You have a poor signal to the spark plug usually caused by a rusty fly wheel found underneath the pullcord casing. clean it with releasing ajent such as wd 40. common when not in use for a while.

SOURCE: Unable to start gas engine on a NorthStar pressure washer

Disassemble and clean the carb. If it ran briefly with the starer fluid then gasoline is not coming through the carb.

Sounds like the unloader is not working correctly. Try replacing it and see what happens.

SOURCE: I have a Karcher 2,600 PSI 2.3 GPM Gas Pressure

Hi I have a similar pressure washer from Kartcher and the same scenario as yours I have owned it for about 2 years and noticed that it was getting harder and harder to start with each time I use it which is months. If your pw has a honda engine on it the likely culprit may be the carbuerator. The main and pilot jets may get clogged up with gunk from dired up gasoline. To see if you have a fuel problem spray a shot of starter fluid into the carberator with the choke open, then close it and try to start. If it runs for about a second and dies, then the carbuerator is at fault and you are not getting fuel into your motor and all you're doing is working out your arm.

You need to remove the carb bowl, then with a small flat screwdriver remove the jet. ( on the side, at the bottom of stem.) take a small wire or toothpick and clean the gunk out of the jet, reassemble and open fuel valve, start, and pat yourself on your back.

Pressure washer stalls out when wand nozzle is released


Remove the hose and run the machine. If the machine works and the flow of water is ok. Start checking the hose for a restriction and trigger. Make sure this is correct before you start taking the pump to bits

How do you start a 19th mtd riding mower


Put your left foot on the clutch pedal and push down all the way on the clutch. Move the throttle lever all the way to the top, this turns on the choke. Turn the key clockwise, to the right, to start the engine. Once the engine has started, move the throttle lever down to turn off the choke. You only need the choke when the engine is cold. If you use the choke while the engine is hot, you can flood the engine (too much gas) and this will fowl the spark plug. If you have flooded the engine, turn off the choke by lowering the throttle lever and try to start the engine a few times. If the engine doesn't start, then you may need to wait 20 to 30 minutes before trying to start the engine again. If the engine still does not start, then you can remove the spark plug to dry and to clean the spark plug. With the spark plug out, turn the key to the start position for 10 seconds, to push out excess fuel and fumes. Replace the spark plug and try starting the engine without turning on the choke.

When is a valve adjustment due on a 06 R1


rate my post for perfect solution
Instructions
    • 1 Open the choke by pulling the choke lever on the left handlebar control toward you. Set the bike on its kickstand, put it in "Neutral" and start it up. Allow the Road Star to warm up for about 10 minutes before continuing with the adjustment procedure.
    • 2 Locate the idle adjustment screw on left side of the bike just below the rider's seat. Twist the adjuster screw clockwise one full turn. This will ensure the bike stays alive so you can adjust it to the proper setting.
    • 3 Close the choke lever and listen to the engine carefully. Twist the idle adjustment screw slowly counterclockwise. You should hear the engine speed start to slow.
    • 4 Twist the idle screw counterclockwise until you hear the engine start to sputter and die. When this happens, stop and turn the screw one half turn clockwise. Your bike should now be idling at the correct speed.

When I start my pressure washer on full choke it works fine when I place choke in wide open position gas runs out of the carburetor.what could be wrong.the engine issas by Briggs and Stratton.


You need to take the float bowl off the carb from the bottom . You haven't given a lot of information about who did what to the carburator but somebody must have screwed with the float pisition for this to be happening . The way all carburtors work is the same you have the float bowl and the floats and on top of the floats is a valve called the needle valve. Now the neddle valve is there to stop the flow of fuel into the float bowl when the engine is not in a high damand cycle for fuel like start up or ideal the choke shuts the air off and gives more fuel at start up .However when the engine is running and the float bowl is being filled by gravity feed from the gas tank the floats will move up do to the amount of fuel in the float bowl and should shut the fuel from the gas tank off to the float bowl until the engine can burn the fuel and drop the float level enough to make the neddle valve open again to supply more fuel for the engine to run correctly its a never ending cycle . You need to adjust the floats and likely clean the carburator don't mess with adjustments there mostly automatic when the engine is running

What would cause a pressure washer to cut off after you pull the handle to get the water started


We used power washers for years

When you pull the trigger, the engine is supposed to accelerate because the back-pressure on the pump is released.

The back-pressure is why you're supposed to keep the gun trigger open when starting the engine. It sounds like you're starting the engine with no water passing through the gun.

Inspect the exhaust port >> if exhaust is clogged with carbon or dirt, then the engine will not run at high speed.

The problem may also be cause by a rusted choke lever. If you notice when a small engine accelerates, the choke lever moves up as the carburetor demands more gas.

Start the engine with water passing through the gun >>> move the choke lever a little bit at a time and see what happens. Keep water going out of the gun. When the surfaces are cool, spray WD-40 on the lever and see if you can free it up. WD-40 is extremely flammable.

If your engine will not fire at all by starting with water passing through the gun, then your gas supply might be limited or your carburetor gummed up. Pull off the rubber gas line that connects to the carburetor and see if gas flows.

Next, pull off the air filter and see if the machine runs good without air filter. You may have clogged air filter.

While the carburetor is exposed, spray WD-40 into carburetor. See if you can get engine up to full throttle while spraying WD-40 into carburetor. Keep spraying the WD-40. Keep the water flowing out of the gun.

If the engine throttles up all the way on WD-40 but won't run without it, then your carburetor is probably gummed up.

Our old power washer won't run with the choke set at full throttle. We just got into the habit of leaving the choke alone. We'd pull off the air filter and spray WD-40 into the carburetor so the engine would spark healthy without messing with the choke at all. And we kept the choke about 2/3 open all the time.

Know combination, but cannot open sentry safe 1250


If you know the combination:

1) Turn the dial to the left a few complete rounds, then stop on 1st number.
2) Turning the dial to the right, pass up the 2nd number once, then stop on it on the next round.
3) Turn the dial to the left directly to the 3rd number then stop.

The handle should open now.
