    I have emailed and waited on the phone for 10 minutes. mine started leaking oil on third use. I’m not sure what to do. tried contacting a manager in the company from a previous post but no reply. stick with a local store that you could return to. Waiting to see if “Zac” will put his “canned” response after my review like he did after every other 1 star review. Ha what a joke. He hasn’t responded in over 3 months after I tried to contact him.So now I just got it back after taking it to an “authorized” service center 1.5 hrs away and after a new pump the same oil is leaking everywhere. I am not sure what amazon can do for me but look elsewhere.

    I read the other reviews and was a bit worried about whether this would work for me. It has been a challenge getting this running and leak free, but has been worth it. Would have given it a 5 rating if the following didn’t happen:a) Pump oil was low – had to add oil to the middle of the bubble in the pump window. Oil is definitely necessary to keep the pump workingb) Engine would not start because the air filter was so soaked in oil, it choked out the engine — I washed the paper filter and foam filter cover with Purple Power (bought on Amazon), let it dry and now the engine runs fine with the filters in place.c) The two pressure relief brass fittings on the pump were leaking. I just tightened them a bit (be careful as you can crack the aluminum pump body if you over tighten)Read the directions carefully before using the pressure washer:a) I prime the pump before using — I let the water run until all the air is out of the hose. If you don’t you will burn out the pump. The AAA pump instructions suggests a 30 second prime… but my longer hoses take… well, longer.b) When done, I take the pump hose off and inject “pump saver” after I’m done to protect the inside of the pump. You screw it on the inlet hose side, spray until it comes out the hi pressure hose side. I bought the pump saver at a big box hardware store, but you can order on Amazon if you want. My last pump rusted shut and I don’t want that to happen again.c) I changed the engine and pump oil after 10 hours — I’m careful about breaking in my equipment right. There was a lot of ‘break in’ metal in both oils.Be careful — I use 15w-50 in the pump which I use in my tractor and zero turn mower transmissions. I get the oil at a big box autoparts store and have to ask at the desk because they stock it in back. I DO NOT use the normal 30 weight “pump oil” sold at big box hardware stores because the AAA pump on this unit will burn out.I used Briggs and Stratton 30w small, air cooled engine oil. Again, I don’t use normal 30w automobile engine oil as it doesn’t have the right additives for an air cooled engine.Hope this all helps.

    Had to take it for repair twice after using it less than a handful of times (about 7) around the house. The second time it was a bad pump. Hose also split but not covered after 3 months. A customer service rep said he will send a replacement but never did. When I called to check there was no record of it. They don’t have enough service locations. I live in a count with over 2 million.
