Hi, you are making the engine stall with having the unloader valve screwed to far down i would say, try dropping the pressure on the unloader and then try it.
the unloader valve could also be blocked.

I switch the pressure washer on motor starts pressure builds up motor stops. OK pull the trigger on the lance the moter starts sounds different water pressure low. Release trigger motor still runs.


It isnt very clear your explanation of the problem but what type washer do you have first? It sounds like you have a bad unloader or need a new variable nozzle tip. Can you explain in more clear detail. Thanks

If you have a Karcher then you should always post your machines barcode.

full article on nozzles :
http://repairshed.blogspot.com/2013/09/pressure-washer-lance-nozzles-what-you.html

The spill valve operates at approx 20% higher than specified pressure washer operating pressure. If you have any lance issues then the pressure could be running higher than specified (machine running at same pressure as spill valve operation pressure)

your machine produces a fixed flowrate of water (maybe 8 litres per minute) and your nozzle is a fixed size. the diameter of the nozzle determines the back pressure. A piece of debris could further close your nozzle orifice and increase the back pressure. Using a new lance that has the wrong nozzle fitted can also cause this issue.

The karcher barcode is on a silver sticker and is usually 15 digits long. Example 156987400000123 is actually model 1.569-874.0 and serial number 00123....

K 3.86 M, UNIT SURGES WHEN WAND TRIGGER IS RELEASED


It sounds like you have a leak on your outlet system.Please check your high pressure hose at the machine and also the trigger and lance.Check all o rings etc and replace if needed.If there was any leaks at all then this will stop the machine from surging.

I have a Kew Hobby 80. The output from the lance is not constant but pulsates.


Could be the input water pressure is not sufficient. There is a pressure valve inside the machine that will cut off the motor if input pressure is too low or non existent.

Try a different source for the water input.

turn off water and machine electrics.

remove high pressure hose from front of machine, this may be tight if there is still pressure in the system.
turn on water, when water comes out of machine hose outlet turn on machine. does the machine turn on and water flow increase, if so you probably have a blocked lance jet or trigger.

remove lance extension if fitted and fit hose back to machine, try again. If its ok then this proves you have a blocked lance jet, maybea poke about with some stiff wire will free the obstruction.

If this doesnt bring on the machine you probably have a jammed pressure switch on the pump.

this pressure switch turns on the pump when the trigger is pulled and switches the motor off when the trigger is released.

hope this helps.

Dear Davidpaulson,
There are many reasons why there is no pressure. The simplest one is try a new lance. The lance you say it is not blocked, but it could have a wider hole with wear and tear.
The second most possible reason is, faulty valves. The suction valves are the most that give low pressure when they are faulty. To check the suction valves, put on the machine in the normal way and as it is working, disconnect the water supply. Than check if air or water is blowing out from the inlet. This is not 100% but you can have a picture of the function of the suction valves.
On the other hand if you do this exercise with the outlet, after removing the gun, you can check for the delivery valves. If you feel suction at the outlet, than the delivery valves can be faulty.
If all is correct, than there must be a fault in the swash plate. This could become loose and so the pistons will stop moving. Also another fault could be broken springs.
Also if the machine is leaking, the high pressure and low pressure seals are damaged. This also lowers pressure.
Other faults are related to the famous spill valve. Also faults could be to internal water leakages, due to corrosion in heads. Finaly I like to add that a faulty electric motor, could also not deliver enough rotation and power, and this also reduces pressure. This could be rewinded or changed for a new one.
Regards,
MG.
