Question about Washing Machines

Karcher 615 (bought new in 1994!)

Hi, my karcher recently after many years of good behavior started to...choke!
i called my service and they said its probably a valve...which wasn't very helpful as i opened it up and saw that there were many one way valves...and much dirt too..
they also wanted me to give them 250euro for a full repair....

so my question is...WHAT KIND OF FUEL CAN I USE TO REFILL THE PUMP as it was filled up with oil when i opened it? should i use valvolines that are made for gearboxes or a thicker oil like sae 30??

thank in advance alex...greece

Press. Washer Honda engine gx 390 will not start


did you leave fuel in it from last year, if so remove all fuel from tank, drain carb. (remove float bowl if it doesn't have a drain bolt) put in fresh fuel, check your oil level and you should be good to go. if not, please take it to a qualified tech. for carb. cleaning.

Karcher pressure washer with Honda GC160 engine only runs on chok


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.

Suspected problem with choke.


hey apparently and did are two different stories draining the float bowls and cleaning the carbs are two different things the fact that the choke dosent change suggest the carbs are stopped up after sitting for 1 year clean the carbs let them soak in carb cleaner and blow them out with high pressure air, keep notes of the adjustments befor you dissasemble them (air screws)

% hp Honda Motor runs on choke


Dear LC39B,
Is it possible you are blaming the wrong part of the machine? Did you try the Honda Motor on its own? I am asking , because if the pump of the washer has some fault or a bit jammed, this will demand a lot of power from the Honda. You can try the Honda with no water connection and no gun.
Regarding the Honda motor, you should check the electrical system also. I am saying this because you did not mention it, in your service procedure.
Regards,
MG.

I had the same problem 3 years old, maybe used 10 times - removed the air filter and the washer started fine. The air filter looked fine - I have not tried to replace it or figure out the root cause. I was just happy to get it running again :)

Choke needs to be on all the time


your problem is in the carb. for some reason there is a stoppage or clogg in the venture opening that feeds the main passage to the manifold. that is the little pipe connecting the carb to the engine.the choke being on causes the engine vaccum to **** gas from other resourses in the carb to run. also check to see if throttle butter fly is moving freely.there may be a defect with the carb and they will have to replace. running the engine with choke on causes it to run rich and will foul the plug eventually . also not good on gas . will use way more than it should. also co2 level way up.
