Question about Karcher K2.26 Electric Power Washer
For sure the leak has to be fixed. Most probably the O rings that prevent the oil coming out or going into the head are damaged. You can open the cover first using a Torx T15 screw driver. The head can be removed by using Alen Keys in many cases. If you find the compartment of the oil under the pump head full of water the seals are damaged.
Now before one changes the seals, the pistons mustbe checked. If the pistons ( 3 in number have scrathes or grooves it is useless changing the oil seals. In that case the pistons must be changed.
If the pistons are found in perfect condition..( which oftenly are not)...then oil seals can be changed....and also all gaskets. This job is better done by a qualkified technician......but if you have the tools and a bit of mechanical back-ground...it is child;s play. Always when working see that electricity is not connected. I wish to add that the high and low pressure seals must be damaged also. Thus the pressure drops. Also sometimes instead of oil they are using a type of grease. You can see it as it resembles butter. As I said if you have the tools and all spares available....go ahead and good luck!!
