First you should get a new spark plug which might solve the problem. If it still won't start what I normally do with chainsaws, lawnmowers etc is to remove the spark plug and pour about 5ml (one teaspoonful) of fuel into the opening. Dip the spark end of the plug into fuel so the spark gap is wet and replace the plug in the saw. Try starting it now. The fuel you poured in should ignite and may be enough to start the saw. You may have to repeat the process 2 to 3 times. Don't be tempted to use more than 5 ml of fuel or you'll flood the saw.

I hope this solves your problem.

Try a new air filter. Sitting over the winter months allows the filter to swell and close itself up. Although it looks good, it will starve the engine for air.

Hard starting no fuel primer noise


Hi Jack:
You don't mention make or model so all I can do is relate 50 years of personal experience.
None of the chain saws that I have owned have had a fuel primer.
This has been (and continues to be for my Husky 266) my start routine. Current saws don't have compression release.
- prep includes fill fuel and oil tanks, check chain sharp and tension, bar tip lube.
- Ignition switch on
- Choke full on
- Throttle full and lock set.
- Pull starter cord *(266 takes 3 pulls, Homelite took 6) until engine fires. If I'm fast I can get the choke off before it dies, otherwise
- Choke off, Pull starter cord. Engine should start with 1 or 2 pulls.
Hope this helps.

I have a honda pressure with a honda 160 motor.ran great yesterday but today will not stay running and very hard too pull almost pulled my arm off from back pressure.replaced plug checked oil also checked...


did you forget to shut off the fuel before moving your pressure washer? It sounds like the engine is flooded. Honda GX engines are famous for flooding with the fuel valve left on when moving. Or did you store it in a tilted position? Take the spark plug back out and pull the pull rope a few times...you should see the gas that flooded ejected from the plug hole. Once you feel you got all the gas out, replace the plug. You may want to check your oil and make sure it isn't full of gas now also. If it is good, or you have changed your oil then start it up....It should not have the resistance anymore and should start just fine. Good luck

I'll guess and say that the carb flooded the engine and you have hydro lock.Pull the sparkie and clear the extra fuel.

Ran last year, won't start this year. Changed fuel and replaced spark plug. Checked spark and attempted to start with battery and tried with pull cord but no start. pulled plug and it had fuel on it so...


It might have tipped over on its side. Look at the air filter, if you see oil or gas on the filter then you might have to remove and clean the carburetor. I would start by cleaning/replacing the air filter and trying it again. If its getting fuel and the spark plug works then the only other side of the fire triangle is air.

Cannot start saw because of compressionon engine, cannot pull cord because of compression. saw is a jonsered model 670.


Not being able to pull the start cord because of "compression" is usually a sign that the cylinder head is full of fuel and/or oil. Take the spark plug out and try to pull again. look at what is in the cylinder, fuel mix or chain oil. If the engine turns over, pull several time to clear the cylinder. Clean the plug and put it back. Gas/oil in the cylinder means it is leaking into the crankcase. If it is chain oil in the cylinder, there most likely is a crack in the crankcase. If it fuel look for a leak the allows the fuel to get into the crankcase when it is stored.

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.

I have a Karcher 2,600 PSI 2.3 GPM Gas Pressure Washer G 2600 VHR that I have used once last summer. I have stored the PW in my basement with no fuel in the gas tank. The PW was never exposed to freezing...


Hi I have a similar pressure washer from Kartcher and the same scenario as yours I have owned it for about 2 years and noticed that it was getting harder and harder to start with each time I use it which is months. If your pw has a honda engine on it the likely culprit may be the carbuerator. The main and pilot jets may get clogged up with gunk from dired up gasoline. To see if you have a fuel problem spray a shot of starter fluid into the carberator with the choke open, then close it and try to start. If it runs for about a second and dies, then the carbuerator is at fault and you are not getting fuel into your motor and all you're doing is working out your arm.
