Is your Campbell Hausfeld product acting up?
Has your air impact wrench stopped working? Maybe your air compressor just isn't functioning the way it used to. Here are some simple DIY fixes:
- If your Campbell Hausfeld wrench is suddenly running slow, you may have a leak in the air hose. Inspect the hose thoroughly, and if it's damaged, consider replacing.
- If your Campbell Hausfeld air compressor is discharging oil as well as air, check the discharge and suction valves. These may need to be replaced.
- If your Campbell Hausfeld airless paint sprayer is leaking paint, check the piston rod. This can wear out over time. You might need to disassemble the fluid pump to access the piston rod.
Common pressure washer issues
Here are a few common issues with pressure washers and what may cause them:
- Relief valve is leaking—The pressure relief valve may open periodically if the engine is running but the wand isn't used. This is normal and designed to prevent the tank pressure from getting too high. However, if it happens constantly, then the relief valve may be faulty.
- Weak spray—A weak spray stream can be caused by dirt or debris clogging the hose or spray tip. If the spray is still weak after cleaning it out, then it's likely due to a poorly performing washer pump.
- Excessive spray—If the pressure washer is spraying too hard, your pressure washer may have a faulty pressure regulator or unloader valve, both of which control the spray pressure.
- Engine won't start—If you're unable to pull the starter cord, then it's likely because of a faulty recoil starter that should be replaced. If the engine itself doesn't run, then the carburetor may be clogged or broken.
- Smoke coming out of exhaust—If you see smoke coming out of the exhaust, it's likely that the engine is overfilled with oil, and it will have to be drained to the proper level.
The following five parts might need to be repaired or replaced:
- Outlet tube—Water exits the pressurized tank through the outlet tube. If the tube is cracked or leaking, it will need to be replaced to prevent further leaks.
- Washer pump—The washer pump generates the necessary water pressure during use. If the pressure washer isn't getting any pressure, replace the washer pump.
- Pump head gasket—The head gasket sits between the engine and cylinder heads. It relies on a sealed connection so that the carburetor has maximum compression. If the gasket is broken, the carburetor won't work efficiently.
- Water hose—The water hose connects the spray nozzle to the outlet tube. The hose may need to be replaced if it's cracked or leaking at all.
- Water inlet screen—The water inlet screen filters incoming water to protect the pump against any pieces of dirt or debris that may clog the pump. If the screen is broken or too dirty to be cleaned, it may need to be replaced.
