Karcher 2.180 motor won't go.

Karcher 2.180 worked fine an hour ago. Connect elsewhere and no go - motor won't run. Pressing the trigger on the lance lets the tap water flow through so hose is not blocked. It is a hot day, but I purged sun heated water out of the hose first. Tap water pressure is rather high where I am too in case its relevant. Took a multimeter to the to contacts inside (with power disconnected of course) - on the input side of the switch there is continuity on each wire from the plug end to the input contacts. On the output side of switch there is no continuity on either contact relative to input contacts no matter which way the switch is turned. Is it possible the pressure part of the switch is not operating (unloader stuck?) or is the electrical contact of the switch stuffed? Is there some easy way I can test for either condition without pulling it further apart? Is there some simple way to unstick the unloader so I can check that first?

It sounds to me like the unloader valve is bypassing internally.

SOURCE: does not give a continous high pressure flow cuts in and out

Hi. Water flow may be restricted to the pressure washer.

Check that all hoses are free of kinks, leaks, or blockage. Make certain all hoses and fittings are connected properly. Make sure to open the faucet/spigot to full force. Set the spray wand to high pressure.

Clear any debris from the nozzle. If the nozzle has even a little bit of dirt in the tip, it may cause enough obstruction for the pressure washer to pulsate. If your pressure washer came with a nozzle cleaner, use it to clean the tip. If not, you can use a pin or paper clip to clear the nozzle tip of debris that may have become lodged in it.

If these have been checked and the washer is still fluctuating from high to low pressure there may be air trapped in the pump. To bleed the pump of any air, turn the machine off and disconnect the high pressure hose and trigger gun from your power washer. With only the garden hose connected to the machine, turn on your water source and allow water to run through the pump of the machine for 20 or 30 seconds. Turn off the water and connect the high pressure hose and trigger gun and try using the machine again.

SOURCE: Have a Karcher kb4040 that continues to run

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.

Motor running, water supply adequate but when


clean whole water supply and outlet from all debris, clean inlet filter as well. connect water and pressurise washer, pull trigger and wait about 3sec for pump to activate, if pump do not activate adn you have pressure from nozzle as it will be from main, this determines pressure sensor (it is extremelly rare for pump itself) is damaged.

check if you have still warranty,this will qualify as warranty repair, if warranty is expired, pressure sensor need to be replaced.

if you find my advice useful, please do not hesitate to leave your remarks and vote for me, thanx!

HI Your machine wil start and stop if you have any external leaks when the machine is running at not pressing the trigger. Please start the machine and not pull the trigger and look form leaks. A common one is around the high pressure hose outlet and also the trigger.

Karcher K2.36 motor cut out and won't restart


Yes, the water should be turned on first but if it only ran for a minute or two it should be OK. Most late model pressure washers have an automatic shutoff when the trigger on the wand is released. Turn on the water and then the machine and then squeeze the trigger on the handle of the wand and the motor should start as soon as the air is cleared from the line by the flowing water (about 10 seconds). If the unit was put away wet last season you may need to clean the nozzle with a piece of wire too.

Karcher K 3.68 M operation


These units have pressure valves that automatically turn off the pump once the pressure is high enough. The pressure switches do fail and sometimes stick and act as you've described.
