A clogged air filter can also keep your pressure washer from starting. Learn how to find, clean or replace pressure washer filters. Remove the air filter and flush the carburetor with carburetor cleaner to remove any built-up dirt or carbon residue. Use a toothbrush to get into tight corners.
One of the most obvious signs that your carburetor needs cleaning is the development of popping and “sneezing” sounds when the pressure washer is running. These sounds are often an indication that there is some sort of imbalance occurring in the air and fuel mixture.
Begin isolating the problem by hooking a water hose to the washer`s inlet and turning it on. If water flows out the outlet, you know water is cycling through. If not, chances are your inlet filter is clogged. Remove and clean it, and you should be good to go.
To check fuel delivery, remove the fuel line where it enters the carburetor and use a length of rubber hose to direct the flow into bottle or similar container. Fuel should pulse out in strong spurts if your engine is equipped with a mechanical fuel pump (electric fuel pumps are more of a steady stream).
Open the throttle quickly. You should see the accelerator pump system discharge a squirt of fuel into each primary barrel. The flow should continue for a few seconds after the throttle valve reaches the wide-open throttle position. If not, the accelerator pump system is defective.
Will an airlock clear itself. Even if you run out of water, air should automatically clear in a well-constructed low-pressure water pipe system. The air should naturally climb to the top and discharge as the pipe system fills up.
If your pressure washer is not starting, one issue could be a clogged carburetor. Old fuel, dirt, or debris can clog a carburetor, and simply leaving fuel in the pressure washer for too long can lead to a clogged carburetor too.
Fuel that has been stored for over thirty days can go bad and damage key components on your pressure washer. If possible, drain the remaining fuel into an approved container, like a gas can.. If that`s not possible, add fuel stabilizer to prevent the gas from breaking down and gumming up engine components.

My dewalt dpd3300 ,why is it getting gas in the oil
ANSWER : This happens when the gas needle valve in the carburator sticks open. With it open, gas continues to flow into the carburator then into the cylinder and finally down into the crankcase. It can be caused by dirt in the needle valve’s seat, a stuck needle or float. Most of the time you can remove the float bowl and flush out any dirt. If there’s a lot you should consider flushing the gas tank and check your gas can for dirt. If the washer has been sitting for a long time the problem could be varnish is gumming up the carb works. Carb cleaner works well to flush that out. If the float, needle or seat is damaged you’ll have to rebuild or replace the carb.

Soap feed The soap feed hose on my Karcher 2650 does not suck up the soap into the washer. I pulled off the connector piece that the hose is connected to. I can blow through the hose. There is a little metal finger thing that you can tell pushes up into place when the water pressure is high. It seems like it is supposed to drop down and allow some soap through when the water is running. I found a loose(attached to nothing) gasket, looks like a little donut. It was just free floating in there. I’m thinking it may go over the finger mechanism. I just put it back on top of the finger, like a halo and put the screw in piece back in. Anyway, if you know, let me know how all that goes together.
ANSWER : I fixed mine works good too, watch my video step by step i put it on youtubehttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UFXSLOBL0Mg

Will not siphon
ANSWER : This model pressure washer will only siphon from the soap dispenser when you have the low-pressure nozzle attached and then will only sort of dribble out the suds. Good for sudsing, but no good for cleaning. You’ll have to suds 1st then change to a highwe pressure spray nozzle to perform the actual cleaning. If it won’t siphon with the low pressure nozzle either, then check for a blockage (old, dried soap) in the suction line tubing. Hope this helps!!
