Generac g24 pressure washer. Cuts off if I release trigger

Customer Question

Generac g24 pressure washer. Cuts off if I release trigger and it has been sitting for 2 years in storage

I would try to clean the carb as it sounds like the low side jet is clogged. What engine is on the machine?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Honda 5OHV

I just changed oil and spark plug

Will try running it again in morning
Expert:  JON replied 1 year ago.

Honda carbs are sometimes hard to clean out, but they are cheaply replaced. I would try to clean out first either way. Once you pull carb and remove bowl, you will need a flat head screw driver to remove the jet from the center tube. If it has been in storage for 2 years, carb could use the cleaning. Let me know please, and I will be here to help off and on tomorrow if you need me
