Type- KEW Hobby waterblaster- requires addition pump oil. What kind of oil does it take.


Pump oil is 20 or 30 weight non-detergent motor oil. SAE20 or SAE30.
Pump oil fills about half-way up inside pump. Look for fill mark or read manual.
Of course you saved the manual, right? So you're not in line at fixya wanting a manual for some product made 5 years ago in China by a company that doesn't post manuals. Or manual is available in Italian and German with pages missing.
If this is gasoline-powered engine, do not turn machine upside down to drain oil or 10-W30 engine oil will drain into carburetor.

Kew Alto Force X-TRA cold water supply pressure sensor problem


Have the same p-washer (5-6 years old) and the same problem. Opened it and the pressure switch is the crook. A plastic pin has an inner and an outer spring on it (two consentric springs). The smaller inner spring is completely rusted away so the switch no longer operates correctly. Obviously the spring was of a too low quality. The service office say a new switch cost around 400NOK (50 euros) - so the washer is too expensive to mend. But I will try to get it working without the inner spring. Doubt if I succed. So will have to dump the washer.

I have a Kew Hobby 80. The output from the lance is not constant but pulsates.


Could be the input water pressure is not sufficient. There is a pressure valve inside the machine that will cut off the motor if input pressure is too low or non existent.

Try a different source for the water input.

Alto Kew pressure washer stopped working!


Hi Steve, In 3 years of repairing pressure washers I've only ever seen one of these, and am having a hard time remembering much about it, except that it was really awkward to work on! Strictly speaking, many small pressure washer repairs are uneconomical, because the labour time involved costs almost as much as the machine is worth. However, a "motor won't go" problem does narrow things down a lot. To state the obvious, we're looking at an electrical problem. The challenge is to find the cause! Did the motor stop while you were using it, or did it fail to start when you got it out of storage? If you are in the UK you should first check the plug-top fuse and the full length of the flex for any damage. If you have any kind of low-voltage electrical testing device, you can test for continuity between the live and neutral pins of the plug (with the machine switched on you should have continuity). If you have no continuity (and the fuse is OK) there may be a problem with the switch on the machine. Unfortunately, unless you are a really keen DIY person, there's not much you can do by way of self-help. A repair centre may be able to help you, but beware of costs spiraling beyond the cost of a replacement machine. I hope this will be helpful - if you can give more details I'll help further if I can. Good luck!

Found this presure washer in the basement and want to know if it works the motor runs when you plug it in but does not build press. The brand is kew hobby


This may be as simple as still having air in the system.  Connect the machine to the water supply (but not the electric) then squeeze the trigger and allow water to flow for at least 60 seconds.  During that process, hold the nozzle outlet under the surface of water in a bucket so you can see when air stops coming out.  Keep going until you're sure there's no more air in the system.  Then switch it on.  If it still does not come up to pressure you'd probably be wise to abandon it.
