Sounds like a pressure switch is sticking. usually causes this problem especially after being stood for a while not used.

Per Andy, mine (Karcher K 5.68) had the exact same issue.
Removed the cover, motor cover (to free the whole block from housing), and four large bolts (which holds the piston unit on), to free the pump unit and pressure switch.
Pressure switch had the chemical inlet at the top - removed this by removing the two pins holding it in place.
Removed valve from pressure switch - cleaned and regreased with silicon grease.
Used wire wool wrapped round some cloth over a screwdriver, and twisted round a few times in the pressure switch housing to clean the corrosion off. Regreased the housing, replaced the valve, tested.
Reassembled unit.
Viola, all good.

I have a Craftsman power washer model 580 752020. When I start it up, turn on the switch the electric motor runs fine until I either close the trigger to the spray nozzle or press the trigger for power spray. The electric motor just shuts down, if I take my finger off the pressure and let the water run with no presssure the motor runs fine. My question is this. Is the capasitator on the electric motor the probable cause and is there a way to check out the capasitator to see if it is malfuncti

I have a Karcher 330 electric power washer. When connected and set to highest pressure (on variable wand) I get no motor action unless I reduce wand setting, then I get a little boost but not much.

Our craftsmen electric pressure washer stopped working while in use. We have power - red light on gfci and we tested the master switch - has power too. So what can be the problem? One post mentioned a jammed pump switch. What is that and where is it? We used it 2 weeks ago and it worked fine.


The pump switch they spoke of is an internal switch. It is activated by a valve so that when you let go of the trigger, the machine shuts off. This valve is stuck or the switch is bad. Usually the valve is the problem. I would go to Sears and get ... Pressure Washers

I'm trying to get a Durabuilt pressure washer (model DB1303) to work. After hooking up the water hoses I plug it in and turn on the power. It sounds like it's running but there is no increase in pressure and it runs continuously. I only let it run for about 10 seconds and then turned it off. I tried it a couple of times...no luck.
