SOURCE: I was using the pressure washer and it stopped

This problem, where the unit continually switches on and off when the handgun is closed, is quite common. Unfortunately it has at least six different possible causes, only two of which are easily checked. 
The first thing you can do is look for leaks.  Even the slightest leak will cause this pulsing because the unit gets up to pressure, switches off, loses pressure, switches back on again, comes back up to pressure, switches off... and so on.  This repeated switching is not good for the motor and should not be allowed to continue for longer than necessary to observe what's happening.
So... 1. Does the handgun shut off completely, or does it drip? If it drips, it may simply be because a seal has failed. The handgun can be dismantled, checked, and any defective parts replaced; be sure to lubricate O-rings with silicone grease when reassembling. As a last resort, the whole gun may need to be replaced.
2. Are there any visible leaks at the high-pressure hose screw connections?  If so, most likely an O-ring needs replacing - again lubricate the new one well with silicone grease.
3. If there are no visible leaks, either from the gun or from the connections, all other possible causes are internal within the cylinder head or control head of the pump. New parts will be needed and this normally calls for a professional repair, although it's not beyond the scope of a truly competent amateur.
I hope this helps. Any further questions, just ask! Please remember to rate this response.

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.

The turbo wand and nozzle connection on my Pressure washer Model 580.752070 How to restore seal between Wand and nozzle? Please point me in the right direction to resolve this problem


the seal is normally a "O" ring that is available from a good hardware shop or bearing supply shop
basically the same set up as your garden hose "O" ring but with a pressure wand there is a thread nut to hold the bits together.
If it is not that then the threaded section of the connection in the wand or hose mat be loose or broken at the thread

Where does the detergent bottle go


It goes onto the wand itself. With the Pressure Washer off: If you have the wand unattached from the hose it works easier. Then separate the WAND into two pieces at the big joint in the center. Insert the bottle into the joint on the opposite end of the section that will be attached to the hose, (once you have the wand in two pieces you will see the same types of connections that are on the bottle.) then attach the other end of the wand to the bottle. Now reattach the wand to the hose.

I HAVE ELECTRIC POWER PRESSURE WASHER AND THE PROBLEM IS THAT THE PRESSURE IS NOT ENOUGH TO CLEAN MY PATIO


Hi. Is the problem a drop in pressure after maybe letting off of the trigger the first time? If so, you may be experiencing vapor lock or cavitation. Try taking apart the wand and letting the trapped water escape, then put it back together and try it again.

As soon as I turn the water on, it comes out of the gun and high pressure turbo wand even with the machine off. I used it yesterday with no problems. It does this without even pressing the trigger. ...


Hello,
This part should be available from the manufacture, have you check their website. It is normal when you turn the water on for a small string of water to come out the gun when you press the trigger even when the engine is not running.
Thanks

I can't get the nozzle to lock in the pressure washer. The part doesn't slip back over the ball bearings. What am I doing wrong?


More than likely you aren't doing anything wrong, try putting some grease on the o-ring inside of the quick connect socket and push the nozzle and wand against the ground and slide the brass ring down. If this still doesn't work I would recommend replacing the quick connect socket with a new one.

Motor cycles on and off when trigger not depressed


Simple fix...... There is an O ring on the end of the pressure hose that seals it to the pistol grip that the various nozzle wands fit into. The O ring is either cracked, which may not be obvious with a cursory inspection, or a small piece of it may be missing. The O rings harden over time and crack and then start to fall apart. Just fixed mine in 30 seconds with a free O ring from the hardware store. Just make sure it is of the correct diameter and material thickness and everything will go fine. The O ring should appear minutely larger than the brass stem is sits on.

Where can I purchase oil rings that go into the spray wand of a McCulloch FHH18A electric power washer.


I assume you mean the rubber O rings inside the wand. I had to replace mine as well. I had to visit several plumbing supply stores to find one that fit. I ended up taking the end of the wand with me so I could make sure the O ring fit. The ring you are after is a number 5, but you need to make sure it is thick enough to make a good seal.
