My Karcher K3.96M power washer is leaking and does not create any power for the water. I think the pump has developed problems. The unit is 5 years old. Is it cost justified to fix it or better to go and get a new one?

SOURCE: Karcher Power Washer Problem

I had the same problem with my Karcher. The recall was lifted Aug. 0f 2007. Tried numerous people at Karcher....head of Customer Service, vice president, etc. No one returns telephone calls not even cutomer service....poor, very poor customer service. Thinking about calling Germany.

SOURCE: Washer leaking when filling up tub

Unlikely to be pump, sounds more like hose leaking, or drum seal.
Depending upon severity of leak, place a sheet of newspaper under front of m/c, pushing it as far back as you can. switch m/c on for a few secs, then switch off, remove paper and you should be able to judge where leak is.
Tilt m/c back and have a look underneath.
At 12 years old, if it looks major, I think I would replace m/c.
Plz rate my solution.
Thanks.

SOURCE: karcher 3300 G water leak out rear of unit from white plasticplug

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.

SOURCE: durabuilt pressure washer 1600psi. Water leaking

Sounds like a faulty seal around the gun. Repair might be few bucks if you take it in. But the price of the part is probably under a buck. Depends if you want to rip apart it yourself.

This sounds like it had water left in it and it froze over the winter. The motot turning on and off signals a water leak on the output side of the pump. You may have a cracked pump housing. Locate the pump and make sure nothing is leaking in that area when under pressure. looh for fine hairline cracks.

Hi My karcher k3.65 jubilee is leaking water when the pump is switched off from underneath


Hi This could be just the water inlet channel broken or split. You will need to remove the yellow cover via the screws at the back of the unit and then connect the water hose to see where the leak is coming from. If the water comes from underneath the pump then you will need a replacement pump seal kit of which you can purchase on the Internet.

I have a Karcher KB5050 it started to pulse when the trigger stopped


Is there water leaking from the bottom ? If so, then you have a leak in the pump. Bad seal or crack in the Pump.
If under 1 year old and have a receipt, Call Karcher for a warranty replacement.

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 k7.80 pressure washr


I have a Karcher K 3.86 M electric PW with a similar problem: water leaks from the pump near the outlet and the pressure surges on and off continuously at intervals of 1-2 seconds. The leak appears to be coming from a very thin crack in the plastic pump head in what I think is the "unloader" valve portion. I read elsewhere that if you leave water in these PW's and it freezes it will crack, causing leaks. I don't know how you can empty all the water out so I think we must store these PW's in areas that won't freeze in winter.
