Karcher pressure washer leaking oil

Borrowed a friend's electric Karcher KB 2020 pressure washer. It is now leaking oil on my garage floor. Is it irretrievably damaged? or can I dismantle & fix. Why has it oil in it anyway?

    I specified "Electric" pressure washer. It does not have a 4-stroke engine - yes I posted it under a different Pressure washer, the site did not allow any other option!

Usually electric pressure washers only have oil on the pump, so its very likely that you will find the problem there. I'd say check all the pump seals and if that doesnt solve the problem, you can check to see if all bolts are tight when you close the pump back.
If by any chance you are looking for a new machine and/or parts for your machine, log in to www.roncoshop.com where you will be able to find pretty much anything for your preassure washer.

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)

Karcher 360M pressure washer pulsating problem when idleing


Hello,


unfortunately these little units have this problem commonly, 9 times out of 10 it will be the plastic head or the plastic valve block on the unit will be cracked and leaking slightly... it builds up pressure then leaks out and tries to build up the pressure again and this just reoccurs over and over...

you can get this repaired but is normally about half the cost of a new unit, if the pressure is still okay i would probably recommend just keep using it until it proper dies...

If you do get this fixed, we have studied into this and believe the main cause of heads cracking is warm water say if your inlet hose is in the sun for a period of time this can cause the water to become quite hot or if the unit sits and water trapped inside the head assy freezes can also cause this. Hope this helps Kind Regards Brad
