Having problems with your Karcher PSI Electric Pressure Washer ?

I have a Kew Hobby 80. The output from the lance is not constant but pulsates.


Answers :

Could be the input water pressure is not sufficient. There is a pressure valve inside the machine that will cut off the motor if input pressure is too low or non existent.

\015\012Try a different source for the water input.
Pulsing is caused by an air block in the hose. Best way to clear it is to hold the trigger open for a couple of minutes and it should clear. Also pull the nozzle forward so it is only on hose pressure and keep trigger open till it clears the air bloc.

When I switch my karcher k4.97 washer on it just sits and pulsates(on off on off etc.)When I squeeze the trigger it runs perfect,but emits a very low pressure.Then when I release the trigger it reverts back to pulsating. I have tried the popular fixes like cleaning lances,filters,making sure its not airlocked etc.I have even fitted new parts(seals to the pump etc).There are no leaks what so ever.

Campbell Hausfield Pressure washer model 1549. After a few years of storage, I cannot prevent the powerful spray leaking from the connection between the Gun and the Lance. I replaced the O-Ring, and tried other means unsuccessfully. Spray from the joint is almost as powerful as spray from the lance nozzle. The Briggs and Stratton engine has been cleaned and operates well. The pump operates well. But the lance connection refuses to seal.


Hello,Most likely, the housing has split and seal is not being made. There is a chance that the hose is leaking where the fitting is crimped on (my experience, but different pressure washer). Are you able to see a leak when turned off b ... Campbell Hausfeld Pressure Washers
