Question about Homelite Garden
A couple of things to check.. some rather obvious.
Assuming you have followed all the directions.. removed the pump vent plug before first use.. have a hose attached.. pressed the trigger on the wand to make sure you have water flowing etc.
Check to make sure the fuel valve is turned to ON.. fully..
If you Over filled the gas tank.. remove some of the petrol.. it should not be filled to the top...
Hopefully you put the correct amount and right type of oil into the crankcase.. again do not overfill the crankcase..
The fuel on most Homelite pressure washers is regular unleaded gasoline. NO E85 fuel should be used. Certainly no premixed gasoline for two cycle engines.
Check Choke position.. to start place in Cold Start or ON.. once started let it run for about 5 or ten seconds.. move it back to RUN..
If you ran it too long with the choke on you probably fouled the spark plug..
Remove it and clean it carefully.. if it is wet.. and all black.. it's fouled.. let it dry out.. clean it up properly (careful to not change the gap) replace and try again.
Lastly if you live in a neighborhood.. there is almost always a fellow nearby that is good with smalle engines.. ask around.. these guys are always happy to fiddle with these motors.
Best of luck to you!
