Question about Karcher 2500 PSI Pressure Washer

1 Answer

No pressure in the pressure washer

Hello,
I'm having trouble with my Honda Pressure washer. I connected up the hose, trigger and water hose. Turned on the pressure washer, then pulled the trigger and started it up. Within a few seconds, I had good pressure and used on the roof for about 1 1/2 hours. Then I got off the roof and shut down the motor, and did something (forgetting to shut off the water hose). This was for about 15 minutes. When I started it back up, I do not have any pressure in the pressure washer. It is just spraying very lightly. What have I done? Is it an easy fix?

    I have an excell 2500, 6.5hp pressure washer. It spray correctly for about 2 or 3 seconds then the water just trickles out. I've replaced the wand with a new one and it didn't fix the problem. Any suggestions?

Leaving the hose on shouldn't cause a problem so don't panic. It sounds like you could just have a dirty nozzle. Try sticking a pin or something in the end of the nozzle (machine not running) and giving it a clear out. also if it is a two peice gun, split it and tap the squirting part on something clean like a workbench to clear any debris that might have got in there.

I have a Yellow Stone APW-150a pressure washer bought in 2005. The hose is cracked at the fitting that attaches to the washer. Can it be replaced or repaired?


Though I have never heard of Yellowstone appliances, I am pretty sure there is a way to get replacement parts from the company spare parts department or from other sources who sell these pressure washers. If not, try the Internet, or try the Speed shops where they sell these to people who pressure wash their cars/trucks. I am also sure there are other hoses not necessarily for the Yellowstone brand but fit perfectly well on them. Find out where they sell other brands and take your washer to them, ask them if they can sell you a hose with the right connectors to fit your washer. No salesperson can refuse to sell you a good bargain.

My s579 bobcat skid steer loader is showing the code M0414(engine oil pressure extremely low) but I checked the oil level and its ok.any idea what could be happening


Connect mechanical oil pressure gauge to check real oil pressure. If OK, replace old pressure sender unit. If actually low, are there leaks? Engine may need bearings replaced, or could be incorrect oil or oil diluted by excessive fuel/leaky injectors.

I have a newholland tm 130 that loses power and I think it is fuel related I have checked the electronic pump and that seems to have a good output any ideas


If you have good fuel pressure, Next I would remove an O2 sensor between the engine and catalytic converter. Take it for a drive. If you don't loose power, replace the catalytic converter/s. After that have a diagnoses done on the engine and transmission.

I have a cat 416b and the front bucket won't curl or raise when something is in it I checked the resolvers behind the wheel on the frame and the seals are busted but a little ball fell out of one of them...


Sounds like that little ball that fell out is a pressure check-ball. Without the ball in place and the seals repaired the hydraulic pressure will just bleed by and not lift when weight is added. You may want to get a qualified mechanic to check it for you. Sometimes that's the most economical thing to do. Watch what they do and you will know how to repair it yourself the next time.

My weed eater will not run with the choke setting wide open.


You may have a pinhole or crack in the small hose that runs from the fuel tank to the carburetor. If equipped with a primer it may also have a small crack or pinhole. Either case may cause the carb to suck air instead of gasoline. Other possible reasons are a plugged muffler causing too much back pressure or a partially clogged fuel filter. (The fuel filter on many weed whackers are located inside the fuel tank at the end of the fuel line.)

Pentair whisperflo 3/4 hp left running over an hour with no water


Sorry to have to tell you but you are going to have to either have your pump rebuilt or replaced. Sounds like you baked the plastic impeller and maybe did even more damage. These pumps require water in order to keep cool.
