SOURCE: pressure washer stalls out when wand nozzle is released

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.

SOURCE: My pull cord to my pressure washer is hard to pull

take out the spark plug and trying pulling it , if its still tight then you may have seized your pump ) , put a rag over te spark plug hole as there may be fuel/oil mix in the cylinder , check the oil in the engine , check the oil in the pump ( look for milkey white , if found then your pump back seals have gone )

SOURCE: New Troy-Bilt 3000 psi - Very Hard to Hot Start

When you run the unit and shut if off, release the pressure from the spray wand before trying to restart the engine. This built up pressure will cause it to be very hard to start as you have found out. If it does not start on the second pull release the pressure again. Another option is do do what I did on mine. I simply put a pull tie on the handle so I can pull the trigger back and use the pull tie to hold the trigger open. Make sure if you do this, that you remove the high pressure orifice from the end of the wand before attempting to start the engine. Otherwise the pressure will come on abruptly and could injure you or do property damage.

B&E pressure washer w/ comet 3540 pump


Things to check:
1) is water coming out of the bottom of the pump or is the oil in the crankcase high level and milky yellow. If so your seals are bad.

2) Your check valves might not be seating properly. A couple of fouled check vavles will cause either no pressure or pulsing pressure. A good inlet water strainer keeps foreign matter out of valves. But valves do wear out and get build up that keeps them from working right.

3) Your unloader valve might be worn or fouled. Bad unloader would usually show as low pressure ( but more than hose pressure) or low volume out the trigger nozzle.

Valves are your most likely problem.

My GDX 2525 will not pressurize water. I have tried adjusting the calibration knob on to without success.


It could be that the linkage between the engine and pump is broken. Try the key on the drive shaft. This is a piece of metal that locks the pump shaft and the engine shaft. If it still pumps water the problem probably lies elsewhere.

I have a Comet 4040 and oil and water mix is bubbling out of the red cap on top of my pressure washer. Can anyone tell me what repair kit I might need to fix this problem?


Hi this could be the oil and pump seals worn. Also make sure that you don,t have the transit plug in or the pump cannot breath. It should have a air vented dipstick.

My Pressure washers runs for a few minutes and loses pressure then shuts off. What should i do?


Use a high quality carb cleaner poured directly into the gas tank and use a liberal (large) amount. Run the engine as long as you can with the choke on full or half full in order to get the carb cleaner into the carb. Then turn the engine off and let it sit for two or three days so that the carb cleaner can do its thing. While this is going on, why not do the below as well to improve water pressure.With the engine turned off, pour liquid TSP into the fresh water inlet until it comes out the other end at first just water that is already within the pump will come out but make sure you put enough TSP that it starts to come out the wand outlet. Then, let it sit for 48 hours and don't run it at all. This is how I fixed my no pressure problem tomsimmonds@yahoo.ca owner of Honda 5.5 with Comet pressure washer pump

Cannot start my Comet pressure washer...water runs thru fine. Had set choke to open (push to left) and start to left.


Hi: Some things to check: Is the gas old or contaminated with water. Change it if you are unsure. Are you getting a spark? To check this: BE CAREFUL. Remove the plug. Plug it back into its wire. Hold it WITH INSULATED PLIERS so the tip is close to the metal frame of the machine and have someone pull the starter cord. The plug should spark.

Committed Cardinal Sin No. 1, ran p/w w/o water. Ran for about 20 sec. and quit. Now pull start is seized. I could understand how the pump might be damaged, but why the motor?


It's not damaged...just hydraulically "locked"...my guess is the recirc valve is shot or worn enough to put is where it won't release. Just carefully start taking stuff off the pressure head...till the pressure bleeds off
Good Luck

Power washer problem no pump action


sounds like nozzle is blocked.small bits of grit jam nozzle unscrew and make sure its clear turn water on and pull trigger to see if gun trigger works,then refit nozzle check again for spray.if clear start up and try out.if no go then pump probably needs cleaning and relubing seals.
