Question about Karcher 2500 PSI Pressure Washer

1 Answer

I have a snowblower that will only start if I remove sparkplug

I have a snowblower (older model) that will only start and run if I remove the sparkplug and add a small amount of gasoline into the chamber. Once I have added the gasoline, I reinstall the plug and it starts on the first pull. It runs great until I stop it. Then I have to repeat the same proceedure.

I assume this is on a snowblower?

Be sure you have fresh fuel.

You can also remove the bowl on the carb and spray carb cleaner in any orfice you see.

Always store a snowblower with fuel stabilizer in it. Otherwise it the fuel can "varnish" the inside of the carb and cause problem.

If it still doesn't start check compression.

Hi
Sounds like a clogged carb which is a common problem for snowblowers due to they set around more then they get used and gas turns stale and clogs carb. Most of the times the problem is in the bolt that holds the carb bowl on it should have 2 or 3 small holes in it. Check that the holes are all open and clean if this does not help you will need to remove and clean whole carb.

Hi
Most common problem with snowblowers is clogged carb. Remove spark plug and put a tea spoon full of gas in the plug hole and try to start. If it starts for a sec that is your problem. To get a manual go to searspartsdirect.com you will need the model number to find the correct manual. Model number should start with 917.XXXXXXX.

Turn on gas with the carb bowl off and float hanging and see how much fuel flows.It should be a steady stream.Have seen the seat in the needle and seat swell that only lets gas drip through not enough to keep it running.
