Sounds like a bad switch or a ground fault issue. I have also seen engine governors that do not kick in quick enough and causes a problem

SOURCE: Karcher 3.97M Short cycles after trigger is released.

Dear csdamman,
There is a valve called the spill-valve. It is often called the control valve. This valve activates the micro-switch. When the gun is released, pressure builds up and compresses this spill valve. At the same time it puts off the micro-switch. This will then stop the machine. Now when the spill valve is faulty it cannot hold compreesion under pressure so it starts de-compressing and starts the machine again. This goes on in a cycle as you explained. So you have to change the spill valve. If the spill valve that operates the micro-switch is part of the upper head,...then the whole head must be renewed. Myself I rarely service Spill Valves. The best thing is to renew it. From your explanation it seems that you did not take notice of this Spill-Valve. Infact when you mentioned Pressure Switch, I do not know if you are refering to the spill valve. If you are....then saying that the Pressure Switch moves and operates freely, does not mean that it is OK.
In certain machines in the outlet...there is a small valve, coloured black and red or green and yellow. This sometimes when faulty, it gives the fault you mentioned. Sometimes an inlet valve gives the fault you mentioned. But from my expirience it is most of the time that the Spill-Valve is the fault.
Regards,
Fulltech.

Champion 71000i generator overloads


Can you provide more detail on this? Such as under what conditions it overloads, and how much power you're drawing off of it? Keep in mind that generators have two ratings: Sustained Load and Peak Load. Mine, for example, can handle a sustained load of 1,750 watts, and can handle short-term peak loads of 2,000 watts. Note also that if you're running a microwave, they take a lot. So does anything with a motor in it (refrigerator, etc) on initial start up. Once you've added up all your loads, adjust to where you're within your generator's sustained load and you should be fine.

My karcher k7.85 has lost pressure and the motor runs constantly when switched on ,motor only used to run when trigger pulled in on lance ,there is no leaks. Can any one help please.


Sounds like the pump seals are bad. The manual says to only use these a few minutes at a time, most people try to clean the patio etc with them, run them too long, and burn out the pump seals - don't ask me how I know this.

Makita HR3000c green light comes when trigger depressed but doesnt work


From the owner's manual: Indicator lamp The green power-ON indicator lamp lights up when the tool is switched ON. If the indicator lamp is lit but the tool does not start, the carbon brushes may be worn out, or the electric circuit or the motor may be defective. If the indicator lamp does not light up and the tool does not start, the ON/OFF switch or the mains cord may be defective.

The easiest to check is the brushes. Most newer tools have brushes with a spring loaded pin in them so when they wear down the pin pops and stops the motor so you don't wear the armature. Even without the pin the wire from the contact to the brush is short so the spring doesn't contact and ruin the armature. If the brushes are OK, you'll have to check the switch for continuity.

My casio exilim ex-z60 wont switch on, I put battery in charger for hours and light flashed red constantly (overnight) so I plugged it into the computer with USB but nothing????


Thank you every one who posted solutions.
I was all set to try the 9 volt trick until i realised i didnt have one so i tried someone else's suggestion of constantly re-inserting the battery until the red light stays constant. Touch wood, but it seems to have worked.

Champion VR7F will not restart without hitting reset switch.


Solved this problem. It required a new motor starter (or at least one component from the starter. The main power lead running to the thermal overload relay had oxidized and was conducting current poorly. Each time it would run ( I did this with the motor starter cover off) the lead going to the bottom side of the thermal overload would spark then glow red during the tank fill. I removed the bad section of wire, and installed a new thermal overload in the starter.

Lamp light flashing, won't stay on.


You need to count the flashes (if it is just not constant) as that is an error code to service personnel. It could be anything from a lamp ready to burn out or thermal overload, or something else. The flashing code is important for service. Docs are available on the internet for this service data.
