Question about Garden
A lot of water squirts out around the nozzel instead of through the oopening in the nozzel.
Inside the nozzel, where the tip locks in, there is a groove for an o-ring. If that o-ring is missing, water will leak around the tip as you describe. Sometimes when the tip isn't fully seated in the nozzel and you pull the trigger, the tip goes flying out. The o-ring will fly out also. Most people find the tip but never see the o-ring. The o-ring is usually carried by any company or store that carries pressure washers.

SOURCE: no pressure from pressure washer
Do you plan on doing the repair yourself. I need more info, when you supply water to the pressure washer, pull the trigger to purge air from pump, and start the machine. Do you see water coming out from the bottom of the pump? Do you hear the pump working or is it quiet. If you hear a cycling pattern or hear the pump trying to push the water out but it isn't, then you may have a blockage inside the trigger or the spray tip. If the pump isnt building pressure then you may have a pump problem. A stuck check valve, cracked plunger, bad seal, or could be air bound.

This is a problem like the ones I explained. I will write again the explanation.
Dear Sir, What happened is that you have a control valve (Spill Valve)..that when pressure is created it will closes down and puts off electricity by hitting a micro switch. This happens if one leaves a lot of soap in the system or more often the machine is stored under pressure. Never store a power washer under pressure!! Now all one has to do is locate the spill valve ...lubricate or change with a new one. Always lubricate with silicon grease. Also never put on a power washer on without water being fed.
The spill valve is usually located where you see 2 wires coming out on the machine inside.
Well just a small reminder.....if you left the machine stored with pressure...most probably you have the spill valve jamed in the closed position, thus cutting electricity off. Regards, Fulltech
