Question about RTO 1800 PSI Pressure Washer

1 Answer

Motor runs fine but not pressure other that from garden hose.

I took my Huskey 1800 from the basement a bit ago and it operated fine. I turned it off to change locations and upon turning back on it had no pressure. There are no leaks anywhere--the motor runs and sounds fine. the hose is clear because water shoots out with the house pressure.My neighbor has the same unit and my hose and gun work fine with his unit. There seems to something wrong with the pump as the motor runs fine.Someone told me that it may be the manifold but I am not sure if that would cause the problem and I do not know how to test it.
Please advise

You have a unloader or bypass valve on the machine & it sounds like that is sticking.
take out and lubricate

What would cause your xr2600 pressure washer not to have any pressure out. Motor runs fine pump seems to pump could it be internal valves?


pressure out is controlled by the pressure regulator unit
this is in turn governed by the condition of the tip or nozzle
if it is blocked or partially blocked ,the regulator gets the same message as if you have released the trigger and so cuts pressure from the pump by allowing water to recirculate back through the pump
so check hoses for internal collapse ( disconnect and run garden hose water through the line )
check and clean nozzle (Most probably problem)
replace pressure regulator valve. ( not often)
internal valves--- possible but unlikely until the rest have been checked

For the Campbell Hausfeld 1800 PSI model (PW182500AV), the garden hose connects to the pump inlet on the lower back of the pressure washer. The high pressure hose connects to the high pressure outlet on the lower front of the pressure washer. Here is the operator's manual that will show both connections. http://www.mowersatjacks.com/images/campbell-hausfeld/manuals/pw1825.pdf

Just bought a dehumidifier in the ground level of a high ranch I am very frustrated because I dump the water every day I waas told to keep the humidity at 45- 50 but it keeps on going up This seems to be a...


It isn't necessary you run it 24 hours a day. You can set it to be on for 2 or 4 hour intervals and then it Turns OFF. However, I am a bit concerned that you have the humidity extraction level set a bit high for a basement application. 50% is more than most basements need to be. Lowering it to 35%, will remove more humidity and eventually will run for shorter periods of time. It takes several days of operation for the dehumidifier to get the humidity under control.

If you have a floor drain in your basement, you can use a hose to daring the water, rather than having to empty the bucket daily (which is not that unusual). See your Owner's Manual on how to connect a 48" length of garden hose to the dehumidifier.

I hope this helped you & thanks for choosing FixYa.

When using the sweep nozzle (yellow tip), the pressure starts and stops but the machine works fine when using the circluar nozzle(red)


usually when the power washer pressure stops the machine is running out of water. the sweep function uses a little more water than the round wash tip. Make sure there are no leaks in the supply hose and that the supply faucet is turned on all the way and has plenty of "flow". also make sure the water connection at the washer is not leaking. use a new rubber washer to make a good seal on the supply hose on both ends. if either end leaks or can **** air, just a little bit of air into the pressure washer will cause it to loose pressure.

Solutions won't feed from bottles on machine? I use the switch on this machine to use a deck cleaning solution and the bottles won't feed the solution into the water.


I have a SIMONIZ S2000 electric. I bought the unit about 8 weeks ago used it once. On the second use yesterday the unit didn't work as well, the pressure seemed only a bit better than hose pressure and soap did not dispense at any pressure. SO.... after much thought I turned the hose/tap pressure down so that I only got about 2-3 GPM instead of the typical 5-6GPM normally coming out of my hose....... it worked! Soap dispenses and spay is way better! It seems that if if the inlet hose pressure is high the pump doesn't work as well... go figure.

No pressure HOSE IS BIG ENOUGH,NO KINKS, FILTER IS CLEAN. TOOK THE PUMP APART AND CHECKED ALL THE CHECKS, THEY WERE ALL OK.WHAT ELSE CAN I LOOK FOR? THE PUMP IS A KARCHER-MODEL G 1800 LB Thanks, Art


Brother Art,

Try this trick; it always works for me. Assemble the garden hose to the washer, install the HP hose, turn on the water. Now, make sure that there is no air trapped in the garden hose. Manipulate so as to direct any air trapped in the line to the washer. Connect the gun and continue to allow water to "free flow" for several minutes. Now, work the trigger, allowing the unit to rise to "house pressure, and then pull the trigger, dropping the pressure suddenly. This displaces any air hidden in the system. Do this several times, and start the washer up. If this doesn't get you up to pressure, repeat the above on an abbreviated scale, and hold the trigger on the gun down while you start the washer. This should do it.
Regards, --W/D--

Pressure Washer quit running


I have owned four of those units. Every one of them did what you are experiencing or just wouldn't give me any pressure after only a few uses. The company was certainly no help. I gave up after four and bought a heavier gas model from Lowes. Hope this info helps.
