Having problems with your Pressure Washers ?

Although water is coming out of my pressure washer, there is no pressure, it is no better than a garden hose! Help.


Answers :

Remove spray tip and clean with a paper clip, Check pump oil resevior and add 10w 30 pump oil if needed, also look for turn knob ,usually black with -+[plus /minus symbols ] and turn towards plus for extra pressure. May need new pistol/wand assembly and make sure hose is clear by seeing if water will run through hose freely and generously.

Took it to Northern and they are replacing the pump under warranty but said it was likely because I was using quick connects on my garden hose coupling and that was restricting the water flow making the pump overheat.
