I have a Briggs & Stratton Pro 3400 pressure washer that I got new last year and used for maybe 5 hours and it worked great. Have had it stored since then with stabilizer in the gas (I didn't run it dry) and now it won't run for more than a minute or two without dying. A dealer said it was probably bad gas and I now know that even with the stabilizer I should have run it dry last year before storing. Everything is like brand-new including plug and air filter so it must be the gas/carberator gunk

Honda CU2400 1-MHC has been sitting in my parents garage for about 2 years. It was used once or twice. It looks new. I tried to start it and it wouldn't. I drained the gas and put new premium gas in it and it started but it won't stay running and the pressure is not what it should be. It doesn't clean as well as the electric one I used last time. So, my problem is, it won't stay running and when it is running it doesn't have enough pressure. Any ideas???


After sitting that long, I'd guess the carburetor linkages etc., are partially seized and the governor is not operating as it should to allow proper RPM's when under load. Real good chance carburetor is gummed up good too. I'd get carb serviced, but ... Pressure Washers

I have a Karcher 2,600 PSI 2.3 GPM Gas Pressure Washer G 2600 VHR that I have used once last summer. I have stored the PW in my basement with no fuel in the gas tank. The PW was never exposed to freezing temps. I cannot get the PW to start. I put new fuel into the tank, the oil is good, I drained the carburetor, and the spark plug works (tested it). I pull the cord and the engine doesn't turn. Fuel value is on, choke is pulled, and the starter switch is turned on. System is practically brand new

Hi. I have a Briggs & Stratton 2800PSI gas pressure washer. I can get it to start, but after about 5 min, then it quits. I have cleaned the carb, change oil, changed plug, new gas, cleaned/checked air filter. Nothing will keep it running. Wondering if it may be not enough water pressure, but would that cause it to stop like that? When it runs, it does a good job, but it stops just as you get going. Do you have any other suggestions? Thanks!

Dear Sir/Madam,I have owned a Beko DW450 slimline dishwasher for 13 months and used it only twice, i wanted to use it last night but when i switched it on the drain pump activated and would not switch off. I powered down the dishwasher to see if that would reset it but unfortunately when i started it again it did the same thing - drain pump activated but would not stop running, it is impossible at the moment to carry out a wash programme. Does anyone have any idea on this problem. Thanks, Patric


... Bosch SHU5315UC Dishwasher

My B&S 2050psi, 2.0 GPM, 3.75HP, doesn't want to start. I prime it as per the directions, good gas, spark plug good. I can flood it with gas and it runs until all the gas is used up then stops. I don't know why it's not able to get any gas from the tank on it's own. Once it starts shouldn't there be a vaccum that draws gas from the tank? Any ideas?
