Question about FAIP Garden
Has no pressure unless trigger is released then it will build up a little . i just replaced the unloader valve and got same result. i have the monifold off and there is nothing wrong with any of the seals and valves. looks like new inside . this washer has only 10 hours run time on it ,
Your water inlet may be stopped up. Whether this model only has a screened hose washer or a better filter, pay special attention to that. Be sure the pathway is free and clear.
Take each of poppet valves and while pushing (with a pencil or something) on the part that moves up and the spring pushes it back down - with magnification and lots of light, be sure there isn't a small piece of debris affecting one of those valves. Its easy to miss, so look very closely.
Next, remove the hose from the pump. We are by-passing the entire unit that includes pressure hose, trigger gun, lance, spray nozzle. If it seems to pump a lot of water out of the pump--then the problem is most likely the trigger gun is clogged or the pressure nozzle is clogged. Some trigger guns can be taken apart -- some, not so much. Same with nozzles.
I hope this helps you, Randell. If yes, please take a sec to rate me. Thanks!

common for not starting unless trigger engaged as you are turning the pump as well as engine creating pressure,as for stalling pump has unloader valve which is probably in need of grease(use good silicone grease)this allows water to ciculate when trigger released.

Take a small diameter wire and poke thru the discharge hole of the spray head to clean out.
Second time in 6 months that I had the same problem. The problem is alway in the spray head.

is not necessarily a cap, but could be a screw in plug, that should be close to the hose hook-up on the pump Inside there there should be a round ball and a spring that you can tighten or loosen to adjust the unloader and if it has been used ALOT, where the ball seats there could be grooves cut in there and you might need to get a valve kit to fix it

You should put 'locktite' on the male thread and screw it in all the way and lock it there. That is how it works ,the spring keeps the valve at the bottom closed during high pressure operation. When the gun is released the part with the o-ring is forced down resulting in the valve opening and then the pressure is by-passed.Those dont normally give trouble. Look for a blocked nozzle or a restriction somewhere in your high pressure hose.
