Question about Homelite RIDGID 3000 PSI 26 GPM CAT Pump Pressure Washer RD80903

1 Answer

Subaru Rigid 3000 PSI pressure cleaner will start and run for a few minutes in choke position only. then must sit for an hour before it will start again. I drained gas it appears not to be getting gas as if the feed line is blocked. With the bowl off and float down no gas comes out. Is it possible that the gas in the fuel line jelled, the pressure cleaner was not run for about 6 months?

It is more likely that the crappy 10% ethanol gas ate the fuel line up and turned it to mush.

Run some carburetor cleaner through it first. Go to autozone, etc, and pick up some fuel system cleaner you can put directly in the tank and run it through.

Motor will start on choke setting and then it immediately dies when moving the choke lever to the run position. Cleaned carb, new plug new air cleaner and checked all linkages. the motor has new oil and...

You say you cleaned the carb. If you did that by spraying cleaner in through the choke, that's good, but it doesn't get to the root of the problem. The problem is getting the gas into the carb. Try this. drain the gas. Put a small amount of carb cleaner and gas in the tank (about 1:1) Start it up, but don't run it dry. Let it sit for an hour. Then start it up and run the tank dry. Then try just a little gas to see if that fixed it. If not, repeat. Good luck Al K

190 honda engine only runs on choke?

pour a large amount of carburator cleaner into the gas tank
run the engine for five minutes then shut it off and let it sit for a couple of days.
then start it and see if it runs any better
the longer you let it sit with the carb cleaner in it, the better it should run

Hello. Your carburator is gummed up. Get a can of seafoam fuel additive at the auto parts store and put the recommended amount into the gas. This will clear up the problem in just a few minutes. Joe
