Having problems with your Honda Pressure Washers ?

Does not get up to pressure engine runs fine any suggesting thank you

Answers :

If the engine is turning and running OK then its one of two differant problems . The first is it could be that one of the valves inside the valve body is stuck or something is inside keeping the valve from seating properly somethimes the cages brake and get stuck in there . Its made of plastic and likely if removed the valve will work correctly again .If you look at the valve body you will see caps most of the time brass the valves are located under these caps take them off one at a time being careful of the Oring seal all it takes is one of them to create this problem . The other thing is called the unloader valve . Its located derictly under the pressure control knob and is 4 or 5 inches long . What it dose is allow the water to recurlitate thought the body when the trigger is off so the pressure dosn't build up and blow something out . There is a relief valve but that is tempature sensitive works more like the thermostat in your car and most blow at 145 degrees . If the unloader valve is not moveing then the mechine just runs and never will build up pressure . The problem is most of them especaly on smaller mechines are not serviceable and need to be replaced as a unit you can't even take them apart . The good news is most of the time if you take them off and spray light oil into themlike WD40 and work them back and forth they can be cleaned and will work with out any other problems . You should regeralr turn this knob and during winter storage the valve body should be filled with antifreeze with a lubericant . 9 out of 10 times if you check these things it will fix the problem and woun't cost you anything but some of your time .

Hi. I have a Briggs & Stratton 2800PSI gas pressure washer. I can get it to start, but after about 5 min, then it quits. I have cleaned the carb, change oil, changed plug, new gas, cleaned/checked air filter. Nothing will keep it running. Wondering if it may be not enough water pressure, but would that cause it to stop like that? When it runs, it does a good job, but it stops just as you get going. Do you have any other suggestions? Thanks!

I have a Generac pressure washer, model #01450-0, with a Honda 5hp motor. The motor runs fine, but the pressure hose pulsates as if the pump is intermittently making pressure, and the pressure out of the sprayer is about half of what it should be. A friend suggested replacing the seals in the unloader. I bought an unloader kit, replaced everything and it still runs the same. It will build a small amount of pressure, spray for a few seconds, then the pressure dropps to almost nothing. Any help ap

I have a Northstar pressure washer powered by a honda GC160 engine. The last time i used it, water leaks from the bottom of the unit, whether it is running or not. When running, the pressure is fine. I have felt underneath and it appears that the water is coming from the second opening from the rear. Is there a pressure relief valve there. I have a manual but cannot find any descriptors for underneath the motor.

My 1 year old gas powered Husky model HU80432 starts and runs fine but gets no pressure from the wand. Water is running freely through all connections and hoses so there are no obstructions, just no pressure, the water just shoots out in a thin stream for about 3 feet. I stored it inside for the winter so there were no freezing issues. What's wrong?
