SOURCE: karcher k3.98 pressure washer not holding good presure

Dear svoegele2,
Your machine is still good. You have to remove the 4 screws that are holding the head unit. The head unit consists of 2 parts. The outer part has Intake of water and delivery of water under pressure. It has an injector. It also has the chemical inlet attachment. This Detergent inlet valve can be replaced by a new one. (The bottom part of the head has the suction and delivery valves.)
Now this unit of 2 heads is held down with a steel cover. First release the holding down bolts( they could be allen screws or Torx Screws). If the inlet valve for the chemical is still good and t is turned 90 dgrees, twist it slowly to be alligned with the slot in the metal cover. But if this is broken, just remove the metal head and then remove by twisting,..the detergent inlet..(which is also a non return valve).
Carfull if you seperate the top half of the head from the bottom head...because underneath there is a smal spring and a small valve. Do not lose these.
Now if the machine has no pressure..change the bottom half of the head. If the machine is switching on and off...change the upper half f the head. Do not forget that small spring between the 2 heads If where the inlet for detergent in the head is cracked..this top head must be renewed for this reason also.
If all is OK...but only the inlet..where the detergent is broken....remove slowly the detergent inlet, by twisting a little,....and replace by a new one. First see that you have the NEW inlet of detergent before doing anything . Because if you do not find to buy a new on....and there is no damage to the upper head...you can continue using the machine,...but with out having detergent. It is better using it without detergent than throwing the machine away. One final hint. Try the machine with the plastic cover removed,..so to see if there are any leaks or cracks in the head unit.(wear safety gogles). If only the inlet for detergent is broken and no water is escaping from it or the head,...buy a new inlet detergent valve. If you do without detergent and you cannot find to buy a detergent inlet valve,...just close the machine and use it without detergent. When myself I service such machines...I change the whole head unit and detergent valve. Then the machine will be as good as new. And the spares are not that expensive. Better than buying another machine.
Regards,
Fulltech.

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 have a Karcher K3.540 pressure washer. Won't take up detergent and motor pulses ever second if vari-lance increased towards maximim. Motor runs ok at lower pressure but can take 1min to start wh


This fault is within the control head, under the detergent valve is a small spring loaded valve that acts to induce the detergent, this will have failed, the shaft of the component breaks off the disk base leaving a small hole in the centre of the disk. This is enough to allow pressure past the component. The machine will pulse when operated and will not induce the detergent. I've looked everywhere to find this part as I have a karcher with the same fault.

KARCHER K210


If your discussing the crankcase, you can use regular non detergent SAE 30 wt. Do not use the new types of oil as they have additives that may cause harm to the engine.

B302 - unable to start detergent flowing - How should it work?


It will only pick up detergent if you use a low pressure detergent nozzle - or no nozzle at all. It also takes a while for the detergent to get to the nozzle.
