Is your inlet water supply open fully, it will pump in spurts if the pump is not receiving enough inlet water volume and pressure.

Pressure waaher has short burst then nothing

this often happens when the compressor is failing to maintain pressure. It could be a regulator not registering correct. It could also have to do with the water supply. Many power washers have a sensor to detect amount of water, and if is does not sense enough it shuts the compressor of to keep the motor from burning up

Why would it burst a pipe after getting new water pump fitted?

water pipes burst from 2 reasons
one is that they are too old and have cracked the binding inside the rubber
two is excessive pressure from a head gasket/cracked head problem
if the hoses are larger than the clamp, they will burst
if they have been removed incorrectly the fabric in the rubber gets torn and they will burst
if the pump was fitted incorrectly , then high pressure from overheating will make them burst

Why does my pressure hose burst when I use a turbo nozzle

Turbo heads are pressure rated for different pressure washers, your turbo head is most likely rated bellow the maximum pressure of your washer which in turn causes a pressure build up in the hose and it's eventual failure.

Install replacement high pressure hose

If you are replacing the hose because it burst you might contact the manufacturer. Mine, of a different brand, burst and they sent me a new pressure washer saying that it was very difficult to install a new hose. They had a lot of problems with hoses from China.

Craftsman 580 767101 when i squeeze the handle pressure it loses pressure. If i squeeze i get a burst of pressure, it then fades out. Relese the handle and squezze i get another burst

Sounds like the inlet water source may be blocked. When you hold the trigger open, water should flow freely. If this is not the problem, it may be that the pump seals are going bad.

Weak Pressure. I have the power washer running for a few minutes, then I go to pull the trigger on the wand and I only get about 1-2 seconds of full force pressure. The machine is still running (not as...

Check for a clog.

take the hose off the washer pump and start it. if you have good water pressure then you may have something on the hose or the wand. I had a lizard in mine that caused that problem before.

Low presure

sometimes the water pressure from the house is insufficient, when it happened to me it would run weird. The water would come out in spurts because little water would come out of the water hose. You could try and lower the pressure on the machine to compensate for the lack of pressure going in, that's all I can think of.

Keep geting F and H blinking on the screen

you could have a water valve problem,no water to machine,i've seen new water lines with shut offs built into the line that fail,put on regular burst proof water lines and the washer is fine, or a problem with the pressure switch located on right side of washer,take off the top of washer,you'll see a clear line going to the pressure switch,gently blow into the line and listen for a click,if it clicks the switch is ok, the last duet i worked on had same problem,just taking off the line from the pressure switch somehow reset the pressure switch and that's all i had to do it ran fine after that,also there is a flow meter located in between the water valve and the dispenser that can do this,hope this helps
