Hello:
Best to use NON DETERGENT 10W30. Be sure you fill the reservoir only 1/3 to less than 1/2 full.

SOURCE: Craftsman Pressure washer will not spray

your not missing anything, check the pump, they tend to go bad over time and may need replacing. The pump provides the pressure as well as the suction for the whole process, pulling water from the hose or tank and pushing it forcefully through the pressure washer line. If the motor is running and you have the water going through the line and to the pump, and no water is coming out, my guess would be the pump.

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.

My prime bulb looses pressure and first start is hard. I have to remove fuel line from filter and cover with thumb prime re install then first start takes time.


Does the engine run fine after it starts? Most common problem with primer bulb losing prime is an air leak in the fuel line or primer bulb. Air leaks don't always leak fuel. If there is an air leak between the primer bulb and gas tank there is no pressure, only vacuum. If it is not a major leak it might not leak without pressure but it will allow air to enter the fuel line. If it is a very minor air leak it could allow air to replace the liquid in the fuel line over time, but so little air once it is primer again that the fuel pump can over come it with volume of fuel.

Primer bulbs do not stay firm, as they are when initially pumped up, after the engine is running. There are check valves in the primer bulb that hold pressure in the primer bulb and throughout the fuel line to the engine. Once the engine starts the fuel pump creates vacuum drawing fuel into the engine diminishing this pressure and releasing the check valves. At this point the primer bulb is just another segment of fuel hose allowing fuel to pass through it as the fuel pump demands. The primer bulb functions much better when the outlet side is higher than the inlet side. This position makes it easier for the check valves in the primer bulb to seat and release as needed. If the primer bulb is functioning properly and is positioned with the outlet side higher than the inlet it should not be necessary to cover the end of the fuel hose with your thumb to get it to prime.

If the engine is hard to start after being fully primed there could be a problem with the fuel system on the engine. Some engines are hard to prime once air has entered the system, especially fuel injected models.

Where do i get a 2200 psi pump?


It depends on what you want the pump for, but at 2200 psi, I presume you are looking for something like a pressure washer pump.
Harbor Freight sells a 1600 or 2500 psi pressure washer

http://www.harborfreight.com/2500-psi-3-gpm-65-hp-212cc-pressure-washer-69734.html

If you need just the pump, here are a couple of websites to check out:

Pressure Washer Direct
http://www.pressurewashersdirect.com/power/pressure-washer-pumps.html

Northern Tool
http://www.northerntool.com/shop/tools/category_pressure-washer-accessories+pressure-washer-pumps?utm_source=Natural&utm_medium=Covario&utm_campaign=Pressure

And you can check on Amazon or eBay and see if someone is selling one there.


Good luck!

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.

I have a Blue Max high presure washer, 2200 psi.


Hi Greg. Walk into your nearest Lawn Mower parts supply with your engine model number (usually on the recoil) and they will have the replacement part or repair your old one. It is less expesive to have the old one repaired unless the support struts have broken. 2200 PSI should have a Honda GX160.
engine:

Here is another source....
http://www.northerntool.com/shop/tools/product_200327175_200327175

They can range from $32.00 to $68.00 depending on source.

Honda PN is: 28400-ZH8-013ZA (do net search this number) Or call your local Lawn Mower repair Supply with the number.

If you have a Briggs & Stratton engine I will need the ENGINE model number off of the air shroud just above the spark plug.

Thanks for using FixYa.
