Question about Karcher Garden
I have a Karcher Pressure Washer K3.99. When I turn it to wash, it sprays out the front and gives me only a little pressure out of the wand. I am guessing that either a hose is off or loose or I need to replace a hose. I can do that but I can't get into the housing. It requires a very unusual tool called a "Torx 15" which of source I do not have. Does anyone know either a different tool that I can use to get into the housing or where I can buy a Torx 15 other than online. Or last but not least, where I can take this pressure washer to get it fixed by a professional>
Regarding the sprays out of the front, this could be to many reasons. Most common is an inlet elbow is broken inside. Even the head could be faulty. But the most important is to open the cover. Yes you need a Torx 15. A torx 15 is a very simple screw driver, that it is not flat or philips...but it has a six ended end. The screws have six ended holes. You can very easy buy a set of screw drivers and in the set you see that you have a T15. Now it is better that the T15 has a hole at the end. This is called a security screw driver. In the screw there is a little pin in the middle...so a normal T15 will not fit. If you are lucky, all screws might be normal with out the little pin. So a normal T15 will do. I bought various sets of these TORX from ebay for a very little price. If you buy a set consisting from T10 to T20 and even T30 andT50 it will be better. You can also buy these screw drivers from a normal tool shop or iron monger. My edvice first buy a T15 to open the cover.....then see what tools you need more. This because some washers they have inside Allen Screws. So then you buy a set of Allen Keys.
The other problem for you might be from where you buy spares. This I cannot help you, because I am not from your country. So remember ..a T15 is a simple screw driver. With a cheap set of Torx and a set of Allen Keys you can fix your problem yourself. Very Simple!!!!

SOURCE: karcher k2.40r pulsates
It sems you have a blockage in the tip. If you get a grain of sand in the nozzle it will act like this. Get a piece of fine wire and poke down the nozzle to free it up.

Testimonial: "Thanks, it's fixed. The wire didn't actually clean it out, but I used my air compressor and blew into the tip. Wonderful!!"
