Can thee hose be fixed if it has a leak.
If the leak is on the OUTBOUND side that is towards the Nozzle, it CAN be repaired but for safety I would strongly recommend a new hose. Main reason being that the pressure generated in that hose will blow MOST joints you put in there.
If it is the input side then just get a hose joiner and install it.

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.

Karcher k1800 no pressure
In my experience with karcher, and other brands, you will be money ahead to replace the pump entirely. Pumps usually cost around $125. There are some times rebuild kits available, but they will often cost over half the amount of an entire pump. Add to that the unloader valve, & you will be way past the cost of a new pump.
