I assum the gas and oil where ok?? did you check the pump oil?? if fluids are ok, have you tried to take the pressure off the pump by squeezing the pistol to allow water to flow and at the same time pulling the starter rope...sound as though you are fighting the compression of the water pump on the unit and in most cases this is the method to start you pressurwasher.

Please rate a Fix Ya!! Thanks I am jj505

No pressure on my husky power washer 1650


Basic Issues As an electric-powered washer, a circuit overload may cause your Husky 1600 to shut down or prevent it from starting. In this case, check your home's electrical service panel for a tripped breaker or a blown fuse -- the 1600 requires a dedicated circuit rated at a minimum of 15 amps. To prevent a blown fuse, avoid using other large devices on the same circuit as your washer. If you use an extension cord, it must be rated at 15 amps as well. Before moving on to more complex troubleshooting measures, check the gun safety trigger and release the lock if your 1600's trigger will not move. Water Woes Releasing air from the pump serves as a simple fix for low-pressure water output; remove the wand and allow the washer to run as you depress the gun's trigger until the water output normalizes. If your water output seems to lack detergent, ensure that the clear tube is securely connected to the detergent nozzle. Likewise, check the connected water supply and make sure the faucet is fully open and that there are no kinks in the hose to ensure optimal pressure. Using a shorter garden hose makes for stronger pressure, as well -- Husky recommends a hose with a maximum length of 50 feet for a city water supply. Clearing Clogs If your Husky 1600's pressure seems lacking or its water flow is obstructed, clean the nozzle by removing the wand from the gun, clearing the nozzle hole of obstructions with a stiff wire and flushing the nozzle with clean water. Similarly, clean the washer's inner water screen, located behind the garden hose connector, by removing the screen and flushing it with water. This also corrects low or irregular pressure and may remedy a unit that does not stop releasing water when the trigger is released. Model HD1600 features a chemical solution reservoir with a similar screen; clean this screen in the same fashion if you experience chemical intake issues. More to Consider If your power washer issues go beyond troubleshooting basics, contact Husky's customer service department at 800-381-0999. Husky recommends contacting customer service when your 1600 has problems with its pump, bypass valve, discharge valve or manifold assembly, for instance. Because this series of powerwashers was originally offered around 2001 through 2008, Husky's one-year limited warranty no longer covers the cost of replacement parts or repairs.

Looks like it might be a faulty/sticking pressure sensor/switch on the pressure side of the unit.

Husky 2600 pressure washer with honda gcv160 engine. engine won't run with choke off.


I bought mine at Home Depot, the pump failed after about 8 hours of use then Home Depot agreed to replace it now it failed again after aabout 10 hours of use. This is a piece of crap and Home Depot should be ashamed for selling this junk. I am sure they are in with Husky and making big dollars on a crappy product. My machine is like brand new just will not work. Now the carb has to be replaced only after less than 20 hours.

WHERE CAN I PURCHASE THE CAROCELLE COUNTERTOP DISH WASHER THAT OPERATES ON WATER PRESSURE


For your answer on where to purchase a Carocelle Brand dishwasher, Here it is. You might only find these in certain "junk shops" like a Saver's or Goodwill. You might find one on the Craigslist site. You will not be able to find any more new ones, since Carocelle Industries folded. MAYBE, and a big maybe ebay. Note before you buy... If you have a "water saver" faucet, this item won't perform well. Same goes for low water pressure... including low pressure on a top floor of an apartment building.

My Husky pressure washer 2600 psi powered by a gcv 160 Honda. Engine starts no pressure other then from water source and soap is not being dispensed


It sounds like the (RMW 2.2 G24) pump has gone out. Mine had this problem after about 6 hours of use. I was able to order a new pump for around $160.00, and then installed it myself. Go figure it was just out of warranty. I think my next pressure washer will be one with a professional pump as I was told the one on my husky is only rated for about 40 hours of use.

Husky 1650 PSI power washer hose got brittle and broke.


If the $$ that you Husky Dealer is asking is to tall, try a garage that make brake hoses. Take the hose with you and many times they can remove your nozzle and install it on a new piece of hose. MAKE SURE that they understand that this hose is for a pressure washer...DO NOT use just any hose...it MUST be a high pressure rated hose.
