Question about Karcher K2.26 Electric Power Washer
Assuming the fuse blew because the motor (or extension lead plug) got wet, I allowed it to dry out for a week, but today I tried to start it up and it blew the fuse straight away. What should I do next?
What you should do next is stop using an extension lead. As you've already discovered, there's a risk of the connection getting wet, which is potentially very dangerous, but this is probably not the main problem. Most extension leads (the normal domestic type) are simply not capable of carrying the current needed to run your pressure washer.
Rather than using an electrical extension, use an extension high-pressure hose and work further away from the machine (which also makes it easier to keep the machine dry).
If this doesn't sort the problem, please post here again and we'll try something else. Good luck!
