I have a Husky pressure washer with a Honda 2600psi engine. Problem is, no water will come from the pressure hose. I connected the water w/out the pressure hose and water flows thru strongly. I then connected the pressure hose w/out the wand and water flowed thru the hose fine. When I connect the wand and pull the trigger, nothing. I have replaced the wand and that was not the problem. Please help.

We have a Karcher G2500VH pressure washer. If you start the engine with the trigger pulled on the spray wand it will run at full pressure until you release the trigger. after that, when you pull the trigger it will not have any more pressure than the water hose feeding it. Does it have an internal unloader valve? What is the part number?

I HAVE A BRAND NEW TROY-BUILT 2600PSI pressure washer. I have used it twice for about 1/2 hour each time. It worked perfectly. I tried to use it today with everything hooked up perfectly.

I let it warm up for plenty of time; but everry time I squeezed the trigger it instantly quit- it even backfired once before dying. I changed the g

I was given a low hour, 10 year old, CH PW205002LE 6.5 HP gas vertical shaft 2000 PSI/2.5 GPM pressure washer with a Lavor pump. It did not work - no pressure. I found a broken o-ring on the brass unloader valve and replaced it with a ring as close in size as I could find as the part break down doesn't state size. Everything was very clean. I coated everything with silicine grease and reassembled, seating the brass piston? as deep as it would go. I had to press the trigger in order to get the mo

... Honda Pressure Washer PSI 3000

I have the Karcher 2400 psi, 5.0 Honda engine. Starts fine, but when you pull the handle on the spray wand, the pump does not kick in and the water just continues to trickle out of the end of the wand at regular faucet pressure. Occasionally the "clutch" will kick in and you have full pressure, but if it does and I let off of the trigger then chances are that it won't kick in again. has been getting worse for several years.

... Pressure Washers

I just purchased a Simpson Megashot V3000 Pressure Washer and noticed the engine would stop running every time I released the wand trigger. Also, water was constantly spraying out of a valve underneath the unit - I assume it's some type of pressure release valve but there is no mention of it in the owners manual. I am thinking about returning it to Costco for a refund.

Power washer loses pressure. Engine runs fine. Taking the nozzel off, squeezing the trigger, and then putting the nozzel back on sometimes remedies the problem. How do I fix it? Thank you.


Your bypass valve is jamming. All you do is take it out, put a smear of o ring grease around the o rings then put back in, make sure you push it all the way in and should fix the problem. ... Karcher 2500 PSI Pressure Washer

Turn water on then actuate wand trigger. Pressure washer leaks when wand trigger is actuated and has very low pressure/flow output. After releasing trigger the pressure cycles on - off at approx 1 second interval. I suspect that the plasstic oulet tube is leaking causing low pressure leak out of bottom when trigger is actuated and causes pressure switch to cycle when the trigger is released. Any Help? This pressure washer is approx 18 months old!


You gave a very close solution yourself for the problem. But other leakages can cause such symtoms.Forexample a leaking head or a leaking chemical inlet. These can be caused because the spill valve (pressure control valve) is stuck. When this valve s ... Karcher PSI Electric Pressure Washer

I have a 5HP Honda engine installed on a Excell pressure washer. While the engine readily starts, it will not continue to run unless I keep the choke setting nearly completely closed. When I activate the pressure gun, it seems to generate adequate pressure, however, when the trigger is released, the engine continues to run at the same rpm instead of the normal variable rpm that most engines operate at during idling periods. The engine will always cease running when I push the choke rod all the w
