Power washer won't stay in high gear
My kärcher power washer is powered by a Honda GC160 5hp engine. The throttle control has always been automatic, you pull the trigger and the engine kicks into high gear. Lately I pull the trigger and the engine stays in idle mode. If I pull repeatedly it will kick into high gear and I can wash, but what is the root cause? Throttle control? Carb problem? Any ideas?
Re: Power washer won't stay in high gear
When I run my Karcher I always turn the water on before the engine. If my wand is locked in shut off position the engine stays in idle mode and will only go into high mode when I turn the wand open. Could you possibly need a new wand?
