20 Most Recent FAIP 2100psi 2gpm Faip Power Pressure Washer Pump Only Questions & Answers


I don't know about that brand of power washer.
We used several types of power washers over the years, and they each called for 20 or 30 weight non-detergent oil in the pump. SAE 20 or SAE 30

The pump oil comes about half way up inside the pump.

The engine oil is 10W30

Do not turn a power washer on its side or upside down or oil will run into carburetor.

The water supply may be blocked. Check filters, screens, or it may be air-locked.

Hello,

Alot of people have tried doing this as the genuine o-ring and seal kits are so expensive and sometimes hard to source, but many companies make orings and seals that are unique and cannot be found aftermarket,
If you are lucky you may find some but the only way of doing so would be to take the actual seal and orings down to your local bearing and seal supplier and they will measure it up and do their best to find some for you...

Regards
Brad

The contacts on the microswitch have probably eroded a bit with age. The simple fix is to remove the red cover and adjust the setscrew that hits the microswitch plunger. Loosen the locknut and use an allen wrench to adjust the set screw. If you aren't sure which to adjust, power up the washer and pull the trigger while watching the motor assy. You'll see an arm moving outward when the trigger is released and in when you pull it. Follow this arm to the adjusting screw. Had the same problem with mine and had to move the screw OUT a half turn.
Hope this helps.

Your water inlet may be stopped up. Whether this model only has a screened hose washer or a better filter, pay special attention to that. Be sure the pathway is free and clear.

Take each of poppet valves and while pushing (with a pencil or something) on the part that moves up and the spring pushes it back down - with magnification and lots of light, be sure there isn't a small piece of debris affecting one of those valves. Its easy to miss, so look very closely.

Next, remove the hose from the pump. We are by-passing the entire unit that includes pressure hose, trigger gun, lance, spray nozzle. If it seems to pump a lot of water out of the pump--then the problem is most likely the trigger gun is clogged or the pressure nozzle is clogged. Some trigger guns can be taken apart -- some, not so much. Same with nozzles.

I hope this helps you, Randell. If yes, please take a sec to rate me. Thanks!
