Question about Karcher PSI Electric Pressure Washer
You are looking at 2 possible causes for the resets. First is that the GFI adapter has become defective, or water has found its way inside. Either way, it will need to be replaced if it defective. Second, the GFI may be doing its job, and is sensing an AC current fault, and then tripping.
If you are trying to use it on a generator, it likely will have issues due to the nature of the neutral / grounding on the generator itself.
As for the water leak, it is possible that water is getting inside the unit where it shouldn't be, and causing the GFI fault. My pressure washer is very similar to yours, and I have to use 2 hose washers to seal off the hose connection from the garden hose. Haven't had issues with other leaks though (yet).
It is also not unusual for a repair to cost more than it is purchased for. During manufacturing, cost has been refined to be as low as possible. In a service center, the cost just from the few minutes it takes to diagnose what part has failed, and the shipping to get a replacement part usually pushes a repair towards uneconomical.
It could also be that the service center doesn't want the responsibility or liability of the repair on the electrical side.
