Question about Garden

1 Answer

I have just changed all the valves on my pressure washer and it works fine up to increasing the pressure to max.It then starts to surge until I turn the pressure down. It then returns back to normal it seems the motor starts and stops very quickly when on high pressure. the model of my karcher is a 432m super.

SOURCE: Electric Karcher pressure washer surging when turned on

Dear firenutt681,
One simple thing you can do, is to check for leaks. Check if hose at machine is leaking. Check gun if it is leaking. You can also check if water still comes out of lance nozzel. These leaks however so small, will cause the machine to surge.
Another reason is due to a faulty SPILL VALVE. This spill valve( often called CONTROL VALVE) will contract when the gun is closed. When it contracts under the enclosed pressure it will switch off the machine by means of a Micro Switch. Now if this Spill valve is faulty it will loose its compression under pressure and puts on the micro switch again. This can be seen once in a while or more frequent, as in your case. I sometimes do service Spill Valves, but mostly I replace them with a new one. I do not know the model number of your machine, but normally you have to open the cover and you should spot the spill valve on the head. Most probably you see a thick wire or a cap containing the micro swith. If you find the micro switch, you have found the spill valve. Sometimes it is a bit hard to pull out the spill valve. Myself, in various Karcher models I remove the spill valve by trying to feed water and put on a bit the machine. In this way the spill valve will be spitted out.
Another reason which makes your machine surge, is leakage from from the detergent inlet.
If you do not see no leakages at all....then for sure it is the SPILL VALVE.
If you cannot do this job yourself or you do not find spare parts...you can continue using the machine as it is...but before closing the gun...switch off the electricity. I only recommend this in an emergency. You do this so that you do not leave the machine surging. This surge will for sure damage the electric motor and the capacitor (assuming it is single phase).
Regards,
Fulltech.

This may not be a motor problem. It sounds like your pump is not working properly and the motor is just following the pump. First thing to do is check for leaks in the pump, wand hose, gun etc. It may also be a blown water seal inside the pump.

You should put 'locktite' on the male thread and screw it in all the way and lock it there. That is how it works ,the spring keeps the valve at the bottom closed during high pressure operation. When the gun is released the part with the o-ring is forced down resulting in the valve opening and then the pressure is by-passed.Those dont normally give trouble. Look for a blocked nozzle or a restriction somewhere in your high pressure hose.

On my brute 2500 psi pressure washer when I let go of the trigger it kills the motor. I changed the unloader valve and still does it . Any suggestions? Thanks


Excessive pressure can stall out a motor. Try reducing by adjusting unloader valve. Clockwise turn will increase pressure, counter clockwise turn will reduce.

Honda blackmax 2600pressure washer will not start


Is the gas tank topped off? Is the water hose plugged into it and turned on? Is the gas valve open instead of closed? is the throttle turned on fully? Is the spark plug wire attached all the way? Should work after all of this.

Pump will not unload.


Hi if it stop when the trigger is pulled the issue is with the motor.
stopping is caused by , low revs on motor or low compression or poor spark, sometimes faulty carby.
change spark plug , adjust valve ( when valve has some slight side movment it is ok if up and down , it should be tighter (valves usually under side cover near top ) increase revs a little ( make sure revs dont get rough when running high) set max revs to when the engine still runs smoothly at max.

Engine rpm serges sometimes and powernosle pressure drop some times


Gas engine surging and losing power sounds like dirty carb to me.
Pressure washers are often used and then sit for months before being used again. This often creates blockage in carb passages. If you have or install a fuel cutoff valve you can reduce this problem. When you are done pressure washing, turn off the fuel valve and continue spraying water until the carb empties ( the engine will sputter and go out) Next time you want to wash turn on the valve and you should be good to go.

Nov 1999 jeep grand cherokee (WJ) power steering to the max, either right or left, whines and draws smoke


driver error and nothing wrong with the power steering
the pump only produces pressure when the steering valves are up set and when the amount of turn is reached and the wheel is no further turned ., the pressure equalizes and then drops off until the valves are again upset
when the driver goes to full lock , left or right, and holds it tight against the lock stops, the pump keeps producing pressure until the pressure relief valve is activated
That is the whining sound as the valve vibrates
now the smoke is from the pump drive belt slipping from the extra load of the over pressurized pump
the leak is from the steering hoses starting to fail from the excessive pressure
good drivers with some intelligence goes to the lock stops then backs the wheel of just a bit to release the pressure on the pump
as I said driver error and it is all in the user manual

Loud repeating noise until the water trigger is pressed


Check the pressure washer for leaks. That sound is probably the unloader valve recycling as the machine slowly looses pressure and needs to build it up again to max pressure.
