The number one cause of low or no pressure when using a pressure washer is a blocked or worn nozzle. Blocked nozzles will prevent water from escaping, while a worn nozzle will allow too much water to pass through, causing the pressure to drop.
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.
Using an old, worn-out nozzle is a common cause of lost pressure, and also has one of the simplest fixes. All you need to do is replace the nozzle and make sure you`re using the proper size. Don`t go by the color of the nozzle, make sure you check the orifice size.
A Damaged Gasket

The Problem: Your pressure cooker isn`t building up enough pressure. The Cause: Pressure cookers contain a gasket, which can sustain damage for a variety of reasons or simply wear out over time. As a result, your appliance won`t be able to build up enough pressure.

How Do I Tell If My Unloader Valve is Bad? In most occurrences, the first symptom of an unloader valve going bad is no pressure from the wand when the trigger is pressed. This happens when the unloader valve gets stuck open and does not allow water to enter the hose and trigger.
If the pump is leaking, the cause may be minor and easy to repair. Check the seals, packings, and O-rings for wear. These can easily be replaced, saving you the cost of a new pump. However, major leaks such as the ones caused by cracked or damaged plungers, can lead to pump failures.
As is the case with any over-pressurized vessel, the vessel fails at the weakest point. Often this results in the lid of the pressure cooker exploding upward, spewing hot steam, liquid, and food contents in a bomb-like manner. The liquid can cause horrific second-and third-degree burns to anyone near the cooker.
Once it reaches pressure the float valve will pop up, the Instant Pot will beep once, and the cook time will begin to count down from 5 minutes. You might notice hissing sounds and some steam escaping from the steam release valve or float valve hole while the pressure builds – this is normal.
You Won`t Be Able To Clean Anything!

Obviously, you won`t be able to use your pressure washer without the water supply turned on.

Air Flow Restriction

If your coil is a “pancake” style, chances are the restriction of air flow is caused by build up. Soot can create a block, causing the unused fuel to burn hotter than it should be. If you are having this issue, clean off your coil.

A worn nozzle on the spray gun. A clogged water inlet filter (20). Worn O-rings on the bypass valve (19), or a bypass valve hanging up. High-pressure valve (43-46) fails to function properly.

Wont power up
ANSWER : Dear Sir,
That white part is probably the capacitor. Yes it could go wrong. But you said it does not complete circuit….this means it is good. To test a capacitor, use a volt meter (analogue better)…touch both ends…then change quickly the ends of the volt meter to touch again the ends of the capacitor…it should give a quick reading. The best way to remove any doubt regarding if a capacitor is good or not…is to replace with a new one.

Bad pressure switch
ANSWER : Do not use different springs
