5 Signs That Your Pressure Washer Needs Repair

 Pressure washing is an effective way to clean your shop, equipment, vehicles, residential property and several other cleaning jobs. However, over time, pressure washing equipment can wear down, need service or break. Use this helpful guide to learn more about a few signs that your cleaning equipment needs professional repairs.


5 Signs That Your Pressure Washer Needs Repair

1. Trouble Turning On

Most gas engine pressure washers will turn off when they run out of oil or fuel. If this occurs, check the tanks and fill them as needed. Pressure washers will also shut off if they’re overheating. In these cases, allow the machine to cool off for 30 minutes before trying again.

If the washer doesn’t start at all, a broken spark plug, ignition coil, or electrical issue may be the reason. A clogged carburetor can also cause this problem. Either way, a repair professional can fix or replace the affected parts.

2. Heat Doesn’t Work

Problems that can cause heat not to work in your hot water pressure washer are low fuel in the tank, dirty fuel filter and/or fuel tank. If you’re using your commercial pressure washer frequently, the kerosene/diesel should be refreshed every three months.

3. Pressure Issues

Sometimes, the machine may pulsate or produce less pressure than you expect while you’re pressure washing. These issues could be due to a clog or a faulty hose, nozzle, belt, plunger, packing, or unloader valve.

These pieces wear out over time, but a professional can pinpoint which one is causing the problem and install replacement parts as needed.

4. Leaking

In most cases, water or oil leaks are caused by broken seals. Sometimes, a damaged or worn pump or plunger is the issue. In either case, the parts will need to be replaced by a pressure washer repair technician. 

5. Overheating and Sputtering

If you’re noticing your machine is overheating or that the outlet water is sputtering, this can happen when your machine is too hot. Without sufficient water supply, the pressure washer will have difficulty running smoothly; checking that the inlet isn’t plugged up to draw in water can help to resolve this issue.


To get your machine working again quickly, contact Express Pressure Washer Inc. in Blooming Prairie, MN. With more than 35 years in the pressure washing industry, these experts are prepared to diagnose and resolve any problem. They also sell new and used pressure washers if you’re ready to upgrade.

3 Basic Pressure Washing Equipment Problems

3 Basic Pressure Washing Equipment Problems

1. Low Pressure

If you feel like your washer just doesn’t have the needed output velocity, the problem may lie with the nozzle. A worn-down nozzle could cause pressure to diminish, as could one that’s poorly fitted. A replacement might be all you need to get the pressure level right again.

Note the nozzle is just like the gun, regulator, or any other part of the washer – its rating must match the machine to work properly. Check the recommended GPM (gallons per minute) in the manual, too.

2.Burner Issues. 

In the winter months there can be burner issues. Having problems with the burner in colder months may happen, due to exposure and frequent usage in outdoor elements in the warmer months.

Once the machine comes inside it could expose problems that may have been unseen while outside. Getting a hold of us at Express Pressure Washers, 507-583-2703 or www.expresspressurewashers.com can get you in touch with a service technician that will help determine the next step that needs to be taken to fix the problem.
