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

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?


Hi, Karcher calls the unloader valve a spill valve, this is a link to a full drawing/parts listing , and your fault description might well be a sticking /seized unloader(spill ) valve hope this helps ... Karcher 2500 PSI Pressure Washer

I have a Briggs & Stratton gas power washer. This is the 1st time this year that I have used it. I put in fresh gas, hooked up the water supply. The engine started and then quickly stopped. I had to release the water pressure in the hose before I could pull start the engine. The only way to keep the engine running is to hold down the spray nozzle trigger. Once that is released the pressure in the hose builds up and the engine stops.


Sounds like the unloader is not working correctly. Try replacing it and see what happens. ... Briggs & Stratton Prosumer 20324 Gas Pressure Washer

I have a Husky pressure washer with a Honda 2600psi engine. Problem is, no water will come from the pressure hose. I connected the water w/out the pressure hose and water flows thru strongly. I then connected the pressure hose w/out the wand and water flowed thru the hose fine. When I connect the wand and pull the trigger, nothing. I have replaced the wand and that was not the problem. Please help.


Check the quick disconnect to the wand these are spring operated and can get stuck ... Pressure Washers

I have a Simoniz S2800, it will only start with the trigger depressed to release the pressure and when it starts the engine seems laboured and there doesn't seem to be the ame pressure as it used to have, also if it isn't used after a min or so it will release water pressure from the bottom, do I need a seal kit or a pump kit to correct this problem.

When I pull the trigger on the pressure washer no water comes out, but when I take the attachment off, water comes out just fine. It seems as if the trigger isn't working or there is a blockage in the tip. How can I know which it is?

I have the Karcher 2400 psi, 5.0 Honda engine. Starts fine, but when you pull the handle on the spray wand, the pump does not kick in and the water just continues to trickle out of the end of the wand at regular faucet pressure. Occasionally the "clutch" will kick in and you have full pressure, but if it does and I let off of the trigger then chances are that it won't kick in again. has been getting worse for several years.

... Pressure Washers

I have had 3 Karcher pressure washers all experience the same problem and so have two of my neighbors. Our area has very hard water and it causes problems with the washer not bringing up the pressure when the trigger is pulled (or surges up and down) and the nozzles clogging, etc. The service repair facilities cannot tell me how to prevent this. Many attempts to contact Karcher for advice have been ignored. I have been thinking that perhaps running the engine for a few seconds with no hoses a


If your water is that hard (and it appears it is) WD40 will NOT solve the problem. You should look into a water softener. However, chances are that a small, inexpensive model will not have the flow capacity required for a pressure washer. You'll like ... Karcher K2.26 Electric Power Washer

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

I have a 5HP Honda engine installed on a Excell pressure washer. While the engine readily starts, it will not continue to run unless I keep the choke setting nearly completely closed. When I activate the pressure gun, it seems to generate adequate pressure, however, when the trigger is released, the engine continues to run at the same rpm instead of the normal variable rpm that most engines operate at during idling periods. The engine will always cease running when I push the choke rod all the w

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?
