Question about Karcher 1750 Psi Elec Pressure Washer

Open Question

I have a Karcher 1750 Psi Elec Pressure Washer. When i turn it on, the motor revs, and I can see the fan start, stop, start, stop, etc. It does not appear to be getting any pressure either. Water comes out but no pressure. Any ideas what could be wrong?

SOURCE: I was using the pressure washer and it stopped

This problem, where the unit continually switches on and off when the handgun is closed, is quite common. Unfortunately it has at least six different possible causes, only two of which are easily checked. 
The first thing you can do is look for leaks.  Even the slightest leak will cause this pulsing because the unit gets up to pressure, switches off, loses pressure, switches back on again, comes back up to pressure, switches off... and so on.  This repeated switching is not good for the motor and should not be allowed to continue for longer than necessary to observe what's happening.
So... 1. Does the handgun shut off completely, or does it drip? If it drips, it may simply be because a seal has failed. The handgun can be dismantled, checked, and any defective parts replaced; be sure to lubricate O-rings with silicone grease when reassembling. As a last resort, the whole gun may need to be replaced.
2. Are there any visible leaks at the high-pressure hose screw connections?  If so, most likely an O-ring needs replacing - again lubricate the new one well with silicone grease.
3. If there are no visible leaks, either from the gun or from the connections, all other possible causes are internal within the cylinder head or control head of the pump. New parts will be needed and this normally calls for a professional repair, although it's not beyond the scope of a truly competent amateur.
I hope this helps. Any further questions, just ask! Please remember to rate this response.

thats normal, it is reducing the built up pressure that is not needed until the trigger is pulled.

Check the screen at the inlet, where the water hose hooks up. These get clogged often because bugs like to crawl up inside hoses and build nests. If it is not that, then you either have a problem with the valves (popet) or the unloader part of the pump. You will need to look at a parts break-down and access these for disassymbly to determine if they are damaged. Find replacement parts either in your owner's manual or Karcher web site or pressure washer dealer in the yellow pages. Good luck.

The water is pulsing out rather than a steady stream


it sounds like you have a air leak make sure all your fitting are tight if you have a filter make sure the filter isnt clogged if that doesnt fix it it sounds like your pumps ceramics might have been damaged in the pump its self

Motor running, water supply adequate but when


clean whole water supply and outlet from all debris, clean inlet filter as well. connect water and pressurise washer, pull trigger and wait about 3sec for pump to activate, if pump do not activate adn you have pressure from nozzle as it will be from main, this determines pressure sensor (it is extremelly rare for pump itself) is damaged.

check if you have still warranty,this will qualify as warranty repair, if warranty is expired, pressure sensor need to be replaced.

if you find my advice useful, please do not hesitate to leave your remarks and vote for me, thanx!

My Karcher K9.8 electric pressure washer started


Not Simple.
I have the same Problem, the leak is from the seam of the Manifold or on the pressure side of the Pump and the hose housing. In my case there is a small crack in the seam of the Manifold Housing. A manufacturing defect.. A New Manifold Complete Replacement about the half the price what I paid for this pressure washer at Walmart... :( If under 1 year old, and you can find a receipt,Karcher will replace the whole Pressure washer under warranty.

They are sensitive to large extention cords. My father in laws pops reset when a small cord is used. If internally shorted- motor will continually pop the reset even plugged direct to outlet. Check voltage at outlet.
