20 Most Recent Porter Cable Cable Premium Pressure Washer PCH2425 Questions & Answers

The most common cause of this is the pressure regulating spool valve sticks in the bore. As the pressure builds with the wand closed, the spool moves against a spring to block additional water from entering. When wand is triggered, pressure drops and more water is admitted. Remove the spool and clean the bore with crocus cloth on a dowel rod. Replace the O Rings on the spool and lube with a bit of plumber's grease and re-assemble. Often you can get a kit of O Rings for the washer or you can get EXACT replacements at a supplier... they MUST be the exact size as the originals.

Go to Porter Cables website and see if they have an unloader valve rebuild kit.

Or try a site like this one.

when the trigger for the wand is not pulled , there is a pressure relief valve that bypasses the water in the pump and so there is no pressure until the trigger is pulled again.
with the pump getting hot and not being able to pull the motor to restart, it indicates that that pressure relief valve has jammed ( faulty ) and the pump is running at full pressure all the time
That will heat the pump and stop the engine from restarting
That valve is where I would start looking for a problem

Try some blue LocTite thread fastener. It's an anaerobic-hardening resin. Remove the knob enough to get a drop onto the threads, then snug it up. Going forward, repeat as necessary. Just a drop.
Better than lock-washers. Scrollsaws basically just vibrate their little blades up & down.

If the charger got wet, or you tried to charge batteries that got wet... yes. Replace the charger, and throw away or recycle the water damaged batteries. I know thats not what you wanted to hear, but look at the bright side! The drill is most likley fine!

Hi bluejuice86...
You may have lost a small part that goes inside of the pressure adjuster.
You will save time and effort, replace it with a new pressure adjuster...you can get them from HomeDepot,Loews,Ace Hardware,etc.

on the front wheel , there is a screw that you can adjust ,, that will adjust the tracking of the front wheel, the rear wheel is stationary , once you have the new belt on, locate that screw,, and just click the switch as you adjust it,, once adjusted, you will see that it tracks straight and won't fall off
