When the trigger is pushed, the engine is supposed to rev up to increase the pressure. So from the description, is sounds like the idle speed is simply set to low and it dies. So just set the idle speed higher. You could set it as high as pulling the trigger does if you want, but that would waste gas.

I switch the pressure washer on motor starts pressure builds up motor stops. OK pull the trigger on the lance the moter starts sounds different water pressure low. Release trigger motor still runs.


It isnt very clear your explanation of the problem but what type washer do you have first? It sounds like you have a bad unloader or need a new variable nozzle tip. Can you explain in more clear detail. Thanks

Pump will not unload.


Hi if it stop when the trigger is pulled the issue is with the motor.
stopping is caused by , low revs on motor or low compression or poor spark, sometimes faulty carby.
change spark plug , adjust valve ( when valve has some slight side movment it is ok if up and down , it should be tighter (valves usually under side cover near top ) increase revs a little ( make sure revs dont get rough when running high) set max revs to when the engine still runs smoothly at max.

My bostitch N88RH is not firing nails


May occur when headvalve or driver is stuck (will usually make a pop or click when tigger is depressed), or tigger valve has failed or safety not actually touching trigger firing pin. Easy test, remove nails, remove trigger by pushing out 3mm roll pin or bolt to expose the firing pin. Pull back nail feeder and place the nose against piece of wood ~ depress trigger with very quick motion with finger. If it fires, reinstall trigger and adjust safety foot so that the firing pin is pushed all the way in. If does not fire, replace trigger valve (usually tva6) or remove trigger valve and replace the 3 orings on the inner plunger. If you hear a pop or click when you do test above, remove head and lube the headvalve orings with white grease or silicone paste.

Pressure washer stalls out when wand nozzle is released


common for not starting unless trigger engaged as you are turning the pump as well as engine creating pressure,as for stalling pump has unloader valve which is probably in need of grease(use good silicone grease)this allows water to ciculate when trigger released.

Mi TM 2700 pressure washer has no pressure.


With the water on, to the washer and the unit running. Does the water come out at the same rate before the trigger as at does after the trigger (run test with spray nozzle removed). Its not impossible for unloader valve to be bad but it usually is a dependable component. Make sure the unit has the air purged from it properly before start-up, make sure there are no obstructions before the trigger, then the nozzle. The unloader valve just puts the pump into by-pass until the trigger is depressed.
