just the other day i was clearing a line with the jetter and after running it non-stop untill 200 gallons of water(about 20 minutes) went through it, i went around the corner to check the water level of the jetter and noticed smoke coming from between the pulley area and the pump!!!!!!.....DAM!!!!!....i immediately called Greg of drainmedic and he says his has never done this before.....i assumed that it was coming from the metal box next/attached to the pump....in the metal box contains the pullys....i did have the jetter going at FULL THROTTLE with the unloader valve tightened all the way down..i was going approx 2500psi....and it also made a funny/winding noise when it started to smoke......NOW if i throttled down to 1800 or 1700 p.s.i. the noise and smoke went away.......the next job i did the same day i jetted a residential sewer and throttled iot up to 2500 p.s.i. for about 10 minutes and it didnt make any sound or i didnt see any smoke...the jetter is just 10 months old and under warranty.. i was just wondering what would make it do that....any help much appreciated.
