What is the maximum water temp my machine can take?

The manufacturers do not recommend more than 120deg inlet temp. Overheating is a comon and serious problem for these high RPM direct drive pumps. Heat builds whenever the trigger gun is not pulled. Some pumps have special "hot pack" kits available, but even that maxs out at 160deg. Most real washers made for hot water, heat the water after the pump, not before. Special separate Hot Boxes are available for 2k or so.

Can i use karcha hose on a northern stsr pressure washer

Yes. Both brands use M22 (22MM) hose fittings. You will need to check that the Karcher hose is rated to a high enough pressure for your washer, especially if it is a thermoplastic hose as they tend to be rated for 2500 PSI.

I have bought a diesel pressure wash but it only runs on cold. i have been told it needs a fuel pump to run on hot water. how would i fit one of these?

to have a hot water 170 deg+ or steam pres washer 220+ you for one need to have a pump and hoses/equipment rated to handle such high temperatures. Secondly you would need to add a burner to acheive that. You connect your water to the burner which then heats the water and pumps it to the pres washer. There are complete combos new for around 3k and up burner attachments by themselves normally start around a thousand dollars. You can check northern tool suplly website or any other for more detail. These are mostly used in commercial and industrial applications to remove grease,oil,solidified chemical residues and biproducts.

Had the Northstar 3000 psi Pressure Washer for 2 months and it started leaking oil from the pump during use. Took it to Northern and they are replacing the pump under warranty but said it was likely...

It is easy to check if your hose and quick connects are supplying enough water to the pump. Your pressure washer gallon per minuite requirements are printed on the machine and also on the pressure tips in GPM. Your post indicates 2.5 gpm but check your documentation of GPM. Next remove the tip from the wand and connect your hose with current quick connects to the machine. Start engine and direct the pressure wand into a bucket for exactly one minute. Measure the amount of water in the bucket, it should be very close to stated gallons. Do the same test with tip installed and compare measurement. If pump is starving for water you will not get proper amount of water in the bucket and the water hose will collapse. Two to four gallons of water per minute is not very demanding and should be delivered even with very small opening. You can even just direct the hose into the bucket for one minute and check how much water your hose is capable of delivering. I believe that you will find no problem with water delivery to pump. I would certainly enlighten Northern with your findings and question their evaluation. When you start using your pressure washer again try using it at lowest pressure to get the job done. Lowering the pressure to about 75% of max will increase the life of the pump and engine. Good luck with you pump
