Karcher 3300 G water leak out rear of unit from white plasticplug
I have a karcher 3300G water is leaking badly out of a white plug in the rear of the unit. Looks like a simple plug that was inserted with an allen key (large one) well should be a rather cheap and easy fix right?
Karcher tech support is non existant and their service dealer network wont help anyone with parts only if I wanted to bring it in for top cost. Im not sure Karcher even has a tech support department. Obviously I wont be buying anything from Karcher again but in the mean time I got this power washer leaking badly any thoughts?

If it's leaking it obviously has a bad seal or is broken. I would try to disassemble and see if it has a seal or not. Sounds like you could have a bad "O" Ring or some other type of seal leaking but I'd bet on an "0" Ring damaged or wore out. Dissemble it and see what is sealing it and proceed accordingly. Gillight
Coffee leaking into the drip tray could be from the brew unit or the
front door assembly. Water leaking probably means a hose connection to
the boiler has failed. Don't just leave it, fix leaks immediately.
Besides the electrical danger, the rust on working parts from long term
leaks can be extensive.
Are you confident? Operate the machine
with all covers off to see where the leak comes from. Be extremely
careful, ready to pull the plug at any moment. Touch nothing inside!
Burning, scalding and electrified! Check both boilers very closely while
making coffee, most leaks become obvious on close examination.
leaks are due to failed o-rings in the connectors at the end of the
teflon hoses, usually at the coffee boiler. Replacing the o-rings should
stop the leak.
Source replacement o-rings. Slide the hairpin
c-clip out of the side of the white connector and pull the teflon hose
out. Fish the old o-ring out of the connector with a small hook or point
if it didn't come out with the hose. Place the new o-ring over the end
of the hose, snug against the brass collar. push the hose back into the
coupling being careful to go straight and true so as not to damage the
new o-ring. Some force may be required, be careful not to kink the hose.
Blunt needle nose pliers to push the rear of the brass collar usually
does it. Replace the c-clip and test for further leaks before
Hi This could be just the water inlet channel broken or split. You will need to remove the yellow cover via the screws at the back of the unit and then connect the water hose to see where the leak is coming from. If the water comes from underneath the pump then you will need a replacement pump seal kit of which you can purchase on the Internet.
Most likely your air filter is plugged or dirty, or the crank case vent valve needs to be cleaned.if it still does it check that the oil level is at the full mark, if overfilled it would cause the same problem.
