You need to keep the gun open so allowed water to flow and not overpressure the pump.

Engine starts then stalls after 3 or 3 minutes of spraying. Then when I try to restart pull cord is really hard to pull.


When starting make sure you pull the handle to spray so it relieves the pressure from the pump an engine

I cant pull the cord, everything seems to be frozen


It is possible the motor is seized or the pump component has jammed. The Honda Motor usually has an oil minder(wont start if low oil). So that being the case you may have a problem with the pump. If you are handy and have internet it is possible to download a parts/repair manual for the type of pump involved. Otherwise take it to a repair shop. Sometimes these pressure washers are more costly to fix as compared to a new one..

Crank pull cord doesn't pull out on honda pressure washer.. The machine is only 3 months old


if the fuel tap has been left on it may have fuel on top of the cylinder and would not able to pull cord.
if so take the spark plug out and turn over,fuel may come out of hole.replace spark plug and try to start. if it still won't turn over,you will need to take the face plate off the motor. remove and inspect if there is any foreign objects. try to turn motor over by hand., grab on to fly wheel & turn. if it moves freely it may be the pull start it-self. try pulling the cord out. if no problem assemble and try to start.

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!

The motor's pull start seems locked. How do I


Usually what I do first is pull the pump off the engine. After doing that use your hand to back the motor's shaft up about a quarter turn. Then without the pump on try to start the motor. If it starts put the pump back on and try to run it. Sometimes the crank and piston get set just perfectly so you cant pull it over. If that doesn't work post here again and I will help you further.

The cord we pull to start the washer machine is stuck


So it's stuck out? If so loosen the recoil assy's bolts and it will snap back once it's loose enough. This usually happen due to bent recoil cover, swelling of the pull rope, or too much pull rope in the recoil (length).

Or it stuck in and won't pull over. If so remove the spark plug and see if it will pull. Keep away from the spark plug oil since if the unit is flooded with fuel or oil it will shoot out of the hole and cover you with it. If it does not pull over without the spark plug in, there is a 90% chance your motor is blown.

Let me know what you find
