SOURCE: Coleman 1600 pressure washer

Remove spray tip and clean with a paper clip, Check pump oil resevior and add 10w 30 pump oil if needed, also look for turn knob ,usually black with -+[plus /minus symbols ] and turn towards plus for extra pressure. May need new pistol/wand assembly and make sure hose is clear by seeing if water will run through hose freely and generously.

Thanks Kf1013 and please vote me a Fix Ya!!!

SOURCE: pressure washer leaks

I had a Karcher water sprayer that did the same thing , the repair man told me it could be repaired IF he could get parts , guess what, he COULDNT get parts so i had to buy another one , the answer to your question is yes they can be fixed provided you take it somewhere that can get parts . hope this helps

ps i could have fixed it myself with the right part, its not a hard job to strip it and rebuild it

SOURCE: I have a craftsman 4.5hp quantum xte pressure

the pressure relief valve(bypass) is most likely stuck or clogged. take the relief valve off and check for broken or jammed parts..there should be a bypass hose that goes around the pressure valve

SOURCE: I have the Coleman powermate 2400 PSI pressure

Sounds like the valve in the handle is sticking closed. May have a broken spring, or maybe a part is stuck..
I say take it apart, and the answer will present itself.. Play with it with nozzle out too... Maybe something is stuck after storing so long and will loosen up.. Fingers crossed

Is the craftsman gas powered 2700 psi pressure washer to strong to wash cars and trucks?


yes -- it will remove any loose paint then keep going to take all the paint off
if used around the mechanical bits ,it has the pressure to blow in gaskets and force water into places that water would not normally get to

Engine runs fine. But it quits when I pull the trigger on the wand to start washing


Does this behavior change if the engine is warm and on minimum choke? Do you get any water spray before the engine quits? Carburetor could be dirty or float stuck. Try putting dose of carburetor cleaner through engine and cycle choke lever and engine speed lever back and forth while engine is running after it has warmed up without running water spray. See owners manual.

Is the pump seal bad when doesn't spray /pump well?


The sign of bad seals are water leaking out of the bottom of the pump. The high pressure seals get bad enough the low pressure oil seals will fail as well and water will get into the crankcase.
Weak or fluctuating pressure is a sign of a problem with your check valves or seal problems with your unloader valve.

Hi. I think the problem may be called either vapor lock or cavitation, or it could be called something else, but the solution is to take the wand apart in the center and let the trapped water escape, then putting it back together before re-engaging the lever.

Craftsman pressure washer constantly fluctuates and then stops


sounds like fuel problem. Either water\trash at bottom of tank, or most likely, carb needs to be disassembled and bowl and jets sprayed out w\carb cleaner.my money is on the latter.

Craftsman Pressure washer will not spray


your not missing anything, check the pump, they tend to go bad over time and may need replacing. The pump provides the pressure as well as the suction for the whole process, pulling water from the hose or tank and pushing it forcefully through the pressure washer line. If the motor is running and you have the water going through the line and to the pump, and no water is coming out, my guess would be the pump.
