Having problems with your Briggs & Stratton Pressure Washers ?

Have a Husky Pressure Washer 2200 psi, HU80931. I don't have an owner manual. It has set for about a year. When I started the washer there was very little pressure. Did some cleaning and it was a little better, but now there is no pressure and I am having trouble keeping it started. Can you help? The washer was purchased at Home Depot and it has Briggs and Stratton the the washer too. Thank You, RJ


Answers :

The pump is clogged, and there is no way to clear it...

You may want to consider soaking it in CKR, but you have a low probability of success...

Your best bet is to go to eBay, and look for a newer model of that pump (around $70.00 including shipping), and install that. You'll get a better pump, stronger output, and and easy install.

It'll ring your pressure washer back to life.

Otherwise, place an ad on Craigslist, and hope you get $20.00 for it "as is".

I recently replaced the water seals, V-packing & all six check valves in a CW-3504-4MGH pump on a MiTM 3504 pressure washer that had very low pressure. Usually this would fix most pressure problems on most machines, but in this case it had little to no effect. I suspect that the unloaded is the culprit in this case, but since I have had little experience in repairing unloaders (let alone adjusting them). I would appreciate feedback from anyone that has experience in this area. Thanks

The last time I used the pressure washer was running fine. A few minutes later I tried to start it up and could barely turn it over. I removed the recoil and could turn it a little easier backwards. The motor is a Honda GC190 on a karcher pressure washer and has 20 -30 hours of running time. Thanks Clint

Sounds like the regulator is sticking or is airbound. loosen the water connection and then tighten it back. Could also be that the trigger gun is faulty or needs adjustment. Hope this helped ... Karcher 2500 PSI Pressure Washer

Hi. I'm scratch building a pressure washer using a Comet BXD2831G pump. If I don't plan on using any type of detergent, is it OK (or manditory) to plug the detergent intake to keep it from sucking air? I would use a short piece of hose over the intake with a screw in the opposite end. Also, is it possible to set the pressure by ear? If so, what should I listen for? Thanks for your help!


No need to plug the injector because under pressure (internal force/pressure) keeps valve shut. It only opens when large nozzle (black tip) is used lowering internal pressure causing siphon effect. Some chemical injectors have a thumbwheel ... Comet GXD2527G Pressure Washer Pump

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!


If it wont start, check for spark.how you do that,ok take the spark plug wire out put it close to the sparkplug(use some gloves or something to insulate your self from get electric shot from the spark) find some one who pull the start rope, if you do ...

I have a Karcher 550M pressure washer and was using today when all of a sudden the water started to pour through the handle hence lost the pressure of the water. Is this a rubber washer issue or the gun needs replacing or simpler than that. To be honest although I have had the washer for about 3/4 years now It is hardly used. Also can I fix it and where would I purchase the allen key to replace. Thanks Brian

I have a Karcher 330 electric power washer. When connected and set to highest pressure (on variable wand) I get no motor action unless I reduce wand setting, then I get a little boost but not much. If I use high pressure conical wand I get high pressure sometimes, other times motor does not go and no pressure is delivered. I have replaced the high pressure hose.

Hi- I have a Simoniz S1600 pressure washer and usually when I first turn it on, the motor turns on to build up pressure. Now the motor won't kick in no matter what I do. Water still comes out of the gun as a small stream but there is no pressure. There are no reset buttons on the exterior of the machine. Thanks!
