Question: Low Pressure
I inherited this power washer and there are several things going on. First I cannot start it unless I have the trigger on the wand pulled. Second I have low pressure and when I try to set the wand to high pressure the engine immediately cuts out. Finally the engine cuts out as soon as I let go of the trigger. Any ideas?
Question: Gas Leaking Out Of Unit
First time using this unit this year. Poured gas into the gas tank and gas began to run out, through the filter housing. I took the filter housing off and the gas appeared to be running through the carburetor rather than a seal or hose.
A: A carburetor problem
B: A gasket problem
C: A worn seal
D: None of the above
E: Or as Click and Clack the car guys would say, "Hey you got a ghost in there so stay away.
Thanks for your help
Reply: Gas Leaking Out Of Unit
The correct response to the question is "A", A carburetor problem.
I like multiple choice!
It sounds like your carburetor float is stuck open. The float is located inside of the bowl on the carb. Remove the bowl and move the float up and down a few times to loosen it. Spray the float, especially around the hinge, with a generous amount of carb cleaner. That should solve the problem. It would be a good idea to replace your air filter as well. It is probably gas soaked. I would also change the oil. Sometimes the gas will make its way into the cylinder and down to the oil reservoir.
I hope I passed the quiz!
