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?

I have two DeVilbiss issues: First, on my pressure washer, I no longer get pressure on "high" mode from the hose. I prime the pump but it doesn't seem to be creating enough force for a high pressure. Second, on my generator, the gas from the gas tank leaks out. The tank is plastic or poly and don't know if it's a gasket issue.

Hi- I have a Simoniz S1600 pressure washer and usually when I first turn it on, the motor turns on to build up pressure. Now the motor won't kick in no matter what I do. Water still comes out of the gun as a small stream but there is no pressure. There are no reset buttons on the exterior of the machine. Thanks!

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.

Started by Craftsman 2700 PSI , 2.3 GPM Briggs & Stratton Powered Pressure Washer for first time in 9 months. Added new oil, and gas. started but is smoking from muffler and is dripping what appears to be oil near the exhaust end. I shut it down. What could this be due to?

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?
