Having problems with your Karcher 2500 PSI Pressure Washer ?

Pull cord getting stuck

\015 Pull cord is getting stuck\015\012on pressure washer. It started fine but suddenly stopped. When I try to pull the cord to start it again it has a difficult time turning the engine. It is extremely hard to pull and sometimes gets stuck so I can't pull it at all. I have checked the oil level which is fine. I thought maybe it ran out of oil and the engine seized but that doesn't seem to be the case unless somehow the oil isn't getting to the engine.Any advise appreciated.Thanks!Jon\015

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.
