Blocked lance or jet
Clear obstruction in nozzle. See Cleaning a Pressure Washer Nozzle.
Inlet filter blocked
Check and clean inlet filter.
Internal tubes or valves could be worn
Contact a qualified repairer.
Hose too long
Replace it with a shorter hose. To prevent pressure loss, hoses should be no longer than 30m.
Try the following steps:
- There could be air in the system. Try turning off the pump and holding the trigger open for a few moments, before turning it back on. If this does not fix the problem, continue to the following steps.
- Check that the water supply tap is open, and that the inlet valve is not blocked.
- Check if the nozzle on the lance is blocked. You could also try a new lance nozzle.

Check that the mains voltage corresponds to the specification of the machine.
Plug not connected
Connect the plug.
Try another socket.
Change the fuse.
Defective extension cable
Try without the extension cable.

Leave the unit off for a few minutes. If switch does not reset automatically, or continues to trip, contact a qualified repairer.
