SOURCE: no pressure on certain settings

Dear Osville,
It is not clear what type of lance or nozzel you have. You said that the machine works fine with the circulating water jet(the turbo). So it seems the machine is fine. I do sometimes service variable nozzels and variable lances. But the best solution is to replace nozzels and variable nozzles and lances with new ones. Regarding the fan spray setting it could have no pressure because it might be in the chemical setting. The chemical setting lets out a fan shape flow of water, but with less pressure. The chemical system only works on low pressure in domestic washers, that is why it needs a low pressure flat spray. The pencil jet has 2 jets comming out because if it is a lance or nozzel with ball bearings, these ball bearings must have stuck in a wrong position. Also 2 jets can come out, due to a damaged nozzel hole.
Altogether, the best advice is to buy a new nozzel or lance...which ever your machine uses. All Karcher machines have their own specific nozzels, lances and high pressure hoses. You cannot change these from one model to another.
Regards,
Fulltech.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: I have tried to use my Karcher washer model 411A

you have to lower the pressure at the lance for the detergent to be drawn into the hose. It works on a venturi principle.
on the lance you will have to twist or pull back the end for it to go into low pressure mode.

the easiest way to check it is working is to take out the lance extension , the bit that fits into the trigger on a bayonet fitting. run the machine and see if it then draws in detergent.

If it doesnt draw detergent then look to see if there is a detergent valve fitted to the filter that goes into the bottle and check that it is fully open. sometimes ther is a non return valve fitted into the filter too.
it could be that this non return valve has stuck. A poke with a bit of stiff wire should free it off its seat if it is that problem.

hope this helps a little

Squiggly lines are sign of nozzles being partially clogged. Try using a needle to clear nozzles. You will need to remove the nozzles to do this. When re-installing the nozzles make sure they are in line with the pressure bar.

My Kärcher K2.080 pressure cleaner (1450psi /


According to my search, Karcher has a 2 year warranty on this product. If you can get the serial number and model number off of it. They should be able to identify when it was made and then can honor that warranty. Otherwise the pump seals appear to be damaged by your description of the problem. Hope I've helped.
Best, Mark

How do i use the patio & deck cleaner on the karcher k5.68MD, when i add the liquid, what do i need to do for it to be pump up into the hose.


The nozzle on the end of the wand either twists or pulls out to get you into soap mode, the liquid you have in the tank come out real slow, it does not come out with the high speed nozzle. The idea is to soak the job with detergent, then blast it off with the high pressure water. Hope this helps.
