Gas Leaks From Carb
I had the same result reported by Oliver in June 2012 post. After assembly, upon turning gas control switch to begin flow, gas started draining from the carb. The only way to stop it was to switch back to close position.

Simpson was helpful and gave name of local warranty servicer -- or return to big box store (which is what I did). Very disappointing since unit was so easy to assemble and instructions were very clear.
Pros: Price
Cons: Low Quality, Leaks Gas

Laurence,
A quick thing to check is to look under the carb where the fuel hose connects. There is a small wire spring clip that holds the hose in place that can shake loose during shipment.

Sometimes all it takes is to secure the fuel hose with the clip.

Two Strikes And It's Out
We purchased this unit at a warehouse store for use at a public school. Used the unit every week.

Ran great however after 9 months the bolts attaching the water pump sheared off for no apparent reason. We took it to have it serviced and were told it would have to have the water pump replaced because the bolts could not be removed without a great effort.

We decided to return the unit to the warehouse store who took it back with no problem. We then got a brand new unit - same model,... more

Gas Engine & Pvc Hose Do Not Mix
The engineer who chose PVC as the outer cover for the hose, chose badly ! IF at anytime the hose contacts any part of the engine, it will melt the hose in a split second !

The next folly is the coupling ends are not standard 14mm, or even 15mm... but both! So, if you wanted to upgrade to a more heat resistant hose... YOU CAN'T ! You are stuck with the same junk hose. And, you have to purchase it from Simpson, since.. remember, the couplings are proprietary !! Buyer beware.

Frank,
All of the pressure washers we sell use high pressure hoses that will be damaged when they come in contact with a hot muffler.

The Simpson connectors should be either standard M22 (22mm metric) or 3/8" NPT threads.

Disappointed
We had the Simpson 3000psi/gas/2.4GPM purchased from Menards. Menards worked with us but Simpson did not (even hung up on us & we were being polite!) The unit had to have a new pump before the first use, covered by warranty but we had to take it to the shop & wait to use it then.

On the 5th use, weeks later, it leaked water out the bottom everywhere! Under warranty supposedly but Simpson would not work with us. Would not recomend this unit or company.
Pros: Price, Easy To Use
Cons: Durability, Low Quality, Unreliable, Poor Customer Servicerepair

Trying Number Two
I purchased this unit at a warehouse store; assembly and start up was easy. It worked great the first two small jobs- a deck and front porch. However, early in the third job the engine started pouring out blue smoke while under a load

After shutting down the unit and checking it for a problem, the engine restarted, but was leaking oil out the crankshaft. It appeared to have blown the crank oil seal. I called the warehouse store who put me in contact with Simpson. Very helpful personnel... more

Randy,
Please check model numbers and features carefully when comparison shopping- the warehouse stores often have special models made for them that use different components so they can hit a specific price point.

Poor Customer Service At Simpson
I was thrilled to be able to purchase my own pressure washer after years of renting. After 20 minutes ( I kid you not) of use, the wheel snapped off. Looked to be a bad weld of the wheel bracket onto the frame. I tried to contact Simpson, to no avail, with longer wait times than I could tolerate.
They didn't respond to my email either.

I finally called Costco, whose concierge service assisted me in reaching them. the first customer service rep offered to send a new axle and wheel. When... more

The Good And The Bad
The good: this pressure washer starts easily when cold. It cleans very well with lots of pressure.

The bad: this pressure washer can be hard to start when hot. Oh- and it runs hot. The plastic wand holder is very cheap and broke off the very first day of use.
Brian, the Pressure Washer Expert

Bryan,
Please give the folks at Simpson a call, toll free, at (847) 348-1508 for a replacement wand holder.

Don't Buy This Powerwasher
The pump is junk.

I bought the Simpson 3000psi/gas/2.4GPM from Menards. The unit had to have a new pump before I was done with the first use. It was covered by warranty but we had to take it to the shop & wait to use it.

On the 1st use, weeks later, it leaked water out the bottom everywhere! I took to a Simpson service center and they can't get anybody from Simpson to call them back. After 3 weeks it sits in the shop. I called the Simpson consumer line and they would not work with me.... more

3000psi Much Higher Than 2400psi
The frame was damaged in shipping and the air filter came loaded with oil. In spite of this the performance of this pump was very good.

I used this pressure washer many hours over a two day period with no problems. The pressure of this unit is much higher than my old 2400psi unit.

You must be careful when moving this unit because the pump clearance is only about an inch or two above ground.

Fred,
Please be sure to note any shipping damage on the delivery form; it will make filing a damage claim much easier.

Great Machine
Opened the unit, the directions were pretty self explanatory. Put oil and gas in it hooked up the water and the Honda engine started on the first pull. Impressive.

Be careful of your hose, it will curl up on you and try to lay on the exhaust........

Great machine, would recommend to anyone.

Leaks Gas!!!!!! Wheel Wobbles
I received my new pressure washer from Pressure Washer Direct on 061312. I did check the box and the pressure washer carefully when it was delivered and everything was there that was supposed to be delivered with it.

However, on the same day, I filled it with fuel and when I attempted to start it up became aware of gasoline running out from the carbuerator onto the driveway. I checked the hose, and it wasnt that or any other simple fix, so I contacted Pressure Washers Direct and was... more

Oliver,
It is Federal Law that won't let an engine that has had gas in it be shipped- it's an explosion & fire hazard.

That's why everything we sell has a Factory Warranty. As we advised you over the phone, giving the folks at Simpson a call, toll free, at (847) 348-1508 will let them arrange for the repair of your unit under their warranty.
