... Karcher PSI Electric Pressure Washer

I have a mi-t-m pressure washer in the ca-series.The problem is the motor shuts down at times with out any reason. The first time I used it was on a house with a well supplied water. It worked fine,brought it home where I used it with no problem. It was used twice that first year. I then winterized it.The second year brought it out to the same house,I was using it for about a half hour when it just shut off with out any notice. I noticed there was back pressure in the engine when I tried to rest


Mi-t-m pressure washers have a Low Oil shutdown feature that turns off the motor, this is often causing similar problems on this kind of appliance.Have oil checked, if oil is fine , then the sensor that controls oil pressure and activate ... Pressure Washers

Honda CU2400 1-MHC has been sitting in my parents garage for about 2 years. It was used once or twice. It looks new. I tried to start it and it wouldn't. I drained the gas and put new premium gas in it and it started but it won't stay running and the pressure is not what it should be. It doesn't clean as well as the electric one I used last time. So, my problem is, it won't stay running and when it is running it doesn't have enough pressure. Any ideas???

Hi I have a Troy-Bilt Pressure washer 2200 psi model 20292. I've used it only 4 or 5 times. It ran great for an hour today then it lost pressure. Seems like the pump is not working. The engine runs fine but no pressure. The water runs through the nozzel and I blew air in the lines to make sure there is no blockage and found no blockage even in the pump lines. Any ideas. Tom

I have a HD 2701 DR pressure washer that starts and runs fine and usually works fine the "first" time but if you let go of the trigger and then try to use it again you just get a trickle out of the end of the wand. Usually if you hold the thing open for a while it will kick in (sometimes it takes forever...). Any ideas? It sounds like some of the "unloader valve" problems are similar but I do not see an "unloader valve" in the parts lists for the 2701...

We have a Katcher HDS 3.5/30-4 M Ea. Was using it, stopped using it briefly in the middle of a job, pulled trigger again, and there was a lack of pressure. Went to the machine to troubleshoot. The "engine indicator light" is on. Checked the temperature of machine: fine. Water intake: fine. We have not been running it at high temperatures, but about 50 degrees C. The pressure was at about 2300 PSI before it stopped. Any ideas?

I have used the McCulloch (FH180A) three times over the course of two years. On my fourth use the pressure washer just surged on and off and I would get a tiny spray from the gun each time it surged. In other words it would do nothing. Please help... very frustrated. Thanks

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

I have a Karcher 330 electric power washer. When connected and set to highest pressure (on variable wand) I get no motor action unless I reduce wand setting, then I get a little boost but not much.

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.
