Motor will not come on - Karcher Pressure Washers


Answers :

There is a red button at the rear of the motor and if you push it the motor is reset and it should work. Make sure that the amps on the electrical plug is 15 amps anad above. Most household amps are less than that and if it is 15 and above it has a lot of outlet connected to it. The best one I have found is the outlet near the washer and dryer. Good Luck

My Karcher K3.48M pressure washer remains in the low pressure mode even when I return the pressure nozzle to the high pressure position. How can this be corrected. The pump seems to build up the pressure because when I release the handle the pump motor stops. This is a fairly new pump which was purchased in the latter part of last year(2010). Could this have been caused by the detergent I have been using which is an automotive shampoo? Please help I love this washer and for the times that I u

Karcher K2.36 Pressure Washer I've just fired up my Karcher for the first time since last year and the motor started running fine, I then switched on the tap to allow the water through and the motor cut out. Now it won't restart, any ideas? I'm wondering whether the water supply should have been on before I switched the motor on but it's too late now! Help!

I have a Northstar pressure washer powered by a honda GC160 engine. The last time i used it, water leaks from the bottom of the unit, whether it is running or not. When running, the pressure is fine.
