Question about Garden
My electric Coleman Clean Machine worked perfectly the last time I used it. now the trigger on the "gun" wont work. I can feel the pressure in the hose but something is blocking it right at the trigger. HELP! thanks
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.

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.

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
