SOURCE: LXGH E5 Code

I need to check my codes to be positive. And I'll check them this weekend. But, I believe E5 is from excess water in the unit, and so it won't go into rinse and add more water.

First and most common -- the drain hose, at the back of the unit is kinked. The unit gets pushed back against the wall and kinks the line.

Second, your probes are dirty. The ones in the back right corner detect water level. Clean them with a green scrungee even if they look clean.

Good luck - Mike

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: I have an old kew pressure washer and when I pull

Dear dennis_partr,
In general all pressure washers have a control valve. This is sometimes refered to as the Spill Valve. When the trigger is pulled, the spill valve is in normal position. When the trigger is released, the spill valve compresses to let water circulate from its bottom part. If when the trigger is pulled and the bottom part of the spill valve does not close, then water keeps on circulating and hence no pressure. In this case change the spill valve with a new one. Also there could be a fault in the sucktion valves. If the sucktion vaves do not close, also water keeps on circulating. One also can examine the delivery valves. If these are not closing, then water is being sucked while delivering. Hence no pressure. Another cause but very rare, is that the swash plate that is pushing the pistons got loose. The electric motor will be turning, but the pistons stay in the same position.
I mentioned many causes, but usualy it is the spill valve. If with a new spill valve, there is still no pressure....then you must tackle the sucktion and then the delivery valves.
I wish to add that I assume that you have the correct lance and correct nozzel size. A worn out nozzel, will result in low prssure too.
Regards,
Fulltech.

Coleman 2400 PSI Pressure Washer - WATER LEAKS OUT = ?!? Help me please!!! ((-:


Usually, there are spaces between the pump and head portion of the pump. This space is not sealed and will allow water leaking past the seals to come out. There may be a seal kit available, however I have had better luck just changing out the whole pump. There are many available on ebay. Search for one that will use same mount and hoses. Once the seals are gone, the pump will never be the same (may nickle and dime you the death).

Water leaking in from freezer into main refrig at the back


Remove the food and the ice maker from the freezer ( if equiped ) . Remove the rear freezer panel . Using a hair dryer , start in the middle , below the coils , defrosting , until you see the drain hole . Use hot water to help defrost the hole . Once water starts going thru the hole , use a small hose inserted into the hole , and blow thru , to remove any unseen debris in the drain line . Use an ALUMINUM or COPPER solid wire , 14-16 guage , with the insulation completely off , and insert one end into the drain hole as far as possible without any force . Wrap the other end about 1 1/2 to 2 turns , around the black rod (defrost heater) , above the hole . When refrig goes into defrost , the heat will transfer from the heater , to the wire , keeping the hole from freezing up again .

Leaks coolant were could it come from


If you don't know where it is coming from, you have to find that out. Check the location of the spot on the floor, if you don't have a floor, put down a piece of cardboard, locate the drip, then look under the hood for what it is that is leaking. It could be the overflow on the expansion tank, could be your AC condensate line dripping, could be one of those tiny coolant lines that return to the back of the engine, could be the water pump, could be a hole in a hose. I don't know why the pressure check didn't show anything, might be something else. Check it out.

Motor startup trouble while pressure in tank


My first thought was that the check valve is allowing pressure back into the compressor and preventing the motor from turning. That's still my best guess right now.

I think the cold weather start symptom is what you would see with any engine/motor -- it requires more torque to get it going. In this scenario, if the check valve weren't leaking, it would start okay when cold.

Sand Blaster: air shot out of water trap.


1. do you have an adequate air compressor, meaning can deliver sufficient air supply to the sand blaster. 2. if you have an air leak at the water trap at the bottom of the trap it self. you need a new one. 3. it is a must to have a water trap when using a sand blaster.
So what I would do is replace the water trap and install the new water trap at the compressor between the compressor and the air hose coupling. the reason for this is your less likely to have it fail at the compressor VS at the sand blaster. once you have done that. you need to make sure that you have no more than 3/4 of media / sand in the sand blaster itself.
then open air supply valve #1 where the water trap is or was a 1/4 -1/2 way. then open the mid way valve#2 1/4 - 3/4 way. and the bottom valve#3 open 1/4 - 3/4 way. getting the air supply valves all set correctly is hard to do some times.

Air valve #1 supplys the air to the blaster.( more air the better)
Air valve #2 supplys the air going into the top of the blaster tank. ( wich pressurizes the top of the tank to push the sand or media downward )
Air valve #3 supplys the air mixture to sand at the bottom of the tank.
