Question about Garden
I have a 4hp north star pressure washer, used a few times. it starts and idles fine, as soon as a load is put on the washer the motor stalls out. is the pump seized from lack of use? i pulled the pump off and there were some minor calcium deposits in the pump.

SOURCE: wont start
tip a cap full of fuel in top of the carb to start intitially, check for spark as common fault is on/off switch, If no spark, link the 2 wires on on/off switch together.

This may not be a motor problem. It sounds like your pump is not working properly and the motor is just following the pump. First thing to do is check for leaks in the pump, wand hose, gun etc. It may also be a blown water seal inside the pump.

You need to start the unit and let it run for few minutes to get worm, make sure the water is fully open and the unit is fully cleaned. Push on the trigger on and off for few times not letting the unit shutdown, then start increasing the fuel mixture ¼ turn and push on the trigger again and see…this could be that the unit need service or the governor springs getting week if you got one on your unit…let me know how that work for you and please do not forget to rate my service so we can improve on it with your help. God bless

Testimonial: "The problem was the governor spring. Thanks"
I had the very same problem and nobody could help me until I was talking with a co-worker. Its a very easy fix. I couldn't believe it. I did this yesterday and it ran like a charm. You can either replace the head gasket or just by a good sealer to use on your existing gasket or replace it. I use Indian head gasket sealer on mine. The bolts on the bottom were lose causing a loss of compression. If you need more info you can email me (for free) and I will tell you exactly how to do it. Agr8flson@aol.com
