Open Question

I have a B&S pressure washer that has sat for a long time and it had fuel in the tank. What can I do to make it run again without replacing parts. It was only used one weekend two years ago.

SOURCE: karcher k2400hh pressure washer, water pressure cuts out.

Hello cikanek:

Try this:

From your posting, I assume you have removed the splash cap and the nylon bypass valve cover. Connect the water supply to the pump and connect the high pressure hose and wand to the pump outlet. Wad up a small towel and place it over the bypass valve opening to catch the valve insert when it pops out. With the engine throttle closed, pull the starter cord several times to see it the valve insert will pop out. If it doesn't come out after two or three pulls, set the throttle to low and start the engine. I have performed this procedure a number of times and the valve insert always pops out. There is no real danger of the valve parts getting seriously airborn since the actual pump output volume is very low (2.5 Gal/min).

Good luck,
Ed

SOURCE: Pressure washer sputters and stalls when trigger is engaged

Hi k2times01
It is a always a good idea to clean out the gas tank and use new fuel, however, this sounds like an RPM problem. Try adjusting the RPM up a tad and see if it runs better when you load it. If the RPM isn't the problem, you may have to clean the carburetor thoroughly.

SOURCE: Honda gas power pressure washer runs for awhile then cuts off.

did you pour all of the old gas out before you started to use it. Sometimes condensation builds up in gas tank when stored. You need to dump old gas an put in new gas.

SOURCE: Honda GCV160 5.5 on a pressure washer runs only intermittently

The problem is the plastic float in the carburetor, it's not adjustable and after sitting up with gas in it it distorts. Save yourself the trouble and buy a new one, you can get them online for $15-$20.

SOURCE: i have a k7.91 pressure washer the motor runs but stops or pulses

This sounds like a problem with the pressure sensor which is located on the water inlet side of the pump. This switches the power to the motor when there is sufficient inlet pressure and water flow. This pressure switch can get partially siezed up, and not operate correctly.

You will need to dismatle the unit and identify the pressure switch, dismantle it and lubricate it with silicone grease.

1996, cadillac, deville getting codes pc0171 &pc0174,what does this mean?


Fuel trim lean, banks 1 & 2. That's a pretty strong indication that you should check the fuel pump pressure at the fuel rail, and check the fuel flow rate while you're there. There's a good chance that your fuel pump is just about ready to be replaced.

If you see good pressure & flow rate, run a couple of jugs (not at the same time) of carburetor & fuel injector cleaner through the gas tank. It's possible that all your injectors have just gotten so dirty that they can't give you a full-rich mixture.

You'd best do it fairly soon - the engine is running lean, and it can't tolerate that for any great long time without some damage.

We have a 6.25 /Briggs & Straton we have cleaned


You should have two fuel lines going from the carb to the tank, one has a filter,

make sure both lines are good without any breaks or cracks. if the filter is dirty

you may need to replace it. you can fish it out of the gas tank by making a hook

on a wired coat hanger, try to remove the filter and put the line back in the tank

make sure they are both submerged, if it runs just replace the filter, good luck!

Have a 2400 karcher press. washer engine starts runs fine for 15 sec . then quits .I walk away and come back in 10 minutes does same thing. Checked tank and it is not plugged. Appears to have vacuum fuel...


It sounds like the fuel bowl is not filling quickly enough. Turn the fuel tap off. Then take the fuel bowl off the carby. You will see a plastic float. Above the float is a needle (small pin like) that should shut the fuel off & let it run also. Turn the fuel back on,the fuel should be running out quickly. Push the float up and the fuel should stop running. If no fuel is coming out then the needle is stuck. Clean with carby cleaner and push up & dowm a few times to ensure it is working OK. You may need to replace needle. Turn fuel off. Put fuel bowl back on and turn fuel tap on. Test.

if there is a fuel filter running completely out of fuel sometimes allows all of the bad stuff in the fuel tank to plug the fuel filter (if it has one). press the primer bulb until you can hear fuel, then it should start.

Campbell Hausfeld 2000 Psi Gas Pressure starts and runs for a stort time then dies out and is hard to start with the water pressure still on. Will run for a stort time only after it has sat fo awhile....


Replace or clean with spray carburetor cleaner, the fuel filter which is likely plugged. Make sure the fuel tank vent is open. Sometimes, a fuel system cleaner is helpful like 'Seafoam". Make sure the oil is clean and topped up. A muffler can sometimes plug up and cause a similar problem. Hope this helps!

could be the fuel pump ...you will need to do a fuel pressure test on it ..the pressure should be 63 anything lower even so much as a few lbs will cause this to happen ...as well if it sat that long i would consider a complete tune up and check all vacuum lines for dry-rot

Pressure causes pressure washer to shut off


The engine requires more fuel at higher loads. If unit sat up for some time the jets in carbureator may have become partially plugged due to varnishing. If this is the case, the easiest fix, is to add 'Sea Foam' fuel system cleaner to gas tank. engine may have to run several minutes for this to work. I reccomend tripling the dosage amount reccomended on the label. This should also resolve the problem if fuel starvation is caused by 'sticking needle and seat' problems. If engine stalls with an abrubt clunk, then unloader problems may be responsible. I unit sat up for a long-long time, you may be better off removing the carbureator and rebuild it or have it rebuilt professionally.
