Karcher electric pressure washer help starting


The test / reset buttons are for a Ground Fault Interrupter built into the cord / washer. This device will help prevent deadly electric shock in the event of a malfunction - it is the same technology used in "GFI" electrical outlets located in bathrooms, outdoors, basements, etc.

You should have this serviced - or replaced before using.

Good luck!

Is there a fuse on model no jvm1540dn1ww


There should not be a fuse on your washer- what is usually the problem here you have a reset button the power cord- also be sure to check if you are plugged to a GFI circuit-
if this is the case unplug the power cord-
reset the GFI outlet (wall plug)-
plug your power cord back into wall-
and push in the reset button-

Karcher problems


Check to see if there is a red button on the motor. If there is it is likely an electrical reset button. Push it in and check to see if there is power. Try a different power outlet as you may have blown the electrical breaker on the power supply from the building.

It won't start. when I push the test reset button it attempts to come on for a second then nothing. I changed outlets and same thing happens. before I did this the water would come out of the nozzle...


Had a similar problem with a Karcher that I own, after a little troubleshooting it turned out to be the big plug end with the reset in it, I took the plug end apart and found the contacts inside had melted thus not allowing proper contact of the reset button, I opted for a cheap way out, instead of ordering a replacement reset plug assy i changed it over to a regular 3 prong gfi plug end, been working great the past few seasons,hope this helps

McCullock Powerwasher FHH18A - All hooked up, but pump won't turn on. Is there another switch/button somewhere?


look for 2 things. 1. the GFCI button on the plug, you may have to press the 'reset' button to turn it on. 2. there may be a reset button on the motor or the unit somewhere this will usually be round, and often red, but maybe black also. hope this helps

Motor will not come on


There is a red button at the rear of the motor and if you push it the motor is reset and it should work. Make sure that the amps on the electrical plug is 15 amps anad above. Most household amps are less than that and if it is 15 and above it has a lot of outlet connected to it. The best one I have found is the outlet near the washer and dryer. Good Luck

Karcher K3.92 M 1750 PSI poweer Washer motor won't start. Followed Reset/Test/Reset sequence with cord plugged directly into outlet. Light on cord near Reset comes on when Reset pressed down but goes off...


They are sensitive to large extention cords. My father in laws pops reset when a small cord is used. If internally shorted- motor will continually pop the reset even plugged direct to outlet. Check voltage at outlet.
