pressure may develop. A partially clogged nozzle can
cause a pulsing condition during use. This generally is
not a pump related problem, but rather a clogged or
partially restricted _nozzle.

immediately clean the nozzle with the kit included with
your cleaning system by following these instructions:
,Shut off the engine and turn off the water supply.
Separate the wand from the gun.
Rotate to stream setting.
Remove nozzle from the end of the wand using a
2mm or 5/64 allen wrench.
Use the wire included in the kit or a small paper
clip to free the foreign materials clogging or
restricting the nozzle.
