New rotary nozzle will not work. will spin and then stop and repeats.

By rotary nozzle do you mean the dirt blaster? or a different accessory? if it is the dirt blaster it could be that there is air in the system. take the dirt blaster lance off, then pull the trigger with high pressure untill you get a complete flow of water. then put the dirt blaster onit should work.

Another thing that could have happened is if you have bought the wrong dirt blaster for your machine as there are different types for different models.

When i connect my vario pressure lance to the gun it leaks like a sieve thus reduced pressure but when i fit my other accessories its ok???

It sounds like you have the vario lance set to low pressure or "mix". If you twist the end of the lance you can increase and decrease the pressure. The setting you have it on is for when you are applying detergent through the pressure washer hence why it is a wider low pressure jet.

please remember to thumbs up, thanks.

Folks, I have a Karcher 5.55 home water blaster that pulses at the highest pressure on the vario power spray wand. It works fine on the lower pressure settings and with the rotary spray wand. I live in a...

There should be a pressure regulator somewhere in the pump, check your owners manual or go on mfg. Site and see if you can find your model.

My engine is working or seems to be working fine on my pressure washer but there is little pressure coming through the wand when I try to clean off my sun deck. Why is this? Thank you.

There are a couple of reasons why you might get this fault. If the machine hasn't had loads of use I would suggest checking the wand for any dirt. You should be able to push and twist the lance from the handle, and then possibly the lance in half aswell. Once you have done this just firmly tap the tubes somewhere clean. If there was any dirt in the end it should dislodge and work fine again.
While you have the lance off the handle, run the machine up and make sure you are getting plenty of flow through the handle. The other problem you could have would be worn pump parts. Servicing the pump can be tricky so if this is the case I would recomend taking it to your nearest dealer/service agent.

Karcher Motor Pulese On and Off

hi mark, you do have a problem with the lance.
you need to disconnect the lance and straighten a paper clip and insert down the nozzle end.
use the machine to wash the dirt in the nozzle backward down the lance.
Dirt only in nozzle end.
if still no good, purchase some nozzle cleaners and file out nozzle very slightly.

Karcher dirtblaster does not oscerlate the water.

Stripped down the head of the dirt blaster by unscrewing the shaft from the end nozzle(it was quite tight). Removed the white disc from the nozzle using pliers and then cleaned out the 4 holes in the disc. Under the disc is an assembly which houses a ball bearing. I noticed that the ball bearing did not protude beyond the recess which houses it. I PUT TWO SMALL FIBRE WASHERS IN THE RECESS THEN REPLACED THE BALL BEARING. THEN REPLACED THE WHITE DICSC. Noting that the ball bearing protrude by approx 1/16th of an inch.
Re-assembled and the dirt blaster now works perfectly
