Check to see if you have an obstruction in the hose or tip. If clear you have a problem with the unloader valve. This valve sometimes gets stuck and continually recirculates the water not allowing you to build pressure. Sometimes you can remove and clean. If cleaning doesn't work you will need to replace it. Let me know how you make out.

You need to start the unit and let it run for few minutes to get worm, make sure the water is fully open and the unit is fully cleaned. Push on the trigger on and off for few times not letting the unit shutdown, then start increasing the fuel mixture ¼ turn and push on the trigger again and see…this could be that the unit need service or the governor springs getting week if you got one on your unit…let me know how that work for you and please do not forget to rate my service so we can improve on it with your help.

Will start and run fine water comes out but has no pressure


Maybe bad pump. Remove wand and wand hose, run machine with water in. High pressure water coming out of wand/hose connection, bad wand or hose. No high pressure water, bad pump, replace.

Engine runs fine. But it quits when I pull the trigger on the wand to start washing


Does this behavior change if the engine is warm and on minimum choke? Do you get any water spray before the engine quits? Carburetor could be dirty or float stuck. Try putting dose of carburetor cleaner through engine and cycle choke lever and engine speed lever back and forth while engine is running after it has warmed up without running water spray. See owners manual.

Devilbis Excell pressure washer with Honda engine runs smoothly without wand, but stalls when wand is attached.


If the pressure unloader is not working correctly and/or the nozzle is partially clogged with debris, the engine will be overtasked. Try lowering the pressure by turning the pressure knob to lowest setting and test. If the engine continues to run, gradually increase the pressure. Try using the washer set to about 75% of rated capacity and use max pressure for stubborn stains. Using any machine at max will shorten the life of components. If lowering pressure does not help, then unloader is faulty or stuck. Try storing the unit with oil in the pump. Remove both hoses and infuse oil into water inlet intill all the water is displaced (let set for day or two). Good luck

Buck up now. You did good turning it off. Check the oil and water as described below and then fire it up again.

The power washer is your friend, but do NOT wash off your shoes while wearing them. Or rinse your dog or your hand >> it will blow a hole in aforementioned.

1) Your water has to be turned on before firing up the pressure washer. Simply squeeze gun trigger while starting engine. Do NOT wire the trigger closed to start or use power washer wand. That is a good way for the thing to break free and punch a hole in your pants.
2) You need oil in engine and in pump > engine oil comes about half way up dip stick > pump oil comes up to middle of viewing window on pump head.

That's all there is to know. I think your new engine had a growing pain, and things are fine.

Honda is a good engine. We ran our first Honda power washer for years until it fell off the trailer upside down and the chain kept it tied to the trailer until the gas tank was sanded off by the freeway after which it caught fire for a bit. You will have better luck.

Pressure stops and starts intermittently


<span class="Apple-style-span" style="font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 14px; line-height: 18px; ">With the engine turned off, pour liquid TSP into the fresh water inlet until it comes out the other end at first just water that is already within the pump will come out but make sure you put enough TSP that it starts to come out the wand outlet. Then, let it sit for 48 hours and don't run it at all. This is how I fixed my no pressure problem [email protected] owner of Honda 5.5 with Comet pressure washer pump</span>

Have power to unit. sounds like it is working. pull trigger on the gun and hardly any water comes out. turn it off and there is pressure coming out


Have you tried pulling the spray nozzle tip off and checking it for blockage? The spray tips have a tiny hole for the water to pass through, and sometimes a grain of sand or debris will get stuck inside the nozzle and restrict the water flow. Something to check.
