Having problems with your Pressure Washers ?

No pressure I have a husky 1750, With all connections clear of any obstructions the pressure washer turns on sounds normal, but when you pull the trigger there is no way near enough pressure to do anything..The gun and H/p hose is brand new..Any ideas?


Answers :

It is probably air locked....Here's what you need to do. Connect the garden hose, and HP hose, but not the gun. Turn on the water, and let it run while you make sure that there are no high points in the garden hose that can trap air....Work the hose so that any air is displaced through the pressure washer. Continue in this manner through the HP hose. Shut off the water and connect the gun. Turn the hose back on, and operate the gun for several minutes, pulling the trigger and releasing. This alternately allows the water pressure to build up on house pressure and then to depressure, pulling residual air from the system. Release the trigger, and start the machine. Usually, this is enough to get full washing pressure. If it is very difficult to start, you can hold the trigger down on the gun and pull the start cord at the same time. Holding the trigger down acts as an unloader, making the starting easier.

I have a DPH3800 Dewalt pressure washer and the soaper isn't working properly. Right tip is being used but when trigger is not pressed it puts water into the bucket. When trigger is pressed it does **** some solution into the hose but very little and very slow. The valve is opened all the way. I know my former partner used bleach in the system which I read in the manual is a no no but it did work at the end of last season. Any ideas?

I have a Briggs & Stratton gas power washer. This is the 1st time this year that I have used it. I put in fresh gas, hooked up the water supply. The engine started and then quickly stopped. I had to release the water pressure in the hose before I could pull start the engine. The only way to keep the engine running is to hold down the spray nozzle trigger. Once that is released the pressure in the hose builds up and the engine stops.


Sounds like the unloader is not working correctly. Try replacing it and see what happens. ... Briggs & Stratton Prosumer 20324 Gas Pressure Washer

We have a Katcher HDS 3.5/30-4 M Ea. Was using it, stopped using it briefly in the middle of a job, pulled trigger again, and there was a lack of pressure. Went to the machine to troubleshoot. The "engine indicator light" is on. Checked the temperature of machine: fine. Water intake: fine. We have not been running it at high temperatures, but about 50 degrees C. The pressure was at about 2300 PSI before it stopped. Any ideas?

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 McCulloch FH160B power washer and it no longer builds up pressure. I haven't used this very much at all. I tore it apart and cleaned everything I could find. When i pull the trigger for the spray nozzle, I get line water pressure. When I release the trigger, the power washer sounds like it starts to build up pressure. When this was working correctly, the pump would shut off when the trigger was released. Any suggestions?
