Karcher 360M pressure washer pulsating problem when idleing


Hello,


unfortunately these little units have this problem commonly, 9 times out of 10 it will be the plastic head or the plastic valve block on the unit will be cracked and leaking slightly... it builds up pressure then leaks out and tries to build up the pressure again and this just reoccurs over and over...

you can get this repaired but is normally about half the cost of a new unit, if the pressure is still okay i would probably recommend just keep using it until it proper dies...

If you do get this fixed, we have studied into this and believe the main cause of heads cracking is warm water say if your inlet hose is in the sun for a period of time this can cause the water to become quite hot or if the unit sits and water trapped inside the head assy freezes can also cause this. Hope this helps Kind Regards Brad

The engine on my Karcher K2.26 turns on when you turn the switch and continues to run rather than just when you pull the wand trigger. Lower pressure also results.Any solutions?


yea mate ya bypass will be stuck(the little valve that turns the unit on or off) also if not that there is a little micro switch attached to the valve this may of dislodged for some reason... commonly happens if unit has sat for a period of time not used

Karcher k 2.36 smoking and flashes of light inside the machine.


Hi:
This sounds like a short circuit or motor problem. They are relatively easy to take apart. If you see a burned wire or connector this can be repaired. If not, it is the motor and probably too expensive to repair considering the price of a new one.

Karcher K 3.68 M operation


These units have pressure valves that automatically turn off the pump once the pressure is high enough. The pressure switches do fail and sometimes stick and act as you've described.

Karcher/Winner 11 - motor pulses when hose is not operating


Hi, I had the same problem, Replaced the O rings and the rubber seals and cups inside the pressure washer and eventually the hose itself burst. Turns out the hose was leaking, internally between the inner sheath and the outside plastic cover, for quite some time and this caused the pulse. New hose and pressure cleaner is as good as new.

Trouble with Karcher Pressure washer


Dear Pgarciax,
It is important that you must have mentioned the model number of your Karcher. Just the same I can surely say that your machine's fault lies in the "SPILL VALVE"
When the gun is open and pressure is being produced, the spill valve is in a relaxed position. Also it has at the bottom a valve, which when pressure is produced it is closed. If this does not close due to dirt or corrosion, the pessure goes down. Now when you close the gun,pressure forces the spill valve down to close the electrical system. Now if the "o" rings of the spill valve are damaged, the machine will start going on and off while in stand-by. So if you know how to locate the Spill Valve, all one has to do is change it with a new one.
In some Karcher machines there are 2 spill valves. One regulates pressure and the other one is for switching off the machine when the gun is closed.
Low pressure could also be due to faulty suction or delivery valves. Most probably the suction valves.
But when saying that there are short interruptions while in stand by, I stick to the fact that the spill valve needs renewing.
Regards,
MG.
