SOURCE: pump on my pressure washer will not pressuerize

there is a loader and unloader valve on your pump bolted to it. if it frozen in the open position it will never build press. most of the time this is caused by leaving cleaning solutions in system after use and let set up for a long period. it causes the aluminum case to corrode.;you will have to dissassemble and clean if not to bad. if not your going to have to replace.

SOURCE: Electric Karcher pressure washer surging when turned on

Dear firenutt681,
One simple thing you can do, is to check for leaks. Check if hose at machine is leaking. Check gun if it is leaking. You can also check if water still comes out of lance nozzel. These leaks however so small, will cause the machine to surge.
Another reason is due to a faulty SPILL VALVE. This spill valve( often called CONTROL VALVE) will contract when the gun is closed. When it contracts under the enclosed pressure it will switch off the machine by means of a Micro Switch. Now if this Spill valve is faulty it will loose its compression under pressure and puts on the micro switch again. This can be seen once in a while or more frequent, as in your case. I sometimes do service Spill Valves, but mostly I replace them with a new one. I do not know the model number of your machine, but normally you have to open the cover and you should spot the spill valve on the head. Most probably you see a thick wire or a cap containing the micro swith. If you find the micro switch, you have found the spill valve. Sometimes it is a bit hard to pull out the spill valve. Myself, in various Karcher models I remove the spill valve by trying to feed water and put on a bit the machine. In this way the spill valve will be spitted out.
Another reason which makes your machine surge, is leakage from from the detergent inlet.
If you do not see no leakages at all....then for sure it is the SPILL VALVE.
If you cannot do this job yourself or you do not find spare parts...you can continue using the machine as it is...but before closing the gun...switch off the electricity. I only recommend this in an emergency. You do this so that you do not leave the machine surging. This surge will for sure damage the electric motor and the capacitor (assuming it is single phase).
Regards,
Fulltech.

Where do i get a 2200 psi pump?


It depends on what you want the pump for, but at 2200 psi, I presume you are looking for something like a pressure washer pump.
Harbor Freight sells a 1600 or 2500 psi pressure washer

http://www.harborfreight.com/2500-psi-3-gpm-65-hp-212cc-pressure-washer-69734.html

If you need just the pump, here are a couple of websites to check out:

Pressure Washer Direct
http://www.pressurewashersdirect.com/power/pressure-washer-pumps.html

Northern Tool
http://www.northerntool.com/shop/tools/category_pressure-washer-accessories+pressure-washer-pumps?utm_source=Natural&utm_medium=Covario&utm_campaign=Pressure

And you can check on Amazon or eBay and see if someone is selling one there.


Good luck!

I do like to know if this washer is good enough for my business as a used car dealer? Briggs & Stratton Murray 020456 2400 PSI 20 GPM 190cc Briggs Stratton


We power washed houses for years with a 2400psi machine. The machine weighed about 90 pounds. 1 strong man could pick up the weight, but usually it took 2 men to unload it from the trailer.

A small machine can advertise 2400 psi ... but that is for 3 square inches at a time. The heavier machine shoots a 10" or wider swath of 2400psi.

We ran our machine twice a week for years. We had a honda engine. I'm sure the briggs engine is good. I wouldn't buy a used machine... unless the price was low and it started on first pull. Electric starter on your power washer might be a repair-waiting-to-happen because it is constantly exposed to water and dirt.
