Having problems with your Campbell Hausfeld 3000 Psi Industrial Electric Pressure Washer ?

My electric 3000 psi campbell hausfeld pressure washer will operate at first until I release the trigger on the wand.


Answers :

Pressure relief valve is stuck.
You can try to unlock it by turning the machine one once you have loosened the nut holding it in place.
Use a towel to capture it once the machine its turned on as the water pressure inside will force it to pop out.. Usually its easier with 2 people doing it.
Then you need grease to make it nice and slippery so you dont have a repeat problem

Turn water on then actuate wand trigger. Pressure washer leaks when wand trigger is actuated and has very low pressure/flow output. After releasing trigger the pressure cycles on - off at approx 1 second interval. I suspect that the plasstic oulet tube is leaking causing low pressure leak out of bottom when trigger is actuated and causes pressure switch to cycle when the trigger is released. Any Help? This pressure washer is approx 18 months old!

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 Honda GC160 5 horsepower power washer with 2400 psi. When its cold it is easy to start but after it has been running for a while the only way to start it is to have the water shooting out of the wand. Once it is hot and running if i stop the stream of water (release the trigger on the wand) then the machine shuts off. It seems like the only way to keep it running is to constantly have water running through the wand. Please help

I just purchased a Simpson Megashot V3000 Pressure Washer and noticed the engine would stop running every time I released the wand trigger.

I am thinking about returning it to Costco for a refund.

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...
