Brute 2500 2.0 GPM pressure washer will not start

The usual culprit for the motor not starting is the carburetor.

If left for roughly a week with gas still inside, the gas will begin to breakdown because of the ethanol inside it. This will clog up the carburetor and cause the engine to stop.

Try to remove the cup of the bottom of the carburetor and check to see if the gas inside is clean or cloudy. If it cloudy, it will likely have also left a layer of varnish-like film over the entire cup and that will be clogging your engine.

You can remove the carburetor and clean it, remove the old gas from your tank as well, and refill it with clean gas. If you don't feel comfortable taking it all apart, take it to a service center to have it checked out.

Below is a photo of the film that the carburetor should have if the gas has broken down.

Pressure washer has been sitting up for about 2 years.. worked perfectly before I parked it.. lol.. But, I put a new spark plug on, cleaned the filter, sprayed carb cleaner in it drained the gas tank and...

Did you use Gas additive when you parked it 2 years ago? Sounds like the Carburetor is gummed up. With the gov't mandate of 10% gas your carbureted engines are very unhappy. Ethanol absorbs moisture and in no time at all you have a carburetor that is sitting with water in the Bowl. Take the Bowl off the carburetor take down and clean the jets. Sometimes the Needle valve Seat, If made of rubber will melt and let only a tiny bit of gas in to fill the bowl. After a time the engine burns more gas then the seat will allow in and the engine will stall. Ethanol gas: Worse gas mileage, bad for carburetors and more expensive.. Thanks Gov't.

Project Pro runs for about 4 seconds then dies. Have checked all levels and spark plug

Dump the existing fuel and try fresh fuel.Remove the bowl from the bottom of the carburetor and clean.Try a fuel additive that removes moisture and extends the life of the fuel. Good luck!

I am trying to chang the oil in my 2100. and i've turned the yellow pice at the bodom and i still have oil in it.

You cannot empty oil completely out of a power washer without a suction hose

Do not turn the power washer on its side or upside down or oil will run into carburetor


The pump oil comes about half way up dip stick >>> use SAE20 or SAE30 non detergent motor oil
The engine oil comes about half way up dip stick >>> use 10W30 for engine

My power-washer suffers from same problem after sitting idle.

After paying for a new carburetor, I discovered how important it is to drain the gas if washer is going to sit idle.

Another time, we had a problem with the screen covering exhaust outlet. Deposits from the engine + dirt clogged the screen. Although it's not the solution for everybody, we broke the screen open with a screwdriver and the machine ran fine after that.

Small gas engines require 3 things. Compression, spark, and fuel. Take out spark plug. Put finger over spark plug hole and pull cord or push starter. Do you feel suction? If yes, then you have compression.

If machine will not turn over at all, then your motor might have run out of oil. Power washer needs oil in 2 places. It needs oil for the engine just like a lawn mower. Oil plugs are located low on each side of engine. It doesn't hurt to change oil, but do NOT NOT turn small engine upside down or oil will get into carburetor which requires removal and cleaning. I learned that the hard way.

The power washer also needs oil for the pump head. This is the box attached to front of engine. Usually 10W20 non-detergent is a good choice. Oil is usually about half way up inside pump head.

Now hook spark-wire back to spark plug. Hold spark plug in hand. Touch threads of spark plug to metal spark plug opening. Now pull cord or push starter. Do you see sparking in the spark plug gap? If yes, then you have spark. Put new spark plug in anyway. If no, then you need parts from small engine repair service.

Spark plug is in. Take off air filter so you have access to carburetor air intake. Put fresh gas in tank. Use starter spray or WD-40 as a starting accelerant. Set your choke to start engine. Spray starter fluid into carburetor opening and pull cord or push starter. The engine should fire up on the starter fluid. If engine doesn't fire, then try setting choke in different positions. If engine doesn't fire up then carburetor is suspect.

If engine fires but dies, keep spraying starter fluid into carburetor to see if you can keep it going that way ... and then move choke in different positions ... you might need extra hands for that maneuver.

If machine turns on, but dies when filter is put back, then filter might be clogged. Time for a new filter anyway.

Finally check the fuel filter and fuel line below the gas tank. It usually has a hex head bolt. Loosen bolt and see if fuel is able to fall out of tank. Loosen rubber fuel line at both ends and see if fuel is flowing. This will tell you if fuel can get to carburetor.

Usually these measures get the thing going or tell you if professional service is needed.

Honda Pressure Washer HP 5 not starting

You can try spraying some carburetor cleaner into the carb. If it starts for a minute, your carburetor need cleaning. When you added new gas did you remove the old gas first? Is the air filter clean?
