Question about Garden
I have now also purchased a high-pressure drain and sewer cleaning kit but because of the tight coils of the hose it makes it very awkward to feed it down the drain. Has anyone found a way to straighten these hoses?

Yes take it to napa auto parts and they can cut and attach a new end which are for hydraulics. They are crimped on and meant to hold very very high pressure. I used to use a pressure washer everyday for a living and it was a tractor rental/repair shop and we used the hydraulic fitting machine on the power washer hose all the time so rest assured.

On the Kärcher, you have a bayonet mount at the base of the tip end of the pistol grip. This is where you attach different types of nozzles and gadgets after having removed the existing sprayer tube. Just push in and turn a quarter of a turn, then you pull it off the pistol grip. The hose is possible to remove from the machine as well, an ordinary threaded mount but since you need the pistol grip to regulate on/off this is probably not what you want to do. If the telescopic wand is made by Kärcher it should be very easy to snap it into place just like when you removed the sprayer tube/nozzle. If the attachment was made to fit Alto washers there is an inexpensive adapter that works very well. Good luck!

check the water filter ---high pressurehose must have bbackpressure to develop pressure so disconecting it wont acheive ,much ,if you have agood water supply ,oil in the pump--- adjust pressure by srewing the brass fitting that the pressure hose attachesto, down that is clock wise a couple of turns or so and see if that makes a difference if not seals in the pumpmay be gone tha t should show by water in the oil

It sounds like your bypass valve/unloader valve is sticking when pressure builds up in the lance,hose and head the pressure cleaner changes to a recirculate mode so it does not blow out hoses or seals or causes any damage to the unit, the bypass valve is the component that activates this sequence if that valve is stuck it will just try to continue to create pressure which in turn puts load on the engine and stalls it...
That is why it starts up straight away and only when it builds up pressure is when the engine stalls.
You would be best taking this to a qualified pressure cleaner technician as there are alot of little parts and orings plus the the head will need cleaning up and the bypass valve lubed, they may not of seen this at the service as it is hard to test a unit without the suited hose and lance... Often use will help this problem when a unit sits for a period of time that will cause issues such as this!!!
