    This is how I feel about your premium assistance plan-- if I have to pay for you to answer my question -you either do not know the answer or your power washer is not worth the money we paid for it and if you can't stand behind your equipment then I don't need it and won't buy anything else made by you.

Dear Pajodi,
I just came across your problem. I have just joined FIXYA, and solved various Karcher problems. First of all with all respect, the shop from where you bought the machine, must have told you all necessary instructions to operate your machine.
Now the soap always works on low pressure. So if you have a variable lance, turn it to low pressure. You can also remove the lance, and the soap will surely starts to work. With turbo lances, the soap system does not work. This concludes that the soap does not work when high pressure is used. Bigger machines do spray soap at high and low pressures. But these have regulating knobs, to swith off and on, the soap supply.
Regards,
MG.

Why doesn't soap come out of my Karcher 1750g gas pressure washer the soap will not come out thriugh the tube


The wand has a high and low pressure setting. When it is set to high pressure, no soap will come out. This is the way it is designed to work.

2600 PSI Pressure washer will not draw detergent up


I posted an answer to no soap on the Karcher Factory-Reconditioned 2,600 PSI 2.3 GPM Gas Pressure Washer G 2600 VHR. Same machine I suppose, but use the black 65 l degree low pressure nozzle.
It's in the manual , I missed it and had a hell of a time trying to figure it out. If that doesn't work check the check valve on the pump(Where the soap hose is) , see if it's gummed up.

Be careful taking it off there's a spring and ball bearing in there.

I have a karcher 3000psi 2.5GPM.Is not vaccum to bring the soap in the water line. Thank. Ed


Some soap injectors have an adjustment that must be turned to allow or increase the amount of soap that enters the line. To make it work, install the blace tip on the wand (black tip has a very large hole/nozzle). With the black tip installed there will be very little pressure in the discharge hose and soap will enter. If your machine does not have an adjustable injector you dont need to do anything for it to work. If soap does not enter, stop enging and turn off water. Remove the injector fitting and check for debris. There is uaually a spring and checkball (very simple design).

How do I get the soap started


with most pressure washers, the soap is mixed before the pump. in order for this to work correctly you must use the black spray tip. It is much larger then the others and delivers the soap at a much lower pressure. put the soap tube in the soap solution and it will be drawn up and out the tip.

Also, be sure the cap is turned to the direction that lets the soap in. It has a gradation on it and if it is turned all the way to the smallest (cap fully closed) very little soap will be injected into the stream.

On my karcher pressure washer, how do i get the soap to come out of the spray nozzle?


Two nozzels came with your washer one has a cone shaped head, the other one is blunt, attach the blunt one to the trigger. You will notice on the barrel of the nozzel it says "mix" turn the indicator line to "mix" and it should work. This is a very low pressure setting and is used to "apply" the soap only. You cannot despense soap in the hight pressure mode.

Dear johnny_river,
In general there are many causes why soap is not sucked. In a domestic and various other machines the soap is only sucked in low pressure. So one thing you can try is remove the nozzle or the complete lance from your gun. This will give a low pressure. If you attach a pipe directly to the machine soap inlet, and soap is not sucked, than the soap valve is "stuck closed" with soap. It is important that one must work with fresh water after using soap. This to flash the system from any soap left. So in a few words attach a pipe directly to the nipple at the machine and use low pressure. Important , you do not have to use soap to test....use fresh water. If this works( which it should)...than service the flow control tap or change it altogether.
Regards,
fulltech.
