SOURCE: Engine runs. No water thru hose. Pressure

Sounds like bad seals. But first take the hose off and see if water comes out the outlet without the hose there.

Water pump runs constantly but no water pressure or water comes out of hose.


Lots of possibilities. Inlet filter might be clogged. I once had a lizard crawl into a water feed line, totally blocked the feed. Check valves might be stuck closed. Discharge hose might be plugged. Pump might be trashed ( if it is a vertical engine it is probably a throw away pump) Nozzle might be plugged.
Disconnect the hose at the discharge and turn on the water supply. It should have a stream of water even without the motor running. That will check the inlet filter, feed pipe and check valves.

Bad coolant w/ leaks from many places, overheated and shut off, heater doesnt blow heat anymore


After the engine has reached normal operating temperature, feel both heater hoses going into the firewall. Are both hot? If both are hot, it's probably the door or doors in the heater case not operating from the selector knob on the dash. If only one hose is hot, the coolant is not circulating through the heater core. Look for a water valve in the hoses that is shut. If no valve, crack open the cold line to see if you can start circulation through the core. If neither hose is hot, pull off the inlet to the heater core (it may come from the cylinder head area) and run the engine and check stream flow. It won't spurt out like a garden hose, it should flow out in a smooth even stream, maybe just enough pressure to push a steady stream. If no flow comes out, coolant is low, or there is a circulation problem in the engine, like a kinked hose, a weak water pump...

Will not produce pressurized water


check the pressure regulator valve. It may be set wrong or stuck open. If that is not the problem then a valve may be stuck in the pump.

When i switch on the power of my karcher K2.38 power washer, the motor runs but there does not appear to be any increase in pressure, which means that it is ineffective when it comes to cleaning the patio/...


Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly/
First off, remove the water supply hose from the power washer and locate the in line filter. Most of them are a plastic screen stuffed into the plumbing just behind the hose washer. Others have a short stand off and the filter / screen may be where the stand off attaches to the pressure washer. Others units have in in line sump that usually has a blue or red cap that you remove to clean the sump. Find the filtering mechanism(s) and clean it.
After doing this... attach the water hose loose to the power washer and turn on the water supply hose. Wait for all of the air to purge from the water supply hose. Then tighten the water supply hose. After that... Squeeze the wand trigger until all the air purges out of the high pressure hose and you get a solid stream of water with the unit off. Once you get a solid stream of water with the unit off... power the unit up and see if the high pressure hose becomes rigid / charges with high pressure. Next.... cycle the wand trigger 1 second on... and then wait for the hose to charge again. Do this multiple times. What your doing is forcing the un-loader / relief valve to stroke in the pump. Until the un-loader valve stokes un-restricted; you will have pressure problems. Next after the hose is fully charged... cycle the wand trigger very rapidly until you get high pressure each time you cycle the wand trigger. At this point your done and can proceed with patio cleaning.

Should this NOT resolve your problem.... get as much water out if it as you possibly can and pour a few ounces of engine oil into the water inlet. (Easier said than done... but you have to get oil into the pump and then let it sit over night. once you have oil in the pump pull the recoil 2 times with the ignition off just to force oil through the pump)
The next day you go through the same routine as stated above. This brings about 80% of the stubborn ones back to life again. Should it still be fussy after doing all of the above... you will have to replace the unload-er valve. If you removed the un-loader valve for any reason... you must clean out the pump housing and lubricate it and the un-loader valve with white grease (<-Available at any automotive parts source) BEFORE reinserting either the old one or a replacement un-loader valve. If you attempt to use the old one with lubrication.. make sure to remove any debris from the springs and wipe the seals clean with a PAPER towel before lubrication.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

looks that you have problems with your water valve. make sure the fill hoses screens are clean and valve screen too. check water pressure, you need 20psi or more. if all checks good then replace water valve.

Pressure releif valve leaking


Hot water pressure relief valves serve two functions. The first is to remove high-pressure water from the hot water tank. The second function is to act as a high temperature valve to remove water that exceeds a predetermined point for the valve. Both of these relief settings are preset at the valve factory. Many pressure relief valves will come with a metal tag that identifies these release points. If you're attempting to remove the hot water heater pressure relief valve, pay careful attention to ensure that you replace with the correct valve.

Your hot water heater has a pressure relief valve safety mechanism. When pressure inside the water tank exceeds certain limitations, the valve opens up to allow the pressure to be released. A faulty pressure relief valve will not release excess pressure, which could cause extensive damage to your home. You should test the hot water heater pressure relief valve once every six months to ensure proper operation. If the pressure relief valve fails the test, replace the valve with a new one immediately

Locate the pressure relief valve on your hot water heater. The pressure relief valve has a lever handle on top with a drain pipe attached to it. The pressure relief valve is most often on the side of the water tank toward the top. Newer models of hot water heaters have the pressure relief valve on top of the water tank.

  • Inspect the area around the pressure relief valve for signs of leaking water. If there is leaking water near the relief valve connection, replace the relief valve. If no leaking is evident, proceed with testing the pressure valve.

  • 3

    Examine the area below the pressure relief valve drain pipe. Most water heater closets either have a drain in the floor below the pipe or the pipe is inserted into another pipe to direct the water out of the home. If the end of your drain pipe is not in another pipe or there is no drain in the floor, place a bucket under the drain pipe to catch water when you test the pressure relief valve.

  • 4

    Pull the lever handle on the top of the pressure relief valve up with your fingers. A working lever will lift up without difficulty.You should begin to hear water going through the drain pipe. Slowly release the lever to shut off the pressure relief valve. The pressure relief valve is good. If you did not hear water running through the drain pipe, lower the lever on the pressure relief valve and replace the valve. If the lever is difficult to raise, do not force the lever. Replace the pressure relief valve.


  • Now with all that said if you have a closed loop water supply system and you have a pressure vessal/expantion tank it may have gone bad and is making the TP valve leak. you can call your water provider to see if you have closed loop system.

    Drain pipe from hot water heater leaking on the outside of home ? cause


    Water may be coming from the temperature- pressure (TP) relief valve, which releases water when it senses excess pressure. Excess pressure can be caused by the temperature being set too high, by the main water supply pressure to your house being too strong, or by special valves that reduce water pressure in your water supply system not allowing for hot water expansion in the tank. Or, the TP relief valve itself may be faulty. 20090617111024_hot-water-heater-leaks.gifIf you find the leak is coming from your TP relief valve, consult your owner’s manual for instructions on what to do, or contact an appliance repairperson immediately—if too much pressure builds up, your tank could explode. So, adjust temperature to about 120 deg F , if problem persists, change TP valve.

    When I release the trigger it "idles" fine, but when I re-engage


    I have seen this problem alot and it can normally be rectified by clean out your unloader/bypass valve the orings on this valve get damaged as jerr said by leaving hoses and trigger pressurised, the easiest way to test if it is a faulty unloader valve is to do as you say it does and when it is on its weak stream turn your nozzle to detergent or low pressure mode then back to high pressure it should kick the pump back in...

    If you do not have low pressure(chemical applicator) on your nozzle you may be able to remove the front half of your lance to achive the same result...

    Kind Regards

    Hi sstanl, Is your pump output or flow normal back to pool? if there is no water flowing through system you will get no expulsion of air or pressure reading on gauge. If pump is working then you probably have a clogged air release valve and maybe a clogged gauge. Just remove air relief assembly from filter top, remove gauge and clear any obstructions in parts. You should easily be able to blow air thru assy with gauge removed. Teflon tape the components and snug them back in their places. restart your pump and voila! air will come out when prime is established.
