Pressure washer - lacks pressure!

I have an excell pressure washer - but the manual is lost somewhere in the house.

Anyway - there is no pressure when it runs. The model is probably 6-7 years old and I use it once to twice a year.

I tried replacing the gun, but to no avail. Water flows up to the gun - so there is no clog.

Just no pressure, like an empty water gun. Engine runs fine.

Any ideas?

Sounds like the pump needs repaired or replaced.

Are you getting water through the gun? You said up to the gun? More info on your model IE: PSI... model # would be of more help. Here is a link for trouble shooting .pdf tips on Excell model pressure washers.

It was the tip of the gun - I guess it was corroded shut...
I figured it out just by tracing the flow (rather it figured me out!)...
Still wasted most of the morning and 2 trips to Lowes.

Anyway - thanks guys!
