most auto stores have high pressure connectors and or machines
to make these connections. Also there are radiant heat connectors
that may or may not fit.

SOURCE: High pressure hose connection blew up. Fix? or buy new?

Yes take it to napa auto parts and they can cut and attach a new end which are for hydraulics. They are crimped on and meant to hold very very high pressure. I used to use a pressure washer everyday for a living and it was a tractor rental/repair shop and we used the hydraulic fitting machine on the power washer hose all the time so rest assured.

SOURCE: Water coming out of washer

Depending on the model of the machine, it is most likley a cracked control head or split outlet elbow. Remove the covers and run the machine to locate the source of the leak. Ifit is the control head it will spray water from the top just behind the chemical inlet elbow.

SOURCE: husky 1650 PSI power washer hose got brittle and broke.

If the $$ that you Husky Dealer is asking is to tall, try a garage that make brake hoses. Take the hose with you and many times they can remove your nozzle and install it on a new piece of hose. MAKE SURE that they understand that this hose is for a pressure washer...DO NOT use just any hose...it MUST be a high pressure rated hose.

Why won't the hose connect to the washer?


The connection is made at the bottom of unit.
should be standard garden hose.
sometimes I find if I gently hold hose against connection point then rotate counterclockwise until I feel a click! then ( without lifting hose) rotate clockwise and hose should now be threaded onto power washer.

HE3t has an FH error code checked the following and are OK. pressure switch, flow meter, and inlet valves water flows in without restriction. What else could it be? Craig


Hi,

Thank you for contacting fixya.com.

FH error code means low water inflow. In this error washer is not filling when the fill valve opens.
To clear the error please follow the bellow instructions:-
Press the "Stop" button twice with your finger. This cancels the cycle and stops the washer. Unplug the power cord from the wall outlet.Turn the water shut off valves clockwise to stop the water flow to the washer through the supply hoses. Pull the washer away from the wall enough that you can access the hose connections at the back of the washer.

Set a bucket under the area of the hose connections. Unscrew the hose connections from the back of the washer. If necessary, use a pair of slip joint pliers to help start the connections turning until you can turn them by hand. Set the ends of the hoses inside the bucket.Inspect the screens on the inlet ports on the back of the washer where the hoses connect. Sediment and other debris can block these screens, causing fill problems. Clean the screen with an old toothbrush.

Thread the hoses back onto the washer. Look for kinks in the hoses. Kinks cut off water supply to the washer which causes the FH error code. Once you connect the hoses, turn the water supply valves counter-clockwise to supply water to the washer. Move the bucket away from the washer and push the washer back into its working position.Plug the power cord back into the outlet and start the wash cycle again. If the FH error code comes up again, call a service repairman. If the hoses have no kinks and the inlet screens are clean, there is a problem with either the pressure switch or the flow meter.

Please get back to us if you have further query else please accept the suggestion.

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.

I am looking for a replacement hose for my Blue Max pw2200/03435. Does one exist? If so, where can I get one?


Here is a site that shows the lightweight blue max power washer hose
http://www.shopping.com/Psi-Blue-Max-2200-Psi-High-Pressure-Gas-Power-Washer/products
It looks to be a right-fine chinese product manufactured using the technology we paid-for and developed over the past 50 years and then gave away with our jobs overseas.

If you bump up to professional power washers..

Power washer hoses are interchangeable as long as the quick-connects on end of hose can unscrew.

We used power washers a couple times a week. When I needed a new hose, I went to the hydraulic hose shop. They make steel-wound hydraulic hoses for tractors and heavy equipment.

Search 'hydraulic hose in Your-town-your-state'

If the quick-connect ends of the Blue max hose do not come off, check the quick-connect end attached to machine. If it comes off, you can buy a new gun and hose. If the quick connect on the blue max machine does not come off, then the life of your machine is directly related to the life of that single quick-connect fitting.

Search 'power washer guns'

DARK CLOTHES END UP WITH BLEACH DOT STAINS


SOME BLEACH DISPENSERS USE COLD WATER TO FLUSH THE BLEACH FROM THE CUP. CHECK THE COLD WATER FOR GOOD PRESSURE. IF THERE ISN'T GOOD PRESSURE, REMOVE THE COLD WATER HOSE FROM THE MACHINE AND CHECK THE SCREEN INSIDE THE VALVE WHERE YOU REMOVED THE HOSE. PUT THE END OF THE HOSE IN THE TUB AND TURN IT ON. CHECK FOR GOOD PRESSURE. CLEAN THE SCREEN AND RECHECK THE WATER PRESSURE AFTER REINSTALLING THE HOSE AND TURNING ON THE WATER. IF YOU STIL HAVE POOR PRESSURE REPLACE THE VALVE.

operation will be affected by having only one hose connected - when water from the disconnected hose is demanded then machine will not continue. i assume hot hose not connected. easiest way to deal with this is to connect both hoses to a ~"y" piece. easily available and costs about £3
