    Same problem. I have a Karcher 395 and want to replace the broken inlet elbow, but I cannot figure out how to get the plastic valve assebly free from the cast metal cover to change it. Seems as thought the valve assembly is pressed into the housing. To force it out may damaage the whole assembly.

    I also need to replace the water inlet but the manuals do not indicate how to do it and there appears to be no service center anywhere near Orlando. These machines seem to be throwaways.

    I have a Karcher g 2500 VH and my inlet connector is stripped. In order remove it from the machine,. you have to remove a wire clip that holds it in place. Once the clip is removed, you simply pull the water inlet from the machine.

    To remove the clip, use a small screwdriver.

I found that by putting the housing in the freezer for a couple of hours, i was able to tap the metal and plastic body apart and install the new inlet elbow.

    I was tapping for 30 before I put it in the freezer as suggested. Work in three taps after a 3 hour freeze.... Seem the plastic shrinks more in the freezer than the aluminum house and it moves more freely....

Using the blunt end of a screwdriver or oter wide blunt tool, mount the assy on an opened viseso that the plastic is just clear of the vise jaws. The gently tap with a plastic mallet or lightweight hammer all around the aluminum enclosure. Slowly but surely it will work its way out.
On a firm flat wooden surface, reverse the procedure to "carefully replace the new part.

I can suggest where to look for instructions. Karcher USA has the manuals for all of their residential pressure washer models at this website:

And there are diagrams of the various Karcher 395 assemblies at this website:

Hope it helps!

Talon electric chainsaw has no power, changed the fuse etc...any ideas??

talon chain saws have two control switches before they will start. One is the trigger that you pull and the other is a button or lever that has to be held in at the same time. These two controls mean that you have to have both hands clear of the chain before it works.
