Is there a leak from the bottom ?
If so then there is a crack in the Manifold housing. A New Manifold Complete Replacement is approx. $61.03, can be purchased from Karcher.
If under 1 year old, and you can find a receipt, Karcher will replace the whole Pressure washer under warranty.

Winterizing your Pressure Washer


Once again it's that time of year to get your pressure washer prepared for the cold months ahead. Proper winterization will protect your pump from the freezing of excess water in the pump over the winter. There are many ways to winterize your pump; we like to classify it as the good, better and best.<br /> <br /> Good: (Gasoline powered) Leaving your machine in the off position with the high pressure hose disconnected pull the recoil rope 4 to 5 times or until you don't see any more water coming out of the high pressure end of the pump. (Electric powered) Disconnect your high pressure hose, turn the machine on for 5 to 10 seconds or until you don't see any more water coming from the high pressure end of the pump.<br /> Better: If you have a air compressor around the house, hook the air line to the garden hose end of the pump and blow the water out until you don't see any more water coming out of the high pressure end of the pump.<br /> Best: Purchase Karcher's Pump Guard, follow the simple directions that come with the product. This product is specially formulated to keep your pump from freezing, corrosion, premature wear, adds lubricant to the valves and seals to prevent sticking in the spring. You can usually get 2 or 3 uses from one bottle of Karcher's Pump Guard. <br /> <br /> <a href="http://www.wmpcs.com/blog/?p=63">Visit this link to read more</a>

Low pressure on the pressure washer


Most likely your "O" rings or seals have gotten hard and are leaking. Sorry I don't know your equipment well enough to tell you how to change them but you can most likely find the info at your manufactures web site.

My Karcher K9.8 electric pressure washer started


Not Simple.
I have the same Problem, the leak is from the seam of the Manifold or on the pressure side of the Pump and the hose housing. In my case there is a small crack in the seam of the Manifold Housing. A manufacturing defect.. A New Manifold Complete Replacement about the half the price what I paid for this pressure washer at Walmart... :( If under 1 year old, and you can find a receipt,Karcher will replace the whole Pressure washer under warranty.

New nozzle, plenty of water, but no pressure.


It is warrantied for 1 or 2 years. Low pressure could be due to the un-loader valve needing grease. If it is leaking it will not work properly. If it is stored somewhere cold during winter months the small parts inside will crack.

Karcher 211 - no motor action


Dear Tigger82 (also montaver2000),
This explaination is relavent to various Karcher models, especialy your model. When you are using the machine with the gun open....presurised water comes out of the lance. When you close the gun, the machine stops. This happens by means of a Spill Valve or often called the Control Valve. When the gun is closed, this spill valve cotracts with built up pressure and at the same time works on a miro switch which cuts the electricity....and thus stops the electric motor. Now in many cases when the gun is again opened, this spill valve sticks and keeps the electric circuit closed.
In all cases you must open the cover, and locate this spill valve. Sometimes it is easy to see a micro switch on it. If you remove the miro switch from the spill valve the motor will for sure turn.
Now the spill valve gets stuck for many reasons. One of the reasons is that you leave the machine under pressure for a long time and even store away the machine with pressure still in the system. A spill valve also gets stuck due to detergent. I sometimes service the spill valve and lubricate with special solicon grease. But the best way is to change the spill valve with a new one. So in a few words, the spill valve is stuck and leaving the microswitch off. So the electric motor cannot turn. One final hint is that sometimes the spill valve is difficult to remove. So all one has to do is attach water supply and switch on the pump. With the pressure produced the spill valve will be pushed out. In my oponion this job must be done by a person who knows what he is doing. Carefull that you have safety electrical breakers. See that you have safety shoes, safety gloves and eye protection.
Regards,
Fulltech.

Losing pressure somewhere


Hi, I work in the italian factory of Karcher. In my opinion the problem is caused by the breaking of the collector. This is a black component of plastic where is inserted the detergent suction valve and the safety valve. To replace this component you have to go in a repair center Karcher.
