Having problems with your Northstar Pressure Washers ?

Have a honda 11 horse on a north star power washer that has no spark,yes the switch is on.


Answers :

Cause of no spark can be determined by process of elimination. Good to have a new sparkplug on hand to eliminate plug as fault. So start by replacing plug with new or test plug on mower /edger etc. for spark. If plug ok, then temporarily remove the wire connected to oil alert system (oil alert will ground coil if oil low or dirty). With oil alert unpluged, and no spark suspect sparkplug boot or coil. The sparkplug boot threads on to the spartplug wire and is what actually fits-on to the spark plug. You can test the coil by removing the boot and inserting piece of paperclip wire, or small screw into end of the coil wire and hold close to engine ground while pulling rope. If still no spark suspect coil. If spark, replace the boot. Good luck with repair.

I have a Honda xr2600 power washer. When I tried using it, water was squirting from the top of the gun. I took it apart to find that there are o-rings on top of some kind of washer---looks like a lock washer but it's made of cardboard??? Two of these washers were broken. I can get the o-rings but I can't seem to find the washers. I tried getting the manual for this model on line with no luck. Any assistance will be greatly appreciated.
