This is going to sound way to over simplified but here goes. They have a low oil level sensor and when the oil gets low OR the sensor fails it kills the ignition. If the engine oil level is fine and you still have no spark.. disconnect ONE lead of the sensor and check spark again. If you have spark the Oil level Sensor is either very dirty or has failed.

Gas ran out of sparkplug hole


If you had raw gas in the cylinder to where it poured out of the plug hole you most likely have a carburator problem. Inside the carburator is a float and needle, the float pushes the needle into a seat when the bowl is full of gas so no more gas will flow into the bowl or the engine. If the float won't float or the needle is damaged or has dirt between it and the seat the gas will continue to flow into the carburator and on into the engine. If enough gas gets into the cylinder the starter won't be able to turn the motor over. You should also check your oil, usually when gas gets into the cylinder it runs into the crankcase and thins the oil to where it will damage the motor if run for any length of time.

I believe you are right about heat induce electrical problem.

Pressure washer won't start. It has gas, oil and I turned the switch to turtle and to rabbit position. Does it matter if water is on first or not? It won't start either way.


Turn the water on, hold trigger down and let water run thru the hose to prime the air out of the hose. If it still will not start check the spark plug and clean it or replace it. A bad spark plug will keep it from starting

if it wont start, check for spark.how you do that,ok take the spark plug wire out put it close to the sparkplug(use some gloves or something to insulate your self from get electric shot from the spark) find some one who pull the start rope, if you dont see any spark between wire and spark plug, tehre its not spark ,it will never start.you will have to remove the start recoil on the botton is like a damper whitch will have to be remove also ,on botton of it its like a coil whitch with the rotation of the damper when you pull the starter rope provoke the spark and send it to spark plug along with the gas combution get the engine started.that coil some time goes bad and have to be change.if you have electric starter. check the starter also.good luck

It could easily be an electrical issue, or not. Get a spark tester (hooks up to the spark plug). Pep boys, Autozone, and Napa all sell them for less than $10. Check for spark when the mower has quit. If no spark, most likely need to replace the ignition module. Also check the flywheel key, if it is has been sheared or even knicked, the engine will run hot.
If you still have spark when engine has failed, check the vent on the gas cap. A clogged vent will cause a vacuum to form in the tank and stall the engine.
Good luck!
