It is easy to check if your hose and quick connects are supplying enough water to the pump. Your pressure washer gallon per minuite requirements are printed on the machine and also on the pressure tips in GPM. Your post indicates 2.5 gpm but check your documentation of GPM. Next remove the tip from the wand and connect your hose with current quick connects to the machine. Start engine and direct the pressure wand into a bucket for exactly one minute. Measure the amount of water in the bucket, it should be very close to stated gallons. Do the same test with tip installed and compare measurement. If pump is starving for water you will not get proper amount of water in the bucket and the water hose will collapse. Two to four gallons of water per minute is not very demanding and should be delivered even with very small opening. You can even just direct the hose into the bucket for one minute and check how much water your hose is capable of delivering. I believe that you will find no problem with water delivery to pump. I would certainly enlighten Northern with your findings and question their evaluation. When you start using your pressure washer again try using it at lowest pressure to get the job done. Lowering the pressure to about 75% of max will increase the life of the pump and engine. Good luck with you pump

Why won't the hose connect to the washer?


The connection is made at the bottom of unit.
should be standard garden hose.
sometimes I find if I gently hold hose against connection point then rotate counterclockwise until I feel a click! then ( without lifting hose) rotate clockwise and hose should now be threaded onto power washer.

I have a Yellow Stone APW-150a pressure washer bought in 2005. The hose is cracked at the fitting that attaches to the washer. Can it be replaced or repaired?


Though I have never heard of Yellowstone appliances, I am pretty sure there is a way to get replacement parts from the company spare parts department or from other sources who sell these pressure washers. If not, try the Internet, or try the Speed shops where they sell these to people who pressure wash their cars/trucks. I am also sure there are other hoses not necessarily for the Yellowstone brand but fit perfectly well on them. Find out where they sell other brands and take your washer to them, ask them if they can sell you a hose with the right connectors to fit your washer. No salesperson can refuse to sell you a good bargain.

My 97 isuzu rodeo when push for washer fluid doesnt spray


If the pump is making noise when you press the washer-fluid button then it is probably a hose issue. Open the hood of your car and have someone press the button. If you can see where the fluid is spraying out, then you have found the disconnected hose. It should not have fallen too far away from where it is supposed to be connected, so it should not be too hard to reconnect it.
If your washer fluid pump is not making noise when you press the button, then check the pump. If there are no loose electrical connections, then the pump it probably dead. Replace the pump and you will be fine. If you notice a burned looking wire near the pump, then you should be able to replace the wire and be OK -- but this usually indicates that there is a bigger problem at hand (wires usually don't just burn out for no reason).
I know this one is going to sound silly ... but have you made sure the washer fluid level is full? If your tank is empty, it won't spray. Double check this before you spend any money on anything else -- sometimes the washer-fluid tank will crack and leak, so even if you fill it, it will be empty again by the time you go to use it again (it once took me a month to find out that this was the problem in one of my old cars ... ha ha ha ... I felt really silly)
Most likely it is just a hose. Most auto makers use a friction connection for these hoses since it won't kill anyone if it pops off. If you find that this IS the problem, I recommend using a zip-tie to secure the hose where it is supposed to be so you don't have to deal with the same problem repeatedly.

Infinity 1300a car amp won't turn off...


The possible area is definitely in the stanby switching circuit. A damage to the relay drive has made the power to be continuously on without the remote switch. You can have two solutions, one you can ignore the fault for the time being and connect a second relay fromt the system to trigger the relay and subsequently switch the amplifier main power. Or you must open the set and look in the remote switching area for a jammed relay, a faulty transistor drive or activation of the bias to the relay drive by a faulty component. Check this out with a good multimeter and you will solve the issue. I hope my advice helps. Good day
