Simoniz s1900 electric power washer with no water pressure

Hi: I have a Simoniz electric washer that worked well for about 3 months and then all of a sudden lost pressure . The unit still starts and sounds the same but upon squeezing the trigger of the gun all that comes out is standard hose pressure ( say about 40 psi) . I called Simoniz and they determined the fix as being a faulty fitting where the garden hose connects to the machine. They mailed this out to me last week but i have yet to receive. I'm just doing a little proactive research as i can't see that part as being the woes to this machines problem.

Is anyone familiar with this problem , i'm reading about alot of issues with these Simoniz power washers.

Power loss

950 watt is very small. Most electrical appliances need 1000watt to operate so if the vacuum cleaner is 1000watt then the gen set will trip. Check the drill as it is possibly 850watt which the gen set can handle. It all has to do with the wattage of the equipment you intend to run from the gen set

1. Check the power supply.

2. Check the water supply.

3. Inspect all hoses.

4. Take a look at the inlet valve.

5. Check the intake filter.

6. Inspect the nozzle.

7. Inspect the gun.

8. Check the power pump, unloader, regulator, and other valves.

Diagnosis takes this order because the things at the top of the list are more common and much easier to check. That's the good news when it comes to looking over your pressure washer. Most pressure and other performance issues will be caused by something small and simple like a clogged nozzle.

Even components like regulators and unloaders are fairly simple to replace, and can be done by confident workmen an homeowners. Once problems boil down to a power pump issue, it's usually best that the pressure washer see a shop.

Because the problems of and solutions to symptoms are so varied, we just list them below without any particular order, although we list the most common symptoms and causes first.

The bypass valve in the pump has stuck. Very common problem.

The valve shuts off additional water input once the pressure builds up.

The O rings in the valve deteriorate and stick in the position so new water can't get to the pump.

Rebuild the valve with new O rings and it will be good as new. Clean the bore of the valve when you have it apart.

Coleman Pressure Washer gets no pressure even when running.

It sounds like your pressure regulator or back flow preventer is stuck closed either by corrosion or trash . Try tapping it and see it will open. If this does not work you can try rebuilding or replacing it.
