Question about Vacuums

My Simoniz S1900 pressure washer "pulses" on and off when I turn it on and pull the trigger. I have purged the pump of air as pre the company's video but nothing helps.

One thing to check is that the hose connected to it isn't collapsing and cutting off the water supply. Make sure plenty of water pressure and volume at hose as well.

    Turn the unit on and remove the wand. Pull the trigger of the gun.

    If the off/on pulsing contnues you have a problem with the machine.

    If the pulsing stops the wand is probably plugged with a bit of dirt.

    Had the same problem myself and traced problem to wand but still trying to figure out how to clean the obstruction out of the wand.

Won't spray water and cleaner from the machine


Ensure you have water in tank and solution (or water in solution tank). When you start the vacuum up, the pump starts to prime itself. If you have air in the system, it takes a little longer to prime. Allow the vacuum to run for 1 minute before attempting to pull the trigger. Then pull the trigger.

If this doesn't work, you'll need to open the unit up and check the hoses for any clogs, and next test the pump to see if it is functioning.

Bissell 9200 upright carpet cleaner does not spray water. Could it be the pump or solenoid, or both?


It could be the pump. You can open it up and see if the pump is working by taking the pump input tube and inserting it into a bowl of water. Pull the trigger and see if water is leaving at the pump output.

However, ensure you have the simpler things covered first:

Losing prime on the pump


When the pump loses prime, you just turn of the unit, turn it back on and wait about a minute before pulling the trigger. The pump establishes prime when you first turn it on, but you need to wait long enough to let it get all the air out.
