Pressure washer will not shut off when water trigger on wand is released


Sharon, you first should make sure you have no connection/leaks any where. There is a pressure switch inside the pump, which controls when the motor turns on and off. Leaks in pressure causes the pressure switch to activate the motor. Leaks are the biggest contributor to a cycling machine. If no leaks, the pressure switch is defective. Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

Well, Anthony, considering as how I have no idea of what brand, make, model or color your vac is, I can't make much of a guess as to why it doesn't work. We'd need more info if you want to log back on at a later date, such as brand, model, maybe even a picture of the unit so we could see just where your problem might be.

Motor pulsates


Hi there, it's Jack at Dyson.
If your DC44 Animal makes a pulsating noise then shuts off, it's very likely there is a blockage in the floor tool, wand or bin inlet. It's easy to check for this - just follow the steps in our Support guide:

http://www.dyson.co.uk/support/dc44/dc44-animal/my-machine-is-not-working/machine-not-sucking-picking-up-as-well-as-usual-dc44/no-resolved-redirect-to-check-the-wand/check-wand


It's also a good idea to wash the filter as shown in the video below - this should be done at least once a month in normal use. Use cold water without detergent, and allow at least 12 hours for the filter to dry completely before replacing it.
I'm confident that following these steps shown will resolve the issue, but please get in touch if you'd like further assistance - you can reach us on 0800 298 0298 (UK), or 1-866-693-9766 (US)

Best wishes,

The motorized wand attachment keeps shutting down after 10 to 15 seconds after pushing the red reset button. I've thoroughly cleaned dirt/debris from around motor. Do I need a new reset switch? Thanks,...


either the reset is bad or the motor is drawing too many amps and tripping the reset. Do you have an amp meter? Check the amps being pulled by the wand attatchment against the load recommended by the manufature, this is usually located on a plate somewhere either on the wand or the canister.

Shuts off when high pressure wand is attached


Hi Brian. Welcome to FixYa I am Kelly. This sounds as if the bypass / unloader valve is stuck in place and the pump id dead heading causing the unit to shut off. (There is most likely some corrosion in the unloader / bypassy valve assy / housing. What you can try is pouring at least 3 oz of oil into the water inlet assy and briefly.... like VERY briefly switch the unit on then back off. Then let it sit over night. The next day connect everything for normal use then turn the unit on again briefly. Use a bucket to PURGE the oil that you put through the system by squeezing the wand Power SW Off until the oil purges. Then switch the unit on and rapidly trip the trigger at 0.5 sec intervals or less. If it trips off wait 5 mins and try it again. Do the rapidly tripping the trigger on the wand routine for about 20 seconds. Your forcing the bypass unloader valve to cycle trying to clear out any debris / corrosion.
This works often and well. There are exceptions. Hopefully it will work for you.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Kelly

Sounds like you have a clog, either in the hose, or the inlet down at the bottom. When there is a clog, the red light will come on and may also shut down to protect the motor.
