Having problems with your Coleman Powermate DuraBuilt 1400 PSI Pressure Washer ?

Gas leaking from carb on Briggs and Stratton engine

\015 I have a Briggs and Stratton 6 HP Quantum engine on DAPC Excell 2300 PSI pressure washer. Have not used it for 2 or 3 years. When I wanted to use it recently I replaced the oil and spark plug. Added gas and it leaked truely from the carb. I opened the air filter and noticed the gas coming out of the hole from the carb. It drained completely. I cranked the engine and it started with a little smoke and I shut it down immediatley. Brigg's site recommends changing a gasket. How can I make sure it is not water in the carb? After all if there was any water in the carb shouldn't it have spilled when I drained the oil. The oil has to be drained from the oil inlet where the dip stick is by tilting the whole thing on it's side. What is the bowl that is referred to in some FixYa suggestions. I cleaned car carbs, dismantled engines, replaced cluth plate but am not familiar with 2-cycle engine carb! Your help will be appreciated.\015

I have a Briggs & Stratton gas power washer. This is the 1st time this year that I have used it. I put in fresh gas, hooked up the water supply. The engine started and then quickly stopped. I had to release the water pressure in the hose before I could pull start the engine. The only way to keep the engine running is to hold down the spray nozzle trigger. Once that is released the pressure in the hose builds up and the engine stops.

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.

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!
