20 Most Recent Psi Blue Max 2200 High Pressure Gas Power Washer Questions & Answers

My washer has a circuit breaker that will shut the unit down and if it shut off while using shut the off switch off and pull the plug and let cool down then restart. if that does not work your inlet on the sprayer wand could be plugged. Take it apart and clean. Do this with all hoses. If you are using a GFI receptacle it may need to be reset.

OK here is the solution. There are six plastic vaules inside the pump if you have any mechanical skills you can fix this.
These plastic valves melt when you leave your pressure washer running for a short period when you are not pressure washing. once this happens the pump becomes cloged and does not function. I spent alot of time and research on finding the parts for replacement. I called the main company of this washer pump and here is the toll free number
800-999-2245 and the web sight www.pressureparts.com but to save time just call and talk to the service tech tell him you model number and he will give you the part number.
I only paid $13.75 plus shipping around $5.50 I do not work or have any intrest in this comapny but I tell you after all the frustration and run around I had trying to fix this Home depot power washer I deesided to help eveyone else out
I can be reached at [email protected] if you have any other questions

1. If you have an inlet chemical injection valve make sure that the hose is intact and that the valve is closed.
2. Purge all air from the line by holding the nozzle actuation lever open until all air has been purged. When you connect the water supply hose turn it on before connecting the high pressure hose and let the unit self purge to the pump outlet high pressure hose fitting. Then connect the high pressure hose.
3. You could have a stuck spring and ball inside the high pressure head of the pump. You can tip the unit on its' side and add a substantial amount of WD-40 to the water supply hose fitting in an attempt to free the springs and balls.
4. Try BRIEFLY running the unit without the hose connected to see if there is high pressure water ejected from the high pressure fitting.
5. Inlet water screen at hose connection is clogged (hose screen and rubber) Check screen for debris.
6. The water strainer is clogged. (Almost looks like an LPG regulator just after but in line of the supply hose connection to the pump)

Order of troubleshooting

1, 2, 5, 6, 4, then 3.

Pulley ? What pulley?
If you mean the recoil starter pull cord is stuck it might be a simple fix. Did your machine tip over on its side?
If it did oil often flows into the cylinder. Just remove the spark plug. The recoil cord should pull easily and oil will spurt out the spark plug opening. Pull until oil stops coming out. Check your oil level. Replace your spark plug and see if she starts.

Here is a site that shows the lightweight blue max power washer hose
It looks to be a right-fine chinese product manufactured using the technology we paid-for and developed over the past 50 years and then gave away with our jobs overseas.

If you bump up to professional power washers..

Power washer hoses are interchangeable as long as the quick-connects on end of hose can unscrew.

We used power washers a couple times a week. When I needed a new hose, I went to the hydraulic hose shop. They make steel-wound hydraulic hoses for tractors and heavy equipment.

Search 'hydraulic hose in Your-town-your-state'

If the quick-connect ends of the Blue max hose do not come off, check the quick-connect end attached to machine. If it comes off, you can buy a new gun and hose. If the quick connect on the blue max machine does not come off, then the life of your machine is directly related to the life of that single quick-connect fitting.

Search 'power washer guns'
Here's a site with guns like we used

Loosen the carb bowl nut until it begins leaking into the shallow clear glass bowl you placed beneath it. It may take a minute to have drained the water out of the bowl and another minute or so to get some more from the gas tank. With the glass bowl you will be able to see the water in the bottom and gas floating on top of it. When you see the gas on top then tighten the bowl nut and try to crank. (Choking helps draw out water still in carb) Return gas collected. to tank but do not let the water go back in.

Check reset. alot of machines of this type have one. Also the pressure sensor or relief valve is designed to stop the motor if to much pressure builds up in system. May check this in your manual..

Your pressure washer is sold under various brand names, however I believe that it is made by campbell hausfeld. Parts are here:

Take a close look at the pump diagram to make sure it looks like yours. Good luck

Ensure that the fuel line is not blocked. Disconnect the small rubber hose from the carburetor. Open the fuel on/off lever and see if fuel runs out of the hose, it should. If not, you probably have a blockage in the hoses, the on/off valve is blocked with debris or sludge, or the small bronze filet inside your fuel tank is blocked also. Take fuel tank off to check for blockage of the fitting. Simple process and you only need a 10mm socket.

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 there aldao62367

if the oil level is at correct level , check that the tank breather in the fuel cap is clear
then change the oil it may be thinning out , and low oil sensor float is not floating and makes the unit think its got a low oil problem - shuts down, also check for a tight valve ?
off the top of head valve clearance for inlet 0.005 thou and ex 0.007 thou

change oil to a 20w/50 or 10w/ 40 oil

should hold about 1.0 litre

There is a plastic hose that is for detergent injector that goes on valve body just below your pressure washer hose

Best place for replacement parts for many different brands of pressure washers is WWW.Northerntool.com . on the net or at your local Northern tool store. Most washers use standard fittings. The only info that you need is pressure and gallons per min rating. You can purchase a higher quality hose with very high pressure rating however you must use same size gpm tip to obtain proper pressure. Good luck
