Answers :

I have come across this before, it can be that the motor has burned out and in that case it can be better to purchase a new machine.

\015\012It could also be the capacitor which is not a very expensive item to replace. What the capacitor does is jumps starts the motor so if it is broken then the motor will not start in. There is a test that you can do to see if it is the capacitor but it means opening the machine. If your machine is under warranty I would not advise you to open it and take it to your nearest Karcher supplier/Dealer in order to fix it for you.

I have a Husky gasoline pressure washer. The honda motor starts but stalls because the pressure by-pass (not the right term) doesn't seem to open and builds up pressure. I haven't tried to remove any parts yet. I think grit has got in but don't know for sure. The pump looks pretty simple and the part I want to remove for cleaning looks like a plastic hexagon nob. Will this access the by-pass or is it something else.


I think you're right about the knob, but try this:Open the water to the washer. Leave the line open, and hold the trigger down to get all of the air out of the supply and discharge lines. While still holding the trigger down on the spray gun, ... Pressure Washers

I have pressure coming to my wand but when i attach the nozzel the water comes thru but with no force? I am trying to take the nozzel apart but can seem to do so. It is a Troy Built Washer and the wand is a yellow peice about 2.5 inches long. It has a reb button in the middle of it but it does not seem to do anything>


The red button is just for the warning label. Did you pull the nozzle down. This nozzle is an adjustable nozzle. You push it in and this is for the soap injector and you pull it out for the pressure. If you have done this, then you may need to replac ... Briggs & Stratton Pressure Washers

Hi,rn Hi, We are getting an "F4" error appear on our D3350 whenever we try to use it, (wash, rinse, etc). I can see water coming in from the side inlet, but the error seems to appear once it reaches the inlet for the sprayers. Perhaps the sprayer pipe is blocked? Is there anything that we can do to fix this ourselves? Thanks very much, most appreciated

Noticed dishes on top shelf not entirely clean. Ran machine empty and opened many times during wash. Noticed that Lower Spray Arm works as expected, but Middle Spray Arm turns only 1/8 or less, then Lower Arm spins again. Schematic with Use and Care manual just says pump motor switches from one to the other in certain cycles, but I don't see this happening. Looked for obstructions to water flow and pressure seems normal. Is control for this function part of the pump, or in the control panel?

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 honda GX240K1 on a BCS tiller. The engine seems to defy reason. I have adjusted the governor, set the max speed screw, adjusted the idle speed and have achieved some success but cannot seem to control max RPM's. The engine max's out at over 5K. I have tried about everything I can imagine yet nothing seems to fix it. Spec's say that it should idle at about 1400 Rpm yet it seems to idle best at about 1800-1900.

FDB750RCC1 When I start the DW, the motor hums loud then soft then loud then soft...if I advance the dial some sections of the cycle nothing will be running and others the motor is on, but no water is getting into the unit. I just replaced the inlet valve and solenoid and that didn't change anything. I can see water in the recirculating pipe running up the unit, but it will just try to make it up and fall back down. Not sure how to proceed...my thoughts would lead me to the main motor, but


Can you hear the water solenoid click when it calls for water? If so, check that the water source valve is on and water comes out of the valve. Check the entry hose for kinks.

Pressure Washer I have a Porter Cable pressure model no.PCH2401.It works fine for 5 minutes,then I can hear the motor loading down and then it stalls out. I tried to start it and it was very hard to pull on. disconnected the water supply and if was very easy to pull and started right up. I noticed the pump was very hot.This unit has a thermal relief valve on it,shouldn't it have released when it gets to a certain temperature .I was thinking maybe this is why it might be shutting the motor

My tappan dishwasher is only 1 1/2 yr old and its not getting at least 1/2 of dishes clean. We have tried everything from changing to liquid soap, increasing water pressure at meter, not using while washing clothes. We used a dishwasher cleaner to remove calcium, and run hot water in sink before using. We know the wand, pump and drain are working. It is model TDB210RFB5 with 1.1A motor. Is the motor too small to clean dishes? I wish I could get my money back or exchange for an upgrade. Thanks!

My Troy Bilt power washer (using Honda GCV160 engine) has no pressure coming from the pump. I checked the water flow, everything seems fine. I believe the pump needs oil added, however, I can't seem to firgure it out (how to add oil to the pump). I did notice that previously, I used to see drops of oil coming from under the pump. I I have a bad seal, can I add oil and test the pressure before I change the seal? Please advise.


I had a similar problem. Turns out I had left the hose disconnected and some sort of wasp built a paper type nest inside the washer tube that the hose connects to. I had to take the pump off and take apart and then cleaned it out with a screw driver. ... Honda Black Max 2600 PSI Pressure Washer
