Power washer Craftsman B&S engine model 20228 - carb not working

Craftsman / Briggs & Stratton Model 20228 - 2200 PSI Pressure Washer. Carb not working. I have taken it apart, and taped open the valve to medium to full-open. It starts after I prime it very nicely, but I have to prime it every couple of seconds to keep it going, else it dies. It's got enough gas in it. Any ideas? Does anyone have pictures of this things with the carg taken off? I'm wondering if a tiny hose may have come off.
Oh. I reassambled the unit with the carb back in place, in case the carb needed the suction from the gas tank in order to pull the gas, when operating.

SOURCE: I have a Briggs & Stratton pressure washer,

If #1 doesn't work, the ports in your carb could be clogged. I just dealt with this problem this weekend. This is a relatively easy fix. Locate your carburetor and find the aluminum bowl underneath. On the bottom of the bowl, you'll find a bolt. Loosen the bolt (gasoline will come out because the bowl is a reservoir for gas, but please make sure you've turned the gas supply off) and remove the bolt and the bowl. Clean any debris out of the bowl. The ports are holes in the bolt you removed. Make sure that air can pass through these holes (I blow through them, but I don't mind the taste of gas too much. Probably NOT healthy. You can use thin wire, carb cleaner, etc..) Reassemble and your motor may start, if this was the problem. Make sure that the bowl seats properly and that you are careful screwing in the bolt, lest you cross-thread it. Hope that helps.

Engine on powerwasher starts but quits running after approx 10 seconds. Engine oil changed, oil is full & tried choke in various positions. Also has fresh fuel in tank. What else can I do


try cleaning the carb that ethanol plays havoc on these small engines if it is not a premix oil and gas unit add a little 2 cycle engine oil to the gas will keep the carbon builup to a minimum not to much it will gunk up your spark plug take the carb apart and clean it with carb cleaner or deisellet dry check your spark plug make sure it is clean and ok that is where I would start

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!

Oil


Remember when your searching for something you can't find the internet is always your best bet. You should also use a good search engine; www.bing.com is one of the best search engines I have ever used. I searched some stores that have the oil your looking for, one online store is www.amazon.com and if you have one near you and they also carry it at Sears. The grade of the oil is definitely weird, 75W90. Also if you would like to look for other stores that carry it go to Bing and type "Briggs & Stratton Pressure Washer Oil" into the search bar.

I have a Blue Max high presure washer, 2200 psi.


Hi Greg. Walk into your nearest Lawn Mower parts supply with your engine model number (usually on the recoil) and they will have the replacement part or repair your old one. It is less expesive to have the old one repaired unless the support struts have broken. 2200 PSI should have a Honda GX160.

Here is another source....
http://www.northerntool.com/shop/tools/product_200327175_200327175

They can range from $32.00 to $68.00 depending on source.

Honda PN is: 28400-ZH8-013ZA (do net search this number) Or call your local Lawn Mower repair Supply with the number.

If you have a Briggs & Stratton engine I will need the ENGINE model number off of the air shroud just above the spark plug.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Craftsman pressure washer constantly fluctuates and then stops


sounds like fuel problem. Either water\trash at bottom of tank, or most likely, carb needs to be disassembled and bowl and jets sprayed out w\carb cleaner.my money is on the latter.
