SOURCE: karcher HDS 750 HOT HIGH PRESSURE WASHER

G-day Mate.

Did you check if the igniters? they may be cloged up with ****. Unscrew the Sight glass on top of the boiler and run the machine (in cold or hot mode, doesn't matter, as the igniters are running all the time) and see if there are working, you should take them out anyway and give them a wipe with a rag as general maintenance item, and when you put them back in there should be about 5mm gap between them.


Less common reasons for the boiler to not work
- Faulty fuel solenoid valve, (You should hear a click sound about 5 - 10 seconds after you pull the trigger)
- Dirty fuel filter,


Take a look at those simple things and let me know if its any of these.

I have a Karcher HDS 750 1989 Year model

This machine just keeps going, it's had a fairly tough life but it has stood up to it all,

i hadent spent anything on it until about 6 months ago when i purchased a new fuel pump for it as the old was wasn't pushing 170PSI to the Disiel injector it had slowly droped 70psi, and it doesn't create a hotter burn in the boiler, but still very good for a 19yr old pump,

other than that thats all it's needed, it's still going strong to date
Very robust machine.

my e-mail is cgodfx@internode.on.net

Cheers Matt.

SOURCE: just bought a used karcher hds 500ci every now & again

you burner assy needs to be cleaned , spark electrodes properly gapped and the fuel pump pressure set , the chemical pick up often gets clogged , and the chemical valve ( pump side becomes jammed ( a small ball bearing jams in the seat )
also clean out the diesel tank and clean or replace the fuel filter , if the smokes is white thats caused by water in the fuel , black smoke is too much fuel going to the burner assy or your ignition electrodes not igniting it

My karcher isn't giving me hot water why? It's a hds 601c


Morning Chris Taylor,

You have an igniter/burner coil inside your system that has to be
functioning properly to have good combustion going inside the coils of your heater unit (very bottom).

I tried to pull the documents to see if yours was kerosene powered (like mine: not a Karcher)... but could NOT pull your HDS 601C up on the company site (Karcher.com, sorry... It's me & my new PC).

Poor water = de-lime water coil procedure

Cool water = No combustion, check kerosene, oil (burner fuel)... filter... (etc.) and check your spark!

If your air supply is insufficient to support great combustion your ignitor & fuel nozzles can get heavily built up in soot. My manual says to clean it with detergent & water... I have only ever used Berryman choke & throttle body cleaner.

All the precautions... don't hurt yourself!!

Hope this helps...

I would like a karcher instruction manual for a HDS650 pressure washer


I believe the HDS sends spark to the ignitor any time the machine is on ( hot or cold) You should hear the crackle of the ignitor in the burner area. Perhaps the ignitor rods are not properly aligned. Perhaps your ignitor coil is bad. There are several safety switches and the thermostat that would keep the burner from firing if they are bad. There is a pressure switch that turns on and off the motor for hot or cold operation. That is apparently working. I think there is a flow switch that turns off the burner. The thermostat might not be opening and closing contacts and that will keep the burner from working. I believe there is a high temperature safety switch as well.

Extensive smoke


Is this a karcher hds unit?

There is a device by the air intake that looks like a semi-circle. This adjusts the air flow to the burner chamber. You can adjust this according in order to get rid of the smoke but you have to get it right in order not to have to much air in order to blow out the flame.

If this does not work you may have to clean out the fuel injector and housing. Then if it continues you may have to clean the exterior of the coil.

If you are to clean the exterior of the coil make sure you take the cover off from the bottom three bolts (bolt on to base of machine) and not the three bolts at the top of the housing(were fuel injector is). You can use a karcher product called RM 81 which acts as a degreaser and pressure wash the coil( making sure all electrics are covered up).

I have come accross this a few times as the injector sprays diesel on the coil if the air flow is not fixed correctly and then the smoke you are seeing is the machine burning off the diesel that is on the coil.

Where are the Spark Plugs located in a 2004 Lincoln Navigator?


Hello, first how many miles do you have on this Lincoln? On that 4.6 L V8 engine they do have spark plugs but each plug has it's own spark coil located on a long rubber plug. You will see four little coils on each side of the engine. There will wires going in to the individual coils. There will be a bracket the holds the coils in place with a small 9 or 10 mm nut. Remove the nut, and gently pull on eac coil. There Hello, first how many miles do you have on this Lincoln? If you have over 120 thousand miles on this engine then it might need new spark plugs. On that 4.6 L V8 engine they do have spark plugs but each plug has it's own spark plug coil. You will see four little coils on each side of the engine. There will wires going in to the individual coils. There will be a bracket the holds the coils in place with a small 9 or 10 mm nut. Remove the nut, and gently pull on each coil. There a long rubber plug that fit in each spark hole. These rubber plugs are about 4 1/2 to 5 inches long.


Before removing the plug use an air hose with 50 to 60 lbs of pressure to blow each spark plug hole out which might have foreign object in the hole. Why, if you remove the spark plugs, and there is foreign material in that plug hole. Guess what, that stuff will fall into the combustion camber.



Then you will really have some problem. How fix if stuff fall into the combustion camber.

Squirt small amount of oil in the combustion camber, unplug all the coils and clear out there plug hole. Now remove all the spark plugs. Now, you can crank the engine and will the little amount in that cylinder that has the junk in it. The oil will wet the foreign debrie, and blow it out the spark plug hole. Then use a clean rag with with some oil it with a long screw driver to clean that spark plug hole Be careful that don't push the foreign material back into the combustion camber. Do this several time with little amount of oil.



Now, you can install the new spark plugs. On the spark plugs threads use some anti-shiz grease. Why squirt oil into the combustion camber? The oil is used to seal the rings on the piston to increase the cylinder compression. Just a small amount goes a long ways. GB...stewbison

Riding down the road at 30 m.p.h. my 91 y.j. wrangler 4 ltr. just quit. I replaced the coil ,it ran2 blks. and quit again. after replacing 2 coils we broke the little catch on the wire that holds it into...


Pretty likely you can get a connector for the coil from any scrapyard. As you really don't yet know what's wrong with the computer, no idea how you'd deal with it. I'd begin by making sure the grounds are good and just unplugging and plugging back in the harness connectors (often if one's a little corroded. just doing that will clean it up). You can also use tuner and contact cleaner available at radio shack or other electronics place.
While the connectors are removed if you can find a decent wiring diagram you should check continuity from the computer terminals to the coil to make sure a wire isn't partially shorted or broken. If you don't have any understanding of what I just said, please don't rate my answer. No decent shop would diagnose unless they actually did hands on testing. I can't do that either. What i mentioned is what I'd do first.

Accidently put 2 cycle gas into Karcher G2600VH, Drained gas,Took spark plug out and cleaned. It is running fine now is there anything I should do in addition


Placing 2 cycle gas into a 4 cycle engine does not cause problems (but will blow white smoke and, in time, dirty the plug). I would have probably just ran it through.
