Will not shut off have to run it out of gas


It won't shut down because the gizmo that shorts the spark plug is not working. If possible take an insulated screw driver and either pull the spark plug wire off the plug or try to touch the end of the plug and the engine at the same time. If the switch is in the gas lever there may be an adjustment on or in it that shorts the plug out.

Have a snap on 7 horsepower power washer will not start seems like it has no spark suggestions


pull spark plug wire. Insert a screwdriver into the wire and hold screwdriver close to the terminal (top of spark plug). Then try to start it to confirm you have spark. If no spark, you may need new coil.

My 580.752000 pressure washer now starts and immediately shuts down. It is as if it is full choked and stops due to over rich. Sooty spark plug and muffler replaced. Also new carb installed. Still problem...


This seems to be an electrical problem, replace your spark plug, & lead. make sure your electricals are all OK.
Check your "Points" also check, your magneto too... Ensure you have a good healthy spark.
many problems are caused by bad electrics,and mistaken for all sorts of problems, this all needs to be checked thoroughly.
Also check your air filter too.

Dewalt Pressure washer keeps shutting off for no reason. plenty of gas and oil, water running to it. starts fine and as soon as I start spraying it shuts down.


Had a similar issue with my dewalt 4200 pw. Unit starting shutting off after spraying for about 5 min. Then difficult to restart, but would start again eventually only to shut down a few min later. Had new engine oil, new pump oil, good gas. I changed the spark plug and unit runs great again!

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.

Replaced stop switch and it still won't shut off!


While attending college, I worked at a tool rental center and learned many tips and tricks from the mechanics. The problem that we heard the most from customers was that the machine would not start. Your your machine at least starts and runs fine, however will not shut down with the factory kill switch. Many times when replacing the mag. (spark coil) the kill wire would rub against the flywheel and break or over time the conductor wire will break inside the insulation. If you kill switch only has one wire, then all the kill switch does is short the mag to ground. Simple test is to remove spark plug, re-connect wire to plug, touch plug to engine and pull rope to observe spark, then short the tab on the magnito to ground, should be no spark. If you still have spark, coil is defective however good enough to run engine. Kill with choke or pull wire. If no spark with test, make new wire from tab of coil to kill switch or any switch that will short tab to ground. Good Luck
