There is a paper gasket there which has failed.
Replacement is your only fix.
It will require tear-down, and hand-fabricated gasket, as manufacturer does not support it with replacement parts.
K111 is not a valid model #
SEE HERE for a listing of all their residential washers.

Thanks for using FixYa!!

What is this problem - Karcher 3.86 electric pressure washer: humming noise, plug gets very hot, then unit shuts down?


Your pressure washer is either not fitted with a run/stop device in which case like mine you have to switch off within a few seconds of closing the trigger. Check your model features?
The humming noise is the motor stalled out against the pump because there is nowhere for the water to go. The shutoff is caused by the safety overload switching off after overheat.
Or, it has a pressure operated run/stop which is not working. Because water and electricity don't mix, I would suggest getting more specific help. You can download Karcher manuals /spares lists online from Karcher specialists but remember electricity is the silent killer.

It's a Karcher presure washer K2.54, one and a half years old. Was working fine last time but when turned on now there is very little pressure through the hose and the water seems to be filling up inside...


this sounds like the seals may have been damaged inside the pump or that the water inlet/outlet could be damaged. If you take off the front cover (use a star bit screw driver) then run the pressure washer you will be able to see were it is leaking from and then you can get the right part to replace it.

Motor running, water supply adequate but when


clean whole water supply and outlet from all debris, clean inlet filter as well. connect water and pressurise washer, pull trigger and wait about 3sec for pump to activate, if pump do not activate adn you have pressure from nozzle as it will be from main, this determines pressure sensor (it is extremelly rare for pump itself) is damaged.

check if you have still warranty,this will qualify as warranty repair, if warranty is expired, pressure sensor need to be replaced.

if you find my advice useful, please do not hesitate to leave your remarks and vote for me, thanx!

Hi My karcher k3.65 jubilee is leaking water when the pump is switched off from underneath


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.

Leaking water


Screws, lots of them on the back side of the unit. May be torx type. Once taken out, the top cover should come off.

Electric Karcher pressure washer surging when turned on


Dear firenutt681,
One simple thing you can do, is to check for leaks. Check if hose at machine is leaking. Check gun if it is leaking. You can also check if water still comes out of lance nozzel. These leaks however so small, will cause the machine to surge.
Another reason is due to a faulty SPILL VALVE. This spill valve( often called CONTROL VALVE) will contract when the gun is closed. When it contracts under the enclosed pressure it will switch off the machine by means of a Micro Switch. Now if this Spill valve is faulty it will loose its compression under pressure and puts on the micro switch again. This can be seen once in a while or more frequent, as in your case. I sometimes do service Spill Valves, but mostly I replace them with a new one. I do not know the model number of your machine, but normally you have to open the cover and you should spot the spill valve on the head. Most probably you see a thick wire or a cap containing the micro swith. If you find the micro switch, you have found the spill valve. Sometimes it is a bit hard to pull out the spill valve. Myself, in various Karcher models I remove the spill valve by trying to feed water and put on a bit the machine. In this way the spill valve will be spitted out.
Another reason which makes your machine surge, is leakage from from the detergent inlet.
If you do not see no leakages at all....then for sure it is the SPILL VALVE.
If you cannot do this job yourself or you do not find spare parts...you can continue using the machine as it is...but before closing the gun...switch off the electricity. I only recommend this in an emergency. You do this so that you do not leave the machine surging. This surge will for sure damage the electric motor and the capacitor (assuming it is single phase).
Regards,
Fulltech.

Water coming out of washer


Depending on the model of the machine, it is most likley a cracked control head or split outlet elbow. Remove the covers and run the machine to locate the source of the leak. Ifit is the control head it will spray water from the top just behind the chemical inlet elbow.

Karcher K3.92 M 1750 PSI poweer Washer motor won't start. Followed Reset/Test/Reset sequence with cord plugged directly into outlet. Light on cord near Reset comes on when Reset pressed down but goes off...


They are sensitive to large extention cords. My father in laws pops reset when a small cord is used. If internally shorted- motor will continually pop the reset even plugged direct to outlet. Check voltage at outlet.
