SOURCE: on a generac pressure washer that works fine.

Oil level in pump and motor OK? Spark plug not fouled? Has it sat for a while - carb dirty? Running (loaded) throttle rpm not high enough?

SOURCE: honda pressure washer cuts out when lance trigger released.

You most likely need to set your valve clearances. If it is hard to pull over or the recoil snaps back after starting your valves need to be set for sure. This may not be the entire problem but it is a good start. Also change the spark plug, a bad plug will cause odd problems and is too cheap not to eliminate as a source. In addition check your fuel, pour a little out into a white container (I like spray paint can caps for this) and look at the color. If it is yellow to orange it is bad. You can pour it into you car, the car electronic sensors will compinsate for it quality but a small engine can't. Use a NGK BP6ES or BPR6ES plug.
You need:
Feeler gages
10mm open end wrench
14mm open end wrench
1 long shaft screw driver or rod
1 spark plug socket and ratchet

Remove the spark plug and the valve cover. Pull the recoil over slowly until the intake valve opens (intake is closes to the carb and it will go down when it opens). Now put your long screwdrive down the spark plug hole. Slow pull the engine over until the screwdriver handle is at it highest point, this is top dead center. It may take a few attempts. Now check your valve clearance between the rockers and the top of the valve. The intake should be .006 and the exhaust .008, both can be +/- .001. To adjust: hold the large nut with the 14mm then loosen the small one with the 10mm. Lefty loosey. Now turn your large nut until you get the correct setting and then tighten the small one the lock it in. It may take a few attempts and alway reverify your setting after you lock it down. Once done, find top dead center again and reverify. Now your valves are set.

SOURCE: pressure washer does not spray consistent flow of pressure

Pressure washers have a pressure regulator/unloader that bypasses the water back into the intake when you let go of the trigger with motor running. If you let the machine run for long preiods in bypass the system could be damaged due to heating of the water being bypassed. The water is in a closed loop. The as the unloader wears it will tend to want to bypass which is what is happening in your case. Dirt trapped at the tip will cause this also. Install clean tip to solve problem. If clean tip did not help then try lowering the pressure by turning pressure regulator counterclock wise. If problem is gone then parts are failing but keep using pump. Good luck.

SOURCE: pressure washer starts fine and

The pressure unloader us usually the first part/s that fail. An unloader can fail resulting in no or very low pressure or good pressure, however will not unload when trigger is released and stall the motor. Look at breakdown for your pump and determine if unloader parts are available and reasonable. If too costly to replace these parts then install an ez start valve to help start engine and tie back wand handle to deal with unloader problem (workaround). Ez start valve can be seen here:

When not in use, store washer with oil in pump to displace the water. The oil will help lube internal parts and possibly cause the unloader to begin working (if stuck due to debris/rust). You can find a gizmo to help you feed oil into pump on ebay /other web locations. Good luck with your repair.

Motor will not idle down


Your carburetor is the problem. Either have it serviced or get a new carburetor. You can service it yourself, you will need carburetor cleaner, very thin gauged wire, air compressor if you have one to blow out the ports etc..

Also you can check out you tube for videos on how to clean a 4 cycle carburetor

My honda xr2600 pressure washer stops running when i pull the trigger


check for a blocked main jet in the carby
the principle is that when the trigger is released there is no pressure in the pump so the engine is idling
when the trigger is pulled the pressure control valve closes the bypass back to the pump and so the motor is loaded up if there is a problem in the carby ,then the motor will stall

After turning off power washer, it makes several creaking or groaning like noises. Never heard it before , its a craftsman power washer, is there something wrong. Or is it getting too hot. Help.


To hot. Don't let it set and run without the pressure handle being released. If you take your hand off the trigger for more than a couple minutes. Shut it down.

Xtreme pressure washer keeps cutting out.


If it is a gas powered machine and it cuts out when you release the spray gun trigger, it means that your unloader valve is stuck closed.
It would help to have more information about your machine and your problem. Gas or electric? Does it start up and run fine or cut out a few seconds after starting? Does it cut out when you release the trigger?
Does it cut out while spraying?

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

When I release the tigger the pressure washer stops running. Runs fine as long as trigger is depressed. What could cause this?


When the trigger is pushed, the engine is supposed to rev up to increase the pressure. So from the description, is sounds like the idle speed is simply set to low and it dies. So just set the idle speed higher. You could set it as high as pulling the trigger does if you want, but that would waste gas.
