Motor starts compressor for pressure starts, water supply right, nozzle out for full pressure. No more pressure then with water hose. I allowed time to build still no pressure. Not sure about white chemical hose proper hook up though.

I switch the pressure washer on motor starts pressure builds up motor stops. OK pull the trigger on the lance the moter starts sounds different water pressure low. Release trigger motor still runs.


It isnt very clear your explanation of the problem but what type washer do you have first? It sounds like you have a bad unloader or need a new variable nozzle tip. Can you explain in more clear detail. Thanks

The motor keeps surging


If there's a lot of sediment in your water supply, there's a chance that sediment has gummed up the pressure switches. I'm assuming it has a full power switch and high power switch. It runs on full power until a pressure switch is satisfied, and runs on low power to slowly build the pressure back up, at which a second switch is satisfied from the pressure and turns the motor off. These things are not easy to work on, and are made of metal probably too fragile to try any chemicals. You should probably contact the manufacturer.

Doesnt build pressure up ,it just runs right without pressure does the compressor require being oiled?


HELLO THERE:
Here is some troubleshooting tips for you and a web link for you ok this should help
best regards michael
Troubleshooting Your Pressure Washer troubleshooting_pressurewasher.jpg General points to check if a problem occurs
  • Are the engine and fuel switches in the “ON” position?
  • When troubleshooting, always check oil and gas levels.
  • The oil for the pump is a 30W non-detergent mineral oil. Do Not fill over halfway on the sight glass.
  • Is the water tap open?
  • Check the choke and throttle levers.
  • Is the correct nozzle in the lance? Is the nozzle plugged?
  • Only the black nozzle is for soaping at low pressure.
  • Is the water-inlet screen clogged?
  • Hold the gun trigger open while pull starting the engine.
  • Check for O-rings in the lance and quick couplers.
  • Has the unit tipped over? Close the fuel switch and keep pull starting the engine until the excess fuel is burnt up, then open the fuel valve and try again. Some engines will need to be primed every time they are started.
  • Make sure the engine is turned off after each use. It should not be left running without use for longer than 2 minutes as the pump can overheat.
Are you experiencing low pressure?
  • Is there an air leak?
  • Dirty pump valves?
  • Check for worn pump valves or broken valve springs.
  • Check for a worn out spray nozzle.
  • Check for leaks in your plumping or hoses.
  • Troubleshoot your nozzle, is it turned to the highest pressure setting?
  • Is the unloader improperly set?
  • Are the engine RPMs too low?
  • Check if your water supply is sufficient.
  • Check if your engine is getting enough power.
Trouble with high vibrations
  • Dirty pump valves?
  • Do you have a sufficient water supply?
  • Is there are in your water supply?
  • Is the inlet water filter clogged?
  • Clogged or damaged spray nozzle?
  • Make sure it has the correct fuel
  • Has the choke been left on after the engine has warmed up?
If the engine won’t start
  • When troubleshooting the engine, check if it's low on fuel or oil?
  • Worn or dirty spark plugs?
  • Is the switch in the off position?
  • Is the fuel valve in the off position?
  • Is the engine flooded from over choking?
  • When cold starting, was the engine properly choked?
If the starter is hard to pull
  • Low oil in the crankcase or pump assembly.
  • Oil or fuel in cylinders (hydro locked).
  • Pressure built up in the system, relieve this by squeezing the trigger.

Motor cuts on 2-3 seconds and then off and repeats this pattern


There are several possible causes of this problem. The three simplest to check are: 1. water supply is not sufficient, 2. water inlet strainer is clogged, 3. nozzle in the spray lance is partially blocked. After those, the most likely problems are internal and will probably require professional attention.

Motor starts and pump is not working. No water is flowing at all..what do i need to do?


Water is supposed to flow slightly through the pump without it running so disassemble the wand and cut on water supply, see if water comes out of the wand on-off handle. The motor does not have to be running. Got water flowing? YES - clean out the wand filter or nozzle hole. A partially clogged filter will prevent hi pressure activation.
NO? disassemble pump and clean out chamber paths.

Also - A pressure pump is not suppose to be running and not used for over ten minutes. The pump can overheat from lack of water passing through and damage the pump seals. A clogged wand is the same as not using it while you try to figger out why it doesn't have high pressure. I found my clogged filter and stopped up nozzle but haven't gotten my real high pressure back yet. Sears doesn't sell the valve seal kit but someone does.

Pressure washer has no pressure


Try and back flush the washer..Take spay nozzle off washer and back flush with hose...If any kind of sand or deposits get into the Pump it will hold pressure valve open not letting it build pressure.after back flushing hook back up washer and before you put spar nozzle back on or start washer turn water on and make sure all air is out of washer..hook spray nozzle back up and hold it open with washer still off.when you see that there is no more air coming out of washer start it and you should have pressure.Hope this helps you and have a great day!!
