Open Question

The quick connect attachment on the hose is leaking when connected to the machine. I would like to take off that attachment and replace it with a standard connector similar to a garden hose. How do I do this.

SOURCE: Had the Northstar 3000 psi Pressure Washer for 2

It is easy to check if your hose and quick connects are supplying enough water to the pump. Your pressure washer gallon per minuite requirements are printed on the machine and also on the pressure tips in GPM. Your post indicates 2.5 gpm but check your documentation of GPM. Next remove the tip from the wand and connect your hose with current quick connects to the machine. Start engine and direct the pressure wand into a bucket for exactly one minute. Measure the amount of water in the bucket, it should be very close to stated gallons. Do the same test with tip installed and compare measurement. If pump is starving for water you will not get proper amount of water in the bucket and the water hose will collapse. Two to four gallons of water per minute is not very demanding and should be delivered even with very small opening. You can even just direct the hose into the bucket for one minute and check how much water your hose is capable of delivering. I believe that you will find no problem with water delivery to pump. I would certainly enlighten Northern with your findings and question their evaluation. When you start using your pressure washer again try using it at lowest pressure to get the job done. Lowering the pressure to about 75% of max will increase the life of the pump and engine. Good luck with you pump

My 20 gallon campbell hausfeld wont hold air.what could be the problem


There is an air leak somewhere in either the tank connections or the hose connections. Look at the tank and find the tube that runs from the top of the compressor to the tank (usually a brass line). grab a spray bottle and fill it with a soapy solution (dish washing soap and water is fine). Disconnect the rubber air hose from the tank (at the quick disconnect) and start the compressor. Spray the dishwashing solution on the brass line end fittings at the compressor head and the tank connection, and the quick disconnect fitting and where the quick disconnect connects to the air tank. If you see bubbles being blown, that is where your leak is. Also connect the hose to the tank and check your hose for leaks with the soapy solution. Once you find where the leak is, you can tighten the fitting or replace the faulty gasket or hose.

Water goes on to floor when filling washing machine. All hoses are connected securely.Machine was previously overloaded and shifted considerably when when nobody was home.

sounds like one of the hoses connecting drum or pump is adrift.most times these can be most readily seen with the machine lying on its back.make sure all power & water connections are off!

Your water pump is attached to the motor and is probably the source of your water leak.
Replace the pump.
