HI I would think that your pressure switch has stuck.
You will need to remove the covers etc and check the internal pressure switch that will be situated on the outlet of the pump. It maybe stuck and just want greasing etc or may need replaceing.

Check the screen at the inlet, where the water hose hooks up. These get clogged often because bugs like to crawl up inside hoses and build nests. If it is not that, then you either have a problem with the valves (popet) or the unloader part of the pump. You will need to look at a parts break-down and access these for disassymbly to determine if they are damaged. Find replacement parts either in your owner's manual or Karcher web site or pressure washer dealer in the yellow pages. Good luck.

My Karcher K9.8 electric pressure washer started


Not Simple.
I have the same Problem, the leak is from the seam of the Manifold or on the pressure side of the Pump and the hose housing. In my case there is a small crack in the seam of the Manifold Housing. A manufacturing defect.. A New Manifold Complete Replacement about the half the price what I paid for this pressure washer at Walmart... :( If under 1 year old, and you can find a receipt,Karcher will replace the whole Pressure washer under warranty.

New Troy-Bilt 3000 psi - Very Hard to Hot Start


When you run the unit and shut if off, release the pressure from the spray wand before trying to restart the engine. This built up pressure will cause it to be very hard to start as you have found out. If it does not start on the second pull release the pressure again. Another option is do do what I did on mine. I simply put a pull tie on the handle so I can pull the trigger back and use the pull tie to hold the trigger open. Make sure if you do this, that you remove the high pressure orifice from the end of the wand before attempting to start the engine. Otherwise the pressure will come on abruptly and could injure you or do property damage.

Karcher K3.92 M 1750 PSI poweer Washer motor won't start. Followed Reset/Test/Reset sequence with cord plugged directly into outlet. Light on cord near Reset comes on when Reset pressed down but goes off...


They are sensitive to large extention cords. My father in laws pops reset when a small cord is used. If internally shorted- motor will continually pop the reset even plugged direct to outlet. Check voltage at outlet.

Electric Pressure Washer


try running the machine without the hose attached if the machine runs ok then it is probable the there is a blockage in the nozzle if the the machine still cuts out then the pressure switch will probably be stuck or faulty this switch will be inline with the on/off switch and the motor it can be checked using a multi meter after dissconecting the power.
