Excell Power Washer Stalls

Folks, My Excell WGC3030 Power Washer stalls when I pull the trigger. The Honda engine seems fine (I checked all the basics). I was told that this could have something to do with the unloader. Before I start ripping this apart I was hoping to get some additional input as to any other things that could be causing this. I'm grateful for any suggestions. John

Probably the carburetor. When you pull the trigger, the unloader does move, but it sounds like it's working. When the unloader moves back (when you pull the trigger) it loads the engine down with the pressure from the pump. If there is water in the carb, or it doesn't have good throttle response, the engine will die instead of taking the load.

Thank You Cheese

Cheese, this is what I'm looking for and you may have saved me huge bucks and wasted time. I'll take the carb off and make sure it is complete free of any fuel or moisture. While I'm at it I'll redrain the gas tank and the lines to the carb. Thanks so much for the help and God bless you too!!!

Compressed air, if you have access to such, and/or spray carburetor/choke cleaner will help greatly in cleaning out the carb. If, once you have the carburetor disassembled, you notice heavy varnish buildup, you better soak the carb in a bath type cleaner and then spray it down and then blow it out with compressed air and then install a rebuild kit and be sure to also replace any intake mounting gaskets.
