Question about Karcher 2500 PSI Pressure Washer
I Just bought a Thatcher with a Honda 5.5hp engine. It is practically brand new less than 10 hours, but has been sitting for the past four years in a garage. It starts right up but will only stay running with the choke on. Would appreciate any advice. Thanks Miguel
Gasoline these days has a very short shelf life (three to four weeks)
have your crb. cleaned by a quilified tech. and be sure to remove all fuel from your engine and gas tank if you intend to leave it for longer than a month. (it won't go bad if it isn't there)

And owned by a little old lady who only used it after church?
clean/change and re oil the air filter( very light machine oil and sparingly, just a few drops not a soaking), Change the oil in the sump if its a 4 stroke. check the settings on the air intake screws
make sure you are using fresh fuel,
clean and replace the plug . Finally check the float level in the carburretor it could be stuck or has a hole in it and is not set correctly. If you are unskilled in this it is better to have a lawn mower mechanic to assess it for you. Cheaper in the long run.
