I have a Sears preasure washer with a Tecumseh engine. I would not start and I took the nut from the bottom of the bowl off and it was clogged. I got the info from a video I found on the web and the guy said to be sure and clean out a hole that was at the top of the injector but all I could find were two at the bottom and the one inside. Put it back together and it will start with the gas from the prime but will die in just a few seconds. I took it off and it was clogged again but I din't see trash in the gas. Cleaned, reinstalled and tried again but got the same results. Could thie injector be bad?
Hello.....sounds like you might have debris in your fuel as well..... need to take off the carb and gas tank....let the fuel from the gas tank (fuel line still attached) run into a jar and check for debris and/or water in the gas....is you see that, get rid of the gas in your mower and your gas can, then buy new gas and a gas can (if metal...could be rusted)....second....take the fuel bowl off the bottom of the carb, careful to save the gas to check for debris / water (this also helps indicate the quality of your gas)....clean the bowl nut with fuel ports (3) and the injector port inside the center post which the bowl nuts threads into.....use carb cleaner to make sure all is clean....use a small wire to assist cleaning if necessary....also remove the float and needle valve....careful to note the assembly to reassemble....and clean with carb cleaner the valve area as well....this will insure all debris is clear.....reassemble the carb and gas tank....this should clear up the problem....

Will try to answer your question.First your shroud cover that cover flywheel. Does it have threaded holes to bolt recoil on it. If not you will need to find a donor engine the same size. On donor engine remove shroud then remove bolt holding flywheel there will be a washer and recoil cup remove both. Remove other shroud and safety screen then flywheel nut and install donor parts the same way and should be all you need to do. One thing... Check flywheel for locking hole or slot for recoil cup so it does slip when pull recoil cord. If there is no way to do this you will need to change flywheel too.But if there is no teeth for electric starter you will lose that option altogether for electric start if you want both.

Check for condensation in the tank. Fill with FRESH gas, then if no luck, proceed ...
Main jet partially blocked. Undo bowl nut. Some models have the jet in the side of the nut - check and clean. If not, the jet is in the emusion tube of the carb - accessible throught the bowl nut orifice. Clean out & test.
On many Tecumseh engines, there is a crankcase breather located under the flywheel. It has a cork gasket to seal the top plate of the breather. Either the rubber breather housing is cracked, or the cork gasket needs replaced.
I have a Sears Craftsman Vacuum/blower with a 4.5 Tecumseh that wouldn't start. I removed the screw on the bottom of the float bowl and cleaned both the bowl and the screw. The screw has two small holes on each side which feed gas through the middle of the screw up into the carb. There was gunk which had clogged the holes and therefore no gas was getting to the carb. Once cleaned and reattached, the engine ran fine. Unfortunately, I also took the air filter housing off the carb and one of the two screws stripped while putting it back in. Be careful when threading any screws.
The carbs are plugged. Take the bowl off the carburetor by loosening the nut on the bottom. You'll want to clamp the fuel line before you do this. That nut has a small hole that goes through the nut from side to side, and one that connects them in the center. Use a wire brush to knock all the deposits loose, making sure that the holes are clean and free of obstruction. Put it all back together, and it should run fine.
Under the bottom panal (after you remove it) look to the left towards the middle and you will notice a white box looking part, this was our problem and sears ended paying 100% of parts which run about $215 before labor, this is a very easy fix and my husband replaced that and also our control buttons all werent working which sears also paid for 100% after much bickering over the phone and the service man taking care of it for me! it took him about 20 min to do both parts and our washer is working like a pro again! Our washer is the HE 4T and was flashing the F 6 AND F11! this is a lemon machine and sears should realize it and actually take care of its customers! i did notice a class action law suit on this machine and i have emailed the attorney taking care of it,
problem started when washer started itself up twice in the middle of the night....after that the washer seems to have problems figuring out what it wants to do...when running a wash it will start, run for 2 minutes then start scanning numbers...it does not land on a code...it will spin, stop, start...sears has replaced the mother board 3 times....and we will be phoning them again as it has not fixed the problem..one other time it did not spin properly and clothes were wet...we have a dedicated surge protector on it...we have had our electrical checked and no problems there...sears confirmed that as well..the techs have given up on it and don't know what to do with anymore...it is still under warranty and now costing sears more to service it then replace it....time for them to do the right thing and "take it back"...very disappointed in this washer...wish me luck when i call them again...they must be sick of hearing from me....lol
