Having problems with your Karcher 2500 PSI Pressure Washer ?

I have a KARCHER Model K 2401 which onstart up has normal water pressure rather than the high. I can usually get it to work by removing the tip, pressing the trigger and running some water through without the tip on. The i replace tip and it will usually retain the high pressure. If I stop depressing the trigger I have to go through these same steps. It is like it loses prime. It works well once I get it started putting out the high pressure.

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?

No high pressure. has been a consistant problem for a while. Was able to get high pressure to "kick-in" before by removing nozzle, squeezing trigger to "prime" high pressure, then quickly put nozzle back in then it would work. now it doesn't work at all.

I have a HD 2701 DR pressure washer that starts and runs fine and usually works fine the "first" time but if you let go of the trigger and then try to use it again you just get a trickle out of the end of the wand. Usually if you hold the thing open for a while it will kick in (sometimes it takes forever...). Any ideas?
