Answers :

Most Honda engines have an oil pressure switch that prevents engine damage due to low/no oil pressure. Make sure there is sufficient oil in the engine and that the wire is connected to the pressure switch.

I have an Asko 3251 that is about 4 years old. It has been great up until 2 nights ago when it just keeps running when is has completely cycled. You can open the door and it keeps running. You can push the shut off button and the lights on the controls go out but something keeps running. The only way I can shut it off is by shutting off the circuit breaker. The next morning I can turn the breaker back on and it will be off. Does anyone have an idea what is causing this?

I have a 1 year old ridgid 3300psi 3.0gpm 7hp subaru fuel injected EX21FI engine. Once warm the engine will periodically surge for 30s to 2minutes. Wondering what i can do to fix the problem, it has done that since new. Also, once it is warm and you shut it off, you have to wait at least 30m to start it again...almost like it floods itself when it is shut down? Thanks

Troy Built pressure washer starts up fine and idles nice. Start spraying and everything is fine for about 30sec to 1min then the engine just shuts off. Seems like pressure is building up and choking the engine out. If I dont spray it will idle all day long. I have cleaned the unloader area, still shuts off.

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

Ignitors keep firing by themselves after my aunt cleaned them 24 hours ago After she did the major cleaning of the stove I used the oven and it worked fine. I lit a burner (Probably front?) and the left rear burner went pop and then all the ignitors keep firing by themselves until I shut off the circuit breaker. Now when ever the stove is turned on the igitors keep firing constantly. I tried unplugging the ignitors one at a time but they all keep firing even if the other ones are disconnected. A

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.

Our Miele DW just keeps going through cycles constantly and will not shut off on its own. It has gone all day. When we turned the dial manually to "OFF", the water keeps filling until it overflows the machine onto the floor. So far, our only option has been to turn the machine back on and let it keep running. Any suggestions?


Hi,\015\012\015\012sounds like a faulty electronic unit as i have seen this before where the unit continously fills with water. \015\012you will probably need a service call to repair the unit unless you are happy to fix it yourselv ... Miele 24 in. G865 Built-in Dishwasher

Engine won't shut off! Replaced the shut off switch and it still won't shut off!


All the off switches do is to ground the spark either through  the primary or secondary. Make sure one side of the switch is hooked to a ground and the other to the primary (small wire) of the magneto.  ... Pressure Washers

My frigidaire dishwasher will not shut off the water being pumped into the dishwasher. It just keeps pumping in even after the required fill time and will not shut off, eventually I have to turn off the shut off so that it doesn't overflow. The float is working ok. Is this a sensor,circuit board?

I have a Troybuilt pressure washer which has a Honda GC160 engine. The engine starts easily but quits after about a minute. One pull and it re-starts, then quits in a minute....... This goes on for as long as I want to keep re-starting it. Anyone know what it might be? I pulled the carb off and blew out all of the various ports I could find. I did not remove the carb adjustment screws as I have not had any luck getting them back in place during previous problems with other gas engines.

We have a Whirlpool mod# DU1055XTVD0 dishwasher .. the blue latch designed to keep the lid to the detergent dispenser closed after filling has come loose from the inside door panel and now will not stay in place to keep the detergent lid shut. We did find a small o-ring in the bottom of the tub that apparently is part of what helps maybe hold this latch in place, but obviously there must be something else that fits inside the hole the latch goes in that keeps it secure.
