Question about Campbell Hausfeld Garden

Open Question

I have an electric power washer model PW181000AV with about 25 hours on it. Got home from my winter retreat and used the power washer about 1/2 hour on the driveway. Everything worked fine. Went to complete the job the next day, and the motor would not power on. No sounds at all, like it wasn't getting electricity. Did the standard trouble shooting with ground fault and on my own electrical system. Been using the same outlet for all the time I have owned the power washer, so distance is not the problem. Are there any other trouble shooting procedures? Are there fuses that need replacing? Is it time to start tearing the unit apart?

SOURCE: Pressure Washer quit running

I have owned four of those units. Every one of them did what you are experiencing or just wouldn't give me any pressure after only a few uses. The company was certainly no help. I gave up after four and bought a heavier gas model from Lowes. Hope this info helps.

SOURCE: craftsman model 580.752020 electric pressure

turn off water and machine electrics.

remove high pressure hose from front of machine, this may be tight if there is still pressure in the system.
turn on water, when water comes out of machine hose outlet turn on machine. does the machine turn on and water flow increase, if so you probably have a blocked lance jet or trigger.

remove lance extension if fitted and fit hose back to machine, try again. If its ok then this proves you have a blocked lance jet, maybea poke about with some stiff wire will free the obstruction.

If this doesnt bring on the machine you probably have a jammed pressure switch on the pump.

this pressure switch turns on the pump when the trigger is pulled and switches the motor off when the trigger is released.

hope this helps.

Check for line voltage being present at the gas valve when it should fine but won't. If voltage is present but no gas flows you will need a new valve or else tap it and it will probably light. If no voltage is present you have an intermittent problem somewhere else in the heater which of course is the hardest issue to solve.

Good luck.

Hi,

The problem most likely would be in the defrost system. Many systems use a coil that heats to defrost the ice from the coils...
If a wire is broken or just a wire touching metal it would kick the outlet....

It also would take about three to four hours before the defrost would turn on....

So there is where I would be looking....maybe even disconnect the defrost for a day to see if it solves the problem or not....

SAFEGUARD YOUR HOME/BUSINESS WITH HONEYWELL'S WINTER WATCHMAN!


I recently discovered a great device, manufactured by Honeywell which is guaranteed to provide you with peace of mind whenever you are away from your home or business for more than a few hours. The Honeywell Winter Watchman UPC#: 085267870511, is a freeze warning alarm. Winter Watchman turns on a light alerting neighbors of a cold, low temperature condition. The model number is S483B1002 and the cost is in the $25.00 - $30.00 range.
This device plugs into a home outlet and then you plug a lamp into it. Make sure the lamp is on before you plug it into the Winter watchman. I use a lamp with a red globe and place it in the front window. Then I notify all of the helpful neighbors of my warning system so that can call me,or my designee, if they see the red light on. One of the features of the Winter Watchman is the fact that you can set the warning temperature, ten degrees below the setting on the thermostat would be a good setting in that the warning light would activate but your home wouldn't be in danger of an immediate freeze of the water pipes. OTHER modifications you might consider would be:
1. plug a spot light with a red bulb and a flasher unit into the Winter Watchman to get everyone's attention.
2. Use more that one Winter Watchman, perhaps on the other side of the house so that multiple neighbors can be alerted.

Cost of running window a/c unit


the total power used is 750 watts so multiply that by the number of hours in use say 60 hours a week
so 60 X 750 = 42000 or 4.2 kw hours X 4 cents per kw/h =418 cents or $4.18 per week X 4 weeks =$16.72
if you are a college student talk with a maths teacher and see if what I an calculating is correct but there is no way that the ac unit will cost $150.00 a month to run
you have to be careful here as to charge you for an ac unit , it has to be on a separate meter and I suspect that he is trying to get you to subsidise his electricity account outside of the rent costs which include power for the stove and hot water
as an example we run a 2.7kw ac for 12 hours or longer and the total household bill at 21 cents / kw hour ( we live in a country where the power is a major component of the household budget) is around $360.00 per month so I think that by comparison he is trying to rip you off
seek legal advice on the subject and if the rent payment includes electricity usage then he will need a separate meter to charge for the ac unit

Model JVM1442-001 What is wattage??


