Question about Campbell Hausfeld Garden
After sitting over the winter, our pressure washer will not run consistently this year. It will start and run for about 1 minute, then surges a few times and dies as if fuel starved. After a few pulls, it will repeat this over and over.
I have pulled, disassembled, and cleaned the carburetor thoroughly, and replaced the spark plug. This model has some sort of automatic throttle, but it still dies even if I hold the throttle open.
The problem is the plastic float in the carburetor, it's not adjustable and after sitting up with gas in it it distorts. Save yourself the trouble and buy a new one, you can get them online for $15-$20.

Remove float bowl and clean. Drain any water out of tank through fuel line.
