SOURCE: C/H 1750 Washer will not start with water connected.

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.

The water is pulsing out rather than a steady stream

it sounds like you have a air leak make sure all your fitting are tight if you have a filter make sure the filter isnt clogged if that doesnt fix it it sounds like your pumps ceramics might have been damaged in the pump its self

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.

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.
