Issue with the Parts Washer

Tried to use the parts washer today and it was very low on pressure, not sure how to troubleshoot and maintain this machine so I figured I’d post about it.

I was also low last friday night when i used it for a hot second, but it was almost 3am at that point and i might have forgotten to post about it on here.

Thanks Jonah, Welcome to the Makerspace!

The water level is most likely low.

Found the same thing Sunday, just to confirm.
@TLAR, is adding water an easy maintenance thing? Say, if I’m swinging by tonight, can I just Google an owner’s manual or find a Youtuber to point to the fill location and level etc etc (or even better, is it painfully obvious even without that)? Or better to wait on it?

If you add a 5 gallon bucket of water this should get you going again. I meant to do this last night but forgot.

Someone put some water in it yesterday afternoon. Not sure if it still needs more.

I’ll check it friday evening. There is a “dipstick” for it as well.
The next chair of automotive is welcome to adopt the task of cleaning it out properly.
