SOURCE: I have an old kew pressure washer and when I pull

Dear dennis_partr,
In general all pressure washers have a control valve. This is sometimes refered to as the Spill Valve. When the trigger is pulled, the spill valve is in normal position. When the trigger is released, the spill valve compresses to let water circulate from its bottom part. If when the trigger is pulled and the bottom part of the spill valve does not close, then water keeps on circulating and hence no pressure. In this case change the spill valve with a new one. Also there could be a fault in the sucktion valves. If the sucktion vaves do not close, also water keeps on circulating. One also can examine the delivery valves. If these are not closing, then water is being sucked while delivering. Hence no pressure. Another cause but very rare, is that the swash plate that is pushing the pistons got loose. The electric motor will be turning, but the pistons stay in the same position.
I mentioned many causes, but usualy it is the spill valve. If with a new spill valve, there is still no pressure....then you must tackle the sucktion and then the delivery valves.
I wish to add that I assume that you have the correct lance and correct nozzel size. A worn out nozzel, will result in low prssure too.
Regards,
Fulltech.

SOURCE: Alto Kew pressure washer stopped working!

Hi Steve, In 3 years of repairing pressure washers I've only ever seen one of these, and am having a hard time remembering much about it, except that it was really awkward to work on! Strictly speaking, many small pressure washer repairs are uneconomical, because the labour time involved costs almost as much as the machine is worth. However, a "motor won't go" problem does narrow things down a lot. To state the obvious, we're looking at an electrical problem. The challenge is to find the cause! Did the motor stop while you were using it, or did it fail to start when you got it out of storage? If you are in the UK you should first check the plug-top fuse and the full length of the flex for any damage. If you have any kind of low-voltage electrical testing device, you can test for continuity between the live and neutral pins of the plug (with the machine switched on you should have continuity). If you have no continuity (and the fuse is OK) there may be a problem with the switch on the machine. Unfortunately, unless you are a really keen DIY person, there's not much you can do by way of self-help. A repair centre may be able to help you, but beware of costs spiraling beyond the cost of a replacement machine. I hope this will be helpful - if you can give more details I'll help further if I can. Good luck!

Pressure washer runs for 15 minutes then shut itself off. Overheating? I have to let it cool for 30 minutes before it can be used again, may be for 10 minutes before shutting down again. What can b


Not enough water VOLUME and pressure to supply the pump with a steady flow of water. Water is cavatating (adding air to the water) and the piston is heating up and jambing. Try using a larger size hose diameter and a shorter hose to supply the pump.

Must wait 30-40 mins to restart engine


Check your manual to see if it call for premium or regular. Premium has less energy per gallon and is designed for higher compression engines. What makes it "premium" is more anti-knock compounds - not better quality or performance. Sounds like a vapor lock problem that resolves as the engine cools. Regular gas may help with that.

Kew Alto Force X-TRA cold water supply pressure sensor problem


Have the same p-washer (5-6 years old) and the same problem. Opened it and the pressure switch is the crook. A plastic pin has an inner and an outer spring on it (two consentric springs). The smaller inner spring is completely rusted away so the switch no longer operates correctly. Obviously the spring was of a too low quality. The service office say a new switch cost around 400NOK (50 euros) - so the washer is too expensive to mend. But I will try to get it working without the inner spring. Doubt if I succed. So will have to dump the washer.

ALTO FORCE KEW COLD WATER POWER PRESSURE MACHINE STOPPED


Hi FRANK,
The answer of "Firehead" is correct. You have a start/stop valve with springs (springs = maybe broken by the rust). Kew sells a kit to repair. If you want i'll send a diagram to you.
