Water backs up in the soap reservoir when using the pressure washer

Sounds like a bad check valve or hooked up wrong the soap should siphon in could valve fitting be in backwards, or in wrong place I use a separate siphon valve that fits between pump out let and high pressure hose.

Why is water continuously coming out of the thermal relief even when the water is cold?

if your pressure is satisfactory then you will need to replace the thermal relief you can plug the port as long as the pump is unloading fine when trigger is released an get a replacement asap thermal relief valve will open when the gun is released for a long duration of time over three minutes.detergent valve inside the barb you may have to assist the ball bearing inside it might be stuck to the o-ring and the siphon it produces is not sufficient enough to cause can insert a nail small enough and slowly insert it inside the port til you feel it separate.

Water stopped coming out while using it. viewing port on right side shows a red dot in center.

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.

Air Leak From Pump Head on Porter Cable C2001 Pancake Compressor

The real question is where exactly is the leak coming from. Compressors have a pressure release valve designed to let the pressure off of the compressor motor so it can start when there is pressure in the tank. This valve is often the culprit and fairly easy to replace. You can order it direct from porter-cable online. Just in case double check the drain petcock sometimes these get worn and won't close completely and can easily be over looked when trouble shooting.

Hot water coming out of a cold water pressure washer

This sounds like a heat transfer problem

You should check that the oil reservoir for the pump has oil in it. It sounds like it may be low. Also, if it is a gas model, the engine oil may be low.

Remember the pump oil reservoir should be only 1/3 to 1/2 full of non-detergent oil.
