I have a Karcher 2,600 PSI 2.3 GPM Gas Pressure Washer G 2600 VHR that I have used once last summer. I have stored the PW in my basement with no fuel in the gas tank. The PW was never exposed to freezing temps. I cannot get the PW to start. I put new fuel into the tank, the oil is good, I drained the carburetor, and the spark plug works (tested it). I pull the cord and the engine doesn't turn. Fuel value is on, choke is pulled, and the starter switch is turned on. System is practically brand new

Engine will not turn-over. It is a Honda 11 HP, OHV on a Karcher Pressure Washer. It was running fine for about 45 minutes. All of a sudden it stopped. When I tried to start it again, the engine is bound up so that the pull rope will not pull out at all. It has plenty of gas. The crank case is full of oil, not over full.


Pull the spart plug out and see if you can pull it. Sometimes the carb will flood the engine to a point that they get hydrolic lock.If it does free up then I suggest cleaning the carburator before trying to start it again.If it does not free up the y ... Karcher 2500 PSI Pressure Washer

I have gas in the oil fill and oil coming out of the exhaust of my Ridgid pressure washer. I lent it to my father who isnt mechanical at all so anything could have happened while he was using it. He has since passed away so he cant tell me if he did anything wrong to it. Its a Ridgid with a Subaru SP170 OHC Engine. Any help would be appreciated. Scot
