It is possible that the oil pressure switch is not functioning properly or you have a lighter oil in the machine than is recommended.

if you follow the chemical hose back to the pump it will be attached to a barbed nipple, behind the nipple there should be an o-ring, spring and a ball.
A lot of the time if you are using the proper nozzle in the low pressure setting and still cannot create suction the ball will be stuck to the o-ring. You can just free this up and put a little white grease on the o-ring.

SOURCE: I have a Karcher 2,600 PSI 2.3 GPM Gas Pressure

Hi I have a similar pressure washer from Kartcher and the same scenario as yours I have owned it for about 2 years and noticed that it was getting harder and harder to start with each time I use it which is months. If your pw has a honda engine on it the likely culprit may be the carbuerator. The main and pilot jets may get clogged up with gunk from dired up gasoline. To see if you have a fuel problem spray a shot of starter fluid into the carberator with the choke open, then close it and try to start. If it runs for about a second and dies, then the carbuerator is at fault and you are not getting fuel into your motor and all you're doing is working out your arm.

SOURCE: What type of oil is needed for a Honda GC160 Power

The type of oil recommended for that engine is SAE 10W-30 and the capacity is 0.61 quarts. This and more can be referenced at the website at the end of this solution. I was able to find the owners manual of your particular engine.

Check your oil level. This machine has a "low oil shutoff" safety mechanism. If the oil is low it shuts down.

Ridgid pressure washer motor runs choppy when choke is disengaged


The choke reduces the air flow into the carb. If you are having problems with the choke off, it means that not enough fuel is getting into the engine and it is running lean. When you choke it, the reduced air flow causes the mixture to be correct and it runs fine.

Where is the oil drain plug located on a Homelite 2700 psi 2.3 GPM Honda Gas Pressure Washer?


There is drain plug, surprisingly. You basically have to tip the washer over to the side opposite of the exhaust. I like to take the wheel off first. It is much easier this way. You don't want oil to get in the exhaust Or you could get something like a turkey baster and pull it out. There isnt much oil in there so it isn't that difficult.
Let me know if you need more assistance.

Won't Stay On


If it's brand new, the first thing I'd check is the oil level in the Honda motor. Most pressure washers are tested then the oil is drained out for shipment. Honda motors have an oil sensor in them that will shut the motor off if the oil level is low. When the motor is off, all the oil is in the bottom of the crankcase and the sensor 'thinks' all's OK. When you start it up and the oil is getting splashed around it will get low enough for the sensor to shut the motor down. Also make sure the gas is turned on at the carburator.
