If you have any problems operating your pressure washer, please call the pressure washer helpline at 1-800-270-1408. Safety Latch ON You have assembled your high pressure washer and have prepared the engine for starting. You are now ready to clean your car, boat or the outside of a building or whatever you plan to clean. How to Start Your Engine Note: This is a multiposition choke. Note: For a warm engine, be sure the Throttle Control Lever is in the Fast position and the Choke Lever is in the Run position. The best way to start your enginepowered pressure washer for the first time is to follow these instructions stepbystep. This starting information also applies whenever you start the engine after you have let the pressure washer sit idle for at least a day. Grasp rope handle and pull slowly until you feel some resistance. Then pull cord rapidly to overcome compression, prevent kickback and start the engine. Let rope return to starter slowly. This pressure washer requires a water source that flows at least 2.5 gallons per minute. Do not attempt to siphon water from a nonpressurized container. Place the pressure washer close enough to an outside water source so that no more than 50' of garden hose is needed. Note: Always keep the Throttle Control Lever in the Fast position when operating the pressure washer. When the engine starts, gradually move the Choke Lever from one position to the next until it is in the Run position. Check that the high pressure hose is tightly connected to the spray gun and to the pump. See ASSEMBLY section for illustrations. If after 3 pulls the engine fails to start, disengage the spray gun safety latch, squeeze the trigger to relive water pressure, reengage the spray gun safety latch, move the Choke Lever to the Run position and pull the recoil starter handle rapidly (Max. 3 pulls). Connect the garden hose to water inlet on the pressure washer pump and turn the water on all the way. IMPORTANT: Do not run pump without the water supply connected and turned on. You must follow this caution or the pump will be damaged. How to Stop Your Pressure Washer Squeeze the trigger on the spray gun to relieve air pressure caused by turning ON the water. Water will spew out the gun in a thin stream. Continue to hold trigger until you have a steady stream of water and no air remains.This will make it easier to pull start the engine. Release the trigger. Move the Throttle Control Lever to the Slow position. Wait for the engine to idle down. Move the Throttle Lever Lever to the Stop position. Simply shutting off the engine will not release pressure in the system. Squeeze trigger on the spray gun to relieve pressure in the hose. Apply the safety latch to the spray gun trigger (Figure 10). Note: A small amount of water will squirt out when you release the pressure. Move the Throttle Control Lever to the Fast position. Set Choke Lever to Choke position. 10 Generac Portable Products 2000 PSI High Pressure Washer How to Use the Adjustable Nozzle and Adjust Pressure Figure 12 Pressure control knob. Pressure Control Knob You now should know how to START your pressure washer and how to STOP it. The information in this section will tell you how to adjust the spray pattern and apply detergent or any other cleaning chemicals. DANGER! Never adjust spray pattern when spraying. Never put hands in front of nozzle to adjust spray pattern. On the end of your spray gun is a nozzle that you can slide forward and backward and that you can also twist from side to side. With the adjustable nozzle you can adjust the spray pattern to be either high pressure or low pressure. You can also adjust the spray so it is concentrated in a stream pattern or expanded into a fan pattern. Point the nozzle toward the ground and press the trigger to test the pattern. Twisting the nozzle adjusts the spray pattern from a narrow pattern to a fan pattern. For most effective cleaning, keep spray nozzle between 8 to 24 inches away from cleaning surface. Slide the nozzle forward when you wish to adjust the spray to low pressure mode (Figure 11). Slide the nozzle backward to achieve high pressure. If you get the spray nozzle too close, especially using high pressure mode, you may damage the cleaning surface. Located on the side of the pump is a pressure control knob. You can increase and decrease the pressure of the spray by turning the knob clockwise or counterclockwise respectively (Figure 12). Do not get closer than 6 inches when cleaning automobile tires. Figure 11 Using the adjustable nozzle. Slide Nozzle Backward for High Pressure Mode Slide Nozzle Forward for low pressure mode and detergent application Twist nozzle counterclockwise for fan spray pattern 11 Twist nozzle clockwise for narrow spray pattern Generac Portable Products 2000 PSI High Pressure Washer Applying Detergent with the Adjustable Nozzle CAUTION! Keep the plastic injector tube from coming in contact with the hot muffler. When inserting the filter into a cleaning agent bottle, route the tube so as to keep it from inadvertently contacting the hot muffler. IMPORTANT: Use soaps designed specifically for pressure washers. Household detergents could damage the pump. Note: After using chemical injection, you must flush the hose and the pump with clear water to prevent chemicals from drying and clogging the chemical injection system. See Cleaning Chemical Injector System on page 14. IMPORTANT: You must attach all hoses before you start the engine. Starting the engine without all the hoses connected and without the water turned ON will damage the pump. To apply detergent follow these steps: Pressure Washer Rinsing Review the use of adjustable nozzles on Page 11. Prepare the detergent solution as instructed. WARNING! Be extremely careful if you must Hang the detergent solution on hook of the wireform on the handle as shown (Figure 13). use the