Is there anything else i can try or do i need to buy my friend a new one!\015

Answers :

Hi. you will need to go inside the machine to have a look, but it might just be a micro switch on the bypass valve stuck.
\015\012you can not miss it, there is a wire going to it, just unclip and check with a meter when pressing the little switch in and out.

I have a troy built power washer powered by honda. It runs for 10 - 15 minutes and then dies. I have replacced the ignition coil, spark plug, rebuilt the carburetor, checked fuel flow and placed the unloader valve and it still dies. Once it dies and the pressure is released it repeats the problem. Any suggestions?

I started working with the Karcher KB4040 pressure washer and all was well for 1-2mins, then it sputered a bit and all power died. All hoses were still attached properly, it hadn't blown a fuse in my house and the fuse in the plug of the washer is working fine.When I switch it on I get nothing. Do you think the motor has packed in? I borrowed the machine from my neighbour who's away on holiday, so don't know much about age of the machine. Any advice much appreciated.

I have an electric power washer model PW181000AV with about 25 hours on it. Got home from my winter retreat and used the power washer about 1/2 hour on the driveway. Everything worked fine. Went to complete the job the next day, and the motor would not power on. No sounds at all, like it wasn't getting electricity. Did the standard trouble shooting with ground fault and on my own electrical system. Been using the same outlet for all the time I have owned the power washer, so distance is no

So I found this power washer for sale. The seller claims that the washer generates a good stream of water, not just full power. He also mentions that after a few minutes the engine starts to bog down like it is working extra hard. Does this sound like a pump issue? Could something be clogged or would the pump need to be replaced? Or should I avoid this power washer?

My DD 603 has burnt out the power board marked 34740453-G. It tripped the circuit breaker at the power box. It is burnt out on the board where the loom connects for the upper washer. It is burnt vertually in the centre of where the loom joins to the power board and the centre of the loom. I am wondering if something else has gone wrong with the washer causing the power board to burn out, or can i just replace the power board?

My Delonghi Dishwasher keeps turning off. The dishwasher is turned on at the power point. The water is turned on. Okay When I press the POWER botton on the front it wont stay on. I have to keep my finger on the POWER button and then press the START button for washer to work. If I do this it will then pump out any water in the bottom and start to work. ***BUT when you take your finger of the POWER button the washer just turns off and stops working. Do you have any idea what could be the problem p


Yes, the power button is faulty. by pressing the power button forcefully, you are in effect allowing the contacts to close. Replace it. ... Dishwashers

I have a washer model 1805 (1800 PSI). Everything works but there is always leaking of water (sprays) when I use it. The leak is not from where the water hose connects to the washer, but where the black piece attached to the hose is connected to the body of the washer. I can still do a decent job of power washing, but am wondering if the leaking of water is reducing the power of the washer.


Yes, leaking water will reduce the pressure. Sounds like you need to replace the O-Ring inside the connections on the pump. This is where the pressure hose connects to the pump. If you look carefully inside that connection you will see an O-Ring. Use ... Campbell Hausfeld PW1805 1800 PSI 15 GPM Pressure Washer

I own a KUDS01FLSS3 KitchenAid dishwasher. The lights on the control panel do not come on and a cycle can not be started. There is about an inch of water in the bottom of the dishwasher basin and it looks like the previous cycle did not complete. I have checked the wall outlet that the washer is plugged into and the washer is receiving power from the wall. And ideas? My next thought was to take the door off and check the power supply running to the door panel and control panel.

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?
