Question about Karcher G 2600 VH Gas Pressure Washer

Open Question

2600VH pressure washer The problem is with the connector between the hose and the spray gun. The o-ring that is inside the connector keeps "blowing" . A piece about 1/5 of the o-ring actually looks like it has been cut off with scissors or something. We replace the o-ring and the washer will run for several minutes and then it blows again.

SOURCE: No pressure in the pressure washer

Leaving the hose on shouldn't cause a problem so don't panic. It sounds like you could just have a dirty nozzle. Try sticking a pin or something in the end of the nozzle (machine not running) and giving it a clear out. also if it is a two peice gun, split it and tap the squirting part on something clean like a workbench to clear any debris that might have got in there.

SOURCE: north star petrol pressure washer.

Sounds like the regulator is sticking or is airbound. loosen the water connection and then tighten it back. Could also be that the trigger gun is faulty or needs adjustment. Hope this helped

SOURCE: can't get the spray gun onto the hose from the washer...no manual

Your posting is incomplete, so I'm not quite sure what we're dealing with here.  I understand the machine and the high-pressure hose are Karcher - right?  Is the gun also a Karcher part?  If all are Karcher parts, they should fit unless the screw threads have been damaged.  If they are not all Karcher parts, they will not fit because Karcher connectors are different from almost all others.
Please post again if this doesn't help, giving as much detail as possible, and I'll see what else I can offer.

SOURCE: My Karcher 411A seems to have lost pressure.

Sounds more like a clog on the intake side. Check the filter and the hose on that side.

Cannot separate two parts of gun and nozzle. How to get them apart?


soak it in wd-40 over night. Twist the DISS connector to work it loose the retract the neck of this DISS connector and pull them apart. Use plyers if you need to. Change the o-ring inside the connector(hardware store can help you) and spray all connections and trigger mechanisms after each use, drain the hose and use pump saver after each use.

I bought a honda pressure washer power boss 3000. I load the gasoline, start the machine, but pressure water is not coming out from the trigger. i tried so many things , but can t get started.


If you are using a water tank for water supply, remove the water supply line from the pressure washer and connect a water hose from a faucet. Turn the water on, then crank the engine. Pull the trigger of the spray gun until water comes out. When then water starts to spray properly the release the trigger, shut engine down with pressure on the line then reconnect the water supply from the tank to the pressure washer. If this fixes the problem then the problem was "air-locked"! Happens alot with new pressure washers that have never been run. If you need any other help, please email me @ [email protected]

I require a "O" ring for my hose connection into the gun model number RE116K where can I buy them from??


If you have a hose connect that screws onto the trigger gun with a metric fine thread looking fitting then you would need this o-ring set

STARTS AND RUNS FINE BUT WHEN I START WASHING IT QUITS SPRAYING AND THEN BUILDS PRESSURE AND KILLS ENGINE


The reason it stops spraying might be a clogged gun, hose or nozzle-tip.
The reason for pressure buildup killing the engine might be a stuck unloader valve in the pump.

While you are checking each component of the "output" side, spray some penetrating lube into the "input" side of the pump (where the garden hose connects) and let it be working on the unloader valve.

Fix the spraying problem first:
Start at the nozzle and verify that it is open by using low-pressure air. Clean or replace as needed. Next check the hose (with nozzle and gun unhooked) and finally the gun/trigger mechanism.
All must be clear and open to perform correctly.

Next, pour a few ounces of power steering fluid (or similarly LIGHT oil) into the garden hose, attach it to the pump and turn on the water supply.

Leave the "output" hose, gun, etc. UNHOOKED and point the output port of the pump (where the high-pressure hose connects) towards a vacant, safe area.
Startup the engine and allow the oil in the garden hose to work its way thru. (About 1 -3 minutes of run-time.) Shut it down and attach the high-pressure hose.
Hope this solves the problem!

Ex-Cell VR2500 Builds Pressure but Won't Spray


I have a similar problem and diagnosed it to be a problem with the gun. I spoke to a technician that services this pressure washer and he walked me through all the diagnostic steps. The pump is working because there is pressure being built up and the gun sort of works because you can get water out before the washer is started. The technician said that the mechanism inside the gun is either clogged or broken. I am going to Home Depot or Lowes to purchase a new gun and will try it tonight. Guns are only about $30-40. He said generic is fine as long as the thread matches and PSI is in range. Good luck!

Karcher 2400: Won't stop spraying.


Dear sdadean,
I am assuming that when you said "wand" you mean the "gun". Myself I rarely service guns. But there are types that are serviceable and others that are not. If the brass elbow had 2 stainless steel pins....then this is a gun that you must replace with a new one. And putting oil, is the worst enemy....because oil damages O rings. Now the high pressure hose is fitted inside the brass part by being sealed by a black O ring and a white backing flat O ring. I do not know if these that you saw. Now if the brass has only one pin coming out from the back, this type of gun can be serviceable. Look at the brass at the place where the lance is attached. If you see a hexagon hole, this is a plug that can be unscrewed with an allen key. Behind the plug there is a ceramic seating. Then you find the valve and a spring. If the steel valve and the ceramic seating are damaged, the whole gun must be replaced.
To tell you the truth I usually change the gun and fit a new one, when the machine keeps on going because the gun does not close. I find it the best and the most safe way of solving the problem.
Regards,
Fulltech.

Karcher/Winner 11 - motor pulses when hose is not operating


Hi, I had the same problem, Replaced the O rings and the rubber seals and cups inside the pressure washer and eventually the hose itself burst. Turns out the hose was leaking, internally between the inner sheath and the outside plastic cover, for quite some time and this caused the pulse. New hose and pressure cleaner is as good as new.
