Pressure washers are either electric or gasoline powered. Electric pressure washers are low maintenance and quiet. These generally are for light duty. They are handy where you need to work on small confined area, however you need to run power to them and have a pressurized water source. Also the National Electrical Code and Underwriters Laboratories now require ground fault circuit interrupters (GFCIs) be use when operating an electric pressure washer. Gas models are recommended for tasks that require more power, such as paint prep, heavy vehicle cleaning, or cleaning heavily soiled concrete.. Gas models start with PSI of 1750 and go as high as 4000. They also offer more portability, as they are not limited by electric cords. Also some gas models can draw water from a source other than the garden hose, which allows you to work away from a water line. All gas models have 4-cycle engines and run on regular unleaded gas.

Xtreme pressure washer keeps cutting out.


If it is a gas powered machine and it cuts out when you release the spray gun trigger, it means that your unloader valve is stuck closed.
It would help to have more information about your machine and your problem. Gas or electric? Does it start up and run fine or cut out a few seconds after starting? Does it cut out when you release the trigger?
Does it cut out while spraying?

Only runs for a few minutes at a time


Is it gas or electric? Gas: Could be the carburetor float is stuck. Try beating on it. (#28 in the picture) DO NOT TAKE APART CARBURETOR! If that doesn't help might be something else. Electric: Was it left out in the cold in the winter with water still in it? 11_11_2013_3_29_07_pm.png

Pressure washer has lost pressure


Although this costs a little money, it covers most home gas/electric and industrial portable kerosine/diesel fired hot water pressure washers. Worth sharing...

Hi. I have a Briggs & Stratton 2800PSI gas pressure washer. I can get it to start, but after about 5 min, then it quits. I have cleaned the carb, change oil, changed plug, new gas, cleaned/checked...


if it wont start, check for spark.how you do that,ok take the spark plug wire out put it close to the sparkplug(use some gloves or something to insulate your self from get electric shot from the spark) find some one who pull the start rope, if you dont see any spark between wire and spark plug, tehre its not spark ,it will never start.you will have to remove the start recoil on the botton is like a damper whitch will have to be remove also ,on botton of it its like a coil whitch with the rotation of the damper when you pull the starter rope provoke the spark and send it to spark plug along with the gas combution get the engine started.that coil some time goes bad and have to be change.if you have electric starter. check the starter also.good luck
