Question about Briggs & Stratton Power Products 1539 Pressure Washer

1 Answer

Engine wont stay running

I have a Briggs and Stratton 2200 pressure washer with a 4.5 engine and I can't keep it running, you prime it and it runs for a couple seconds and stalls. It stayed running a couple times idling rough but it stalled as soon as I tried spraying the pressure washer.
Engine code is: 1 OH902 / 0113E1.
I checked the air cleaner (seems clean) and primer (squirts fine) and cleaned the plug. Unit is not run very much. This is the first time I have tried to start it this year and no I didn't drain the gas last year, I never had an issue in prior years. I remove the tank and carb to look at the float but couldn't find a float.

It is a diaphram carb. Doe's the primer **** straight gas or does it have air bubbles in it? If it has bubbles in it then it is a leak in the fuel line.
If not then Unhook the intake fuel line and pump the bulb until all of the gas is out of it. Then pour the gas out of the tank and rinse it out with new gas. Pour in new gas and it should be ok.

Engine runs fine but will not spray


Check all of your inlet hoses, one may have a kink or a blocked up filter screen. If nothing is clogged your pump has broken and will need replaced.

Won't stay running


Pressure washer when you first try to start them that stop underload. We had the same type of problem with 11 hp Honda if you hold the trigger open the motor will be under less load we found by running the motor for about a minute it would work normally. Remember to make sure the water hose is turned on pull the trigger on, until water is coming out of the wand , now try and start the motor but also hold the trigger open, now you will not be building maximum pressure, after about a minute release the trigger and see if it keeps running.

Pull start won't pull. Engine was running then stopped. Now the pull cord won't extend


First. Turn off the water....Release all of the pressure off of the hose and pressure washer. Try and pull again. If it still won't pull check to see if there is oil in the engine. The engine may have locked up.

What kind of oil do I use in my 675 series engine


4 stroke synthetic is most likely what you'd want to run if it's a new unit to yourself. Otherwise any 4 stroke motor oil is fine, you can find it at any retailer that sells small engine machinery.