pressure washer from a ladder, scaffolding or any other unstable location. Pressure in a running washer builds as you climb. When you press the trigger, the recoil from the initial spray could force you to fall. The high pressure spray is also dangerous if you are too close to the cleaning surface. Figure 13 Insert the small filter into container of cleaning solution. For Rinsing: Slide nozzle backward to high pressure, squeeze trigger and wait for detergent to clear. Keep the spray gun a safe distance from the area you plan to spray. Place small filter end of the chemical injecting tube into the detergent container (Figure 13). Apply a high pressure spray to a small area and then check the surface for damage. If no damage is found, you can assume it is okay to continue cleaning. Slide the adjustable nozzle forward to low pressure mode. Detergent cannot be applied with nozzle in high pressure position. Start at top of area to be rinsed, working down with the same overlapping strokes used for cleaning. IMPORTANT: Detergent cannot be applied without the water source turned on. Note: You can also stop detergent from flowing by simply removing siphon from bottle. Make sure garden hose is connected to water inlet. Check that high pressure hose is connected to spray gun and pump, and start engine. Automatic Cool Down System (also called Thermal Relief) If you run the engine on your pressure washer for 35 minutes without pressing the trigger on the spray gun, circulating water in the pump can reach a temperature between 140145°F. When the water reaches this temperature, the automatic cool down system engages and cools the pump by discharging the warm water onto the ground. This system prevents internal damage to the pump. Apply detergent to a dry surface, starting from the bottom and working up to avoid streaking. Allow the detergent to soak in for 35 minutes before washing and rinsing. Reapply if necessary to prevent drying. For washing, start at lower portion of area to be washed and work upward, using long, even, overlapping strokes. 12 Generac Portable Products 2000 PSI High Pressure Washer GENERAL MAINTENANCE RECOMMENDATIONS DANGER! Water spraying from a leak is capable of injecting material into skin. Inspect hose each time before using it. Never repair a high pressure hose. Replace it with another hose that meets the maximum pressure rating of your pressure washer. The warranty of the high pressure washer does not cover items that have been subjected to operator abuse or negligence. To receive full value from the warranty, operator must maintain high pressure washer as instructed in this manual. Check Detergent Hose Examine the filter on the detergent hose and clean if clogged. Hose should fit tightly on barbed fitting. Examine hose for leaks or tears. Replace the filter or hose if either is damaged. Some adjustments will need to be made periodically to properly maintain your high pressure washer. All adjustments in the Service and Adjustments section of the engine owners manual should be made at least once each season. Check Gun and Wand Once a year you should clean or replace the spark plug and clean or replace the air filter and check the gun and wand assembly for wear. A new spark plug and clean air filter assure proper fuelair mixture and help your engine run better and last longer. Examine hose connection to gun and make sure it is secure. Test trigger by pressing it and making sure it springs back into place when you release it. Put safety latch in ON position and test trigger. You should not be able to press trigger. Before Each Use Check In-Line Filter Check engine oil level. Refer to Figure 14 and service the in-line filter if it becomes clogged, as follows: Check water inlet screen for damage. Check high pressure hose for leaks. Figure 14 Service in-line filter Check detergent inlet hose and filter for damage. Check gun and wand assembly for leaks. Filter Screen PRESSURE WASHER MAINTENANCE Lance O-ring Check and Clean Inlet Screen 1. Detach gun from high pressure hose. Detach lance from gun and remove o-ring and screen from lance. Flush the screen, gun, and lance with clean water to clear debris. Examine screen on the water inlet. Clean if the screen is clogged or replace if screen is damaged. Check High Pressure Hose 2. If the screen is damaged, the o-ring kit contains a replacement in-line filter screen and an o-ring. If undamaged, reuse screen. High pressure hose can develop leaks from wear, kinking, or abuse. Inspect hose each time before using it. Check for cuts, leaks, abrasions or bulging of cover, damage or movement of couplings. If any of these conditions exist, replace hose immediately. 3. Place the in-line filter screen into the threaded end of the lance. Direction does not matter. Push the screen in with the eraser end of a pencil until it rests flat at the bottom of the opening. Take care to not bend the screen. 13 Generac Portable Products 2000 PSI High Pressure Washer Nozzle Maintenance 4. Place the o-ring into the recess. Push the o-ring snugly against the in-line filter screen. If the adjustable nozzle becomes restricted or clogged with foreign materials, such as dirt, excessive pump pressure may develop. If this nozzle becomes partially clogged, it can cause a pulsing sensation during use. This generally is not a pump related problem, but rather a clogged or partially restricted adjustable nozzle. 5. Assemble the lance to the spray gun, as described earlier in this manual. Purge Pump of Air and Contaminants To remove the air from the pump, follow these steps: If the adjustable nozzle becomes clogged or partially restricted, immediately clean the nozzle with the kit included with your pressure washer by following these instructions: Set up the pressure washer as described in the ASSEMBLY section (starting on page 6) and connect the water supply.
