Theres a possibility that the engine is seized !! try taking the pullcord casing off and turning by hand. If it don't turn it's broke - for good!!

Honda GC190 can't pull starter cord


This is a problem with GC-160 and GC-190 engines on pressure washers, tillers, etc. Once they get some hours on them and as things seat in-wear in, they get to a point you can not pull the start cord. If you remove the spark plug, the engine turns easily then the valves need adjusted. The valves are set .005" to .006" off the seat. This allows enough compression release but the engine runs. I find the valves need adjusted every 25 hours, not the 100 hours Honda states.

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..

I tried to start the pressure washer by lulling the cord, there was sharp popping noise, and the engine would not crank to start. It is a Honda K. washer. What went wrong? Pls advise, thanks.


Make sure your oil level is correct and not overfull. If ok, pull the sparkplug out. Then, pull the starter rope to see if the engine spins freely. If it does, pull it 4-5 more times to clear the cylinder of oil or gas. Put the plug back in and try it again.
However, if the rope fails to pull freely, you either have a locked engine or pump. You will have to seperate the pump from the engine to determine which is locked up.

Starter cord wont pull


Try removing your spark plug, you could have fuel on top of the piston or even "vapor lock". If that doesnt work try squeezing the trigger of gun/wand as you pull.

Motor seems to be locked up!!!!!!!!


It may be your engine, but it may also be the water pressure. Try this: Hold the trigger down while pulling the recoil starter. This acts as an unloader for the pressure washer, and may allow the engine to turn over. There is also an oil level in the pump as well as the engine. Check both levels.
Just a thought, but I've been there. Best regards, W/D

It won't stay running


You need to either clean the carb really good (take it apart) or rebuild it or both. Sounds like your needle is gummed up and not letting fuel through.
