Question about Karcher 26408500 Pressure Washer 25Foot ExtensionReplacement Hose

1 Answer

Bought suction hose for karcher in order to use water from bucket. Have attached hose but there is no water being sucked from the bucket . One side of hose attached to washer the other dropped in bucket is this right? The end in the bucket has no suction, and a depressable valve that seems to be impeding the water suction. Do I remove this valve ?

SOURCE: karcher washer went dead

Dear jimbocom,
The problem is that the spill valve got stuck. When the machine is working and the gun is closed, a valve( spill valve) moves with the accumilated pressure and switches the machine off. So what happened is that when the spill valve did its job, it found no water...and remained stuck. This leaving the machine in an off position. Service and lubrication to the spill valve must be done or completely replacing with a new spill valve. In my opinion you have no serious damage, but this job must be carried out by an expirienced technician.
Regards,
MG.

Dear johnny_river,
In general there are many causes why soap is not sucked. In a domestic and various other machines the soap is only sucked in low pressure. So one thing you can try is remove the nozzle or the complete lance from your gun. This will give a low pressure. If you attach a pipe directly to the machine soap inlet, and soap is not sucked, than the soap valve is "stuck closed" with soap. It is important that one must work with fresh water after using soap. This to flash the system from any soap left. So in a few words attach a pipe directly to the nipple at the machine and use low pressure. Important , you do not have to use soap to test....use fresh water. If this works( which it should)...than service the flow control tap or change it altogether.

SOURCE: How do you clean the unloader valve on a power washer pump?

The unloader valve usually is replaced. I dont know if you can get o-rings for it. But if you want to take it apart, there will be a crown or cap style nut just below the spring. Unscrew it completely and you will be able to remove the spool. There is just a series of o-rings on it.

SOURCE: Cant change the high pressure hose on a Karcher

On the Kärcher, you have a bayonet mount at the base of the tip end of the pistol grip. This is where you attach different types of nozzles and gadgets after having removed the existing sprayer tube. Just push in and turn a quarter of a turn, then you pull it off the pistol grip. The hose is possible to remove from the machine as well, an ordinary threaded mount but since you need the pistol grip to regulate on/off this is probably not what you want to do. If the telescopic wand is made by Kärcher it should be very easy to snap it into place just like when you removed the sprayer tube/nozzle. If the attachment was made to fit Alto washers there is an inexpensive adapter that works very well. Good luck!

It will not pick up the water. Help !!!!!


Problem #1 - My Steamvac is not Sucking!
If your Hoover Steamvac was working properly and suddenly it is not sucking any water, nine times out of ten, the culprit is the lid on the lower recovery tank. The lid on the lower tank (or dirty water tank) needs to hinge at the front and snap down at the back in order to creat a proper seal. If the lid snaps on but is not locked on at the front, you will not get any suction. Simply take the lid off, and ensure that when you put it back on, it must hinge on the front tabs of the tank.
Problem #2 - My Steamvac is still not Sucking!
Right now you are thinking that you shouldn't have let your brother borrow your Steamvac. And you are right, because he used the hose attachment and returned it with the hose still attached to the front of the tank (some models only). Now when you try to use it there isn't any suction. In this case, you are missing your tank duct. On models where the stair/upholstery hose attaches to the front of the recovery tank, one must remove a square plastic piece in order to attach the hose. This square plastic tank duct must be replaced before the Steamvac will operate properly in the upright position. hope this helps ive copied it

Can I use karcher water suction hose with karcher k.26 ?


When using harvested water, it is most important that the water supply is above the machine. The gravity will help a lot. The higher the better. Also if the diameter of the supply hose is big, it will help the output flow.

Clear rubber hose is off machine-what does it do? I've lost the owner's manual and cannot remember how to use the electric washer. Does that short clear rubber hose with a fine filter on one end...


The clear hose with a filter on the end is a cleaning solution pick-up tube. It attaches to the washer near where the pressure hose attaches to the machine. There is ususally a barbed hose fitting for it to slip over. If you are using the black, low pressure, soap tip the hose will allow the machine to pick up cleaning solution either from a bucket or straight from the bottle, mix it in the water and spray it out on whatever you are cleaning. It will not work if you have one of the high pressure tips on the wand. They are usually red, yellow, white or green.

Hi i have a k3.65 jubilee model when switched on it constantly surges and the water pressure is not as good as it was its only 10 months old.any advice


Have the hose pipe running into a bucket/container and use another short length of hose from the pressure washer to **** the water out of the bucket, that way if the bucket is full when you start, any drops in mains pressure wont affect the pressure washer as their should always be a reservoir or water to keep constant pressure.( you may need to prime the suction hose first, just hold the 2 hoses together in the bucket of water with pressure washer on)
Any questions ask
If this helps please rate me

Machine filled with water, but now won't continue with the cycle. How do I get the water out?


The easiest way is to siphon the water out with a hose. A small diameter plastic hose or tubing works the best.
Stick the hose in the water and drawn water up the hose or tubing by sucking it up...then either slide your finger over the end quickly so that the water doesn't drop out or lower your head till it is bellow the water level and stick the end of the hose in a bucket.
The water will flow right over the side and iinto the bucket.
Keep the end in the water or you will lose the suction. also keep the end outside the washer lower then the water level so it will continue to run.
This takes a bit of practice but will go easily once you get the hang of it...

I hope that this will help you to solve your problem!

Thanks for using Fixya!!

Vaccum has no suction


Here is what we did to fix the problem of our vacuum having no suction.
We unscrewed the three screws on the back and took the hose off of the vacuum.  Then we took the hose outside and put the water hose through the vacuum hose and turned on the water.  After about 30 second the water pushed through a dust bunny the size of a fist and a marker.  Basically, the vacuum did not have suction because the hose was clogged with dust, etc.  After reassembling the vacuum, it worked just fine.

Suction


Opening that door and attaching the hose will let the suction go thru that hose. So if when you removed the hose, if that door isn't closed tight will cause you to have a suction problem It has to seal and have no leaks. The other thing when be a problem with the recovery tank not sealing when you put it back on. Other then that, any air leak will cause a suction problem.
