I started working with the Karcher KB4040 pressure washer and all was well for 1-2mins, then it sputered a bit and all power died. All hoses were still attached properly, it hadn't blown a fuse in my house and the fuse in the plug of the washer is working fine.When I switch it on I get nothing. Do you think the motor has packed in? I borrowed the machine from my neighbour who's away on holiday, so don't know much about age of the machine. Any advice much appreciated.

I have a Karcher 2,600 PSI 2.3 GPM Gas Pressure Washer G 2600 VHR that I have used once last summer. I have stored the PW in my basement with no fuel in the gas tank.

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.
