How to set a high pressure unloader valve on a FAIP 1500 H120 washer


Are you talking about the electric switch that shuts off the motor when the trigger is released?
If so, there is an arm that comes out of the high pressure side of the manifold and is connected to a spring loaded piston. The piston extends under high pressure (spray trigger released) and retracts when spraying. At the opposite end of the arm is an allen screw and locknut. The allen screw bears on the microswitch arm to control the electric motor. When properly adjusted, the motor should turn off when the trigger is released. If it doesn't, loosen the locknut and adjust the allen screw slightly outwards toward the switch. Pull the trigger a few times and verify the motor starts up and shuts down when you release it. Tighten locknut.
Hope that helps.

Pressure washer starts fine and sprays fine but will not continue to idle after nozzle trigger is let go. Have to have trigger pulled to start & cannot let go without unit stopping.


The pressure unloader us usually the first part/s that fail. An unloader can fail resulting in no or very low pressure or good pressure, however will not unload when trigger is released and stall the motor. Look at breakdown for your pump and determine if unloader parts are available and reasonable. If too costly to replace these parts then install an ez start valve to help start engine and tie back wand handle to deal with unloader problem (workaround). Ez start valve can be seen here:
http://www.cmcpwe.com/accessorystartvalve.html

When not in use, store washer with oil in pump to displace the water. The oil will help lube internal parts and possibly cause the unloader to begin working (if stuck due to debris/rust). You can find a gizmo to help you feed oil into pump on ebay /other web locations. Good luck with your repair.

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.

Pulsating when idle


The motor doesn't pulsate when you are spraying and pulsattes when not spraying is normal otherwise the pressure will just keep building and burn out the pump. However, if you are not using the sprayer right away then the unit should be shut off until your ready to start again.
I hope the answer is helpful, please rate if the answer has helped in any way. Good Luck and have a great weekend.

Lack of pressure after releasing the trigger on the wand


Hello awcockerill:
This sounds like the bypass (unloader) valve is sticking. Here is a diagram of your machine's pump. On page 2.4 see part #1. The top of this assembly is a black plastic cover. Remove all of assembly # 1 carefully. Under that is part #8. This is the bypass valve. You need to pull this out, check that the o-rings are not bent, worn or damaged, then lube it good with a VERY VERY good waterproof grease. Re-assemble it and all should be well. The part numbers are on the diagram but where to get them depends on were you live. Karcher web site may give you a number to call. Good luck.

When I release the trigger it "idles" fine, but when I re-engage


I have seen this problem alot and it can normally be rectified by clean out your unloader/bypass valve the orings on this valve get damaged as jerr said by leaving hoses and trigger pressurised, the easiest way to test if it is a faulty unloader valve is to do as you say it does and when it is on its weak stream turn your nozzle to detergent or low pressure mode then back to high pressure it should kick the pump back in...

If you do not have low pressure(chemical applicator) on your nozzle you may be able to remove the front half of your lance to achive the same result...

Kind Regards

Powermate pressure washer Model PW0872400


pressure washers has this pressure switches where in as you press on the trigger, the washer works and if you release it, the pressure would build up high and it would trip this switch to turn off the motor or deflect the water to the by pass hose ( if the motor is not stopping) then as you press again the trigger, water should come out of the gun again but would not,

i have encountered the problem is in the pressure switch, even the pressure went down, sometimes it wont close the contact then the motor wont run ,

if the motor is continously running, then the trigger switch is the problem, the pressure excerted on the switch is so high that even if you press it , it won't open up to release the water.

what i can suggest is to tie the trigger in the gun so that it is always pressed and then just unplug the unit if you want to stop using it. it is an inconvenience but it will work.

or, open the gun and see if you can figure out why pressing the trigger would not open the switch.

another option is you can lower the pressure of the washer if it has an adjustable pessure controller. by lowering the pressure might open the switch when ever you press the trigger.

i hopw i was able to fix...

good luck,
