Try priming the pump first. Connect the water to the pump, turn the water on full blast, without turning the washer switch ON, pull the handle valve full OPEN. If water comes out, allow it to run to remove any air lock. When a steady stream appears, turn the pump switch on and see if pressure is present. If no pressure is found your inner pump is probably seized, seek repairs. If pressure pulsates, piston is worn or there is grit in the internals. Never add washing soda, grit, or corrosive chemicals before the pump to aid in cleaning, they will wear out the piston and score the sleeve.

Low water pressure from wand


The pressure in a watering wand extension to a garden hose is related to the water pressure from the hose itself.

The point of a watering wand is to provide a gentle and widespread flow of water. If you are looking for a powerful stream, then a different type of attachment is required.

Check to make sure that there is no leaking at the faucet, or at any connecting point. Leaks will lower water pressure at the end point.
Check to be sure the wand itself is free of dirts and clogs. If the wand is dirty or blocked, it will affect the pressure.
If there are several hoses hooked together, the water pressure is more likely to be low at the last point, the wand itself.
When the water pressure drops as a result of another use, like a shower, dishwasher, another hose faucet, then the water pressure will drop in the wand.

It starts turns on but water will not come out of nossel???


Many of these devices have strainers on the input (garden hose connection) of the pump. Remove the hose and check and clear debris from strainer. Reconnect hose and turn on supply water. Do NOT start engine / motor. Pop the nozzle from the end of the wand and squeeze water trigger. Hose pressure water (or less) should flow from the wand. Of not, youll have to see if water is leaving the pump by inserting the nozzle (or something that will if it) into the hose connector. If water still does not flow - there is an issue with the pump.

Engine working fine, but water not coming out


Couple of things, is the water supply good? if that's a yes, then check to see if there is a way to engage / disengage the pump, some models offer that, if engaged and good water supply, then it has to be your pump

Pressure washer won't deliver pressurized water.


sounds like you have a blockage maybe in your water hose ,ideally your water hose should be around 25 feet..or you may have an o ring in the gun where the tip goes.. is broken..that will affect your pressure..check also filter where water hose connects to the pump make sure thats clear

When garden hose is connected to the pressure washer no water comes out of the wand, engine is off.


Dear radcongirl,
Try removing the high pressure hose from the machine. Then connect the water hose and see if water comes out of the outlet.( you can also try this by putting on the machine for a few seconds). If water comes out of the outlet, then you have a problem in the high pressure hose or the wand and trigger. Check also the lance and nozzel for blockage.
I do not know what kind or model of machine you have, but most machines the water always comes out of the outlet when water is fed to the inlet. In bigger machines this cannot happen because they have a reserve tank.
Regards,
Fulltech.

Had the Northstar 3000 psi Pressure Washer for 2 months and it started leaking oil from the pump during use. Took it to Northern and they are replacing the pump under warranty but said it was likely...


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
