Don't know this model intimately but it looks similar to the Karcher which is really total **** nowadays as its all made of plastic. The motor has a weird switch mechanism but if it tries to run and the motor doesn't then 100:1 the motor is seized. Very unlikely it's the actual motor but the pump is a "swash" plate that opens 3 stainless steel thin flat valves. the bearing that the pump shaft goes through is a phospher-bronze plain bush with a seal each side and if this has dried out then you are screwed. Same if you model has steel roller bearings. However, if it does run and build up pressure and it stops because the output pressure is too high then the overload pressure switch is faulty. If it is the Karcher type then again you are stuffed but if it is similar to the Nilfisk then a replacement is available for around £100 GB Pounds - probably cheaper to buy a new one.

SOURCE: Power washer motor will not kick in. I've got a

Hi and welcome to FixYa I am Kelly. When an electric pressure washer sits for an extended time the residual water inside the pump eventually starts the corrosion process. In as little as 2 or three months enough corrosion can form inside the pump to freeze the pistons in the pump and of course the motor in place. Here is what you can attempt to try and free the pistons. Place the unit on a piece of cardboard and then slowly introduce a light weight oil into the water supply connection. You will need to ensure you add enough oil that you start to notice it at the pressure hose connection. Let this sit overnight on the cardboard.

Next day you need to attempt several rapid off and on sequences (10 at a time less than 1 second each) using the torque of the motor to momentarily make micro movements of the pistons. Let the unit sit for 30 mins if it did not clear and try it again (10 more times rapid on/off cycles) Let it sit another 30 minutes and make the final attempt to get the pump free.

It most likely will free up by doing this but if the interal corrosion / debris is too much your faced with having to physically remove the corrosion by opening the unit and doing repair.

Pressure washer won't run

What is this problem - Karcher 3.86 electric pressure washer: humming noise, plug gets very hot, then unit shuts down?


Your pressure washer is either not fitted with a run/stop device in which case like mine you have to switch off within a few seconds of closing the trigger. Check your model features?
The humming noise is the motor stalled out against the pump because there is nowhere for the water to go. The shutoff is caused by the safety overload switching off after overheat.
Or, it has a pressure operated run/stop which is not working. Because water and electricity don't mix, I would suggest getting more specific help. You can download Karcher manuals /spares lists online from Karcher specialists but remember electricity is the silent killer.

I own a GBG power 2000 pressure washer and I cannot get it to run. It will hum for 3 seconds and then trip the reset.


Release the trigger pressure to allow for start up. Sounds like motor jambed by pressure build up. After motor is running it should be okay.
