Having problems with your Honda Karcher G4000RH Pressure Washer ?

Honda gas power pressure washer runs for awhile then cuts off.

\015 I have a Honda gas power pressure washer that is about 5 years old and has always worked fine. The first time I used it this year, it was hard to start. When I did get it cranked it ran well for awhile then cut off. I can still start it but it will only run for a brief time. Help!\015

Answers :

Did you pour all of the old gas out before you started to use it. Sometimes condensation builds up in gas tank when stored. You need to dump old gas an put in new gas.

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. Just wanted to see what an expert would say about the matter before I Brake it down. thanks

I have a Northstar pressure washer powered by a honda GC160 engine. The last time i used it, water leaks from the bottom of the unit, whether it is running or not. When running, the pressure is fine. I have felt underneath and it appears that the water is coming from the second opening from the rear. Is there a pressure relief valve there. I have a manual but cannot find any descriptors for underneath the motor.

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.

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
