Won start Was using the pressure washer 1st time this year and started on the second pull. Ran out of gas shut-off also noticed it needed oil. Believe, I put too much oil so, I drained some and added gas. At first, there was no resistant in the pull so waited an hour and tried again. This time the resistant was there on the pull but still would not start; no attempt even to turn over. It's been a couple of days...changed the spark plug although, hardware guy said nothing was wrong with it..still

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?

I have a Karcher K3.48M electric pressure washer which used to shut off when you weren't using the cleaning wand. This no longer happens and there is alot of water running out of the bottom of the unit.

In other words, if I find and repair the leak and there is a failed pressure switch, it will likely only break again. I can'
