SOURCE: karcher k2400hh pressure washer, water pressure cuts out.

Hello cikanek:

Try this:

From your posting, I assume you have removed the splash cap and the nylon bypass valve cover. Connect the water supply to the pump and connect the high pressure hose and wand to the pump outlet. Wad up a small towel and place it over the bypass valve opening to catch the valve insert when it pops out. With the engine throttle closed, pull the starter cord several times to see it the valve insert will pop out. If it doesn't come out after two or three pulls, set the throttle to low and start the engine. I have performed this procedure a number of times and the valve insert always pops out. There is no real danger of the valve parts getting seriously airborn since the actual pump output volume is very low (2.5 Gal/min).

Good luck,
Ed

I would just purchase a new unloader valve, they usually aren't worth rebuilding. I would like to have a picture of the set up that you have, if you can send me a picture of the unloader region of the pump I can get you are price on a new one. email is justin@wmpcs.com

Water pressure is high and over flow pipe is running


Have you measured the pressure or is it a faulty valve. Are the inlet and outlet valve open. There is a safety valve for thermal relief on top of the tank.

What is a Thermal relief valve?


The thermal relief valve is a valve that opens when the water inside your pump gets too hot. When you are not pulling the trigger on your gun, the water is circulating inside the pump. After a little while the water starts getting hot from the friction of the moving parts. When the water gets too hot, the heat starts to damage the water seals. What a thermal relief valve does is, at about 145 degrees it opens up dumping the water inside the pump on the ground. As the water pours out, new cool water flows in from the garden hose, cooling off the pump. I personally recommend a thermal relief valve to everyone I sell pumps to. Not all pumps come with a thermal relief valve. For the price (between 10 and 15 dollars) they will save you a lot more than they cost.

Where to install thermal relief valve


It should be the last threaded hole right before the water enters the pump itself, on the low pressure ( inlet) side, most pumps have 2 different size holes 90 degrees from each other, commonly 1/4 and 1/8 in.

Pressure releif valve leaking


Hot water pressure relief valves serve two functions. The first is to remove high-pressure water from the hot water tank. The second function is to act as a high temperature valve to remove water that exceeds a predetermined point for the valve. Both of these relief settings are preset at the valve factory. Many pressure relief valves will come with a metal tag that identifies these release points. If you're attempting to remove the hot water heater pressure relief valve, pay careful attention to ensure that you replace with the correct valve.

Your hot water heater has a pressure relief valve safety mechanism. When pressure inside the water tank exceeds certain limitations, the valve opens up to allow the pressure to be released. A faulty pressure relief valve will not release excess pressure, which could cause extensive damage to your home. You should test the hot water heater pressure relief valve once every six months to ensure proper operation. If the pressure relief valve fails the test, replace the valve with a new one immediately

Locate the pressure relief valve on your hot water heater. The pressure relief valve has a lever handle on top with a drain pipe attached to it. The pressure relief valve is most often on the side of the water tank toward the top. Newer models of hot water heaters have the pressure relief valve on top of the water tank.

  • Inspect the area around the pressure relief valve for signs of leaking water. If there is leaking water near the relief valve connection, replace the relief valve. If no leaking is evident, proceed with testing the pressure valve.

    Examine the area below the pressure relief valve drain pipe. Most water heater closets either have a drain in the floor below the pipe or the pipe is inserted into another pipe to direct the water out of the home. If the end of your drain pipe is not in another pipe or there is no drain in the floor, place a bucket under the drain pipe to catch water when you test the pressure relief valve.

  • 4

    Pull the lever handle on the top of the pressure relief valve up with your fingers. A working lever will lift up without difficulty.You should begin to hear water going through the drain pipe. Slowly release the lever to shut off the pressure relief valve. The pressure relief valve is good. If you did not hear water running through the drain pipe, lower the lever on the pressure relief valve and replace the valve. If the lever is difficult to raise, do not force the lever. Replace the pressure relief valve.


  • Now with all that said if you have a closed loop water supply system and you have a pressure vessal/expantion tank it may have gone bad and is making the TP valve leak. you can call your water provider to see if you have closed loop system.

    I have a C2006 Type 4 Porter Cable pancake compressor which will build pressure all the way up to 150psi then cut off as it should but there will be a loud hissing and pressure drop until the cut on...


    first you have a reciprocating pump and the hissing you ear probably comes from the unloading valve on the pressure switch(it will look like a bike tire valve)if there is air coming out the valve when the compressor is off it probably means you have a bad check valve.This valve is use to unload the pressure inside the pump for an easy start .a motor always drive more amps on start up if you cant unload this pressure you will trip the overload(you probably have a reset button on your motor)check the specs on your pressure relief valve ,its a small pump maybe its just adjusted to high.in this case your pressure relief valve will open .If the pressure is fine and there is air coming out the relief valve then you have to replace it!to adjust your pressure turn the screw on your pressure switch clockwise to increase and counterclockwise to decrease .usually you have a 30 psi between cut-in and cut-off called the pressure differential.It can be adjusted on some pressure switch.be sure you put some teflon tape on the treads if you replace something to avoid air leaks.hopes this help!

    I have a small leak and it is dripping on the ground


    You'll obviously have to determine where leak is coming from, then we can decide how to stop it. If it's the pressure relief valve outside, and it's only a small drip, that is normal, but you can try lifting arm on relief valve and cleaning it out a little to see if that helps clean it out. BE CAREFUL when water is hot, that you don't burn yourself, thus better to try it when cooled down. If it's dripping, or running out too much, it may be that water is too hot, or water pressure is too high as well, so check that as well. Usually smart to install a pressure regulator in line from hose to trailer. If your running off on board pump, not very likely that pressure is too high as they are usually set at 40-50 psi, which shouldn't cause that. If water doesn't feel hotter than before, then best to replace pressure relief valve, if that's where dripping (excessive) is coming from.

    Why vent hole has been provided on the venting pipeline of pressure relief valve.


    A vent hole is required on a pressure relief valve to allow excess 'dangerous' fluid or gas to escape as required in a controlled manner normally via another pipe.

    Honda GVC 160 lost pressure - noticed small black valve (back - rear) after pressure builds up , short spray then nothing - hot water comes shooting out the black valve - did something pop off?


    The small black valve is called a thermal relief valve. If it is open you will have no pressure. If the water is getting hot enough to pop that valve, there might be internal problems with the pump.

    Moffat Heavy Duty Washing machine pump leak


    It should have a wax/plastic plug in it. Kind of a pressure relief valve. If it's missing - replace the pump. It cannot be replaced.
