I have a SIMONIZ S2000 electric. I bought the unit about 8 weeks ago used it once. On the second use yesterday the unit didn't work as well, the pressure seemed only a bit better than hose pressure and soap did not dispense at any pressure. SO.... after much thought I turned the hose/tap pressure down so that I only got about 2-3 GPM instead of the typical 5-6GPM normally coming out of my hose....... it worked! Soap dispenses and spay is way better! It seems that if if the inlet hose pressure is high the pump doesn't work as well... go figure.

Kranzle electric washer will not suck up soap


Hi, if it has a chemical injector on the machine then the pressure at the lance will have to be lowered for it to pull in soap. it works on a similar principle to how carburetors on cars pull in fuel, bernouli principle. high pressure at one side of an orifice going to low pressure at the other side which causes a negative pressure ( vacuum) which should pull in the soap. there should be a non return valve at the orifice (hole) which prevents the water back feeding into the soap container, it is quite common for this valve to get stuck, it is just a ball, spring and o ring , and the ball sticks to the o ring. if it is this system then take the soap pick up pipe off the injector and just push the ball off it's seat with a bit of wire.

If it is a high pressure soap system then that is different, but they usually work with an injector in my experience.

try taking the high pressure hose off the front off the machine and running it, if it has an injector on it it should pull in plenty off soap.

hope this helps ,
andy

Chemical wont siphon


In most cases this is because you have a high pressure tip, the red, white, yellow or green tip, on the wand. The detergent system will only work if you have the black, soap tip on the wand. With a pressure tip on the wand, there is too much back pressure for the syphon system to work. If you are using the soap tip, check the feed tube for the detergent for blockage, especially at the pickup filter and where it attaches to the water line.

I was able to use soap all last season, this year, i cannot get it to come thru, i know all about the low pressure deal, it seems to be clogged/ is there any way to specifically clean it where it enters...


Soap injectors are easily clogged or will not work because of design (air leaks will prevent chem from entering if chemical has to be drawn uphill) . They work with siphon action and will only work with very little pressure at the tip but good volume. If your siphon valve has the ball in place, however is missing the fine spring that holds the ball against seat (fine spring holds ball aginst intake fitting), the soap will not be sucked into stream. If ball and spring are in place, try elevating the soap container higher than the opening of the port (gravity feed may help to feed soap into system) . May be better to use an aftermarket downstream injector valve sold on ebay or many outlets. Cost about $20 but work better and are adjustable to save on soap. Search ebay for "Chemical Injector For Pressure Washers" or google "Pressure Washer Downstream Chemical Injectors" Various prices but lower price units work better than factory. Good luck

The powder will not dispense. Water is getting in because the powder is wet and clumpy but is still left in the dispenser.


I suggest you remove the soap dispenser drawer and thoroughly clean it, ensuring that the outlet at the back of the drawer where the water and soap feed into the machine are completely clear of any soap buildup.

Before you replace the drawer, ensure that the water feed into the drawer (this is a pipe or tube above the drawer slot) is not clogged with soap.

Paper is not feeding properly. Only feeds on second try with a push with my fingernail. Has been getting worse over time. 722c.


The feed rollers are dirty. There are professional cleaners you can buy specifically designed to clean printer rollers but if you were to use a paper towel with a drop of soap and water it would clean off all the paper dust that has accumulated on the rollers. Use a second paper towel with just water to remove any residual soap.

My printer keeps jamming


1. Check any small pieces of paper, sometimes the back will come off
2. If it feeds sometimes but dog ears(bends the corner), there more likely something caught inside, use can air to blow inside lower feed rollers
3. If it does not feed or feeds and jams then take dish soap and water and apply it to a rag and clean any roller you can see make sure you let it dry before trying to print ONLY dish soap and water.
4. If this fails then there is something wrong with the feed mechanism example clutch or spring

Clean the roller that feeds the paper (located at the right side inside the feeding tray).
