SOURCE: % hp Honda Motor runs on choke

Dear LC39B,
Is it possible you are blaming the wrong part of the machine? Did you try the Honda Motor on its own? I am asking , because if the pump of the washer has some fault or a bit jammed, this will demand a lot of power from the Honda. You can try the Honda with no water connection and no gun.
Regarding the Honda motor, you should check the electrical system also. I am saying this because you did not mention it, in your service procedure.
Regards,
MG.

SOURCE: engine won't turn over

Pull the spark plug back out and try to turn the engine over. If it doesn't move then the engine is probable seized. Was the engine oil res. full of oil and was the color acceptable.

SOURCE: Honda motor only runs with choke fully on.

Lets back up and regroup on the carb cleaning.

Before you start.... if you have a digital camera take "close up" PICTURES of the linkages and springs attaching to the carb. If this is your first time you will be so glad you did. You can always delete them later if you don't need them. :)

Here is what you need to do:

1. Fuel selector off
2. Remove float bowl mounting screws and nut
3. Remove the BRASS Jet / Orifice in the very bottom of the venturi tube inside the pickup tube. (Flat blade screwdriver) Hold the Orifice up to the light. You should see a pinhole. If it is not clear clean the orifice but do not force anything through the hole.
4. Underneath the Orifice there is yet another BRASS tube that you need to remove. (Flat blade screwdriver) Make sure all of the holes in the tube are clear. The tube will be over 2 inches long. Clean it and reinstall it.
5. Reinstall the Orifice.
6. Using a catch fuel container turn on the fuel selector. Fuel should flow at a good rate. GENTLY lift the float assy level and make sure fuel flow shuts off. When you drop the float again fuel should flow.
If you do not have fuel flow at this point the needle and seat will need to be inspected. Fuel selector OFF.
(The following procedure is to be done only if there is no fuel flow with fuel selector on.)
a. Remove the silver float pivot pin retaining screw
b. Drop the Float down (The needle will come off with the float. NOTE the position)
c. Inspect the tapered rubber of the needle If should be pointed. If it is not pointed then the rubber tip is stuck inside the seat.
d. Clean the seat hole ONLY if obstructed. (Easily damaged)
e. FUEL Selector on then off fuel should rapidly flow through the needle seat.
f. Renistall Float and needle making sure to get the pivot / hinge pin installed correctly and reinstall the silver retaining screw.
g. Fuel selector ON. Raise and lower float checking for free movement with fuel flow when lowered and stopped when the float is raised level.

NOTE if fuel does NOT stop when float is level you will need to bend the float tab (tab up if level is too high or tab down if level is too low) where the needle attaches to the float assy until it does.

7. If there still is no fuel flow at this point remove the fuel hose from the carb and check fuel flow. If no flow check that gas tank exit hole, fuel filter (if installed) and the selector valve assy for obstructions.

Reassemble connections.

FUEL FLOW IS GOOD

Step 8 is VERY important"

8. BEFORE you install the float bowl inspect the bowl nut. There are 2 holes in the side of the nut where it screws in to the bottom of the carb that must be clear.

9. Install Float bowl mounting screws and nut. Check for leaks.

10. Test engine.

That should do it.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Kelly

Final note... if it does NOT start after this there are other problems we can discuss. i.e compression and spark "how to."

I have a Honda 5 hp XR2600 presser washer, I have trouble keeping it running without the choke on. It starts right up, but it need the choke on to keep running.


I would try empting the gas out of the tank just to make sure you don't have some water in the gas. If that doesn't help you have a carburator that needs to be cleaned or maybe rebuilt.

Honda 10001 does not run with choke open runs great when choke partly closed clean carb, new gas


Did you check the air filter air restriction would make it do that . Its eighter that or you need to take the carburator off get a can of carb cleaner with the plastic nozzle take it apart and spray out all of the venturies and the main jet clean every thing good . Know this all carburators work exactly the same they may look a little differant but once there off idle its an automatic system the adjustments don't matter that much and the passages are small all it takes is a monor restriction in one of them to give you a problem . The good news is you don't have to buy any parts if its not the air filter clean it and it will work like new note where the adjustments set by the number of turns out from the stop most you will not be able to change the idle is nornaly set 1 and a 1/4 to 1 and 3/4 out from the stop or complete shout off and check to neddle valve to make sure its sealing good its the one that rides on the top of the float and shuts the fuel off to the float bowl from the tank when the bowl is full if this seal leaks it will flood the engine with fuel this could also be the problem . In ganeral look for things that look dirtyif its clean it will work

running rich will make it run colder.....I wouldn't run it anymore til you find theproblem, it will burn your valves. air leak in your intake/carb is more than likely your problem , check for cracks in the intake manifold , leaking gaskets

It will start on full choke and run for about 5 seconds and shuts off. I changed oil because it was black. It did same thing a year ago and shop said the fuel line was blocked? I ran it for about 25...


first if its a honda,is it a gas/oil mix as the gas/oil mix plugs up quicker than a 4 cycle engine ?even 4 cycle engines that get bad gas i.e. water in the gas will plug up the carburator from rust, white rust(from water minerals) corrosion,dirt,etc.,when its running and just as it dies out,pull out the choke and see if it picks back up in r.p.m.'s,if it does,then you know its lacking fuel from starvation from plugged fuel lines/carb to keep running,then you need to re-build the carburator or you could first try a can of carb cleaner while its running down into the carburators intake,but this is a tell-tale sign of a bad/dirty carb,try this,with a small wrench,pull off the carburarors "sediment bowl" located just ubder the carbs body and carefully unscrew the brass nut and remove this bowl(careful to NOT lose the gasket) and see how moch water/dirt,etc., is in the bowl if theres water it will look like droplets in the gas in there,if you have this contamination you need to clean out both the gas tank and carburator and all fuel lines leading to and from these to the engine

I can't start my honda lawnmower, checked the oil, put new gas use choke,it gives litle sound but not enough to start


Try a touch of starting fluid right into the carburator by taking the air filter off. If it then starts but wont run or stay running, the reservoir below the carb should be removed to clean at and the pinhole in the intake tube above the bowl nut. This is the most common problem with lawnmower start problems, the pinhole can be unplugged with one wire from a wire brush. Be careful with the gas, at least pinch off the gas hose with a vise grips while removing the carb bowl.. Never use a droplight around gasoline. most lawnmowers have no mixture adjustments, so it is a matter of cleaning the carb, tank, gas lines. Some oils in gas mix systems settle and clog after less than one season. Spark can be tested by sight, remove the plug and use a clip-on ground wire from spark plug body to metal on the engine with the plug wire connected.

being a splitter its probably been sitting a while so the carburator is probably gummed up to see if its the carburator take off the air filter a spray some starter fluid with choke off it should fire right up then will die but it will tell if its the carburator thenwe will go from there

Sumthing is wrong with the carburator


hi,
to get a good combustion inside the engine, you(engine) needs fuel-air mixture, since it leaks fuel the mixture is too rich on air. Where does the carb leak? maybe it's just the connection that leaks...I mean where the fuel line connects to the carb, If it leaks there it also sucks in extra air instead of fuel, and therefor the engine doesnt run smooth, choke or no choke, that makes no difference. Check that and if it leaks there just change out the fuel line with a new hose.
It could also be the little rubber ring that seals of the carb, If it leaks from the top of the carb...it's the little ring. Take off the top of the carb and check the condition of the ring, if faulty.. replace it with a new one.
Hope this helps....can be pretty dangerous riding around with a leaking carb... Good luck, Gilbert.
