Excell 2500 psi Pressure washer, need advice

Spent about $400 on this pressure washer at Home Depot about 3-4 years ago...used about 1-2 a year then didn't use at all last year...

It won't run, it's got spark and gas is getting where it needs to go but won't turn over. Also, it won't build up pressure.

Took it to one place and said it was most likely the pump and that you can't get parts for it. ??? And if it's the motor it would cost as much as a new one and wasn't worth fixing.

Has a Honda Motor and it's by Excell-DeVibliss Power Company.

Any suggestions...

Pumps on many of the entry level washers are not repairable, parts plus labor is more than a replacement. The no start is likely the result of stale gas. The fuel system probably needs a thorough cleaning. Disconnect the fuel hose and drain the tank then remove the drain screw from the carb bowl (the one at the side). You should be using a fuel stabilizer if you are storing it for long periods of time.If you need a pump and a tuneup, go for a new unit.
