OPERATION

  • WARNING! Ensure you read, understand and apply Section 1 safety instructions.
  • WARNING! Dry running can seriously damage the unit.
  • WARNING! Use the washer on a flat, leveled surface, in an upright position. Failure to do so will invalidate your warranty. Never lay the washer down during use.
  • WARNING! DO NOT leave the washer switched on for more than 15 minutes without operating the trigger.
  • IMPORTANT! The washer motor will stop as soon as the gun trigger is released and will restart when the trigger is squeezed. Always allow at least 5 seconds between releasing the trigger and restarting.

6.1. PRIMARY CHECKS
6.1.1. Check that the inlet filter is clean; pump delivery and pressure will be reduced if blocked. Never use the machine without a filter (which is fitted inside the inlet connector fig.1.9). Ensure that the water supply, high-pressure hose, and gun are correctly connected, and that air can circulate around the washer freely.
6.2. SAFETY CATCH OPERATION
6.2.1. To prevent inadvertent operation of the unit, the safety catch in the base of the trigger should always be engaged when the gun is not in use (fig.5).
6.3. BLEEDING THE GUN
6.3.1. It is very important to bleed the gun before using the pressure washer. Squeeze the trigger BEFORE turning the electrical supply on.
This allows any air trapped inside the pressure washer and gun to be removed before using the unit. Continue holding the trigger for approximately one minute to allow any excess air out of the unit. Water will flow through the gun at low pressure during this procedure.
6.4. PRESSURE SETTING
6.4.1. There are three levels of pressure settings (fig.4). Level 1 is the setting suitable for cleaning fences, cement terraces, etc. Level 2 setting is suitable for cleaning vehicles,  boats, motorcycles, etc. Level 3 setting is suitable for cleaning barbeque grills, garden tools, etc.
NOTE: The default level at start-up is Level 2.
6.5. OPERATING THE MACHINE
6.5.1. Hold the spray gun firmly to counteract the recoil caused by the high pressure of the water. Before switching on, ensure that the lance is not directed at people, objects or animals prior to being directed at the object to be cleaned.
6.5.2. It is recommended that the trigger is depressed before switching on the unit before every use. This reduces the back pressure and amperage draw which prevents fuses blowing.SEALEY PW2400 170 BAR PRESSURE WASHER - fig 5

6.6. ADJUSTING THE SPRAY PATTERN
6.6.1. The fan nozzle can be adjusted from pencil point to fan jet by rotating the body of the nozzle (fig.3)
WARNING! The pencil point setting is very aggressive. It is recommended that for most cleaning applications, a 20° spray angle is used to avoid damage to the surface being sprayed.
6.7. USING DETERGENT
6.7.1. The detergent container is located at the rear of the unit. Add detergent (maximum volume 1 liter).
6.7.2. Rotate the nozzle to the Low-Pressure setting as indicated on the nozzle body (fig.3).
6.7.3. When the unit is operated, the detergent will be drawn into the water flow.
6.7.4. To prevent detergent inclusion, reset the nozzle to the High-Pressure setting as indicated on the nozzle body (fig.3).
6.8. TELESCOPIC HANDLE
6.8.1. To adjust the handle depress the button on the side of the unit (fig.6) and move the handle either up or down. When it is in the correct position, a click will be heard and the handle will be held in place.
6.9. WHEN WASHING IS COMPLETED
6.9.1. Switch the power supply off by turning a switch to the ‘Off’ position (fig.1).
6.9.2. Turn off the water supply tap.
6.9.3. Discharge residual pressure by pressing the trigger until no more water comes out of the nozzle.
WARNING! Failure to discharge pressure could result in personal injury.
6.9.4. Disconnect the inlet and high-pressure outlet hoses.
6.9.5. Wipe the machine clean and dry and store in a clean, safe, dry, childproof location.
NOTE: a) DO NOT leave the motor switched on for more than 15 minutes without operating the trigger.
b) If the water pressure drops (e.g. someone else using the same water supply), the washer will not operate correctly.
Immediately switch the motor off and wait until the pressure is restored.

MAINTENANCE

WARNING! Ensure the pressure washer is switched off and unplugged from the mains electrical power supply and turned off at the mains water tap before performing any maintenance tasks.
