Question about Briggs & Stratton Pressure Washer Projectpro Spray Nozzle

2 Answers

The engine starts just fine. Everything goes okay until I pull the trigger on the spray gun and then the engine stalls out within 2-3 seconds after the water starts coming out. It is a 2700 Briggs and Stratton engine.

One thing I have found about pressure washers...you need to run water through the hose and everything until you get all the air out...or they will bog down and such until the air is out.

Hi:
The first thing I would do is be certain the nozzle is not partially plugged. If you attempt to clean it be careful not to damage it in any way

I have a 2005 s type r ...in cold weather when I start it in the morning it shakes the car for a few seconds after that everything goes in normal I have chenged the fuel filter,air filer the car has only...


There are several things which can be wrong. Your car has a "cold start routine" which is similar to the old style choke. It uses a temperature sensor to trigger the effect. Most likely the sensor is failing to cue the routine.

On some cars there are 2 sensors with 1 operating the temperature gauge and the second operating the engine controls. You want to change the sensor for the engine control.

Another few possibilities are the ISC (idle speed control) which is a solenoid resting horizontally in the intake manifold. They can soot up and cause idle problems until they free up. And the EGR could be dirty and need flowing exhaust to free itself.

Last, but not least are your O2 sensors. They have heaters built in them to rapidly restore your idle to a lean condition. They should set a problem Code but a lot depends on the total of other factors that determine driveability. Their performance could be off but still within working range.

Finally, some engines have a part called a manifold runner. They can stick. IF your engine has this part this is another possibility.

Last, a small Vacuum leak. When cold metal heats up small Intake gasket leaks can reseal. Spraying a water mist from a spray bottle will make an engines' RPM change or stall. Just wet the seams of the intake manifold while it runs.

Please rate my info.

I bought a honda pressure washer power boss 3000. I load the gasoline, start the machine, but pressure water is not coming out from the trigger. i tried so many things , but can t get started.


If you are using a water tank for water supply, remove the water supply line from the pressure washer and connect a water hose from a faucet. Turn the water on, then crank the engine. Pull the trigger of the spray gun until water comes out. When then water starts to spray properly the release the trigger, shut engine down with pressure on the line then reconnect the water supply from the tank to the pressure washer. If this fixes the problem then the problem was "air-locked"! Happens alot with new pressure washers that have never been run. If you need any other help, please email me @ davidandlisacampbell@yahoo.com

I installed a new grease cartridge in my grease gun and grease does not come out when triggered.


If the gun was working properly before you changed the cartridge, The gun is air-locked
Two things: 1. Make sure the bottom rod is pushed in. 2. Holding the gun by the handle on the top left of the gun, below the hose there is a little metal valve. Push that vent valve down and pull the trigger repeatedly until grease starts to come out.
If that doesn't work. Remove the grease hose, hold the vent valve down, pull the trigger a few times. Then release the valve and pull the trigger until grease comes out. Replace the hose.
And if that doesn't work. Sometimes when you put in a new cartridge the metal "washer" that actually pushes the grease up the cylinder will get caught at the bottom of the new cartridge. Make sure the washer will move freely into the cartridge.
That should do it!

Miller 350p welder gives a "help 3" code.



Code help-3 Indicates that the gun trigger was pulled and held during power up. Release gun trigger and clear fault condition. Also, this display can Indicate no open circuit voltage detected when gun trigger is pulled and no arc detected within 3 seconds, this means that the trigger was held without any metal contact. The machine will shut down in order to avoit the wire to continue to run freely.

To fix:

Turn on the machine without pressing the trigger on the gun. Then increase to the max the wire speed. Then turn off the machine. Press the trigger after the machine was turn off, then without releasing the trigger, turn on the machine and release the trigger after 2 seconds. That will take care of it.

Tdwbit269@aol.commy gun will not shut off even when i pull the trigger, liquid keeps flowing out. good thing is that i am getting something through the hose so that means my machine is working right?


You need a re-build kit for your gun.

The needle that pulls back when you squeeze the trigger is no longer making a seal when you release the trigger.
The problem is worse when you spray thin oil-based paints.

Depending on the gun, Sherwin Williams has kits for the Graco gun. That's where we bought ours for years up until I retired from painting.
Home Depot and Lowes may have parts.

What would cause a pressure washer to cut off after you pull the handle to get the water started


We used power washers for years

When you pull the trigger, the engine is supposed to accelerate because the back-pressure on the pump is released.

The back-pressure is why you're supposed to keep the gun trigger open when starting the engine. It sounds like you're starting the engine with no water passing through the gun.

Inspect the exhaust port >> if exhaust is clogged with carbon or dirt, then the engine will not run at high speed.

The problem may also be cause by a rusted choke lever. If you notice when a small engine accelerates, the choke lever moves up as the carburetor demands more gas.

Start the engine with water passing through the gun >>> move the choke lever a little bit at a time and see what happens. Keep water going out of the gun. When the surfaces are cool, spray WD-40 on the lever and see if you can free it up. WD-40 is extremely flammable.

If your engine will not fire at all by starting with water passing through the gun, then your gas supply might be limited or your carburetor gummed up. Pull off the rubber gas line that connects to the carburetor and see if gas flows.

Next, pull off the air filter and see if the machine runs good without air filter. You may have clogged air filter.

While the carburetor is exposed, spray WD-40 into carburetor. See if you can get engine up to full throttle while spraying WD-40 into carburetor. Keep spraying the WD-40. Keep the water flowing out of the gun.

If the engine throttles up all the way on WD-40 but won't run without it, then your carburetor is probably gummed up.

Our old power washer won't run with the choke set at full throttle. We just got into the habit of leaving the choke alone. We'd pull off the air filter and spray WD-40 into the carburetor so the engine would spark healthy without messing with the choke at all. And we kept the choke about 2/3 open all the time.

New Troy-Bilt 3000 psi - Very Hard to Hot Start


When you run the unit and shut if off, release the pressure from the spray wand before trying to restart the engine. This built up pressure will cause it to be very hard to start as you have found out. If it does not start on the second pull release the pressure again. Another option is do do what I did on mine. I simply put a pull tie on the handle so I can pull the trigger back and use the pull tie to hold the trigger open. Make sure if you do this, that you remove the high pressure orifice from the end of the wand before attempting to start the engine. Otherwise the pressure will come on abruptly and could injure you or do property damage.

Starts but but shuts off after a few seconds


Try to start it with someone holding the trigger open on the spray wand. If it stays running then, but sounds like it's being overloaded and stalls when the trigger is released, it probably needs the unloader valve rebuilt or replaced. If it still does it, it's probably something in the carburetor of the engine.

Ex-Cell VR2500 Builds Pressure but Won't Spray


I have a similar problem and diagnosed it to be a problem with the gun. I spoke to a technician that services this pressure washer and he walked me through all the diagnostic steps. The pump is working because there is pressure being built up and the gun sort of works because you can get water out before the washer is started. The technician said that the mechanism inside the gun is either clogged or broken. I am going to Home Depot or Lowes to purchase a new gun and will try it tonight. Guns are only about $30-40. He said generic is fine as long as the thread matches and PSI is in range. Good luck!
