Thank you for your question.

I am sorry you are having a problem with the pressure washer. From what I can tell from the details, the pressure washer runs fine as long as the trigger is pulled but will die if the handle is release. If this is the case, I suspect the unloader valve in the pump is stuck. The unloader releases the pressure in the pump when the handle is not pulled. The unloader has a check ball that can stick. I recommend taking the unloader apart and cleaning the parts with a cloth and WD-40. Then reassemble the unloader and check the operation. If it still does not release the pressure I recommend replacing the unloader assembly.

Please let me know if you need further assistance on repairing the pressure washer.

Here is a link to order any parts you need. Sears Parts Direct .

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services .

Thank you for using Manage my life.

Q:

how do I change oil in my pressure washer pump

A:

You should not need to change the oil in the pump. It uses 4 oz. of 15W30 synthetic oil. This oil will not break down and need to be changed as a regular maintenance task. If the pump is working properly and producing proper water pressure, I do recommend that you drain and replace the oil.

If you do need to replace the oil for some reason, there is an oil drain plug on the bottom of the pump. The oil can be filled through a plug on the top. You can view the parts list diagram for your pump in the owner's manual. Here is a link for the owner's manual on this pressure washer in case you need it: Owner's Manual .

If you do not feel confident in changing the oil in this pressure washer yourself, then you can have it changed by a Sears technician. Here is a Sears Service link that will provide the nearest drop-off locations: Sears Home Services .

Q:

what type of oil and how much is needed for my sears power washer model 919.762000

A:

By your description, the clear and yellow ports should be on the engine. These engines are used for various models and will have 2 ports. The port with the yellow cap is not used. Use the top clear port and this engine uses 30 weight detergent oil. Fill it to the full level on the dip stick (see instructions included).

Normally the pumps use 80w90 weight oil and only 285 ml. If you need more assistance, please resubmit your question, with additional details.

I CANNOT TELL YOU HOW DISAPPOINTED I AM WITH SEARS. AFTER GETTING THE WRONG ADVICE FROM YOUR SO CALLED "EXPERTS" ON THE AMOUNT OF OIL AND THE PROPER WEIGHT OF OIL TO USE ON MY CRAFTSMAN POWERWASHER, I AM OUT A 6HP TECUMSEH ENGINE. I TOOK THE EXPERT ADVICE (SEE ABOVE) FROM SCOTT D. AND NOW THE ENGINE IS DOWN. BECAUSE OF THE 80W90 WEIGHT OIL AND THE AMOUNT OF IT, THE LOAD WAS TO MUCH ON THE ENGINE AND TOOK THE TEETH OFF THE CAMSHAFT GEAR, (SEE PICTURE). SEARS FEELS THAT THEY SHOULD ONLY HAVE TO PAY 50% OF THE PARTS OR LABOR, NOT BOTH.THE REPAIR QUOTE WAS $115.00 AND THEY FEEL THEY ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR $25.00. THAT IS ABSURD, SINCE THEY ARE THE REASON WHY MY ENGINE WENT DOWN. NEVER BUYING FROM SEARS AGAIN.
