Having problems with your Briggs & Stratton 2200 PSI Gas Pressure Washer ?

I have a 6.0 HP craftsman PW and i rebiuld the pump with the kit for new orings and sleaves. Now when i try to start the motor it is tight. It will only run for a very short time. Is there a pressure relief that i missed??


Answers :

No this sounds like the unloader valve . What dose is when the trigger is off it allows the presserized water to recurilate back through the punp . The theromal relif valve is just what it says tempature sensitive blows at 145 degrees and works more like the thermostat in your car. The unloaded valve is under the pressure control knob and its part of it most of them are not serivceable but it may just be stuck if you take it off spray some WD 40 in it you may be able free it up It is likely it has an adjustment on the top of it it mabey under a plastic cap that you have to pop off but the adjustment is not likely the problem but may help you in freeing to needle valve inside of it .The problom with powerwashers is every body wants to sell them but they don't build them . A half of dozen companys make the parts any there it olny 2 differant disgns for the unloaders and pumps and the cam system that makes the pump turn so if you need parts you realy have to do some home work on line and check a lot of differant ID numbers Well i hope this will help you some but try to free the needle in the unloader valve first because that is your problem

It sounds like an air lock. Try this: With the machine off, connect the hose to the washer and let it run for several minutes to get all of the air out of the hose, and to purge any air out of the pump. Shut off the water, and connect the high pre ... Briggs & Stratton Pressure Washers

I have a Northstar pressure washer powered by a honda GC160 engine. The last time i used it, water leaks from the bottom of the unit, whether it is running or not. When running, the pressure is fine. I have felt underneath and it appears that the water is coming from the second opening from the rear. Is there a pressure relief valve there. I have a manual but cannot find any descriptors for underneath the motor.

I have a pressure washer with a Honda gcv190 engine. The motor runs great but there isn't any water pressure. I removed the manifold and pump and found some mineral deposits and cleaned everything out and while attempting to reinstall the pump on the crankshaft I noticed the key was missing. Upon further inspection it appears that the key was missing from the beginning or had sheared off and then disintegrated. (There were a lot of metal shavings in the pump shaft recess).

I ran my pressure washer today in an effort to run some "stabilized" gas through it for the winter. For some reason the pump began to push oil out the top relief hole. If thats not clear, it's a feature that looks like a priming pump but is rigid. By the way, the oil appeared a bit nourish gray. Not sure if that means anything. Any ideas?

Our washer had been woring fine earlier this afternoon. After a short (about 10 minute) break, it developed only hose pressure. We disassembled the nozzle, figuring there might be some obstruction; also made sure the hose wasn't kinked. No luck even though the motor is apparently running fine. It's about one year old. What do I do now?

I have a Generac pressure washer, model #01450-0, with a Honda 5hp motor. The motor runs fine, but the pressure hose pulsates as if the pump is intermittently making pressure, and the pressure out of the sprayer is about half of what it should be. A friend suggested replacing the seals in the unloader. I bought an unloader kit, replaced everything and it still runs the same.

I have a 5HP Honda engine installed on a Excell pressure washer. While the engine readily starts, it will not continue to run unless I keep the choke setting nearly completely closed. When I activate the pressure gun, it seems to generate adequate pressure, however, when the trigger is released, the engine continues to run at the same rpm instead of the normal variable rpm that most engines operate at during idling periods.

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???

My karcher hds 745 is running but just won't build up pressure, this occurred after a really cold few weeks this winter and I hadn't put anti-freeze through the machine to winterize it. There's no water coming from the bottom of the machine when it's running as i've read that if the pump seals are faulty water will escape from the pump etc. The machine motor runs ok but no pressure is acheived on the gauge whatsoever. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance Paul.

Northstar Hot Water Pressure Washer (model #157322) While using the pressure washer the safety relief valve activated venting steam and hot water from it...
