You need to start the unit and let it run for few minutes to get worm, make sure the water is fully open and the unit is fully cleaned. Push on the trigger on and off for few times not letting the unit shutdown, then start increasing the fuel mixture ¼ turn and push on the trigger again and see…this could be that the unit need service or the governor springs getting week if you got one on your unit…let me know how that work for you and please do not forget to rate my service so we can improve on it with your help.

The rope may be bound up in the recoil. Take the recoil cover off(the piece where the pull rope goes into) and try to pull the rope with the housing off. If it pulls freely try turning the engine by hand, you may want to remove the spark plug to release the compression. If the unit will not turn over,then the pressure pump may have failed. Best of luck.

Pressure washer was working fine then it shut off. and now I cant pull the string


Whoa! Wait when water pressure is at hose you have to pull the trigger on wand to release pressure so the engine can turn freely. It has so much pressure at wand that it will not let you turn enging over. If not It may have froze up. Check the oil first , no oil then it is locked up. If not you can remove pull rope cage and try to turn it manually.

I have a honda gx390 13 horse engine I just put a new pull Rope on it and cleaned the carb its been sitting for 3k10 years when I pull the rope slowly it will turn the engine when I give it a good yank...


This is a common problem. The valves need adjusting in the motor. You may eventually get it started and running in this condition but you will probably end up breaking your pull rope a few times in the process. Take it to someone who works on small engines like a mower repair shop.

I bought a honda pressure washer power boss 3000. I load the gasoline, start the machine, but pressure water is not coming out from the trigger. i tried so many things , but can t get started.


If you are using a water tank for water supply, remove the water supply line from the pressure washer and connect a water hose from a faucet. Turn the water on, then crank the engine. Pull the trigger of the spray gun until water comes out. When then water starts to spray properly the release the trigger, shut engine down with pressure on the line then reconnect the water supply from the tank to the pressure washer. If this fixes the problem then the problem was "air-locked"! Happens alot with new pressure washers that have never been run.

Motorturns over hard with pullstarter on my gx340 pressurewasher


You have a nice setup, lots of power. The honda gx340 has a compression release built into the engine so it should be relatively easy to start. With the pressure pump under load however, it will be very hard to pull the rope. With water connected hold spray gun open so water is running out tip and pull rope to start (for easy start, remove tip from gun) . If it still feels very hard to pull rope while holding gun open, most likely problem with lubrication in pump or engine valves are not adjusted correctly preventing compression release. If you suspect problem, go to store where you purchased the unit or any store that sells gx340 and pull the rope to get a feel of what force is required to start engine and compare to yours. Good luck.

I have honda gcv160 5.5 pressure washer, after sitting over winter, I went to use it, and I can't even pull the cord to try and start it. What are any reccomendations as to what I can do to fix this?


My power washer started doing that after the pull-cord mechanism broke.
I took off the hoses to make sure there was no back-pressure caused by the pump.
And pull rope was still frozen.
We took off the pull rope cover on top of the machine.
The cover came off easy.
After that we lifted out the spring-pulley where the rope is attached the spring unwound and we couldn't get it back together so I bought another one.
We should not have lifted it out ... we should have tried to get it to move first without lifting it up.
In any case the washer worked fine after the replacement.

When you store a power washer, be sure to drain the water and disconnect the hoses.
Don't leave any gasoline in the engine or it will gum up the carburetor.
Never turn a gasoline engine on its side or upside down or the oil will run into carburetor, and carburetor will need work.

I tried to start the pressure washer by lulling the cord, there was sharp popping noise, and the engine would not crank to start. It is a Honda K. washer. What went wrong? Pls advise, thanks.


Make sure your oil level is correct and not overfull. If ok, pull the sparkplug out. Then, pull the starter rope to see if the engine spins freely. If it does, pull it 4-5 more times to clear the cylinder of oil or gas. Put the plug back in and try it again.
However, if the rope fails to pull freely, you either have a locked engine or pump. You will have to seperate the pump from the engine to determine which is locked up.

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.
