PRESSURE WASHER TROUBLE SHOOTER
       Tech Tips and Troubleshooting
 

       Listed below is the problem you selected with causes, solutions and discussion

WATER IN PUMP

Operate under cover if rain. 

Avoid spraying top of pump.  

Check for water entering filler cap.

Even a minor amount of moisture in the crankcase oil will cause the oil to go a milky color.  This is never a good thing for the moving parts in the crankcase.  

If you are operating your pressure washer in a high humidity area it's possible ,through heating and cooling of the pump, that moisture in the crankcase will condense. Change the oil and try to move your machine to a location with less humidity.  

If the problem persists check out the index for other causes of milky oil

There is a small hole in the dipstick to allow for expansion and contraction in the crankcase.  If you operate in the rain or wash your pump water could enter this hole, causing the oil to go milky. Never plug this hole to prevent moisture from entering the crankcase.  If you do, the pressure created by expansion in the chamber could blow out your oil seals.  

 SOME OF THESE OPERATIONS CAN BE EXTREMELY DANGEROUS.  IF YOU DO NOT HAVE SUFFICIENT TRAINING IN THESE PROCEDURES, WE RECOMMEND YOU SEEK ASSISTANCE FROM A 
QUALIFIED TECHNICIAN
