Question about Black & Decker Garden

Open Question

Hi- I have a Simoniz S1600 pressure washer. Usually when I start it, the motor kicks in to build up pressure. Now it won't kick in no matter what I do. A small stream of water will come out but there is no pressure. There are no reset buttons on the exterior of the machine. Thanks so much.

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?

Comressor won't kick on by itself


There should be a pressure relief valve for the discharge line of the compressor. It could be under the cover of the pressure switch. With hi pressure trapped on the piston, the motor won't start.

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.

I have an Ingersoll Rand T30 10 HP compressor that runs OK and will bulid up 150 psi without any problems. But when the pressure drops enough to kick the pressure switch, the motor won't start. just tries...


When the compressor comes up to pressure and kicks off, you should normally hear a gasp of air escaping. That gasp is the release of pressure from the compressor itself - not the tank, and it is supposed to get released so that the compressor can restart without being preloaded with compressed air. My guess is that the gasp is not happening. It is probably some debris or a gummy mechanism. The mechanism is supposed to be triggered by the same mechanism that shuts off the motor.

I have 5.5hp briggs&stratton pressure washer Simoniz S2350. Would you know the PSI for this item?


Every 5.5 HP pressure washer runs between 2,200 and 2,500 PSI with most set by the manufacturer at 2,400 PSI with 3,600 RPM of engine speed.

Due to the power required to produce more than 2,500 PSI a 5.5 HP engine would lose engine speed as it can not produce enough power for the higher PSI output. It is a matter of hydraulics vs input power.

Any gas pressure washer will produce lower pressure with lower engine RPM. Looking at S2350 as your model number yours may be set to 2,350 PSI by Simoniz.

Thanks for using FixYa.
