I have a troy built power washer powered by honda. It runs for 10 - 15 minutes and then dies. I have replacced the ignition coil, spark plug, rebuilt the carburetor, checked fuel flow and placed the unloader valve and it still dies.

Troy-Bilt 2550 20293 pressure washer not producing pressure. Worked when last used 2 months ago. Pump pistons are moving up and down when engine is pulled through. Inlet water is flowing through pump but no pressure when engine is started. I have the same problem. Water flows thru the pump when not running, but no flow or goes in by-pass mode when I start the pump. The pump being Troy Bilt Model 020296-01. I replaced unloader valve even. Anything else I can do?


You replaced the unloaded valve. Are you positive you have the unloader screwed to pressure and not turned the opposite way? You will have no pressure if it is adjusted wrong. One other thing I have encountered is that the unloader has a ball bearing ... Pressure Washers

It sounds like an air lock. Try this: With the machine off, connect the hose to the washer and let it run for several minutes to get all of the air out of the hose, and to purge any air out of the pump. Shut off the water, and connect the high pre ... Briggs & Stratton Pressure Washers

I immediately shut it down and let it cool down. After it was cool, I turned on the water supply again and the relief valve was still spewing water from it.

I have pressure coming to my wand but when i attach the nozzel the water comes thru but with no force? I am trying to take the nozzel apart but can seem to do so.
