SOURCE: % hp Honda Motor runs on choke

Dear LC39B,
Is it possible you are blaming the wrong part of the machine? Did you try the Honda Motor on its own? I am asking , because if the pump of the washer has some fault or a bit jammed, this will demand a lot of power from the Honda. You can try the Honda with no water connection and no gun.
Regarding the Honda motor, you should check the electrical system also. I am saying this because you did not mention it, in your service procedure.

SOURCE: excell pressure washer honda motor---have fuel

Sounds like the carb is badly clogged internally. If you can remove it yourself, you can soak it overnight in a can of carb cleaner. But keep in mind some of the internal passageways in the carb are as fine a human hair and soaking may not work, it which case go to plan B, new carb. Last resort you could try to find cleaners small enough to get in the passageways of the carb, I've heard of people using wire brush bristles for example. Today's gas is terrible, it does not take long to gum up the carb, if it sits for any time.

SOURCE: When you are washing ( spraying ) its fine but

These pressure washers are really designed to fail... it is a good idea to NEVER take your hand off the trigger and to wash nonstop as long as the unit is running... it will prolong the life of your pressure washer... if you have warranty on the unit see if they can exchange it for you... if not I don't advise you to take it apart... they are cheaper to replace than fix. Use it until it dies.

This is the typical problem when the water admitance valve sticks. This valve admits more water to the pump when the pressure drops when wand is triggered. When pressure increases, water is blocked. This is the way they regulate the pressure. The valve is in a bore, usually crossways to the axis of the shaft of the pump. Disassemble the valve noting how the parts go in. Clean the bore with crocus cloth on a dowel rod. Replace all the O rings on the valve spool. Lightly lube the spool with plumber's grease and reassemble.... Good as new! You can often buy a kit of O rings for the valve. They must be EXACT right size. This is normally a one-half hour job.

Won't start without starting fluid

You might want to try using a carburetor cleaner additive, or a spray cleaner to clean the carb internally. Make sure your air filter is clean. You may also want to make sure fuel lines are not restricted.

When I move the choke to run the motor dies....even after 30 minutes of running.

No, but it sounds if the carb needs to be cleaned! Fresh fuel helps too. Check the spark plug and check the breather filter. Also you can crank the engine with the breather filter off and try to move the choke to run then. If it runs with the filter off then there is your problem! 1 question, has anyone try to work on it or adjust the carb in any way?

When the washer is not spraying, the motor cycles on and off. Eventually the motor overheats and shuts down.

You shouldn't let the washer run for more then 30 seconds without spraying. If you let the motor run without squeezing the trigger, the pump will overheat and damage the motor. You may also need to change the spark plug and clean/replace the air filter.

You should try to dry the motor out and not run it until it does. You can use a hair dryer, etc. or just wait. You might even be able to find a spray that is made just for absorbing water under these circumstances at a motor rebuilder. Once it dries, it may work fine.

My gas pressure washer fell in the pool while running. Is it a goner?

Maybe, there is a slim chance it died before sucking water into the cylinder and cracking the head. To try and fix it drain out all motor oil buy a can of carburetor cleaner and spray the engine out remove the oil plug and the spark plug and spray some wd 40 into the spark plug hole, replace the air filter dry the spark plug and clean the fuel tank and replace the fuel filter inside the fuel tank replace oil with fresh oil and then give it a try. You’re out $20.00 but if it runs you are one lucky person.

1996 Honda Civic Wiper Spray problems

You will not be able to tell whether the spray nozzle is clean just by looking at it.
Poke it with a fine needle and keep trying to spray. If it is blacked,it will soon clear up.
I take it you can hear the spray motor running when you depress the switch.
