20 Most Recent FAIP 1500 PSI Electric Power Washer Questions & Answers

Are you talking about the electric switch that shuts off the motor when the trigger is released?
If so, there is an arm that comes out of the high pressure side of the manifold and is connected to a spring loaded piston. The piston extends under high pressure (spray trigger released) and retracts when spraying. At the opposite end of the arm is an allen screw and locknut. The allen screw bears on the microswitch arm to control the electric motor. When properly adjusted, the motor should turn off when the trigger is released. If it doesn't, loosen the locknut and adjust the allen screw slightly outwards toward the switch. Pull the trigger a few times and verify the motor starts up and shuts down when you release it. Tighten locknut.
Hope that helps.

hi, more than likely a psc motor on a `small pressure washer.
The usual problems with the capacitors failing is down to a poor power supply, wether it be using a long extension lead of too small a size, or the power supply itself.
check voltage to machine while using it, a voltage drop will cause characteristics of motor to change, phase angles etc..
A refrigerator starting relay would not have the required amperage ratings for a pressure washer..
hope this helps , andy

The water supply may be blocked. Check filters, screens, or it may be air-locked.
