Stihl RE 125 K Pressure Washer not working

\015 I have inherited a Stihl RE 125 K Pressure from my father-in-law (now deceased) and having not used it for a year or so cannot, for the life of me, get it to work.I connect the water (which I know is getting through); I connect the power and switch on and the pressurising pump goes for 3-5 seconds. But I cannot get anything out of the lance when I pull the trigger \342\200\223 it feels as though it\342\200\231s not opening a valve but is just loose.Could you assume that I\342\200\231m doing or not doing something very obvious (!) but how do I get this to work as I have had success with it in the past?\015

Answers :

Well you nearly right on this one,, if no water is coming out the lance the lance has a velve in it and the leaver pushes it in to open the velve so water can flow through it under presher this velve has got seized up due to being stud around not in use, take off the lever and strip the velve, inside the velve is a ball prest on by a spring free off the velve and the washer should work ok then

I have an older Landa Pressure Washer. The burner is not working. Once I get the machine running and water flowing to the pressure washer, with the wand pressed, I flip the burner on switch....and nothing...I have no idea how to work on a pressure washer burner. I have been told it could be the igniter, but I don't know how to fix it if it is. Any help is appreciated.


Check for 12V at the igniter connector with the unit running. If you have 12V and no igniter it may be stuck or bad. Thrun the unit off and read continuity across the DISCONNECTED igniter plug / terminals to the igniter. No resistance = open ignit ... Pressure Washers

I have a McCulloch FH160B power washer and it no longer builds up pressure. I haven't used this very much at all. I tore it apart and cleaned everything I could find. When i pull the trigger for the spray nozzle, I get line water pressure. When I release the trigger, the power washer sounds like it starts to build up pressure. When this was working correctly, the pump would shut off when the trigger was released. Any suggestions?

Good afternoon - I have a Whirlpool model LSR7233EQ0 washer. The washer works fine in regards to draining, filling, lower agitator works...however, the top agitator does not engage and almost sounds like grinding. However (I know you are not supposed to do this), when the machine is in the wash cycle, I push sideways on the top of the agitator and it then does engage and agitate. When I release pressure, the top agitator does not work. Thanks for your help, Michael


Whirlpool uses a split agitator design. The upper portion is called the auger, while the bottom is called the agitator. Between these components is a agitator cam assembly. This problem is commonly caused by worn agitator dogs or the agitator cam ass ... Dishwashers

Water pressure? I read somewhere that low pressure of the incoming water will make it so that the items on the top drawer will not be as clean. I don't see how this can be the case, as I thought that the way the washer worked was that the washer filled (at whatever speed) and then the machine itself pumped the water through the system at the appropriate pressure. Please clarify.


Mom...not true. The water fills the machine which then uses its own pump to spray the dishes with the water/detergent. If your dishes are not getting clean, use the recommended amount of detergent. Hard water will require a spot treatment like Jet ... KitchenAid KUDR01TJ Dishwasher

I started working with the Karcher KB4040 pressure washer and all was well for 1-2mins, then it sputered a bit and all power died. All hoses were still attached properly, it hadn't blown a fuse in my house and the fuse in the plug of the washer is working fine.When I switch it on I get nothing. Do you think the motor has packed in? I borrowed the machine from my neighbour who's away on holiday, so don't know much about age of the machine. Any advice much appreciated.
