I have used my Husqvarna 3200 PSI 2.7 GPM Cold Water

Customer Question

I have used my Husqvarna 3200 PSI 2.7 GPM Cold Water Pressure Washer the past two days. It started right away. I cannot get it to start today. The engine is a Briggs and Stratton XR 950 Professional. I do not have an owner's manual and I'm not sure what to do.

Hi, my name is***** will be assisting you.

What happens when you pull the rope? Do you even get a sputter or fire like it wants to start?

Try removing the air filter and spraying a little carburetor cleaner or fuel directly into the throat of the carburetor and try to start it.

When I pull the rope, I do not get a sputter or fire like it wants to start. I removed the air cleaner and poured some gas directly into the throat of the carburetor. It still would not start.

Have you checked for spark at the plug? Are you getting spark?
