I was working at a job. Every time I pulled the trigger my PSI went from 400 to 0. I can clean the carpet without a PSI, but these were thicker and very dirty carpets. I would have liked to have some PSI. Any of you Porty Guys run into this issue? Bad Water Pump? Thanks.

Pristine is right about air in your pump! Your Ninja Warrior comes with a priming hose! Try priming it! Good Luck!!

I had the same unit when I started. It lost prime fairly often. Keep the short hose with you. Fyi, Cobbs sells a motor upgrade for your portable. You'll get about 40% more power. I think it's about 400.00...

I'm hoping I just need to prime the pump. I'll try that when I get home. Thanks for the advice.

Sometimes it takes a while to prime. Turn off the machine and release pressure then turn on machine check pressure. Repeat till pressure is steady.

Check and clean all the filters feeding the pump starting with the one at the bottom of the fresh tank, and open her up to see if there is another in-line water filter located somewhere between the freshy and the pump.

Not familiar with the Warriors, but I know Mytees have a secondary in-line filter with a smaller micron screen than the in-tank one.

Just a comment here.

This thread reminded me of the fact that Portables should not really have these sort of problems, if they are engineered and designed properly. That is the key here because this situation (in the majority of cases) occurs more in generic systems. Not knocking any machine or brand here, however, the Operator deserves better than this.
In regards to pressure (the number stated by manufacturers), maintaining pressures (worn pumps not included here), all depends largely on the horse power; and capacitors; one, or two, or none.

That old over used and sometimes abused saying that "all portables are alike" only puts that above to shame because they are not, period!

Big difference here!

best to all;

You most likely have a leak in the water inlet to the pump, causing it to lose prime and suck air. The usual culprit is the plastic fitting at the pump itself.
