    my new (second hand) pressure washer turned up today. I'm a complete novice with all this so you'll have to excuse the stupid questions!

    I've unpacked it, checked the oil, put fuel in, gone to start it and the pull cord won't pull out more than 3-4 inches? It just sort of jams, and will retract fine. There is no attempt to turn over or anything ( I don't think it comes out far enough for that)

    Is there something I should be doing to release it? Or is there a bigger problem here?

    It's a Honda gp200 if that helps.

    Thanks all, I'm pulling my hair out here!

    Agree with williams. It sort of 'decompresses' the system.
