SOURCE: pressure washer not working

sketchy info here....

Remove the hose and gun to see if water is flowing....
if it is that means there is no blockage in the hose or gun. When its connected if it runs at the same rate as without the hose and you have set it into pressure clean mode, then the pressure valve and seal have collapsed. Estimated repair cost is $200 and about $100 of that is labor. It is not a DIY unless you know your way around and have the right tools. Having it repaired professionally gives you 3 months warranty as well. Do it yourself and you could end up losing some of the small screws and other nylon components that tend to drop out and get lost when you open it up!

SOURCE: Troy Bilt power washer 020293- Oil in air filter

that is incorrect. if the oil has been over filled, it will saturate the filter element by way of the crankcase breather tube. it is the small plastic pipe that connects to the bottom of the filter housing. check the oil level. these machines take very little oil. approx 20 oz. if overfilled, it will leak out filter.

SOURCE: troy-bilt 2200 psi pressure washer

I have a Troybilt Model 2200 PSI Pressure Washer in which I have used only 2 times in the past 2 1/2 years. Went to use it this past weekend and the pump in not working. Water shoots out of the side. I bought this brand and model as I thought Troybilt was suppose to be so good. Went back to where it was purchased and had no success but to say I could buy another pump or take it in to be repaired. I believe that this power washer should be replaced at no charge. 2 uses does not constitute a few hundreds of dollars.
Have you to heard anything concerning pump problems on this particular model? Thanks for any advice. .

SOURCE: Need to know where oil

I have the same model...... it should be just underneath the unit.... it will look like a square head recessed. I used the ratchet set extension and it fit just right. I literally had to tilt the darn thing upside down to find it. Then once it was loosen a bit, I put the machine upright on the wheels again, and slip a plastic pan underneath as I finished unscrewing the oil plug, Out came the black goo.

All outflow stops when I start the motor on my Troy-bilt 2600 pressure washer. What's up?


Could also be crack/leak in HP pump. If it were left in cold weather without antifreeze, I'd check there first. Part + labor might warrant new washer if more than a couple years old.
Sorry.
