Hi

First priming hte engine(put some gas in the plug hole)and start the engine for few times until the engine runs constantly.If not there is a fuel delivery problem.Check the air and fuel filters,the fuel line,the muffler and screen inside.Disassembly the carb,check and very carefully clean it with compresed air.

SOURCE: pressure washer stalls out when wand nozzle is released

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.

SOURCE: Honda GCV160 5.5 on a pressure washer runs only intermittently

The problem is the plastic float in the carburetor, it's not adjustable and after sitting up with gas in it it distorts. Save yourself the trouble and buy a new one, you can get them online for $15-$20.

Surges on and off when not in use


You must have a slight leak from somewhere like the trigger or hose etc. Any slight leak on the out pressure side will cause the machine to surge. If you don,t have any leaks then it will be a worn n/r valve on your pump.

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.

Gas engine will not start without pulling trigger on wand to relieve pressure-engine dies when letting off trigger


I am afraid that is how they work even electric ones wont start unless you squeeze the trigger ,once they are running you should be ablr to release the trigger , and then squeeze it again whilst running . if yours dies when you release the trgger while motor is running -----good chance you are working at too high pressure. but to start you have to release all the internal pressure

I have a dewalt 3750 pressure washer, when I pull the trigger on the spray wand the engine dies


I worked at a tool rental center while attending college and learned many tips and tricks about Dewalt and other brand pressure sprayers. Your machine probably has a 13 hp honda and has max pressure of about 3500 to 3700 psi. Most of the problems that customers had were engine related due to severe working conditions including totally wet engine /plug, wet air filter, and or other problems that were easy to remedy. We would set the pressure regulator to minimum pressure and explained to the customer how to increase the pressure as necessary but only after the engine was completely warmed-up to running temp to prevent engine stall. Your machine has a throttle lever between the tank and carb that should be set to max if you are going to set pressure at or neer max range. Most cleaning jobs do not need much pressure. Use lowest pressure to get the job done. Your engine developes around 13hp at about 3600rpm. If you want to maximize the life of you sprayer, then use your machine at about 70% of capacity or about 2000 to 2500 range that will allow you to run your engine slower increasing lifespan. Your sprayer is likely rated at 4 gallons per minute so make sure that the tip is that capacity. The tip has the size stamped which would show the fan degree and flow in gpm. The wrong tip, say a 3.5 gpm will strain the engine to point of stop because the smaller tip increases pressure. Most engine stall is due to high pressure setting on new machines. Lower pressure when warming-up machine and use max pressure rarely when necessary to max life. Please email for other information/questions or simple tests to determine faulty parts, good luck.

When motor is at idle speed it surges


Try a simple test. It is ok to run the pump without water for a short time. Check idle speed without water in system to see if enginet surges. If it does not surge, then most likely the unloader/ pressure valve is causing the engine to surge when in the unloaded state. Life of unloader /pressure valve is shortened by letting system bypass for long periods of time. Enjoy
