Question about Karcher 2500 PSI Pressure Washer

1 Answer

I temporarily misplaced (not lost for good) the owners manual for my honda pressure washer : engine and pump. I do not want to run my machine again until I verify the pump oil content/level. On the pump itself, at the top, there is a black, unscrewable oil cap, with blue-ish oil in it, BUT NO DIP STICK! How do I check the level? What kind of oil, specs etc? Thanks!

Husky 2600 pressure washer with honda gcv160 engine. engine won't run with choke off.


I bought mine at Home Depot, the pump failed after about 8 hours of use then Home Depot agreed to replace it now it failed again after aabout 10 hours of use. This is a piece of crap and Home Depot should be ashamed for selling this junk. I am sure they are in with Husky and making big dollars on a crappy product. My machine is like brand new just will not work. Now the carb has to be replaced only after less than 20 hours.

The pressure washer will run for a few seconds with good water pressure,then something in the pump causes the engine to shut off and all pressure is lost. Trying to restart the engine is almost...


Most likely you are haveing a problem with the water valves inside of the pump. Honda does not make pumps they make the engines and if you have a honda engine its the best engine for powerwashers . S o what you need to do is look at the pump and see who made the thing . If its a simpsion or a cat pump these bolth are vary good pumps . It could be a miti m pump there ok but tend to have problems with the valveing . The kits are cheap enough for all of them about 60 or 70 dollars . So let me know how many horse power the engine is and what kind of pump you have and the gal pr munite aswell as the max pressure out put of the mechine how old is it and ware did you buy it Most of this information will be on a metal tag on the water pump or the frame of the mechine. A nd i'll tell you if its worth saveing Pier_j

Pressure stops and starts intermittently


<span class="Apple-style-span" style="font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 14px; line-height: 18px; ">With the engine turned off, pour liquid TSP into the fresh water inlet until it comes out the other end at first just water that is already within the pump will come out but make sure you put enough TSP that it starts to come out the wand outlet. Then, let it sit for 48 hours and don't run it at all. This is how I fixed my no pressure problem tomsimmonds@yahoo.ca owner of Honda 5.5 with Comet pressure washer pump</span>

Pressure Washer Pump and Engine Stops Suddenly


The pump might be binding against the motor, causing the pump to overheat and temporarilly "seize up" and shut the engine off.
After cooling down for a brief period (5~10 mins) the engine can usually be re-started, but the overheating problem will keep coming back.

This happens when the pump either wasn't seated against the engine properly during it's initial instalation, or the pump housing wasn't machined properly and the PTO shaft is trying to drive the pump at a slight angle = excessive friction = overheating.

Try this:
1) Loosen the bolts that mount the pump to the engine just enough so that the pump can be wiggled slightly.
2) With the engine power switch in the "OFF" position, slowly pull the recoil starter rope so that the engine / pump completes about two revolutions. This helps to align the pump surface with the engine.
3) Lightly snug the pump mounting bolts in a criss-cross pattern, then slowly pull the recoil starter rope again to ensure that the pump isn't binding.
4) Finish tightening the pump mounting bolts in the criss-cross pattern (approx. 21 foot pounds torque).

The entire process should take you roughly about 10 mins from start to finish.

If this doesn't remedy your problem, then try running the engine for 20 mins with the pump COMPLETELY removed so as to isolate the components.
