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 Engine CHECKLIST BEFORE STARTING ENGINE The best way to start your engine-powered pressure washer for the first time is to follow these instructions step-by-step. This starting information also applies whenever you start the engine after you have let the pressure washer sit idle for at least a day. Review the assembly to see if you have performed all of the following. Place the pressure washer in an area close enough to an outside water source that can flow at a rate of 2.5 gallons per minute. Check for properly tightened hose connections (high pressure and water supply) and for tight connections and that there are no kinks, cuts, or damage to the high pressure hose. Check that the high pressure hose is tightly connected to the spray gun and to the pump. See ASSEMBLY section for illustrations. Check that oil has been added to proper level in engine crankcase before trying to start the pressure washer. Connect the garden hose to water inlet on the pressure washer pump and turn on the water. Add proper gasoline to fuel tank. IMPORTANT: Do not run pump without the water supply connected and turned on. You must follow this caution or the pump will be damaged. Provide proper water supply (not to exceed 140°F). Be sure to read Safety Rules and Operation sections before using the pressure washer. Move the Throttle Control Lever to the Fast position Note: For a warm engine, be sure the Throttle Control Lever is in the Fast position. Squeeze the trigger on the spray gun to relieve the air pressure caused by turning ON the water. Water will spew out the gun in a thin stream. This will make it easier to pull start the engine. Release the trigger. 9 Generac Portable Products 1650PSI Pressure Washer How to Stop Pressure Washer Apply the safety latch to the spray gun trigger (Figure 10). Move the Throttle Control Lever to the Slow position. Figure 10 Safety Latch Wait for the engine to idle down. Move the Throttle Control Lever to the Stop position. Safety Latch ON Simply shutting off the engine will not release pressure in the system. Squeeze trigger on the spray gun to relieve pressure in the hose. Note: A small amount of water will squirt out when you release the pressure. How to Use the Adjustable Nozzle To start the engine for the first time: Make sure the engine throttle lever is in the Fast position. 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. Push primer bulb firmly 5 times waiting 2 seconds between each push. 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. 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. Note: Always keep the Throttle Control Lever in the Fast position when operating the pressure washer. To start engine thereafter: Make sure the engine throttle control is in the Fast position. Press the primer bulb 3 times. For a warm engine, do not prime. Slide the nozzle forward when you wish to adjust the spray to low pressure mode. See Figure 11 at the bottom of the next page. Slide the nozzle backward to achieve high pressure. 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. If engine fails to start repeat steps. 10 Generac Portable Products 1650PSI Pressure Washer Point the nozzle toward the ground and press the trigger to test the pattern (Figure 12). If you get the spray nozzle too close, especially using high pressure mode, you may damage the cleaning surface. Figure 12 Testing the spray pattern. Do not get closer than 6 inches when cleaning automobile tires. Applying Detergent with the Adjustable Nozzle IMPORTANT: Use soaps designed specifically for pressure washers. Household detergents could damage the pump. 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: Review the use of adjustable nozzles on Page 11. Prepare the detergent solution as required by the job. Twisting the nozzle adjusts the spray pattern from a narrow pattern to a fan pattern. Hang the detergent solution on hook of the wireform on the handle (Figure 13). For most effective cleaning, keep spray nozzle between 8 to 24 inches away from cleaning surface. 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 1650PSI Pressure Washer Pressure Washer Rinsing Figure 13 Insert the small filter into container of cleaning solution. WARNING: Be extremely careful if you must use the pressure washer from a ladder, scaffolding or any other relatively 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 could also force you to fall if you are too close to the cleaning surface. Place small filter of the clear, detergent siphoning tube into the detergent container. For Rinsing: Slide nozzle backward to high pressure and wait for detergent to clear. CAUTION! Keep the plastic injector tube Keep the spray gun a safe distance from the area you plan to spray. from coming in contact with the hot muffler. This will damage the plastic tube. When inserting the filter into a cleaning agent bottle, route the tube so as to keep it from inadvertently contacting the hot muffler. Apply a high pressure spray to an 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 same overlapping strokes as you used for cleaning. Note: You can also stop detergent from flowing by simply removing siphon from bottle. IMPORTANT: Detergent cannot be applied without the water source turned on. Make sure garden hose is connected to water inlet. Check that high pressure hose is connected to spray gun and pump (see ASSEMBLY), and start engine. Automatic Cool Down System (Thermal Relief) If you run the engine on your pressure washer for 3-5 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. Allow the detergent to soak in between 3-5 minutes before washing and rinsing. For washing, start at lower portion of area to be washed and work upward, using long, even overlapping strokes. 12 Generac Portable Products 1650PSI 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 this manual should be made at least once each season. Check In-Line Filter Refer to Figure 14 and service the in-line filter if it becomes clogged, as follows: 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 fuel-air mixture and help your engine run better and last longer. Figure 14 Check In-Line Filter. Filter Screen Before Each Use Check engine oil level. Lance Check water inlet screen for damage. O-ring Check high pressure hose for leaks. Check detergent inlet hose and filter for damage. 1. Detach gun and lance 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. Check gun and wand assembly for leaks. PRESSURE WASHER MAINTENANCE 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. Check and Clean Inlet Screen 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. Examine screen on the water inlet. Clean if the screen is clogged or replace if screen is damaged. Check High Pressure Hose 4 A high pressure hose can develop leaks from wear, kinking, or abuse. Inspect the 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.

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. 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. Purge Pump of Air and Contaminants 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: To remove the air from the pump, follow these steps: Set up the pressure washer as described in the ASSEMBLY section and connect the water supply. Shut off the engine and turn off the water supply. Remove the wand extension from the gun. Separate the wand extension from the gun. Pull the trigger on the gun and hold. Adjust the wand extension to the stream position. To remove the contaminants from the pump, follow these steps: Remove nozzle from the end of the wand extension (Figure 14) using a 2mm or 5/64 allen wrench (like the one included in the kit). Set up the pressure washer as described in the ASSEMBLY section, and connect the water supply. Use the wire included in the kit (Figure 14) or a small paper clip to free the foreign materials clogging or restricting the nozzle. Remove the nozzle attachment from the gun. Start the engine according to instructions in OPERATION section. Figure 14 Remove and clean nozzle. Squeeze the trigger on the gun and hold. When the water supply is steady and constant, engage the safety latch and refasten the nozzle attachment. Cleaning Chemical Injector Hose. If you have used the chemical injector hose you must flush it with clean water before stopping the engine. Place Chemical Injector Hose in a bucket full of clean water. Flush for five minutes. Shut off the engine. IMPORTANT: Simply shutting OFF engine will not release pressure in the system. When engine has shut down, squeeze the trigger on the gun to relieve the pressure in the hose. 14 Generac Portable Products 1650PSI Pressure Washer PREPARING THE UNIT FOR STORAGE Remove additional debris by back flushing water supply through wand extension (Figure 15). Back flush between 30 to 60 seconds. Turn wand extension to stream spray and move nozzle from low to high while flushing. Water should not remain in the unit for long periods of time. Sediments of minerals can deposit on pump parts and freeze pump action. If you do not plan to use the pressure washer for more than 30 days, follow this procedure: Figure 15 Backflush the nozzle. 1. Flush detergent hose by placing the injector filter into a pail of clean water while running pressure washer with nozzle in low pressure mode. Flush for five minutes. 2.
