Maybe just the pressure switch is stuck or you have trapped pressure in the lance. Try without the high pressure hose and then activate the pressure switch on the side of the pump as this may not be letting the machine to statr if its stuck.

Where would I go to get our pressure washer serviced? I live in the Saskatoon, Sask. surrounding area.

Does the electric motor keep running? If it does continue to run with the trigger in the spraying position, then your pressure switch and motor are OK. If the motor is running and the water is not coming out with pressure, then either your check valves are not closing properly or the pumping mechanism is in need of repair. I think those little electrics have a simple wobble plate design. Basically not worth the effort to fix them

No power

usually if your unit does not start, the high pressure switch has failed to return to normal position, this can be caused buy poorly constructed switch housing or faulty micro will need to take it out of its casing and locate the plastic housing that has two wires inside. inspect this for functionality repair or replace and test unit before re-assembling CAUTION avoid touching any wires that may be live when testing!

No power or pressure when switched on

as per your manual the pressure washer should only be used for a maximum number of minutes to keep from overloading the motor and causing it to seize. There should be a "RESET" switch or button due to a protection circuit built in to keep from damaging the unit. Please refer to manual for location of reset switch/button

Switch power on and it works and then it switches off and will not switch back on until you leave it for period of time and then it powers up again

This is an indication that it is overheating in the motor. When this happens, very carefully check the temp of the motor and see if it is too hot.

Motor won't start

Make sure water is on. Try pushing test and then reset on the built in GFCI on the plug. If it's not a dead motor, when you hit reset, the motor should kick on for a second when you reset it.

Reset switch won't work

this is usuall caused by the high pressure cut out switch not returning properly. the high pressure cut out switch is a plastic assembly on the pressure head. open it up ,lubricate or file it to increase space. then test before re-assembling it, beware of possible exposed wires and chance of comming into contact with electricity. disconnect power while working in it!

How do i enter in safe mode on my poweredge 1800 ?

If the server is running Windows, you can usually enter safe mode by repeatedly pressing F8 after you press the power switch.
You can also get into the dell utility, which lets you run memory and system tests. To access this, follow the on screen directions during boot up.
