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)

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: trouble with Karcher Pressure washer

Dear Pgarciax,
It is important that you must have mentioned the model number of your Karcher. Just the same I can surely say that your machine's fault lies in the "SPILL VALVE"
When the gun is open and pressure is being produced, the spill valve is in a relaxed position. Also it has at the bottom a valve, which when pressure is produced it is closed. If this does not close due to dirt or corrosion, the pessure goes down. Now when you close the gun,pressure forces the spill valve down to close the electrical system. Now if the "o" rings of the spill valve are damaged, the machine will start going on and off while in stand-by. So if you know how to locate the Spill Valve, all one has to do is change it with a new one.
In some Karcher machines there are 2 spill valves. One regulates pressure and the other one is for switching off the machine when the gun is closed.
Low pressure could also be due to faulty suction or delivery valves. Most probably the suction valves.
But when saying that there are short interruptions while in stand by, I stick to the fact that the spill valve needs renewing.
Regards,
MG.

You have a blockage in the nozzle. Try cleaning the jet out with a piece of wire and compressed air. You should be able to see through the nozzle when held up to the light.

Started smoking, but good water pressure


This certainly is a fault in the electric motor. Try the machine without load. That is...remove gun completely.
If smoke still appears....windings in electrical motor are damaged.
Myself I prefer to change motor than to rewind. More than that...safety is my policy. If in doubt and you see it is going to get expensive, consider a new machine. If possible the same model if you agree. In this way you can turn to your old machine for certain spares.
Thanks,

Karcher 2400 psi with honda motor started up big puff of white smoke from exaust it shut off noiw wont start whats going on


I have a john deere 3000psi pressure washer with similar problem. Running fine then a puff of smoke and it shut down. I checked the oil and found it full of water. Not only that but since I still had the water turned on, the water was flowing out of the dip stick tube. I'm trying to find a solution online and will pass any information on.

if its just a plug, remove it with an allen key and wrap a couple layers of teflon tape around it. That should stop, or at least slow down any leaks that are coming out of the threads.

Karcher pressure washer


I had same problem won't build pressure. go to http://www.wmpcs.com/index.php?main_page=page&id=14 and see diagram. I pulled white plastic cover off top of pump (2 torx screws), remove main pump from gas motor otherwise you wont be able to get at the valve below. The important part is the valve below the the white plastic piece, it has a raised slot and mine was stuck in there. I used needle nose pinched together with pliers to lift it straight up. After wd40 and cleaning the hole and valve it should pop in and out easy. Put everything back mine worked like a charm after that. So at least I know what the problem is. Great powerwasher-I use for house painting part time and love it.
