  • RIDGID 3300 Pressure washer

    I just purchased a Ridgid 3300 pressure washer and assembled it this morning. After carfully following the directions and filling with oil and gas the unit will not start. The engine shut Off/On knob is broken but appears to be in the on position. When I pull the cord the engine spits for 2 to 5 seconds than shuts off. Can anyone offer a suggestion on what the trouble might be? Thanks

    Joe,

    You need to release the pressure in the wand/gun before you pull start the motor.

    Cheers!

      Thanks Freddy. Pressue was released and engine still will not start. I replaced the shut off switch to insure it is in the on positiion and engine attempts to start but only coughs for a few seconds then shuts off.

        try holding the trigger to the wand while pulling the rope. Let the engine rpm stabilize before letting go of the trigger. Thats how I start my 3000psi machine. Be care not to aim the wand at anyone.

          Check the oil. I will almost guarentee you that it is low. They wont start or run for very long if there is not enough oil.
