Why does my pressure hose burst when I use a turbo nozzle

When using conventional tips the pressure washer works fine. If I attach a turbo nozzle the pressure hose will burst.

The orifice size in the turbo nozzle is too small. It should be at least a 4.0 to 4.5 nozzle size. If the hose only busts when using the Turbo, then that is what I would try first. If it is already a 4.0 try a 5.0. Plus I would make sure you have a water filter on the inlet of P/W, any little bit of debris can cause the nozzle to not function properly.

Turbo heads are pressure rated for different pressure washers, your turbo head is most likely rated bellow the maximum pressure of your washer which in turn causes a pressure build up in the hose and it's eventual failure.

SOURCE: I have a honda 2600 pressure washer. After

This is a symptom caused by a sticking Unloader valve. The Unloader valve is inside the pump outlet body under the large black knob.
Example picture : http://www.msservice.net/product_spotlight.html

Before doing any dis-assembly try this procedure first. This may sound weird but it often works. We do this with a short piece of garden hose,,,,, Add 3 to 4 ounces of engine oil into the water inlet by pouring the oil into and old short / cut off garden hose with the end elevated but connected to the pump inlet.
Slowly pull the engine starter cord so as to pump the added oil into the pump and let it sit over night. Just keep pulling the starter cord "IGNITION OFF" until you note oil exiting the high the high pressure hose connection.
Then connect everything like you normally would the next day.
MAKE sure to purge the water supply hose of air at the pump connection before starting the engine.
Start the engine. NOTING that your going to shoot out the oil you put in the day before..... Pull the wand trigger every 3 to 4 seconds so you cause the Unloader / thermal relief valve to stroke within the pump body. Don't give up... you have to do this for an extended period of time so that you have HIGH pressure each time you pull the wand trigger.
With the engine still running.... let it run trigger off for about 1 minute at mid engine speed. Pull the trigger again and see if you have high pressure. Do another long pause... then use as you normally would.

IF the above lubrication process does not work....
The Unloader / thermal relief valve needs to be dis-assembled so that the springs and seals can be lubricated with Lubriplate #105 white grease. Make sure to also lubricate the casing of the pump body before putting everything back into the pump body.
Here is the white grease tube your looking for at any automotive parts supply.
http://www.lubriplate.com/products/greases/no-105-motor-assembly-grease.html

This should get you going again. Just note that Unloader valves will notoriously stick after end of season storage upon the next use. It is important after an extended non-use period that the wand trigger is cycled every 3 - 4 seconds to exercise the Unloader valve springs and seals in the pump body. You only need to do this for about 45 seconds.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

This happens when air gets inside the hose. An air bubble of sorts is in the hose and will not build pressure until you blow the air out of the line. Start the pressure washer, turn on the water. pull the trigger on the gun. It will spitter and spatter and come to a trickle. release the trigger on the wand. Pull the trigger again and it will eventually work it self out.

Pressure washer are pretty simple, a few pistons and a spring device to control the pressure. The problem could be a broken part inside the pump itself. With any luck it could be the linkage between the pump and the motor. If there is a oil window in the pump or a pump oil fill plug open this and with the engine switched off slowly pull the starter cord and see if the pump works are moving. (don't do it fast or let the engine start or there will be oil everywhere.) this will tell you if the pump is working. It could also be the diverter this wold be harder to diagnose you could go and replace the whole pump also.

Re Stihl RE125K power washer. How to get a focused jet? Is the nozzle adjustable?


the best nozzle to use for your requirement is a turbo nozzle
It sprays a cone pattern that spins in an eccentric circle so that what ever is being cleaned is attacked from all angles
some machines do have adjustable nozzles so talk with your stihl dealer for ideas as to what is available

Motor runs, water flows but no pressure. I hope someone has an idea to the cause.


I presume you have put a nozzle onto the outlet. There will be no pressure without a nozzle.

When using the sweep nozzle (yellow tip), the pressure starts and stops but the machine works fine when using the circluar nozzle(red)


usually when the power washer pressure stops the machine is running out of water. the sweep function uses a little more water than the round wash tip. Make sure there are no leaks in the supply hose and that the supply faucet is turned on all the way and has plenty of "flow". also make sure the water connection at the washer is not leaking. use a new rubber washer to make a good seal on the supply hose on both ends. if either end leaks or can **** air, just a little bit of air into the pressure washer will cause it to loose pressure.

Does not give a continous high pressure flow cuts in and out


that is sure signal of insufficient water supply!

try easy solution first:
make sure that your mains is fully open, that tap on whihc hose is hook up is fully open and hose is of "decent" diameter to allow sufficient flow.

if above solution do not work then you need to make another, more difficult arrangement:
prepare 20litres pressure tank with inlet connected to mains and outlet by short hose to power washer, fill it with water from mains, keep it under mains pressure and use karcher power washer normaly. this will solve water supply problem. twenty litres will last about 2min, because it is re-filled, under standard pressure therefore it will last about 3min...

third possibility is to stop washing...

if you find my advice helpfull, please do not hesitate to left the comment and vote for me, thanx!

Can't unscrew nozzle from hose what do I do to loosen?


I used a vise and pipe wrench to loosen. Have to be careful with the vise that you don't over tighten it and damage the hose fitting. When replacing the nozzle, lube the threads with non-water soluble grease.

STARTS AND RUNS FINE BUT WHEN I START WASHING IT QUITS SPRAYING AND THEN BUILDS PRESSURE AND KILLS ENGINE


The reason it stops spraying might be a clogged gun, hose or nozzle-tip.
The reason for pressure buildup killing the engine might be a stuck unloader valve in the pump.

While you are checking each component of the "output" side, spray some penetrating lube into the "input" side of the pump (where the garden hose connects) and let it be working on the unloader valve.

Fix the spraying problem first:
Start at the nozzle and verify that it is open by using low-pressure air. Clean or replace as needed. Next check the hose (with nozzle and gun unhooked) and finally the gun/trigger mechanism.
All must be clear and open to perform correctly.

Next, pour a few ounces of power steering fluid (or similarly LIGHT oil) into the garden hose, attach it to the pump and turn on the water supply.

Leave the "output" hose, gun, etc. UNHOOKED and point the output port of the pump (where the high-pressure hose connects) towards a vacant, safe area.
Startup the engine and allow the oil in the garden hose to work its way thru. (About 1 -3 minutes of run-time.) Shut it down and attach the high-pressure hose.
Hope this solves the problem!

I have an electric power washer k3.99M. I just replaced the pressure hose and now the washer will not turn on. If I remove the unit from the water hose, it works, but when I hook everything back up, it...


This sounds like the hose is plugged or the nozzle itself is plugged. If the water cannot get through, the washer senses that the trigger is off and will not turn on the pressure. First just attach the hose without the gun and nozzle. If it pumps water, you know the hose is OK. Then attach the hose and gun ant try it. If it still works then you know it is the nozzle.

Cant change the high pressure hose on a Karcher


On the Kärcher, you have a bayonet mount at the base of the tip end of the pistol grip. This is where you attach different types of nozzles and gadgets after having removed the existing sprayer tube. Just push in and turn a quarter of a turn, then you pull it off the pistol grip. The hose is possible to remove from the machine as well, an ordinary threaded mount but since you need the pistol grip to regulate on/off this is probably not what you want to do. If the telescopic wand is made by Kärcher it should be very easy to snap it into place just like when you removed the sprayer tube/nozzle. If the attachment was made to fit Alto washers there is an inexpensive adapter that works very well. Good luck!
