The customer rating on this product at Lowe's is 1.5 stars out of 5. It is electric & operates on a series of pressure sensors and valves.I don't use electrics because There is no way to protect or lubricate the internal mechanisms from hard water sources. My guess is your machine jammed up as a result of hard water leaving residues on a switch, valve or sensor. I also learned many of the Lowes customers found no customer service for this item which leads me to believe it is a private labeled(made just for a limited store sale) machine fabricated in either Mexico or China. Your best recourse is to trash it and purchase a gas powered one with a CAT style pump(not mounted under the motor) in the future. Also, do the maintenance. These things need to be completely emptied of water after each use and lubed with a product such as "pump saver" and the fittings & triggers need to be sprayed with WD-40(it displaces water). If not they will clog, seize, corrode etc. If these "do all" pressure washers they are selling at Lowes & Home Depot with all the attachments were any good I would have bought 4 instead of spending the money I did on my set up. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news.

Will not build up pressure sounds like it is but as soon as you hit the trigger pressure goes away

Is this something new happening?

These machines quickly (a matter of seconds) build up to pressure and shut off. A slow leak is not much of a player. Eventually the pressure will bleed off and the pump come on (for a few seconds).

Pressure restored, should be good to go. Have you cleaned the inline filter to the hose. If there is a short burst of water then a dribble with a new hose, the filter is a first check

    No Pressure

    Same problem here. Machine still looks brand new. Absolutely no nicks in the hose. Electric power is just fine. I hear the motor, then when I squeeze the trigger, I get a weak dribble of water for about 5 seconds, then the motor is quiet for a while. This sound familiar to you? I just posted my similar problem. If you hear anything useful, please forward it to me : Ron

    Why does my washer start with a forcful stream and then cut doyn to minimum flow ?

    Check for kinked or clogged water supply hoses(s). Be sure to make sure that if there is a screen-like filter in the supply hoses or at the inlet on the wash machine, that it is clear.

    Shut the water supply off. Start the washer to fill on warm wash / rinse to relieve the water pressure in the hose. Shut off the washer. Unscrew the hose connection from the washer and direct both hoses into the washer tub (or other container). Turn the water supply on. Both hoses should discharge water evenly and forcefully, then shut the water off. If the flow was uneven, slow or poor - clear obstructions in / or replace the hose(s). Next, inspect the water inlet on the washer. Clear any obstructions, dirt, etc. Reconnect the hoses and try again. If flow is still lacking, there may be obstructions in water lines or valves INSIDE the machine.

    I hope this helps - please rate my reply. Thanks.

    Honda excell pressure washer does not have pressure

    if the machine is running on suction, ie sucking out of a barrel there may be an air leak on the suction hose or pump. it will pull air easier than pulling water .

    put the machine under mains water pressure, hose pipe straight from tap to pump.
    check all around the pump and inlet pipes for leaks.
    if water leaking this needs rectifiying for it to work on suction.
    run the pressure washer while on mains pressure with the hose on, does this make a difference?

    if not then probably the unloader is stuck in the pump head. remove unloader , clean and replace it
    parts breakdowns are available on the internet for your machine.

    possibly valves stuck, or the valve springs have broken, seen this quite few times on these machines. if so replace springs .

    These sort of machines do not last very long anyway, about 50 hours use if your lucky.

    Leaking machine

    Could be caused by several reasons.
    1- Overfilling, check water level .
    2-Blockage in dispenser, or dispenser inlet hose to drum
    3-Drawer not in properly.
    4-M/c not draining properly, thus when it goes into spin, water could be thrown up by centrifugal force, and come out of the front of the drawer.Check filter.
    5-Water pressure very high, forcing water out of drawer, adjust pressure.
    Plz rate my soution.

    Brewing stops mid cycle

    Sounds like dosage is too high and grind is too fine.

    Rule of thumb with any saeco unit.

    Do not grind any finer then 2 or your looking for trouble.

    Open grinder, clean it out with a vac. Slapped it back on.

    The reason it stops is grind is too fine, and the machine doesn't have enough pressure to pass threw the grinds, creates back pressure in the machine and the unit failsafes after a certain amount of time with and pressure.

    Back pressure is what blew your boiler.
