Question about Electric Garden
In general all pressure washers have a control valve. This is sometimes refered to as the Spill Valve. When the trigger is pulled, the spill valve is in normal position. When the trigger is released, the spill valve compresses to let water circulate from its bottom part. If when the trigger is pulled and the bottom part of the spill valve does not close, then water keeps on circulating and hence no pressure. In this case change the spill valve with a new one. Also there could be a fault in the sucktion valves. If the sucktion vaves do not close, also water keeps on circulating. One also can examine the delivery valves. If these are not closing, then water is being sucked while delivering. Hence no pressure. Another cause but very rare, is that the swash plate that is pushing the pistons got loose. The electric motor will be turning, but the pistons stay in the same position.
I mentioned many causes, but usualy it is the spill valve. If with a new spill valve, there is still no pressure....then you must tackle the sucktion and then the delivery valves.
I wish to add that I assume that you have the correct lance and correct nozzel size. A worn out nozzel, will result in low prssure too.
