SOURCE: honda pressure washer cuts out when lance trigger released.

You most likely need to set your valve clearances. If it is hard to pull over or the recoil snaps back after starting your valves need to be set for sure. This may not be the entire problem but it is a good start. Also change the spark plug, a bad plug will cause odd problems and is too cheap not to eliminate as a source. In addition check your fuel, pour a little out into a white container (I like spray paint can caps for this) and look at the color. If it is yellow to orange it is bad. You can pour it into you car, the car electronic sensors will compinsate for it quality but a small engine can't. Use a NGK BP6ES or BPR6ES plug.
You need:
Feeler gages
10mm open end wrench
14mm open end wrench
1 long shaft screw driver or rod
1 spark plug socket and ratchet

Remove the spark plug and the valve cover. Pull the recoil over slowly until the intake valve opens (intake is closes to the carb and it will go down when it opens). Now put your long screwdrive down the spark plug hole. Slow pull the engine over until the screwdriver handle is at it highest point, this is top dead center. It may take a few attempts. Now check your valve clearance between the rockers and the top of the valve. The intake should be .006 and the exhaust .008, both can be +/- .001. To adjust: hold the large nut with the 14mm then loosen the small one with the 10mm. Lefty loosey. Now turn your large nut until you get the correct setting and then tighten the small one the lock it in. It may take a few attempts and alway reverify your setting after you lock it down. Once done, find top dead center again and reverify. Now your valves are set.

SOURCE: Craftsman pressure washer with honda engine. low pressure

Sounds like pump is not making pressure. Thats why you get flow, but no pressure.
If it sat for awhile, check shaft connection to pump. Sometimes the impeller or shaft will shear partially due to corrosion when stored. Seals on pump valves could be gone too. Get an exploded diagram, usually from owners manual, easily found for this model. Parts list should have "pump repair kit" with everything needed to bring it back to life.
You and a friend put it on the bench to work on it and save your back. The pumps are pretty easy to take apart and put back in working order.

SOURCE: My Karcer 5.55 pressure washer keeps cutting out,

It could be the low oil cut off stitch, make sure the oil is clean and full, and the switch wiring is tight. Next is bad gas, water remover and octane booster can fix this, finally, replace the spark plug, as they are known to go bad quickly by the vibrations of these tools.

SOURCE: Honda 5HP pressure washer.

Most small pressure washers do not have an automatic throttle control to increase engine speed on demand (activated by trigger on wand). You must set the governor/throttle to about max. to get the rated pressure. A honda motor produces 5 hp when it is turning about 3600 rpm. To increase the life of the pump, use about 80 % of capacity of the pump and increase only for stubborn debris.

My pressure washer stops running when i let off the trigger


hi there sal rick85

sounds like the unloader valve is not working or stuck closed , check the setting of the unloader valve may be set too high, the unloader must open in odrder to cycle water back to inlet side of pump - if not builds up heaps of pressure , stalls the engine - service the un loader valves on the pressure head

take look and let me know - what brand your blaster unit is i know its honda but what pump
comet - axd, lw/zw, - in line or axial cam

Doesn't retain its high power pressure for more than about 10 minutes and then it goes to being like a regular hose. Usually never regains that power unless I leave it off for a long time and sometimes...


The pressure washer may need new gaskets. When these fail, then you get the same result. The gaskets are available online, and at a Honda dealer.

I have a Blue Max high presure washer, 2200 psi.


Hi Greg. Walk into your nearest Lawn Mower parts supply with your engine model number (usually on the recoil) and they will have the replacement part or repair your old one. It is less expesive to have the old one repaired unless the support struts have broken. 2200 PSI should have a Honda GX160.

Here is another source....
http://www.northerntool.com/shop/tools/product_200327175_200327175

They can range from $32.00 to $68.00 depending on source.

Honda PN is: 28400-ZH8-013ZA (do net search this number) Or call your local Lawn Mower repair Supply with the number.

If you have a Briggs & Stratton engine I will need the ENGINE model number off of the air shroud just above the spark plug.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Karcher Power Washer that surges up and down with water pressure.


Before you start it up:
1. Disconnect the high pressure hose 2. Connect the water supply and turn on 3. Make sure water is flowing through the pump
Start the motor, run for about 10 seconds and then turn off.
Turn off the water supply, connect the high pressure hose, turn water back on, start the motor and away you go.

Not getting any pressure at nozzle.


Can anyone Solve this? My simoniz S2500 gas powered pressure washer has low pressure coming right from the outlet. It used to be high pressure until now.. I think it has something to do with the pump and if so, is there anything I can do to repair this problem? The screen is good; water comes out of the hose good, wand is ok......Just that lower pressure is at the wand even at high settings....It comes in a form of a spray in both modes......

Honda power washer dont have presser


Your unloader valve is stuck in your water pump. Remove it, lube the top o-ring with silicone grease. Then reinstall it. Use pump guard additive to prevent this problem from reoccuring.
