Engine runs but only a steam of water comes out of gun with trigger on. washer is stored in a heated garage in winter.

you need to remove and clean the unloader valve. The way this valve works is when you release the trigger the pressure is diverted around the pump through the inlet side so you don't cause damage to the pump. This valve is usually located next to the discharge pipe on the pump where your pressure hose hooks up to. Remove and clean. Be sure to clean port that you remove the valve from also. Use carburetor cleaner. Lubricate the valve with a light coat of lithium grease. This should cure the problem. If not let me know.

Wont reset when button is pressed

motor is hydraulically "locked"...check inside your inlet from the garden hose, most likely it's blocked.

Have a Karcher steamer SC1002. The safety cap will not turn. Did not leave any water in it after I last used it. According to the instructions I needed to contact customer services but they were no help....

Dear friends,
I once solved a problem like this with a simple trick. The problem is that it should be done by a qulified tecnician. I will suggest this trick, but do not take responsability if unqualified persons try to do it. The trick is to fill the steamer again with water from some where else. Most probably the cover of the steamer has to be removed. Thou one can try to fill ot from the outlet. Now when there is water in the steamer, one must put it on, and let the temperature rise. When the temperature is at its normal reading, you just let it cool slowly. (leave as much water inside as possible). As it is cooling, you must try at intervals to unscrew the tap. If it is still very hot this is not possible(safety)....if it is too much cold, also not possible. So find the RIGHT and SAFE temperature. And the tap can be removed.
