If it acts like this with the hoses disconnected, I would guess that either you got bad gas, or if it was sitting for a while before this, that there is varnish in the carburetor and when the choke goes off it starves for fuel. I would try Seafoam or Gumout to dissolve it before taking it apart and mechanically cleaning it. If it only does it with the hoses attached, it may be an unloader valve in the unit that is sticking. Good luck.

Why does the Honda GX160 engine start to pulse after running pressure washer for a few minutes then finally kills?


Hi pulsing is usually a sign of insufficient water flow to the unit.
always get the largest water hose you can for the feed and check to see if your water system can keep up (if it is a three gallons per min machine grab a bucket and make sure you are getting at least 3 gallons per min before you plug the machine in.
The number one culprit for bad flow is the ez hoses or retractable hoses.

Why is there no water flow through on pressure washer?


Sounds like a pump failure. Does yours freeze in winter? Need to winterize like cabin plumbing.
Repair/replacement of pump could be close to new unit.

All outflow stops when I start the motor on my Troy-bilt 2600 pressure washer. What's up?


Could also be crack/leak in HP pump. If it were left in cold weather without antifreeze, I'd check there first. Part + labor might warrant new washer if more than a couple years old.
Sorry.

This is two things. One is the back flow check valve to the soap line is leaking. The other is the pressure switch on the output side of the pump.

Make sure screen where hose attaches is clean for proper water flow to sprayer, make sure you have good flow from hose supplying water to sprayer. Turn water supply on, and hold handle down to spray, before turning on and see if it helps.

KOHLER HYDRO 13 When pressure washer engine is


first sheck the inlet screen where the garden hose attaches,if there is water flow then see if it has a manual pressure regulator, this will be a knurreled knob somewhere on the intake manifold of the pump, ifyou have one, turn it clockwise and see if there is a difference. If still no luck, disconnect the high pressure hose from the pump, start it and see if warer flows at that point, Your gun may be clogged or your hose may be delaminating on the inside and need to be replaced. If all this fails I suggest you bring it to an expert. These pumps can require special tools and expertise to repair internally

Pressure washer starts then shuts down in 2 seconds


hey mate,

It sounds like your bypass valve/unloader valve is sticking when pressure builds up in the lance,hose and head the pressure cleaner changes to a recirculate mode so it does not blow out hoses or seals or causes any damage to the unit, the bypass valve is the component that activates this sequence if that valve is stuck it will just try to continue to create pressure which in turn puts load on the engine and stalls it...

That is why it starts up straight away and only when it builds up pressure is when the engine stalls.

You would be best taking this to a qualified pressure cleaner technician as there are alot of little parts and orings plus the the head will need cleaning up and the bypass valve lubed, they may not of seen this at the service as it is hard to test a unit without the suited hose and lance... Often use will help this problem when a unit sits for a period of time that will cause issues such as this!!!

Regards
Brad:)
