SOURCE: craftsman model 580.752020 electric pressure

turn off water and machine electrics.

remove high pressure hose from front of machine, this may be tight if there is still pressure in the system.
turn on water, when water comes out of machine hose outlet turn on machine. does the machine turn on and water flow increase, if so you probably have a blocked lance jet or trigger.

remove lance extension if fitted and fit hose back to machine, try again. If its ok then this proves you have a blocked lance jet, maybea poke about with some stiff wire will free the obstruction.

If this doesnt bring on the machine you probably have a jammed pressure switch on the pump.

this pressure switch turns on the pump when the trigger is pulled and switches the motor off when the trigger is released.

hope this helps.

SOURCE: Have a tradesman h120 pressure washer..it will not

If the pump was run without having the supply hose hooked up and water to the pump before turning it on, you have destroyed the seals and they need replacing.

Why does washer leak excessive water?


Some times the power washer are made poorly. If the leaks are at the hose connection you can replace plastic with a better one made of brass and the use of Teflon tape. Good luck

How to set a high pressure unloader valve on a FAIP 1500 H120 washer


Are you talking about the electric switch that shuts off the motor when the trigger is released?
If so, there is an arm that comes out of the high pressure side of the manifold and is connected to a spring loaded piston. The piston extends under high pressure (spray trigger released) and retracts when spraying. At the opposite end of the arm is an allen screw and locknut. The allen screw bears on the microswitch arm to control the electric motor. When properly adjusted, the motor should turn off when the trigger is released. If it doesn't, loosen the locknut and adjust the allen screw slightly outwards toward the switch. Pull the trigger a few times and verify the motor starts up and shuts down when you release it. Tighten locknut.
Hope that helps.

Need more info:
What fuse? the one at the end of the cord on the pressure washer? Or the circuit breaker on your house?

If it is the one on the cord it may have gone bad. To test replace it with normal plug (non-GFI) and plug it into an outdoor or bathroom GFCI (GFI) outlet. If it still trips that outlet then there is a ground fault in the device which may be minor or major.

If it is a home circuit breaker remember that electric pressure washers use a lot of power - typically 1500 watts. If anything else is plugged in it can trip the house circuit breaker.

Faip model H120 doesn't shut off


The contacts on the microswitch have probably eroded a bit with age. The simple fix is to remove the red cover and adjust the setscrew that hits the microswitch plunger. Loosen the locknut and use an allen wrench to adjust the set screw. If you aren't sure which to adjust, power up the washer and pull the trigger while watching the motor assy. You'll see an arm moving outward when the trigger is released and in when you pull it. Follow this arm to the adjusting screw. Had the same problem with mine and had to move the screw OUT a half turn.
Hope this helps.

Pump won't run


Did you figure this out yet? If not.

Did you check the onboard GFI breaker switch?
Did you make sure the water was connected and turned on?

What type of oil is used to fill the a FAIP PV93501 pump and what quanity.


I don't know about that brand of power washer.
We used several types of power washers over the years, and they each called for 20 or 30 weight non-detergent oil in the pump. SAE 20 or SAE 30

The pump oil comes about half way up inside the pump.

The engine oil is 10W30

Do not turn a power washer on its side or upside down or oil will run into carburetor.

No power going to the machine


A few things to check, the GFI plug has tripped, the machine has safety switches under cover, could have gotten wet and froze. Take cover off, plug machine in, with a electrical tester start where power enters machine and test all switches till you find bad one.
