Alternating or Pulsating pressure on Simoniz S1600

Hi there,

I have Simoniz S1600 which start to acting up. Its pressure is pulsating, It is there for 10 seconds and gone for another 10 seconds and it will be back again if you keep pressing the wand.

Any idea? it is the switch, relay, sensor or the pump?

Please and Thank you,
Geninq

SOURCE: One day it was working fine the next day

It could be the thermal switch in the motor but that cannot be reset. If you used it with an extension cord, this has blown the thermal reset in the motor. You now have a blue boar anchor. If you haven't used an extension cord then it is probably the bypass valve switch. When you use your washer, then let the trigger shut off, this valve shuts off the motor. When you open the machine, you can tell where this valve is because it somehow has a small switch mechanism attached to it.This valve needs to be pulled out and greased with a good waterproof grease. If you can tell me the serial number, or e-mail it to me at firehead@rogers.com, I may be able to get you a schematic.

SOURCE: Karcher 360M pressure washer pulsating problem when idleing

Hello,


unfortunately these little units have this problem commonly, 9 times out of 10 it will be the plastic head or the plastic valve block on the unit will be cracked and leaking slightly... it builds up pressure then leaks out and tries to build up the pressure again and this just reoccurs over and over...

you can get this repaired but is normally about half the cost of a new unit, if the pressure is still okay i would probably recommend just keep using it until it proper dies...

If you do get this fixed, we have studied into this and believe the main cause of heads cracking is warm water say if your inlet hose is in the sun for a period of time this can cause the water to become quite hot or if the unit sits and water trapped inside the head assy freezes can also cause this. Hope this helps Kind Regards Brad

SOURCE: Pulsating when idle

The motor doesn't pulsate when you are spraying and pulsattes when not spraying is normal otherwise the pressure will just keep building and burn out the pump. However, if you are not using the sprayer right away then the unit should be shut off until your ready to start again.
I hope the answer is helpful, please rate if the answer has helped in any way. Good Luck and have a great weekend.

My K5.55 has pressure loss and judders while running. Vibrations are transmitted to the discharge hose. I need to adjust the wand constantly to get enough pressure.


Change oil, spark plug and clean/replace air filter. Do u have a choke adjustment, most have automatic govenors nowadays. Clean water hose intake screen.

You did not mention rotors but that could be the source of the grinding. The pulsating probably is traceable to your ABS and traction control syatems

Landa pressure washer LT 4035-4000 psi. Why is it losing pressure and continually pulsating?


If the pump is pulsating rapidly most likely valves are leaking or debris under valve keeping one or more from closing. If the pump pulsates slowly, comes up to pressure then low pressure then repeats, problem is pressure regulator /bypass. Or you could have a combination of both. Try lowering the pressure to lowest setting to see if slow pulsation stops. As parts age within pump and debris hinder operation you can no longer operate at full pressure. To make the pump last, use highest pressure as needed and everyday work using only 60 to 75 percent of capacity.

Pulsating water and poor hot water pressure


Based on your description it sounds like the pressure balancing valve could be gunked up with particulate from your well or just worn out. If your water is not filtered to that shower I would lean more towards particulate. Try to remove the cartridge and take it to a plumbing parts store for a match-up since Delta makes several cartridges and you want to get it right the first time.

S1600 Simoniz gun - I took it apart and I have a spring left - where does it go? I need a schematic or something.


There are no schematics available because the manufacturer doesn't sell parts for the gun. The spring usually goes right into the end of the hose, then the little bullet like valve follows. Did you know you can buy a new gun for about $22.00 Canadian?
