Homelite 2600 Pressure washer stalls while in use


problem appears to be blockage in the main jet or low fuel flow to the carby
clean out the main jet and bowl ( could be water or dirt in the main jet)
check the fuel flow through the tap as they can corrode inside and block the flow or the filter in the tap inside the tank could be blocked

Tip

WARNING: Do not allow PW to run "dry"


It is recommended that once pressure washer is in operation and water flow thru wand is there ,that you do not allow off period between burst of no more that 2 minutes or you highly risk damage to your pump,not engine, due to overheating. See if Dump valve is adjustable,cheaper models not adjustable. This valve senses pressure/heat build up in pump when trigger is released, and is a secondery backup to release such heat/pressure to avoid pump failure. If you have repeatly left trigger off for more than 2 minutes in for prolonged periods of time,this is not good.

Portercable Pressure Washer Model PCH2401


when the trigger for the wand is not pulled , there is a pressure relief valve that bypasses the water in the pump and so there is no pressure until the trigger is pulled again.
with the pump getting hot and not being able to pull the motor to restart, it indicates that that pressure relief valve has jammed ( faulty ) and the pump is running at full pressure all the time
That will heat the pump and stop the engine from restarting
That valve is where I would start looking for a problem

Water surges when you pull the trigger


If you have not flushed all air out of hoses prior to starting motor this may be the first symptom. If the water pressure from the spigot is competing with the clothes washer, shower etc. there may not be enough pressure to supply the demand of your pressure washer. A gauge attached to the spigot can give you a gallons per minute reading or take a five gallon bucket and time how long it takes to fill the bucket. ie: if the bucket fills in 2 minutes you have 2.5 gallons per minute. You may need this much to get un-interupted pressure for a 2400- or 2500 unit. Most residential properties are pipe sized from 3/4" pipe at the water main spigot at the front of the house down to a 1/2" pipe size at the rear of the house to maintain pressure.

PWER WASHER RUNS PERFECT, WHEN WATER COMES ON, IT STALLS. BUT IF YOU PULL TRIGGER BACK ON WAND, THEN SPRAYER WORKS. THE MINUTE YOU LET GO OF TRIGGER, IT STALLS OUT.


hi you have got a fault with the unloader it's not unloading so its going a bove the 13amps and knocking the thermol overload out or blowing a fuse you could cable tie the trigger open or get a new unloader kit costing about £70.00 regards

Pressure washer stalls out when wand nozzle is released


common for not starting unless trigger engaged as you are turning the pump as well as engine creating pressure,as for stalling pump has unloader valve which is probably in need of grease(use good silicone grease)this allows water to ciculate when trigger released.

When motor is at idle speed it surges


Try a simple test. It is ok to run the pump without water for a short time. Check idle speed without water in system to see if enginet surges. If it does not surge, then most likely the unloader/ pressure valve is causing the engine to surge when in the unloaded state. Life of unloader /pressure valve is shortened by letting system bypass for long periods of time. Enjoy
