Question about Briggs Garden

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

Engine numbers: 10H902, 0113, E1, 05091255.

This engine is on an older Craftsman powerwasher.

Replaced the magneto and everything was fine. Then after about a week it wouldn't shut off. The stop switch that was in it wouldn't shut it off and the new stop switch won't shut it off either. What am I missing?

HELP!!!!

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

How do i fix my powerwasher


If it is electric it will stop every time you release the hand piece. If it is engine driven then check the throttle setting as it should unload the pump and go to idle.

Why does my karcher powerwasher starts and dies after 2 minutes


dirty carb , clean carb, install a fuel cut off valve ( or start using it if you already have one) when you are done washing, turn off the fuel valve and continue spraying water until the engine stops. That will empty the carburetor bowl and the carb will stay clean until you want to use it again.

I have a Briggs and Stratton 6.5 Quantum Powerwasher. I cannot get it started. I think I am missing a step. Could anyone help me?


This is a 6.5 hp Quantum engine operators manual for this engine number 126T02-0209-B1 :
http://www.briggsandstratton.com/document/index.aspx?doc=277039EST_F_LO.pdf (5.68 mb)
Parts list:
http://www.briggsandstratton.com/document/index.aspx?doc=MS3728_G_LO.pdf (3.01 mb)

Engine start procedures begin on page 7 of the operator's manual. There is one very important step and that is to turn ON the fuel selector (if equipped).

This engine came in 3 different types.
Primber bulb
Manual choke
and Ready Start (auto choke)

If your still haing problems you can contact Briggs and Stratton at 1-800-233-3723. The will walk you through the start process. The will ask you for your engine number. An example of an engine number is: 126T02-0209-B1 They will need the complete number that is usually stamped on the air shroud just above the spark plug wire.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,

Engine on powerwasher starts but quits running after approx 10 seconds. Engine oil changed, oil is full & tried choke in various positions. Also has fresh fuel in tank. What else can I do


try cleaning the carb that ethanol plays havoc on these small engines if it is not a premix oil and gas unit add a little 2 cycle engine oil to the gas will keep the carbon builup to a minimum not to much it will gunk up your spark plug take the carb apart and clean it with carb cleaner or deisellet dry check your spark plug make sure it is clean and ok that is where I would start

Powerwasher honda 13.0 running fine until gets hot after 30 min. cuts out every 5 mins after that.


If this has the thick silver gas cap, I have had similar problems on a number of these engines because it is a vented fuel cap and it will slow or even stop the fuel flow if they stop venting Try loosening or better yet replacing it. If that doesnt solve it then you may want to drain the fuel and put in fresh fuel Pressure washers will get water in the tank. Also make sure you drain the carb bowl. There is a bolt on the side of the carb bowl for that purpose.

I can't start my powerwasher. Where is the choke?


This Power washer has a 3.75 hp Briggs and Stratton Engine. It does not have a choke but does have a primer bulb. You must depress the primer bulb at least 3 times to start the engine. The primer bulb is on the side of the carb. It can be black or red. If your still unable to locate the primer bulb please provide your ENGINE model number and I will provide you a link to a diagram for the location of the primer bulb.

Thanks for using FixYa.

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.

Replaced stop switch and still won't shut off.


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.
