SOURCE: karcher washer went dead

Dear jimbocom,
The problem is that the spill valve got stuck. When the machine is working and the gun is closed, a valve( spill valve) moves with the accumilated pressure and switches the machine off. So what happened is that when the spill valve did its job, it found no water...and remained stuck. This leaving the machine in an off position. Service and lubrication to the spill valve must be done or completely replacing with a new spill valve. In my opinion you have no serious damage, but this job must be carried out by an expirienced technician.
Regards,
MG.

SOURCE: I have a karcher pressure

you will have to take the cover off & look for melted wires or a fuse.
if there is no fuse the capacitor may have been cooked.
it should be a white cylinder.if it has been damaged it will have burn marks and may be swollen.
replace the capacitor and it should start.

If its not the fuse in the plug it might be the on/off switch. I would check switch for continuity with a multimeter to rule it out first.

Karcher 4.91 checked fuse that is ok but no power


Check and see if you are getting power to the on/off swith. These switches have been known to go bad. Also, check the Ground fault breaker in the plug. Let me know how you make out.

The water must be switched on, and seen to be running freely from the nozzle for a few seconds before switching on the power - suggest you check the fuse in the plug, and then try the above.

Hi,

Sounds as simple a fix as " The Fuse Has Blown "
Check the fuse in the plug, and it,s Rating.
I,d assume this should be rated at 13 AMPs.
If the fuse is 3-5 amps it,s under-rated.
You should get it tested out if your not electrical minded, you may have a short circuit. live/earth et.c.
hope this helps.

Mike @ Compurepair.
