Having problems with your Pressure Washers ?

I have an older Landa Pressure Washer. The burner is not working. Once I get the machine running and water flowing to the pressure washer, with the wand pressed, I flip the burner on switch....and nothing...I have no idea how to work on a pressure washer burner. I have been told it could be the igniter, but I don't know how to fix it if it is. Any help is appreciated.


Answers :

Check for 12V at the igniter connector with the unit running. If you have 12V and no igniter it may be stuck or bad. Thrun the unit off and read continuity across the DISCONNECTED igniter plug / terminals to the igniter. No resistance = open igniter.

\015\012If all of the above checks out your going to have to look at the fuel pressure switch to see if it closes and passes 12V to the igniter.

\015\012Before you give up... Check the fuse.

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. I e-mailed Ryobi and they will not respond. There were no instructions on installing and adjusting the unloader. Could you give me an idea how to install and set up the new unloader. Any help would be most appreciated.


I think your main problem is that the unloader valve needs to be lubricated. Use the very best water resistant bearing grease you can find. If you can e-mail me a pic of your unloader assembly I can try to explain how to set it up. [email protected] ... Honda Pressure Washers

My Delonghi Dishwasher keeps turning off. The dishwasher is turned on at the power point. The water is turned on. Okay When I press the POWER botton on the front it wont stay on. I have to keep my finger on the POWER button and then press the START button for washer to work. If I do this it will then pump out any water in the bottom and start to work. ***BUT when you take your finger of the POWER button the washer just turns off and stops working. Do you have any idea what could be the problem p


Yes, the power button is faulty. by pressing the power button forcefully, you are in effect allowing the contacts to close. Replace it. ... Dishwashers

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?

I have a Kenmore dishwasher. A few years ago I was told there was a recall on certain models that there was a defect in the rinse agent part. I was told not to use any Jet dry. My glassware has a film on it. I was wondering if I could put white vinegar in the rinse agent area. Otherwise the washer works fine. My model #363-15171000 Serial # SZ305300R Thanks in advance.

I have a HD 2701 DR pressure washer that starts and runs fine and usually works fine the "first" time but if you let go of the trigger and then try to use it again you just get a trickle out of the end of the wand. Usually if you hold the thing open for a while it will kick in (sometimes it takes forever...). Any ideas? It sounds like some of the "unloader valve" problems are similar but I do not see an "unloader valve" in the parts lists for the 2701...
