Question about Garden

Open Question

Hi- I have a Simoniz S1600 pressure washer and usually when I first turn it on, the motor turns on to build up pressure. Now the motor won't kick in no matter what I do. Water still comes out of the gun as a small stream but there is no pressure. There are no reset buttons on the exterior of the machine. Thanks!

SOURCE: pressure washer has no pressure

Try and back flush the washer..Take spay nozzle off washer and back flush with hose...If any kind of sand or deposits get into the Pump it will hold pressure valve open not letting it build pressure.after back flushing hook back up washer and before you put spar nozzle back on or start washer turn water on and make sure all air is out of washer..hook spray nozzle back up and hold it open with washer still off.when you see that there is no more air coming out of washer start it and you should have pressure.Hope this helps you and have a great day!!

SOURCE: Pressure Washer quit running

I have owned four of those units. Every one of them did what you are experiencing or just wouldn't give me any pressure after only a few uses. The company was certainly no help. I gave up after four and bought a heavier gas model from Lowes. Hope this info helps.

SOURCE: One day it was working fine the next day

It could be the thermal switch in the motor but that cannot be reset. If you used it with an extension cord, this has blown the thermal reset in the motor. You now have a blue boar anchor. If you haven't used an extension cord then it is probably the bypass valve switch. When you use your washer, then let the trigger shut off, this valve shuts off the motor. When you open the machine, you can tell where this valve is because it somehow has a small switch mechanism attached to it.This valve needs to be pulled out and greased with a good waterproof grease. If you can tell me the serial number, or e-mail it to me at firehead@rogers.com, I may be able to get you a schematic.

There are no schematics available because the manufacturer doesn't sell parts for the gun. The spring usually goes right into the end of the hose, then the little bullet like valve follows. Did you know you can buy a new gun for about $22.00 Canadian?

Why does the machines cct breaker trip on a simoniz S2000 XE02 pressure washer


It could trip for a number of reasons. If you turn it on and nothing happens for a few seconds or instantly trips the motor is overloaded or burned up or a motor capacitor is bad. If the machine turns on and sprays if you hold the trigger open while you turn it on and then trips when you let go of the trigger you probably have a problem with the cut off switch . The circuit breaker might be too small for the load of your machine. The extension cord might be too light duty and causing the breaker to trip.

Motor turns over but seems to be a lot of pressure on it . it kicks back hard


Make sure you are holding the trigger and water is spraying while you are trying to start it, otherwise pressure will build up in the pump and it will kick back.

Where is the pressure switch located on a simoniz 1600 electric power washer?


There is a pressure switch to cut the motor once target pressure is reached. I.e. when the nozzle is closed. It's a black cheap plastic thing, right in front of the pump body. It has a white plastic lever to trip the switch. It was sticking intermittently on mine. the simoniz 1600 is quite a cheap peace of ****, needs fiddling around every time I use it

No pressure on simoniz gas pressure washer


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.
