I have an Excell VR2500 pressure washer with B & S 6.5 HP engine. It was running fine, but then stalled out and now will not start. Has clean gas and full oil. I pulled the spark plug it is producing a sufficient spark when starter cord is pulled. Any ideas what might be causing the problem? Please help.

Hard starting 6hp Briggs and Stratton power washer engine. I poured a teaspoon of gas into the cylinder; reinserted the spark plug and with one pull in ran fine. This is a choke start engine and it may take 12 to 15 pulls to start on a cold engine. The unit is clean. The air cleaner is new. The spark plug is new. The unit is 2 years old with very little use.

The engine starts cold after 2 or three pulls, runs ok initially, but seems to have slightly less power. After a few minutes I can turn off the choke. When teh engine warms up and runs for about 15 minutes, there is a definite power decrease and the motor sounds like it will stall. If I paly with the choke, it does not stall, but has little power to pump water. If the engine does stall or it is turned off, it will not restart until it cools down.


I would first try draining the carb bowl, if you look at where the choke lever is and look below that you should see a clear red tube with a flat head screw below that, if you just turn the screw out the carb will drain. If you still have an issue yo ... Karcher G3025OH Pressure Washer

My powerwasher(2500psi) with a B&S QUANTUM 120000 gas motor will stall when hot, pressure drops significantly, and is hard to restart. When it does re-start, it stalls again in 2 minutes. This behavior started recently after working fine for 2 days. I changed the oil-no difference.


I assume you did plug and filter change. Check the plug wire for fire when hot or problem occurs; it should be pretty visible- don't shoch yourself. Check that fuel is reaching carb, check tank for debris. You may need to have valve adjusted. G ... Pressure Washers

Engine does not start. I ran it about two weeks ago and it worked fine. I took the spark plug out and it was dry. I made sure there was gas in it. I tried some starting fluid by spraying into air intake and it start running for a short time until the starting fluid ran out. I removed the carb bowl and there was gas in it. However the inside of the bowl and the float had brown deposits and looks like rust. So I think the main jet has been clogged up with a particle. How do I clear it? Where do I

My pressure washer starts fine, shoots water OK. After running for 5-10 minutes cleaning siding I shut off machine. I go to start it again within a minute or two and the thing feels like it's just about seized. If i wait until the motor is completely cool, it will pull start freely and start right up.
