Having problems with your Honda Pressure Washers ?

My 13 hp honda power washer has a miss when it's not under a load. Is it a fuel or spark problem ?


Answers :

Most likely fuel / plug. Easy to check. While running unloaded and miss-firing, try applying the choke just a little to increase fuel mixture (make run slightly rich), if clears may need carb kit. If it gets worse with slight choke running rich or plug faulty. Before you change parts try using premium fuel. If runs better problem solved.

I have a troy built power washer powered by honda. It runs for 10 - 15 minutes and then dies. I have replacced the ignition coil, spark plug, rebuilt the carburetor, checked fuel flow and placed the unloader valve and it still dies. Once it dies and the pressure is released it repeats the problem. Any suggestions?

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

I have a Craftsman 2700 psi pressure washer with a Briggs and Stratton 850 engine (80 year anniversary special addition) . It is about 2 years old and used very little and will not start. I filled it with fresh fuel and checked the oil. I also replaced the spark plug and air filter. I checked the fuel line thinking it may not be getting fuel, but there is no obstruction from the tank to the end of the fuel line. I am out of TS options short of taking it to a service center.

My Asko D1976 dishwasher is not cleaning dishes properly. There is a lot of clumped detergent left in the dispenser after wash cycles are complete, and many of the dishes have dried-on food left on them. I rinse dishes before loading them into the washer, I have made sure the jets and washer arms are clean, and made sure the food trap at the bottom of the washer is empty, yet the problem persists. I think it has to do with the detergent not dissolving and dispensing. Is there some reason the
