You can check for spark by unscrewing the spark plug , place the rubber boot back on the plug and have someone gently pull the starter rope while you hold the electrode of the plug so that it touches the engine block. make sure not to touch any part of the plug or you will get a shock! only hold the plug by the rubber boot! while a helper pulls the rope you should see a spark in the electrode of the plug if you have it grounded against the engine case. if you have spark then try spraying a little starter fluid in the spark plug hole or the air cleaner. either will work and should get it to fire if it has spark. if it starts and then shuts off, your carb is probably gunked up.

Why doesnt my powerwasher pump out water

check for a blocked jet in the end of the wand ( squashed hoses or blocked hose to the wand)

The starter pull cord on my gas trimmer will not pull.

Hi Mark
Perhaps a bit late now.... Just spotted this so I imagine it's all fixed by now.
But for others with this sort of problem.
Assuming the pull cord is not broken, stuck or tangled. Switch off or short plug to ground, for safety then remove the spark plug to allow the engine compression to escape. You should be able to turn the engine over really easy with the pull rope, otherwise the engine might be seized or the rotary pull mechanism jammed.
Also... can the shaft to the string line be rotated as in the crankshaft of the engine.
Good Luck

Unplug the spark plug.
Try to turn the blade by hand, be sure to use a heavy glove to protect your hand from the sharp edge.
If the blade turns, then move it back and forth to free it up.
If it won't turn, take the spark plug out and try to turn the blade .
If it won't turn, you may need the engine overhauled.
If it will turn, put a level teaspoon of light oil in the spark plug hole, and turn the blade a few times.
Now try the pull rope.
If it works, put a level teaspoon of fresh gasoline in the spark plug hole and install the spark plug.
It should start
Be blessed.

My trimmer will not start and has a mixture of gas and oil all over the air filter and now the pull sting won't pull please help

Take the air filter out and clean it. Then, remove the spark plug and try to pull on the pull string. If you can't turn over the engine with the plug removed, then disassembly to reach the starter/recoil unit will be required.if you can turn the engine over, pull on the starter several times to dispel any raw unburned gas/oil fuel. You possibly have other fuel or spark related issues, but we need more information to give any diagnosis or solutions.

I can not pull the string to start the engine of power washer

Try removing the spark plug then pulling the cord! If the cord pulls then you cycle the engine a couple of time to see if fuel is coming out of the spark plug hole! If no fuel present replace spark plug and try starting the engine. always have water running through your washer before you attemp to start!

Take the spark plug out, connect it back to the wire, and rest it so it is touching metal, Pull the cord and see if you see a spark. If you see a spark that means you are not getting gas. Put a few drops in the hole and replace the spark plug. Pull the cord with the choke off a couple of times and it should fire up briefly. If this is the case you will have to clean out the bowl and gas supply lines.

You may have to take out the carb and get it cleaned / air-blown out. Looks like some little valve is stuck. Also make sure you are getting enough sparks at the plug tip. If you have left it long in a damp place it may take several pulls on the cord for the engine to fire-up and run. Try spraying some WD-40 into the cylinder through the plug-hole. Then pull the cord again. After a few pulls remove the plug again, and put like a spoonful of clean 10/30W engine oil into the cylinder, and keep pulling the cord until you see some smokes at the exhaust. If the engine fires up and run a few minutes, but stops later. The engine might be out due to incorrect oil/fuel misture.
