You may have a strainer in the wand simply unscrew the wand and look for the clogged strainer it protects the nozzle from getting any dirt

SOURCE: Coleman Pressure Washer Problem

your pressure relief valve is stuck open. i know that may sound too simple but it depends on if you use a cleaner with the water when your using it , not flushing with clean water after use can cause the housing of the aluminum housing of the relief valve to corrode. the valve can't move back and forth as it should because the o ring won't slide.

SOURCE: builds up to much pressure in hose and stalls engine

Sounds like the unloader is not working. try replacing it and see if that helps.

SOURCE: need instruction book for coleman powermate clean 1500

The hose connection I believe is for hooking a hose up and running it into a bottle of cleaner. The cleaner is mixed with the water when it is sprayed, The knob on the bottom adjusts the strenght of the solution. Most washers have the same setup.

Make sure your fluid level in the pump is changed and at the right level.

SOURCE: Once the trigger is released it won't starting spraying again.

I have the same problem. This is the responce for Karcher......

The unloader valve may be sticking, or is dirty. It probably needs to be cleaned and may need to be replaced, it is inexpensive. It gets a lot of use, but extends the life of the pump. The function of the unloader is to allow the machine to run in a bypass mode while the trigger of the gun is closed. First, a lack of high pressure can be caused by: 1. Insufficient water feeding to the unit, so check that the water is turned on all the way and that there are no kinks in the hose. 2. The inlet filter may be clogged. (it will need to be removed and thoroughly cleaned). 3. An internal water leak. 4.Also, low pressure can be caused by worn spray tips. If you have checked the first three with no resolution, the problem is internal and could be as simple as a sticking unloader valve. If you are mechanically inclined, you can clean this valve yourself and greasing the o-rings (use lithium based grease), or take it to a local service center. You do not need to take the pump apar
t. The unloader valve is located under the cover, and is secured with 2 bolts. (Use needle nose pliers to remove the valve) For those units with pressure and volume controls, the unloader is located under the pressure and volume control knobs themselves. Do not take any other bolts off or you will open the pump and lose the pump's oil.

Note: Lithium based grease will prevent future failure of the unloader valve.

Also, check websites such as fixya.com for tips and how-to info particularly on cleaning the unloader valve. Be sure to use lithium grease if you reassemble it.
I am going to check the manuel to see where it's at

The gun part of the wond has a hold. will I need to replace the hold gun section? If so is their a replacement?


Hi, if the gun section is just leaking, then you can replace the washers inside; otherwise, its a replacement, which is not cheap unfortunately; but most guns should fit your machine.

When the spry trigger is pressed the engine boggs down and stops. Is there a relief valve stuck maybe.


This issue is caused by defective unloader or debris trapped in spray nozzle or faulty gun. Easy to check. Check system with-out spray nozzle. The engine should not labor at all when you depress trigger without nozzle. If it labors/ dies faulty gun, if no labor, install new or clean nozzle (check for correct gpm for machine) and retest. If ok, you are done, if engine labors or dies, reduce pressure by turning pressure knob as required. If reducing pressure has no effect, most likely faulty unloader. Good luck

Does not give a continous high pressure flow cuts in and out


that is sure signal of insufficient water supply!

try easy solution first:
make sure that your mains is fully open, that tap on whihc hose is hook up is fully open and hose is of "decent" diameter to allow sufficient flow.

if above solution do not work then you need to make another, more difficult arrangement:
prepare 20litres pressure tank with inlet connected to mains and outlet by short hose to power washer, fill it with water from mains, keep it under mains pressure and use karcher power washer normaly. this will solve water supply problem. twenty litres will last about 2min, because it is re-filled, under standard pressure therefore it will last about 3min...

third possibility is to stop washing...

if you find my advice helpfull, please do not hesitate to left the comment and vote for me, thanx!

I have a Coleman 2750 power washer that just idels when you pull the handle. Why is it not reving up with pressure?


Possibly has leaking seals or there is a blockage in the gun or hose. remove the hose first and see if it is putting out enough water.

Need new gun and connection to gun


The DuraBuilt and Coleman pressure washers have a gun that tends to leak through the plastic clyinder wall that holds the plunger that moves with the trigger. You won't see the holes, but if you remove the upper half of the housing, hold the plastic tubes in place with one hand and turn on the water, not the motor, you will see water shooting through the wall.

Amazon sells an exact replacement gun and hose. FAIP PowerWasher Replacement Gun and Hose #80012. Mine does not leak at all and was $29 shipped.

Powermate pressure washer Model PW0872400


pressure washers has this pressure switches where in as you press on the trigger, the washer works and if you release it, the pressure would build up high and it would trip this switch to turn off the motor or deflect the water to the by pass hose ( if the motor is not stopping) then as you press again the trigger, water should come out of the gun again but would not,

i have encountered the problem is in the pressure switch, even the pressure went down, sometimes it wont close the contact then the motor wont run ,

if the motor is continously running, then the trigger switch is the problem, the pressure excerted on the switch is so high that even if you press it , it won't open up to release the water.

what i can suggest is to tie the trigger in the gun so that it is always pressed and then just unplug the unit if you want to stop using it. it is an inconvenience but it will work.

or, open the gun and see if you can figure out why pressing the trigger would not open the switch.

another option is you can lower the pressure of the washer if it has an adjustable pessure controller. by lowering the pressure might open the switch when ever you press the trigger.

i hopw i was able to fix...

good luck,
