    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!

Karcher 395 motor does not stop running

if your machine was factory fitted with 'total stop system' TSS and has always stopped in the past then it is an issue with many possible parts !

does the machinw still operate at full pressure ?
if the machine can produce full pressure then it only has to produce 20 % more to actuate the TSS piston. When the stop piston moves it presses against an electrical switch tjat breaks the circuit. Producing 20% more pressure requires that your machine has no water leaks in the pump, hose, trigger gun or lance. Once you release the trigger the path back from the trigger to the pump TSS piston must be fully sealed.....

If you have a Karcher then you should always post your machines barcode.
The karcher barcode is on a silver sticker and is usually 15 digits long. Example 156987400000123 is actually model 1.569-874.0 and serial number 00123....

Hi i have a karcher k4.91 and it is lossing pressure and leaking from inside the casing..what would be the likely cause.. many thanks

This could be a problem in the pump, the seals may have been damaged if it is an older machine through age. You could check a local karcher supplier/dealer and they should be able to replace that for you. Another problem maybe that an inlet elbow could be loose and does not seal correctly so it may need replacing.

These solutions depend on what area inside the machine the water is leaking from.

My Karcher 2.36 is leaking at the inlet point can someone tell me how to fix it

This sounds like the o-ring inside the end of the high pressure hose could be damaged and is in need of replacing. If this is not the case you may need to have the inlet replaced.

Take a socket that is the same size as the black plastic and tap it down through the hole until it comes out. I have done several of these this way.

I have electric Karcher 330. i did not use for a couple years. tried out today from storage, it seemed the water jet was not strong, so may be the pumper problem or I need to clean the inlet hose? thanks!

the problem is your water seals,
you need to change them,
over time it became dry rot.
have the pump service at the same point.
the springs in the valves can be rusty and brittle..
