  • How do I fix broken assist handle on pressure washer?

    I have a Ridgid 3000 pressure washer. THe assist handle on the gun is loose and swings all over the place. I tighten it down but it seems that the collar under the handle screw is loose.

    Does anybody have any idea how I can fix it?

    A little confused.

    Are you saying that the bolt embedded in the handle has loosened? This would mean that as you tighten it, the handle continues to turn in your hand while the bolt doesn't.

    Or is it that when you thread the handle onto the aluminum collar and tighten it, the collar+handle doesn't lock into place against the sprayer body? If so, this might mean that the bolt is too short, and is not getting enough penetration to press into the sprayer body.
