Question about Briggs Pressure Washers

1 Answer

Replaced stop switch and still won't shut off.

Briggs engine numbers 10H902, 0113, E1, 05091255

New stop switch won't move when lever is turned to stop position. Old stop switch tried to fall out when lever is turned to stop position. Engine will not shut off without pulling plug wire.

This engine is on an older Craftsman power washer.

Hi

When lever is turned to stop position look under the levers" support and see if there is established a conection with the wire from the coil wich kills the running engine.Also check the conductivity of that wire.

Will not shut off have to run it out of gas


It won't shut down because the gizmo that shorts the spark plug is not working. If possible take an insulated screw driver and either pull the spark plug wire off the plug or try to touch the end of the plug and the engine at the same time. If the switch is in the gas lever there may be an adjustment on or in it that shorts the plug out.

Northstar PW shuts off hot if washer is moved. Honda engine


Being petrol driven, it may have a mercury kill switch which puts a ground on the ignition circuit stopping the engine if you move it. Perhaps for safety in case you overturn the unit somehow.

Craftsman pressure washer constantly fluctuates and then stops


sounds like fuel problem. Either water\trash at bottom of tank, or most likely, carb needs to be disassembled and bowl and jets sprayed out w\carb cleaner.my money is on the latter.

Throttle switch moving


Trace the throttle cable, it probably has a loose mount/clamp somewhere along its length.

Replaced stop switch and it still won't shut off!


While attending college, I worked at a tool rental center and learned many tips and tricks from the mechanics. The problem that we heard the most from customers was that the machine would not start. Your your machine at least starts and runs fine, however will not shut down with the factory kill switch. Many times when replacing the mag. (spark coil) the kill wire would rub against the flywheel and break or over time the conductor wire will break inside the insulation. If you kill switch only has one wire, then all the kill switch does is short the mag to ground. Simple test is to remove spark plug, re-connect wire to plug, touch plug to engine and pull rope to observe spark, then short the tab on the magnito to ground, should be no spark. If you still have spark, coil is defective however good enough to run engine. Kill with choke or pull wire. If no spark with test, make new wire from tab of coil to kill switch or any switch that will short tab to ground. Good Luck
