Question about Honda Pressure Washer PSI 3000
When using conventional tips the pressure washer works fine. If I attach a turbo nozzle the pressure hose will burst.
Posted by Anonymous on
The orifice size in the turbo nozzle is too small. It should be at least a 4.0 to 4.5 nozzle size. If the hose only busts when using the Turbo, then that is what I would try first. If it is already a 4.0 try a 5.0. Plus I would make sure you have a water filter on the inlet of P/W, any little bit of debris can cause the nozzle to not function properly.

Turbo heads are pressure rated for different pressure washers, your turbo head is most likely rated bellow the maximum pressure of your washer which in turn causes a pressure build up in the hose and it's eventual failure.

This is a symptom caused by a sticking Unloader valve. The Unloader valve is inside the pump outlet body under the large black knob.

Before doing any dis-assembly try this procedure first. This may sound weird but it often works. We do this with a short piece of garden hose,,,,, Add 3 to 4 ounces of engine oil into the water inlet by pouring the oil into and old short / cut off garden hose with the end elevated but connected to the pump inlet.
Slowly pull the engine starter cord so as to pump the added oil into the pump and let it sit over night. Just keep pulling the starter cord "IGNITION OFF" until you note oil exiting the high the high pressure hose connection.
Then connect everything like you normally would the next day.
MAKE sure to purge the water supply hose of air at the pump connection before starting the engine.
Start the engine. NOTING that your going to shoot out the oil you put in the day before..... Pull the wand trigger every 3 to 4 seconds so you cause the Unloader / thermal relief valve to stroke within the pump body. Don't give up... you have to do this for an extended period of time so that you have HIGH pressure each time you pull the wand trigger.
With the engine still running.... let it run trigger off for about 1 minute at mid engine speed. Pull the trigger again and see if you have high pressure. Do another long pause... then use as you normally would.
IF the above lubrication process does not work....
The Unloader / thermal relief valve needs to be dis-assembled so that the springs and seals can be lubricated with Lubriplate #105 white grease. Make sure to also lubricate the casing of the pump body before putting everything back into the pump body.
Here is the white grease tube your looking for at any automotive parts supply.
This should get you going again. Just note that Unloader valves will notoriously stick after end of season storage upon the next use. It is important after an extended non-use period that the wand trigger is cycled every 3 - 4 seconds to exercise the Unloader valve springs and seals in the pump body. You only need to do this for about 45 seconds.

This happens when air gets inside the hose. An air bubble of sorts is in the hose and will not build pressure until you blow the air out of the line. Start the pressure washer, turn on the water. pull the trigger on the gun. It will spitter and spatter and come to a trickle. release the trigger on the wand. Pull the trigger again and it will eventually work it self out.

Pressure washer are pretty simple, a few pistons and a spring device to control the pressure. The problem could be a broken part inside the pump itself. With any luck it could be the linkage between the pump and the motor. If there is a oil window in the pump or a pump oil fill plug open this and with the engine switched off slowly pull the starter cord and see if the pump works are moving. (don't do it fast or let the engine start or there will be oil everywhere.) this will tell you if the pump is working. It could also be the diverter this wold be harder to diagnose you could go and replace the whole pump also.
