    I note in other replies to this problem you refer to a reset button on the plug but my model doesn't have one on the plug. Can you assist?

Dear jimbocom,
The problem is that the spill valve got stuck. When the machine is working and the gun is closed, a valve( spill valve) moves with the accumilated pressure and switches the machine off. So what happened is that when the spill valve did its job, it found no water...and remained stuck. This leaving the machine in an off position. Service and lubrication to the spill valve must be done or completely replacing with a new spill valve. In my opinion you have no serious damage, but this job must be carried out by an expirienced technician.
Regards,
MG.

It sounds like the fuel bowl is not filling quickly enough. Turn the fuel tap off. Then take the fuel bowl off the carby. You will see a plastic float. Above the float is a needle (small pin like) that should shut the fuel off & let it run also. Turn the fuel back on,the fuel should be running out quickly. Push the float up and the fuel should stop running. If no fuel is coming out then the needle is stuck. Clean with carby cleaner and push up & dowm a few times to ensure it is working OK. You may need to replace needle. Turn fuel off. Put fuel bowl back on and turn fuel tap on. Test.

Normally when you dry run a machine you damage the pump so it would probably need changing. The motor might be Ok but for you to fix it you will need to take it to a Karcher dealer/service center.

From experiance it sometimes can be more cost efficient to purchase a new Karcher machine and get the 12 month warranty than spending money on an older machine.

Karcher K2.36 motor cut out and won't restart


Yes, the water should be turned on first but if it only ran for a minute or two it should be OK. Most late model pressure washers have an automatic shutoff when the trigger on the wand is released. Turn on the water and then the machine and then squeeze the trigger on the handle of the wand and the motor should start as soon as the air is cleared from the line by the flowing water (about 10 seconds). If the unit was put away wet last season you may need to clean the nozzle with a piece of wire too.

No pressure HOSE IS BIG ENOUGH,NO KINKS, FILTER IS CLEAN. TOOK THE PUMP APART AND CHECKED ALL THE CHECKS, THEY WERE ALL OK.WHAT ELSE CAN I LOOK FOR? THE PUMP IS A KARCHER-MODEL G 1800 LB Thanks, Art


Brother Art,

Try this trick; it always works for me. Assemble the garden hose to the washer, install the HP hose, turn on the water. Now, make sure that there is no air trapped in the garden hose. Manipulate so as to direct any air trapped in the line to the washer. Connect the gun and continue to allow water to "free flow" for several minutes. Now, work the trigger, allowing the unit to rise to "house pressure, and then pull the trigger, dropping the pressure suddenly. This displaces any air hidden in the system. Do this several times, and start the washer up. If this doesn't get you up to pressure, repeat the above on an abbreviated scale, and hold the trigger on the gun down while you start the washer. This should do it.

Trigger gun


It sounds like you left out the spring in the hose.
There are about 10 different models of K330 with several types of guns. Go here and search until you find the correct gun so you can see the diagram. I think it will be hard to buy a replacement spring, though.
