Oil Leak in Pressure Washer purchased from Sunbrite
Permalink  
 


Hello,

I've been using this very nice pressure washer that I purchased from you guys in the beginning on 2010, and I have an oil leak that I need some help with. The leak is coming from the part that the oil filter screws on to, specifically where the black plug with 2 connectors is located. This piece rotates freely if I remove the connectors, but I don't know if it is supposed to or not. Also, it only leaks when it is running, if that helps any.The filter is not leaking, although I thought that is what it was originally.

I've attached a picture, please let me know what you think at your earliest convenience.

 

The unit is a 3500 PSI, 5.5 GPM pressure washer skid, hot water. It was purchased with as a starter package full built with a trailer and a 165 gallon tank.

 

Thank you.

Take it to any type of pressure washer supply store and see if they can get you a replacement part or go online to the maker of the machine. Every pressure washer is different so I can't say.

That appears to be the "low oil" cut off switch, or the sending unit for the oil pressure guage. You could possibly obtain a new one at a auto parts store. Most of those type switches are the same. You could also remove it on a temp basis and install a plug in the opening on the engine. May have to jumper the wires to get it to run if it is the low oil cutoff .

FYI; It does not really matter where you bought it from, any piece of equipment is subject to a part failing due to wear & tear and/or use/abuse.

That switch locks the burner off when the engine isn't running. But there's a low voltage inhibitor in the box on the burner to do the same thing. You could jump the wires together, remove the switch, and put a 1/8" pipe plug in the hole.

Thanks guys, I'll do that today.

Gary, I love this machine, that's why I said it's very nice! It's been and still is a dependable unit. I just put this title so they would have some history when they saw this.

Tracy, you're the man. Can I just pull the part out or is there some other way to remove it? Just asking so I don't do anything destructive..

just unhook the wires. (mark them so you know which way to hook back up) and inscrew the metal collar. Should just pull out.
