Question about Garden
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?

it just the presure building back up ,it will last years doing this,i would not worrie as replacing the presure pump will only be a temp fix and it will do it again ,most washes do this after a year or lots of use.

you have a restriction in the nozzle end of the lance. clean with paper clip.
if not you have some dirt in the pump head valves which need cleaning

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 email@example.com, I may be able to get you a schematic.

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

Testimonial: "Thanks very much brado83. The cycling interval has now increased, so I am going to try to fix this myself.You have confirmed my part suspicions.Cheers"
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.