Wattage is a term used to express magnitude of power. A common use is to define the electrical power consumption of your home appliances (check the labels). For example, look at the back label of your kitchen toaster. It might read 120 volts, 60 Hz, and 1200 Watts. The 1200 Watts is the power drawn by your toaster when you turn it on. You can get that (Watts) information for any appliance or device that runs on electricity in your house. That's important because that is the unit of measure the electric company uses to charge you in your electricity bill. The electric company bills your electric consumption in kilowatt-hour (KWH). All they are doing is calculating the watts by the thousands (that's the meaning of "kilo") for every hour you have your appliance turned on. The amount 22 cents per kilowatt-hour is close to how much the electricity is costing today. Back to your toaster, 1200 watts is equal to 1.2kilowatts. If you are using your toaster every day for an hour your monthly consumption is 1.2KWH times 30 days equals to 36KWH. That means at 22 cents per kilowatt-hour your toaster is costing you (36KWH times 22cents/KWH) $7.92 on that month. That's the toaster alone, now you can repeat this exercise for every appliance or device using electricity in your home. Start by just doing an inventory of each, do a log with four columns: (1)Name of the appliance, (2)Location, (3)Watts, and (4)Watts/1000 (to get the number in KW). Make a fifth (5) column and call it Hours. Make a sixth (6) column and call it KWH. Then sit down to estimate (think) for how many hours per month each device is turned on. Now multiply each value of column 4 by its corresponding hour number in column 5. Write the results in column 6. Add the results of column 6 and voila! You just have a pretty good estimate of the total KWH consumed in your home in 30 days. Multiply that by $0.22 (or get the actual cost per KWH from your electric service company) and see how close you are to the actual billing. Hope there is no surprises.

There are the science and engineering definitions of the term watt you can research to come to the same conclusion hereto, I just laid a practical perspective.

Generac gp6500 will not stay running for more than 20 minutes.It shuts itself down then it is hard to restart and when it does start it will not continue to run. If I let it sit for 20 min. or more it will...


Here is support product lookup. Requires more specific numbers about your gp6500.

Shuts down automatically from oil shortage.

Above 40°F, use SAE 30. Below 40°F and down to 10°F, use 10W-30. Below 10°F, use synthetic 5W-30. Oil should be changed after the first 8 hours of operation and every 200 hours of run time thereafter.

You did winterize the machine? Leaving water in a powerwasher will freeze and damage the pump. It's a common happening, because people don't think of it or are not told by the maker.

Creda Night Store Heater model 79154


The dial on the wall with 1-24 on it, with the red pins, is the timeswitch to turn the heater on for night-rate hours (when the electricity is cheapest). Hour 1 is 1am --> Hour 24 is midnight.
Set the red pins to turn the heater on from 11PM (23) to 7am (7). The 'on' symbol is normally a '1', with off being '0'. Otherwise, on can be symbolised with a staright line with circles on it, while off is like a little barrier-arm part up.
As for the knobs on the heater, one is for the amount of heat which goes in (how much the heater 'charges'), and the other is for how much it lets out.
Genrally in winter you set the input (nite-store, second knob) to full (6), but in spring or autumn you may reduce this as required.
The other knob (room temp) is for how much heat comes out of ther heater. If you work during the day, you will want to conserver the stored heat in the heater.
Turn the room temp knob down to about 3 when you leave for work, and wind back up to 6 when you get home. This will stop all the heat leaving the heater during the day (and maybe use less power to recharge at night).
Good luck with the time switch. Check your night-rate hours on your power account.
