Dismount the bolt that is use to connect the soap line.Turn on the washer and test if you fill if is "suction" intake air.Sometimes it becomes clogged so see if anything is clogging the suction .Is that not work the suction system is bad.

How do i prime the pump on the soaper or chemical dispenser on my troy built 2550 psi pressure washer?


There is no need to prime. But you do need to use the black spray nozzle to get soap to siphon out.
if that doesn't solve the problem let me know

How do i prime my troy built 2550 psi pump for the soap?


You have to use a low pressure nozzle ( usually black with very large spray opening) With the low pressure nozzle siphons your detergent in with the spray water . If you are using a high pressure nozzle the soap will not prime.

Why the water is running from detergent siphoning tube?


The siphoning mechanism on almost all power washers use "The Venturi" effect to suck up the detergent. Basically, there's no pump...the force of the water passing the siphon hose causes a vacuum which draws the detergent up the tube. There's a small ball that is supposed to fall and block the tube when the trigger is released so it sounds like it got jammed up in there somehow. You could it apart and free it up but I would recommend just purchasing an external detergent dispenser. Home Depot carries them for about 15 bucks. They allow you to use soap with high pressure and bypass the always problematic siphon system.

HI. My Comet FWS 4030 works just great and i am very pleased. what i DON'T know is how to draw up soap to mix with the water. there is a big red knob, and another brass adjustment but i have no manual...


The red knob is to regulate the pressure. The soap siphon should be hooked up to the pump at the high pressure outlet and the pressure hose hooks up to it. You do just have to drop the tube into your soap solution but I recommend you dilute the soap down as the siphon usually sucks the solution up fairly fast. The trick to making it work is to use the low pressure, soap tip on your wand. They are black and help fan the water/soap out but give no resistance to the water coming out. If you are using a high pressure tip, usually red, yellow, white or green, there will be too much back pressure in the hose and siphon attachment for it to **** up any solution.

My pressure washer will not pump the soap, when you take the pipe loose from the handle it pumps out when you hook it back to the handle it quites pumping


Most pressure washers introduce soap into stream of water by the siphon method. In order for the system to siphon the pressure tip must be changed to one with large opening. Once the large tip is install, the fast moving low pressure water thru the hose and wand will draw-in soap. With the pressure tip installed soap will not be drawn-in. To spray soap and water under pressure use a large container (larger the better like clean 30 gallon trashcan) and fill with clean water and measure of liquid detergent. Use short water hose from with-in container and connect to pressure washer as normal. Keep checking water level so that washer will not run dry. Most pressue washers will **** water in quickly from container, however you can pre-fill the water hose with water to speed things up. Trailer mounted pressure washers use a very large container for water. You can estimate how log the pressure washer will take to use the water by checking the gallons per minute rating of your machine. Good luck

John deere 3800psi pressure washer will not siphon detergent. the water end does fine but cannot get any soap


The only way the washer will draw soap into the line is with either the black tip installed or with no tip in wand at all.There is a ball and spring inside of the pipe that the siphon hose hooks to so when you use the washer with alot or even a little pressure the ball is forced up and blockes off the soap inlet port.So if you use it with no tip in the inlet port is open cause the ball isnt being forced up by back pressure.I hope this makes sense.

Troy-bilt 2200 psi pressure washer


I have a Troybilt Model 2200 PSI Pressure Washer in which I have used only 2 times in the past 2 1/2 years. Went to use it this past weekend and the pump in not working. Water shoots out of the side. I bought this brand and model as I thought Troybilt was suppose to be so good. Went back to where it was purchased and had no success but to say I could buy another pump or take it in to be repaired. I believe that this power washer should be replaced at no charge. 2 uses does not constitute a few hundreds of dollars.
Have you to heard anything concerning pump problems on this particular model? Thanks for any advice. .

Ryobi 3000 psi pressure washer detergent injector


Most detergent injectors work by the venturi system. That is that the detergent is drawn into the stream by the forward flow of the water thru a very narrow port after the water passes thru the pump. This system works best when the pressure at the tip of the wand is low. Trying using a very large tip to draw in and apply the detergent, then remove injector and rinse with high pressure. Not good for the pump but to apply soap reliably under high pressure the soap needs to be injected through the intake of the pump. enjoy

inlet valve connected to water inlet is stopped-up. Unscrew it, take a safety pin run through valve then take the pin and push through valve connected to pump. should do the trick. (the valve the suction hose for the soap is connect to)
