Question about Karcher K2.26 Electric Power Washer
Except when wand trigger is pulled. Then it works but pressure is too low. No clogs, plenty of H2O, etc.
When trigger is shut, pressure builds up in machine and this activates a control-valve or often called a Spill Valve. This Spill Valve compresses with the built up pressure and switches off a micro-switch...which in turn stops the machine. Now when this Spill Valve gets faulty, it starts compressing and de-compressing undr pressure. Thus the micro switch is activated on and off. That is why your machine is starting and stopping. Now this Spill Valve also controls pressure. So to fix the fault you must change the Spill Valve with a new one. Myself I rarely service Spill Valves. You can locate the spill valve after you open the cover. The spill valve is usually covered with a plastic cap that contains the electrical micro switch. I do not know what model you have....but sometimes to improve the pressure you must also change the suction and delivery valves. But in most cases like yours...it is only the Spill Valve that is causing the starting and stopping and the low pressure.
