Gerni Simplicity 109


I bought this machine from an old fella at a yard sale. It's quiet, compact, powerfull and the old guy kept it in mint condition. I love it but I think it's older than the bloke I bought it from and no one has heard of it, or a parts list for it. The model name in the title was given to me by the repair company, which they read off the side. I'm not sure if its absolutely accurate.

There's a grip handle half way down the gun like you get with angle grinders except you can turn it like a motorbike accelerator. As you wind it on you get more pressure and as you wind it down, unpressurised water starts to come out just next to the pressure head at the end of the gun.

The problem is that if you wind it all the way, the motor starts to cut in and out. The repairers tell me that it's the pressure release valve, whatever and wherever that is. If anyone knows where I might be able to find this part, or if it can be repaired, it would be greatly appreciated.

They also reckon I need a new pressure guage.

I have tried gerni and they have no idea. They put me on to someone who may have had parts but no joy there either.

Re: Gerni Simplicity 109


No but I will tomorrow. I am not optomistic. Thanks for your help.

I guess I was hoping someone would come on and say "oh, the pressure release valve? Just take off the wajemecallit and clean out the dubywhacker and she's good to go." No such luck. Worth a crack though.

Actually it may be the "whoseywhatsit" to get to the "thigamajig" and you'd have to use a metric crescent wrench to do so.

Hi there Hoffman...

Saw you post today while attempting to get my old Gerni Simplicity 109 working better. Have you sorted yours yet ?
Spent some time today pulling the unit apart.
The valve is just beside the pressure gauge
Dismantled the valve, cleaned corrosion and gunk and polished all surfaces. Valve moves freely now. Putting back together tomorrow hopefully it will run as it should once again.
Have some photos I can post or send you if you are still after some help.

Cheers
