Question about McCulloch Garden

Open Question

I have a McCulloch FH160B power washer and it no longer builds up pressure. I haven't used this very much at all. I tore it apart and cleaned everything I could find. When i pull the trigger for the spray nozzle, I get line water pressure. When I release the trigger, the power washer sounds like it starts to build up pressure. When this was working correctly, the pump would shut off when the trigger was released. Any suggestions?

SOURCE: 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.

Sounds like the unloader is not working correctly. Try replacing it and see what happens.

These units have pressure valves that automatically turn off the pump once the pressure is high enough. The pressure switches do fail and sometimes stick and act as you've described.

How to get soap to come out of dispenser of mcculloch power washer fhh 18a


Most people make the mistake of using a high pressure tip on their power washer while trying to get the soap dispenser to work. These tips are usually red, green, white or yellow and they cause too much back pressure at the dispenser for it to work. You need to use the soap tip, they're usually black, for the dispenser to work properly.

Trigger don't release


I have a hose and gun that fits the McCulloch FHH18A that I no longer need as I had to buy a complete universal hose/gun and wand unit since I had broke the wand and the replacement wand was no longer available. If you are interested in it, email me at burmakow@nwciowa.edu and we can figure out a price.

McCulloch FH160G Pressure washer has a weak spray. Unable to locate my owners manual.

No soap comming out of my power washer


Hi,

I had the same problem on the same unit. All you need to do is pull out the front tip of the gun nozzle to engage the soap dispenser. It's as simple as that, but because there is only a tiny footprint mention of this in the instructions, it turns out to be a long drawn out problem for many of us. Hope this helps.
