Question about Karcher 1750 psi Electric Pressure Washer

Craftsman 1800 psi pressure washer won't start

Brand new unit will not run. We have followed directions carefully. The pump made noise for about 3 seconds but never generated any pressure then it shut off. Have not been able to get it to come back to life. This is an electric unit and the pump is not supposed to start until the water reaches it. I know the external lines are clear and the power supply is fine, so I am thinking that there is some internal blockage. Just wondering if anyone has experience with a similar unit.
Thanks.

Disconnect the hoses to and from the machine and the try it.
the machine might have a blocked nozzle in the lance, of so get a paper clip and clear the jet backwards

These have a saftey devise on the nozzel. you need to pull the trigger, then push/pull the nossel forward. h2o will come out, then pull it back to the original location for more pressure.

you can turn the nozzel back and forth for a more narrow or more wide spray.

I just pulled mine out this afternoon and had the same problem, but was able to figure it out.

Also, make sure on the plug that you have the correct button pushed in (a light will come on).

Let us know if this solved your problem.

I bought a new 2600 psi pressure washer. It starts great. The pressure starts out fine. However, when I disengage the spray nozzle lever and then push it again there is along delay before I get any...


Hi. I think the problem may be called either vapor lock or cavitation, or it could be called something else, but the solution is to take the wand apart in the center and let the trapped water escape, then putting it back together before re-engaging the lever.

The motor overload / thermal protection is likely the cause. Check your hose and wand / nozzle for restrictions. Is this the same hose and wand that it shipped with, or is it from another machine?

Pressure Washer quit running


I have owned four of those units. Every one of them did what you are experiencing or just wouldn't give me any pressure after only a few uses. The company was certainly no help. I gave up after four and bought a heavier gas model from Lowes. Hope this info helps.

No water pressure


There is a injector valve in the water pump that is sticking. Remove this valve, grease the top o-ring and reinstall. Problem solved. Use pump guard in the future to prevent this problem from reoccuring.

NO PSI


have you checked to make sure that keyway is installed between electric motor and pump. also adjustment on unloader valve may be incorrect. If the big brass nut on the unloader is able to be turned by hand, then this is probably your problem (running pressure and spike pressure needs to be set and locked down using a pressure guage). does water come out of nozzle at all? if not, tip being stopped up may be the problem. trash between unloader ball and seat can also cause no pressure (usually caused by a burr left inside brass pieces during the manufacturing process). I have seen all the check valves stuck on a brand new unit from sitting on the shelf for so long, but this is usually the case with General Pumps.
