SOURCE: 2-yr old troy-bilt pressure washer with honda

It sounds like an air lock. Try this: With the machine off, connect the hose to the washer and let it run for several minutes to get all of the air out of the hose, and to purge any air out of the pump. Shut off the water, and connect the high pressure hose, but not the gun. Let the water run for several minutes. stretch out the HP hose and make sure that the air is displaced. Shut off the water, connect the gun, and purge as before. Now crank it washer up. As quickly as safe to do so, open the trigger to keep water moving through the washer. It should come up on pressure very quickly. It is better during normal operation to keep water moving through the system. When I am through for a while, I shut down my washer, but leave the trigger depressed to allow the pump to stay full of water, and cool. This prevents further problems when I restart it.
Hope this was useful.

Regards --W/D--

SOURCE: pressure washer not working

sketchy info here....

Remove the hose and gun to see if water is flowing....
if it is that means there is no blockage in the hose or gun. When its connected if it runs at the same rate as without the hose and you have set it into pressure clean mode, then the pressure valve and seal have collapsed. Estimated repair cost is $200 and about $100 of that is labor. It is not a DIY unless you know your way around and have the right tools. Having it repaired professionally gives you 3 months warranty as well. Do it yourself and you could end up losing some of the small screws and other nylon components that tend to drop out and get lost when you open it up!

SOURCE: New Troy-Bilt 3000 psi - Very Hard to Hot Start

When you run the unit and shut if off, release the pressure from the spray wand before trying to restart the engine. This built up pressure will cause it to be very hard to start as you have found out. If it does not start on the second pull release the pressure again. Another option is do do what I did on mine. I simply put a pull tie on the handle so I can pull the trigger back and use the pull tie to hold the trigger open. Make sure if you do this, that you remove the high pressure orifice from the end of the wand before attempting to start the engine. Otherwise the pressure will come on abruptly and could injure you or do property damage.

SOURCE: When I release the tigger the pressure washer

When the trigger is pushed, the engine is supposed to rev up to increase the pressure. So from the description, is sounds like the idle speed is simply set to low and it dies. So just set the idle speed higher. You could set it as high as pulling the trigger does if you want, but that would waste gas.

All outflow stops when I start the motor on my Troy-bilt 2600 pressure washer. What's up?


Could also be crack/leak in HP pump. If it were left in cold weather without antifreeze, I'd check there first. Part + labor might warrant new washer if more than a couple years old.
Sorry.

Troy-bilt riding mower won't move in forward or reverse


I had a similar problem with my TroyBilt 50 inch zero turn mower. Was cutting grass when it stopped going either forward or backward even though it would start and the PTO would move the cutting blades. Turned out the tensioner spring for the belt that drives the motors near the rear wheels had gone missing. Searched the yard where I had cut and moved the machine but couldn't find it. A new one cost me about $7.50. Put the new one on and it worked fine.

How do I replace the trigger on a TB 525cs? I have the part butneed to know where the spring goes?


Some are easier than others. You will need the correct size hex head screw driver - remove the screws that release the cover exposing the trigger. The spring will go between the trigger and housing.

Troy bilt self propelled assembled in the box got it out of the box and finished setup but when it came to the pull start cord it would not pull am i missing something?


The unit has a safety feature that stops the engine with a brake when you release the handle. In order to start the engine you have to release this brake by squeezing the handle lever as if you were mowing. You have to hold this lever in that position as you pull the cord.

The spring placement for the trigger replacement


Look at the old trigger and see where the spring has been rubbing. Place the spring around the trigger post and slide it into the trigger housing. With help of a small screw driver or scribe to flip the trailing end of the spring over the stop post in the housing. Hope this helps
