Honda power washer won't start

I lost the manual, could not find it on line, so it may just be my ignorance. How do I get the power washer to start? The gas is full and the oil. I have attached the hoses, pulled out the choke, put it to on and pulled the cord. Nothing. HELP!

There should be an on/off switch for the ignition and a on/off valve on the carb for fuel...make sure both are on.
If you provide make and model of the unit I may be able to locate a manual.

Also, make sure you have it hooked up to water BEFORE you start it! And pull trigger on the wand to release pressure to make it easier to crank. :hope this helps, I also have Honda pressure washer, mine usually starts on the first or second pull, knock on wood!

pressure washer

I found a manual for mine on generac-portables.com. Also honda engines has a website, I did a google search on honda engine and found it. Mine has a oil level switch on the side of the block that apparently went bad. I took to bolt out and let it hang free and the motor starts and runs fine. I think the switch has faulted and grounds out when attached to the block. Dont know if you have the same washer or not mine is 2400 PSI.
