Are you really sure it's not working? Most of these only dispense detergent when the lowest pressure spray head is attached. If that's not the problem then the next most likely thing to check for is a blockage in the tubing that connects your detergent bottle to the main unit. If this was not fully rinsed out after the last time it was used, any residual detergent remaining in the line will often solidify which results in blocking the line. Good luck

In addition to the comment above regarding the need to use a low pressure (soap) tip, there's a chance the tanks or the hoses from the tanks to the valve and/or from the valve to the pump is plugged with dried detergent. The easiest way to clean out the hoses, unless you can see the plug with the detergent bottle removed, is to remove the top cover and pull all the hoses and flush them out. Removing the cover is not too bad. There are several recessed screws underneath, including a couple above the wheels that requires removing the wheels and axle.

FUNCTION PROBLEM SC681-19 FOR RICHO SP C830DN


This is an error code for the RFID which is the toner bottle chip on the the toner bottles. I would suggest you check the toner cartridges for any damaged or disconnected chips, have you changed to non ricoh toners as this can sometimes cause a problem. Check each bottle if you have any old empty bottles insert one of these into corresponding colour slot and you can then see which bottle is causing the error. Failing this the board will need to be changed. I have had errors on non ricoh bottles. you can also vac out the slot to clear spilt toner. hope this helps

I'm sorry to say that it will need to be replaced. You will never get the detergent out of all the nooks and crannies. Can you file an insurance claim?

Can you please tell me what type of oil is used in a toolex air compressor. Cheers Mary


I use Powermate Synthetic Blend air compressor oil. It is a non-detergent air compressor oil sold at most hardware stores where compressors are sold. Any oil that is specifically designed for air compressors will state so on the bottle.

What type of oil is needed for a Honda GC160 Power Washer? Honda 2500 PSI x 2.3 GPM.


The type of oil recommended for that engine is SAE 10W-30 and the capacity is 0.61 quarts. This and more can be referenced at the website at the end of this solution. I was able to find the owners manual of your particular engine.

I have tried to use my Karcher washer model 411A using the suction tube which is immersed into Patio cleaner bottle but it does not work what am I doing wrong


you have to lower the pressure at the lance for the detergent to be drawn into the hose. It works on a venturi principle.
on the lance you will have to twist or pull back the end for it to go into low pressure mode.

the easiest way to check it is working is to take out the lance extension , the bit that fits into the trigger on a bayonet fitting. run the machine and see if it then draws in detergent.

If it doesnt draw detergent then look to see if there is a detergent valve fitted to the filter that goes into the bottle and check that it is fully open. sometimes ther is a non return valve fitted into the filter too.
it could be that this non return valve has stuck. A poke with a bit of stiff wire should free it off its seat if it is that problem.

hope this helps a little

I have a detergent tank and cant seem to get detergent to come out what do I need to do?


Dear bug4222,
I have never worked on your type of machine. But generally this is what you do. Disconect the pipe from the inlet to the machine. Attach another pipe and put the other end in a bottle of water. Start machine and on low pressure see if the machine sucks water from the bottle. If this does not happen, try to service the inlet part at the machine. This usually it will have a ball-bearing as a non-return valve. This non-return valve sometimes gets stuck. If you see that you have solved the fault in the non-return valve, attach the detergent tank as it was, but instead of detergent, use water. You should always use low pressure. If all is OK, try some detergent. Always remember that after using detergent, always pass clear water from the detergent tank. If you leave detergent in the system, this will cause problems.
Regards,
Fultech.
