I just bought a used Karcher 60 gas power washer. Worked

Customer Question

I just bought a used Karcher 60 gas power washer. Worked well when I bought it. Brought it home yesterday and gave it a brief trial run and fine. Today I took on my deck and after about 15 minutes it sputtered out. Restarted right up. Happened a couple of times and then seemed to die. Doesn't sound like it will kick over.
The only thing I did to it was add gas - fresh gas I had just bought.
What do you suggest?

Hi I'm Wayne

No. It had been running fine so had no reason to look for that. How best to do that?

Remove the spark Plug, lay across the engine

wire on, and crank it over

you should have a deep dark blue spark

Never mind. Got tired of waiting. The engine was running so obviously I had spark. Never mind. Sign me off and keep the $5.
