    Can you recheck the model number. The one you provided is not in their database. I would also think an oring is bad, but without seeing a breakdown It would be just a guess. Let me know

SOURCE: pressure washer

Dear Davidpaulson,
There are many reasons why there is no pressure. The simplest one is try a new lance. The lance you say it is not blocked, but it could have a wider hole with wear and tear.
The second most possible reason is, faulty valves. The suction valves are the most that give low pressure when they are faulty. To check the suction valves, put on the machine in the normal way and as it is working, disconnect the water supply. Than check if air or water is blowing out from the inlet. This is not 100% but you can have a picture of the function of the suction valves.
On the other hand if you do this exercise with the outlet, after removing the gun, you can check for the delivery valves. If you feel suction at the outlet, than the delivery valves can be faulty.
If all is correct, than there must be a fault in the swash plate. This could become loose and so the pistons will stop moving. Also another fault could be broken springs.
Also if the machine is leaking, the high pressure and low pressure seals are damaged. This also lowers pressure.
Other faults are related to the famous spill valve. Also faults could be to internal water leakages, due to corrosion in heads. Finaly I like to add that a faulty electric motor, could also not deliver enough rotation and power, and this also reduces pressure. This could be rewinded or changed for a new one.
Regards,
MG.

SOURCE: Karcher pressure washer won't start

Dear ralph_birtwi,
Most pressure washers when their gun is released, the machine stops automaticaly. This is done ny means of a control valve. When the gun is closed...pressure is built and the control valve moves and switches a micro switch off. In your case the micro switch is still closed in off position. Now this happens if a machine is left and stored with pressure in it., This control valve could get jammed and leaving the micro switch in off position. It could also stay in off position by sticking, due to incorrect chemical.
So the control valve or even called spill valve, must be renewed.
Sometimes a little lubrication with the right type of silicon grease will get the control valve working again. This job is sometimes delicate and better done by a qualified technician.
Regards,
fulltech.

SOURCE: BOSCH Washing Machine -Door Seal

1) remove the tension ring under the rim of the seal at the front
2) flip the whole seal into the drum so that you can get at the inside of the seal
3) remove the tension ring hold the seal to the outer tub
4) reverse of the process to put in the new seal

Its as simple as that.

Hi Guys there isnt a problem with your machine you just need to pull the end of the spray lance out -the lumpy bit where the water exits the machine (it kinda clicks out)

No water pressure when wand is squeezed


check the nozzle isnt blocked easiest way to do this is remove pipe from lance handle and see if it fires water at pressure when lance isnt attached if it does fire water at pressure then your spray nozzle is blocked or turned off at the nozzle the nozzle can sometimes spin to far round and close

My karcher k7.85 has lost pressure and the motor runs constantly when switched on ,motor only used to run when trigger pulled in on lance ,there is no leaks. Can any one help please.


Sounds like the pump seals are bad. The manual says to only use these a few minutes at a time, most people try to clean the patio etc with them, run them too long, and burn out the pump seals - don't ask me how I know this.

This is two things. One is the back flow check valve to the soap line is leaking. The other is the pressure switch on the output side of the pump.

PRESSURE WASHER DOESNT HAVE MUCH PRESSURE, MOTOR DOESNT EVEN KICK DOWN LIKE ITS UNDER LOAD


Make sure that the tip of the head is not damaged, or missing anything.
Sometimes, there can be a pressure leak from the tip of the lance, inhibiting the pump from kicking in properly.
Hope that helps.
