Check the linkage on the carburator. Also loose mounting screws on the carb can cause a problem.

Check that the fuel tank is not creating a vacuum. this will starve the engine. After it shuts down the vacuum dissipates and lets the fuel run into the carb again.

Gas in crankcase and oil


The best solution I have found for this is to turn the gas shut off valve off when not in use. I have many of these Honda motors and on all of them if you don't close that valve after use, the crank case will fill with gas.

Karcher G 3000 BH Engine Pumping Problem


This may not be a motor problem. It sounds like your pump is not working properly and the motor is just following the pump. First thing to do is check for leaks in the pump, wand hose, gun etc. It may also be a blown water seal inside the pump.

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?

It is possible that the oil pressure switch is not functioning properly or you have a lighter oil in the machine than is recommended.
