Pressure washer has no pressure at all


check for blocked jet at the end of the wand
this is the same as letting the trigger go and the pressure relief regulator is not engaging the pump to produce pressure
water just circulates around the pump

Will not produce pressurized water


check the pressure regulator valve. It may be set wrong or stuck open. If that is not the problem then a valve may be stuck in the pump.

Burned through the hose, repairs?


With the high pressure that these units produce, I would recommend replacing the hose instead of repair just for a simple matter of safety.

Honda 5HP pressure washer. When you press handle to get pressured water, motor does not rev up to give you high pressure.


Most small pressure washers do not have an automatic throttle control to increase engine speed on demand (activated by trigger on wand). You must set the governor/throttle to about max. to get the rated pressure. A honda motor produces 5 hp when it is turning about 3600 rpm. To increase the life of the pump, use about 80 % of capacity of the pump and increase only for stubborn debris.

I have 5.5hp briggs&stratton pressure washer Simoniz S2350. Would you know the PSI for this item?


Every 5.5 HP pressure washer runs between 2,200 and 2,500 PSI with most set by the manufacturer at 2,400 PSI with 3,600 RPM of engine speed.

Due to the power required to produce more than 2,500 PSI a 5.5 HP engine would lose engine speed as it can not produce enough power for the higher PSI output. It is a matter of hydraulics vs input power.

Any gas pressure washer will produce lower pressure with lower engine RPM. Looking at S2350 as your model number yours may be set to 2,350 PSI by Simoniz.

Thanks for using FixYa.
