I have the Coleman powermate 2400 PSI pressure washer and on initial start it sprays and has great pressure. But once I release the spray handle it will not spray again, not even one drop of water. I have verified water pressure, bought 3/4 hose, and also changed the spray handle with no help. Pressure washer was bought new at Lowes, but did not use for first three years of ownership, should have tested it. Thanks for any help on this. Ted Miller

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).

Turn water on then actuate wand trigger. Pressure washer leaks when wand trigger is actuated and has very low pressure/flow output.

I have a Karcher 550M pressure washer and was using today when all of a sudden the water started to pour through the handle hence lost the pressure of the water. Is this a rubber washer issue or the gun needs replacing or simpler than that. To be honest although I have had the washer for about 3/4 years now It is hardly used. Also can I fix it and where would I purchase the allen key to replace. Thanks Brian

I just purchased a Simpson Megashot V3000 Pressure Washer and noticed the engine would stop running every time I released the wand trigger. Also, water was constantly spraying out of a valve underneath the unit - I assume it's some type of pressure release valve but there is no mention of it in the owners manual. I am thinking about returning it to Costco for a refund.
