Have a helper hold the trigger of the wand open while you try it again. If it starts that way you have a sticky unloader valve in the pump. DO NOT RELEASE the trigger for more than 10 seconds if the engine continues to strain when released! If the engine doesnt run freely when you let go of the trigger, pull it again and shut down the unit!
Add some power steering fluid to your supply hose (about 3 or 4 ounces at a time) and restart the unit with the trigger pulled. Allow the oil to flow through the pump for 1 - 2 minutes for each treatment. Several treatments should make the pump and valve happy again.

Hope this helps.

Previous owner had way overfilled crankcase oil. Oil had gotten into carb and clogged air filter. Drained oil to correct level. Ran engine but kept cutting off-see above. Took off carb cover cleaned housing and ran without air filter-ran fine. Unsuccessfully tried to clean air filter with gas-did not work. Apparently, the engine could run just long enough to exhaust the air in the old filter and cut off which is why it would start back up after a few seconds. Bought new air filter-whole thing-about $15 at Carquest. Put in some carb cleaner and installed the new filter and it runs perfectly.

Is the garden hose connected and turned on?If so make sure that the trigger on the gun is being pulled while your trying to start the engine! The backed up pressure in the high pressure hose can mimic a blown or seized engine in this situation.

What is max. gpm and pis of the wisperflo punp 011773


Your question sort of requires two answers as the max flow and max psi are not the same yet relate to one another.

The max flow is ~105 gpm at ~26 ft./hd or 11.3 psi.

The max psi (head) the pump can operate under is 40 psi or ~85 ft./hd at which flow is ~35 gpm.

In other words, in a pipe system with low resistance it moves up to 105 gpm and in a very complex system with lots of elevation changes and a lot of resistance the pump will move about 35 gpm.

PSI as read on a gauge on a filter attached to this pump will NOT be the same as the ratings I am giving you here.

Hello
Take out the spark plug and try pulling,if it is still hard then then there is a problem with the pull start mechanism.
Check the plug for oil fouling or fresh oil.If there is excessive oil you may have bad rings.

If in doubt, craftsman will honor the 1 year warranty no questions asked,for a new unit.

It is possible that the oil pressure switch is not functioning properly or you have a lighter oil in the machine than is recommended.
