I had the same problem 3 years old, maybe used 10 times - removed the air filter and the washer started fine. The air filter looked fine - I have not tried to replace it or figure out the root cause. I was just happy to get it running again :)

If there is air in the tanks, it will be harder to crank, drain air out before starting, Also check spark plug. Sometimes i put gas where the plug goes, just a little pinch of gas though. put spark plug back and give it a few cranks.

Engine on powerwasher starts but quits running after approx 10 seconds. Engine oil changed, oil is full & tried choke in various positions. Also has fresh fuel in tank. What else can I do

try cleaning the carb that ethanol plays havoc on these small engines if it is not a premix oil and gas unit add a little 2 cycle engine oil to the gas will keep the carbon builup to a minimum not to much it will gunk up your spark plug take the carb apart and clean it with carb cleaner or deisellet dry check your spark plug make sure it is clean and ok that is where I would start

The mower is turning over but won't start.' My husband is away so i have to solve it myself. its a LTH 1797

Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly.

You must be sitting on the seat to start the unit and.... make sure the engine oil is serviced properly. If the oil level is low the low oil level sensor will ground out the ignition and it will not start. (no spark) If you have a choke... you must use the choke on a cold engine. This is just the basics. If your sure the engine is full of oil and it still will not start have someone help you with a spark test. The spark test is done with the spark plug wire disconnected from the spark plug or the spark plug removed. It is hard to do this test alone as you must be sitting on the seat to get spark. Feel free to ask any questions anytime.

Brand new Honda Generator 2000i will not start. uhhg

Hi and welcome to FixYa I am Kelly.

Things that must be verified.

1. Fuel selector: ON
2. Start run sw: ON
3. Oil Level : Full
4. Choke selector FULL ON for no more than 2 pulls initially The half choke then off
5. Spark at the Spark Plug YES? NO?
a. No spark suspect low oil level sensor is grounding the ignition either due to low oil level or it just is not working properly.

After doing all of the above...

Spark Plug WET or DRY? Dry and still won't start check fuel supply. If you use the choke with the start run switch in the off position the spark plug should get WET. Spark plug does not get wet... with choke on and ignition off. Fuel supply problem.

At this point I suspect either the Oil Level is incorrect or... that the FUEL SELECTOR is OFF.

If you need more help just respond here and we can press on.

2005 honda crf100f motorcycle will not start

If the spark at the plug is goog then its a fuel or choke / air problem .Check to see if the plugs are wet after turning over the engine a few times .you may have a sticky choke that not letting enough air in with the fuel mixture .

I have a honda 1985 xr80 and i need help please answer

start by checking for fuel, and spark, if they are good, then turn the idle screw all the way in, slowley and dont force it, once you got it in all the way then turn it out 3 full turns, as this is a good rule for the idle on first start after a rebuild. if thats not working then check the engine for good compression, you'll need to contact the dealer and ask for a cyl compression spec. If thats the problem the engine will not start no matter how much you tweak it, it will have to be rebuilt. good luck

Buy some starting fluid and spray some in the carb or air cleaner intake port, if the machine is flooding do not choke while using the starting fluid, make sure you do not have too much oil in the mowwer.
