SOURCE: pressure washer stalls

Pressure washers work under very dirty conditions, no wonder they encounter engine problems. Here are a few pointers from a former pressure pump tech. The unloader is a source of engine overloading however this can easily be checked with a pressure guage attached to the gun with a tee fitting having the guage and the normal tip used for the unit. The pressure should never rise over rated pressure. The pressure should drop considrably when trigger is released. The life of the pump and engine can be increased by setting max pressure to 75% of rating. Most engine problems are from following conditions:
Leaking or misadjusted valves; clogged muffer /spark arrester; weak spark coil that is about to fail completely; kill switch/oil sensor wiring and or sensor mal function; gas cap not venting properly causing vacuum in tank and wet or dirty air filter.
All these problems easy to check, fastest repair is to disconnect oil sensor wire to check oil safety system. Then temp replace coil with known good coil. Loosen muffer bolts to check for clogged muffler. Temp run engine without gas cap to check for vacuum. Finally if everything fails, run the engine with carb cleaner spraying directly into the intake. If the engine continues to run with carb cleaner then the problem is fuel delivey and faulty carb. enjoy

SOURCE: what oil, how much oil, and how change oil on pump of ry80030a

The RY80030 Pressure washer has a Faip pump on it. There is no drain plug and you do not change the oil in it. The pump only holds 4.5 ounces of oil and the pump only has a life expectancy of between 30 and 50 hours. If for some reason The oil gets drained, remove the pump from the motor and set it on a bench standing up on end. Remove the allen bolts holding the water and oil sides of the pump together.Be carful as the piston springs are under load. fill the pump 3/4 of the way full and replace the head. there is a smoke stack on the pump but it is simply a breather not an oil fill.


If this helps please rate this post. Bill the Tech

SOURCE: how to change oil in a pressure washer

From the manual CleanShot 2050 Briggs and Stratton

Change Pump Oil
1. Drain engine oil and fuel from pressure washer
2. Use an 8 mm allen wrench to remove black pump oil cap between high pressure outlet and garden hose inlet.
3. Tiltl pressure washer to drain oil into an approved container until it drips slowly from pump.
4.Tilt pressure washer in opposite direction and empty premeasured pump oil bottle into same opening (a small funnel may be helpful) [THIS IS WHAT THE MANUAL SAYS-NOT CLEARLY WRITTEN IN MY OPINION OR WRITTEN BY SOMEONE FOR WHOM ENGLISH IS A SECOND LANGUAGE]
5. Install black pump oil cap and tighten firmly.
6. Set pressure washer in upright position. Add fuel and engine oil.

From the engine manual use synthetic 5w-30, 10w-30 from -20 degrees F to temperature of 100 degrees F.
Change oil after 5 hours of operation initially. Before tipping to drain oil, remove fuel from fuel tank by running until tank is empty. Remove oil cap and dipstick and tip engine. Keep spark plug side up. Or remove drain plug from the bottom of pressure washer with a ratchet and square extension and drain oil from bottom. (fuel does not have to be removed)

SOURCE: Where is the pressure switch located on a simoniz

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

Motor runs but not alot of pressure


Make sure you re-leave any stored water pressure before performing a repair! (UNPLUG THE HYDRO OR DISCONNECT THE SPARK PLUG) SAFETY FIRST Valve 200344GS Order now for same day shipping 365 day return policy... If you can find these parts within the pump body they are probably being held open by calcification debris. http://www.simoniz.ca/en/images/support_buttons/general_pw_troubleshooting.pdf

Where do you add the pump oil and where do you add the engine oil on husqvarna 020490 pressure washer. I see a yellow oil plug on both sides.


Hi Andy.
The yellow oil plugs are for the motor. At the bottom of the crankcase you should also see a screwed drain plug. Remove this, allow the oil to run out, replace and refill with a good quality multigrade engine oil.
The water pump oil may or may not be accessible, depends on the pump manufacturer. If you have a sight glass, you will be able to drain and change the oil. You will also have a filler cap with a breather.
Use a good quality tractor transmission oil or oil supplied by the manufacturer. DO NOT USE ENGINE OIL IN THE PUMP TRANSMISSION. It may aerate and overflow.
In normal use a pressure washer should not use either engine oil or pump oil between servicing. Excessive engine oil consumption indicates a tired motor. Oil consumption by the water pump is a big indicator of overuse.

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.

Not getting any pressure at nozzle.


Can anyone Solve this? My simoniz S2500 gas powered pressure washer has low pressure coming right from the outlet. It used to be high pressure until now.. I think it has something to do with the pump and if so, is there anything I can do to repair this problem? The screen is good; water comes out of the hose good, wand is ok......Just that lower pressure is at the wand even at high settings....It comes in a form of a spray in both modes......
