Oil pump does not work

Checlk the oil worm gear is driving the pump. If this isnt the problem then try the following:-

The type of oil pump fitted to these models is prone to getting blocked.
Remove the oil pump. The gear on top should turn freely, give the pump a clean and clean the oil pipe to the tank by removing the oil cap and blowing through with an air line. If the oil in the tank contains alot of dirt, empty/clean and replace. The filter on the oil is an open plastic cage type and often will draw large sawdust particles through it. Easily rectified tho.

Dont get correct pressure. What type of oil do i

A loss of pressure on this type of washer is normally caused by failing water seals and check valves in the pump. You will need to replace both of these using a pump rebuild kit that will be available by contacting the manufacturer of your machine. The pump oil used will be 30W non-detergent.

What type of oil is used to fill the a FAIP PV93501 pump and what quanity.

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.

My oil light is on and oil sensor has been replaced possible oil pump failure?

If the oil is at the proper level and has the proper type of oil in it then it could be a bad pump or a clogged filter. Replace the oil filter and make sure you have the proper oil type in the vehicle. If this doesn't resolve the issue then look at replacing the pump.
