Question about Briggs & Stratton Prosumer 20324 Gas Pressure Washer
Purchased new 3,000 psi Pressure Washer, easy assembly, added oil and fresh gasoline, connected to 25+ psi water supply, and was delighted when engine started on the first pull. Unfortunately, subsequent hot starts were very difficult. In several cases, could not get engine re-started until it cooled down. Finally reached the stage where I could get the engine started if I held down the trigger on the Spray Gun. This is really awkward since it is very hard to hold down the trigger, hold the unit, and pull the starter rope at the same time.....Very disappointed in hot starting capabilities of this pressure washer....
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.
