I have a Karcher pressure washer w/ a 5hp Honda engine. It only will run while the choke is pulled out and only runs at about half the rpm's. When the choke is pushed in.. it coughs, sputters and shuts off. Can you tell me how to fix this....

Try removing the air filter to see if it solves the problem.
If that works replace or clean the air filter.

Engine runs fine. But it quits when I pull the trigger on the wand to start washing


Does this behavior change if the engine is warm and on minimum choke? Do you get any water spray before the engine quits? Carburetor could be dirty or float stuck. Try putting dose of carburetor cleaner through engine and cycle choke lever and engine speed lever back and forth while engine is running after it has warmed up without running water spray. See owners manual.

Where is the choke on a Brigg-stration model 580-752920 engine?


Hello,
This particular model is called a readystart engine, they do NOT have a primer or choke, if you are having fuel troubles starting there could be a blockage in the carburettor or fuel filter.

Hope this helps

Ridgid pressure washer motor runs choppy when choke is disengaged


The choke reduces the air flow into the carb. If you are having problems with the choke off, it means that not enough fuel is getting into the engine and it is running lean. When you choke it, the reduced air flow causes the mixture to be correct and it runs fine.

Pressure washer stalls off choke


Probably the carb's low/mid speed circuits are clogged real bad. The only fix I know if they are as bad as you describe is remove and soak/clean carb, and this may not work as some of the circuits are as fine as as human hair, and the solvent may or may not work. Then it' replacement time.
