SOURCE: karcher pressure washer motor surging,then

You didn't say if this is a gas or electric machine. I will give suggestions for a gas model. These small engines have air and fuel filters. check both, as it sounds like its getting bad air/fuel mixture. Also try a new spark plug. If this is electric let me know, I'll new some more info.

SOURCE: karcher pressure washer leaking oil

all 4 stroke engines have oil, and 2 stroke can have a oil mixer reservoir to mix with engine gas or to lube the chains , gears, pumps.
If yours is 4 stroke as likely then the oil may be leaking at the seals to the main. (bad news)
Pressure wash it (lol) and locate the leak,
to speed up the leak you can pump some compressed air into the engine (be creative)

Hi
don't know if this will help, but when I use mine, to start the pressure up I have to turn the nozzle to fine spray then turn it to the power spray and it works every time, shouldn't have to do this but I got it for nothing.

Dear mike husband,
One reasin for this fault could be a damaged lance or turbo lance. Try by replacing with new ones. If the problem is not solved, then the fault is due to a damaged spill valve. The spill valve could easily be damaged by using not suitable chemical or detergents. After using chemical detergents, one must always rinse the machine by passing pure water. The spill valve could also be damaged by leaving the machine for a long time with pressure in the system. One must never store such machines with pressure still inside. Always press the gun before storing.
Well the solution is to change the spill valve with a new one. In some cases even faulty suction valves can give this problem. But in the majority of cases it is the spill valve.
If you do not know how to fix this problem, it is better to be done by an expirienced technician.
Regards,
MG.

SOURCE: I was using the pressure washer and it stopped

This problem, where the unit continually switches on and off when the handgun is closed, is quite common. Unfortunately it has at least six different possible causes, only two of which are easily checked. 
The first thing you can do is look for leaks.  Even the slightest leak will cause this pulsing because the unit gets up to pressure, switches off, loses pressure, switches back on again, comes back up to pressure, switches off... and so on.  This repeated switching is not good for the motor and should not be allowed to continue for longer than necessary to observe what's happening.
So... 1. Does the handgun shut off completely, or does it drip? If it drips, it may simply be because a seal has failed. The handgun can be dismantled, checked, and any defective parts replaced; be sure to lubricate O-rings with silicone grease when reassembling. As a last resort, the whole gun may need to be replaced.
2. Are there any visible leaks at the high-pressure hose screw connections?  If so, most likely an O-ring needs replacing - again lubricate the new one well with silicone grease.
3. If there are no visible leaks, either from the gun or from the connections, all other possible causes are internal within the cylinder head or control head of the pump. New parts will be needed and this normally calls for a professional repair, although it's not beyond the scope of a truly competent amateur.
I hope this helps. Any further questions, just ask! Please remember to rate this response.

I have a karcher 620m, power going to switch and coming out of switch but motor wont run, there is a white cylinderical item beside the switch with 2 wires and power isn't getting to it have you any...


The little white thing is most likely a capacitor, and only AC current affects this it blocks DC. These don't often fail, and if but if suspect, then replacement is the only way to tell?
You need to check at the actual terminals on the Motor to see if the power is getting there, it should be present at one side of the motor, the "Hot"side, and the other side or "Cold"side will contact to the Neutral wire, to complete the circuit. It is a very basic circuit.
You also need to check the motor is OK, While motor is disconnected, use a meter set to OHMS, and measure across the the motor's terminals, you should get a lowish Ohmic reading, if it is Open circuit, high Megohms, then either the Motor has "Blown" or the embedded protection fuses inside the motor have, either way the effect is the same the motor must be replaced. This is often what it is.
Below is a exploded diagram manual that may help, it's not all in English, but gives one a good idea.

The water must be switched on, and seen to be running freely from the nozzle for a few seconds before switching on the power - suggest you check the fuse in the plug, and then try the above.

Motor cuts on 2-3 seconds and then off and repeats this pattern


There are several possible causes of this problem. The three simplest to check are: 1. water supply is not sufficient, 2. water inlet strainer is clogged, 3. nozzle in the spray lance is partially blocked. After those, the most likely problems are internal and will probably require professional attention.
