Customer Question

We have a Briggs & Stratton Power flow+ 3000-PSI 5-GPM Carb Compliant Water Gas Pressure Washer. It will not start. I have replaced the sparkplug and cleaned the air filter. Any idea what to do next.

Do you have spark if the plug is removed and grounded?

Expert:  Curtis B. replied 1 year ago.

If you have spark, put teaspoon of fuel into the spark plug hole, re-install the spark plug and see if it will fire for a few seconds,

Expert:  Curtis B. replied 1 year ago.

If it does, the carburetor is not letting fuel through.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I'll try that and let you know.
