Open Question

I have a professional 7.75 h briggs & stratton pressure washer. I've hooked up the hose and made sure water was getting to it but water is not going into the tank. Should I go ahead and start it up without water in it?

SOURCE: McCulloch Chainsaw carb not getting fuel

This is the same problem I have with a Mac 3200. I have: (1) A line from the primer bulb to the front port on the carburator. (2) line from fuel tank, with attached fuel filter, to the other primer bulb port. (3) Line from port on back of carb. to ????. I thought it must be a pulse line, but not certain, and don't know where to run it to. Please let me know when you find out.

SOURCE: Briggs and Stratton pressure washer fuel leak

You've hit the nail on the head.The float,needle and seat are stuck wide open.Once the carburetor bowl is full of fuel the float rises up on top which pushes the needle back into the seat shutting of the flow of fuel.As the engine consumes that fuel the float drops and opens the needle and seat filling the bowl and shutting off the fuel again.Things that cause this process to not work are:forgetting to empty or run out the fuel before storing it for the winter.Sediment buildup in the bowl.Mineral deposits in the needle and seat.
Not emptying out the carb can leave water in the bowl which freezes,crushing the float.It also promotes sediment buildup and mineral deposits.The float when crushed or cracked will not float,nor shut off fuel.Sediment takes away capacity of fuel in the bowl,very necessary for wide open throttle.Mineral deposits build up to the point that the needle and seat can't make a good seal so fuel will continue into the carburetor.
Enough information yet?
To repair,take the nut off the bottom of the carburetor bowl.There are the float and needle and seat assemblies.All three need to be replaced,$10 max.After you get the parts replace one piece at a time so you can see how they go together.Next replace the spark plug, engine oil and air cleaner.They are fuel fouled and even if you could get the engine started will only add more damage to your engine.BEFORE you put the new plug in cycle the engine by pulling the starting cord a few times to get rid of the excess fuel.When there's now more fuel in the cylinder replace the plug,filter and oil.
That's it!Take your time and you can do it just fine.Re-post if you have any more troubles.

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.

Pump will freeze in cold weather from water left in sump. Get it running and instead of hooking it up to a water hose, use a short length to take a gallon of so of antifreeze.

Stalling pressure washer


Make sure you have a strong water supply going into it. On the two I have owned, they would struggle and the motor would "rev up" quite a bit if there was even a slight kink in the supply hose, or if the tap wasn't opened all the way.

I have a Briggs & Stratton Pressure Washer it was just working Fine THEN the water stopped coming out of the wand? Any Suggestion


Remove the tip and pull the wand trigger without the tip in. If water comes out then your tip is clogged. Clean the tip and reinstall. Or try a different tip.

Its also possible that there is a kink in the supply hose to the unit.

Try these first, it should solve the problem about 90% of the time

When using the sweep nozzle (yellow tip), the pressure starts and stops but the machine works fine when using the circluar nozzle(red)


usually when the power washer pressure stops the machine is running out of water. the sweep function uses a little more water than the round wash tip. Make sure there are no leaks in the supply hose and that the supply faucet is turned on all the way and has plenty of "flow". also make sure the water connection at the washer is not leaking. use a new rubber washer to make a good seal on the supply hose on both ends. if either end leaks or can **** air, just a little bit of air into the pressure washer will cause it to loose pressure.

How do I winterize a Briggs and Stratton pressure washer


Change engine oil, add fresh stabilized fuel,start and run to circulate new fuel. Use a section of hose and pump som RV antifreeze (the pink stuff) through your pump and hose if you are leaving your hose and wand hooked up.

Hope this helped

No water pressure coming from pump


The pump is bad and needs to be replaced. you have done all the test. On the Briggs they do have kits to rebuild the pump on your system you can just go to there website and get the rebuild kit. It is safer to go through them because they have jsut started producing the rebuild kits, and other companies have tried to copy them, but there kits are worthless. Please rate

I have a briggs & stratton pressure washer that every time I engage the spray hose my pressure washer stops. Why???? I have left it running for a couple mins. before engaging, doesn't seem to help


PROBABLY the valve that admits the water to the pump is sticking. USUALLY bad O-Rings. If the valve sticks closed, the pressure won't build up. If it sticks open, the washer will stall. Most other problems are engine problems due to bad gas, carbureator, etc.

Pressure washer with no pressure


Are you priming the water lines before you switch on the power?
i.e. with power OFF, hook up hose and turn hose on (doesn't need to have much hose pressure), then take your spray gun or attachment and pull the trigger and allow water to flow through the system (at hose pressure obviously). You might need to gravity feed it if its not flowing through...

But you will generally only get pressure once all the air is removed from the lines and the pump is pushing water only... Once you have water flow and lines are primed, switch on pump and see if that solves it.
