Power washer does not work

I have a Sears 1350 psi power washer. It is probably 10 years old but rarely used. My neighbor borrowed it, it worked for 10 minutes when he brought it back, but now does not come on. Recently I hooked up the water, plugged in the power cord, turned it on and then pulled the trigger. It started to spray, for about 2 seconds and then just went to a trickle coming out of the wand. Even with the trigger pulled, the motor will not start up.

Any ideas?

You are probably missing the washer or O-ring. Loosen and separate then check. It may also be a broken O-ring.

Sears 2550 psi power washer does not have any water flow with the motor running, but has a low flow from the wand when the motor is off.


If this unit has set for that long has you have rust inthe end of the nozzle. take it of or undo the wane and soak it in CLR this will take the rust out. GOOD LUCK....

When the 1700 psi electrical model is plugged in it trips a circuit breaker. Did not do that before.


Greenworks 1700 psi - Pressure Washer Problem and Solution:

Problems:
1. The main problem is the water outlet connector between the pump and the pressure hose. It's made of plastic. So water ran to the motor, switch and capacitor.
2. The 2 connectors to the capacitor may be rusted by now. So it build high current when plug-in and pressing the power-on button. Caused the power breaker to trip.
3. The motor is stuck caused the power breaker to trip too.

"These were the problems I encountered."

Solutions:
1. Disassemble the top cover by removing 10 pcs Philip screws on the left and right side at the bottom. Note: you need a 1 foot long Philip screw driver to do this job. Next, removed 4 hex screws at the middle.

2. Check the capacitor: Mine, was pushed out from the cover and the 2 connectors were rusted. Just in case, replaced the 2 connector instead of salvaging them. Pile the 2 connectors of the big capacitor. Note: This big capacitor is lethal, that it can harm/shock you if it is charge: (230Vac), make sure is completely discharge, by checking the DC voltage from Digital multimeter. To discharge place a light bulb as load between the 2 connectors. Check and measure the capacitance or use an ESR meter to make sure the capacitor is in working condition.

3. check the motor: Try to spin the propeller/small blade by hand. If it doesn't move or spin do this: Remove the black plastic cover and used allen / hex driver. If it doesn't move /spin try this: tap the shaft (where the hex located) with the hammer softly, then spin it. If it doesn't move tap again with little harder until the motor spin using your hand rotation.

4. The main problem is the water outlet connector (model no.:34117365) causing all these problems. It was made of plastic. Don't try to glue or repair it. I tried JB weld and didn't work. Imagine 1700psi coming out of this connector. Use the Sears replacement part no. 33101365 - a solid metal. use for craftsman pressure washer. It's the perfect replacement. Cost $8.52 and about $19.00 with shipping.

5. Assemble and check out other outlet(s) for leakage. If found one, the outlet connecting to the soap line. I used plastic tie.

This pressure washer belongs to my neighbor. Asked if I can fix it for I fixed their 3 computers long time ago. It was a challenge for me, because I didn't have experience in fixing pressure washer before. But it everything works now. Good luck.

My Honda 2600 psi power washer will not pull to start. It was running great then I allowed the neighbor to borrow it. He ran the washer till it was out of gas and proceeded to refuel and at this point it...


You should be fine to take the recoil off, there shouldn't be anything that shoots out at you. You might want to check the oil level on the engine, many of the Honda engines won't start unless there is enough oil in them. If your oil level is fine, check to make sure that your motor is getting spark.
