Q: Mike: I'm interested in purchasing the Simpson PS4240S. I will however be moving to Australia in 6 months time and I was wondering how to handle any warranty / service issues that might arise. Thanks in advance. Andrew
by Andrew from California on January 23, 2016

A: Thanks for your inquiry. Unfortunately, the Warranty is handled directly through Simpson and is only honored inside the U.S. IO would recommend reaching out to the folks at Simpson to see if there are any options. They can be reached at 800-710-7499. Thanks

Wow No Quality Control Or Testing
This brand new pressure washer ran for Five Minutes ! Was doing a great job cleaning a customer's driveway with a surface cleaner, look back at the unit to see the pump oil level sight glass pop out blowing all the oil all over the customer's sidewalk. Spent the next several hours cleaning up with an older unit I've been using for years!

This is the bad part was told its not warranty!! I over heated the pump- well yes,no oil will do that; this is a product issue not the operator ! I only use... more

Bobby,
I sent your review to the folks at Simpson so they could help you, and stayed in touch with them throughout the day. I'm glad the Warranty Service location they sent you to determined it was a Warranty issue and will be replacing your pump at no charge to you.

We appreciate your business, and apologize for any inconvenience.

Great Product
The pressure is awesome. It is very user friendly, nozzles are within hand's reach when using, which makes it very easy to change the nozzles while washing.

The pressure makes it so much faster to clean livestock trailers. Use it to clean equipment and vehicles. Definitely need to use the appropriate nozzle for the job. If afraid of to much pressure can idle the engine down or move away from whatever you are washing a little bit. It is awesome!!

It is a little hard to pull the... more

Theresa,
The siphon system to suck detergent will only work with the low pressure, black nozzle- that's the way it's designed. If you need to apply soap at higher pressure you can add a Foamer or a set of 2nd Story Nozzles- just make sure you base your selection on your machine's GPM and PSI.

You will find it easier to pull the rope if, before you try to start the engine, you squeeze the trigger gun and let water run through your wand for a minute or two. This drives out all the air from your pump & prevents vapor lock. (Page 6 in the Owner's Manual.) Since the pump and engine are connected directly, air in the pump can make the engine very hard to pull-start.

Not As Good As They Used To Be...
I bought two of these pressure washers. Both worked great for the first two months. Both lost high pressure around the same time and it seems the pressure release valve both broke or the pumps went out already. Also both hoses have burst and gun started leaking.

I have asked for help PED but all they say is call this 1800 number for help and they will find a service center for you. They offered no solutions for help. I don't have time to drop off and leave pressure washers for days or... more

Chris,
This unit comes with a 1 year, consumer-use Factory Warranty from Simpson that covers defects in materials and/or workmanship, but there are longer warranties on the engine (3 years warranted by Honda) and the pump (2 years warranted by AAA- also made by Simpson).

We don't handle parts or service, which is why we referred you to Simpson at 877-362-4271. If you have an engine problem you can find Honda small engine service in your area with Honda's Service Locator. A call to Simpson will be the fastest way to figure out if the unit needs to be taken for service.

I understand your time constraints. If there are multiple repair locations in your area, calling around to see who can get your repair in and out in the shortest time would be a good plan.

Hoses are considered wear & tear items, and are only covered for 30 days for problems in materials & workmanship. Pulling the hose across rough surfaces or for long distances can cause premature failure, as can allowing the hose to kink under pressure or come in contact with the hot engine muffler- those situations would not be covered by a Factory Warranty.

What A Work Horse
Saved up for 3 years to buy a power washer like this and it was worth every penny. Cleans my pool deck in about 1/5th the time I did with my old pressure washer.

Great quality.

This Things A Beast!!
Absolutely love my new Simpson pressure washer. The 4200 PSI have cut down my cleaning times considerably. The longer wand keeps you from having to stoop over while washing. The 4 gpm flow allows you to easily wash away any dirt or grime you have blasted up. Always starts on the first or second pull. I totally recommend this washer!!!
Pros: High Quality, I'd Buy It Again, Exceeded Expectations, Price

Totally impressed with my new Simpson PowerShot. Started first pull. Startled by the "kick" of the wand. Like a small shotgun. Cleaned my dirty patio in no time. This is a pressure washer.

Lots Of Power!
This pressure washer had more power than I thought it would! It ran my 24 inch surface cleaner great !

I've only used it a few times so far but I like that I can adjust the pressure depending on what I'm doing. Be prepared to buy a better gun if you are going to use it every day. The one that it comes with is junk. Luckily they aren't too high priced though.

Overall this is a great pressure washer and I'm happy with it.
Pros: I'd Buy It Again, Easy To Use, Exceeded Expectations, Reliable
Cons: Cheap gun

Unit Doa, Simpson No Help!
Picked up from dock. Unit would not start. Called Simpson. Simpson said called Honda it is their problem. "What ever you do, do not try to fix it yourself" they said.

Honda wanted $61.00 to tell me it was Simpson's fault and they would not warranty any work on it They did get it running for me but it cost me time, trouble and money to take it to that dealer. I am not happy. Honda said I would never have gotten it started with new fuel as the directions said.
Pros: Durable, Easy To Use
Cons: Expensive, Bad Instructions, Packaging

Brian, the Pressure Washer Expert
Product Expert
Ritch,
We appreciate your business, and apologize for any inconvenience. There are a couple issues here that maybe some explanation will help.

On most professional-grade units the individual components are covered by that component's Factory Warranty. In this case, Simpson makes the AAA pump, so they would handle pump warranty issues; and Honda makes the engine, so Honda Small Engine handles engine warranty claims.

If a repair shop is licensed for Honda small engine warranty work, it is their call whether the issue is related to a defect in materials or workmanship- covered by the Factory Warranty; or not.

Factory Warranties are void if you try to work on the item yourself, so the folks at Simpson were trying to help you protect your Honda warranty coverage.

The engine & pump are directly connected, so one will influence the other. If you let water run through the spray gun for a minute or two before starting the engine it drives air out of the pump, allowing the engine to turn over. (Page 6 in your Owner's Manual). It's always a good idea to use fresh gas in your pressure washer- old gas doesn't burn as well.

You didn't give us any details about how the repair shop determined your issue was "Simpson's fault". Simpson tests each machine before it leaves the dock, and any shipping damage is a separate issue. However, if you can give us some documentation that shows what the problem was (send it to us at 'service@pressurewashersdirect.com') we'll be happy to bring it to Simpson and see if they will reimburse you.
