I have a new power washer with a Briggs and Stratton 7.75 engine. It has run once and now it refuses to start. It will start and run for 2 seconds and then dies before it actually reaches full rpm. Gas is good, it has run, it will run, but seems as if there is a kill switch at full rpm. What am I missing?
Make: Briggs and Stratton
Model: SAE 1940
Removed the airfilter and made sure it was getting air, some gas in carb, it starts and runs for a couple of seconds, never reaching full rpm, then as if a kill switch it dies
Hello I'm PopDaddy and I want to assist you in your DIY project! Let's figure out your challenge today...There should be a model number on that briggs, look for a six digit number followed by a dash then a 4 digit number...
I only see 2 numbers One is BBSXS.1901VB and 11 0503 62 10137
Those aren't the numbers that i am looking for, however, let me ask you this, is there a "low oil" shutdown device on your unit? If there is a low oil engine shut off sensor, check the oil level and ensure that it is at the specified level, and if able disconnect the wire going to the low oil sensor on the side of the engine. If it starts and runs, plug it back in and see if the engine dies, If it does you have a faulty sensor or the oil level is not yet right.PopDaddy41094.0034272801
