  • 3000 pressure washer on/off switch

    just bought the RD80701 pressure washer Friday, used it a couple of hours, no problem. Today the on/off switch does not seem to work. If I put a lot of pressure toward the off position, it will kill engine, but engine will start with the switch in the off position. HD offered to replace it, but it is a hassle bringing it down there. Is there a quick fix? It looks like the switch is just held on with 2 philips screws... also, the right hand wheel axle cotter pin keeps coming off???

    I would recommend you take it back if they will replace it. The actual repair wtty on that is done by the engine manufacturer and they are no where near as forgiving as Ridgid.

      Well, since HD offered, I figured no risk in taking switch off. It is a simple grounding switch, and the screw had vibrated enough so that the connection was loose. Problem fixed. Also the bolt what holds on the handle "bumper" vibrated loose. Other than than, all seems to be well.
