Pressure Washer wont start


Got my Aunts pressure washer and it wont start. I changed the spark plug and put gas in it. I cant get it to start. Anyone have any suggestions?

Plug gap right? Take plug back out and plug it in, put it next to sparkplug hole and try to start. See if you are getting any fire by looking at the sparkplug as you pull.

is it trying to turn over?

carborator could be fouled, i am sure it has a fuel filter somewhere in line, air filter could be dirter and not letting air in

Spray carburetor cleaner in the carburetor and repeat after 30 seconds. Then crank it up. Guarantee it will start.

Check the oil level. May have a low oil sensor and will not start without sufficient oil.

She probably used enthanol gasoline in it. Clean the carberator out and it should be good to go. Try the carberator cleaner like the previous poster stated. It should work.

Somebody just became a victim of an elaborate frame job.

I'm guessing your aunt will next be demanding repayment for the pressure washer that you "broke."

the nylon washer that acts as the needle and seat in the carb is probably clogged, squirt starting fluid and see if it cranks and runs for a few secs if so you have fuel delivery issues.

Make sure you have the water turned on and are holding the trigger on. If not, the back pressure will not let it start. As others have said, could very well be carburetor issues.

Had the same problem with mine. Turns out the wiper fluid was a quart low.
