It probably has a crack in the plastic somewhere. very hard to see when not under pressure, as soon as the pressure hits it the o ring pops.

hope this helps ,

You purchased the wrong o-rings, the o-rings that you purchased are for the hose ends. Karcher doesn't offer the o-rings for this valve but do offer a replacement unloader valve. See attached link to read more about the revised valve or to purchase

Not sure about the o-ring problem but mine once leaked from the trigger, I found out I'd stored it without making sure it was empty of water, this had frozen & cracked something inside.

How do I get chemicals to pull through my power washer?


this is a downstream injector which will only activate under low pressure normally a black nozzle with a large hole.A good way of testing is disconnect gun and wand assembly leaving the hose on the ground turn water on let it free flow no need to start engine.You should hear or feel suction out of hose barb if not try starting motor this time but this time you need to grab the hose so that it would not swing and hurt someone with engine running causing more flow should activate it.

What would cause motor to suddenly start flooding ?


Garbage in the carbs. They have floats with a needle and seat. Trash gets stuck under the needle and cannot stop the fuel flow. The carbs, fuel system needs to be cleaned out and a large fuel filter installed to keep this from happening again.

Bosch Aquatak Clic 125 running problems - keeps pulsing and unable to reach continuous full pressure - has been working well up to now - water pressure OK


After the machine has stared the wash cycle stop the machine. Check the water level in the sump. It it is below the required fill, the pump will drain the sump, suck air resulting in pulsing.

Add a modest amount of water about a quart or so and try continuing the wash. see if it reduces the pulsing. Continue to add to determine if it is the water level.

If you confirm that the water level is low, depending on the model it usually fills on a timer. If it had been working properly then either the stop valve under the sink has allowed the internal rubber washer to dislodge into the flow path, or the inline filter at the connection to the dishwasher is clogged or the electric solenoid at the washer is failing and not allowing the water to enter at the prescribed amount.

Hope this helps?
Below the stop valve do to the hot water is known to have the rubber seal fail which can plug the hose limiting the water flow. The valve can be repaired without removing it. The stem with the house water off can be removed and a new rubber seal installed. remember to remove the debris from the failed seal.

Clean water and solution will not dispense


This is an unusual problem. The most likely reason is that the supports inside the upper handle grip have broken, and when you squeeze the trigger, the rod that opens the reservoir assembly is not pushing open the valve. If you remove the upper tank, and look behind it, you should be able to see the end of the actuating rod sitting on top of a rubber valve assembly. Squeeze the trigger and watch the rod to see if it pushes down on the valve. If it doesn't, the upper handle grip will likely need replacement. If it does push down on the rubber seal, the reservoir assembly has probably failed and may need replacement.

Was using Karcher and then suddenly no pressure. Motor seemed hot


not sure about this model but some of them had mototrs that ran constantly wether the trigger was squeezed or not.
on these models there was a pressure relief valve just inside the water hose inlet connection which have been know to work loose.
if not the above type the discount the relief valve
the water pump usually comprises of 3 pistons and various valve assemblys you would need to take the pump apart and check theses parts some had three large nuts that contain the valves .
hope this info is of some use to you

Honda pressure washer cuts out when lance trigger released.


You most likely need to set your valve clearances. If it is hard to pull over or the recoil snaps back after starting your valves need to be set for sure. This may not be the entire problem but it is a good start. Also change the spark plug, a bad plug will cause odd problems and is too cheap not to eliminate as a source. In addition check your fuel, pour a little out into a white container (I like spray paint can caps for this) and look at the color. If it is yellow to orange it is bad. You can pour it into you car, the car electronic sensors will compinsate for it quality but a small engine can't. Use a NGK BP6ES or BPR6ES plug.
You need:
Feeler gages
10mm open end wrench
14mm open end wrench
1 long shaft screw driver or rod
1 spark plug socket and ratchet

Remove the spark plug and the valve cover. Pull the recoil over slowly until the intake valve opens (intake is closes to the carb and it will go down when it opens). Now put your long screwdrive down the spark plug hole. Slow pull the engine over until the screwdriver handle is at it highest point, this is top dead center. It may take a few attempts. Now check your valve clearance between the rockers and the top of the valve. The intake should be .006 and the exhaust .008, both can be +/- .001. To adjust: hold the large nut with the 14mm then loosen the small one with the 10mm. Lefty loosey. Now turn your large nut until you get the correct setting and then tighten the small one the lock it in. It may take a few attempts and alway reverify your setting after you lock it down. Once done, find top dead center again and reverify. Now your valves are set.

Hoover Steamvac Upholstery Cleaner will not spray water.


In my case when I pulled the trigger on the upholstery hose I barely got a drizzle of water. After looking at the parts online I realized the valve assembly on the spray end of the hose consisted of a black valve housing, with an inner spring and a white plunger part that sprays the water. The white plunger should move noticeably when the trigger is pulled. Since all 3 part of that valve assembly were replaceable I decided to try and take it apart. First I removed the 2 silver screws on the cover of trigger end of the hose and lifted out the valve assemble. The white plunger part was basically frozen in the black valve assembly. Tried pulling the white plunger out by hand wouldn't budge. So I use a pair of plier and pulled the white part out. Sure enough the whole inside was caked with what appeared to be old dried cleaner. I rinsed the spring and the white plunger. There were o-rings on the white plunger, I did not remove them but used an old tooth brush to clean out around them then reassembled. The white plunger now freeing slides a noticeable distance when the trigger is depressed and getting a large V shaped spray pattern. Lesson learned, I will now make sure I run plenty of plain water through the hose to rinse all the cleaner out after using it .
