Frozen Pump

Frozen Pump on my Pressure Washer

If you think that you have left your pressure washer in the garage with water in it and the temperature has dropped down well bellow zero then chances are that you have damaged the pump, if you have left it out on the forecourt in cold conditions, even with the frost protection that is included with some�industrial pressure washers, fi the temperature has gone down to minus 5 then there is still a chance of damage. If the temperature has gone down to minus 25 like it has in some areas of northern europe (where it doesn't normally), then your pressure washer will be damaged by these kind or temperatures.

Damage such as

  1. Pump�valve crushed by ice
  2. Seals damaged and pushed out of shape, both the main seals and oil seals.
  3. Ceramic pistons cracked
  4. Pump head miss shaped (yes that big lump of metal can get miss shaped and be impossible to reseal)���

Here a general run down of what to do (competent pressure washer engineers only)

  1. First thing to find out is whether the head of the pump is in good condition, run some water throught the pump and check for drip, especially from middle to back of the pump head, if this is so you need a new pump! no point going any further.
  2. Right if thats ok, you need to remove and check the valves, which are located under the 6 big nuts (3 top 3 side), these should open and close with little force and should have no git or rust on them.
    After that, run the pump briefly and see if it gets up to pressure, if its low it the hi low and restop seals which need changing, take the m8 socket nearly out and carefully prise the head of then remove the bolts fully, this help stop damage to the pistons
  3. Now check the seals in the head the white pistons for cracks and the oil in the gearbox side of the pump.
  4. Now what have you found, send us an email and let us know we will advise what you need to do now. Contact Us
  5. If you want use to have a look a repairing this pump, send it to us.
    What we have done with some customers is supplied a new pump and taked the old one in for repair and then supplied it back to them as to use as a spare.
