Having problems with your Craftsman 2700 PSI Briggs Stratton Powered Pressure Washer ?

If i didnt have enough oil when using and broke it, can it be repaired or is it cheaper to get a new pressure washer


Answers :

Hi, with lack of oil, I would say that the engine is ruined internally. This of course depends on what is broken internally. One can purchase another engine or what is called a long block. The long block consists of the engine without all the external parts. You would then transfer the parts from your old engine to the new one. I would check at a Briggs dealer near you as to what options they have. Sometimes the long block is a cheaper alternative and you reuse your pressure washer pump with it. Labor is a big factor in this as well. If you are able and can do the work then this is also a consideration. With a new complete unit however, you get a warranty. Another factor is the age of your unit. It might be better to get a newer one as to the usage of your existing 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!

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

I have used my Honda Pressure washer 3 times over a period of 1-2 years. I could not get it to start today. I did not drain the old gas but added some new gas (which was probably a few months old).

I recently purchased a Dewalt DXPW 3835 Pressure Washer from Home Depot.... After 4 hours use I no longer get any pressure. After depressing the trigger, I get a second of pressure and then it just dies. I called DeWalt and they couldn't help and to take it to the Warranty Shop. They informed that they wouldn't be able to look at for 2 weeks so I took it back to HD and got a new one and this one does the same thing. I'm pretty sure it's probably a pretty quick fix but no one seems able to te

I borrowed my nieghbors power washer. It worked the first day all day. In the morning i filled the gas with a fuel stabiler, and 30 oil. I may have over filled it. Upon turning it on the oil started leaking from the air filetr compartment. It starts, but then smokes starts to fume and all the oil leaks. Did I break it or is it a easy fix. I cleaned the filter housing. Also the filter was soaked with oil. should i get a new filter and install it or what is the solution. need help.


You will need to get a new filter, and drain some of the oil out of the machine. If you over fill these this will happen. 90% of the time nothing is broken. ... Karcher 2500 PSI Pressure Washer

I got the pressure washer started - lots of smoke etc after not having used 3 years. I then poured in wrong oil to top it off - my brother's chain saw bar oil. DARN. After 3-4 minutes it started rattling and stopped. Can't pull the chord to get started. Did it seize the engine? I have drained all oil. Can I try using a cleaner, light weight oil to try to unlock it?


Nope! you have blown the seals and most likely the cylinder is full of water. You will need to take it to the repairer to have it cleaned checked and new seals fitted. $200 ... Karcher 1750 psi Electric Pressure Washer

If so,how do I repair it?

I have two DeVilbiss issues: First, on my pressure washer, I no longer get pressure on "high" mode from the hose. I prime the pump but it doesn't seem to be creating enough force for a high pressure.

I need a new dishwasher What do you recommend between Kenmore Elite. Quietguard Ultra. Model no. 665.77962K703 versus LG model LDF7920 I get conflicting information- a repairman we know says LG is the better make, needing far fewer repairs than Kenmore in general ( this washer I am thinking of buying was made by whirpool, I was told at the Sears store) But online reports claim LGs need the most repairs. HELP OR... do you have something else to recommend?
