Having problems with your Pressure Washers ?

Pressure wahser has no pressure but it never froze help

Answers :

You probably have a stuck valve. It really depends what type of pressure washer you have though. Some have a knob that you can turn to increase or decrease the pressure. If you have a knob like this the u-cup in this assembly may be damaged. Or the pin that is pushed down is stuck.
\015\012If you do not have a knob and the line comes straight from the pump, you may have some orings damaged in the valves.
\015\012Sometimes corrosion is the problem and has broken off and gotten stuck in the valves.
\015\012It is definitely in your pump though, if your motor still runs.

I have a pressure washer with a faip 3 piston pump. the other day i was using it and it stopped unloading. i cleaned the unloader and it didn't help. I bought a new one and it still won't work.
