There are a couple of things that can cause this problem. The first thing to check is if you are loosing spark. Dying after it gets hot sounds like to stater is failing in the engine. If you loose spark this is more than likely the issue. If you are not loosing spark you need to check the fuel system. Dying after 20 seconds it could also be a plugged main jet in the carb. Another common issue on Honda engines is a faulty vent on the gas caps for engines sold from around 2008 - late 2010. If your gas cap is only about 3/8" thick this is very likely to be your issue. Try running the engine without the gas cap on to see if it still dies. If not that is your problem.

Engine will not run but a few minutes at a time


Check your spark plugs, see if they are failing, if they are then your motor is getting to hot. meaning that you either have the fuel mixture set to high or the setting on the spark plugs are not correct causing you to burn hot.

New Troy-Bilt 3000 psi - Very Hard to Hot Start


When you run the unit and shut if off, release the pressure from the spray wand before trying to restart the engine. This built up pressure will cause it to be very hard to start as you have found out. If it does not start on the second pull release the pressure again. Another option is do do what I did on mine. I simply put a pull tie on the handle so I can pull the trigger back and use the pull tie to hold the trigger open. Make sure if you do this, that you remove the high pressure orifice from the end of the wand before attempting to start the engine. Otherwise the pressure will come on abruptly and could injure you or do property damage.

Northstar PW shuts off hot if washer is moved. Honda engine


Being petrol driven, it may have a mercury kill switch which puts a ground on the ignition circuit stopping the engine if you move it. Perhaps for safety in case you overturn the unit somehow.

Honda GX340 11 Hp ..Runs fine until it gets hot , Cuts off and


FIRST...check the engine oil level. Some Honda engines have an oil sensor that shuts off the spark if the oil is low. This would also explain it shutting down when it get hot. Check the manual to see how to tell if the oil level is correct. Also, the oil should be brown and transparent, not black. It may need changing. Post again if this doesn't help :-)

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

% 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.
