The first thing to do is check the nozzle setting on your spray lance. The nozzle setting is adjustable (by twisting it) and, if it's set to high pressure, cleaning fluid will not be drawn up from the reservoir. Cleaning fluid will only be drawn from the reservoir when the nozzle is set at low pressure. (Even at the low pressure setting, this problem can occur if you use an extension high-pressure hose.)
You say the machine has never been used, so the nozzle setting is the most likely cause of your problem.  Other possible causes are highly unlikely to occur in a new machine.  If adjusting the nozzle doesn't help, I suggest you contact the dealer from whom you bought the machine.
I hope this helps.  Your feedback is valuable to me so please remember to rate this response.

On my Karcher 2600, I filled the detergent tank but as I was washing the bus none of it was coming out, it was still full when I finished, any suggestions Ted?


I see this lots of times , the detergent tank will only mt in the low pressure mode of nozzle , this is the only way a siphion will develop inside the soap tank and then high pressure can be used later to wrinse the item off well using just water

This seems strange, as it is under warranty you can take it back or contact them about the situation. It depends were you purchased the machine but if it is a manufacturers fault they will fix/replace it.

Cant get my soap dispenser hose working on my karcher winner 10, any suggestion?, lost my instructions manual so dont know weather i need to be doing anything for it!


If you have not yet found a solution, then here are some steps to take.
1. The soap dispenser only works on low pressure!!!!!!! So you have to REMOVE the high pressure Sprayer so that all you use is the Trigger Gun without the Extender.
2. Pull out the thin Plastic Hose with the filter attached in the end, and insert into your container of detergent.
It will only splatter the detergent over the area you want to clean, so you will then need to REATTACH the SPRAYER into the hand gun to work with the soap to lather, clean and spray of till clean.
This seems to be the way the system works on this model......also known as K2.36M (AU) in Australia or (EU) in Europe on the Karcher.com.au site then Service then Manuals. or on the link below.
Hope this helps any of you who has misplaced their Owners Manual just like I did and had a great problem trying to find a link as Karcher doesn't recognize the Model No: as Winner 10 or 11.

Cheers, Luke

Hello Sue, you don't say where in the world you live, but if you are attempting to clean dirt and algae off pavers, you need to add a solution to the water jet via the inbuilt attachment. Mix a fairly mild solution of bleach and detergent, pus a dash or deodoriser to the cantainer. Put your karcher on low pressure and give all the blocks a good wetting. Do this in the morning so the solution doesn't dry. After 20 ~30 mins, Claen off with the Karcher on normal high pressure (not the tubo lance). HINT: Leave the trigger on all the time and don't stop and start using it. This will prevent hayraulic hammer which can split the pump head.

I have tried to use my Karcher washer model 411A using the suction tube which is immersed into Patio cleaner bottle but it does not work what am I doing wrong


you have to lower the pressure at the lance for the detergent to be drawn into the hose. It works on a venturi principle.
on the lance you will have to twist or pull back the end for it to go into low pressure mode.

the easiest way to check it is working is to take out the lance extension , the bit that fits into the trigger on a bayonet fitting. run the machine and see if it then draws in detergent.

If it doesnt draw detergent then look to see if there is a detergent valve fitted to the filter that goes into the bottle and check that it is fully open. sometimes ther is a non return valve fitted into the filter too.
it could be that this non return valve has stuck. A poke with a bit of stiff wire should free it off its seat if it is that problem.

hope this helps a little

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.
