Question about Honda Quincy 17 - Gallon Air Compressor with 5.5 Hp - G15H17PC3B

1 Answer

I have a Honda GX160 5.5hp that will not start

It is getting gas and has a new spark plug I'm wondering if the next step might be the on/off switch. Is there a easy check for the switch? Or what ever ?

Can't get a brand new little wonder LB900 blower to start


Needs fuel,air and spark.

Inspect "sparkie".See if there is a spark(when grounded),during start.
If so,is the sparkie fouled with fuel or carbon?
Smell the gasoline.If it's bad,it won't run.

Possible carb problem.(Fuel delivery)

Heat the carb w/a hair dryer. That works wonders!

What did the spark plug look like when you first took it out? Was it black/wet/sooty or was it a light tan/gray color. If it was black/sooty, then I would guess you need a coil. I know you said it had a good blue spark when you checked it, but if you poured a little bit of gas in the cylinder and it still wouldn't fire that would be my first place to check. If it ran briefly after you poured a bit of gas in the cylinder and then died, then it's a fuel supply issue. Remove the line that goes from the gas tank to the carb and make sure you have gas at the carb. If you have gas, then I would remove the carburator and take it apart making sure all the jets and passageways are clear. Use carb cleaner and an air attachment and if you still can't get it out, use a small wire to clear things up.

Reassemble and it should run, otherwise report back and we can go to the next step.

Dont know how to start my honda cb 350


First- turn on the gas. wait for it to get to the carb. Next switch on- close the choke, give 1/4 throttle, Kick it - if it's a no start after about 4 kicks - open the choke and give 1/2 throttle and close the gas.(your flooded)- 4 more kicks and check the spark plug for wet fuel or dry. If dry- dip the business of the plug in fuel and try again. Still no start- replace the plug.

If all that fails- you can disconnect the ignition switch and that will separate the wiring from the ignition- be careful here because you can not shut it off with the switch it can be killed with the choke or pull off the ignition wire to the spark plug.

Still no start, do a compression test as it needs at least 80# to fire.

Honda 4 cycle cult wont start. New gas primer primes new spark plug. Won't fire.


Check the start switch and the start switch line. If not broken, check the choke switch and try different settings to start it. Last check the gas line for any cracks. This tiller can be easily be flooded when pushing the prime button..

The caburator has been checked and clean, new gas , oil ok , spark pluk new, still won't start. The small engine mechanic gave up , he is puzzell, my next step is Honda Dealer, but they are expensive, any...


Well, only 2 things, is it getting gas?? Is is getting spark?? Squirt some gas down the cylinder and see if it will fire. Yes? No? If it fires, but won't run, the carb is messed up, or the fuel is not going to the carb. Then check the spark with the plug resting on metal and connected to its wire. If you have no spark, that is what you have to chase down. Sometimes these things sit and the contacts on the alternator rust over, (iron) and don't develop any juice, they have to be cleaned, the coil could be shot. The Carb might have been cleaned, but is it clean? Those jets are finicky. And gas that sits turns into rock. Check it out. Hope this helps.

Sounds like a bad starter or teeth missing of the flexplate or flywheel. Is it a stickshift? Can you push start it?
