Having problems with your Pressure Washers ?

When trigger is engaged under pressure nothing happens.

\015 I can move the nozzle forward and water will come out under faucet pressure. When I try to move back to add pressure nothing happens. I can move nozzle back partially and get some pressure but when fully engaged it shuts off. This is a 2700 PSI Campbell Hausfeld washer with 7.5 HP Briggs engine\015
