Having problems with your Karcher K2.26 Electric Power Washer ?

I have a Karachr 3.91M pressure Washer that cycles on and off

\015 The washer motor cycles on and off when the switch is not activated. The solution to the problem was identified several times however I am unable to identify what specific sub-assembly contains the SPILL VALVE. Could someone provide me with more details?\015

Answers :

Dear frank_perra,
\015\012The spill valve is nearly always found near or under the micro-switch. If the 3.91M has its head in 2 parts....then the spill valve is incorporated with the top part of the head. In general,...machines that have the head in 2 plastic parts...the top part has the spill valve and the bottom part has the valves. Such machines it is not advisable to service the spill-valve. In these cases the whole top part is changed. This top part often contains the inlet-valve for the chemical. Care must be taken because this Chemical valve must be used again. Infact under this chemical valve you find the spill-valve unit. Then, as I said under the spill-valve unit you find the electrical micro switch. There are various other parts which are reusable when changing the upper head unit.
\015\012In other models you can change only the spill valve and not the whole head. As a rule....you always find the spill-valve where it is activating the micro switch, which stops the machine when the gun is closed. A faulty spill-valve will also result in low-pressure.

Turn water on then actuate wand trigger. Pressure washer leaks when wand trigger is actuated and has very low pressure/flow output. After releasing trigger the pressure cycles on - off at approx 1 second interval. I suspect that the plasstic oulet tube is leaking causing low pressure leak out of bottom when trigger is actuated and causes pressure switch to cycle when the trigger is released. Any Help? This pressure washer is approx 18 months old!


You gave a very close solution yourself for the problem. But other leakages can cause such symtoms.Forexample a leaking head or a leaking chemical inlet. These can be caused because the spill valve (pressure control valve) is stuck. When this valve s ... Karcher PSI Electric Pressure Washer

Hi, I have a Karcher K3 pressure washer. 18 months old, used maybe 6 hours total. For the past 3 hours of use the compressor/pump seems to cycle audibly but pressure at outlet hose seems constant, hence I did'nt worry. Now it does not start with switch on. I now hear a buzzing sound from the unit. The unit was last used 6 weeks ago.

I have a Frigidaire dishwasher, FDB-1100RHC, that is not cleaning dishes. My fiance cleaned the trap at the bottom of the washer, removing both the small basket and the larger mesh grid. After replacing both, the washer doesn't seem to have enough water pressure to spin the lower and/or upper arms. If I interrupt a cycle and open the door, water is dribbling out of the upper arms, but they are not rotating and do not move from whatever position you place them in. Both arms are completely uno

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

Champion dishwasher we have a champion freestanding dishwasher at my church. after the cycle is completed, the pressure guage behind the washer still shows 25-30 and it contnues to spray water. not forced by the motor, but more like a stuck open fill valve. if i turn off the water and run it, then turn the water back on, the valve is closed and does not let water freely in. butif i run it with the water on, it will continue to spray in freely after the cycle light goes out and you open the door.


If you turn the unit off from the circuit breaker will the water still run?if so the guts inside the solenoid valve are worn.you can call champion and get a kit to replace the worn parts and its not difficult to do.hope this helps. ... Dishwashers
