My mop has the lights on when turned on and gets hot at the base, but there is no steam coming out?


You pumping it? Is it clogged? You may need to open it up and un-clog it.

My Karcher 2400 Pressure Washer will not syphon cleaning fluid. I have a reconditioned machine and the syphon for cleaning fluid has not worked for a while.Everything looks clean but still does not work'...


The black tip nozzle puts the right amount of pressure on the line to draw up the cleaning solution.

If your power washer is like mine, the cleaning fluid adapter is a 'T shaped' brass valve that fits in-line along the hose line.
There is a brass stem sticking out.
The stem has a tiny ball valve on the end.
A plastic hose fits onto the stem, and the plastic hose goes into bucket of cleaner.
As water travels through power washer hose, it creates suction that draws cleaning solution through the tiny ball valve.

The brass ball valve gets clogged or wears out ... we used to replace the stem every so often.
Sherwin Williams used to carry a replacement stem ... but they may not sell little parts any more.
It's been 14 years since I used the suction device.
I got fed up with the thing not working.

We changed over to a pump-up hand-held sprayer for applying cleaning chemical.
The pump-up puts more chemical on the spots where you need it.
So one guy puts chemical on, and second guy comes behind with power washer ... no more replacement parts, and one tip stays in the gun so we never lose a tip.
A pump-up sprayer is half the cost of replacing the T-shaped valve.
Duh-simple is the business model.

Have filled tank,switched on but cannot get any steam or water


Please try putting the machine on mains water pressure as it might want bleeding as air as got into the system. you will need to attach the water mains pipe directly onto the pump by removing the pipe that gose to the water tank and fitting the water mains pipe.Run the machine on direct water supply for 2 minutes and then return the pipes back to normall.

Oil goes towards the air cleaner in my water pressure. what is wrong?


It is normal for a small amount of oil (usually a smokey vapor) to pass from the crankcase breather into the air filter. However, if your having an excessive amount of oil then the the stem seals on the valves have hardened and it is allowing oil to pass along the valve stem through the valve guide through the breather and into the air filter. The remedy is to replace the stem seals under the valve springs inside the cylinder head.

One other thing that will do it is if someone overfilled the engine crankcase with oil. This will cause massive amounts of oil to be pumped into the air filter.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Low water pressure and no heat


Check heating element to see if its continuous, a ohms meter helps here, if open replace, as for water pressure depending on you faucet pressure, if its not the same thers a blockage...pressure wands are suceptible to as much as a gain o salt, so thouroughly clean with needles, wires or pressure(air) backwards...nozzles and all fitments!

Try looking on the computer board for a battery back up. If it does have one, unplug that and then plug it back in and see if that will reset your control.
