Having problems with your Pressure Washers ?

Extensive smoke there is a continual amount of smoke coming from the funnel


Answers :

Is this a karcher hds unit?

There is a device by the air intake that looks like a semi-circle. This adjusts the air flow to the burner chamber. You can adjust this according in order to get rid of the smoke but you have to get it right in order not to have to much air in order to blow out the flame.

If this does not work you may have to clean out the fuel injector and housing. Then if it continues you may have to clean the exterior of the coil.

If you are to clean the exterior of the coil make sure you take the cover off from the bottom three bolts (bolt on to base of machine) and not the three bolts at the top of the housing(were fuel injector is). You can use a karcher product called RM 81 which acts as a degreaser and pressure wash the coil( making sure all electrics are covered up).

I have come accross this a few times as the injector sprays diesel on the coil if the air flow is not fixed correctly and then the smoke you are seeing is the machine burning off the diesel that is on the coil.

I have a Frigidaire UC DW Model FDB250RHB2 The unit is not a year old. It is not getting dishes very clean. I read similar posts. I found that there is water coming from top nozzle but not a very impressive stream. It is weak enough that most of the water misses the funnel on top rack. Also not top or bottom arms spin. Last week when i would quick peek during wash cycle there seem to be water coming out of top arm's holes but no spin. We also are getting heavy white staining on glass ware

In the last month I have noticed that my dishes aren't getting clean. My dishwasher is less than a year old and has done a great job so far. I tried adjusting the amount of rinse aid and the amount of soap but nothing works. the dishes come out "clean" without food residue on them, but they are so cloudy that I don't want to use them. I will go back to handwashing and sell the dishwasher is this is the way it is going to be cleaning. (The repair guy said nothing is wrong with it.) It is mod

Water did not drain completely and there's quite a fair amount of water left at the bottom. The model (Jenn-Air JDB7910AWW). This was the first time that any problem has occurred. Also the lights, for programming did not come on at first. After a couple of attempts they did come on.

G.E. GSD5130 When the dishwasher is pumping out the water a small amount comes in the rotating sprayer head. At the end of the cycle the dishwasher still has water in the bottom. The amount of water varies from just a little to over an inch. I replaced the spring loaded check valve a couple of months earlier and everything worked fine until now. What should I check? Thankyou.


Mike, I just ran into the same problem. I found a second check valve located in the outlet hose of the ELECTRIC drain motor. This motor is located at the right rear underside of d/w and is used only for backflush of the filter. When the unit goes th ... GE GSD5130 Dishwasher

D63 continually empties. is there a bypass valve on the pump, as although water is coming in, (and being pumped out the drain hose), there is also a jet coming back into the filter housing, so the arms don't have enough pressure to spin above about 6 rpm! The time switch appears to be operating correctly.

I heard an odd noise mid cycle and when I looked, smoke was coming out of the machine. I opened it up and it wouldnt shut off i threw the breaker to shut it off, opened it up and smoke was pouring out of the latch hole. Is this the control board and is it replaceable? At what cost? Is it worth repairing or should I just replace the whole unit?

My portable dishwasher hose that attaches to the faucet is to short for where I want my portable dishwasher to sit. I would like for it to sit in one spot. I am not allowed to alter or cut holes in the side of cabinets, I am renting. Is there an extension for the hose to the faucet? If not, what can I do to make the hose longer? If I really have to I will cut the two hoses that comes from the dishwasher to the faucet, but I would rather have an extension first.


You should be able to find extension or replacement hoses that you can use to extend the existing hoses at a hardware store. If you need to join two hoses that have female connectors, adaptors with two male connections are available. ... Dishwashers

I have FGHD2433KF1, and there is a leakage from the splash guard. I open the front cover of the door and noticed that when a large amount of water rushes against the front door, water comes over the gasket and fills the splash guard. The dishwasher stops the water when the water is just about to reach the top of the guard, but sometimes the water comes over the top of the guard. That is when the leakage occurs.
