My plumber says the pump should not run constantly, but should switch on and off. It come on for about 15secs and then off. I want it to run constant, will it create problems?

Assuming you do not build up really excessive pressures and the motor is not straining, running the motor constantly is better than having it cycle periodically. Every time a motor turns on a tremendous amount of juice goes into the motor windings until the motor speeds up and the back emf reduces the current. A constantly running motor will run cooler and last longer.

My karcher k7.85 has lost pressure and the motor runs constantly when switched on ,motor only used to run when trigger pulled in on lance ,there is no leaks. Can any one help please.

Sounds like the pump seals are bad. The manual says to only use these a few minutes at a time, most people try to clean the patio etc with them, run them too long, and burn out the pump seals - don't ask me how I know this.

Pump will not stop running

It is difficult to answer the question with so few symptoms. The question would be whether the pump stops when you open the door? If not, then should checked for correct door switch, otherwise I think you need to replace the main board. If you see diagram bellow you can see that the motor is driven by the triac which is probable remain in the open position and constantly power supply motor. Some model has relay which switch between wash motor and drain motor and there is possible that relay stuck and motor also running constantly.

Heater won't go off


If you're referring to the heater "FAN" running continuously, then its likely to be your blower motor resistor.

The heater blower motor (under the dash) has constant power supplied from the battery, but is controlled by the blower "resistor" - usually mounted on the blower motor assembly. If one or more of the blower resistor coil wires are faulty, the motor will either not work on one of the fan settings, or will constantly run by itself.

Window motor on drivers side constantly runs down

Best guess would be a shorted window switch, it may have moisture in the switch or the wires are shorted or the switch needs to be replaced.

Hope this is of some help.
