    Had my first Problem with the washer today.
    I could hear the pressure on the machine going up and down with out me doing a thing to it.

    I then checked the water in the buffa and was nearly full, so next checked the fuel and no problems there.

    Recently purchased a turbo nozzle and new lance and thought it may be that, so changed lance but the problem continued.
    So after 20 mins of messing about, I found a leak in the pressure hose coupling connecting to the Lance.
    There is a small rubber O ring inside these couplings and mien had split causing the washer to behave erratically.

    So hears a quick fix if your miles away from a supplier.
    You can take the O ring from one of these hose lock connectors as a temporary fix.

    Saved me time and money today
