\015\012Most likely the JET orfice in the bottom of the carburator venturi throat is clogged. I am assuming you have a 5.5 Hp Honda motor but even if it is not the procedure is the same.
\015\012
\015\0121. Turn off the fuel supply selector
\015\012
\015\0122. Remove the float bowl by taking out the mounting hardawre. The nut / cap screw on the very bottom of the float bowl has holes in it. Make sure they are clean.
\015\012
\015\0123. Remove the "Brass" JET from the bottom venturi tube and clean the orifice. You should see a pinhole of light through the hole when it is clean.
\015\012
\015\0124. Remove the venturi tube just above the jet that is also brass. The throat of the venturi tube and the 2 side holes must be clear.
\015\012
\015\0125. Use something like a spray paint can lid to catch fuel and then briefly turn on the fuel supply. The fuel should flow at a good rate though the float needle and seat assy. GENTLY lift the float to the raised positon (level) and confirm fuel stops. Then loet it lower again noting fuel flow. TURN OFF THE FUEL selector. If you do not get any fuel at this point check the bottom of the fuel tank for obstructions at the tank outlet hole. Once you have verified fuel flow.
\015\012
\015\0126. Reinstall the venturi tube
\015\012
\015\0127. Reinstall the jet
\015\012
\015\0128. Reinstall the float bowl making sure upper and lower gaskets are in place.
\015\012
\015\0129. Turn on the fuel and wait one minute (check for leaks)
\015\012
\015\01210. Start the unit.....

My Siemens dishwasher SE65M350EU/70 has an error about once a week: it washes perfect but during the last step (rinsing/drying) it sometimes stops/ continues a number of times and then indicates a low water pressure error. But never during the other steps of the washing cycle. To me this indicates that the water pressure is correct. Any idea?

I just bought a used Kenmore standalone dishwasher and ran it for the first time. The dishes on the top did not get clean and the soap did not come out of the closed soup dish. at one point I took a shower and was wondering if that might have influenced the water pressure enough to cause the problem. Is the soap supposed to open during the wash and could the poor water pressure prevent the top shelf from getting properly washed?
