SOURCE: karcher pressure washer leaking oil

all 4 stroke engines have oil, and 2 stroke can have a oil mixer reservoir to mix with engine gas or to lube the chains , gears, pumps.
If yours is 4 stroke as likely then the oil may be leaking at the seals to the main. (bad news)
Pressure wash it (lol) and locate the leak,
to speed up the leak you can pump some compressed air into the engine (be creative)

SOURCE: Karcher pressure washer won't start

Dear ralph_birtwi,
Most pressure washers when their gun is released, the machine stops automaticaly. This is done ny means of a control valve. When the gun is closed...pressure is built and the control valve moves and switches a micro switch off. In your case the micro switch is still closed in off position. Now this happens if a machine is left and stored with pressure in it., This control valve could get jammed and leaving the micro switch in off position. It could also stay in off position by sticking, due to incorrect chemical.
So the control valve or even called spill valve, must be renewed.
Sometimes a little lubrication with the right type of silicon grease will get the control valve working again. This job is sometimes delicate and better done by a qualified technician.
Regards,
fulltech.

SOURCE: my karcher pressure washer has lost its water power

I have the same problem. With mine I have to remove the tip that I am using then pull the trigger and then replace the tip and pull and pressure should return. I believe that one of my valves is sticking causing me to reprime the pump frequently. I am trying to clean or replace my valves to fix the problem.

I hope this helps.

SOURCE: Karcher Power Washer that surges up and down with water pressure.

Before you start it up:
1. Disconnect the high pressure hose 2. Connect the water supply and turn on 3. Make sure water is flowing through the pump
Start the motor, run for about 10 seconds and then turn off.
Turn off the water supply, connect the high pressure hose, turn water back on, start the motor and away you go.

SOURCE: karcher 3300 G water leak out rear of unit from white plasticplug

if its just a plug, remove it with an allen key and wrap a couple layers of teflon tape around it. That should stop, or at least slow down any leaks that are coming out of the threads.

My K2.91 pressure washer has an oil leak.Is this repairable.


It is repairable but it may cost you near the same amount of money to repair it compared to buying a new machine. Also with a new machine you then will have a 12 month warranty which is better to have as you may fix your machine and then something else may go wrong.
The problem sounds like the seals in the pump need changing so if you ask your local karcher dealer/service center they should give you a cost.

Karcher K 3.97M electric presuure washer cycles on/off.


Hi;
It has an internal water leak or a seal or valve is leaking air. These machines are warrantied for 2 years and that is about all you can expect from them. Having it repaired professionally would cost about 75% the price of a new machine. If you are handy enough to get into it yourself, e-mail me and I will send you a diagram. (firehead@rogers.com) Part prices are expensive in Canada but not bad in the US. I don't know about other countries.
