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.

The only way that it will feed detergent is by using the correct nozzle for the detergent. It's a lower pressure tip which allows the valve for the detergent to open. It's the black tip. It's either that or if it's an older one, there is a twisting wand that controls the pressure and spray pattern, which has to be twisted to the widest pattern with lowest pressure

Sounds like the thermal switch is shutting it down. It is either bad or something is causing the motor to run too hot.

On page 25 under trouble shooting for greenworks 1700 it states that you can turn nozzle tip to a high or low pressure position. how is that done?


The owners manual was badly written by someone in China whose English is a second language. The output pressure is set at the factory. The only thing the consumer can do is change the spray pattern by changing the nozzle. 0 for pinpoint, 25 for small fan spray pattern, 40 for large fan spray pattern, and Soap for dispersal.

How to repair non-functioning detergent bottle


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
