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

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.

Black and Decker PW1300 Type 1 Pressure Washer The unit will not pressurize, the motor stays on, the water ways seem clear, a low pressure stream (normal for "motor off") comes out when I...


Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly.
Not sure if anyone has responded to you but.... This is a symptom of the unloader / bypass valve sticking. The unloader bypass valve is located on the output side of the pump either under a brass cap or an extended stem with a knob on it for pressure adjustment.
Try this...
- Lay the unit down so that the water supply connection fitting is facing up. Leave the high pressure hose connected with wand. (Power to the unit)
  • First inspect the inlet screen for debris.
  • Next pour about 3 oz of regular automotive engine oil in the water supply fitting. Take your time... do momentary on / off cycles of the switch (bump the pump.... on / off) You are trying to get oil to the outlet fitting (No more than 1 second on off cycles)
  • Check for evidence of oil at outlet fitting
  • Leave it set overnight with oil in the unit. (Water supply and outlet fittings up.)
NEXT DAY.... add 2 oz more oil and connect water supply. (PURGE HOSE of ALL air before connecting)
  • Do not pull wand trigger yet
  • Cycle unit on and off about 10 times slowly... don't ruin the switch then let sit 10 mins.
  • Turn unit on without triggering and let run for about 2 minutes.
  • NEXT STEP be advised your going to shoot out OIL
  • Begin triggering the wand on 1 sec off 3 seconds for at least 2 minutes (your trying to get the unloader bypass spring / plunger and seals to start moving inside the pump high pressure area.)
  • If your wand has a soap application function make sure the wand is in the HIGH PRESSURE position. (Closed CCW)
This procedure does not always work but, I have revived about 70 % of the pressure washers I worked on by just doing these steps. If the procedure does not work... you will have to disassemble the unloader / bypass valve by pulling it out of the housing and then cleaning up the inside of the pump housing and wiping the seals clean. IMPORTANT STEP here: Before inserting the valve back into the pump housing you MUST lubricate it with #105 white grease. Housing and unloader / bypass valve parts. (white grease in small tubes at any automotive parts source.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

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.

Trigger problems


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.

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
