Having problems with your Honda Pressure Washer PSI 3000 ?

Compressor started leaking while using sprayer.Now engine won" bu

\015 Compressor started leaking while using sprayer. Used it until leak got bad. Tuned it off. Now I have taken it out to see if I can tell if it is a gasket or what. But can't budge the engine. It seems froze . Oil is OK\015

Answers :

The pump was able to run (crank) when still warm because it was still thermally expanded.
\015\012now that it has cooled - the pistons and block have shrunken, and the pump has seized.
\015\012The silver stuff you saw extruding was bits of aluminum from the block!! Theres nothing else in there but oil.
\015\012I would venture to say you have at minimum blown a piston seal!
\015\012You will need a new pump. If the piston has scored the inside of the block bad enough, replacement is your only option.

Honda CU2400 1-MHC has been sitting in my parents garage for about 2 years. It was used once or twice. It looks new. I tried to start it and it wouldn't. I drained the gas and put new premium gas in it and it started but it won't stay running and the pressure is not what it should be. It doesn't clean as well as the electric one I used last time. So, my problem is, it won't stay running and when it is running it doesn't have enough pressure. Any ideas???


After sitting that long, I'd guess the carburetor linkages etc., are partially seized and the governor is not operating as it should to allow proper RPM's when under load. Real good chance carburetor is gummed up good too. I'd get carb serviced, but ... Pressure Washers

Hard starting 6hp Briggs and Stratton power washer engine. I poured a teaspoon of gas into the cylinder; reinserted the spark plug and with one pull in ran fine. This is a choke start engine and it may take 12 to 15 pulls to start on a cold engine. The unit is clean. The air cleaner is new. The spark plug is new. The unit is 2 years old with very little use.

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 BRAND NEW TROY-BUILT 2600PSI pressure washer. I have used it twice for about 1/2 hour each time. It worked perfectly. I tried to use it today with everything hooked up perfectly. The Honda engine started perfectly; how ever when I squeezed the wand trigger, the engine instantley died. I let the engine warm up and slowley pushed the choke in. I let it warm up for plenty of time; but everry time I squeezed the trigger it instantly quit- it even backfired once before dying. I changed the g

I got the pressure washer started - lots of smoke etc after not having used 3 years. I then poured in wrong oil to top it off - my brother's chain saw bar oil. DARN. After 3-4 minutes it started rattling and stopped. Can't pull the chord to get started. Did it seize the engine? I have drained all oil. Can I try using a cleaner, light weight oil to try to unlock it?


Nope! you have blown the seals and most likely the cylinder is full of water. You will need to take it to the repairer to have it cleaned checked and new seals fitted. $200 ... Karcher 1750 psi Electric Pressure Washer

I have a Simoniz S2800, it will only start with the trigger depressed to release the pressure and when it starts the engine seems laboured and there doesn't seem to be the ame pressure as it used to have, also if it isn't used after a min or so it will release water pressure from the bottom, do I need a seal kit or a pump kit to correct this problem.

Engine starts easy. engine revs up and down but does not maintain a constant. Preasure tries to come up and then quits. the governor eeps moving back and forth. I have cleaned everything including the unloader. I used lithium grease on the o rings and still it does the same. Could this be caused by bad gas, even though it starts and runs very easy

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. Inlet water is flowing through pump but no pressure when engine is started. I have the same problem. Water flows thru the pump when not running, but no flow or goes in by-pass mode when I start the pump. The pump being Troy Bilt Model 020296-01. I replaced unloader valve even. Anything else I can do?


You replaced the unloaded valve. Are you positive you have the unloader screwed to pressure and not turned the opposite way? You will have no pressure if it is adjusted wrong. One other thing I have encountered is that the unloader has a ball bearing ... Pressure Washers

Bosch SHY66C My Bosch dishwasher won't fill with water.  All electrical connections are fine and I can hear it make a sound as if it is trying to start about every 2 minutes.  There was water in the bottom so I used a shop vac and pulled it all out but it still won't start and is doing the same thing.  I checked the solenoid with a multi-meter and it appears to be working.  My power went out last night for about two hours and that's all I can think of that might have affected it.  The dishwasher
