Question about Garden
The plastic filter cap on the bottom of the water intake has blown-out. I replaced the plastic cap and it immediately blew-out again. Only thimg I can think of is the values(do not know which or where) are allowing back pressure enough to blow out the bottom of the plastic cup that holds the screen filter. Any Ideas???
Replace with a brass inlet strainer the threads on the housing is corroded and can no longer grip the cup firmly.duraview by general pump is best.

Sounds like the regulator is sticking or is airbound. loosen the water connection and then tighten it back. Could also be that the trigger gun is faulty or needs adjustment. Hope this helped

You most likely need to set your valve clearances. If it is hard to
pull over or the recoil snaps back after starting your valves need to
be set for sure. This may not be the entire problem but it is a good
start. Also change the spark plug, a bad plug will cause odd problems
and is too cheap not to eliminate as a source. In addition check your
fuel, pour a little out into a white container (I like spray paint can
caps for this) and look at the color. If it is yellow to orange it is
bad. You can pour it into you car, the car electronic sensors will
compinsate for it quality but a small engine can't. Use a NGK BP6ES or
10mm open end wrench
14mm open end wrench
1 long shaft screw driver or rod
1 spark plug socket and ratchet
Remove the spark plug and the valve cover. Pull the recoil over slowly until the intake valve opens (intake is closes to the carb and it will go down when it opens). Now put your long screwdrive down the spark plug hole. Slow pull the engine over until the screwdriver handle is at it highest point, this is top dead center. It may take a few attempts. Now check your valve clearance between the rockers and the top of the valve. The intake should be .006 and the exhaust .008, both can be +/- .001. To adjust: hold the large nut with the 14mm then loosen the small one with the 10mm. Lefty loosey. Now turn your large nut until you get the correct setting and then tighten the small one the lock it in. It may take a few attempts and alway reverify your setting after you lock it down. Once done, find top dead center again and reverify. Now your valves are set.

I lucked out when I managed to locate a local rent it centre who sells and services Homelite equipment. I bought my pressure washer at Home Depot and when I approached staff there regarding my problem, they had no idea if there even was a local dealer who sold/serviced Homelite stuff. telephone enquiries finally led to the rental place who ordered the part for me. I was getting concerned!

You need to start the unit and let it run for few minutes to get worm, make sure the water is fully open and the unit is fully cleaned. Push on the trigger on and off for few times not letting the unit shutdown, then start increasing the fuel mixture ¼ turn and push on the trigger again and see…this could be that the unit need service or the governor springs getting week if you got one on your unit…let me know how that work for you and please do not forget to rate my service so we can improve on it with your help. God bless
