Troubleshooting of Troy Bilt Pressure Washer
Pump Chatters, Lack Pressure, Produces Erratic Spray or Water With Low Pressure
Check the spray tip of your Troy Bilt pressure washer and in case it is a low-pressure nozzle, consider replacing it with a high-pressure spray tip. Remember that the spray tip screws off in an anticlockwise way.
Check and clear the water inlet for blockages. To clear out smaller debris, using a compressor, release air in short intervals.
Confirm that the unit is receiving a sufficient flow of water through the inlet hose. Ensure the hose is not kinked and that the water is not very hot. High temperatures of water (above 100 degrees Fahrenheit) will result in poor performance by the machine.
Check and clean the inlet hose screen as blockages on this point affect the pump pressure. Remember that the screen is positioned on the pump water inlet.
Ensure that the spray gun has no leaks. Check at the point where the gun connects to the hose. Confirm that the trigger spring functions properly by pressing the red button on the gun. In case of any of these errors, replace the gun.
Engine Lacks Power, Fails to Start or Performs Erratically
Check if the engine rocker switch is set “ON”. Remember that the switch is positioned on the side of the unit.
Ensure that there is enough gasoline in the power washer and fill it up, if there is a need.
Confirm the oil level and fill it to the indicated level, in case it has gone down. you can find the oil dipstick on the top of the unit near the air intake. Remember if you are using your pressure in extremely dirty conditions, then you will need to change your oil regularly.
Make sure the air filter is free of dirt and debris. Replace it if there is a need. To check the air filter, slide the cleaner lever on the filter compartment to the “Unlock” position and tilt the filter cover downwards.
Check and ensure that the spark plug wire is firmly connected to the spark plug.
Detergent Fails to Mix With Spray
Confirm the detergent siphoning tube is submerged in the detergent deep to the tip of the tube.
Check if there are any clogs and cracks on the siphoning tube. In case you need to replace it refer to the manufacturer’s instructions.
Replace the low-pressure tip on the spray run with a high-pressure one.
Check and confirm that the detergent ball is not lodged in the siphoning system. To do it, turn off the washer, squeeze the trigger on the spray gun to release any built-up pressure, take out the siphoning hose from the barbed fitting on the pump and insert a thin object such as an Allen wrench into the barbed fitting until you feel resistance.
Apply slight pressure until you feel the ball come loose. Reinsert the siphoning hose into the barbed fitting.
Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
Can I add motor oil in my pressure washer pump?
Motor oil is not ideal for use because pressure washer pumps lack an oil filter and motor oil may contain impurities. This might end up damaging the pump in the long run. Non-detergent oils are a suitable choice.
What is non-detergent oil?
Non-detergent oil ‘’sticks’’ contaminants to the sidewalls and valleys of an engine thereby preventing damage that may occur on the bearings due to dirt in the oil. Non-detergent oils were common before machines began using oil filters. Prolonged use on engines results in a thick ‘’sludge’’ buildup.
Can I lay my pressure washer on its side?
It is advisable to always keep your power washer in an upright position. Laying it on its side may result in the inner and outer tubs bumping against each other. This can loosen support pads or damage the suspension.
How often can I change the oil in my Troy-Bilt pressure washer?
Under normal circumstances, replace the oil every 200 to 250 work hours (about every three months) if you use your washer regularly, and at least every year if not. Can any pump work with my pressure washer?
Can I use any pump on my pressure washer machine?
You cannot replace your pump with any pump, because they may not match. Verify if your pressure washer uses a triplex or an axial pump and choose the right one.
