Cant change the high pressure hose on a Karcher

Does anyone know how to get the high pressure hose off of a Karcher pressure washer? I am trying to attach my new telescoping wand.

It seems that Karcher has made it so their hoses cannot come off of the pressure washer.

There must be some way to get the hose out. Any info would be appreciated.

On the Kärcher, you have a bayonet mount at the base of the tip end of the pistol grip. This is where you attach different types of nozzles and gadgets after having removed the existing sprayer tube. Just push in and turn a quarter of a turn, then you pull it off the pistol grip. The hose is possible to remove from the machine as well, an ordinary threaded mount but since you need the pistol grip to regulate on/off this is probably not what you want to do. If the telescopic wand is made by Kärcher it should be very easy to snap it into place just like when you removed the sprayer tube/nozzle. If the attachment was made to fit Alto washers there is an inexpensive adapter that works very well. Good luck!

    Do you have the model in the category header or is it another model?

    On my rather old machine the hose is attached to the machine with a threaded mount. On newer machines the hose has quick connects that click into place, then there is a tab on the side of the mount that is lifted with a screwdriver to release the quick connect.

    Maybe there are some different variants that I don't know about. If you need a manual for your machine you can try downloading it from www.karcher.com (that is, if it is a relatively new machine).

I have a John Deere AC2600Gh power washer and I can't get the soap to work everything else works great it just won't **** the soap up when I am pressure washing I know that it must be something simple to...


Soap will only siphon into hose if there isnt any pressure in the hose attached to the wand.Remove tip from wand and see if it draws soap into hose,back pressure in wand hose will cause the spring and ball to seat/close off the inlet line for the soap otherwise water would blow out of soap line.

Karcher G 3000 BH Engine Pumping Problem


This may not be a motor problem. It sounds like your pump is not working properly and the motor is just following the pump. First thing to do is check for leaks in the pump, wand hose, gun etc. It may also be a blown water seal inside the pump.

I have a karcher K3.98 pressure washer. The unit surges when I put the wand on and then it stops working. I tried cleaning the wand (didn't make any difference) I then tried another wand from my son's unit...


Dear davedulmage,
To see if the unit is OK....first you must switch it on without water and without high pressure hose and gun. If machinr works smoothly, try by attaching a water supply. Now run the pump with water coming out of the outlet. If also in this case all runs smooth, then attach high pressre hose with gun but without lance. Put on the machine with gun open(to reduce initial resistance) and when you see a clear flow of water coming out...close the gun. The machine should stop. In this case I am suspecting that when you open again the gun the machine will not work. So it seems that when pressure is built in the pump a fault is occuring in the Spill Valve or also called Control Valve. When the gun is closed and pressure built up, this spill valve contracts and switches the pump off. When the gun is opened, the spill valve extends, putting the machine on and closing a valve at the base of the spill valve. So in your case it seems that the spill valve needs to be renewed. A spill valve gets stuck by incorrect using of the pump. For example leaving the pump with pressure in it for a long time. Also it gets stuck by detergents and chemicals. Sometimes I lubricate Spill Valves with high quality silicon grease....but it is much more practical to change it. When a new spill valve is put in....always run the pump with no load. This by usiing the gun without lance or wands, resulting in low pressure. If all OK...add a lance or wand that you are sure it is good. One final thing....to get to this spill valve you must put apart the body and expose the pump. If you are not that good at doing this job...it is better done by a more knowledgeable person. But changing the spill valve is worth it....because it is cheaper than a new machine.
Regards,
Fulltech.

Pressure surge on and off for 2 seconds w/ new Karcher


It can be one of three conditions,
  1. The water supply in is not sufficient
  2. The pump oil is low
  3. The seals are bad in the pump.
I would check the first one first as this is the most common problem.
The water supply hose should be a high volume hose of at least 1/2 inch but 5/8 inch or greater is best.
