I have a alto pressure washer i have problem with the trigger

I've had a alto washer pressure for two years now and obviously use it only once a year, so far i have had to replace the trigger twice as after a short use the trigger leaks,the water comes out of the trigger rather than the nozzle. I have tried fixing this myself but the trigger works only for a short time before the rpoblem starts again.Anyone out there that have the same problem.Any help on this would be very much appreciate or can anyone recommend a good quality pressure washer for domestic use, i use mine for cleaning my patio and drive.
thanks for your help

GO TOO WAL MART AND SEE IF THEY HAVE A COMPARABLE TRIGGER AND NOZZLE ASSY. REPLACE THE THING WITH SOMETHING DIFFERENT. WHAT YOU HAVE IS JUNK AND WON'T NEVER WORK FOR LONG.

HOW DO I DRAIN THE WATER FROM MY HP WASHER FOR WINTER


What I've always done is just disconnect the water hose then start the washer and pull the trigger till no more water comes out. You don't want to run it very long at all after there's no more water though, you can quickly overheat the pump if it is ran without a water supply for too long. I've been doing this for the past 3 years with one of my washers and haven't had any problems with the pump.

Husky pressure washer leaks by the trigger on the gun and I have replaced a broken o-ring and the new o-ring blows out of the groove. It is the same size o-ring as far as I can tell unless it could be...


Not sure about the o-ring problem but mine once leaked from the trigger, I found out I'd stored it without making sure it was empty of water, this had frozen & cracked something inside.

Kew Alto Force X-TRA cold water supply pressure sensor problem


Have the same p-washer (5-6 years old) and the same problem. Opened it and the pressure switch is the crook. A plastic pin has an inner and an outer spring on it (two consentric springs). The smaller inner spring is completely rusted away so the switch no longer operates correctly. Obviously the spring was of a too low quality. The service office say a new switch cost around 400NOK (50 euros) - so the washer is too expensive to mend. But I will try to get it working without the inner spring. Doubt if I succed. So will have to dump the washer.

Alto Kew pressure washer stopped working!


Hi Steve, In 3 years of repairing pressure washers I've only ever seen one of these, and am having a hard time remembering much about it, except that it was really awkward to work on! Strictly speaking, many small pressure washer repairs are uneconomical, because the labour time involved costs almost as much as the machine is worth. However, a "motor won't go" problem does narrow things down a lot. To state the obvious, we're looking at an electrical problem. The challenge is to find the cause! Did the motor stop while you were using it, or did it fail to start when you got it out of storage? If you are in the UK you should first check the plug-top fuse and the full length of the flex for any damage. If you have any kind of low-voltage electrical testing device, you can test for continuity between the live and neutral pins of the plug (with the machine switched on you should have continuity). If you have no continuity (and the fuse is OK) there may be a problem with the switch on the machine. Unfortunately, unless you are a really keen DIY person, there's not much you can do by way of self-help. A repair centre may be able to help you, but beware of costs spiraling beyond the cost of a replacement machine. I hope this will be helpful - if you can give more details I'll help further if I can. Good luck!
