Question about Karcher 2500 PSI Pressure Washer
Hi I have a HDS 750 that has been running fine but now refuses to light the diesel in hot mode
Does anyone have any ideas
Did you check if the igniters? they may be cloged up with ****. Unscrew the Sight glass on top of the boiler and run the machine (in cold or hot mode, doesn't matter, as the igniters are running all the time) and see if there are working, you should take them out anyway and give them a wipe with a rag as general maintenance item, and when you put them back in there should be about 5mm gap between them.
Less common reasons for the boiler to not work
- Faulty fuel solenoid valve, (You should hear a click sound about 5 - 10 seconds after you pull the trigger)
- Dirty fuel filter,
Take a look at those simple things and let me know if its any of these.
I have a Karcher HDS 750 1989 Year model
This machine just keeps going, it's had a fairly tough life but it has stood up to it all,
i hadent spent anything on it until about 6 months ago when i purchased a new fuel pump for it as the old was wasn't pushing 170PSI to the Disiel injector it had slowly droped 70psi, and it doesn't create a hotter burn in the boiler, but still very good for a 19yr old pump,
other than that thats all it's needed, it's still going strong to date
Very robust machine.
