The float needle is not closing all the way and fuel keeps leaking in to the carburetor. Replace the needle and make sure the float is not damaged and that the float pin is clean.

Gas leaks out side of pressure washer


Your washer was sitting for a while I suspect. Check the carb and make sure it is tight to the engine. If it is then you will need to take the carb off, careful not to tear any gaskets. Then remove the fuel bowl and clean out all ports. Make sure to clean out the jet as well as I suspect the fuel is clogged in the carb and overfilling. Your needle valve is stuck open and then flooding your carb and spilling out the side of your engine. Make sure your needle valve and float can move freely before reassembling. Good luck

Sounds like debris in the carburettor. The carbs on these are relatively simple things which come apart easily. Check for debris or water in the float-bowl, and ensure both your idle and main jets are clear and you can see daylight through them.

Honda pressure washer 5hp will only run with the choke on. Was running fine for about 1 hour


The problems you describe are usually indicative of a blockage in the fuel system somewhere in the carburator or a damaged gasket that's letting in too much air. With the choke on, the vacuum in the carb goes way up and forces more gas through. Remove the carb and check the gaskets and insulator if it has one. Then check the float bowl for debris and blow out all the passages in the carb.

If it's been sitting for 3 years most likely the carb is gummed up. If it's getting spark, you could try a small shot of starting fluid into the carb. If it runs on this you know it's a fuel problem. Best bet would get all the MOTOR data, and buy a carb kit from you local lawn and garden equipment parts supplier. . Remove carburator and clean and install kit. Use sta-bil when you put it away next time, but even that only works about a year or so.

Won't start


Most likely blocked jets or the fuel switch isn't turned on or blocked. Check the tank to make sure the fuel is clean, new fuel is a good place to start. Then work your way to the carb cleaning as you go.

I have a excell 2600 honda 5hp gc 160.It has not been used for over a year. I empted the old gas out & put in new gas. It will start but when I push the choke in it shuts off.


A couple of things....

Clean the air filter and make sure it is dry.

Check for any springs that have come off of the linkage.

With compressed air, blow out the carburetor.

Clean and clear out the fuel tube from the tank to the carb housing.

Be sure you have proper oil level.

Out of what you have said...it is something in the carburetor....probably needs a flushing with air.

Give it a try and post back!

Honda Pressure Washer HP 5 not starting


You can try spraying some carburetor cleaner into the carb. If it starts for a minute, your carburetor need cleaning. When you added new gas did you remove the old gas first? Is the air filter clean?

% 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.
