Common for not starting unless trigger engaged as you are turning the pump as well as engine creating pressure,as for stalling pump has unloader valve which is probably in need of grease(use good silicone grease)this allows water to ciculate when trigger released.

    not sure wht type pump you have but most are located behind either adjustable screw or behind screw in cap on pump located close to pressure area.saw a small electric type which had to be stripped completely mainly due to compact size of pump.hope this helps

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.

My Karcher 530M runs ok until I release the trigger, then it will not start again unless I switch and allow the water to run through for about 15 secs before switching on again


Hi Cliff:
My experience is that the pump pressures prevent the engine from starting, so we hold the trigger while starting.
My brother has cut a wedge of wood that he uses to jam the trigger open to bypass the problem. It can get a bit wild if the wand is not secured when the unit is started..

Pressure washer stalls out when wand nozzle is released


Remove the hose and run the machine. If the machine works and the flow of water is ok. Start checking the hose for a restriction and trigger. Make sure this is correct before you start taking the pump to bits

New Troy-Bilt 3000 psi - Very Hard to Hot Start


When you run the unit and shut if off, release the pressure from the spray wand before trying to restart the engine. This built up pressure will cause it to be very hard to start as you have found out. If it does not start on the second pull release the pressure again. Another option is do do what I did on mine. I simply put a pull tie on the handle so I can pull the trigger back and use the pull tie to hold the trigger open. Make sure if you do this, that you remove the high pressure orifice from the end of the wand before attempting to start the engine. Otherwise the pressure will come on abruptly and could injure you or do property damage.

Starts but but shuts off after a few seconds


Try to start it with someone holding the trigger open on the spray wand. If it stays running then, but sounds like it's being overloaded and stalls when the trigger is released, it probably needs the unloader valve rebuilt or replaced. If it still does it, it's probably something in the carburetor of the engine.

My 1750 psi campbell hausfeld pressure washer will operate at first until I release the trigger on the wand. Then it won't restart. If I wait for a while it will run again. Sounds like the pressure switch.


Common with that washer...it has a wabble pump. Release the trigger, if by pass does not engage, stalls engine. You can however keep using it, all you have to do is keep trigger pressed, and when you are cranking engine, depress trigger with the free hand. Can be repaired, but the fix probably will cost more than a new pump.
