSD2200G00WW. When starting washer, part of the time the machine will not start, other times if machine has been running for a while and you open the door and try to restart the machine it will not restart. You can hear the motor humming as if it wants to go but it will only restart if you turn the motor shaft even just a little. I am wondering if the electric motor is dying??

I have a kenmore 15951793 it refuses to drain. I've metered the drain line into the motor and it is there but it will attempt to run but seems to trip a thermal breaker. the motor doesn't turn at all but the motor shaft is free, so I'm assuming bad coil. Any thoughts??

Bosch SHE55P05UC Used it maybe 10 times in 10 months (long remodel underway) and noticed it didn't work properly. Powers up, but doesn't always fill with water...just "runs" until I shut it off. Or it fills, runs most of cycle, but the soap doesn't open, and I end up with a hard soap "cake" at end of cycle...Or it washes..with soap, but during drying...never turns off...and I'm not sure when the problem occurs, but that everything is wet. At least with this one....I can do

Motor will start and run as long the high pressure valve on the nozzle handle is held open but when the nozzle valve is closed the motor will bog down and die.


Your pressure washer is equipped with a device called an "unloader valve". This valve allows the water to route into a by-pass loop when the trigger is not pulled. If you can locate a parts breakdown for your model (like in the owner's manual - hop ... Karcher G 2600 VH Gas Pressure Washer

I have a 5HP Honda engine installed on a Excell pressure washer. While the engine readily starts, it will not continue to run unless I keep the choke setting nearly completely closed. When I activate the pressure gun, it seems to generate adequate pressure, however, when the trigger is released, the engine continues to run at the same rpm instead of the normal variable rpm that most engines operate at during idling periods. The engine will always cease running when I push the choke rod all the w

I have a pressure washer with a Honda gcv190 engine. The motor runs great but there isn't any water pressure. I removed the manifold and pump and found some mineral deposits and cleaned everything out and while attempting to reinstall the pump on the crankshaft I noticed the key was missing. Upon further inspection it appears that the key was missing from the beginning or had sheared off and then disintegrated. (There were a lot of metal shavings in the pump shaft recess). My main question is th

Maytag DWU6402AAB dishwasher hums but motor does not run. I've taken the inside apart down to the disk-shaped impeller. It turns freely so the pump and motor are not stuck. When control knob is turned motor hums at the places where it normally should run. The water valve & heating coil seem to be operationg normally. i assume the next step is to test the motor &/or motor relay. Is this correct and how do I do that?

Dear LC39B,\015\012Is it possible you are blaming the wrong part of the machine? Did you try the Honda Motor on its own? I am asking , because if the pump of the washer has some fault or a bit jammed, this will demand a lot of power from the ... Karcher 2500 PSI Pressure Washer

I have a Craftsman power washer model 580 752020. When I start it up, turn on the switch the electric motor runs fine until I either close the trigger to the spray nozzle or press the trigger for power spray. The electric motor just shuts down, if I take my finger off the pressure and let the water run with no presssure the motor runs fine. My question is this. Is the capasitator on the electric motor the probable cause and is there a way to check out the capasitator to see if it is malfuncti


I doubt that it has anything to do with the capacitor on the motor. i think you are having a problem with the actual Motor Drive circuitry. What is happening is when you close the switch, this tells the Motor to "Ramp Up" to pump the water out, what ... Craftsman Pressure Washers
