No steam pressure

Leave the valve open until it starts slowly hissing, then shut off valve and wait for the pressure to build up.

My Oasis washer flooded the basement during a wash cycle? How do I fix this?

If the machine doesn't stop filling, it can be one of 2 problems. 1. the inlet valve has jammed open - water will continue to come thro when machine is switched off. 2. the pressure switch has failed. This is located at the top of the machine under the top cover and has a tube about 1/4 inch diameter attached to it, leading down to the drum. As water enters the drum, pressure builds up in this tube & operates the pressure switch turning off the inlet valve. Either the pressure switch is faulty or, more likely, the tube has a hole(maybe tiny) in it and is not allowing the pressure to build up. To test the switch, pull off the tube at the switch. Connect another similar piece of tubing to the switch about a foot long. Switch the machine to start filling. Blow down your new tube to the switch. The pressure you create should switch off the inlet valve while you keep the pressure up. If the water stops coming in, the switch is ok - suspect the tube. If the machine continues to fill, the switch is faulty.

My compressor runs and builds pressure but, with nothing touched all of a sudden does not produce the same amount of pressure as before, it will not run my printing machine. What should I check?

Does the compressor have enough CFM to run the printing machine. Will the compressor build up pressure and shut off if you close the discharge valve at the tank. Your printing machine may simply be using to much air. If the above items are not the case you may have a faulty check valve in the receiver tank or valves going bad in the LP or HP heads. The valves may also simply have carbon build up or dirt of some type not allowing the valves to seat properly. I would start at the check valve. One way to check the check valve is to see if you have air blowing from the bleed off line at the pressure switch all the time. Another way to check is loosen the fitting at the High Pressure head an see if you have air blowing continously. Caution do not remove the fitting at the head completely. If the check valve is bad you will have high pressure air blowing until the receiver tank is drained.

I have a gasoline pressure washer. i connect machine the right way. try to start but machine only runs when trigger is pressed. stop pressing trigger machine shuts off. the water is flowing through the...

Not knowing exactly what type of pressure washer you have, most are equipped with an "unloader valve" so the pressure bypasses. If this is malfunctioning, the pressure will build up and bog the engine down.

Frother builds up too much pressure and explodes off the machine

I had the same problem. All you need to do is take the steam nozzle apart and clean it. I tip can be cleand with a neadle. Just make sure you unblock the little side holes and make sure to thoroughly clean the little hole in the front. Over time the milk builds up in the nozzle, clogging up the "steam holes", so the preassure gets too big and the rubber attachments can't hold it any longer. Hope that helps.

Tooo much pressure

If you remove the top panel on the machine there is a pressure stat on the right side, with 2 wire connections going to it. That P.stat could be damaged and needs to be replaced, or the pipe to the P.stat is clogged and it cannot read the boiler pressure.
