Open Question

Lost heavy water pressure. Is housing that conducts pressure supposed to have oil of some kind? It is empty.

Stopped putting out heavy pressure and then started pressure again and then stopped. The housing on the front of engine that conducts pressure and water seems to take some kind of liquid. It is empty. Should it be? It is spinning when you look inside the capped area.

It sounds like an air lock. Try this: With the machine off, connect the hose to the washer and let it run for several minutes to get all of the air out of the hose, and to purge any air out of the pump. Shut off the water, and connect the high pressure hose, but not the gun. Let the water run for several minutes. stretch out the HP hose and make sure that the air is displaced. Shut off the water, connect the gun, and purge as before. Now crank it washer up. As quickly as safe to do so, open the trigger to keep water moving through the washer. It should come up on pressure very quickly. It is better during normal operation to keep water moving through the system. When I am through for a while, I shut down my washer, but leave the trigger depressed to allow the pump to stay full of water, and cool. This prevents further problems when I restart it.
Hope this was useful.

Regards --W/D--

SOURCE: Pressure Washer Pump and Engine Stops Suddenly

The pump might be binding against the motor, causing the pump to overheat and temporarilly "seize up" and shut the engine off.
After cooling down for a brief period (5~10 mins) the engine can usually be re-started, but the overheating problem will keep coming back.

This happens when the pump either wasn't seated against the engine properly during it's initial instalation, or the pump housing wasn't machined properly and the PTO shaft is trying to drive the pump at a slight angle = excessive friction = overheating.

Try this:
1) Loosen the bolts that mount the pump to the engine just enough so that the pump can be wiggled slightly.
2) With the engine power switch in the "OFF" position, slowly pull the recoil starter rope so that the engine / pump completes about two revolutions. This helps to align the pump surface with the engine.
3) Lightly snug the pump mounting bolts in a criss-cross pattern, then slowly pull the recoil starter rope again to ensure that the pump isn't binding.
4) Finish tightening the pump mounting bolts in the criss-cross pattern (approx. 21 foot pounds torque).

The entire process should take you roughly about 10 mins from start to finish.

If this doesn't remedy your problem, then try running the engine for 20 mins with the pump COMPLETELY removed so as to isolate the components.

A leaking gun will kill all the pressure. You may need to repair or replace the gun

We put a heavy blanket in the washer and the load stopped suddenly with a washer full of water. It wouldn't spin or empty and made a weak sound but nothing worked. We had to manually empty the water....

Usually that means the drive belt is loose and slipping. You should be able to tighten or replace the belt.
To test the belt you have to remove the washer back.

The sediment filter on my culligan water softener is tight. i already broke a plastic filter wrench on it. do you turn it clockwise or counterclockwise to loosen it? i have a new wrench but this is...

Turn the incoming water off. Go to nearest faucet, run water to relieve pressure. Turn of water at outlet of filter, If filter has a pressure relief valve (red button on top) hold it down while taking housing off. Apply silicone lube to housing threads on re-install. Only tighten by hand, DO NOT use filter wrench to put housing back on.

What kind of oil do I put in my Comet AXD2524G-T pump?

If the Comet Pressure Pump Oil is some kind of a
Synthetic Oil that supposed to be extra effecient than
an ordinary oil, then that will cost extra. If that is ordinary multi grade engine oil (SAE 20 - 40), then, you
can buy over the counter. Most synthetic oil have additive that give extra longer life to all moving parts.

Ford expedition a/c warm i already put gas, but i cant find the other pipe for oil

Ummm, there's no other pipe, and don't unscrew the plug in the side of the compressor

You're supposed to empty (Vacuum) out the system, let the vacuum **** oil in then recharge, if you didn't, look for gas cans with oil already in the can and turn the can upside when putting more gas in

Pro's have little pressurized cans of just oil with a smidge of gas just to give it pressure, once again add upside down

Im assuming you've got a real gage set?

Have a MAC 3818 chain saw it just stopped oiling.

Same for me. Take chain off and ensure clean oil hole and channel. Clean hole if needed with fine wire or heavy nylon line. otherwise I think problem is interior, either oiler itself or oiler oil tube came loose. Since I have no excess oil coming out I suppose oiler iself is bad.Still working on it.

No pressure from pressure washer

The "dump valve" inside the units pump,not engine is more than likly malfunctioning or bad. Try checking pump oil,buy 30 w pump oil and fill to line also ckeck black cone type turn knob marked +/- and turn to + for increase in pressure,also check water supply hose and if restricted ,unrestrict water line.
