Craftsman 2250 PSI 6 HP Briggs & Stratton power washer won't run

This unit was in storage for about 3 yrs but was drained of all fuel. Now won't start. Have narrowed problem down to fuel delivery. Gas tank & fuel line are clear. Disassembled carb and flushed with carb cleaner. Can get it to fire by putting a few drops of fuel directly into cylinder. Runs for few seconds and stalls. Are there there internal passages in the carb that need servicing? All other carb functions seem to be normal (float, needle & choke & throttle plates). Any help would be appreciated.
Thanx;
Harvey

Your engine model # 128602 Type 0212-E1. Forget about ordering from Sears and paying shipping and waiting a week. Go to your local Briggs and Stratton dealer (most shops are) and buy part # 694395. Should cost about $3.00

SOURCE: Briggs and Stratton 20hp twin cylinder runs only with full choke

Had one on my saw mill had this problem as well Try pulling bowl off bottom of carby as the float can get **** with old fuel especially ethanol fuels as they attract water bowl is normally held on with one center screw on bottom of carby. Note always turn fuel off and let engine run out of fuel as this stops goop from building up in carby

Are you sure you got all the passageways in the carb cleaned out?

How did it look when you first disassebled it? Full of rust and gunk or just shellac on the surfaces?

Take the fuel line off at the carb and MAKE SURE that fuel flows freely. I have seen trash get in the tank and plub the other end up. Does it have a vaccuum operated fuel pump?

Has gas but will not start


To conclusively diagnose the problem though remove the air filter and spray a little carb cleaner in the air intake and try to start the unit. Most of the time, I have seen fuel system varnished up on these units from sitting for a long time. has this been sitting with fuel in it? Fuel actually starts breaking down is a matter of 30 days. I would drain the fuel and try fresh gas, and then cleaning the carburetor, The carburetor on your unit is fairly easy to rebuild.

Started by Craftsman 2700 PSI , 2.3 GPM Briggs & Stratton Powered Pressure Washer for first time in 9 months. Added new oil, and gas. started but is smoking from muffler and is dripping what appears to...


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!

I have a Craftsman (B & S) pressure washer 7 HP 2900 psi 2.3 GPM Model No. 580.752410. It's about 4 yrs old and 2 years ago I put a seal kit 193807GS into it after it failed to put out proper pressure....


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.

I do like to know if this washer is good enough for my business as a used car dealer? Briggs & Stratton Murray 020456 2400 PSI 20 GPM 190cc Briggs Stratton


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.

Need to know where oil drain plug is on 6.75 hp Briggs & Stratton engine on 2550 psi troy bilt pressure washer!!


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.
