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

I have a Karcher B402 Pressure Washer and when i plug it in and turn it on - nothing happens, not a sound. I have checked the fuse and the plug itself and this did not help. I contacted a service technician and they said it would cost £45/hr to have a look and it probably wasn't worth fixing! Is there anything i can try to narrow down the problem/fix it myself. Any ideas what might have gone wrong? Sorry i can't give you more info. Cheers

I have a Rebadged Siemens dishwasher model no. SE6TIE1GB / 13 TKD 795 / 2. When turning on, the dishwasher makes the "normal" noise of washing but after less than a minute it stops and refuses to wash anything. Ive tried pressing the reset button but no help. Worth mentioning, the night prior to that, I switched on the dishwasher before sleeping and when waking up at 5am, it was still washing so I manually turned it off and opened the door to find some water at the bottom of the tray.

When trying to start the dishwasher, pressing the Normal wash button, the dishwasher gives a huge clunk and then it trips the circuit breaker. Upon resetting the breaker, I tried the next button over, which is Soak and Wash, and it seems to go thru the cycle fine. Another time I tried the Normal button, but put the left dial on Rinse and it started up, but it would clunk periodically and it seemed to have a 'hot' smell. I'm worried to use it - what could this be? Is there anything else I can try

My daughter's friend bought a Ford Explorer 1997 with approx. 150k on it. After only a few months, it quit working? He replaced the battery, alternator, starter and the whole ignition switch on the steering column. I ran for 2-3 weeks and now he says "Won't do anything". No, lights, no starter noise when trying to crank, no interior lights ... nothing. He took the battery out and tried it in another car... it worked fine. Any suggestions? I'm thinking a electronic control module.

I used the "rinse only" cycle on the dishwasher a little while ago. I've never used this cycle before. After dinner I tried to start the dishwasher, but no other buttons on the panel respond except the last one I used, which is the rinse only cycle. I push and push, I tried pushing and holding, nothing works, I get no lights no anything. I've been using the "light wash" cycle for a long time and I normally just push the start button and the last cycle used starts automatically, so I wasn't a
