Question about Honda 2500 PSI Gas Pressure Washer

Last year around this time I tried to start my honda 2500psi gas power washer and couldn't get it to turn over. The year before I believe I left some gas in it. I remember I got it to start once or twice but it died real quick. I changed the spark plug and sprayed some engine starting fluid in it. but nothing worked. I can't find anyone who will look at it, they are all backed up. any ideas?

Carburetor is probably gunked up from old gas left in system. It will need some cleaning and / or dissasembly.

Have it repaired at a reputable mower or small engine repair shop. When being stored for long periods, run it out of gas or use a fuel stabilizer in the gas to prevent this from reoccuring.

EM 3500 Will start, then stalls after 30 minutes, starts again and continues to staff after 5 to 10 minutes. Oil is fine.


With regrets, I do not have any personal experience with generator troubleshooting. However, I have been informed by some people that have good experience with them that a generator needs to be run for a couple of hours every month to keep the system in proper order. Should a generator sit idle for ten months, the fuel can actually "shellac" inside the carburetor and lines. This will then travel to areas that will gum up - thus the necessity to drain the tank and carburetor completely.
Here is their advice:

Your service person(s) may not be aware of the time the unit sits idle, and if they are aware - then they are not giving you straight facts (in my opinion). I would suggest contacting Honda customer service directly, and explain this situation to them - they will probably be more then happy to have a technician assist you properly. Contact the 'customer relations' number, and they will direct you from there. Here is the link:

I am sorry I couldn't be of more help.

I cannot get my honda 2500psi pressure washer to start at all i have changed spark plug and do have spark it has good gas in it and plenty of oil but will not start?


Three things needed for engine to run. Fresh fuel, good spark and good compression. I am assuming that water supply is disconnected for now and that you feel good resistance when you pull the rope indicating that there is compession. For now remove/unplug the low oil alert wire (if your model has one). Use carburator cleaner as fuel for now by spraying fuel directly into carb with air filter removed and choke off (do not flood just spray a little then little more if needed, the engine will only begin to run then stop unless you contine to spray fuel). If the engine does not respond most likely timing belt or plastic cam is cause. GCV series honda engines use timing belt with plastic cam gear. Gx series use metal gear. If the engine responds clean carb. Good luck

OUR KARCHER 2600 PSI PRESSURE WASHER W/ HONDA ENGINE WON'T START. WE BOUGHT IT A SAM'S CLUB LAST YEAR AND PROBABLY HAS ONLY BEEN USED ABOUT 4 TIMES. PLEASE ADVISE.


Hello:
Have you tried changing the gas, Especially, if it has been in the machine of a while. Also some Honda engines will not start if the oil is low. Also try removing the high pressure hose before you start it? Do not run it very long without water flowing through the pump, though.

Honda gas power pressure washer runs for awhile then cuts off.


did you pour all of the old gas out before you started to use it. Sometimes condensation builds up in gas tank when stored. You need to dump old gas an put in new gas.
