Drat, Darn & other harsh words

My pressure washer quit working. Worked great Thursday morning. Friday I took it down to my sons house to wash the deck and it wouldn't pump. Took it apart this morning and everything looked fine, put it back together and it still won't put out any pressure. Just put a new pump on it 2 years ago.

I'm curious, did you get an upgraded one from these guys?

Mine hasn't pumped soap since new, and it's been leaking oil since new, so I'm thinking of an upgrade.

Did you notice the bottom line in their price box? Looks like a bait and switch to me. The low price gets you there but oh! we don't have that one but while you are here let me tell you about.....................................

Qty Not available in the current price set.

No, I got it off ebay and it has worked perfectly until Yesterday.

I have a 2800 psi pressure with a Honda Engine, got it 3 years ago as a non working unit and fixed it by following a you tube video and freeing up a spring loaded valve where the pressure hose connected to the pump.

That is almost exactly the same one I have, different color. I did have that valve out and the pin in it was not stuck.

Do you always leave it pressured up when you store it?

I was told do that.
So far has worked for me.

Have keep it from freezing though.

Do you mean to not let the pressure off the hose after shutting it off? Don't see where that would matter & it's not going to hold forever anyway.

Many of these pressure washers use a cam to run the pistons, the only thing that keeps the pistons against the cam is water pressure, either created by the backpressure of the pumped water or the supply pressure from the garden hose. If the pump is spun without water supply pressure the pistons will hang up in their bores. You need to purge all air from pump through open nozzle, once it quits spitting air then close the gun. Let the trigger slam shut several times , this shock will drive the pistons back to the cam lobes.
Also make sure that any soap injector system is blocked off, they are a source of air draw if not working right.
