Squeezing rapidly will cause the auto start feature to
miss an on/off cycle that may prevent it from turning
on while squeezing trigger after rapid squeezing. Use
slow deliberate trigger pulls to avoid such symptoms.
Always test a small area to avoid chance of
damaging the surface.
When using the detergent, fill it with a properly
formulated detergent or cleaner with water ratio
according to instructions on the container.
o DO NOT use thick gel-like detergents, as they will clog
the power washer and can cause damage.
When removing the detergent tank, remove lid and
place finger on both sides of the bottle and squeeze
to get past the knobs on each side and pull out. Press
down firmly when putting it back in place.
\ Ma
The power washer will pull a ratio of water to detergent
of 10:1 or 10 parts water to 1 part detergent. The
detergent concentration can be adjusted by turning the
detergent knob on the front of the machine. Turn it right
for more concentration or turn it left for
less concentration.
Operation Tips
e If you hear the motor run intermittently when the
trigger is not being squeezed, that is normal.
The pump is priming itself so it is ready to operate
when the trigger is squeezed. Turn off the power
washer if not being used after five minutes.
* Keep the nozzle cleaning wire for use in unclogging
the lance nozzle. If you lose the cleaning wire, a
straightened paper clip also works.
How to Avoid Damaging Surfaces
Damage to surfaces being cleaned occurs
because the impact force of the water pressure
exceeds the durability of the surface. Bare wood
can be penetrated; paint can be peeled off, etc.
You can vary the force of your power washer by
1. The angle of the surface being cleaned
2. The distance of the nozzle from the surface
being cleaned
NEVER use a narrow high pressure stream of
water on soft surfaces susceptible to damage.
> Use the 25” angle quick connect nozzle when
cieaning windows. Be sure to place the nozzle
approximately four to five feet away from the
window with the nozzle at forty five degree angle.
Squeeze the trigger and vary the spray pattern
and angle until optimum cleaning efficiency is
Using Power Cord
Easily remove the power cord from side of unit by
swiveling the bottom blue cord hook to the right or
left until it faces up. The power cord then can be
easily slid off of the side of the power washer unit.
е Swivel blue, cord hook back down when ready to
wrap the cord back into place for storage.
* Use detergents designed for power washers.
These can be purchased online at our website Hardware stores or home
centers also have power washer detergents for
different cleaning projects. The cleaning solution
should be the consistency of water in order to
prevent clogging your detergent bottle and nozzle.
= This system applies detergent under low pressure.
The cleaning power of the detergents is enhanced
when applied with low pressure and enough
time is given to break down dirt and grime. The
combination of low pressure and chemical action
is very effective and can be better than scrubbing
if applied properly. ALWAYS spray detergent on a
dry surface. DO NOT pre-soak area. Wetting the
surface first dilutes the detergent and reduces its
cleaning ability. DO NOT allow detergent to dry
on surface. On vertical surfaces being cleaned,
apply detergent to lower surfaces and work your
way up to prevent detergent from causing streaks
in the dirt and grime. Rinse detergent by pressure
washing from bottom up for same reason.
е [fa stain is particularly tough, it may be necessary
to reapply the detergent and use a bristled brush to
scrub the stain. Subsequent power washing after
brushing should successfully complete your cleaning
Cleaning Garden Hose Adapter
* The screens inside the garden hose adapter should
be cleaned periodically. Rinse it with clean water, and
then place it back in the adapter.
Cleaning Nozzles
= A clogged or partially clogged nozzle can cause
significant reduction of water pressure coming out
of the nozzle and/or cause the unit to pulsate while
« Turn off the unit.
* Turn off the water supply to the unit.
> Relieve any pressure trapped in the hose by
squeezing the trigger 2-3 times, and then lock the
spray gun.
* Using the nozzle tip cleaner provided (or an unfolded
paper clip), insert the wire into the nozzle hole and
move back and forth until debris is dislodged.
o Back flush water through the nozzles using garden
hose and highest pressure available (either standard
water nozzle or use your thumb over the nozzle to
create water pressure for back flush).
When your pressure washing session has been
completed, turn off the power switch located on the
front of the power washer. Unplug the power cord
from the outlet. Turn off the water supply. Pull the
trigger on the spray gun 2-3 times to drain out the
excess water and to release any remaining water
pressure. Disconnect the garden hose adapter from
the water inlet. DO NOT allow the power washer to
run with no water flowing through it.
Remove detergent bottle and clean completely.
Residual chemical will stick to the container and can
cause the detergent injector to clog and not function
Remove high pressure hose from spray gun.
Remove lance from the gun. Place the gun in the
holder on the side. Lances are placed into any of the
slots in the back of the unit. Make sure to discard
any remaining detergent from the bottle. Flush the
bottle and nozzle head with fresh water to prevent
Hook the power cord around the L-shaped tabs on
the right side of the machine when facing it.

1. It sounds like your power washer is working just fine. When the water is connected,
the accessories are assembled properly, and the power switch is turned on, the power
washer may turn on for 1 - 2 seconds to prime the pump. It automatically shuts off and
waits for the spray gun trigger to be pressed. When the trigger is pressed, water starts
flowing through the pump. The water sensor in the pump “senses” the moving water
and automatically turns the power washer on.
2. Turn the power switch to off, hold in the trigger on the spray gun, so that you have a
steady stream of water. While you are holding the trigger open on the spray gun, at the
same time, turn the power switch on.
