SOURCE: 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.

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 k3.98 pressure washer not holding good presure

Dear svoegele2,
Your machine is still good. You have to remove the 4 screws that are holding the head unit. The head unit consists of 2 parts. The outer part has Intake of water and delivery of water under pressure. It has an injector. It also has the chemical inlet attachment. This Detergent inlet valve can be replaced by a new one. (The bottom part of the head has the suction and delivery valves.)
Now this unit of 2 heads is held down with a steel cover. First release the holding down bolts( they could be allen screws or Torx Screws). If the inlet valve for the chemical is still good and t is turned 90 dgrees, twist it slowly to be alligned with the slot in the metal cover. But if this is broken, just remove the metal head and then remove by twisting,..the detergent inlet..(which is also a non return valve).
Carfull if you seperate the top half of the head from the bottom head...because underneath there is a smal spring and a small valve. Do not lose these.
Now if the machine has no pressure..change the bottom half of the head. If the machine is switching on and off...change the upper half f the head. Do not forget that small spring between the 2 heads If where the inlet for detergent in the head is cracked..this top head must be renewed for this reason also.
If all is OK...but only the inlet..where the detergent is broken....remove slowly the detergent inlet, by twisting a little,....and replace by a new one. First see that you have the NEW inlet of detergent before doing anything . Because if you do not find to buy a new on....and there is no damage to the upper head...you can continue using the machine,...but with out having detergent. It is better using it without detergent than throwing the machine away. One final hint. Try the machine with the plastic cover removed,..so to see if there are any leaks or cracks in the head unit.(wear safety gogles). If only the inlet for detergent is broken and no water is escaping from it or the head,...buy a new inlet detergent valve. If you do without detergent and you cannot find to buy a detergent inlet valve,...just close the machine and use it without detergent. When myself I service such machines...I change the whole head unit and detergent valve. Then the machine will be as good as new. And the spares are not that expensive. Better than buying another machine.
Regards,
Fulltech.

SOURCE: hi ive got a karcher

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.

Karcher 5/11c motor runs but no pressure


Firstly make sure the pressure set valve is turned the right way, fully anticlockwise I think.(if it has one I could be thinking of the next model up) and that the lance nozzle is in the correct position not set to detergent or mid point between positions. If that is ok it is probably the switch at the bottom of the machine. If under warranty send it back karcher switches are not good.

I have a Karcher K3.540 pressure washer. Won't take up detergent and motor pulses ever second if vari-lance increased towards maximim. Motor runs ok at lower pressure but can take 1min to start wh


This fault is within the control head, under the detergent valve is a small spring loaded valve that acts to induce the detergent, this will have failed, the shaft of the component breaks off the disk base leaving a small hole in the centre of the disk. This is enough to allow pressure past the component. The machine will pulse when operated and will not induce the detergent. I've looked everywhere to find this part as I have a karcher with the same fault.

Craftsman pressure washer #580761810 will not dispense detergent.


Karchers are known as one shot wonders, The pump used on them is an aluminum alloy that powders when you use any type of chlorine/bleach detergent in them at all. My advice is to use it as just a pressure washer and spray the detergent with a hand pump garden sprayer. The pump and parts are so expensive that its not worth the time or money to try to repair. I also feel that if you are not a monthly user of this machine it is much more cost effecient to rent one for the day when you need one.A reputible rental price is about 30 dollars for 4 hours or 50 for 24 hours.Good luck

Dear mike husband,
One reasin for this fault could be a damaged lance or turbo lance. Try by replacing with new ones. If the problem is not solved, then the fault is due to a damaged spill valve. The spill valve could easily be damaged by using not suitable chemical or detergents. After using chemical detergents, one must always rinse the machine by passing pure water. The spill valve could also be damaged by leaving the machine for a long time with pressure in the system. One must never store such machines with pressure still inside. Always press the gun before storing.
Well the solution is to change the spill valve with a new one. In some cases even faulty suction valves can give this problem. But in the majority of cases it is the spill valve.
If you do not know how to fix this problem, it is better to be done by an expirienced technician.
Regards,
MG.
