SOURCE: Need to know where oil

I have the same model...... it should be just underneath the unit.... it will look like a square head recessed. I used the ratchet set extension and it fit just right. I literally had to tilt the darn thing upside down to find it. Then once it was loosen a bit, I put the machine upright on the wheels again, and slip a plastic pan underneath as I finished unscrewing the oil plug, Out came the black goo.

SOURCE: I do like to know if this washer is good enough

We power washed houses for years with a 2400psi machine. The machine weighed about 90 pounds. 1 strong man could pick up the weight, but usually it took 2 men to unload it from the trailer.

A small machine can advertise 2400 psi ... but that is for 3 square inches at a time. The heavier machine shoots a 10" or wider swath of 2400psi.

We ran our machine twice a week for years. We had a honda engine. I'm sure the briggs engine is good. I wouldn't buy a used machine... unless the price was low and it started on first pull. Electric starter on your power washer might be a repair-waiting-to-happen because it is constantly exposed to water and dirt.

SOURCE: I have a Craftsman (B & S) pressure washer 7

I worked at a tool rental store while attending college and discovered how to extend the life of tools. Really a simple trick that you practice every day. Although your car can travel at a very high rate of speed, you only use about 30 to 40 percent of its power, if however you traveled at 100 mph everywhere that you needed to go, you would greatly shorten its life. Althouth I do believe that you have received good service from your unit, you may have increased the life by using only 60 to 80 percent of its pressure potential for most general work and increase only for stubborn debris.

The first thing I would check would be the oil level, to make sure you didn't put in too much oil. If the oil level is correct, it could be a stuck piston ring, letting oil blow by the piston, and out the exhaust. If this is the case, you are going to have to tear down the engine.

Hope this helps!

The firwt time this year I tried to start my Briggs Troybilt Pressure Washer, it will not pump gas. I spray gasoline in to the carb and it starts for a moment. I spray gas in the cylinder, and it fires for...


If you left gas in it over the winter, particularly with the ethanol blends, the carb's probably all gunked up. You'll likely have to pull the carb, clean it and rebuild it.

I have a Briggs & Stratton Pressure Washer it was just working Fine THEN the water stopped coming out of the wand? Any Suggestion


Remove the tip and pull the wand trigger without the tip in. If water comes out then your tip is clogged. Clean the tip and reinstall. Or try a different tip.

Its also possible that there is a kink in the supply hose to the unit.

Try these first, it should solve the problem about 90% of the time

Briggs and Stratton pressure washer will not spray water. The engine is fine but water does not flow.


The nozzle on the end of the spray wand has a very small hole in it that can be easily clogged by any sort of debris that comes through the water supply.If the nozzle can be removed, just take a pin & clear the hole from the outside & rinse it off. If the nozzle can't be removed, then take the wand apart at the connector in the middle and do the same thing.

I have a briggs & stratton pressure washer that every time I engage the spray hose my pressure washer stops. Why???? I have left it running for a couple mins. before engaging, doesn't seem to help


PROBABLY the valve that admits the water to the pump is sticking. USUALLY bad O-Rings. If the valve sticks closed, the pressure won't build up. If it sticks open, the washer will stall. Most other problems are engine problems due to bad gas, carbureator, etc.

Briggs & Stratton engine loses power


Hello herb1007
If it is running it would burn any oil off the top of the piston. (that got there when you tipped it). It sounds like you carburetor needs cleaning. There are sprays on the market that sometime help with this.

could be a low oil safety switch on the briggs & stratton gone bad. Try disconnecting it and fire it up.
