I have come across this before, it can be that the motor has burned out and in that case it can be better to purchase a new machine.

It could also be the capacitor which is not a very expensive item to replace. What the capacitor does is jumps starts the motor so if it is broken then the motor will not start in. There is a test that you can do to see if it is the capacitor but it means opening the machine. If your machine is under warranty I would not advise you to open it and take it to your nearest Karcher supplier/Dealer in order to fix it for you.

What kind of oil do you use in a Campbell Hausfeld pressure washer pump? We are using my dads and we dont have an owners manual thanks


geno_3245_19.jpg

The pump uses SAE20 or SAE 30 non-detergent motor oil that fills up about half way
The engine uses 10-W30 motor oil that comes a bit more than half-way up dip stick.

Do not turn washer on its side or upside down to drain oil, or oil will run into carburetor.

If you have problems starting:

Water goes thru. have hydrulic oil to level. gun semas to stick on. NOT GETTING ANY PRESSURE AT NOSSEL.


Hydraulic oil?
Is this a pressure washer?
Pump should be half full of SAE20 or SAE30 non-detergent motor oil.
Engine should have 10W30 motor oil.

If you have a pressure washer ... and not water is coming out end of gun:
Take all hoses off machine.
Look at incoming water hose connection.
The should be a filter washer.
Clean or replace filter washer.
Hook up water and turn on water.
Water should come out other side of pump.
Turn on power washer and see if water coming out of pump is pressurized.
Now hook up pressure hose without gun.
Turn on pressure washer and see if water comes out of hose and is pressurized.
Finally, the gun may be bad.
We used to replace guns when they went bad.

No high pressure water


I have a SIMONIZ S2000 electric. I bought the unit about 8 weeks ago used it once. On the second use yesterday the unit didn't work as well, the pressure seemed only a bit better than hose pressure and soap did not dispense at any pressure. SO.... after much thought I turned the hose/tap pressure down so that I only got about 2-3 GPM instead of the typical 5-6GPM normally coming out of my hose....... it worked! Soap dispenses and spay is way better! It seems that if if the inlet hose pressure is high the pump doesn't work as well... go figure.

I have a Kew Hobby 80. The output from the lance is not constant but pulsates.


Could be the input water pressure is not sufficient. There is a pressure valve inside the machine that will cut off the motor if input pressure is too low or non existent.

Try a different source for the water input.

Karcher 3300 G water leak out rear of unit from white plasticplug


if its just a plug, remove it with an allen key and wrap a couple layers of teflon tape around it. That should stop, or at least slow down any leaks that are coming out of the threads.

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!

Loss of preasue and pulses in standby mode


Check the oil. This is what happens when it is low on oil with my pressure washer. Kind of a safety feature.
