We have a Karcher G2500VH pressure washer.

(This didn't used ot be the case) I expect a leak somewhere inside the unit, but I'm wondering even more if there is a pressure switch which has failed that cased the leak. In other words, if I find and repair the leak and there is a failed pressure switch, it will likely only break again. I can'
