Question about Karcher 2500 PSI Pressure Washer

Open Question

Honda gc160 won't run.

Stored my karcher pressure washer over the winter and now it won't run. Will start if I spray carb cleaner in the carb intake but dies after a few seconds. Will continue to run as long as I continue to spray carb cleaner in the intake but dies as soon as I stop the priming. All this while water hose is connected but without wand and hose, just letting water spray continuously out the high pressure side of the pump. Looks like I need to drain the old fuel, check the fuel filter and probably take the carb off and clean the tubes like described in another post. Just want to make sure as I've already removed the carb and float bowl and sprayed carb cleaner in the jets but this did not solve the problem. Any advice?

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.

Excell pressure washer honda motor---have fuel flow---fresh---only runs when carb cleaner sprayed--then dies..........


Sounds like the carb is badly clogged internally. If you can remove it yourself, you can soak it overnight in a can of carb cleaner. But keep in mind some of the internal passageways in the carb are as fine a human hair and soaking may not work, it which case go to plan B, new carb. Last resort you could try to find cleaners small enough to get in the passageways of the carb, I've heard of people using wire brush bristles for example. Today's gas is terrible, it does not take long to gum up the carb, if it sits for any time.

Pressure washer with Honda Engine GC160 only run with choke fully closed.


The carb is clogged. It needs to be cleaned, or replace. Keep in mind some of the carb passageways are as small as a human hair so they are difficult to clean which is why I mention replacing. You can try using carb cleaner etc in the gas, but I don't think it will work if you need the choke that much.

Honda GCV160 Engine Won't Start


Hello
You should siphon out all the old gas you can. Replace with new gas. Check that the spark plug is good and the air filter is clean. Spray some carb cleaner in the carburetor.. Also, you should check the oil level and change the oil if it is black. If it tries to start after you spray the carb cleaner in but won't keep going then you know the carburetor needs a good cleaning

I have a problem with my karcher 2500 pressure washer with honda engine it will not start or stay running. I have used starting fluid to start it it starts but won't stay running.


Carb is mostly likely gummed up and should be cleaned. Best option is to dismantle the carb and soak in solvent or equivelant for a couple hours and replace it. Our use Gum Out. Do make sure you have a good spark plug and a strong spark. If you have a fuel filter, then replace it. Check intake filter as well

Won't run at a constant speed.


Your carbeurator is gummed up. Put some carbeurator cleaner additive in your fuel, making sure that it is fresh gasoline, not gas that has been sitting in a can all winter. Also, spray some carb. cleaner into the air intake which is accessable by removing the air filter. Finally, if the air filter is dirty, replace it. happy power washing!
