Electric pressure washer will not start
CLEAN FRESH WATER IS IMPORTANT FOR THESE PUMPS, I ALWAYS USE A HIT OF ARMOR ALL IN THE PUMP AFTER USE . YOU MIGHT SEE IF IT'S GETTING POWER TO THE MOTOR MIGHT HAVE A BAD GFIC ? PLUG IT IN PICK UP THE UNIT AND TRY DROPPING IT FROM A FOOT OFF THE GROUND, THIS JAR MIGHT SHOCK IT BACK TO LIFE ?

Karcher HDS745 pressure washer won't start. Power is confirmed to the cord. Won't make noise to lights.
A modern hot water pressure washer can have complex circuitry and it is a good idea to read the user instructions and have a diagram for reference when troubleshooting - certainly some dismantling will be necessary to trace the power rather further inside than the power cord.
If the unit hasn't been used for a time the pump could have frozen and have overloaded the motor when switched on - there is often a facility for the pump to be turned by hand to unfreeze the pump before switching on.
