Question about Karcher 2500 PSI Pressure Washer

Open Question

HI, I have a Karcher Model K2400 and the pump stopped working. I took it apart and found the 'cheese head' screw had broken. there didn't appear to be any other problem with the pump so i am replacing the screw only. my question is how much pump oil should be put in the reservoir upon assembly as there doesn't appear to be a fill/drain plug?

SOURCE: replace pump on a darcher k2400 hh pressure washer

There is a bolt item 8 below on the very end of the drive shaft that has to be removed before you can remove the pump assembly.

See page 16 item 8 of this Manual: (<-click and download

Then you should be able to remove the pump.

SOURCE: Removing unloader valve

You can hook it up to the water supply but many times you are going to have to start the unit up to get the unloader to come out. I would recommend putting something over the top of the pump so when it comes out you don't lose a eye. If you still have an issue with it not coming out you are going to have to pour some white vinagur down the cylinder and let it sit for a couple hours, this will breakdown any build-up inside the cylinder.

Dyson power head stops but can be started immediatly


Just had the same problem. Took apart whole power head to look for broken wire and found none. If you see part way up the hose there is a coller with 4 torx screws holding together. This collar is a swivel that allows the hose to spin without twisting or kinking. Take the 4 screws out and open up. You will see 3 contacts that look like fingers that rub on 3 mating steel rings. Wipe the tips of the fingers and wipe clean the rings. Gently bend the fingers out wards so that they apply more pressure to the steel rings. Reassemble and try. Should take no more than 15 mins. Worked for me good luck!

When i switch my karcher on the motor makes o noise and does not turn


This sounds like you may need a new capacitor. It is not a costly part to get. What the capacitor does is "jump starts" the motor so if it broken the motor will not start.

A test you can do is if you take off the front caseand then set the machine up as if you were going to use it. then when you turn on the machine quickly push the fan blade of the motor with a flat headed screw driver. If this makes the machine start to work, then you know that you need a new capacitor.

Just be carefull when doing the test.

Please remember to thumbs up :)

If you can't get it out with needle nose pilers try turning the garden hose pressure on and the water should pop it out.

Karcher pistol gun has broken


i do not think there is a pressure release valve , sounds like the plastic inside the pistol has become brittle and has failed under pressure , you dont say how old the pistols are ? and if you run strong detergents through them .
