Why will the pull cord not pull on my honda pressure washer gcv160?


You need to disconnect the pump from the engine to see if the pump is seized.

Pressurewasher runs fine then shuts down and cant pull


Same thing happened to me and I found out that water was getting into the carb filter media. Try taking the carb filter cover off and see if the foam filter is wet. If so, try starting without the filter and see if it works. THis issue used to drive me crazy on my unit, hope this helps.

Crank pull cord doesn't pull out on honda pressure washer.. The machine is only 3 months old


if the fuel tap has been left on it may have fuel on top of the cylinder and would not able to pull cord.
if so take the spark plug out and turn over,fuel may come out of hole.replace spark plug and try to start. if it still won't turn over,you will need to take the face plate off the motor. remove and inspect if there is any foreign objects. try to turn motor over by hand., grab on to fly wheel & turn. if it moves freely it may be the pull start it-self. try pulling the cord out. if no problem assemble and try to start.

The pull cord is stuck, can't be pulled to start


This solution applies to the Sears model 358.797200, which also appears to the FL1500LE marketed under the Craftsman name, and may apply to other, similar, blowers. Go to the searspartsdirect.com site and enter the Sears model number. This blower may be prone to develop binding in the pull cord rewind spring compartment. (The binding may easily be misdiagnosed as a seized up engine.) The binding can be fixed by adding washers to increase the spacing. Open the rewind starter page on the sears site for an exploded view. I found that by placing 2 washers on each of the 5 screws (no. 7 on the diagram) which attach impeller housing (12) to the motor, I increased the spacing enough so the pull cord operated and retracted normally. The washers must go between the impeller housing and the motor. To complete the repair, you need to add a washer between the spacing flywheel (14) and the impeller(15) to keep the impeller from binding against the housing. The gasoline tank screws won't line up as well with the holes, but will fit. Install all 3 screws for the at first loosely, then tighten them down.

Motor seems to be locked up!!!!!!!!


It may be your engine, but it may also be the water pressure. Try this: Hold the trigger down while pulling the recoil starter. This acts as an unloader for the pressure washer, and may allow the engine to turn over. There is also an oil level in the pump as well as the engine. Check both levels.
Just a thought, but I've been there. Best regards, W/D

Honda GC190 engine shuts down on my Karcher 3000 PSI PW


Well would you believe that I have the very same problem. I suspected that the pump was seizing up, so we tried the pump on another unit and it worked fine. On inspection of the motor we found the cam (which also operates the decompression mechanism) was worn out. It's made of hard plastic. It is only about 7 dollars too, so cheap enough to fix. I have mine ordered now and feel pretty confident that that should fix it.

The pull cord will not pull..I can't start the engine. What can I do?


Remove the spark plug and see if it will then turn over. If it does then the motor is not seized or has water or fluid it is trying to compress.

If the above lets it turn over freely the problem lies with the cord being trapped on the pully that is spring loaded.This task is better investigated by someone with experience to avoid losing parts and not beoing able to reassemble.
