Imagine washing your deck with a pressure washer when the spray suddenly switches off. Your first thought could be that you’ve run out of gas or need to change the nozzle.
However, in an odd circumstance, this could mean that the switch has stopped working – even though you have plenty of psi left within your machine. There is an internal safety cut-out function inside some pressure washers that automatically cuts out the power supply if they detect a fault. Is it possible to reset them?
Could It Be a Problem with Your PSI?
If you find that your pressure washer’s spray has stopped suddenly, don’t panic! It could be a problem with the switch, but it’s likely that you still have plenty of psi left in your machine. In this case, it is possible to reset the switch.
PSI is the measure of pressure a washer uses to clean. Psi can be increased or decreased to change the power of the spray. Increasing psi might do the trick if you need to clean a stubborn surface. However, if you grow psi too much, you could damage the surface or blow out a fuse. Before adjusting your psi level, it’s important to know how to reset the switch if something goes wrong.
What Causes Your Pressure Washer Switch to Stop Working?
There are a few reasons that your pressure washer switch may have stopped working. It could be as simple as the fuse has blown, or there might be dirt and debris blocking the flow of water to the pump. If this is the case, cleaning the filter should do the trick!
How Do I Reset My Pressure Washer Switch?
Luckily, it’s not too difficult to reset your pressure washer switch. In most cases, all you need to do is unplug the machine, wait a few seconds, and then plug it back in again. If this doesn’t work, try turning off the water supply and restarting it.
If you’re still having trouble, there may be a more serious issue with your machine. In this case, we recommend taking it to an authorized service centre for repair or purchasing a new one from a reputable dealer.
