Default Advice to people about to buy a Stihl pressure washer


This one is three years old. It failed within a few weeks of purchase
the shop said 'pressure switch' and fixed it under warranty - or did they?

Last week it started getting 'lazy' with restarting after having
switched itself off.

So stripped it to get the pressure switch off. It's a simple enough
assembly - mainly plastic - screws into mazak housing. O-rings seal it.

No way would it unscrew. Whether it had been deliberately glued in place
by the ******* who replaced it under warranty, or what I do not know.

I managed to get *most* of it out but damaged the housing in the process.

So that's a new housing was well. Half the cost of a new washer.
