Coleman 2400 PSI pressure washer SPRAYS OUT WATER out of TWO “exit holes” in the original metal housing right after the water hose connection = ?!? One hole is directly on the bottom and (facing from the back) the other is at 3 o’clock or so = ?!? This water sprays out of these two holes immediately (and constantly) whenever the hose water arrives at the machine. It keeps spraying out when I start the pressure washer. It seems (of course) that I’m losing all kinds of water and thus water pressure, correct? The subsequent hose wand spray force does NOT seem very strong, nor effective to me! ))-
Experienced gardeners share their insights in answering this question :
Usually, there are spaces between the pump and head portion of the pump. This space is not sealed and will allow water leaking past the seals to come out. There may be a seal kit available, however I have had better luck just changing out the whole pump. There are many available on ebay. Search for one that will use same mount and hoses. Once the seals are gone, the pump will never be the same (may nickle and dime you the death).

How to Identify and Fix Common Gardening Problems ?

We provide a variety of viewpoints on how to identify and fix common gardening problems. Our sources include academic articles, blog posts, and personal essays from experienced gardeners :

The main reason which may cause the pressure washer to leak from the inside is if the cylinder head – either cracked or failed. This is often caused by the pressure washer being stored in an area that can freeze during winter.
If you notice water dripping into your washer even though it`s turned off, you may have an issue with the washer inlet valve. It allows the water to flow into the tub. Check the valve on the back of the machine to find out if it`s leaking.
This occurs when the Needle Packing Nut is too tight, compressing the Needle Packing too tightly around the Needle. This occurs when the Needle Packing nut is too loose. Remember that the needle packing must be tight enough to prevent any leakage of paint material.
Leaks that appear to come from underneath the washer are often coming from the door, safety air vent, or the back of the unit. The leak would have started during the wash cycle and accumulated underneath the washing machine.
Water left in a paint sprayer will corrode and ruin the pump! Always circulate a storage fluid through the system after cleaning. You can use a “pump preserver” such as Graco Pump Armor or just plain, clean mineral spirits. A quart of ready to use product is usually sufficient for most paint sprayers.
Usually, leaks at the top of the hose are caused by a deteriorating washer. Before using a new hose, locate the washer and make sure it`s properly inserted into the coupling. Inspect the washer when you take your hose out of storage or put it into storage each season. Check the washers on your hose accessories, too.
The drain pump is faulty.

Drain pumps are susceptible to clogs, and they can malfunction just like any other mechanical appliance component. If you notice your washing machine leaking or making strange noises in addition to standing water in the drum, there`s likely an issue with your pump.

The valves for the supply of hot and cold water are typically located behind the washing machine. They can easily be turned off by turning them clockwise until you`re unable to turn them any further. If you have a gate valve connection this is a different process as they are designed to be fully open or fully closed.

Kranzle electric washer will not suck up soap
ANSWER : Hi, if it has a chemical injector on the machine then the pressure at the lance will have to be lowered for it to pull in soap. it works on a similar principle to how carburetors on cars pull in fuel, bernouli principle. high pressure at one side of an orifice going to low pressure at the other side which causes a negative pressure ( vacuum) which should pull in the soap. there should be a non return valve at the orifice (hole) which prevents the water back feeding into the soap container, it is quite common for this valve to get stuck, it is just a ball, spring and o ring , and the ball sticks to the o ring. if it is this system then take the soap pick up pipe off the injector and just push the ball off it’s seat with a bit of wire.If it is a high pressure soap system then that is different, but they usually work with an injector in my experience.try taking the high pressure hose off the front off the machine and running it, if it has an injector on it it should pull in plenty off soap.hope this helps ,andy
