Normally, it is one of three things.

1.) The high pressure seals are bad

2.) There is debris in the check valves

3.) the unloader is stuck in by-pass.

Comet axd 3020 will not build pressure


junk axial wobble plate pump. Usually axial pumps are not worth the time to try to fix them. This one has a 5 year warranty , so they think they have a pretty good one. ( I would never buy one) If you want to try to fix it, I would check the check valves first. Take them out and see if some are broken or not sealing properly. There is a valve kit available.
The other likely problem is your unloader valve. If the seal is shot or the valve stuck open the pump will not build pressure.

My pressure washer stops running when i let off the trigger


hi there sal rick85

sounds like the unloader valve is not working or stuck closed , check the setting of the unloader valve may be set too high, the unloader must open in odrder to cycle water back to inlet side of pump - if not builds up heaps of pressure , stalls the engine - service the un loader valves on the pressure head

take look and let me know - what brand your blaster unit is i know its honda but what pump
comet - axd, lw/zw, - in line or axial cam

in the mean time here is good web site on power washers

AT FIRST WITH JUST THE WATER ON (PUMP OFF) I SQUEEZE THE WAND AND WATER COMES OUT ABOUT 3 FT. THEN WHEN I START THE PUMP AND SQUEZE THE WAND ONE STRONG SQUIRT COMES OUT THEN GOES BACK TO ABOUT 4 FT. NOT...


Hi, W/D here.
Leave the water on, and hold the trigger down for about 5 minutes to get all of the air out of the system. Letting off of the trigger occasionally and then opening it up will help displace any air in the chambers. While still holding the trigger down, start the washer. Should put up your desired pressure.
Best regards, --W/D--

I live in the naples fl. area .--where can i get my comet axd 3030 pump rebuilt and what is the cost?


These AXD pumps usually do not require a rebuilding process. What happens is the unloader / bypass valve gets stuck and you do not get any output pressure. What you can do is tip you pressure washer so that the input and output fittings are vertical and actually dump oil into the water supply hole. (3 oz at least) Slowly pull the recoil (ign off) and add a bit more oil and let it sit overnight. Then the next day once again pull the recoil through and let it sit another 10 minutes. Then connect all hoses (Purge the air in the garden hose) BEFORE connecting the main water supply and start the unit then running at MAX SPEED rapidly fan the wand trigger. What your doing is cycling the unloader valve. Do not do this for more than 2 minutes if the pressure does not suddenly start. IF the pressure builds continue at lease another 30 rapid cycles of the wand trigger.
I lost count on just how many pressure washers I have brought back to a good working service life by just doing the above. I do know it is a substantial number.
Give this a try before you go off on the need to rebuild the pump avenue.

What type of oil goes in a comet axd 3020 pressure washer pump?


You should use what the pump manufacturer recommends. Typically a 30wt non-detergent (non foaming) oil. Do not over fill. If there is a sight glass half way is normal. Or if it has a dip stick follow the mark there.

Foaming in pump oil window


I dont know which comet pump you have, but it is just easier to get a new pump from one of the pressure washer companies on the internet and they sell them on ebay. You can also probably get a better pump that will fit your engine as well. Also, have you tried just changing the oil and not fill it too full? On my 5000 lb washer, if i fill the oil too high when I change the oil, it will foam some. Hope this helps you, Rick
