Campbell Hausfeld 1750 Pressure Washer Won't Start

This is an electric unit that has worked fine for me in the past, although only used on average once or twice per year for the past 2 years. Today, when I got it out to use it, it started briefly, for not even two seconds and went right back off. I checked the GFI plug in, tested and pushed the reset button. It never came back on. I noticed that the light on the GFI was out. I called Campbell Hausfeld and they were no help (other than to send me instructions to clean the pump with vinegar and vegetable oil) which is quite a tedious process and I don't think it will work because I cannot turn the unit on. Do you have any possible suggestions as to why the unit won't turn on?

    I have the exact same problem. Unit came on yesterday for about 10 minutes. I quit for a little bit, then it would not run at all.

Throw it away seems to be the only solution since no one has a clue in what there talking about, nothing froze always cleaned out system and still wont start, campbell hausfeld does not have a clue neither, they told me you got to check this one out, drop unit about a foot off the ground and yea i tried it about 8 times then almost threw it across the yard, oh well i hate being negative and love to fix whats broke but the hours spent i could be making money and just buy another, thank you

My electric Campbell hausfeld 1750 psi won,t always start when I pull the trigger .sometimes it will quit while running. the motor and pump seem to be free. it works good while it is running. CR


Hi , i'm not familiar with the machine so without model numbers it is hard to diagnose.
if it is a trapped pressure unloader valve, ie the motor turns off when you let go of the trigger , then it is possible for it to be a pressure switch causing problems. the pressure switch may turn it off immediately you let go of the trigger or it may have a delay stop on it, where it will turn it off after a predetermined time interval. it is quite common for springs to break or microswitches to fail in these switches.

For the Campbell Hausfeld 1800 PSI model (PW182500AV), the garden hose connects to the pump inlet on the lower back of the pressure washer. The high pressure hose connects to the high pressure outlet on the lower front of the pressure washer. Here is the operator's manual that will show both connections. http://www.mowersatjacks.com/images/campbell-hausfeld/manuals/pw1825.pdf

I have a Campbell Hausfeld RBPW1810 pressure washer, It has two detergent tanks. I cann't get either to work. I just purchased the unit in June if this year and this is the frist time I am useing the unit....


Sometimes thinning the solution will help, but in any case make sure the line from detergent tank to pump is sealed, otherwise it just sucks air. I use a small hose clamp at pump. let us know

C/H 1750 Washer will not start with water connected. Electric motor will start without water connected.


HI I would think that your pressure switch has stuck.
You will need to remove the covers etc and check the internal pressure switch that will be situated on the outlet of the pump. It maybe stuck and just want greasing etc or may need replaceing.
