You can try and remove the old gas the carburetor and perhaps the fuel filter are most likly fouled with gunk from the old gas. When gas sits, over time it forms a thick gummy deposit that can clog carburetors, and anything else. try fresh gas with some carburetor cleaner (NOT the kind in the spray can) mixed in. It may need to have the carburetor rebuilt or replaced.

How do i fix a honda landa 3500 pressure washer, when the water doesn't come out when started?


Check out the trigger mechanism. Water should come out at any time, even when you do not have the unit started.

Check for spark of smell of gas on the plug when you try to start it. That will tell you if it is fuel or ignition

Honda 13 hp won't start...back fire's


Assuming that the engine has not been taken apart and timing is set correctly. Have seen this often. Usually valve adjustment. Adjust valves as per manual so that compression release is working. If compression release is not working after adjustment check for faulty cam.

I am looking at buying the following 2006 Landa PG4-3500 PSI washer Used 283 hours, 13 HP Honda GX-390 3.8GPM, pump 1300RPM Comes w/ wand, hose,& 4 tips What would this washer be worth?


It has quite allot of hours on it so it has been used extensively. 283 hours on a pressure washer pump is about 27% of it's life expectancy. The good news is that it has a Honda engine. If it runs perfectly, looks like it has been taken care of, and has plenty of pressure, I would pay no more than around $400 for it tops. You are the buyer and the seller is wanting to sell. You have the upper hand in this deal. Offer $300 and then bargain.

Honda 13 hp will not start, will run on starting spary, new spark plug, has knocing noise before stopping


Hello,

If this machine has been sitting for an extended period of time it is likely that you have a couple of things going on. First you should drain the fuel from the gas tank. Next remove the bowl from the carb and using a flat head screwdriver remove the mainjet from the carb. Check that it is clear then re-assemble. Next pull your spark plug. Put a rag over the hole in the head where the plug was and pull the engine over a few times. Re-install the plug. Now remove the grey oil dipstick from the engine and check for the oil level being over full. If it is drain the excess.

Doing all of this should solve your issue. In most cases the problem you describe is caused by varnished / rotten fuel, a faulty carb float allowing fuel to drain into the crankcase creating excess pressure or water buildup in the cylinder creating excess pressure.

13 hp honda pressure washer 3000 psi 4gal/min Hard to start and dies out after 20 seconds after the engine gets hot and running after multiple starts the engine will stay running but then dies every 30...


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.

I have a Generac power washer with briggs and stratten 4.5 Horse. I bought it 7 years ago and stored it. I started for the first time today, it started on the first pull and runs great, but doesn't pump...


I hope you did have it connected to a water line. I'm also assuming the pressure washer function is working ok. Some times the sypon tubing gets clogged from cleaners drying up and building up in tubing and passageway. Does your gun have a cleaning on/off function sometimes by twisting handle? If you have an extra hose, try forcing some water in the tubing while trying to apply solution. If all else fails, clean all solution passageways.

I have a landa hmp-4-3500 heated pressure washer and i am problems with the water heater. where can i find a trouble shooting guide for this machine


Landa does not have a model HMP so I am not sure which machine you have. If you can provide a full model and serial off of the model tag on the machine I can provide you with a digital copy of the manual you are looking for.

I need to buy a pressure washer for residential/commercial work


Were I to pick from one of those three, I would pick the Landa. The most reliable pumps are Hotsy and since Karcher bought Landa and Hotsy, those three brands now have Hotsy pumps, though it doesn't say it on the machines.

Honda GCV160 5.5 on a pressure washer runs only intermittently


The problem is the plastic float in the carburetor, it's not adjustable and after sitting up with gas in it it distorts. Save yourself the trouble and buy a new one, you can get them online for $15-$20.
