I get this question a lot, and 9 times out of 10 the reason it because there is pressure in the pump. After the unit shut down did you pull the trigger to release all the pressure from the pump before attempting to restart? When these units have pressure in the pump they are near impossible to pull start.

When pulling cord to start it pulls hard take plug off its easy can't get it to start

Sounds like it seized or is starting to. I would put a little two stroke oil in the cylinder about 20cc maybe a little bite more 50cc if it is really hard to pull.... Leave The plug out and pull on it about 30 seconds hopefully when the plug is back in it will run... goodluck. If its really tight needs to be rebuilt....

When I try to start my gas-powered pressure washer, its very hard to pull the crank and I cannot start the motor.

When everything is working correctly, and your washer has an easy start valve, (easy start valve will allow you to start the machine with-out having to hold open the trigger) the engine should pull easily. Some washers do not have easy start and you must hold open the trigger on the wand to unload the pressure in the pump. If you are holding open the valve and still have difficulty, remove the water supply and pressure hose and let out all the water. If still hard to pull most likely something has failed or pump is low/out or lubricant. If lubricant is ok, try reducing the pressure adjustment to minimun and try starting. If it is now easy to pull, problem is related to pressure regulator /unloader valve. Try adding oil to water inlet and let the oil displace out all the water within the pump and let it set for a while. Good luck

I have a wild thing. the rope pull starter is very hard to pull. when i take the spark plug out it is easy to pull. the saw was not used for about 4 years until yesterday. it ran for about 45 minutes fine....

one piston ring has expanded now having no or a very fine gap increasing the compression ratio causing this to happen. When the spark plug is removed it is very easy to pull on the cord in any means. A inspection is due of this engine or a new chain saw is needed

Have a snapper mower.son put 2 cycle mixed fuel in it and ran it for about 5 minutes. Now wont start. Drained and replaced fuel and changed plug. What next?

the gas sitting in the carb is "still" 2-stroke...there's a bolt on the bottom of the carb...DON"T remove it, just loosen it til the gas leaks out (about 30 seconds or so)...that is letting the 2-stroke gas out and letting in the right gas...make sure the bolt is snug..NOT TIGHT...and giver a few choking is needed since it's already flooded from pulling on'll smoke a bit and run a little rough, until it burns the oil mix residue out of the muffler...Now get a Sharpie & mark the cans... 8^)

When you pull the bowl off of your carb is it clean? If not you have some contamination possibly inside. You might want to remove the carb and blow compressed air through all the vents a ports.

New lawn boy mower pull cord will not pull. Worked first 2x

Did you check the oil before you ran it. They usually come dry and you have to but oil in before running. Sounds like motor might be blown.

Pumped up bulb, never does get firm, engine will run 30 seconds

You need a firm bulb. There is a checkball in the gas coupler. There should also be a float valve in the carburetor. If you have a friend with the same brand of motor (or a boat shop) it is easy to attach your tank to a different motor. If your tank will now give you a firm bulb, the floatvalve in your motor is bad.
If the bulb will not get firm with the test motor its your line. They are not expensive <$20.
