Sounds like moisture sitting in your carburetor bowl, while in storage, has caused some corrosion which is preventing the needle valve from closing. Drain your fuel tank and remove the small bowl at the bottom of your carb. Carefully clean the needle valve and seat with a soft cloth. Test the float to make sure there is no liquid inside of it and that it actually does float when suspended. Take care to reassemble the needle valve and float and bowl the way you removed them.

    Well I'm glad it worked. I do appreciate the rating, however, should the rating have been a "FixYa" rather than "Helpful"? Thanks.

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

All outflow stops when I start the motor on my Troy-bilt 2600 pressure washer. What's up?


Could also be crack/leak in HP pump. If it were left in cold weather without antifreeze, I'd check there first. Part + labor might warrant new washer if more than a couple years old.
Sorry.

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

Troy Built 2500 pressure washer, gass filled cylinder, oil is comtaminated, can it be fixed


Anything can be fixed but you may need more specific help.Gas filled cylinder and contaminated oil may be linked to the carb flooding the bore and gradually getting into the oil. Fixing one fault may fix all. See why the gas fills the cylinder, then fix that. Change the oil and go from there, don't change anything unless you are sure. Keep in mind the economics of the repair costs. Checking everything is functioning as it should usually reveals the problem.
