Question about Honda Maxus Pressure Washer MX5222

1 Answer

Honda XR2750 only runs on full choke

If I tried to take off choke, engine immediately dies. The pressure washer has sat for at least 6 month. After running for about 10 minutes, it now won't stay running, even on full choke.

    Is it possible to spray a carb cleaner into the choke area, short of a carb rebuild? I'm reasonably mechanical, but have never taken a carb apart. Thanks. Lynn

    Thank you. As you suggest, I'll take my time and take a few pictures.

    i would start by just removing the bowl and clean it, if there is a green or brown deposite in there the whole carb may need cleaning



    they are fairly simple. just have a table to do the disassemble on and take you time



    just remember how it came apart(if it helps take pictures) and don't spray cleaner on any part that isn't metal



    i'm afraid carb cleaner in the choke won't solve your problem



    good luck

Why does Honda GX340 die immediately despite fresh gas, cleaned carb, and new plug?


Perhaps you haven't adjusted the carburetor correctly.The fuel supply orifice could be still plugged . Recheck the carb.

My pressure washer just stopped while working, why?


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

Engine dies after 6 seconds


Hi Anonymous, your carb is gummed up. Go to Yamaha and buy some carb dip they make the best. Remove your carb, strip it down and follow carb dip instructions. If you need a service manual you can download one for $6.50 at the website below:

My Honda XR2750 pressure washer doesn't seem to be spraying a full capacity. Is there a blockage and /or filter I can clean?


Usual cause is the water admitance valve that regulates the pressure by admitting more or less water.

Remove the valve parts and clean the bore with crocus cloth on a dowel rod. Replace the O rings and lube with plumber's grease.

Re-assemble.

Won't start, can't remember starting procedures and dont have manual


Make sure the fuel valve is on. Generally that means pointing down inless there is a diagram on it.

Turn the switch on.

Pull the choke on the carbuerator on full. There will be a picture of a butterfly valve set it so that it is closed. Pull the cord till the engine fires. let it sputter for a second, then open the choke. If the engine dies right away, do all of the above again but once it fires, only open the choke half way. once it warms up a bit open the choke completely.
