Question about Karcher Hose Reel

1 Answer

I want to use the karcher K2 to clean a patio with the special housing which controls the spray. One of the lances has a 'mix'setting which is to control the draw of detergent but this does not appear to fit into the spray cover. No other lance has the mix setting. Therefore please can you tell me how I can use the detergent with the spray housing

My karcher k7.85 has lost pressure and the motor runs constantly when switched on ,motor only used to run when trigger pulled in on lance ,there is no leaks. Can any one help please.


Sounds like the pump seals are bad. The manual says to only use these a few minutes at a time, most people try to clean the patio etc with them, run them too long, and burn out the pump seals - don't ask me how I know this.

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.

No pressure on certain settings


Dear Osville,
It is not clear what type of lance or nozzel you have. You said that the machine works fine with the circulating water jet(the turbo). So it seems the machine is fine. I do sometimes service variable nozzels and variable lances. But the best solution is to replace nozzels and variable nozzles and lances with new ones. Regarding the fan spray setting it could have no pressure because it might be in the chemical setting. The chemical setting lets out a fan shape flow of water, but with less pressure. The chemical system only works on low pressure in domestic washers, that is why it needs a low pressure flat spray. The pencil jet has 2 jets comming out because if it is a lance or nozzel with ball bearings, these ball bearings must have stuck in a wrong position. Also 2 jets can come out, due to a damaged nozzel hole.
Altogether, the best advice is to buy a new nozzel or lance...which ever your machine uses. All Karcher machines have their own specific nozzels, lances and high pressure hoses. You cannot change these from one model to another.
Regards,
Fulltech.

Using detergent


The first thing to do is check the nozzle setting on your spray lance. The nozzle setting is adjustable (by twisting it) and, if it's set to high pressure, cleaning fluid will not be drawn up from the reservoir. Cleaning fluid will only be drawn from the reservoir when the nozzle is set at low pressure. (Even at the low pressure setting, this problem can occur if you use an extension high-pressure hose.)
You say the machine has never been used, so the nozzle setting is the most likely cause of your problem.  Other possible causes are highly unlikely to occur in a new machine.  If adjusting the nozzle doesn't help, I suggest you contact the dealer from whom you bought the machine.
I hope this helps.  Your feedback is valuable to me so please remember to rate this response.

Dear Pajodi,
I just came across your problem. I have just joined FIXYA, and solved various Karcher problems. First of all with all respect, the shop from where you bought the machine, must have told you all necessary instructions to operate your machine.
Now the soap always works on low pressure. So if you have a variable lance, turn it to low pressure. You can also remove the lance, and the soap will surely starts to work. With turbo lances, the soap system does not work. This concludes that the soap does not work when high pressure is used. Bigger machines do spray soap at high and low pressures. But these have regulating knobs, to swith off and on, the soap supply.

MG.

Hi hope i can help!!
Try this empty the detergent tank then have your machine ready to work then half fill the tank with warm water and use the machine, this may take a few attempts so dont think its a 5 min fix! What happends is the detergent when left in the machine goes thick and gooy the warm water thins this and eventualy cleans it out but dont use boiling hot water this may damage the seals.before storing machine away do this method.
Hope this helps .Sean
