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.

This may not be a motor problem. It sounds like your pump is not working properly and the motor is just following the pump. First thing to do is check for leaks in the pump, wand hose, gun etc. It may also be a blown water seal inside the pump.

SOURCE: Karcher G2600 VH - low water pressure

If the spill valve activates is "spills" water under the washer. There is a restriction or the pump has become inefficient and will not pump the volume and pressure it should at full RPM.

Karcher k3.00 lack of power


Are you using the same water supply as before when you had good pressure? Some house water lines have pressure reducers to protect your pipes and appliances. This can restrict the water flow and reduce the pressure the machine develops. If the flow surges (good, then weak, then good etc) you are not getting enough water to the pump. Try a larger diameter garden hose (5/8"). If you know where your water line enters the house, try the hose bib closest to it. Often times it is at street pressure instead of (reduced) house pressure.

My karcher k2.20 motor keeps running even when i release trigger and water is pouring out from inside the casing....


You need to get the casing out of your way so you can see exactly where the water is coming from. Best guess, just starting out, is that the pump has an "Easy-Start" valve on it that is not closing. This Easy-Start device is just a small valve that has a ball and seat and spring in it. Very simple. It allows all water flow to be diverted until the engine RPM comes up to "cranked" stage.

All that said, it could be something else entirely. So, we gotta have some eye-ball input at this point (if there doesn't seem to be an Easy-Start valve leaking).

How do I replace the surge tank on 2002 GMC Yukon. Need to check for a leak in tank. Could leak be in hose from surge tank to water puml? Can not see any water leaking except for water on right...


Surge tank?
Are you talking about the coolant reservoir? There should not be any water in the system. Only engine coolant.

Anyway, it is easy to remove the coolant tank. They are typically secured by two or three 10mm screws, and one or two hose clamps.

It is a pretty easy procedure that you can do yourself. Recommend a youtube search if you need video.

If your water is that hard (and it appears it is) WD40 will NOT solve the problem. You should look into a water softener. However, chances are that a small, inexpensive model will not have the flow capacity required for a pressure washer. You'll likely need to look at a larger, whole-house model.

Use vinegar to through the machine's "soap" dispenser to break up the hard water deposits or a heavier solvent such as CLR which is available at most retail outlets.

OUR KARCHER 2600 PSI PRESSURE WASHER W/ HONDA ENGINE WON'T START. WE BOUGHT IT A SAM'S CLUB LAST YEAR AND PROBABLY HAS ONLY BEEN USED ABOUT 4 TIMES. PLEASE ADVISE.


Hello:
Have you tried changing the gas, Especially, if it has been in the machine of a while. Also some Honda engines will not start if the oil is low. Also try removing the high pressure hose before you start it? Do not run it very long without water flowing through the pump, though.
