Having problems with your Northstar Pressure Washer 2800 PSI ?

I have a NorthStar pressure washer (2000 psi / 2 Gal /Min.) with a Honda motor. We tried to start it a couple weeks ago and could only get it to run on starting fluid. Sprayed the carb with carb cleaner, still no dice. Am I actually going to have to use my mechanical talent to make this thing run (I hate when that happens)?

Pressure washer has been sitting up for about 2 years.. worked perfectly before I parked it.. lol.. But, I put a new spark plug on, cleaned the filter, sprayed carb cleaner in it drained the gas tank and added new gas.. But it still does the same thing.. It starts in the choke position, runs awhile, and then shuts off. While its running, I tried to put the switch in the run position and it kills. Just wanted to see what an expert would say about the matter before I Brake it down. thanks

I have a Bosch SHU66C02. I opened the door to stop it from running temporarily, while it was sitting not running, it leaked all of the water out of the bottom right corner of the door, and when I went to start it later it just hummed but the timer didn't go down for over an hour. I tried to put more water in but as soon as I started I could hear the water added to drain. I turned the breaker in the fuze box off to it and let it sit for over an hour, but when I restarted, the timer was still at

I have a Husky 2600 PSI power washer with the Honda GCV160 engine that I can't get to start. It was okay when I purchased it from Home Depot last spring but now I've tried putting new gas in it, spraying carb cleaner, new spark plug, and it still won't start. I only ran it for about 30 minutes when I first purchased it. The guy at the service desk at Home Depot told me that the water hose should be attached and turned on while trying to start. Is this true or would this be starting the motor und

Maytag MDBH965AWQ I have a Maytag dishwasher model number MDBH965AWQ. A few weeks ago the clean and sanitized lights would not go off after the door had been left open for over 30 seconds. Then last week, the diswasher would shut off in mid cycle and all lights would turn off with water still in the dishwasher. Today, I noticed that I am able to open the dishwasher door while the dishwasher is running and it will continue to run like the door was never opened. Now it is starting to trip the brea

I have a GE dishwasher model GLDL560N10SS. I noticed a burning smell coming from it the other day and then realized that although I can hear water running into the dishwasher when I start it, it never actually runs in the sense that the water is pushed through the various outlets to wash the dishes. I'm assuming that it is because the unit is dry and the heating element is still coming on that it is causing a burning smell. If I open the unit and reset it, it pumps the water back out into the si

Smelly Dishwasher Hi I have a Baumatic bad6002 dishwasher. The smell that comes out of it is putrid and has been from day one. We rinse everything before it goes in, I have used dishwasher cleaners and hung smelly things in there to prevent the smell but it still stinks. I do not use cheap cleaners only finish or morning fresh. It gets turned on approx every 2-3 days and the dishes actually go mouldy before it gets turned on. I have had several dishwashers and this is by far the the most disgust

Hi. I have a Briggs & Stratton 2800PSI gas pressure washer. I can get it to start, but after about 5 min, then it quits. I have cleaned the carb, change oil, changed plug, new gas, cleaned/checked air filter. Nothing will keep it running. Wondering if it may be not enough water pressure, but would that cause it to stop like that? When it runs, it does a good job, but it stops just as you get going. Do you have any other suggestions? Thanks!
