The pump for the tank is not working correctly.
Often times over the winter the washer in the pump dries out and will not pump air then.
Try taking the top off or just spray some water down into the pump... let this sit for a bit and then try to work the pump... also make sure that the check valve at the bottom is seating will not pump air is that is not seating...
If water does not get the pump working sometimes Vaseline will soften the diaphragm and the seals up so that they will work get the pump apart you will need to just pull it apart very hard or the top will twist off...

Any more questions or comments, please get back to me..

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.

I just got a Dewalt DXPW 3425 do they have a less powerful spray tip than 40*. Or is there a way to adjust the spray to a much lower output for more delicate deck woods? Thanks Mike in Oregon

Tips are described with two numbers. There is the "size" in gallons per minute and the spray angle in degrees. If you increase the nozzle size the pump sprays the same amount of water ( they are positive displacement pumps) but it will come out at a lower pressure. If you increase the spray angle you decrease the impact pressure over a wider area. A zero degree nozzle has the greatest impact on the smallest area. The largest spray angle is typically 40 degrees and has the "softest" impact. There are lots of nozzle charts online that will tell you the pressure output at various sizes and gallons per minute. Usually paint supply stores have nozzles and can help you get the size you want.
Another way to decrease the power of the spray tip is to simply hold it farther away from the target. The pressure decreases by the square of the distance. ( moving the tip away a little decreases the impact a lot) Experience helps with this technique. Start with the tip a foot away and slowly move it closer to get the maximum cleaning with the minimum damage to the deck. You have to be careful or a momentary lapse of concentration can lift the grain of the wood in a second. The nozzle size is much more fail safe.
Going to a larger nozzle size and wider angle is better than adjusting the bypass valve.

Karcher puzzi 100 not spraying

blocked pressure hose or blocked nozzle at the end of the wand
it is controlled by a pressure relief regulator which quite often plays up.

GX 08 spray gun problem

drain your system of pressure. remove your air cap and nozzle from the gun. slowly increase fluid pressure till it comes out of gun. this will clean out debri from gun. reduce pressure so you don't wast anymore fluid.
clean nozzle properly / completely
clean aircap. properly / completely
inspect needle tip for abnormal wear.
if cleaned properly you will find your gun works much better.

Craftsman Pressure washer will not spray

your not missing anything, check the pump, they tend to go bad over time and may need replacing. The pump provides the pressure as well as the suction for the whole process, pulling water from the hose or tank and pushing it forcefully through the pressure washer line. If the motor is running and you have the water going through the line and to the pump, and no water is coming out, my guess would be the pump.

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!!

70,000 BTU Ready Heater

If...the air pump pressure is right, the ignitor glows, the fuel is hitting the ignitor, then the unit will have combustion......unless.....
  1. there is an air leak on the pressure line
  2. there is a vacuum leak on the fuel line
  3. there is a leak at the nozzle adapter
  4. there is a restriction either in the nozzle or the fuel filter
  5. the nozzle is worn and is spraying fuel rather than fogging fuel
