With the water at the hose bib on the side of the house turn on the unit and see if any water flows through. If not, clean the nozzle as it gets plugged up when not regularly used. Also be sure the REST button on the GFCI plug is pushed in.

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 :

A defective spark plug or ignition coil may need to be replaced. Your power washer`s spark plug is essential to keep it running since it ignites the air/fuel mixture. If your spark plug is dirty, cracked, or defective, it could be the reason your power washer won`t start.
PLEASE NOTE: You should always press the RESET button on the GFCI before using the pressure washer.
If the pressure washer does not start, then the first thing to check is the fuse in the plug. The reading you`re looking for is the same as it would be when connecting the two probes of the multimeter together (as you can see in the example of this video, this fuse is actually fine).
Each time the power cord is plugged in to an outlet, the Reset button on the GFCI module must be pressed down to connect to electricity. Check to see if the Reset button has been pressed. Next, confirm the small plastic window below the Reset button shows RED in the window.
Replace the fuse with a 13A fuse anything lower will blow straight away. Do not replace fuse with anything other than a 13A fuse as this is a health and safety hazard.
Here`s how it works, devices from the Home & Garden range can be repaired in our repair centres. Machines within their warranty period are repaired free of charge subject to our Home & Garden terms and conditions.
It Can Harm The Unit

Without water to cool and lubricate it, the pump will work harder than it should, causing it to wear down quickly. This can happen even with just a few seconds of running the pressure washer without the water being turned on.

There are 2 fuses for the wiper/washer system. If your windshield wipers work, then they are both good. One fuse is located in the under-hood fuse block (wiper fuse #14 , 25amp). The second fuse is located on the body control module, which is located inside the center console, behind the panel on the right side of it.
Pressure Washer Pump Age and Usage

Have you gotten many years and hours of use from the pump? If so, it may be time to replace it. However, if it is a newer pump, repair might be best. A good rule of thumb is if the repair costs more than 50% the value of a replacement pump, it is likely time to replace it.

The fuse is inside the plug… may have to remove both covers.. However, if you get a red light, it is not the fuse, and the plug can go bad if water gets in, in which case you may have to replace it..
To reset the electronic controls on your washer, shut off the circuit breaker or fuse to the washer or unplug the washer for 2 minutes. For models that have a timer control knob, turn the knob around and back to any position other than final spin for the interrupted cycle. Then, restore power.
