Troy Bult 01902 Leaking gas from air filter area

I have a Troy Built 01902 2350psi 2.0gpm pressure washer. I have never used it but did let someone borrow it a couple of years back. It was brand new and since being returned has not been used and has been sitting in the garage. I decided to fire it up and actually use it and take advantage of it. Well when I tried to fill the gas tank I noticed that the gas just spills right out of where the air filter goes. No matter what position the choke is in it just leaks out until empty. I read somewhere it could be the float but I would like an expert opinion. If so I have not seen that part for purchase unless one has to disassemble the whole thing to get to it. If that is the case then I will drop it off for service but if this is something that I could fix it would be greatly appreciated. I know this is a consumer model but It should be fine for my needs and I do not want nor need a new unit if this can be restored to functional status.

    Thanks for you help. I have not tried messing with it since this post. However I am aware about cleaning the carb and such. I really wanted specific help on the gas leakage and the float and why it could be leaking. I do not care about spark or ignition as I am not going to start it if it is leaking gas. Starting was not the problem I listed anyway therefore the solution does not fit. I appreciate your help and will do what you have stated as it could use some preventative maintenance. Thank you and God Bless!

How do i prime the pump on the soaper or chemical dispenser on my troy built 2550 psi pressure washer?


There is no need to prime. But you do need to use the black spray nozzle to get soap to siphon out.
if that doesn't solve the problem let me know

Gas leaks out side of pressure washer


Your washer was sitting for a while I suspect. Check the carb and make sure it is tight to the engine. If it is then you will need to take the carb off, careful not to tear any gaskets. Then remove the fuel bowl and clean out all ports. Make sure to clean out the jet as well as I suspect the fuel is clogged in the carb and overfilling. Your needle valve is stuck open and then flooding your carb and spilling out the side of your engine. Make sure your needle valve and float can move freely before reassembling. Good luck
