Having problems with your Briggs & Stratton Pressure Washers ?

My TroyBilt Pressure Washer 2500 PSI 2.3 max gpm will not pull detergent through the tube. I have the correct tip on the nozzle and the tube connected to the pressure washer and in the bottle of detergent but I'm getting nothing. Any ideas? Thanks! -Carson


Answers :

If you follow the chemical hose back to the pump it will be attached to a barbed nipple, behind the nipple there should be an o-ring, spring and a ball.
A lot of the time if you are using the proper nozzle in the low pressure setting and still cannot create suction the ball will be stuck to the o-ring. You can just free this up and put a little white grease on the o-ring.

I have a Karcher 330 electric power washer. When connected and set to highest pressure (on variable wand) I get no motor action unless I reduce wand setting, then I get a little boost but not much.

My Karcher K3.48M pressure washer remains in the low pressure mode even when I return the pressure nozzle to the high pressure position. How can this be corrected. The pump seems to build up the pressure because when I release the handle the pump motor stops. This is a fairly new pump which was purchased in the latter part of last year(2010). Could this have been caused by the detergent I have been using which is an automotive shampoo? Please help I love this washer and for the times that I u

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?

Follow-up I've removed the lower arm, I'll spend some time and see whether I can get the pobem sorted out. My wife noticed the the detergent was smeared all over the door and repeated tries didn't get it out. Therefore, the water is not spraying. I can confirm the water is filling on the bottom and draining. The heater is working well. I am thinking there is no pressure to send the water through the tubing to the upper and lower arms. The motor is hot to touch (118 degrees with my temp probe). I
