Question about Garden

Open Question

I have a Campbell Hausfeld 2200 psi power washer that is roughly 10 years old. It has a gas powered 6 hp Briggs & Straton motor. Unfortunately the washer has been dormant and was stored outdoors in Wisconsin for the past several years. i've dismantled some of the exterior parts to clean out the spider webs and get at the motor. I pulled the spark plug and found that the piston still has compression and that the valves are operating. now then I've lost the owners manual and simply need to know if there is a fuel filter and where it might be; what type of oil I need to use; and lastly if I need to replace the throttle spring that has become fairly rusty and somewhat lifeless?

SOURCE: starts and idles and runs half speed ok -- dies off on full throt

Since you don't indicate the make and model, I can't give you specifics, but when I had this problem it turned out to be a dirty carb. This can cause uneven fuel flow and loss of power. At full throttle, you may not be getting sufficient fuel to work properly. Try cleaning the carb a nd update this with the results.

SOURCE: I want a phone number

I agree. At least give us a phone number that is disconnected so we know you care.

Anyway, for a few bucks more, fixya has experts who get paid to hear your pain. Pay them to help you get the job done. See if fixya works for you.

If these companies offered phone service, they'd be covered up with calls, and the folks answering the phones would have to be as expert as you are at your job ... and they'd have to know every single model and part number and assembly feature. That would be hard to find professional phone talkers. But fixya is trying to fill the gap.

I can see the companies are changing. More of them are posting manuals. And posting their old manuals too. But the manuals do NOT have the level of detail that professionals like you need. They need to post more detail. But I think they have short manuals to save paper when they mail out a product .... on-line they could have longer manuals.

A lot of people are saying the same thing you are. Things change when we complain.

Bump up a dollar and try the fixya experts, and then speak up if it doesn't work.

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....

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.
