Question about Briggs & Stratton Pressure Washer Projectpro Spray Nozzle

Open Question

Can'r pull the cord on my pressure washer. it seems to be ceased.

I pull on the cord to try and start my pressure washer. It start to pull it and then stops like it is ceased. How can I fix this. Have not used it in a year, I checked the fuel, the spark plub and the oil. All of those are good. We had the same problem and followed Mr. FixIt's solution. It helped, but now we can't get the washer to stay running. The flywheel turns and the engine starts up but won't stay running long enough to get warm. Mr. FixIt, can you help us some more? Any suggestions?

SOURCE: Reconditioned B&S pressure washer will not restart

Some suggestions:
Is the gas old? If in doubt replace it.
Try removing the air filter and spraying carburetor cleaner into the carb Then try starting it. If it runs for just a minute, then stops, the carburetor needs cleaning.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: Engine wont stay running

It is a diaphram carb. Doe's the primer **** straight gas or does it have air bubbles in it? If it has bubbles in it then it is a leak in the fuel line.
If not then Unhook the intake fuel line and pump the bulb until all of the gas is out of it. Then pour the gas out of the tank and rinse it out with new gas. Pour in new gas and it should be ok.

Crank pull cord doesn't pull out on honda pressure washer.. The machine is only 3 months old


if the fuel tap has been left on it may have fuel on top of the cylinder and would not able to pull cord.
if so take the spark plug out and turn over,fuel may come out of hole.replace spark plug and try to start. if it still won't turn over,you will need to take the face plate off the motor. remove and inspect if there is any foreign objects. try to turn motor over by hand., grab on to fly wheel & turn. if it moves freely it may be the pull start it-self. try pulling the cord out. if no problem assemble and try to start.

Won't start. Pull chord will only come out quarter of the way.


There could be two possible problems here.

1) Usually you want to squeeze the gun trigger to release backpressure on the pump so the engine will turn over easily. So hold the gun in one hand with water coming out of the gun while pulling cord.

2) The pull cord mechanism is connected to top of power washer with 3-4 bolts.
Take off those bolts and see if you can unravel the problem. The mechanism is connected to a spring and the spring pulls the cord back in ... so it seems like the rope is in a bind or the pull mechanism is bad.
We had to buy a replacement pull cord mechanism at one time for our power washer, but I forget exactly why it stopped working. We used the power washer two days a week for years. It's aggravating when it doesn't work.

I can not pull the string to start the engine of power washer


Try removing the spark plug then pulling the cord! If the cord pulls then you cycle the engine a couple of time to see if fuel is coming out of the spark plug hole! If no fuel present replace spark plug and try starting the engine. always have water running through your washer before you attemp to start!

The motor's pull start seems locked. How do I


Usually what I do first is pull the pump off the engine. After doing that use your hand to back the motor's shaft up about a quarter turn. Then without the pump on try to start the motor. If it starts put the pump back on and try to run it. Sometimes the crank and piston get set just perfectly so you cant pull it over. If that doesn't work post here again and I will help you further.
