You should get the new connectors at any gardening/agri store.

If not, amazon to the rescue :

Default Re: Buying & Using a Pressure Washer

So my black & Decker died on me in middle of washing my car.
Yeah just died. Gave some weird smell and was making some funny sounds and then went quiet.

i tried in vain to get it started didn't help.
Now have to take it to service centre and get it checked.When i bought this i didn't know that it didn't have a the foam attachment,In-case if the repair cost is high i would like to buy a new one of any brand but with a foam lance. Which one would you guys recommend.

Ok I think I figured out the issue here. I have been connecting one end of the pipe into the pressure washer and other end into the tap directly. However, the other end actually needs to be put in a bucket of water from what I read online.

Is this how you guys have been used your pressure washers using a pipe in bucket instead of connecting it to a tap??

Nope, that is not mandatory. Infact that will work only if the pressure washer is self priming and the entire length from the washer inlet to the bucket is completely air tight.

The hose adapter is faulty. Based on whether you are using a 1/2 inch or a 3/4 inch garden hose get the appropriate sized hose adapter.

You can hook it up to a tap as well, Sahil. I had a similar issue as the hose I was using was too stiff. The moment i replaced it with a supple hose, it started sealing well.
