I have this same Excell 2600 pressure washer and I had the same problem after using old gas and leaving it sit idle for 4 months after using it only once. When you pull out the choke you are dumping raw gas in the engine and bypassing the carburetor. Even though you drain the gas tank there is still gas in the carburetor and float assembly. I took it to an Authorized repair shop and they tried cleaning the carburetor and finally ended up replacing it. Cost me some bucks. Good Luck

A couple of things....

Clean the air filter and make sure it is dry.

Check for any springs that have come off of the linkage.

With compressed air, blow out the carburetor.

Clean and clear out the fuel tube from the tank to the carb housing.

Be sure you have proper oil level.

Out of what you have said...it is something in the carburetor....probably needs a flushing with air.

Give it a try and post back!

All outflow stops when I start the motor on my Troy-bilt 2600 pressure washer. What's up?


Could also be crack/leak in HP pump. If it were left in cold weather without antifreeze, I'd check there first. Part + labor might warrant new washer if more than a couple years old.
Sorry.

Honda pressure washer 5hp will only run with the choke on. Was running fine for about 1 hour


The problems you describe are usually indicative of a blockage in the fuel system somewhere in the carburator or a damaged gasket that's letting in too much air. With the choke on, the vacuum in the carb goes way up and forces more gas through. Remove the carb and check the gaskets and insulator if it has one. Then check the float bowl for debris and blow out all the passages in the carb.

If it's been sitting for 3 years most likely the carb is gummed up. If it's getting spark, you could try a small shot of starting fluid into the carb. If it runs on this you know it's a fuel problem. Best bet would get all the MOTOR data, and buy a carb kit from you local lawn and garden equipment parts supplier. . Remove carburator and clean and install kit. Use sta-bil when you put it away next time, but even that only works about a year or so.

Honda gas power pressure washer runs for awhile then cuts off.


did you pour all of the old gas out before you started to use it. Sometimes condensation builds up in gas tank when stored. You need to dump old gas an put in new gas.

How do I clean the fuel line on troy bilt 5hp chipper vac?


unscrew the nut on the bottom of the carburetor and remove the float bowl it must be emptied and cleaned , debree and water gets into the bowl and blocks of fuel flow reinstall the bowl and start, some carbs don't have a float bowl requiring you to remove the gas tank and carb which is a more involved cleaning.
