Customer Question

Wayne - I fixed the float sticking in the pressure washer as you suggested last year. Unfortunately, it hasn't started since. I replaced the spark plug and cleaned the carburetor but no luck. It's not even trying to turn over. Any ideas?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Wayne - Sorry for the late response, I just got around to trying this. So when I put gas in the spark plug hole it does start but only for about 5 seconds then cuts off. It won't restart after that unless I add more gas to hole. then it will start again for 5 secs.
