Question about Karcher 2500 PSI Pressure Washer

2 Answers

I have the same problem.

I took the float off and cleaned the jet inlet. Plenty of gas gets to the carb and will start using starting fluid but dies immediately. also changed the spark plug. Unit is almost brand new used about 12 times. Help please.

I hate to disagree but if it starts using starter fluid but doesn't keep going it is most likely a fuel problem. Is it getting air? Is the oil level OK. Some motors have a shut off if the oil is low.

Carberator needs cleaned and idle passages need blown out then put it together and retry if you clean it correctly it should solve the problem. first check to seee if you have a engine kill switch wire thats hitting the ground that will kill the engine too

I would say that the incorrect of use of gasket goo instead of the proper gasket has spilled into the bowl after assembly and is blocking the main jet --again

your problem is a clogged carb. clean float valve, main jet and idle circuit with a can of spray carb cleaner.

disconnect fuel hose at carb and see if gas flows.

reconnect hose and open float bowl drain valve. If no gas tap on side of float bowl with plastic end of screwdirver to free up float.

still no gas? remove float bowl and try to shoot carb cleaner into the fitting for the gas line from tank.

if gas flows now then put it all back together and it should run

if not then remove carb and clean carb passages, main jet, idle circuit.

This sounds like the carb is plugged. Sometimes fuel thickens and makes globs...

If you verified the fuel flow to the inlet of the carb, then you need to take the carb off and open it up....
So, what needs to happen is you blow out all of the passageways with carb cleaner.

Any adjustable jets: make note of the position it is in, and FINGER TIGHT turn it clockwise until it closes (typically 1 to 1 1/2 turns) SOOOOO, you can set this jet back to the same positon....when finished blowing everything out, bottom the jet and back out the number of turns out, noted for that jet.

Open the float chamber, and clean as necessary, Inspect the float adjustment: invert the carb, and observe the angle of the float, relative to the carb body.... Usually almost parallel, but not necessarily.
Inspect the inlet valve, and clean those areas...

I usually use all new gaskets and valves, but if you are not a carb person, cleaning is effective and I think old gaskets may be okay, if not torn or damaged.

Geting fuel to carb. Will run with starter fluid, but dies immediately when I stop the starter fluid.


sounds like the float and needle are not working proper. The float :floats in the gas bowl raising and seating the needle into a jet hole. If the float has quit lifting the needle out, then no gas will come through to reach the carb. This is why you engine runs with carb fluid because you shoot straight into the carb. Try replacing those 2 and clean the carb. It's a simple task and cheap fix.

2002 CR 250-has gas on carb,new plug and only starts with a squirt of starting fluid and dies instantly.


Best would be to clean the carburator, it seems the gas doesn't enter the combustion chamber, the jets could be blocked.
Check the valve clearance too, not bad to take the compression test of the cylinder.
