You can try to unlock it by turning the machine one once you have loosened the nut holding it in place.
Use a towel to capture it once the machine its turned on as the water pressure inside will force it to pop out.. Usually its easier with 2 people doing it.
Then you need grease to make it nice and slippery so you dont have a repeat problem

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: i have a 2300 psi

If you no longer have High Pressure coming out while machine is running, it's a pump issue.

I have a 3000 psi campbell hausfeld gas pressure washer and it has no pressue how can i fix it


Small stream sounds like your pump is not working at all - you are getting house pressure only. First check the intake fitting where you attach the hose for debris that may be clogging the water flow. Same for the pressure hose and quick connect fittings. Remove the tip from the wand and see how much flow you get. If it's still only a small amount, with the motor running, you probably have a bad pump. This can be caused by bad seals inside the pump, or by running the motor without maintaining water supply to the pump, which can melt the seals or even seize the pump if allowed for too long. Repairing the pump is typically more work and expense than replacing it, assuming you can locate a replacement pump.

Hookup


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

Starts but but shuts off after a few seconds


Try to start it with someone holding the trigger open on the spray wand. If it stays running then, but sounds like it's being overloaded and stalls when the trigger is released, it probably needs the unloader valve rebuilt or replaced. If it still does it, it's probably something in the carburetor of the engine.

My 1750 psi campbell hausfeld pressure washer will operate at first until I release the trigger on the wand. Then it won't restart. If I wait for a while it will run again. Sounds like the pressure switch.


Common with that washer...it has a wabble pump. Release the trigger, if by pass does not engage, stalls engine. You can however keep using it, all you have to do is keep trigger pressed, and when you are cranking engine, depress trigger with the free hand. Can be repaired, but the fix probably will cost more than a new pump.

Gas engine will not start without pulling trigger on wand to relieve pressure-engine dies when letting off trigger


I am afraid that is how they work even electric ones wont start unless you squeeze the trigger ,once they are running you should be ablr to release the trigger , and then squeeze it again whilst running . if yours dies when you release the trgger while motor is running -----good chance you are working at too high pressure. but to start you have to release all the internal pressure

Hope this helps. I have the same problem. It's not the switch but the mechanism that slides inside the switch, which activates the switch to go on and off. I fnally found it so hopefully they have the part in stock. It's not a clogged wand trust me I have torn it completley apart and found out it is the mechanism in the switch is plastic and breaks.
