When water is running through system, the motor has to run to keep the pressure built up. So, if the water is leaking out, the motor think it needs to keep running to keep the pressure built up. The leak needs to be fixed to the motor will not run constantly.

Does anyone have a answer as to why all of a sudden theres no water and presure coming out of my jet washer


If there is no water from you power washer it is because the is no water going in. Check fitting is connected properly. When you pull the trigger and the machine is not running you should get water coming out of the nozzle That shows that water from the tap is passing through the machine. As to no pressure that will be a fault in the regulator valve that is not reacting to the trigger setting and allowing the pump to build up pressure. It is still reading as if you haven't pulled the trigger

I bought a honda pressure washer power boss 3000. I load the gasoline, start the machine, but pressure water is not coming out from the trigger. i tried so many things , but can t get started.


If you are using a water tank for water supply, remove the water supply line from the pressure washer and connect a water hose from a faucet. Turn the water on, then crank the engine. Pull the trigger of the spray gun until water comes out. When then water starts to spray properly the release the trigger, shut engine down with pressure on the line then reconnect the water supply from the tank to the pressure washer. If this fixes the problem then the problem was "air-locked"! Happens alot with new pressure washers that have never been run. If you need any other help, please email me @ davidandlisacampbell@yahoo.com

Engine runs , not getting any water flow when trigger pressed.


Disconnect hoses.
Look for kink in water hose.
Check incoming water connection for filter washer
Replace filter washer
If you don't have a filter washer, put one in.
Hook up water, and turn on
Water should come out other side of pump.
Turn on machine.
Do you get pressured water out of pump.
If no pressure, then pump is suspect
Hook up washer hose without gun
Does pressure come out of washer hose
Finally, the gun trigger may be bad.

We had to buy guns now and then.
Search for pressure washer guns

How do we get the cleaner to go up the hose


We used to add a clorox mixture when we power-washed

There is a special fitting that goes on the power washer line
The fitting is a T with 2 quick connects that match your pump&hose quick connects
The T fitting attaches to pump >> the power washer line attaches to T
The T fitting has a short extension where you attach a plastic hose that goes to your bucket of clorox
The T has a small one-way ball valve that only lets clorox enter the power washer line, but power washer pressure doesn't escape into the clorox
The small ball will clog over time, so when you buy a T, see if you can get replacement part

When you pull the trigger, the pump pressure shoots water out of the gun
The water pressure shooting out of the gun creates a suction that draws up the clorox
The clorox enters the line and gets shot out of the gun
The same basic idea is used on shallow well pumps

We discovered after a few years that is was easier-to-control and cheaper to apply the clorox with a pump-up hand sprayer. We could apply more clorox. The machine was not exposed to chemicals.
Remember the engine draws-in surrounding vapors and those vapors can chew up the metal parts of any combustion surface.

Cant start the unit ,there is to much pressure on the pull chord when water is hooked up.


Trying to start a pressure washer with water supply on and gun trigger off will be a difficult task. It could be comparred to trying to start a lawn mower with the mower in tall grass. Place the mower on the drive or walkway and pulling the rope to start the engine is much easier. It is easy to start your pressure washer with no water in the system however there is a remote possibility that you could overheat the seals if you take too long to turn on the water. It is a little more difficult to start the washer with water supply on and someone holding the trigger to wand open. This will prevents pressure from building and making engine hard to start. You will not damage your washer if you start it with water supply off if you flood the pump and pressure hose with water first . Here is the procedure I use if i am working alone. I trun on the water to pump and open trigger to gun to allow water to flow into pump and pressure hose. Turn off water (leaving the water supply on will make it a little harder to pull starter). Start engine while holding trigger to gun open. When engine starts release gun causing unloader to activate circulating water in pump. Now turn on water and you are ready to work. If your system is under warranty however, I would advise to use the starting procedure outlined by mfg (hold open trigger to gun however). To get the longest life from unit try using it at say 75% of capacity or lower if your can and use max pressure on the tuffest jobs. Leaving your washer at full pressure for all jobs is like driving your car at 100 mph everywhere your go. Good luck.
